PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION (PTA)
“St. Thomas College of Teacher Education Parent- Teacher Association” is functioning effectively in the college. The aim of PTA is to establish better rapport between parents and teachers as well as between teachers and students.
A parent-teacher conference is a short meeting or conference between the parents and teachers of students to discuss students’ progress at the college and find solutions to academic or behavioural problems. Parent-teacher conferences supplement the information conveyed by report cards by focusing on students’ specific strengths and weaknesses in individual subjects and generalizing the level of inter-curricular skills and competences.
The main objectives of the association are:
- To promote healthy relations among the members of the Association:
- To promote co-curricular and cultural activities of the college;
- To improve the infrastructural facilities of the college;
- To provide better educational amenities to the students;
- To provide scholarships, text books, note books and other essentials to deserving students;
- To introduce innovative and effective teacher training programmes; and
- To perform any other function that the Association may deem fit.
The ordinary membership of PTA is open to all the parents/guardians of all the students admitted in the college. The Manager or his nominee, the Principal and all the members of the faculty shall be the Executive members of the PTA.
