Communication Book

The kids have a "Communication Book" each from their respective school/kindy to facilitate communication between parent/home and teacher/school.

The kindergarten basically uses this Communication Book once a month to inform parents about what is happening at the kindy whether there is an upcoming concert, a special holiday etc.

The Communication Book at the primary school is used daily to record homework as well as what to bring to school the next day eg what extra fees to pay or special materials to bring to school. The children are required to copy all this down in their Communication Book for mum or dad to see. Parents are supposed to sign in the book after checking and they can write in the form of remarks or questions to the teachers in the same book. The latest school notices are also pasted in the book for parents to take note of.

So far I have not written anything down on the book to the teacher, preferring to meet or call up the teacher instead. However, I find the book extremely useful as a record to check on my girl's work and help her with her homework. My girl often forgets to write on it therefore defeating its purpose. I am glad the school is working towards an online version of the Communication Book now.

Do you check your child's Communication Book?


  1. We have to check and sign everyday for our kids. It's a daily progress book. I quite like it, at least I know everything about what they eat, main topic of learning, or anything special thing like a mini party as such at school.

  2. I like it too. I think its very useful. However, the kindy teacher says some parents don't read it at all because they are too busy.

  3. My son has one which I have to sign and acknowledge shall there be information given. My girl has a "homework record book" which she hardly use, all information are given out as handouts which she keeps in a file. Other things are done verbally by my girl. So far I have not contacted/called/written to her class teacher. Only met her teacher once last year during PTM.

  4. i just posted on Philip's progress book. Its everyday n we need to initial it everyday. i do read it but i dont sign it anymore. it states what they learn / do / eat/ vomit / etc

  5. Elaine,
    Met the teacher only once? Thats good. My girl's std 1 teacher says thats better, no news means good news. You don't want to hear from me, she says. Hahaha.

    What they vomit? Thats new to me. lol.

  6. Both my kids (eldest in P1, the other in K1) have communication book and I check everyday without fail.

    Now in P1, I can email the teacher too. Haha...so convenient now :D

  7. Ling,
    It is good that you can email the teacher too. That is really convenient.
