School attendance advice for parents

Categories: School, Milikapiti

Trevor Wilson is a ‘Yellow Shirt’ (School Attendance Officer) for the Remote School Attendance Strategy at Milikapiti. He is also a father.

Getting kids to school is a 24-hour job for Trevor. He is passionate about motivating kids to go to school all day every day, and has lots of great advice for parents:

  • Offer your kids rewards for going to school, such as end of term trips, or Christmas shopping.
  • Sometimes kids play up, but don’t let them play up too much.
  • Talk to your kids about what they want to do with their lives.
  • Help your kids understand that school will open doors for a brighter future.
  • Older kids will need to be prepared to go away for high school or university.
  • Kids need a good 9-10 hours sleep so they are fresh and ready to go in the morning.
  • During the week, the normal routine should be: Go to bed early. Get up early.
  • Let your kids sleep in on the weekend, then on Monday morning it’s back to normal.

And remember, a delicious breakfast is served at Milikapiti School at 8 o’clock every morning thanks to the School Nutrition Program.
