Questions, Questions, Questions… October 17, 2011

Posted by burnabysouthadmin in General.

Recently,  Ms. Hari recognized there was a need to help keep parents of graduation students informed.  The result of her observation was our first Grad Parent Information night (click here to view the presentation). 

Last Thursday we had nearly 160 parents attend an information session that covered topics such as Provincial Graduation requirements, Scholarships and school sanctioned Grad activities.  The evening went smoothly and the formal presentation was followed by a general Question and Answer period.

Not surprisingly many questions surrounded concerns about the impact that the teachers’ strike may have on graduating students. There were number of questions and a high level of concern stressing to us that now, more than ever, communication from the school is a vital connection between home and students.  Yes, many students are fantastic at bringing home messages and passing on important information.  However, based on the questions we fielded Thursday night, we realized that regardless of how great our students are, we can always find new ways to get the message out.

On Thursday we told parents about our email listserve, the school’s Twitter account as well as Facebook, and if you are reading this, you are already aware of the Admin Blog!  One avenue to help with those questions is that we will take questions that you have and post responses to try and answer your queries.  Chances are, if you have a question in mind, someone else has been wondering the same thing!

So, send us your questions (yes students can ask too!) using either the Twitter account, Facebook or by commenting on one of the posts here and we will do our best to answer them.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Oh this is wonderful!. We don’t need to keep calling at School and ask about it. All parents just leave their questions, their curiosity , their comments without calling the Administration about it. This is lovely and handy for all the parents and students. This is great. I don’t have to keep asking my daughter about it. She doesn’t have to be question by me everyday. I could leave a messages too if I want . Thank you very much.
