At Presidency High School, it is extremely important for us to have the support of all parents. We try our best to make them a part of their child’s learning experience so that they continue at home, what we started at school. One of the many steps we take in this attempt is explaining to parents, the curriculum we follow at school in Math, Science, and English.
The event started with introductions as our coordinator talked about our academic and non-academic staff. After that, she spoke about the school calendar mentioned elaborately in the handbook. The calendar has all the events we conduct at school through the academic year.
After this, we went on to talk about the curriculum in the three main subjects: English, Maths, and Science in detail. For example, in English, we have a list of words that children must learn in a week. There are also comprehension passengers and vocabulary for them to go through. When it comes to Maths, we teach what we call Alpha Math. In every subject, some questions start from easy, and the difficulty level increases gradually. The science curriculum includes inquiry-based learning that helps improve reasoning skills.
After the detailed explanation, we went on to talk about the three different ways in which we can gain success. Further, the Academic Head spoke about homework policies and how quality is more important than quantity. She advised parents to take time out to help children finish their homework on time. She also focused on the importance of reading books and suggested spending 20 minutes a day on reading. The session also included formative assessments, summative assessments, and grading based on performance.
Our Principal also spoke to the parents about spending time with children, speaking to them about various topics, ensuring a healthy diet, and so on.
The session then concluded with talks about remedial classes for students who struggle with English (with the help of the MGuru app) and field trips as a part of extra-curricular activities to ensure a good mix of studies and entertainment. Arts & crafts, STEM education, and computers are a few other activities that children can participate in.
We hope all parents benefitted from this highly educational event.
