Hope everyone had a good week back at school for those that already went back.
I was fortunate enough to spend the day yesterday on a junk – one of my favourite past times in Hong Kong. Whilst sitting in the middle of the South China Sea, a few of us mums were talking about the schools, the processes and the difficult task of making a choice. So today I thought I would share with you some Open Days that are coming up this month.
Open days are a great way to get to know the international schools for you and your child. It’s more than the opportunity of looking at the facilities; you get a feel for the school environment, get to speak to the teachers and pupils which really helps to decide whether that school is ‘the one’.
Open day tips:
- It’s a good idea to do a bit of preparation beforehand, what sort of information would you like to know? A great question I always try and ask teachers is “Why did you choose to teach here?”
- Encourage your child to get involved in any activities that are taking place, and involve them in any questions you’ll be putting to teachers and even pupils. This might help alleviate any concerns they may have.
- Take note of the décor and displays, it will help you get a feel for the atmosphere and what it is like to work and attend there.
- Try and do a bit of extra research, speak to other parents whose children already attend.
If you would like a list of questions to ask then please get in touch.
