As our education is a distance education model, we need home tutors to be part of the education of their children. Sometimes that person is a parent or relative. At other times it can be a hired person such as a governess. The teacher, home tutor and students need work as a team. An individual learning program is developed around student needs and it is important we have a good dynamic occurring in continually adjusting and modifying it. Frequent, purposeful and respectful communication is required between the school and families.
Parents attend school as part of the teaching and learning process, to participate in school events and camps;
