Libreville - School Report Question and Answers
How is the overall communication between teachers and parents, and the administration and parents? How is communication facilitated?
This is a point of difficulty for American parents. Parents are not allowed to contact teachers directly. Instead, they must contact the front office (reception) and ask them to pass along the message. While this was frustrating at first, reception has been quick to pass along messages to the appropriate parties, and the teachers in Early Years and Primary have contacted me within a day to answer the questions. Students can also email their teachers themselves, so this hasn't really been the problem I anticipated. The school struggles with communicating information in a timely fashion, however. It was typical to receive emails about events or time sensitive tasks the day before. There is a parents' WhatsApp group in which parents communicate with each other that has been helpful. - Jan 2022
