PARENT PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMME
A child is a natural learner, thinker and explorer. Education is one of the most important factors which can influence a child’s life and make it more meaningful. We, at DPS Coimbatore, believe in nurturing the child’s natural curiosity and instincts by providing opportunities to enhance their learning. The same is achieved through child-centric teaching-learning strategies with a plethora of activities that form the back bone of the learning environment. The Parent Partnership Programme thus provides a platform to enlighten the parents regarding the teaching methodologies followed in our school.
The Parent Partnership Programme for the academic session 2018 – 19 was held on 24th of March, 2018, within the school premises. The school building and premises were decorated with banners, charts and pictures which showcased the multi-faceted learning approach adopted in our school as part of teaching-learning process. Kiosks depicting “Khadi – The Gandhian Legacy,” “Annual Theme – Noise Pollution,” “Art Education Programme” and “School Safety and Wellness” were put up along the way to the Open Air Theatre – the venue of the PPP.
The parents started arriving at around 8 a.m. and were guided towards the Registration Counters for registering the names of their wards. As and when the registration was done after which they were directed towards the OAT.
The programme commenced with shloka and prayer by our teachers. The auspicious ceremony moved on with the classical dance by the students of classes II and III. The Head of the Institution, Mr. Ahmed Azad briefed the audience about the School’s Philosophy followed by our Headmistress Madam, Mrs. Chitra Venkateswaran briefing about Teaching Methodologies followed in our school. Various queries of the parents were also addressed during the session. Then, the parents were directed towards the First Floor of the Junior Wing Academic Building where different classrooms were allocated for displaying various teaching methodologies adopted in our school to achieve the requisite learning outcomes - “Thematic and Integrated Academic Curriculum”, “Math Magic – Jodo Gyan”, “Reggio Emilia Approach”, “Learning Centres”, “Puppetry”, “Cooking Activity”, etc.
After visiting various classrooms, the parents moved on to the Art Curative Show held in the Foyer and to the classrooms which showcased the artistic skills of our Dipsites, which left the parents in awe.
The parents left the venue with a sense of great satisfaction not only because of the child-friendly environment that would benefit their children, but also by witnessing a very well-organised event.
