We believe our relationship with parents begins the moment you first consider Balsam Academy and extends beyond your child's schooling. The Balsam experience is one that is shared both by parents and their children therefore it is our goal to keep parents well-informed to stay involved.
Parent Involvement is defined as the participation of parents in regular, two-way and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including and ensuring the parent play an integral role in assisting the child's learning.
The Partnership for Success initiative requires Balsam parents to complete ten (10) Parent Involvement hours per school year. Parent Involvement hours are documented on the Parent Involvement Card and parents who have fulfilled the required hours will be recognised on the Awards Day. Parents are responsible for having the staff/teacher hosting the event sign their Parent Involvement Card. Parents when you have met the 10 parent involvement hours, submit your Parent Involvement Card to HR.
