‘We are Family’
The parent teachers meet – ‘we are family’ was held on 4th November, 2015 in the chembur campus. This meet was the first of its kind initiative to bring the family member of the students of the present batch to interact with the principal, faculty and students.
The objectives of the meet were:
- To orient the parents about the components and activities of the new two year B.Ed. course.
- To make them aware of the need for emotional support in the successful completion of the course.
- To provide an opportunity for the parents to interact with the teachers and discuss about their wards.
- To provide a platform for exchange of views or suggestions or clarifications.
The principal, Dr. Sunita Wadikar addressed the gathering and gave a brief orientation of the new two year B.Ed course. The teachers in – charge of certain components of course like Practice teaching, Co curricular activities, Community work and Extension work gave a overview of the activities, the time and efforts it entails.
Our special invitees for the parent teachers meet were Ms. Suman Anantnarayan, Ms. Pooja Aggarwal and their family members. The family members of the two alumni shared their experiences of how they co – operated and provided the emotional support to their wards, enabling them to complete the B.Ed course with flying colours. The parents and spouses shared their views and gave suggestions.
The meet enabled us to take the first step to meeting our objectives of the interactive session. The parents and the spouses welcomed this initiative of a parent teachers’ meet at the college level and appreciated the management for their kind gesture and agreed to participate wholeheartedly in this endeavour.
