This teacher has special plans for Children’s Day?

Children’s day is around the corner. Anju Gupta, Headmistress (Primary) of Ahlcon International School, shares with us her thoughts about how they plan to celebrate the day in their school…

Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru rightly quoted, “Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have better tomorrow.”

For centuries, parents and teachers have shaped the personality of their students, doning several roles – guide, motivator or counsellor. But are we able to manage the childhood of milennials today as per the wishes of our Nehruji? Are we crafting a bright future for our country through our relentless efforts to guide learners to glory?There seems to be a big question mark on parenting today – whether parenting parents or our children. So, my idea of celebrating Children’s Day this year stems out of these important questions.

On November 14, all teachers will invite their class students, their parents and grandparents to school for full day and organise different interesting age-appropriate activities for them. This will give them an opportunity to spend quality time with each other. Since, nowadays, the parents are working and their hectic work schedules do not allow them to discharge their responsibilities towards their parents and their children effectively, this will be a godsend opportunity for them.

Through this initiative, we hope to improve relations of all the four stakeholders here –teachers, children, parents and grandparents. The upshot will be harmonious relationships amongst all collaborators which is the essence of education. We have to keep in mind the growing role of grandparents in today’s context.

It’s rightly quoted by Abigail Van Buren, “If we want our children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them and half as much money”.
