– Theme: Deepening family and community engagement

– Format: Panel

– Primary language: English

Our school event will focus on deepening family and community engagement. Panel discussion would be used as a means for dealing with the subject matter. The panel will consist of two students (male and female), two teachers, a representative from the Parent Teachers Association (PTA), hostess and an expert from the Ghana Education Service or from a local educational foundation. We will discuss the importance of home visits and other forms of family-community engagement. Our discussion will provide the space for both students and parents to share the impact that home visits have made on particular areas such as students’ academic outcomes, parent-child relationships, boosting parental concern and confidence etc. The experts would touch on the appropriate ways of engaging families and community and the expected challenges and how they can be mitigated. We will also touch on the heterogeneity of the classroom and how to make every student (having a disability or not) feel welcomed in our classrooms.
