High school par­ent coun­cil

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

The next meet­ing of Blair­gowrie High School’s par­ent coun­cil will be held in the school on Tues­day, Septem­ber 26, at 6pm.

All par­ents and car­ers of learn­ers at­tend­ing the Beeches Road school are wel­come to at­tend the meet­ing and join the group.

Those in­volved say that a strong and active par­ent coun­cil ben­e­fits pupils’ ed­u­ca­tion.

There was a good turnout at the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s AGM last month and the com­mit­tee are keen to build on that.

Mean­while, staff at Blair­gowrie High School held an in­for­ma­tion evening re­cently high­light­ing a new app that the school is us­ing called Show My Home­work.

Around 120 par­ents, car­ers and young peo­ple at­tended ses­sions to find out more about the tool, which al­lows teach­ers to set home­work online and pupils to ac­cess ma­te­rial and help they need to com­plete tasks.

Show My Home­work also in­cludes par­ent ac­cess, mean­ing that par­ents re­ceive alerts when home­work is is­sued, when it is due and if it is not com­pleted.

The aim is to en­cour­age as much parental in­volve­ment and sup­port as pos­si­ble.
