Fatima Convent High School has an active Parent Teacher Association. The PTA of our school consists of parents from different walks of life who keep a keen interest in the matters which are of utmost importance to our students. The members of the PTA being parents themselves make sure common problems are solved with the help of the management of the school. Various issues like cleanliness around the School, traffic management, Mid- Day Meal Scheme. Every year we have outgoing members and incoming members which make sure our Committee gets new ideas and suggestions. Our teachers also play very important role in the Committee. Various duties are assigned to the teachers who are members of the PTA.
We make sure we get the best Resource Persons to deliver talks to our parents which mostly highlights the changing and challenging environment the child faces.
The Sisters of the Apostolic Carmel take immense pride in the loyalty of their staff. The teachers take a lot of trouble in academics, in getting the students to participate in the competitions held in the state of Goa. They ensure the participation of each and every student in the class assemblies. The teachers have always maintained a good rapport with the administration.
The PTA executive committee for the year 2015-16:
It is with the support and cooperation of the PTA that we are motivated towards attaining the objectives and goals of the School.
Parents are earnestly requested to co-operate with the school authorities by keeping to the following regulations:
- The Headmistress will be available between 8.30 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. on School days. At other times only by previous appointment.
- Do not ring up to the office except in urgent cases. The students and staff members will not normally be called to the phone.
- When communicating with the Headmistress, parents are requested to mention in their letter the standard and division of the pupil. This should be done neatly.
- Parents are requested not to remain within the school premises during class hours especially Primary and Pre-Primary Section Parents.
- The engagement of private tutors, is discouraged as very often they prove injurious to real progress.
- Parents are expected to make good any damage done, to furniture, library books etc. The school does not hold itself responsible for loss of books, money etc.
- Parents should bring complaints, if any, to the Headmistress and not to the teachers.
- Games, Guiding, P. T., Yoga, Work Experience and Drawing are compulsory subjects. Parents are reminded to provide their children with the required material for their work.
- You, the parents/guardians, are the real educators of your children. The School is the helper and plays a complementary role in the matter. You should, therefore involve yourselves in your children’s work, be interested in their homework and study, and give us a helping hand in educating your child’s efficiency.
- Parent/guardians are expected to do their part in inculcating regular work habits and discipline. They should see that their Children prepare their lessons, which ought to be noted by them in their calendars. They should make sure that their daughters/wards, especially in the higher classes, devote at least three hours of study daily.
- However, nobody can be expected to study profitably without proper relaxation, recreation and games. Hence parents/guardians should encourage their daughters/wards to participate in numerous co-curricular activities organized in the school.
- Youth today have to face problems and difficulties different from those 10 years ago. Therefore encourage your daughters/wards to confide in you with their confidence to enable them to talk things over freely with you. Give them your time.
- Please check the home-work of your child at least once a week. You are expected to sign the remarks in their calendars or books and their progress reports issued after every examination. You are requested to sign them as a proof that you have noted them. Failure to do so may put your daughter/ward to great inconvenience and render her liableto be sent home even during school hours.
- On their birthdays, the children should come to school in uniform. They will refrain from distributing sweets and gifts in school.
- You are requested not to give your child/ward huge amount of money unnecessarily.
- You are requested to come to school whenever called, either by the school authorities or the teachers. You should especially make it a point to come to collect your daughters/wards report when called.
- If you require your daughter/ward to return home before school closes, ask for leave in writing in her calendar and come personally to take the child.
- Parents/guardians and others may not meet the students or the teachers during school hours without the express permission of the Principal. Teachers can be contacted only when they have a free period. An appointment should be made with them in advance.
- We have a Parent – Teacher Association in the school. It aims at fostering cordial and friendly relations between the members of the Staff and the parents, so that there is a better understanding and co-opera-tion between them and the school. The PTA is a requirement demanded by the Directorate of Education and hence all parents are expected to become its members. Moreover, they are expected to actively participate in the activities of the association. This is very essential today because the proper education of the children can only be looked after if there is a close co-operation between School and home.
