COMMUNICATING WITH NIHS

At Norwood International High School we value our partnerships with families and recognise that these positive connections support students to flourish in their learning. Research clearly demonstrates that when schools and families work collaboratively to support young people, their level of success is enhanced as is their well-being.

We maintain that effective communication and sharing of information is essential for successful partnerships and have a number of ways to facilitate this process.
