In an effort to achieve effective learning, we use periodic Assessments and Examinations for continuous and comprehensive evaluation. We have regular parent teacher meetings to give the feedback and discuss any other issues pertaining to the progress of the pupils. We request parents not to miss such sessions with teachers because on these days the teachers spend time exclusively for interaction with parents without disturbing the routine teaching work. If parents have to miss the parent - teacher meetings and result days (under extreme conditions), they can contact the office ( or e-mail to the Class Teacher or the Principal) and submit a letter requesting to fix an appointment with the Class Teacher on another day ( Monday to Friday from 3.30 pm to 4 pm ) within the next ten days. This is just an effort to make all parents to follow the progress of their children. But, we request parents to avoid such special arrangements and use it only under unavoidable circumstances. We expect all the parents to go through their child’s answer papers and other activities for all Assessments and Examinations and discuss what measures have to be taken for an improvement.
We value the close working relationship with parents and there are many opportunities for parents to meet teachers. We look forward for valuable guidance and whole hearted co-operation from the parents in taking our school to better heights. Orientation programmes and regular Parents-Teachers meetings will give parents enough opportunities to interact with teachers, clarify their doubts, give suggestions and express their grievances (if any). Parents can help us by taking a regular close interest in their child’s work, helping if necessary and encouraging good study habits. We expect parents’ support in maintaining a disciplined environment in the school.
We aim to foster self- discipline, encouraging students to take responsibility for their own actions, through a disciplinary system, which is firm yet, fair. We expect good behaviour both within the school and on the journey to and from school. We expect students to show tolerance, consideration and respect for others. We expect them to be punctual, to work hard and allow others to do likewise. The school is divided into four houses and each house has junior and senior prefects who constantly monitor the attitude, behaviour and mannerisms.
