Workshops & Coffees
As a learning community not only do we at St. Francis ensure that teachers take part in professional development but we also try to promote as many workshops for parents as possible. These workshops aim to give parents necessary information about how their children learn but they also aim to bring parents into the world of learning at St. Francis. Early Years and Primary promote workshops about child learning. Some Parent workshop examples are: The PYP, Child development and Emergent reading and writing. The Helping Parents also promote some parent workshops on topics they deem interesting and relevant. Parents wishing to suggest a parent workshop should contact their class representative.
Additionally we also offer a monthly coffee to parents. At this event parents and staff get to speak, exchange ideas, build relationships all over a very pleasant coffee atmosphere at the school´s cafeteria. Staff always selects a topic of discussion for this coffee, and it’s another great opportunity to acquire and exchange knowledge, and be an active participant in the St. Francis community.
