Preparing to go to school after summer vacation

+1 vote

The time is almost there when schools are getting ready to re-open and to begin new session. It is hard for everyone to go back to the school after long break but it is important to understand that it is the same school routine which gives children the much needed stability and focus which helps them in the future? So how to prepare children for the new session!

Parents play a very important role for the child who is going to the school for the first time. Most of today's children have already seen play schools but going to a big school is all together a different task and while child may be happy about it, he may also be feeling nervous at the same time.

The playschool is generally small next to home school with fewer children but going to a big school in school bus with so many different children can make your child lose courage and confidence hence, it is important for the parents to prepare the child for this situation. It is best, if it is permitted, to take your child on the tour of the school before the school begins so that they can become familiar with the surroundings and atmosphere.

For children who are going to enter new class, have their own moments of anxiety. They may be happy about moving into a new class but they may be worried about who is going to be my new class teacher and stuff like that. Parents must understand this and help their child to cope with the situation and they must never use schools as mode of punishment. For ex, I will send you to a boarding school or wait I am going to report this to your class teacher. Talk to you children about the new things which he may get to see such as may be a new building of the school, new books, new bag, and may be new friends.

Students who are going to school after summer break must check their homework list to ensure that everything is completed.
Be supportive and watch the back of your child and he will grow into a citizen of the nation that we all can be proud of.

Safai bank is a new venture that helps reduce pollution in our environment. They visit schools and teach children on how to reduce pollution by requesting kids to get wrappers of biscuits, chocolates, chips, ice creams etc. These are collected and are picked up by a cement company who mix these wrappers into the cement kiln.

This mixture is very durable and long lasting and is then used for making roads and footpaths. The school or organisation that has help collect maximum wrappers and helped the environment gets an award and certificate.

The above has led to kids competing and making special efforts in collecting wrappers which would otherwise have been burnt by rag pickers on the street since it does not gain any benefit to them. This burning of wrappers increases the carbon dioxide and adds to air pollution.
Socialactivist Mili Shetty who takes up various such initiatives in the area says, "The venture is targeted at schools since kids eat a lot of junk food with wrappers. 

While the initiative was started with St Mary's school, the plan is to begin in all schools around Kandivli."

This article is an excellent view of a political leadership that views education as a vital long term asset building activity of the nation. Indeed, no state can consider offering its young citizens education as a luxury but a fundamental obligation and an investment into its own future.

Private Unaided schools which were granted subsidised  land by the Delhi Development Authority(DDA) in the national capital should seek approval from the government to hike the fees, said Supreme Court. 

The high court had held that schools, which were granted land at cheaper rates by DDA, cannot indulge in profiteering and commercialisation of education by increasing fees on their own and directed that prior approval from the directorate of education was a must before taking any such decision.

"Quantum of fees to be charged by unaided schools is subject to regulation by DoE... under the Delhi School Education Act, 1973 and it is competent to interfere if the fee hike by a particular school is found to be excessive and perceived as indulging in profiteering," the HC had said. Read more

Working with world-class partners and bringing together a consortium of banking and NBFC partners, technology players, credit assessment players and agencies iSPARK brings parents and schools the ultimate freedom in making it easy to pay school fees (for parents) and collect school fees (for schools).


For Parents: Basically the program converts the annual school payment process into a convenient monthly EMI based loan facility (at a nominal interest). The parent pays the bank directly. 


For Schools: The school gets the entire fee upfront at the start of the academic year and can better manage operations from improved cash flows. The school does not take the financial responsibility of parents' loans. Schools can also avail Infrastructure loans for building expansion and or other infra investment.

The demand for private schools may have resulted in a sharp decline in the student strength of government schools across the State, but a government school in Vijayapura district has reversed the trend, thanks to its alumni.

Set up on the day the country got its independence, the Government Higher Primary School in Hanumasagar village of Vijayapura district, which had just 60 students a few months ago, has now added 112 more to its fold. The new students left their private schools to enrol here.

This “trend reversal” is the result of an initiative by five former students who were pained over the dwindling student strength in their alma mater. “After passing out of school, five of us were serving as teachers in various government schools. When we came to know that our government school was gradually losing students to private schools, we decided to do whatever possible to break the trend,” said G.S. Jamkhandi.

Explaining the methods they adopted, he said that last summer vacation, the five of them, with the permission of the Block Education Officer, held special coaching classes in the school. “We deputed three teachers to teach mathematics, science and English. Our efforts yielded results, as the parents agreed to shift their children who were studying in private schools in three nearby villages,” he said.

Abdul Nadaf, father of Afreen Nadaf studying in standard six, said that after the teachers held meetings and training sessions, he was confident that his daughter would get better education in the government school. “I paid ₹10,000 as fee in the private school. Now, in the government school, besides quality education, I have been able to save money and there are various facilities such as mid-day meals, bicycles and free uniform,” he said. Afreen is elated too: “I was not happy in the private school. So was five of my cousins. After undergoing coaching, we decided to join this government school.”

Mathematics teacher Laksmi Hosamani said district in charge Minister M.B. Patil had assured of deputing three full-time teachers and arranging for bus service for students. He has also promised a grant of ₹10 lakh for renovation of the school and e-teaching facility.
