Come Learn With Us.

During the course of the school year we wish to host a range of Parent Workshops focused on building a shared understanding of how our DC learners GROW. DISCOVER. DREAM. These workshops are aimed at building a ‘parents as partners’ approach to supporting students as they journey through school life by:

 

  • Informing parents of the different aspects of the IB programmes (PYP, MYP, DP, CP)

  • Equipping parents with relevant and current strategies to support learning at home.

  • Identifying and addressing needs that arise from the parent community.

  • Strengthening relationships and communication between the school and home.
