Guideline for Parents


3. Show that You Care


It is important to show that you care about your child’s learning and progress at school.

  1. Encourage your child to attend school every day and to participate in every planned class. It is important that your child has the required materials/equipment for each class.
  2. Learn about the required hygiene rules and comply with them.
  3. Communicate with your child about what she/he has learnt every day and show interest.
  4. Check your child’s homework. If you cannot help because of the language, know about the existing support systems through the class teachers and ask for help.
  5. Value the learning your child does at school as something that will be valuable for his/her future life in any community.
  6. Another way to show that you care is to be present during welcoming days, parents’ meetings, celebrations organized by the school, graduations, etc.
