International School Dhaka recently arranged online events for its students and their parents under the title ‘Back to School: Meet Our Teachers.’
The events were organised by both the ISD primary and secondary schools.
The online events provided the parents with opportunities to meet and learn about their children’s teachers, receive an overview of each class, and ask questions.
The online events allowed the guardians to attend the meeting from the comfort of their homes without worrying about either traffic or getting exposed to COVID-19 virus.
On this occasion, Chris Boyle, secondary principal, International School Dhaka, said, ‘Parents are incredibly important partners with teachers in the education of their child and research shows that parents who are highly involved in their child’s education have numerous positive outcomes including increased motivation and improved academic performance. These events brought parents, students, and teachers together to build community, develop a common understanding of ISD’s rigorous curriculum and skill development, and allow parents to ask questions. While visiting online Back to School sessions I saw many smiling faces and heard from countless appreciative parents who shared how much their sons and daughters were enjoying their lessons, despite the challenges of online learning.’
