Mangaluru, Nov 9: Education is often mistaken to be confined within the classrooms but what we overlook is that education starts at home. Experiencing early learning and care directly from the parents, helps children to develop their social and emotional centres of the brain. It makes them gain mental stability and career success later on in life.
On November 5 Ladyhill Victoria PU College organised a Parent Teacher Student Meet as a part of the holistic approach for students well being in the college hall. Chief guest Dr Devi Prabha Alva, assistant professor in Commerce of St Agnes College (Autonomous) was the resource person for the day. She addressed the parents on the A-F rule guide which would help the children in being successful and also the key role of Parents in shaping their child’s character and future. She stressed on the necessity of acceptance, balanced emotions, communication, dreams, empathy and friendly relations between the parent and the child.
The input session had a prayer invocation headed by Sonal Veigas and group of II Commerce. Miss Astel Neema Karkada, lecturer of Commerce welcomed the audience along with the brief introduction of the speaker. College coordinator Sr Supriya AC announced the results of the mid term examination and also congratulated the young achievers who excelled their exams. Veekshitha, lecturer in Physics coordinated the entire session.
The parents’ active participation in large number was overwhelming and led to the grand success of the programme. Chirashree R K of I Science compered the session and Fathima Safa of II Science proposed the vote of thanks. After the session, the parents interacted with the teachers to check their ward’s progress in academics and co- curricular activities. Parents supportive behaviour and involvement in such events helped students boost their self-esteem and improve their attitude towards the College and peers.
