Parent Involvement >> Parent Helpers
Parents are guided to learn the routines of the classroom and be able to assist children in the learning process.  Teachers value parental assistance to help with reading, writing, spelling and computer activities and for special activities like sports and excursions.

The role of Classroom Helpers

Teachers and children value your assistance in the classroom. Parental assistance can often enhance the learning environment through increased adult participation. Involvement in school programs may provide parents with new insights and understanding about their children, fostering the links between home and school learning.

Individual teachers are happy to discuss details regarding suitable times, skills or resources you could provide. Often a brief orientation session for parents is conducted early in the year to outline activity purposes and expectations.
