Our next Coffee and Learning session will take place next Tuesday, April 2nd from 8:30-9:30am in the Admin Conference Room. The topic of the session will be 'Helicopter Parenting.'


As we come back from our well deserved spring break the Teranga centre is sharing the an article written by Nick Alchin, Principal at the United World College South East Asia, in Singapore. His blogspot is regularly updated and well worth a read. See link below.

The article we are sharing in particular, gives some excellent practical device about how to truly listen to our teenage children. The ideas presented suggest that taking an active interest can be intentional and allow our children to develop confidence, trust and independence.
