Parents desirous of meeting the class teacher and subject teachers are requested to meet them in school between 9.00 a.m. and 12 noon during the Parent-Staff Contact Session held after FA1, FA2, SA1, FA3 & FA4.

The prescribed textbooks and notebooks for classes LKG to X should be purchased from the school. Notebooks bearing the school emblem and name should only be used.

All the textbooks and notebooks prescribed for the various classes will be sold only as a complete set (books and notebooks) and not as notebooks or textbooks alone. In case extra books or note book wrappers are required, the same can be purchased from the school office. All payments should be in cash.

❖ Only royal blue or blue-black ink is permissible (Black ink is not permitted).

Students should possess the prescribed TEXT BOOKS and NOTEBOOKS of their own. Lending / borrowing will not be allowed.

The textbooks and notebooks should be maintained properly and the same should be brought to class for the concerned periods. Students without the same will not be permitted to attend the classes. The class work and homework should be completed then and there. The same should be got corrected by the teachers concerned.

Policy on Home Work

 

At all class levels, homework for students will be an integral part of the curriculum and planned by the teacher to closely correlate with the classroom curriculum development. Parents should feel that they are a part of the home study development programs that are initiated and planned by the teacher.

One basic goal for any home work program is to develop at an early age the importance of good study habits so that assignments can be accomplished independently and not directly under teacher or adult guidance. The development of student responsibility,initiative and motivation are additional objectives in a well-designed home study programme.

CBSE has suggested alternatives to homework in order to reduce the burden of homework for children of the Primary School. Keeping in line with this, children will have interesting and exciting assignments that develop various learning skills. Referring to books, interpreting data, observing nature, involving in dialogues, recording touring experiences, story telling, group project activities, power point presentation, visiting banks, post office, etc. are a few such activities.

Homework assignment should not be considered as merely routine work with no purpose or objective. Parents should maintain close co-ordination with teachers on homework assignments. If the parent believes that a student is merely copying answers from other students or receiving excessive home work, this matter should be brought to the attention of the principal.

Handbook

 

Each student will be given a handbook in the beginning of the academic year. The name of the student, father's name, address, contact telephone number, e-mail id, date of birth and the House allotted should be filled in by the parent.

The Test/Term portion in each subject as well as the Test and Examination Time-Table should be written down neatly by the student in the Handbook duly attested by the class teacher / subject teacher. The daily home work should also be noted down by the student in the handbook.

Identity Card

 

An individual identification card with the student’s photo affixed and laminated on both sides will be issued to each student at the start of the academic year. This should be brought to school daily.
