Seri Mulia Sarjana International School has once again welcomed the new school year by holding Parents’ Orientation sessions on 18th February 2017. These orientation sessions provided the new and current parents and guardians with general information about the school, its curriculum and other support services.

It aimed to build stronger ties between parents, teachers and staff and to gain better insight of the school as well as to know what to expect this year and to equip themselves for it.

During the orientation, important matters were discussed such as the school’s Vision and Mission, Cambridge Curriculum and Framework, Learning Support, Elective Subjects, Assessment and Reporting, CIS and CIE Introduction, Co – Curricular Activities, School Activities, Guidance Programme, Social Media, School App, Security and Safety. The members of Board of Governors and the school’s Organisation Chart were also presented.

Dr Stephen Whitehead, the school’s Educational Management and Professional Development Consultant, delivered an engaging talk during the first session about “The 21st Century Teaching and Learning.”

The parents were impressed to see the improvements in the school’s facilities as they were toured around the school and were duly assured of a warm and nurturing learning environment for their children.

The event concluded with an information session conducted by some selected teachers in the classrooms as they discussed and answered parents’ queries on Elective Subjects, Assessment/Reporting, Class Schedule, Portfolio, E-Library Card and Student Handbook.

The day turned out to be a success as happy and satisfied parents reinstated their trust to the school. They expressed their gratitude for the informative and interactive experience as well as the opportunity to ask questions and to connect with other parents. They were again motivated to become stronger partners of the school in providing a quality education to all its global students.
