On behalf of the staff at Voxpop International School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year! I hope you have had an enjoyable summer. The children have certainly had lots of exciting stories to share.
We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential .We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities
We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
We in school will do everything we can to help your children to do their best.
Can you ensure that, as parents you put a great value of school and education? Explain to your child that treating everyone with respect, being on time and in school every day, wearing the correct uniform and working hard in school is important to you. They are also important life skills. The value you place on these will be the value your child holds.
We are all busy people, but you must put a routine in place whereby children know they must do their home learning – homework, reading etc… At this time, turn the television/computer off. Use the television/computer as incentives for work done – they will value it more.
Remember that you can walk in and share your feedback and suggestions with me. Let us work together to make your child a wonderful human being.
Wishing you a great and happy year ahead!
