TO THE PARENTS

Though school can do a lot for a child it cannot do everything. The home is the place where he/she gets hid/her first education and training in citizenship. It is the chief place where his/her character is formed and developed. School education indeed promotes the growth of personality and helps to discover and develop the qualities that are in the children. In order to secure all that is best in the education of your child, maximum co-operation between the parents and the school authorities is necessary.

The school desires to have your co-operation and close contact with the teachers of your child in order to develop an atmosphere that is conductive to better and more effective education. This Diary is one of the links which bridges the home and the school. It will be an effective medium for parents-teacher contact. We earnestly request the parents to look into this Diary everyday and see to it that the lesson and home work assigned for the next day are completed. This child should be encouraged to cultivate habitual cleanliness in all his/her work.

Special attention is given to the character formation of the boys/girls and guardians are requested to co-operate with the efforts of the school authorities.
By urging their wards to regularity and punctual attendance.
By giving sufficient time for seeing to their diligence in his home work and lessons.

By occasionally meeting the Principal/Sister-in-charge as well as the subject teachers to discuss greater progress in their children. By insisting on neatness and cleanliness in their text books, copy books, uniform and appearance.
