Connecting home and school makes us a great community of learners.
A Parent-Teacher-Student Conference is an effective way through which parents can discuss several issues that they feel are hindering their child’s learning. Face to face communication with the teacher immensely helps the parents to plan out the learning process of their child. It is a great opportunity to share academic progress and growth based on classroom observations, testing data, assessments, portfolios, and assignments; learn from parents, so that one can be better informed about the students’ strengths, needs, behaviours, and learning styles.
The Parent-Teacher-Student conference provides an opportunity to create a connection between home and school. The teacher can set clear expectations and goals for the student, demonstrating various individualized study strategies to assist with learning. The student can self-reflect, critique his/her own work, seek clarification or assistance with his/her learning and becomes accountable for their learning and performance.
On August 18th, between 2- 4:30 p.m., the Parent-Teacher-Student conference was held to discuss the academic performance of the students in Unit Test 1, for the Grades 6-10 of Cambridge Board. Teachers shared the areas of improvement in each subject, shared the plan of action and took assurance from parents to monitor and assist the students at home.
After all, we believe that:
“Children are the priority,
Change is the reality and
Collaboration is the Strategy.”
