Families, You Matter!
As a family, you make a great impact on your child's health and learning. Did you know that just by being engaged with your child's learning and school staff, you are helping your child avoid risky and harmful behaviors?
Research shows that students who have families involved in their school lives are more likely to have:
- Higher academic achievement
- Better student behavior
- Enhanced social skills
And are less likely to:
- Smoke cigarettes
- Drink alcohol
- Become pregnant
- Be violent
Here's how you can engage with your child and school today:
- Ask your child about their school day and explore The Great Body Shop Family Bulletin with them.
- Ask your school how you can get involved!
