They were honoured with medals and certificates. Parental Cooperation Right from the time of admission it is mothers who are shouldering maximum responsibility. It is observed that mothers are bringing the children to school and taking them back. Very few fathers shoulder this responsibility. Parental cooperation has improved over the years. Above 95% parents attend the Parent Teachers Meetings now. There are 5% parents not paying proper attention towards their child. They do not send the child neatly dressed to school, don’t give proper tiffin, and don’t focus on their child’s studies. This year names of such students have been struck off. New Admission Quality At the time of interview it is observed that some parents bring their child very neatly dressed for the interview where as some children are very shabbily dressed. Parents of shabbily dressed children are told about cleanliness and hygiene. Quality of new admission is improving. People are realizing the importance of education. Most of the children who are coming for interview are answering except a few who are not ready to speak. On the basis of age and knowledge they are selected in different classes. Some children who came for L.N. interview were overage. Their test was taken and if they qualified the test for UN or Prep they were selected in that class. Academic Staff Staff is well qualified. Most of the teachers are trained. The new teachers who have been appointed in the last six years are all with English medium back ground. Weakness or challenges i) Illiteracy Most of our students are first generation learners. Their parents are illiterate and hence they do not get any support from their family. No one at home is able to guide them in their studies, converse in English with them etc. ii) Abusive language A number of parents use abusive language at home with their children. Children also use this language in school. Hence a lot of grooming is required. iii) Children come shabbily dressed Few students of Pre-Primary and Primary are coming to school shabbily dressed. Parents of such students have to be called and warned again and again. iv) Poor quality tuition for students A big number of students are taking tuitions but the quality of tuition is very poor. The tutors themselves don’t have proper knowledge. This time teachers checked the tuition work of students and asked the parents to change the tutor if he/she was not upto the mark. v) Parents giving physical punishment at home Few parents specially fathers beat their children very badly at home. Such parents have been called and counselled by the teachers and Principal. vi) Children not doing home work/doing wrong home work There are some students who are not doing their home work. They are not devoting proper time to studies at home. Some times home work is not done because there is no one to guide them at home. Doing wrong home work shows that the people guiding the child at home don’t have proper knowledge themselves. vii) Working Students Several children especially boys are working in order to support their family. They are unable to devote time to their studies at home. Some come to school directly from work where as some go to work after school. There are some girls who have to do a lot of house hold work. It is seen that boys are not devoting much time to their studies at home. viii) Outlook of Parents Gradual change in outlook is being witnessed. Parents are realizing the importance of education but still there is a big number who feel that class XII is sufficient. Girls need not study further and they should be married after Class XII. There are parents who permit their child to study further but do not permit them to take admission in a far off College. Some feel that their daughters will get spoilt if they go to big English Medium Colleges. Hence there is a mental block. For the last four five years counselling of parents of senior students that is class IX to XII is being done in school. College Secretary Mr. Najmul Hasan Rizvi has been addressing these parents himself and telling them about the importance of good education and also the support that the school is ready to give their ward after Class XII so that they may complete their graduation and be employable. What is planned or targeted for year 2020-2021 The main target is to provide quality education and to overcome the weaknesses or challenges observed. To start with student profiling is being done. All Class Teachers have prepared a sheet with the following heads” Name of student, marks %, attendance, healthy/weak, does home work or not, comes neatly dressed or not , brings proper bag or not, parent cooperation, employed or not, place of work. Students who are not studying, are indisciplined, have very poor attendance, not coming neatly dressed etc. will be given a final warning and if no improvement is seen their names will be struck off there and then. Names of 93 students have been struck off in session 2019-20 on the above grounds. All teachers have to see that the base of students is strong. Language and numerical skills are good. They are able to converse in English. Ms. Sabiha will be observing the primary classes and sending their report to Mrs. Sabira Taqi. Section heads, subject heads and house incharges have to perform the duties assigned to them with sincerity. More Parent Teacher Meetings will be organized. Separate meetings of weak students will be kept in which parents of weak students will be called and the College Secretary Manager and Principal will also address the parents. Teachers of Secondary and Senior Secondary Section have to work harder to give better result. In 2020-2021 Class IX will be English Medium and in 2021-2022 are first batch of English Medium will appear in high school examination. Hence teachers have to work really hard these years. Drop Out rate Drop out rate is quite low. Generally students leave on their own if they have shifted out of Lucknow or have shifted to a place which is quite far from school or on medical grounds. Few also leave if they have failed and do not want to repeat the class. They take admission else where in the next class. Names of students have also been struck off by the school on the following grounds- Poor academic performance, indiscipline and poor attendance. Names are also struck off if the child has failed for the second time in the same class. Quality of Academics The school aims at providing quality education to the students. Montessori method of teaching has been adopted for class Lower Nursery and Upper Nursery. Teachers teaching this class were given training by Mrs. Asma Zaidi Now Ms. Shamim Abidi is training the teachers. Students are learning through play way method and activities. In Primary classes teaching methodology has been changed from Teacher Centered to Student Centered Teaching. Ma’am Sabira Taqi gave training of Student Centered Teaching to the Primary Teachers. Class VI onwards is following U.P. Board Syllabus. NCERT Books are being used. Future Plans Academics – To convert Unity College Second Shift from Hindi Medium to English Medium and make teaching more effective and meaningful. School is English Medium till Class VIII now. Curriculum is being changed at Pre-Primary level. Montessori method is being followed in Class Lower Nursery from 2016-2017 and from 2017-2018 class UN is also following Montessori Method. Sports- Inter School Sports events to be organized. Extra Curricular – Plan to introduce an Annual School Magazine. For passouts- To ensure that they get admission in graduation in good colleges of Lucknow and to work on how they could achieve their goal. Our aim is to to make them employable after their graduation by providing vocational training to them and by preparing them for competitive exams.
