Talk on the Way to School

“I take the kids to school early and I pick up some of the kids a few days a week. I find it a good time to ask questions about school. This worked out well for Tim with regard to his maths. When we started to talk I asked him, ‘How was maths?’ He told me it was really easy and somehow I knew there was some trouble, because he wasn’t being challenged. Turns out he was in the wrong maths class and I was able to change it at the school.” – Craig Serjeant, former Australian cricketer

  • Time in the car is a great way to stay connected with your child
  • Ask about school and how each subject is going
  • If you have concerns or questions, talk with your child’s teacher

Tips:

Support your children’s education

Take an active interest in what your child is learning at school, and help them in understanding and applying what they learn.
