9. Liaise with Other Parents


It is important to keep in contact with other parents because this will empower you to communicate your own opinions and it helps create a link and commitment of parents to school. There are many examples on how to liaise with other parents.

  1. You can join the parents’ association.
  2. You can talk regularly to the parents of children who attend the same class.
  3. You can be part of a “parents’ café”, monitored by a counsellor who speaks your mother tongue and knows your culture. There you may discuss several school-related topics such as homework, health, nutrition, adolescence.
  4. You can participate in activities and initiatives of your own neighbourhood because they foster your family’s integration into the community and help everybody more aware of your own culture.
