It offers great opportunities for parents to meet teachers and to share with them news of special upcoming events and ways they can get involved.

The first day of school is always exciting for both students and teachers. As students enter the class room for the first time they need to feel at home. It can be done by creating a welcoming environment, organizing classroom supplies etc. and being greeted by a friendly way.

Open house is held soon after the examination  in each term. The open house is aimed at helping the parents in monitoring the progress of their ward. It allows the teachers an opportunity to create a personal connection with parents. Parents` presence is compulsory for all open house. This is also an event held to allow parents to look around the school and learn about it. In elementary classes parents come and go during sheduled hours and teachers may be willing to discus individual student`s progress.But in higher classes parents and teachers meet each other face to face to build a partnership, one that lasts all school year long. Teachers utilize this forum to discuss the strong and weak points- friends,family, psychological,child information,academic performance, tricky situations etc. – of children with parents concerned and prepare an action plan and monitor timely.
