What is the role of a PICT Model School parent?

We believe "teachers should take care of teaching and parents should do parenting". Only then a child feels secure and grows up with confidence. As much as we take care of training the child as a teacher, we would like our parents to take care of the following:

  • • Abiding by the policies and regulations, stated in the School Diary, which governs the day to day functioning of the school.
  • • Regular monitoring of the child’s performance. Encouraging self – study provides opportunity for reflections and self-evaluation, fundamental components to become independent learners.
  • • Checking and signing the notes in the school diary on a daily basis.
  • • Monitoring the internal assessment papers and consulting the concerned educators periodically.
  • • Encouraging and supporting the child to participate in all events and competitions.
  • • Updating through the Weekly Transaction Report sent by mail every Friday.
  • • Attending all PTMs and Parent Orientation Programme conducted at regular intervals.
  • • Parents are strongly advised to meet the Educators in case of behavioural issues or academic concerns, without delay.
