Parent Power Workshop

This is an annual event for parents of Year 11 students and took place on Thursday 28 September 2017, 5.15 - 6.30pm.

PARENT FEEDBACK FROM THE ABOVE EVENT:

100% of parents/carers who attended said they would recommend this session to others and found it useful.

'Great to be able to discuss the pressures of Year 11 with other parents and see that many are in the same boat as us! Was useful to learn about the key tips on revision techniques that our children have been taught how to use.'

'It was useful as it has helped me to focus the help I will give my child and I'm now fully aware of what they need to do.'

'It's helpful to have the communication and to know you're not missing anything.'

'I found all of it useful! As a parent I've felt quite overwhelmed by it all.'
