She also told the parents that this year the school would check the durability of the shoes and then take appropriate action. The school will have to think whether other branded shoes could be suitable cost wise and durable. Parents agreed to have branded shoes , which would last longer and not very costly.
• Diwali Vacation : Parents mentioned that Diwali vacation schedule is scheduled before Diwali festival . Parents requested to change the schedule. Ashwini Madam assured them that care will be taken next year. This year we will continue as per the planner.
• Traffic Issue infront of the school gates :One of the major issues raised by the parents was about traffic congestion during open days , interaction days and during drop and pick up timings. One of the parents suggested that parents could drop students at the corner of the road. Keeping in mind the safety of students that was not accepted. Finally it was decided to approach the concerned authority and request to make the road “One Way” for proper management of traffic . Madam suggested that parents could avoid four wheelers and use two wheeler to ease the traffic issue. Car pulling would be a better solution.

• WhatsApp Groups : Ashwini Madam appreciated parents for forming whatsapp groups. She requested parents to analyse the messages sent before posting the reply.
• Open Day and Interaction Day : It has been observed that Parents do not follow the schedule according to the time slots on Interaction and Open Days which leads to delay for other parents. Ashwini Madam suggested that the Advisory members could mutually decide among themselves and share their timings so that they can remain present for half day on both these days. This would help to understand the problems faced by the parents and the teacher.
• Competitive Exams :The parents requested the school not to share their personal details to any outside organization like LIC, Meritnation etc . since these organizations keep calling the parents and disturbing them regarding their competitive exams. The school agreed to this point and will take care in future.
