Research shows that parent involvement ranks as one of the most important factors in a child’s success at school. At SSC, we are committed to forging a strong link with our parents and the community. We always appreciate assistance in preparing classroom materials, reading to students, helping in the library or during lunch, supervising computer activities or on field trips, forming school clubs, assisting in drama productions and in community activities.
Parents are expected to co-operate with the staff to ensure self-transformation of inappropriate student behaviour. ‘Hands off’, ‘no put downs’, ‘no bullying’ are expected codes of behaviour.
We would like parents to volunteer to be parent representative for each class. Parent representatives will help with the needs of the class by:
We distribute a class contact list for all parents within the class. The contact list enables parents to keep in touch with each other and organise social interactions for their children outside of college hours. It also provides an important phone tree during emergencies such as floods, whereby each parent contacts the parent in the list below them to advise of updates, such as whether the school is open during severe weather events.
Parent workshops and Information Sessions are also conducted to enhance the partnership of parents and the college.
