As part of the Parent Workshop Programme the MRC opened its doors (metaphorically speaking as we don’t actually have doors!) to over 50 parents who attended the Homework Workshop last week.
Parents were shown how to access their childs’ homework area on the VLE and then listened to six presentations from eachof the colleges about subject specific homework setting.
I then spoke briefly about how the MRC supports Homework, our opening hours, and access to resources including the online databases and then took them for a browse around the MRC. Lots of questions about staff help; journals and how many items students could borrow; and many took away the leaflets I had prepared. An exceelent opportuity to talk with Parents.
