Parent Information

Communication with parents/guardians

Blackburn ELS acknowledges that newly arrived parents/guardians are unfamiliar with the Australian education system and provides a series of comprehensive and high quality information sessions.

 

These sessions cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • teaching and learning in the language school,
  • supporting students’ health and wellbeing and
  • the Victorian Schooling System

 

Communication with parents/guardians is facilitated through:

  • translated information and
  • the use of interpreters.

 

The school invites parents/guardians into classrooms, through formalised sessions, to:

  • observe their children learning and
  • gain an understanding of the role of parents/guardians in their child’s learning.
