Activities for Parents
If you wish to participate more actively in our school there is no better way than joining in with our activities and forming part of our community.
These are educational spaces for parents and family of our students that the school management has provided since 2008 in coordination with Trinidad Mut (the school psychologist). In previous years they have been called Parent’s school, educational coffees or educational talks. Sometimes we invite guests with professional experience to give talks, although generally the talks are organized and given by our school’s psychologist.
How it works
Attend punctually at 14.45 at the school dining hall,entering by the cafeteria. The tables are set up for the parents who have signed up( maximum attendance is 50 in the hall or up to 70 in a class)
We eat for 40 minutes. There are many parents who know each other and meet up to enjoy the meal, this is an excellent opportunity to get to know each other or the parents of your child’s friends.
At the end of the meal the educational part starts: Parents are guided to the hall where the the talk about the chosen theme begins-along with a good coffee for those who want one. In the talk often there are short movies mixed in that help us understand the theme better. Finally there is a round of questions and an opportunity to share their reflections.
The talk lasts approximately an hour (until 5 in the evening) and depending on the questions or level of participation it can go on longer. We also understand some parents need to leave a little earlier and are free to do so discreetly (although children are attended perfectly until 17h and after that hour we also have a playroom service)
The normal bus schedule continues for children , if you wish to change the normal procedure it is very important to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org ,the same day before 14h saying that you will be attending the dinner and that your children will not be going by bus.
At the beginning of each school year the school puts its volunteer parents programme into action (from year 1 to year 4) To this end, at the end of september we hold an infromative meeting. Here we have our first contact and we decide what path we want to follow and in what way parents can collaborate (as well as fill in the application form).
Your collaboration is weekly or forthnightly depending on the needs of the teacher. The programme begins in November and finishes in May. The term to sign up finishes on november first.
It is important to point out that you cannot collaborate in the same class as your children (you can in a parallel class of the same course).
Teaching experience isn’t necessary to become a Volunteer Parent. It involves collaborating with teachers in certain academic activities such as reading, sciences, crafts, school events (Carnival,Toy Fair ,Book Fair) and in school outings.
