Worried about the safety of your kids? Attend classes with them

This academic session, Sri Sri Academy in Kolkata has invited mothers to spend a day in the school campus and see how the school and teachers function. This has been done to build mutual trust between the school and the parents.

Every day, one parent takes charge. She reaches the school at the time of the morning assembly, attends classes with children, joins them in laboratories, corridors or cafeteria. The mother on duty is expected to check if children are engaged in classes and whether teachers are using other mediums besides textbooks to teach.
