Parents Action. 2
Every term we had the opportunity to meet and discuss progress – challenges and opportunities with parents. As stakeholders’ parents are updated on the best practices in helping their underperforming learners at home.
This platform for parents also educates and empower parents to
pay informed attention on their children academic life. Parents Action Team allows parents as beneficiaries to cope and manage their children school performance with ease.
Parents participation is central to all the services to the learners we serve. Their role is beyond just term’s meetings and seminars but they were also funders of the services.

Overall Program Output in 2018. 4
Learning in assorted ways appeal to varied learning styles, helping children to succeed whether they are visual, auditory or kinetic. Field trips, camping and Library based acts gave our learners educational experiences away from their regular class
Our field trips ncluded zoos, nature centers, community agencies such as fire stations and hospitals, government agencies, local businesses and science museums. Not only do our approach provided alternative educational opportunities for our children. Our learners learnt in a more hands-on and interactive manner than they do in school. As the result their grades improved dramatically while expanding their confidence in class.
