Home School Community Liaison
HSCL refers to a “Home School Community Liaison" Coordinator.
The aim of the “Home School Community Liaison Coordinator” is to develop partnership and co-operation between parents, teachers and relevant community agencies. Everybody works together with the best interests of the children in mind. Parents are encouraged to participate more fully in their children’s education and to become more involved in the life of the school. We encourage parents to become aware of their own ability in enhancing their children’s educational progress.
