At NAISAK, we are constantly looking for ways to improve the two-way communication we have with our parents and families. Parents and families can be viewed as holding many different roles within a child’s educational career. Here at NAISAK, we believe parents are very much ‘Partners’ and provide that vital home-school link that students need to be successful throughout their school life. Being partners with the school means we value mutuality with our parents and families, which begins with listening to each other and fostering a good network of communication. Communication is one of the core elements of effective participation in school of parents and families. It must be a two-way process that allows parents to support their children properly but also ensure parents and families are supported and informed by the school.
With this in mind we are very excited to announce that we will be launching our very own NAISAK app for smartphones and tablets, which has been designed to improve communication between the school, and parents and families. One of the app’s most important features will be the ability for the school to send messages in Arabic and English to all parents who have downloaded it. We hope this will mean that regardless if telephone numbers or email addresses have changed, the school will be able to communicate effectively with the school community. The app will also bring together the most important documents needed by parents throughout the school year, including The Parent Handbook and a number of the school’s policies. Additionally, parents will also be able to email student absences to the school through the app, which we hope will cut down the amount of time and the number of telephone calls needed to register a student as absent.
The app, which is completely free, will be available to download soon on Android and Apple phones by searching ‘nais al khor’. We encourage all our parents and families to download the school app once available and keep up to date with everything that is happening at NAISAK. You will recieve an email upon the launch of the NAISAK App.
