The Home and School are Partners in Education

Education of your child requires teamwork between home and school. Both have responsibilities to carry out if a child is to become a successful learner.

The school has responsibilities to carry out in educating your child:

  • to provide an educational program that will be challenging and motivating, while keeping basic skills as the central focus
     
  • to foster development of the skills and citizenship that are needed for living in our changing society
     
  • to maintain a safe school

As parents you also have responsibilities to carry out in educating your child:

  • to make sure your child comes to school daily and on time (unless s/he has a valid reason not to attend that day)
     
  • to make sure that your child gets enough sleep each night
     
  • to see that your child is dressed appropriately for school
     
  • to have a place at home where your child can do homework and read, free from distractions.
