You are a vital part of the school programme. No one knows and cares for your child as well as you do. Because of your selfless love and care you are the greatest influence on your child's life, which the best teacher in the world cannot replace. The school is only an extension of the home and we encourage your involvement in establishing a balance between the home and your child's school experience. We have developed workshops, which will provide you with information.
