Making Achievements Through Effective Family-School Partnership--2019 Shanghai Thomas School Parents’ Meeting
Shanghai Thomas School successfully held the mid-term parents' meeting for the 2019-2020 academic year in the new campus recently.
Blueprint for School Development
At the beginning of the meeting, head of the party in Shanghai Thomas school, delivered a speech entitled "To Cultivate Talents Hand in Hand," to all parents in the auditorium. In the speech, Mrs. Liu Youxia shared with the parents the theory of “Equal stress on integrity and ability, and great courage to shoulder responsibility”, along with students’ developmental goal of “Bilingualism, Dual-capacity, Bicultural”. Meanwhile, she informed the parents of the school’s curriculum and teaching plan, and the various extracurricular activities students attended so far in this semester. She also presented the operation and application data of a number of Chinese high schools that offer international curriculum.
Guidance for College Application
For many parents, college application is one of their biggest concerns. Regarding this, Mr. Li Ming, the head of college admission counseling in Shanghai Thomas school, introduced the school's college application center and counseling team, as well as their regular services, including classes, admission officer and expert lectures, and tailored service.
Communication Between Family and School
After the auditorium session, parents went to designated classrooms to learn about the academics, disciplines and activities from the head teacher. Then the parents talked with various subject teachers to know how their kid were doing in class. They also provided improving suggestions to the school.
Through the parent’s meeting, parents not only learned about the school’s general developmental plan and students’ performance in detail, which ensures student’s future learning path and collage application plan, but also developed a better understanding for the school’s operational theory and strategy. In the meantime, the school listened to the parents’ opinions and strengthened the bond between them, which will promote the school’s further development.
