Bringing up children and grooming them into perfect and ideal citizens needs a balanced approach and constant guidance from parents and teachers. A school is a second home for children, where they spend long hours learning, and exploring, life. The teachers share the same responsibility as that of parents at home in nurturing the child and seeing them bloom and grow. It is therefore, the teachers who can guide the children to self-improvement through constant counseling and relentless efforts.
Counseling the children, in tandem with the parents, was the agenda for the Primary Section’s Parent-Teacher Meeting. The children, and to some extent the parents were given suggestions on how to invest the holidays in cultivating talent, polishing their strengths and overcoming their weaknesses. During the meeting the points about maintaining health and hygiene, inculcating good habits, and tips on general upkeep of books and uniforms, maintaining good quality of work in the notebooks and following a timetable at home were some of the points, discussed at length with the parents.
The meeting was attended by nearly all the parents, all of whom were eager to discuss their ward’s progress with the concerned teachers to find out solutions to the problems faced in studies while at class or at home.
Overall the meeting turned out to be a great success with a healthy discussion on various aspects of school life and on ways to bring about positive changes in the budding Stafordians so that they excel in every walk of life and make a difference!
