Dear Parents and Guardians, 

STUDENT PROGRESS
EIS students understand the purpose of their learning

  -  So learners must be set goals and learn to set clear goals for themselves.

Now is a good time for parents to talk about learning at home and discuss goals and objectives with students. Students have received feedback in class on their progress so far this year and teachers will be working with them to set goals. Parents have now met with teachers and will have a better understanding of learning to date for their child.  
It is important to approach any conversation about school is a supportive manner. Many students want to avoid the topic!  But, ask them their opinion on something general to get the conversation going.
It is better not to ask yes/no questions. Ask questions that invite thoughts, opinions, and long-winded answers. If your child is encountering a problem at school, ask how you can help? Sometimes parents tend to formulate their own solution strategies without the input of the key individual in the situation – the child.

Some questions to ask are:

  • If you could change three things about your school, what would you change?
  • What do you think makes a good friend?
  • What do you think make a good teacher?
  • What do you think make a good student?
  • What have you done in school (or school-related sport or activity) that you are most proud of so this year?
  • Name three things we could do, as a family, to help you in school.
