Parents are Partners in Education
School age children spend 70% of their waking hours ( including weekends and holidays) outside of school, hence home environment ought to be an extension of the classroom and more importantly “parents need to be there".

Decades of research show that when parents are involved, it :

1.  improves children’s academic achievement
2.  improves parent-child relationships
3.  helps parents develop positive attitudes towards school.
4.  gives better understanding of the schooling process.
5.  better grades.
6.  better school attendance
7.  increased motivation, better self-esteem
8.  fewer instances of violent behaviour.

With CCE, parents need to trust the teachers and their assessment, hence more is the involvement the better it is.

With CCE the students are assessed in values / attitudes / social skills / thinking skills etc. and collaborative efforts will not only help understand but also rectify / give positive direction.

Moreover, parents can provide the teacher with information about their child’s relationships, interests, and experiences outside of the school or center. This information will enhance the teacher’s understanding of the child and contributes to more effective teaching.

For this reason parents-teacher interaction is necessary. Therefore parents are permitted to meet the teachers on every Saturday. The time schedule for parents to meet the teachers is given in the school diary.

         God, make me a better parent! Help me understand my children, to listen patiently to what they have to say and to answer all their questions kindly.
Keep me from interrupting them, talking back to them and contradicting them.
Give me the courage to confess my sins against my children and to seek forgiveness, when I know that I have done them wrong and have hurt their feelings.
Forbid that I should laugh at their mistakes or resort to shame and ridicule as punishment.
Let me not tempt a child to lie and steal.
         So, guide me hour by hour that I may demonstrate by all I say and do something that honestly produces happiness. Reduce, I pray, the meanness in me.
May I cease to nag and when I am out of sorts, Help me, O Lord, to hold my tongue.
Blind me to the little errors of my children, and help me to see the good things that they do.
Give me a ready word for honest praise.
         Help to treat my children as those of their own age, but let me not exact of them the judgements and convention of adults.
Allow me not to rob them of the opportunity to believe in themselves, to think, to choose and to make decisions.
Forbid that I should ever punish them for my self satisfaction.
May I grant them all of their wishes that are reasonable and have the courage always to withhold a privilege that I know will do them harm. God, make me a better parent!
