We are very proud of the people who come along to parent learning opportunities that happen in our school. There have been some great success stories and some of the parents have shared what it has meant for them.
"I have been a parent at Arnhem Wharf Primary School for a few years and I took part in one of the parents course in 2013. I really enjoyed it and it was a great opportunity for me to meet new people, learn new skills and be confident to apply for jobs.
I have now been working at Arnhem wharf Primary School as a Teaching Assistant for almost 5 years and I really love my job. I am surrounded with lovely ,wonderful children every day and I work with an amazing team in the Early Years.
I would definitely recommend the parents course to any parent who wants to get back to work or learn something new .
They won't regret it."
"I've been living in UK for 3 years and when I came here it's hard to get used to live foreign country I had no friends and no job. Then this year I have spoken with Nahar and she advised me to join "coffee morning" in Arnhem Wharf Primary School. I have met new friends and taken some online course with lovely Cathy. They recommended me to go to Island Advice Centre and now I am working as volunteer in Island House Community Centre. I really enjoy being there."
"Arnhem Wharf organises and provides wonderful courses for parents. Over the years, I've attended and completed many courses with enthusiasm and a great success. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to take part in it. It has helped me boost my confidence back and increased my knowledge and understanding in areas of interest. It was also a great opportunity to meet other parents and get to know them, share ideas and experience. I now feel proud of myself as I have just started working here at Arnhem Wharf.
I would strongly recommend parents to look out for courses and take part in any which interest you. Nahar is a great person to talk to if you have any questions or queries."
"I attended the parent Gym Course for 3 months at Arnhem Wharf Primary School. The course has helped me manage my children’s behaviour. It has taught me the importance of having a good time table at home for sleeping, eating and play. I have learnt a lot of things which I have put into practice.
This course was very useful for all the parents who attended.
By attending courses at Arnhem Wharf School, it has given me the courage to apply for positions within the school.
Currently I am working at St Lukes as a volunteer.
I hope we have more courses in the school like this.
Thank you to Nahar and Nadim."
