  • Abiding by the policies and regulations, stated in the School Diary, which governs the day to day functioning of the school.

  • Checking and signing the notes in the school diary on a daily basis.

  • Encouraging and supporting the child to participate in all events and competitions.

  • Updating through the Weekly Transaction Report sent by mail every Friday.

  • Attending all PTMs and Parent Orientation Programme conducted at regular intervals.

  • Parents are strongly advised to meet the Educators in case of behavioural issues or academic concerns, without delay.
