Klorofeel School believes parents are the first teachers. At our school, we take responsibility for the education and growth of our children, together with parents. Right through the year, we regularly interact with parents.
During the year, Klorofeel School has produced a book on Purposeful Parenting which we have shared with our parents.
We engaged with new parents (of students for the 2021-22 academic session) in December 2020, and then again in February 2021. These were interactive sessions, and this is what we learnt on:
What parents told us they expect from Klorofeel school
“It takes a village to raise a child” is an African proverb that means that an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment.
At Klorofeel School, we explain the proverb with this triad of Parent, Teacher and Community together influencing the growth and education of the Child (CH) at the centre of the triangle.
What parents expect of their children
Parent Interaction during Lockdown
We continued our interactions through the lockdown during second wave of Covid 19. We conducted Zoom interactive sessions, class wise, with all our existing parents in order to understand their concerns and also to update them on all the progress made by the school so far. We encourage and expect parents to ask questions and share their thoughts. Parents very often respond with appreciation of what the children have learnt. They also feel free to critic and provide negative feedback. We discuss with them and implement their suggestions in our daily routine.
As a practice, we encourage parents of the students to reach the school authority, whenever they want to discuss anything related to the development of the children. They often visit us too, discuss ideas, and exchange toys and books from our library.
