Home-School agreement

Home-School Agreement

This is an agreement aimed at strengthening the co-operation between the school and the home.

The school has always placed great importance on the need for both home and school to work together in the interests of students. We make a vital partnership in young people’s education. The home and the school agree to do the following:
