Parents

Parent Engagement

The founding vision of the school emphasizes the important role that parents play in the education of children and promoting a vibrant school community. This role is critical and we are committed to collaborating with parents in a deep and meaningful way.

Beyond arranging academic-focused or issue-specific meetings with teachers or administrators, over the years there have been a number of ways for parents to be involved in the school, including:

  • Open classroom days
  • Performances and assemblies
  • Field trip support
  • Event planning
  • Coffee mornings and Tea evenings
  • Book clubs
  • Workshops

 

Our goal is to continue to deepen this relationship—through joint service activities, classroom interaction, and more. In this way, there is an ever closer integration between the school and the community of families it serves.

We have also appointed a Parent Engagement Coordinator, who can be approached by individual parents with feedback, comments, and to volunteer. She can be reached using the contact form and is often outside at both drop off and pickup times at the school.

Edmodo

The school currenly uses Edmodo to communicate with parents and students—for homework and class notices, communication with teachers, and school and department announcements.

For this reason it is important that all parents and students become familiar with this platform, which can be accessed either through a web browser or on the Edmodo or Parent app.

If you need assistance with this tool, assistance can be provided over the phone or on campus, during working hours.

Weather

In times of inclement weather, the school follows the official guidance of the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau (DSEJ) and the Macao Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau (SMG). Both of these agencies will make announcements in line with the DSEJ’s Class Suspension Arrangements poster.

The school makes official weather announcements on Edmodo, so we request that you install the app and enable notifications. The full weather policy is included in the Parent/Student handbook.
