Advice for parents
The most important way that parents can assist their students during this time is to help set the right environment for study. This can be done by:
1. Ensure your child has a quiet place to complete their work and engage in online learning. A pair of earphones can help block out background noises.
2. Be sure you check with your child that they know their schedule.
3. Discuss the work with your child.
4. If it is clear that your child is having difficulty completing the work due to technological, language or any reason, please contact the teacher. There are EAL and Learning Support specialists available to assist. Students and parents can also contact their homeroom teachers or relevant coordinators.
