Parent Education

MRIS recognises the importance of the interaction of home and school to create the optimal learning environment for students. We are also proud to invite the wider community to learn alongside our parents.

All parents are required to attend our Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP) and buy a training book as part of their commitment to the school. The Teachers also complete the course.

STEP encourages logical consequences rather than reward/punishment. Held at various times through the year, these courses are an invaluable aid, providing parental support, validating parents’ existing skills and preparing a parenting plan for the future.

MRIS Parent Workshops

Additionally, the school conducts workshops, using internal expertise or outside consultants, on relevant issues such as Positive Education, Mindfulness, The Virtues Program, Non Violent Communication, and Q&A sessions on learning issues, bullying and protective behaviours.
