“Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, and teach them to think straight, if possible.” -- Robert M. Hutchins
The Open House provides the parents and the teacher an opportunity to work together as a team in order to help the child. Each one has an important perspective to share — as a parent; they know their child's personality, habits, strengths, and weaknesses. The teacher, on the other hand, is trained professionally in the best methods of teaching, meeting individual student's needs, how to control classroom behavior, and how to help the child succeed in school. The Open House is an opportunity for the parents to inquire about the child's progress and to find out if the child is having difficulty with anything in particular.
The Open House for Class VI – IX and XI was conducted on Thursday, 28 March 2019. Parents were eager to know about the Annual academic and co-curricular performance of their ward. They had many queries that were efficiently dealt with by the Class Teachers and the Principal. It also bridged the communication gap between the parents and the teachers, which is the very essence of the smooth functioning of this partnership.
The entire school was adorned with Art and Craft decorations put up for the parents to appreciate and enjoy their children’s work. Our young Picassos had also made beautiful sculptures that were on display. The school Principal Mrs. Neelam Chakrabarty interacted personally with the parents and took a firsthand feedback from them. The Open House went on smoothly and ended within the stipulated time. The Transport Department effectively managed the parking.
