If you get involved and stay involved, you can make a difference, she adds.

 

Family involvement is one of the best investments a family can make, says Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Mereseini Vuniwaqa.

She opened the International Day of Families yesterday at St. Teresa College in Bemana, Nadroga.a

“Whatever your level of involvement, remember: if you get involved and stay involved, you can make a difference. Parents and families who get personally involved in education, their children do better in school and grow up to be more successful in life,” she said.

“Family involvement in education can mean reading a bedtime story to your preschool child, checking homework every night, getting involved in PTA, discussing your child’s progress with teachers, helping your school to set challenging academic standards.

“It is my strong belief that parents and families have the most direct and lasting impact on children’s learning and development of social competence.”

Mrs Vuniwaqa said the International Day of Families provided an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting them.

“We will bank on this opportunity to provide you with services, information and awareness on issues that may be affecting your well-being and that of your families, aptly coinciding with this year’s theme – ‘Families, Education and Well-being’,” she said.
