It makes a huge difference to your child if you are able to be involved in their schooling in some way.
For some, this means helping in classrooms, with fundraising, at working bees, in the canteen, lending expertise to various projects, on Parents Club or School Council. There are many, many avenues to lend a helping hand.
For others, involvement in these ways simply isn’t possible, for a range of reasons. For your child, your involvement in supporting their learning, making time to chat about the day, keeping in touch with teachers and ensuring that you are up to date with your child’s progress at school is equally valuable.
