PARENT TEACHER MEETINGS are an essential area of school dynamism where the parents and the teachers interact to know the child better by mutually discussing various issues that need attention in everyday life
PARENT CONTACT DAY Every Friday parents are expected to visit their ward's class or any other class that they wish to and this enhances confidence in the school that they have put their child into. As an extension of parent contact programme, we invite parents to be a part of the Schook Assembly and ultimately the school system becomes transparent to the parents.
OPEN HOUSE These weeks for parents is an interesting activity where they observe the teaching patterns and also the perceptiveness of the same in the students
PARENTS INTERFACE WITH SCHOOL Interaction of School with parents through different modes like open house system, orientation programmes, parent buddy system and scheduled parent teacher meeting are encouraged both in a formal and informal method, implementation of School activities and annual curriculum plan.
PARENT BUDDY SYSTEM It has worked out very well for the school. The parents (non-working) mothers are complimented for their PEDAGOGIC SKILLS and are given a chance to teach. The system motivates and boots their confidence
PEER EDUCATOR SYSTEM April is a time for the corrections of the Board papers and the schools necessarily extends help to the CBSE board by allowing deputed teachers to leave as examiners for the purpose. It is the beginning of the session and a lot of activities are on in the school. Yet the school continues the normal schools with the help of PEER EDUCATOR SYSTEM calling upon the ex- students to be mentors and facilitators till the teacher resumes duty. It boosts the confidence of the students who brush up their knowledge for future growth and makes them realise the worth of teachers in being capable of maintaining discipline and transacting knowledge.
Class Library - We have class libraries which keep the children occupied when they have some free time. The class library also has study books to help the children who do not bring their books to school. This helps reduce the weight of the bag and problems faced by children in class.
Weighing machines have been given to each class so that each school bag may be weighed to keep a check on its weight apart from regular inspection of the books.
Therapeutic use of dance movements - This has proved a great help specially for children with special needs and for children coming from under privilege section of the society. There are many advantages from dance, our physical and mental development and concentration increases. Mind becomes calm, cheerful and healthy with the practice of dance.
Introduction of Artificial Intelligence - Keeping pace with CBSE's initiative, to incorporate new-age technology lessons and other digital skills in the curriculum, Apeejay School, Salt Lake has introduced Artificial Intelligence as a Skill subject in Classes VIII and IX. This machine learning aims at enhancing teaching -learning engagements both for students and teachers.
From Passive Screen time to Passive Field time - “The Fit India Movement“ as inaugurated by Honourable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi aims to encourage people to inculcate physical activity and sports in their everyday lives. Physical activity and exercises have immediate and long-term health benefits. It not only improves our health but also reduces the risk of developing several diseases but also improves our quality of life.
