“A parent is a teacher at home and a teacher is a parent in school and the child is the centre of our universe.”
We organized an orientation programme for the parents of Grade I on 1st April, 2017 in school. The aim was to familiarize the parents as ‘partners in progress’ with the curriculum, rules and regulations of the school, teaching methodologies and the co-scholastic activities.
The session started with a welcome note by Ms. Rehana Gul, incharge of Grade I and II. In her speech she laid stress on the holistic development of the child which is the main aim and objective of the school. Furthermore, parents were briefed about the guidelines of the CCE pattern of examination and were made aware about the Formative and Summative techniques of evaluation.
The teachers gave an overview of various subjects like English, Math, Environmental Science, Urdu and Hindi and not to forget the co-scholastic activities which provided the parents with an assurance that our curriculum involves hands-on learning activities which not only are a vent to the creative talents and energies of the children but also help in their all-round development. The respective teachers gave detailed information about the learning parameters and stressed upon the innovative teaching and learning methodologies followed in school.
The session was concluded by Ms. Radifa Nazir, academic incharge of Tiny Tots, who readily answered the questions of the parents. While addressing the parents, Ms. Radifa said that a creative curriculum offers children plenty of opportunities to exhibit creative behavior. Such a curriculum will emphasize on independent learning, self–initiated projects and experimentation. Today’s children must be given the chance to develop their creativity to the fullest.
The orientation programme ended on a good note with an aim of growing our children into happy, skillful and creatively well- adjusted citizens.
