The ‘Partnerships with Parents’ Program is a Campbell Primary School initiative that commenced in 2002, with the intent of forming genuine and ongoing partnerships with our parent community.
The initiative is based upon the strong belief that parents are the first teachers in their children’s lives and values the role parents play in their development. ‘Partnerships with Parents’ aims to empower parents by providing an opportunity to learn about aspects of child development and ways to support their child’s learning. It also aims to promote a smooth and successful transition into their schooling years. A large focus is to inform parents of programs and initiatives offered through Campbell Primary School’s Teaching and Learning Program.
A broad range of presentations and workshops are offered across the school calendar. Some include:
· Transition into Kindergarten/Pre primary
· Supporting your child with Reading
· Building resiliency through ‘The Highway Heroes’ Program
· Maths Online workshop
· The Differentiated Curriculum
· The Arts Program at Campbell Primary School
· Transition to Middle Primary School
· Gifted and Talented Program
· Using technology in the classroom.
‘Partnerships with Parents’ workshops are advertised via Campbell Primary School’s newsletter as well as Term Planners. Workshops are presented by expert teaching staff from Campbell Primary School as well as professional organisations. Presentations run at the commencement and end of the school day on different week days. Some workshops include opportunities for parents to visit their child’s classroom to view a specific program in action. Other presentations are offered after school hours allowing working parents to attend.
The ‘Partnerships with Parents’ program is a highly successful program which continues to evolve to meet the needs of our diverse Campbell Community.
