Previous Online Workshop insights

Whether it's the end of the year, the start of the year or a mid year slog, parents are ever present with their queries, complaints and even occasionally, their praise! Finding time or having the desire to engage parents is a challenge.


But we know that there are rewards and that challenge should be met­—rigorous research has shown that positive partnership with families measurably improves student achievement and well-being. So let’s come together and collaborate for one day to focus on effectively engaging parents.  


Join other school leaders to pool knowledge, access practical tools and determine achievable next steps before starting the 2020 year in a one day workshop at Rangitoto College facilitated by Philip Bradley (see profile).
