In service Training - the keystone to quality education
The foundation of any school providing quality education is its teachers.It is our firm belief that a teacher needs to be a constant learner in every sphere of life, only then she/he can be a good teacher. Hence teachers are encouraged to take part in various in-service training programmes conducted in and outside the school. In the years to come there would be a concerted affort to organize many in-services training programmes.
Teacher Discussion Forum:
Weekly discussion for a are held for teachers to encourage teachers improve and enhance communication skills and to brainstorm on all topical events. Additional, every staff meeting held once in a month has a brainstorming session, where the teachers are encountered to share their teaching experiences, discuss about new methodologies in teaching and better techniques of classroom management.
Parent Teacher Interaction
We believe that holistic education of a child is possible only when the school (teachers and administrators)and the community/society(parents, elders, social workers, and others) work in harmony. A strong foundation in education is only possible when the community at large is involved in the overall development of a school.
Towards this end, the parents, grandparents and guardians are constantly encouraged to interact with the teachers and the Principal to help build this foundation by synergizing every ones efforts. Hence we expect parents/extended family members, to actively involve themselves in each and every effort for the welfare of their ward(s). The Principal and teachers keep in touch with the parents almost on a daily basis and a synergy is sought between the school and home environment of every child.
We firmly believe that every child is precious and it is the duty of the school and parents to recognize each child’s potential and develop it to the maximum possible extent. The most important thing is that each child develops best when s/he competes with her/himself.
Hence, a system of evaluation, CCE, i.e. Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation as postulated by CBSE, is being followed by the school. Through this system of evaluation we bring about a holistic and objective evaluation of each and every child on a continuous basis in all the spheres of development. In other words, each child shall continuously improve upon her/his past performance based on the feedbacks she/he gets on an ongoing basis
