THE NEED FOR PARENT-SCHOOL SYNERGY IN RAISING AND NURTURING BALANCED STUDENTS
All thanks and adoration to God Almighty for the successful completion of the session. The ride was bumpy with many ups and downs. Thankfully, these did not hamper the aims of the school.
To our indefatigable and ever- responsive parents, a million thanks for not failing in your financial commitment to the school and ensuring that your wards had the necessary materials to study in the school. God in His infinite mercies will continue to supply your needs in Jesus name amen.
As we prepare for a new session by September 2023, the school calls for a parent-school synergy to consolidate the parents’ expectations with the school’s vision and mission. As Helen Keller said, “Alone we can do so little but together we can do so much”; therefore, dear parents, you are enjoined to see the school personnel as co-parents in the training and nurturing of your wards.
The school will continually ensure that our students are not only academically grounded but also morally and spiritually sound to confront the uphill task of advanced schooling and adulthood. To do this effectively, parents are to make certain that their wards obey the school’s rules and regulations which will in turn make them disciplined now and later in life. Aiding students in flouting the school’s rules and regulations makes the students undisciplined and unruly, and projects the message that parents support their wards’ offences which negates the overall intention of raising a disciplined, godly and cultured generation of students.
Also, there’s need for parents to cooperate with the school in correcting students’ unacceptable behavioural traits. When a student is punished for engaging in any unlawful act as defined by the school, dear parents, please do not deem it as an attempt to witch-hunt the student involved or to attack the student’s parents for negligence but as an attempt to avert an irreparable consequence.
Parents are to work with the school in monitoring their children’s academic progress. It is important that at the beginning of each term, the students’ notes and textbooks are checked, assignments and tests are followed up. Teachers should be consulted in case of any weakness or challenge observed by the parents. These actions will help the students to sit up, be more studious, confident and determined to succeed because there’s someone at home concerned and checking them.
In conclusion, collaborating with the school is now more important than ever before as students live in a decadent and absolutely polluted society and it is therefore imperative that parents are on the same page with the school with regard to disciplining, monitoring and correcting of their wards. It is the school’s prayer that these demanding and time-consuming efforts will not be unrewarded! I pray that none of your expectations over these future stars be cut short. Amen
This term was lively and fun packed. Thanks to all our parents
