Guiding Our Families Toward A Brighter Future”

The five cornerstones of the program are Education, Empowerment, Encouragement, Inspiration and Support.  The most important factor of the program is parents attending with their children. 

Parental involvement is a strong component in which parents can help support their children’s development at home while the school can be used as an additional resource. Although it is important for all parents to be involved in their children’s education, it is particularly critical to develop a strong link between the home and the school.  Booklets of home activities through which parents can encourage critical thinking and creativity are provided. 

The Saturday Academy for Positive Self-Development is a service that brings together parents and their children and provides them with a controlled forum for the free expression of problems they perceive to exist between them, the school, community and penal system with a view towards mutual understanding and respect.
