PARENT WORKSHOPS

Mandarin Matrix - how you can support your child at home

Tuesday 23 February 8.30 - 9.00am - for all parents (Cafeteria)

This will be led by Mandarin Matrix staff. Mandarin Matrix is our online platform for reading, character recognition and practising, reading comprehension and assessments. Mandarin Matrix staff will show you how you can help your child at home using this system and give you some tips on how you can support their Mandarin learning. 

 

What is the Sports Leadership Award programme? Wednesday 24 February 5.00 - 5.20pm (on Secondary Parent Consultation Evening but other parents welcome! Class 3A 1/F) 

This will be led by PE Teacher, Miss Lauren Kenny who will tell you more about this exciting opportunity for our Secondary students to take part in the UK Sports Leadership Award programme and what are the benefits for your child. Also, if you are thinking further along the track, did you know the programme (Level 3) contributes to UK University points via UCAS? Miss Kenny will give you more details in her workshop. 

 

What is the Sports Leaderships Award programme? 

Thursday 25 February 8.30 - 9.00am (Years 6 - 8 parents / Cafeteria)

Same as above.

 

E-safety at Home

Tuesday 1 March 8.30 – 9.00am (Years 5 – 8 parents)

This will be led by our Head of Pastoral Care, Mr. David Boyd. There’s a trend with young children having more and more access to social media, and so we all need to ensure that we can create a safe online environment for our children.  We would like to encourage as many parents (specifically for Years 5 to 8, but Year 4 parents are welcome too!) to come along to this useful workshop. 

 

For all parent workshops, please register with Ricky.Auyeung@nais.hk to save your place.
