Yenagoa—Parents and teachers in public primary schools across Yenagoa, Sagbama, Ogbia, and Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Areas in Bayelsa State have commended Governor Douye Diri for introducing the BayelsaPRIME reform in schools as they attend a “Parent Teacher Conference.”
BayelsaPRIME was launched to improve learning outcomes among children in Bayelsa State Primary Schools, promote greater engagement between stakeholders in the school system.
The initiative also seeks to empower teachers with skills to deliver better learning experiences for children and drive greater use of data and evidence for policy-making.
Meanwhile, the Parent Teacher Conference is an integral part of the BayelsaPRIME reform programme designed for parents/guardians to engage with teachers and participate in school activities to engender better learning outcomes for their children.
The conference also fosters positive relationships between parents, teachers, pupils, and school leaders, thus enhancing the overall learning experiences of the children in the public school system.
Speaking during the Conference, Amaran Werinipre, a teacher with Reverend Proctor Memorial School II, noted that “the Conference helps both the teachers and pupils because when the parents come, we tell them the lapses of their children and advise them on how to assist them at home.”
Similarly, Mr. Cook Micah, a parent of a pupil of St Luke’s Primary School, Agudama Epie who echoed the importance of the conference noted that because of the Conference, he is more involved in his children’s academic growth and progress.
Mangrovepen.ng gathered that the reform will be extended to Nembe, Southern Ijaw, Ekeremor, and Brass local government areas in the next academic session.
