Parents as Partners

Millennium Group of Schools acknowledges and recognizes the value that parents can add to the schooling experience of their children when engaged in partnership. At the outset we've tried to develop a parent partnership program that gives interested parents an opportunity to contribute to their child's schooling experience.

Millennium Parents have plenty of opportunities to be involved with children during school hours. They are encouraged to participate in the school activities on a number of occasions and partner the school in developing their child holistically.

1. Those with exceptional talent in an Art or Sport are encouraged to participate as guest instructors to aid in the development of the co-curricular skills of our students.
2. Parents and grandparents are invited to participate in certain classroom activities, assemblies or projects that their children are involved in, in addition to the usual functions and performances.
3. 'Career Days' when parents from different walks of life talk about their professional experiences to help students prepare for their own future. This is another way in which parents can contribute at Millennium Group of Schools.

There is regular school parent interaction in a number of ways:‘Back to School’ programme encourages the Parent to sit in their child’s classroom to observe the teaching learning process and see how their child is interacting and learning. These are done on specific days and parents are informed through the Almanac.

• We hold a Parent Orientation at the start of every academic year.
• There are regular parent-teacher meetings and Open Days at the end of each term, when parents are invited to view their child's work and discuss his/her progress.
• There are walk-in times at the Primary level and parents are encouraged to make appointments with subject teachers at the senior level.
• Coffee Mornings / Evenings / Special Assemblies, which parents are welcome to attend and participate in are held periodically through the year.
• There is a regular communication through monthly newsletters, detailed circulars, children's school diaries, and the website.
• Finally, the Principal, Academic Coordinators, teachers, and staff are always available, by appointment, to discuss the progress or welfare of the children.
