PARENTS and teachers from the Cleve Area School community will take part in a new learning program, the i-Ripple project, starting this week.
The first of the project’s workshops begin on Saturday, May 20 and will run for a week, hosted by PeopleHQ chief executive officer and founder, Shelley Wild.
Cleve Area School principal Ray Marino said the school was one of just two taking part in the pilot project which was aimed at building on the communication and trust between teachers and parents.
Mr Marino said the workshops would provide parents and teachers with strategies and resources to cope effectively with the complex and competing demands of their roles and foster a ‘new’ style of collaboration between parents and the school to improve student learning within the school.
“I believe that by being involved we will learn skills that will help us as individuals and as a team,” Mr Marino said.
