What we will cover
Our Parent Workshops are designed by our teachers to give parents a glimpse into the classroom and curriculum. Our teachers and specialists provide helpful tips on how best to support your child's home learning and wellbeing. All presentations will be followed by an interactive session. Don't worry - you can still ask questions throughout the session.


Meet our team
All sessions will be hosted by our very own teachers, specialists and Senior Leadership. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about our educational offerings, the way we teach, as well as how we can all support our students' wellbeing. 


Each session is usually around 45 minutes to 1 hour. You can register online and all workshops will be hosted at the Shanghai Racquet Club. The presentation is approximately 25 minutes in length and attendees will then have the opportunity to ask questions or take part in activities set by the presenter.
