Parent-school Collaboration
The communication channels between the two parties

Cooperation between parents and teachers are essential to children’s growth. The school encourages communication between parents and the school through the following methods.  Parents are encouraged to squeeze time for sharing and discussing the needs of their children in regard to their learning and growth.

  • Parents can look up the assignments in the “Student Handbook” daily and contact the school through the “Parents Notices”.
  • Parents should read the circulars distributed carefully. Most require parents to sign the reply slips, and handle the matters duly.
  • Parents should make regular contacts with the class teachers.
  • The school will hold Parents’ Day by the end of the first semester.

The Parent-Teacher Association


“PAOC Ka Chi Secondary School Parent-Teacher Association” was founded in 1998 with the purposes of enhancing communication and improving friendship between teachers and parents as well as improving students’ academic performances and conducts.
The association organizes various activities every year such as parent talks, parent workshops, filial activities, gatherings and so on. Through the activities, the parents can gain progress with their children at the same time. On the other hand, the activities facilitate the communications and mutual understandings between parents and children. Moreover, by befriending with other parents and knowing more about the school and the teachers, cooperation between the two parties will be enhanced. The active participation of the parents will undoubtedly consolidate their family relations and creating a colorful life for their children.

We need more parent volunteers to help out in tea sessions, venue arrangements, guest reception and to be on duty at the Parents Resources Center.
