I always felt extremely welcomed, by admin and teachers, who made themselves available, by appointment, to chat with me whenever I had a concern or wanted to share the information I felt important to support my son's life at school. Parent/teacher meetings were well planned and always provided sufficient time to understand how my son was doing. I never felt rushed. I had several opportunities to meet other parents at events held at the school. For high school I think the expectation of parental involvement was at the level it should be- giving space for the children to spread their wings without parents looking over their shoulders but always having them connected. If there were to be a parent council I would have participated but felt comfortable knowing the administration would have called upon parents if needed.

Parents are encouraged to take part in a number of events within the school including orientation events, parent-teacher interviews, fundraisers such as food drives and bake sales, speaker series, and online offerings. I have been very impressed with the number of events hosted by the school and invitations to provide feedback to continually improve. Blyth takes advantage of electronic platforms to expose parents and students to interesting speakers. This has been particularly important during the Covid-19 period. The size of the school does limit opportunities for parents to take part in some types of activities e.g. there is no formal Parent Council, although I'm not sure it is unnecessary given how accessible the staff is to the parent community.
