Please ask in the school office to put your name down for any courses we offer. There is a donation to the school of £5 for all courses.

A wonderful and committed group of parents have just completed a 6 week Parent Gym course run by Mrs Shear.

 

This was a course of six 2-hour workshops with "missions" to complete in between each. The aim of the course is to make sure parents

  • have happier and more confident children
  • can get their children to open up and talk more
  • feel calm more of the time
  • are able to make family life more fun

 

Week 1: Chat - how to communicate

Week 2: Love - how to balance warmth and discipline

Week 3: Behave - how to be consistent with limit setting

Week 4: Care - how to raise healthy children

Week 5: Discover - how to encourage learning

Week 6: Together - how to build a support network with parents and children

 

The parents feedback for this course was truly positive and all of them would recommend the course to other parents and wished they had found a the Parent Gym course when they first became parents. There will be further Parent Gym courses run across The Orion and Goldbeaters this year.
