Parent information evenings or orientation programs

1. WENZIT Working for Families

Engaging families in discussion about current research into tools for learning and for building positive relationships can be most empowering and can help to reduce stress on all sides. Parents understanding what schools are seeking to achieve for their children as well as understanding some of the simple learning strategies to help support their children’s learning and emotional development in partnership with teachers are critical to student success. Discussing patterns of emotional growth and well- being, especially to maintain self-esteem in adolescents, can be a great way to help school work for families.
