“Whose child is this?” I asked one day
Seeing a little one out at play
“Mine”, said the parent with a tender smile
“Mine lo keep a little while
To bathe his hands and comb his hair
To tell him what he is to wear
To prepare him that he may always be good
And each day do the things he should”

”Whose child is this?” I asked again
As the door opened and someone came in
‘Mine”, said the teacher with the same tender smile
“Mine, to keep just for a little while
To teach him how to be gentle and kind
To train and direct his dear little mind
To help him live by every rule
And get the best he can from school”

“Whose child is this?” I asked once more
Just as the little one entered the door
“Ours” said the parent and the teacher as they smiled
And each took the hand of the little child
“Ours to love and train together
Ours this blessed task forever.”

Parent Student & Teacher Relationship

These profound words explain explicitly, the importance of both, teachers and parents in the life of a child. Together they lay the foundation stone of the child’s future. The need to maintain a harmoniously delicate balance between home and school is therefore essential in making this foundation strong and secure.

DPS Dooars encourages a healthy communication between parents and teachers In the interest of the child. This is encouraged through meeting sessions between parents, teachers and the principal where they can express their understanding and intimate insights into the needs of the child. The DPS family is open to sharing of concerns and grievances of parents – both for academic and non-academic enhancement. A non-intimidating and friendly relationship with the teachers places the child in a position to communicate and approach them with any issue.
