“More recent research…is telling us that deeper forms of parent engagement with schooling…enhance student achievement and outcomes, close achievement gaps and build social capital and social inclusion.”
The importance of parental and community involvement in schools has been well documented. It impacts not only upon our children’s academic learning, but also their social and emotional development. At Chrysalis, parents are involved in many aspects of school life. From reading assistance in the classrooms, attendance on excursions and camps, sewing bees, working bees, serving/baking for festivals, to serving on the Board, parent volunteers are a key support to the school, both in day to day and overall operations.
