Student Led Parents Meetings

What we do?

We help schools re-design and transform their open houses through our process sheets ( Chapter Indicator, SLPM Paper Indicator, Meeting trainer), training and coaching. School usually take in all the learning in a 3-hour workshop and they are ready to conduct their very own SLPM. We coach schools as part of the SLPM to design better assessments, form peer learning practises, create professional learning communities and strengthen interpersonal communication in children.  


Why we do it?

Open houses are days when parents come into school to see their children's marked exam papers. This process typically happens 4 times a year. Most open houses at school are days where most children are left to fend for themselves as teachers, parents and support after-school tutors often pass the blame as to why students are underperforming. This leads to the victimization of students and is a disempowering experience. As a school leader, I wanted to change the way a child experienced and felt during the open house. I wanted it to be a day of victory, power and responsibility for them. Thus the SLPM process was born. Today we see the open days at our school as one of the most sought-after days by children. It's a day they reaffirm their power and take on self-direction in learning.
