PARENTS Parents are the primary carers and educators of the child. At Carrick N.S. we acknowledge this and see the relationship with the parent as a very important one. APPOINTMENTS · Carrick NS welcomes you as parents/guardians to the school to discuss your child’s education or any concerns you may have. Parents/Guardians are asked to make an appointment through the school office, or through a note in the pupil’s home-work journal requesting a suitable time and date in order to maximize convenience and to gain most from such a meeting. It is important in all cases that any problem arising is discussed with the teacher first before bringing it to the attention of the Principal.
