Parents-Teachers Interaction Programme
A tri-polar relationship between the school, parents and students is essential for the successful execution of the objectives of school and teaching learning. Parents-teachers interaction is conducted in the school at least once or twice a year in order to share information about the students’ activities, their personal growth and academic progress so that the concerned parents can take necessary steps for correction and for further improvement of their children. In the special cases, parents can meet the individual subject teacher or class teacher at the time allocated by the school to discuss about their wards’ progress in studies.
Any remarkable suggestions from the valued guardians are always appreciated and will be taken as feedback for further enrichment of the quality of education.
