Arafa is blessed to have a well functioning Parent Teacher Association that works constructively for the welfare of the school. Our PTA gels wellwith all the endeavours of the school. It never misses any opportunity to upgrade our school facilities. Arafa’s PTA is an indispensable factor of the school which fosters Arafa in all its walks.
PTA serves an important platform providing two-way communication between school and parents. The Child’s performance even at school is largely determined by the environment at home. Therefore parents’ involvement in the learning process at school is absolutely essential. There is an increasing need for regular parent- teacher interaction. Through such interactions, parents come to know certain undesirable traits in their child which can be traced to environment and relationship in the family. Once they come to know about it, they may be able to modify their behavior at home before permanent damage is done to psyche of the child. This interaction should not be casual, limited to exchange of pleasantries and informing some good points about the child which the parents wants to hear. It should be serious and institutionalized interaction with records of issues discussed so that corrective action is taken and progress is meaningfully reviewed in subsequent interactions. Parents greatly affect their children’s behavior. Children are like sponges – they model everything a parent does and incorporate what they see into their own lives. It is important that parents set the right examples for their children. Negative examples can be detrimental to a child’s development and can lead to bad behavior.
