As always the kids put up a lovely show starting with prayers, Bhagvad Gita chanting and a talk show.
Mr. Jain gave a very interesting speech on how the kids pass through the important stages specially at 1std, 8th and the 11th standard. He also shared though provoking points on how parents spend little time with kids. Funnily he came up with the term “Google Mothers” which is in a way very true.
He also gave an insight into the recent government order of making Tamil as the second language, the representations made to the educational departments, the challenges it poses for teaching and more importantly the pressure and impact it might have on the kids who now needs to learn 3 languages at age 6. His hands were tied as it was more of a political decision.
The program was followed by awarding certificates to the young graduates and a lovely talk show which was mind blowing. The certificates were very nice with the photos of the kids integrated in the certificate.
Vote of thanks by the wonderful little one and parents shared their experiences with the school.
Some pointers for parents in my humble opinion
There is an option in the phone called Vibration/Silent mode. Please learn to use it else throw your phone in the washing machine. It then goes to silent mode.
Take a shower. Remember you are in a AC hall. The parent on your next seat might die. You don’t wanna go to jail.
We know you have an iPhone, iPad, camera, whatever. Please don’t keep walking up and down with the camera. Enjoy the moment. That’s important. There are professional photographer s who will do their job. That social media share can wait.
Last but not the least, the teachers were wonderful as always. The army behind the tiny tots who are what they are today because of such teachers. Thanks will not suffice. Am positive that Ambika miss and Uma miss have made an impact on Matt’s life and will be remembered by him always.
