Senior Leaders’ Think-Piece Webinar 4: Making Parents Citizens of School

Led by Richard Shorter

During the session, we will explore proven ways of enabling the parents of your school to be able to engage and support the culture that you are developing. We will examine practical ways to handle “pushy” parents and non-engaging parents. The last 15 minutes of the session will be focused on one-to-one skills of having difficult conversations with parents.

DATE: Thursday, 7 March 2024

TIME: 10:00-11:00am

We will be using Zoom (online video conferencing software) to host this online event.
