The school held its first Annual General Body Meeting on 22nd June, 2019 in the School Auditorium. Dr. Vincent Alva, Principal of Milagres College, Kallianpur, Udupi was the resource person. After, the prayer song and words of welcome Mr. Vincent dealt on the topic of “Parents Role and Responsibilities in the Education of the child”. He elaborated on the theme and stressed that “Education begins at home, the school only imparts literacy”. He encouraged the parents to be pro-active partners with the school to bring about the holistic development of their children. The importance of being vigil and alert to see what their child is learning, who their companions are? We need to draw a margin of being friendly yet demanding with our children. Today, the social media is playing a significant role in everyone life and we all need social interaction and dialogue because we are all living in a society. In this regard, parents were advised to check the posts of their children on social media, talk with them, understand them and their feelings, discuss issues pertaining to their problem and not to compare with your problem. Help them to see the beauty of virtue and help them to inculcate respect towards the elderly. The teachers are merely pointers to help us see where they stand and how they move ahead in life. Our role is a greater role of accompanying them through life.
