IB First Parents-Teachers Meeting

The first parents-teachers meeting was held on 13th Nov between 2.30 – 4.30pm. The session kicked off with the Principal giving an update of the academic and co curricular activities since the beginning of the term. Parents received a copy of the mid-semester progress report and gave positive feedback on the programme. One parent noted how her child had shown a dramatic change in attitude since joining the programme, and gave credit to all the staff for their ongoing efforts in nurturing and coaching the students. The ensuing meetings between parents and individual subject tutors were largely positive, as parents were appreciative of the additional reading and other resources recommended, and most were willing to partner with teachers to guide and encourage their children in their self- study when they return home for the weekend.  They acknowledged that in the transition from middle to high school, a leap in the level of difficulty is inevitable and students must take it upon themselves to work hard and make the grade. The staff reassured parents of their commitment to helping those with special learning needs and remedial sessions are already in place for candidates who are weaker in specific subjects.

The next Parent-teachers session is scheduled for the end of the first semester in January.

第一次家长会于1113日下午2点半至4点半举行。首先,IB校长向家长们就本学段的学术和课外活动的进展做了回顾和汇报。家长们收到了一份期中成绩报告,并对课程给出了积极反馈。一位家长指出到从开学以来,她的孩子如何在学习态度上表现出戏剧性的变化,并积极肯定了所有教师们在培育和指导学生上所付出的持续努力。接下来是家长和任课老师见面的环节,反响也是相当积极,家长们感谢老师们所推荐的课外读物和其他学习资源,在学生周末在家时,大部分家长表示愿意积极配合老师们去指导和鼓励孩子自学。他们承认从中学过渡到到高中,学习难度的增加是必然的,学生们必须自主努力学习去达到课程要求。老师们向家长们承诺他们将努力帮助有特殊学习需求的学生,相关补救措施也已为在某些科目薄弱的学生而制定。

下一次的家长会将定于明年1月的第一学期末进行。
