Parent teacher meetings are held regularly in which the teachers show through different mediums how the students perform and behave in the class and how the students have progressed over a time period and the parents too provide their perspective.
Students maintain what they consider their best work collectively in a student’s portfolio. This helps the students self-assess their performance and learning. The portfolio is shared by the students with their parents in a Student-Led Conference. This conference allows the students to play an active role in reporting their progress to their parents. The students also put – up an Exhibition in which they showcase their Inquiry Module which also shows the action they would take and it focuses on the global issues too.
This year World Food Day 2015, 16 October, will be observed for the 35th time. This auspicious occasion will also mark the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
The theme for World Food Day 2015 is “Social Protection and Agriculture: breaking the cycle of rural poverty”. This theme has been chosen in a bid to draw global attention to the role that social protection plays in eradicating hunger and poverty when it is prioritized in national development agendas.
Evidence shows that reliable and regular social protection schemes can help poor communities to overcome financial constraints and manage risks that usually discourage them from pursuing higher returns. When implemented on a large scale, social protection systems can also contribute to an overall reduction of the poverty gap, empowering families and communities.
Despite the successful expansion of social protection programmes worldwide, basic social protection coverage remains a privilege that only a small percentage of the world population can benefit from. Nevertheless, experiences show that the extension of social protection programmes in many countries has come at relatively low cost.
