Academics

To enhance learning opportunities for all children by recognising each child’s unique individuality, academic, social and cultural strengths and interests.

Enforce Healthy Habits

You can’t perform well when you don’t feel good. To help your child have the best chance at doing well in school, make sure she follows healthy habits at home.

Stick to a Routine

Most kids thrive on structure and will respond well to routines that help them organize their days. The key is to make it the same every day so your child knows what to expect.

Designate a Space

At school your child has a desk or table where they work. There is plenty of light, lots of supplies, and enough room to work. Why not provide them with the same type of environment for homework?

Read, Again and Again

It is often said that children spend the first several years learning to read, and the rest of the lives reading to learn.

Always keep Learning

Look for ways to teach your child throughout the day. For example, cooking combines elements of math and science.

Expect Success

Perhaps the most important way you can support your child’s efforts at school is to expect him to succeed.
