Message by the Principal, Rev Dr Praveen Martis SJ
Parents and Guardians are requested to co-operate with college authorities in enforcing discipline and regularity of study at home. In order that lessons may be duly understood, students should be devoted to study at home. If parents do not insist on regular attendance and home study, the results are surely to be disappointing to them.
Absence from class should be justified by a leave note from the students signed by the parent/guardian. Leave note for long absence due to illness must be supported by a medical certificate. A medical certificate does not automatically entitle a student to be granted attendance.
Absence from college examinations will be considered seriously. Absence, even for one subject should be justified by a written note. In case of illness during examinations, parents are expected to inform the Principal immediately. Re-examination cannot be considered as a matter of right.
Some parents express surprise at the end of the year at the unsatisfactory attendance and progress of their children, in spite of our sending progress reports to them after the examination.
Some students fail to hand over these progress reports to their parents/guardians. Hence parents are requested to come over to the college office and check in case reports are not received by them within reasonable time.
Parents are asked to meet the deans, class guides and other teachers if unsatisfactory progress or poor attendance is brought to their notice. A minimum of 75% attendance is required to complete the course, without which a student is not eligible to take the end-semester examination. They will not be readmitted to the college. We expect parents to participate in parents’ meetings and other activities of the college like Sports, Musical Evening and Annual Prize Distribution Day.
Attendance at Parent-Teacher meeting is obligatory. In case you are not able to attend for a just reason a written note should be sent to the Principal.
Written information will be sent to parents about study tours. Parents are specially asked not to allow their children to use a motorised vehicle without a valid licence. Parents are requested to enforce dress code prescribed by the college to their children/ward.
