Parent Task #1

This new blogging task isn’t for the students, it’s for the parents. This is a great way for parents to have a look at and get involved with their child’s online life. Although, having introduced it as a “parent task” I’d be more than happy for any close, concerned relative of the students to get involved with our blogs. Parents (grandparents, aunts, uncles…), you can either write a post or comment on your child’s blog (I’m sure they won’t mind if you ask them nicely) or leave a comment on this one. The post could be about yourselves, your work, about your own school life, an event from your past, a hobby, pastime or skill, in fact anything you like. It could even be to do with a news story, something which may spark some thoughts for the students. A comment on this blog would also be welcome. Check out our Blogging Task #2 and read Mr Millar’s amazing musings, they may inspire you to recall your own meaningful lyrics. Make sure you first ask your child about our strict safety and commenting rules. Good luck and have fun!

  1. Hi there LA 19 and Mr Hope,

    I have been following this blog as well as reading a few of the students’ blogs ever since Aimee came home with her very first blogging task, and such enthusiasm it was hard not to get sucked in! I must say I am so impressed! I know most of the students only started blogging a short time ago, but by the look of their blogs you would never say it! The students have so much to say and their blogs are well-written and interesting. Those students who have been blogging for a while longer are still going strong and continually finding new things to write about, which is not always an easy task. I wish I had been given this kind of opportunity when I was at school.

    I’ll keep popping in to see what you’ve all been up to, so….

    Keep Writing!

  2. Chantelle, thank you so much for taking the time to take part in out new blogging task and for writing such a generous and thoughtful comment. It’s great to know that parents are following the things we do in class and supporting the students. So far the enthusiasm seem to be holding and we’re beginning to get some visits from other nations (largely thanks to Aimee!). Hopefully, the added pressure of being read by a wide audience will help the students develop their writing and editing skills whilst having fun at the same time.

    Once again, thanks for commenting and please keep popping in to view our ongoing exploits.
