Home School Partnership

What a wonderful sight it was tonight to see so many St Pius X Catholic School parents coming along to support their children with their netbooks.
Tonight was a chance for the parents to get a better understanding of the Manaiakalani Project as well as share their opinions on the processes for sending the netbooks home.
The parents had some very interesting questions and also put forward some great ideas to the questions that were posed on chart paper around the room.
Once this had been done the students then shared their learning with their parents by showing them what they have been up to on their netbooks over the past two terms.  It was wonderful to see all the smiling faces and enthusiastic students being so proud of what they are doing in school.
An amazing night of learning and sharing.

Congratulations to all of you at St Pius. Well done for hosting this evening and what a fabulous bunch of parents you have, coming out on a Wintry night to engage with this. I look forward to finding out more about the idea the parents shared.
