After coffee on Friday Mornings Janice organizes parent education meetings. They are a lot of fun and a time for discussion and learning. Last week was about Restorative Practice and how that works at school.
The parents have decided that they would like a couple of sessions with Leanne our Social Worker in Schools to go over some parenting tips. It's never too late to pick up new ideas. Being a parent is a hard job and it's good to know that we are not alone with the issues we have to address with our children.
The parents would also like a session on iPad apps and how and when to use them to help with the children's learning. The leadership team had just learnt about Augmented Reality and we were keen to show off the knowledge so that parents could engage children in reading.
So here we are-one cup of coffee and a fresh muffin later. Learning together is the way to go at WSS.
