The education of a child is a partnership between home and school. It is through this active partnership where everyone plays their part that the greatest results for children are achieved. Our School aims to work closely with our parents in establishing high expectations for our students academically, behaviourally and on the sporting field. The active involvement of parents in our school is an important way for parents to keep in touch with the diverse range of events and opportunities that occur at our school.
As a school we acknowledge that trust is an essential part of the relationship between parents, teachers and the school in general. Parents place a lot of trust in a school to ensure the safety, wellbeing and education of their children. It can be difficult for parents as their children’s first teacher to allow someone else to be heavily involved in the learning and shaping of their children. This trust is not taken lightly by our school staff, and as a school we are committed to ensuring the best educational outcomes for all children. To be able to do this, parents need to enable this trust and allow teachers to do what they have been trained for. At Agnes Water State School, we have staff with a combined experience equivalent to 250 years of working in schools in a multitude of settings. The combined experience of school staff as professional educators and parents as first teachers can achieve an outstanding learning journey for children, if completed in partnership.
Schools are a reflection of the community and it is through the participation of our community in our school, that we shape it together to be the school that really engages students to learn and grow.
