What can I say? For sure Saint Arnold’s is emerging slowly and steadily as one of the best schools not only in the city but also in the state. The teachers and staffs here are friendly and co-operative.

Here, the stress is given more on the development of a student. I have great classmates from different religions and we enjoy our time together. Saint Arnold’s has always helped me whenever I needed. The introduction of the community service in the school has shown the generosity of the students for the poor as well as for their upliftment.

The green brigade team along with the teachers has visited many local barren lands and has planted many beautiful flower saplings. The introduction of the scouts and guides in the school has also helped in bringing a great change in the discipline of the school. I am really thankful to everyone from Saint Arnold’s. Go Saint Arnolds!!!

Parents are the ultimate ‘Role Models’ for children. Every word movement and action has an effect. No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than the parent. No modern technology and gadgets can replace the importance of the role of parents. Let us follow certain tips to make the period of summer vacation, a fruitful one for our kids.

Let the children start their day with a prayer. Prayer is talking to God and asking for strength and forgiveness.

Spend individual time with each child. Don’t criticize or constantly correct him/her - have fun goofing around.

Come home in time for dinner together – stimulated fun discussions.

Do tasks together from grocery shopping to building stuff – it can be fun and educational.

Share family stories. Dig out your old photo albums and look through them with your children.

Let children interact and spend time with their grandparents. Ask them to go out for walk.

Make them understand the difference between A `Want’ and A `Need’. Provide pocket money. Teach them how to manage needs within the given budget and smarties may even manage to squeeze out savings from it.

Be a role model. Kids follow parents’ actions, but not so much the parents’ words.

“The sign of great parenting is not the child’s behaviour. The sign of truly great parenting is the parents’ behaviour.”
