Dear Students Start today with positive Everyday is a chance thoughts and expectations. to begin again. Don’t focus on the failures -Catherine Pulsifer of yesterday.

Dear Parent Aristotle once said, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue the academic excellence but also to motivate and empower the students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and productive members of an ever-changing global society. Converting every individual into a self-reliant and independent citizen, our school provides an amalgamation of scholastic and co-scholastic activities. ‘Let us keep alive the child’s inborn sense of wonder, let us arouse their curiosity to discover the mystery of the world we live in!’ Alongside imparting education to match the advancements in technology and globalization, we empower our students to march ahead with MVN’s ethos of moral values and principles. We constantly strive to instill these qualities in our children. We take pride in helping them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the future. Our vision is to provide them with a platform to showcase their innate talents. We are committed to the improvement and growth of our students. We would like to see them soar to new heights and taste success in all their endeavours. I expect sincere cooperation from parents and guardians for the attainment of school’s objectives. “Empathy is communicating that incredibly healing message of ‘You are not alone’ -Brene Brown Vandana Laul Primary Coordinator

Wouldn’t life be more pleasant if kids just listened? Dear Parent As parents, we all struggle when it comes to dealing with negative behavior of our children, particularly selective listening or no listening at all. It annoys us to the limits when the child inspite of telling or explaining multiple times just does not listen. We move from telling to explaining and justifying to sometimes even shouting at the child, but still the desired behaviour could not be achieved. Following are some strategies to help you make your child listen to you: 1. Most of the time, children know what not to do but are not clear about what needs to be done. Please give clear instructions and cross check with your child if he/she understood your instruction and expectation or not. 2. Grab their attention first by taking their name or asking a simple question. Once they look at you, then give the command in simple and brief sentences. Ex. I want you to do ___ now. 3. Give a command and then give them time to comply with it. After giving a command, count to five in your mind before adding anything or giving the next one. 4. Be mindful of your choice of words, tone and pitch while giving a command. When children feel supported and respected, they pay attention. A bad command would be, “Be careful otherwise you will fall down.” A good command would be, “_____ (Name), hold my hand and we will go together.” 5. Be mindful of your own listening skills. Children listen to us when they feel they are listened to. 6. Pay attention to what is not working and stop doing that. To quote Mr. Einstein, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If your child does not listen to your shouts across the room, it is time to take another tactic to get the desired behaviour.” Happy Parenting! Archana Bapat School Counsellor
