Helping at Home
Families play a big part in
a child's learning every day, and can support and build on what
they learn at school. We encourage families to have a close
relationship with our school and support their child's learning
Most importantly, we encourage parents to get to know
their child’s teacher and our Principal. We want families to
share any concerns and ideas and get regular feedback on their
host workshops & information
sessions for families to help support learning at home - check
the newsletters for details!
parent/caregiver meetings and
conferences provide an opportunity to share and talk about
how your child is getting on at school. Conferences involve the
student, parents and/or caregivers, and the teacher.

Ways to Ask your Kids
"So how was school today?"
- great resource leaflets from the
Ministry of Education that explain the National
Standards for Reading, Writing & Mathematics for
different Year groups, where your child should be
after 1 - 8 years at school, and how you can support
them at home:
Link to the
Ministry of Education's "parents" webpage
for more useful information about your child and their
education, what they learn, how their progress is
assessed and how they can succeed with your support.
The Education Review
has produced a useful booklet called
"How is my child doing? Questions to ask at school"
to help families find out meaningful information
about their child's progress at school.
