Time flies past quickly and we have successfully completed five years since the inception of the school. In these years we faced many challenges and came out victorious with your cooperation and guidance at various levels. The analysis of the year brought to the limelight the fact that most of the children lack reading habits and don’t spend time for studies. In this Tech savvy world most of the students are losing interest in paper print as they feel everything can be accessed through technology.
Now I may sound obsolete talking about books in this E-world, but the development of emotion, ex
Somehow I feel that book reading habit should start young. We can start with cartoon books to catch the fancy of young minds and gradually switch over to short stories and other genres of literature. Such a habit inculcates in the children the skill of critical analysis too. We have prescribed novel reading in the curriculum from class VI on wards just to bring our children closer to the books besides there are plenty of story books and magazines in the library which students can get issued to read at home. Parents too can help the children develop reading habits by starting with newspaper reading at home. They can be asked to read out news to their Grandparents on regular basis. This way children will pick up new vocabulary and use such words in writing.
I understand that this is a rural area and parents cannot help the children as most of them are unaware of the current educational trends. Still a small beginning with the newspaper reading (English/ Hindi) will open the gates for larger educational gains. Our efforts in this direction shall never cease and I am sure of your cooperation in this never ending journey for achieving knowledge.
