Working Together to Raise Standards
We place great importance on the relationship between home and school and we encourage our parents to be heavily involved within the Straits Community. Our doors are always open, staff are approachable and pupils are genuinely proud to show off their work, whether in the classroom or on displays.
Our form tutors are always available at pick-up times if a short conversation is all that is required to answer a simple question. Should a longer meeting be needed, then an appointment can be made either through the individual teacher concerned or through the School secretary at 604-643 1815 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
The school publishes two progress reports and two full reports each academic year. The full reports are also organised with two associated parents’ evenings with an extra evening at the mid-point of the academic year.
The School produces a termly newsletter which is sent electronically to all parents. Information on trips and co-curricular activities is circulated by the School secretary well in advance of proposed events. Should you require any additional information about trips, events, then please contact the School secretary in the office.
Parents are also invited to join special events such as student-led performances, sports days and social activities, etc. The school also organises a Parents Association, The Straits Parents Support Group, which organises a variety of social functions during the year and plays an important role in the life of the school. In addition edmodo, an online platform (http://sispenang.edmodo.com ) is available for parents to interact with the teachers.
