  1. First PTC: Dear Parents/Guardians, we are thankful to all of you who made the first PTC of the year successful by appearing patient, concerned about your child and brief and polite in your conversation.

The PTCs serve the purpose of developing better relations between the School and the Parents, all in the best interest of the children.

For the next PTC, kindly keep these points in mind:

  • The child should be along for the PTC, preferably in school uniform.
  • Avoid the use of regional language and mobile phone.
  • The child should leave the meeting room when sensitive issues are discussed.
  • If you wish to discuss matters in detail, we request that you attend the PTC early or that you request to meet with the teacher on a different day for longer conversation.
  1. Environment Day: we hope that the successful outcome of celebrating the Environment Day is that our students have learnt about the ecosystem, that they are educated about organic food and lastly, that they develop nature friendly habits.

We are hopeful that the young generation will grow up to be concerned about the beautiful world we are responsible of caring for.

Hadith of the Day

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The example of a believer is that of a fresh tender plant; from whatever direction the wind comes, it bends it, but when the wind becomes quiet, it becomes straight again. Similarly, a believer is afflicted with calamities (but he remains patient till Allah removes his difficulties.) And an impious wicked person is like a pine tree which keeps hard and straight till Allah cuts (breaks) it down when He wishes.”

Sahih Al-Bukhari – Book 70 Hadith 547
