Parents play just as important a role in the educational process of a child, as does the educator.  The primary task of the parent is to create a safe environment, wherein the child can develop his full potential.  This includes, among other things, the following:

  1. Supplying the child’s needs in respect of food, clothing, health care and love.
  2. Basic education which includes good manners, acceptable behavior and respect of authority.
  3. To have a positive attitude toward the school in order to ensure that you are a co-worker in the education of the child.
  4. To realize that educators do occasionally make mistakes, but not to break down the authority of the teacher in the presence of the child.  The same is expected from the educator.   Mutual respect is necessary to ensure a successful education.
  5. Loyalty TO THE SCHOOL.
  6. At the Foundation Phase (Gr 1 - 3) it is expected of parents to listen on a daily basis to learners’ reading lessons and to help with the learning of new spelling words from time to time.
  7. At the Intermediate Phase (Gr. 4 - 6) parents are expected to control the learners’ homework and to sign their homework books. Parents must endeavor to develop a routine so that the child will learn to do homework on a regular basis.  Learners will need help initially in Gr. 4 with the preparation of tests.
  8. At Senior Phase level, parents need to see that learners start working independently and planning ahead for the preparation of tests and projects.
  9. Constant parental involvement, is very crucial.  We understand that our parents all have work responsibilities, but the 10 - 15 minutes spent each day with your child, will prove to be worthwhile.  Your reward will be a happy, contented child who makes good progress.
  10. A very important facet of this is the presence of the parents at the Parents’ Evenings.  The learners receive their reports at this time and their progress is discussed with the teachers.
