We introduced home visits formally in senior school in the last academic year and it has proved to be an important milestone in helping teachers connect with the students and their families.
Most parents have warmly welcomed this idea and we look forward to your support for this initiative, this year as well.
As mentioned earlier, home visits is a platform that will help the teachers interact with you, understand your goals and aspirations for your child, the relationship the child shares with the parents, siblings and other family members; the environment back at home, the kind of upbringing and exposure the child has, the schedule of the child etc.
This will help teachers connect better with the students and their families and will help in developing the right approach for planning the way forward in guiding and mentoring the students.
Mentor teachers of your ward will seek your appointment through a phone call for a mutually convenient time – before or after school, or on weekends. The teachers will be visiting your home for approximately 45 mins and it would be desirable if they could meet all the family members (all the members who stay in the house) and interact with them along with the student being there.
Parents are not expected to offer anything to the teachers. You may offer tea, coffee, lemonade, buttermilk etc. out of geniality.
We believe that you will support the school in this endeavor in taking a step forward towards knowing your child better and forging a way ahead towards his/her bright future.
