Over million young start back at school

ANTICIPATION and nerves were replaced with excitement as over a million students in NSW returned to school last Thursday including those from Old Guildford Public School and St Peter Chanel Catholic Primary School in Regents Park.

As well as seeing familiar faces, there were plenty of new friendships to make and lots of promise and potential in the air with research showing that parental interest and involvement in a child’s education, has a direct link to student engagement and achievement; it’s also the ideal time to set limits on social media, television and the internet – and then be prepared to follow them up.
