A mega parent-teacher meeting (PTM) was organised on Monday in all government schools across the state with focus on Class X and XII who are going to take board exams soon.
The pre-board exams ended on February 12 for Classes X and XII. Monday’s PTMs were organised after the pre-board exam results to tell parents how they could help their wards better their overall performance in the exams, contribute in utilising their time purposefully and maintenance of good atmosphere at home.
There are over 4,000 secondary and senior secondary schools in the state. In total, there are 14,000 schools.
The PTMs were held for junior classes too as recently Students Assessment Tests (SAT) were also conducted. The SATs are standardised tests conducted for all the classes every two months.
The mega PTMs were held on the lines of Delhi government schools.
Director Secondary Education Amneet P Kumar visited Government Senior Secondary School, Sector 6, Panchkula, and interacted with parents and students.
In Gurugram, mega PTM was organised in 121 schools having more than 15,000 students. Here students and parents were told where they were weak in the board examinations and how to correct that weakness. Teachers also told parents how to make children happy at home so that they get good marks in the exams. Teachers said that regular communication with parents would improve the standard of education.
District Project Officer Gurugram Ritu Choudhary visited the mega PTM at Government Senior Secondary School, Nathupur, where she met the parents, teachers and students.
“The aim of the PTM is to have students well-prepared before the board exams. The further education of the children who get more than 75 per cent marks in the board exam can be arranged if needed,” said District Project Officer Ritu Choudhary.
