Dear Parents, Friends and Families,
Recently at JVLR, we held our first Student-Led Conferences (SLCs). This day was an opportunity for each of our students to share their knowledge and understanding about what they have been learning about.
Having students share their own learning has proven to empower them and lead to an increase in a students confidence. It was great to see such supportive families on this day and for parents to take time to spend with their child in school.
Even though you did not see the teachers, a great deal of planning went into making this event happen, and just before the SLC's with parents, students were given the opportunity to practise with different children in the school.
We have some more parent workshops coming up before the end of this academic year. We have focussed on reading and in particular 'Readalouds.' Please see the blurb below from the PYP Coordinator:
Did you know that reading aloud to your children increases your child's chance of school success? It's also a great way to bond with your children. Join us for an inquiry into reading aloud in the early years with tips for how you can create a lifelong love of reading. We will have sessions for both nursery and JKG on two separate days.
Participation is limited to 30 people, so please sign up if you are interested and available.
Nursery: April 16th, 8 a.m.-9 a.m. JVLR
Please complete the form if interested:
JKG: April 17th, 8 a.m.-9 a.m. JVLR

Thank you parents again for your ongoing support,
Head of Primary JVLR
