The highest form of leadership is transformational leadership. Leadership is not by rank or designation; it is by attitude and by competence. In Bhagwad Gita, Lord Krishna says, “As the leader, so the people.” According to this axiom, leaders set an example and become role models. A true leader is intelligent, dynamic, energetic, active, self motivated and ready to act and take initiative in all walks of life. At Indraprastha, we strongly believe in the mantra of building relationships because that’s the magic of understanding small things and sustaining it for a lifetime.
- Studies show, that when families are involved in the education of their children in positive ways, children maximize on their untapped potentials and are more regular to school and demonstrate positive attitude and behaviour. The foundation for good parent teacher relationship is, frequent and open communication, mutual respect and a clear understanding of what is best for each individual child.
- The school organises orientation programmes for parents of children who are newly inducted in the montessori, primary, middle and secondary school. Such orientation programs are incredible opportunities for parents to know what to expect in the coming year and also equip themselves for it. The school explains the pattern for conducting examinations, the extracurricular activities, the support required from parents, etc.
