NIA Smash Parent-Teacher Association (PTA)
We have encouraged all parents to become involved in their child’s learning. Educational research shows that children, whose parents are involved in any form or manner at their school, are more motivated and committed to their studies. It is also important to note that older children are just as reliant on their parents’ support as younger children.We are continuing with the Parent’s as Partners Programme to further develop a close partnership with parents, draw ideas, receive feedback and attract more parents to join each NIA respective community. Each section of the school will approach the parents in that section in an effort to meet their specific needs and promote involvement.We will have our regular contact in Parent Information Evenings and Parent Teacher nights, which this year are through Zoom due to COVID restrictions. These restrictions have limited our ability to provide our focus sessions that were held in previous years. We look forward to resuming these when restrictions ease.
