‘Lesson time’ for parents at GOTS

‘Lesson time’ for parents at GOTS

It’s that time of the year when parents get the opportunity “to study” at Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) in Shah Alam.

The two-day year-end camp will see fun-filled activities on Monday for coaches and scholars before parents join in the next day.

It promises to be a great bonding session as parents are encouraged to “act like children” and explore what it is like to study “the GOTS way”.

“We had great feedback from the parents last year as they got to experience what it is like to be ‘schooled in GOTS’,” said the international school’s co-founder Veronica Shepherdson.

“We informed the parents in advance to clear their calendar and to make time for the camp as we want them to be part of this journey.

“We need at least one of them to be at the camp although it would be better to have both parents – just like last year where most of them came together.”

Among the activities to look forward to are choreographed dance moves, heart-to-heart sessions, and visual, auditory and kinaesthetic (VAK) learning methods.

VAK learning is important as children are likely to learn differently from their parents. Kinaesthetic learners are those who need to do an activity to understand a concept or lesson while visual learners are those who need to see pictures, graphs and videos. Auditory learners, meanwhile, are those who absorb by hearing information.

Lessons at GOTS incorporate all three learning styles so that no child is left behind.

During the camp, parents will also be shown examples of how best to help their children if their learning styles are different.

Although it’s a one-day session for parents, the intense nature of the camp would greatly benefit them and their children.
