Learn more to achieve more!
There is no barrier to learn things if we are ready to enhance our knowledge and improve certain things in us. As a teacher, growth is constant and every day is new learning. Change and new learning can be incorporated and instilled only when teachers are observed. Teacher observation holds great responsibility as a whole and minute details are taken into consideration. To explain the teacher observation criteria’s and how it is helpful for the teachers in their personal appraisal, the teachers had a session by the Principal. The session gave all the teachers an idea about how an effective class can be taken and the different points to be kept in mind while planning a lesson.
Every teacher was provided with the teacher observation form for future reference. The session concluded with a demo class by one of the teachers which were an added advantage for all.

Fun with learning!
Holiday practice work provides the perfect opportunity to keep their “school brain” ticking over and keeps them challenged and stimulated. As our children grow up, homework becomes a more important part of their schooling, allowing them to develop vital skills such as independent research. School life has opened up a plethora of activities and umpteen challenges for modern-day learners. Gone are the days when imparting lessons would be conventional and compressed into the rigorous straightjacket modules.
It has been observed and researched that learners, nowadays, are burdened with tremendous expectations and academic pressure. It is undeniably true that vacations should be utilized to the hilt wherein the learners along with their parents can break the monotony and free their minds vacationing in exotic locales and look after their overall development of body, mind, and soul.

Children too have self- esteem.
Self -esteem is one’s belief about his/her own worth and value. It is how good people feel about themselves. It can be positive or negative. We need to remember that children too have self- esteem. Their self-esteem is largely influenced by the way their parents treat them. Research conducted on this construct proved that children tend to develop high self-esteem when their parents treat them with warmth. Such parents show encouragement and interest in child’s activities and share positive and constructive criticism. This attitude, in turn, makes children feel attended and valued. Such children with positive or high self-esteem feel confident, think good about themselves, believe in themselves and are proud of all what they do. They always feel liked and accepted. Such children may not hesitate to try new things and do their best. Such children will surely cope with mistakes and they will try again, even if they fail.
Only happy parents can generate a happy generation…
A Real parent is the one who helps their children to eradicate their personality defects, imbibe good qualities and make the life of their children happy and successful. However, many parents feel that buying costly clothes, mobile phones or other electronic gadgets, eatables and paying high fees for coaching classes are their only duties. And they falsely believe that these things help children to lead a happy and successful life.
HOW TO MAKE PARENTING FREE FROM STRESS
As I discussed in the previous issue of this newsletter, only parents who are free from stress will be able to communicate with their children effectively. Only such parents can teach their children to live a stress-free life. Children do not feel to talk to parents who are always under stress. They do not feel to convey their ideas, thoughts, and problems to such parents. Hence, it is necessary that the parents remain stress-free.
