“Behind every young child who believes in himself is a parent who believed in him first, so the most important key to child’s success is positive involvement of a parent” – Mathew L. Jacobson
EPS perceive parents as important stakeholders to build a strong community of learners. Believing in the truth that parent-school consociation is an integral part in the process of student learning, EPS organized an orientation session specially designed for parents new to IB programme. It was conducted on Saturday 28th June 2019. This included an informative session about IB programmes at EPS conducted by the Head of School followed by programme specific breakaway sessions lead by programme coordinators. The PYP parent orientation was lead by Ms. Humera Riyaz – PYP programme coordinator and Middle Year’s session by Dr Fraz. The orientation programme was a great opportunity to be cognizant to each other and foster Parent-school partnership. It was specially tailored in a way to serve the emerging queries of new parents about the programme and designed in a way to make them aware of programme requirements. .
PYP Parents got excited when they became an active part of learning by participating in group activities like making essential agreements, bingo and connected their hopes and dreams for their kids with mission EPS. They were fascinated to know that this is how their kids study in EPS which makes learning such a fun. It was enthralling to see their reflections flashing on the screen as they shared their big takeaways from the session. .
Active participation by parents in both the Orientation programmes made it a grand success.
