Begawan Education believes that the connection between the education team and parents of students influences the learning of the students. Good communication, built by both sides, can help the children to feel they have a safe learning space. That sense of security can foster self-confidence, curiosity, and a feeling of appreciation for the benefits of learning.
We made it happen on August 10th, 2022 after the final project entitled ‘Tooth Hero’ at the Learning Centre. Fourteen parents of both new and old students attended the meeting. We began by giving the parents their children’s individual evaluations, entitled Surat Cahaya Bersinar (Shining Light Letter). This evaluation and feedback by the education officer can assist parents to know how their children are learning, and give a better understanding of the learning process.
In the next session, we discussed all the activities and programs from previous lessons so that parents are aware of their children’s activities, the upcoming themes, the schedule, and the programs that we want to develop and grow. Following our presentation, we gave the parents a questionnaire to get their comments, followed by a question-and-answer session.
We know that it’s easier to have conversations about tough topics when relationships are strong. The facilitator can tell of student challenges, and parents will have more trust in the education team because of these positive connections. Students are less worried about the learning challenges because they have faith that they can overcome obstacles with their facilitator and their parents by their side. Because trust has been established, the team is able to work more effectively. (Assabti Nur Hudan)
