We regularly post interesting articles on education issues and ways that parents can assist a child’s learning at home. Here are some examples of some of our most recent posts:
- Use of an iPad app that fosters parent-child interactions around maths markedly increases children's maths achievement across the school year, especially for children with parents who are habitually anxious about maths.
- Updated Australian Curriculum website released.
- Building literacy skills at home.
You can have a read of these articles whilst waiting for your child at swimming lessons, cricket practise or music lessons… They will all be in one convenient location on the APFACTS facebook page.
We are always keen to speak to you about issues that are important to you,
