He urged the parents to cooperate with the school authorities by ensuring punctuality and discipline; supporting their children to prepare their lessons and encouraging them to take active part in school activities. He further advised the parents about their role in the life of the child coinciding with growth and technology. Today’s Children being digital minded needs special encouragement and attention to stream line their growth productively.
CBSE-International Vice Principal, Mr. Dudley O’Connor in his address briefed the parents on the aims, strengths, unique features, curriculum design and methodology.
