Instruction to Parents

Message for Parents

The school can do a lot for your child but it cannot do everything. A home is the place where a child gets his/her first education and training in citizenship. It is the place where his/her character is formed and nurtured. Indeed, education in school promotes the growth of personality and helps the child to discover and develop his/her talents and abilities. But in order to secure the best of education for your child, maximum cooperation between parents and the school is vital. The task of helping our children to become good citizens is best done through partnership between the school and parents.

Parents, please send your child neatly and smartly dressed to school. Pay special attention to personal cleanliness and hygiene. See that they have daily bathing habits, provide them with clean undergarments and send them to school in proper school uniform. Teach them that cleanliness is next to Godliness. As your child advances in age, guide him / her to become a resourceful and useful member of the home. Encourage self-help for studies and house work. He / She should know how to keep his / her room tidy, make his / her own bed, polish his / her shoes, carry his / her own bag etc. The formation of such habits early in life will inculcate in him / her respect and the ideal of dignity of labor and work, which is a fundamental personal virtue that is necessary for a successful career in life.

It is important that children develop the habit of studying and working independently. Encourage them, as far as possible, to do their homework by themselves without depending on tutors or their parents, unless they really need help. Since the medium of instruction in school is English, children can be helped to follow their classes easily by a certain amount of regular English conversation at home.

The school requires your co-operation in order to create an atmosphere that is conducive to effective education. Teachers and parents must establish a regular medium for communication to bridge the difference between home and school. The school handbook is meant to serve this purpose. Teachers will communicate with you through this diary and your prompt attention to those remarks is very essential.

We earnestly request parents to check their child’s handbook on a daily basis and see to it that homework assigned for the next day is completed. Parents can exchange notes with the subject teachers through the pages of the diary about the quality and quantity of work attempted by their children. However, entries should pertain only to the child’s academic performance or conduct. The principal / Headmistress conveys the same in a separate letter. Criticism of a teacher should be avoided in the presence of the child because it undermines his / her respect for teachers and the school. Giving gifts to the staff or any other demonstrations of gratitude or goodwill in their honour, must be avoided. Let our commitment to the future of our children help us to establish a fruitful collaboration between the family and the school.
