Manchester International School (IB PYP, IB MYP & IB DP)
New parent / student orientation
The first day at school could easily be stamped as stressful, confusing and often overwhelming for any student. Nonetheless, attending an entirely new school is bound to heighten these concerns. Our privileged orientation for students is meant to lay bare an opportunity to gain an understanding of Manchester International School’s thriving and peerless culture, followed by fervent formalities, wherein the students are guided towards identifying the locations of their classrooms, a brief introduction to their teachers that culminates with the short interaction with their batch mates and classmates in the ensuing academic year at school. Apparently, these maneuvers are aimed at alleviating the initial apprehensions and anxieties that the students are being confronted with on their admission in a new school.
It should be reiterated that the aforementioned apprehensions do apply to the parents, as well. It remains as no strange phenomena when parents tend to turn out equally anxious, if not more, on admitting their children to a new school. Manchester International School gladly accommodates the parents for an all-inclusive orientation episode, which is looked upon as a fixated fundamental exercise focused on facilitating their experiences and that of their children at the great school. During the parent orientation programme, we will go over our different forms of communication, ways to get involved, and have a question and answer time. The team will be also holding a welcome gathering that will give parents an opportunity to meet other new families.
Orientation for parents is a day visit to Manchester International School where you will have the opportunity to:
- Meet academic heads, Administrators, faculty, and become acquainted with their roles in the school community and their contributions to student learning and development.
