Mahatma Gandhi has said, "By education I mean an overall all-round drawing out of the best in
child and man-body,
mind and spirit"
Administrators and teachers everywhere recognize the important contributions parents make towards a child's success in school. There is no question about it - success at school begins at home. One of the most important components of a good school is the partnership between the school and parents, who work together for the best interest of their children. This close partnership between parents and school is one of the exceptional strength of DPS Bhilai.
In the most successful classrooms, teachers have established specific routines for the children to follow. This means giving the children a specific place to find and keep materials, a set schedule for classroom instruction, etc. A fixed timetable with the teacher's consistent standards, forms a smooth running classroom where the children have the security of understanding their environment and are reinforced positively for their contributions.
At home too, it is important to provide routines. Many families build a daily "quiet time" when the television is turned off. This quiet time provides students the opportunity for completing schoolwork or for recreational reading if there is no homework, and helps to develop self-discipline, stimulate imagination, and enhance reading skills.
Along with timetables and routines, parents should keep in mind that childhood is a special time of learning, exploration and growth. Children need to be provided free time to explore their world and experience the joy of discovery.
Commitment to the cause of giving the best possible education to our children is the key to success and we hope that all parents will help us in our mission.
