Open day- 1st Term, 2022/2023 Academic Session
We are glad to have had a wonderful open day as we all anticipated from the beginning of the term and academic session.
This term’s open day was a really special one as this term is the first term in a new academic year – the 2022/2023 academic year. Thus, it was highly important for our dear parents to fully be involved in the open day. About all our children moved from one class to another as they graduated at the end of the last academic session, last term. Being in new classes, they were to meet new class teachers.
Meeting The Teachers
We were delighted to see parents come in, in tens, making their way to the waiting hall on arrival and being led to the headteacher’s office and to the classrooms. Lots of parents had heard many exciting stories about their kids’ new teachers and were really delighted to see these teachers in person, for those who had not had the opportunity. Of one teacher, a parent said: “My daughter has been telling me of Mr. Innocent and she hasn’t let me rest. I’m happy I’ve seen “the” Mr. Innocent today”.
Importance of the Open Day
This term’s open day is the first of this academic session, and that, for some reasons, makes it a very important one. About all children were at the beginning of this term, introduced to new teachers. This means that our teachers, although well trained, will have to work towards getting to know and understand their new kids and get their kids to come to know, love and understand them, their new teachers. For our teachers, getting to know their kids would involve knowing their strengths and weaknesses and how best to help them.
Here in PMIA, we strive to have ourselves, our kids and our parents benefit fully from the open day. On this day, we discuss with our parents the strengths and weaknesses of their children, drawing their attention to pertinent areas that need their attention. We strive to help them better understand certain aspects regarding their children, how they can be helped, how certain potentials can be built on and how we can work together to build the children into the expected result, academically, mentally and emotionally. We also pay keen attention to matters brought to our notice, so as to put such matters into our plan for the rest of the term and the academic session as the need may be.
Here are some positive remarks we got from the open day.
“My boy is doing very well. He has really improved since I brought him into this school. I’m also impressed with his performance in the tests this term, seeing him scoring 26,27 over 30. I want him to get to the point of scoring 30/30. And I know that it’s possible.” — Mrs Onyekachi
“I wanted a school in which my daughter will learn and measure up to international standard and also be able to speak well and fit in well too in different areas if she happens to go abroad. And i’m happy i’m getting that.” — Mrs. Onyedikachi
We are thankful to all our parents who made time from their busy schedules to be I n school today for this important event. We hope that you see the benefit of this in your children in no time. We hold in our hearts the very best wishes for you.
