MAPUSA: Education brings about all-round development of a child, said an industrialist, Mr Michael Lobo, adding with proper education and guidance students could not only establish themselves well in life but could also become good citizens having good moral values.
Mr Lobo was speaking as the chief guest at a PTA meeting that was held at Sacred Heart High School at Anjuna.
Further speaking, he said that today parents should not just encourage students to excel in life but they should also support their children through good thoughts so that children could aspire to be good citizens.
“Education is needed, but more than that parents should also be supportive of their children in terms of imbibing in them good thoughts because we must remember that education not just includes academic progress but all-round progress,” he felt.
He also called upon for a better co-ordination between parents and teachers so that parents are aware of the activities of their children in school.
School principal, Fr Thomas Gonsalves, also spoke. Fr Gonsalves informed that the school would soon be receiving the Bal Rath.
School headmistress Ms Khan and other members of the PTA were also present. Three students of the school who excelled at the SSC examinations were also felicitated by Mr Lobo. NT
