Parents are always encouraged to become more involved in the education of their children attending high school.

This call will be supported by the National Council on Education (NCE), in collaboration with the I Can Learning Centre, when they host a parenting seminar tomorrow (March 15), from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Management Institute for National Development (MIND).

The event will offer guidance to parents about their involvement in their children’s post Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) years. The session, which is open to the public, is free of cost. The theme of the seminar is: ‘Making the Transition: Strategies for Success in High School’.

Carol Williams, one of three Directors at the I Can Learning Centre, told JIS News that once the GSAT examinations had passed, many parents failed to follow up with the same effort that preceded the tests.

The NCE, she pointed out, had also noticed this trend and was eager to help caregivers in this regard.

A number of presentations will be made, such as, ‘So they have arrived: Making the most of the secondary years’, to be delivered by Principal of Wolmer’s High School for Boys, Dave Myrie; ‘Importance of Parent/Child Communication to High School Success’, to be addressed by Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr. Yvonne Bailey Davidson; and ‘Preparing Students for High School: School Strategies’, to be presented by Education Specialist, Kareen Watson.

The I Can Learning Centre has been described as a supplemental learning facility, offering after-school programmes.
