Dear Parents


“You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back. “ ~William D. Tammeus

In my long association with teaching, I have seen many phases of parenting and many faces of life. As I walk through, I realise that the bond of school and a child gets stronger if the adhesive of understanding are Parents. DPS Mathura Road has completed its 60 years of giving very good and solid base of education. On this momentous occasion as a Principal of this esteemed institute I take this opportunity to congratulate you as an excellent example of good parenting. With your support and best wishes the school is celebrating its Diamond jubilee this year. Our institute has witnessed and will be witnessing some very large scale cultural extravaganzas and as a Proud Principal I can say that all this has been possible due to your co-operation, understanding, love and blessings.

Parents I also take this opportunity to share my thoughts on few important aspects of life and Parenting. Parenting is the greatest responsibility that any couple can take on but it involves careful attention to every need of the child in order to ensure that he/she has a complete all round development. Parents face an overwhelming responsibility to monitor their child's health and simultaneously begin the process of moulding the child into a sensitive, curious and bright individual. Daunting, as the entire process of bringing up a child may seem, it is a charge that has successfully been accomplished by parents over the centuries.

Some of the most important lessons of life are taught at home. Parents must take responsibility and take an active part in the education of their children. After 35 years of being part of the education system, one can see why some students are successful while others are strugglers. In many cases, the education received at home is the difference.

You can't just leave it all up to the teacher. Sure, it's their job, but even the best and brightest can be hard pressed to address the individual needs of every child, especially in a crowded classroom. Children still need personal attention, so it's the role of the parent to make sure they get it. Stay in touch with your child's assignments, tests and ongoing projects. Check with the school if not every week then at least twice a month to be aware of the developments of school and of your child. Set aside time each day to offer help. Be available and enthusiastic; your child needs to feel like you want to be there and that helping them isn't a chore. Connect with their teachers regularly to keep up with how things are going in the classroom. If you find your child needs extra help, be active in getting it, or better yet, work with them yourself. Tutoring your own children can be rewarding for both of you.

Parents understand the importance of our values and morals. Teach them as much as you can that more than the wealth of materialistic belongings richness of knowledge is worth a mention and possession. Your relationship with your child is the foundation for his/her relationships with others.”
