Attendance taking at school is now easy with Vawsum

Regular attendance is an important factor in a student’s achievement at school and helps prepare them for the world of work. Students not in school have fewer opportunities to learn the material that enables them to succeed in their classes.

  • Students who eventually drop out of school are absent more often than other students beginning as early as the first grade.
  • Students with high attendance rates score higher on achievement tests than those students who are frequently absent.
  • High attendance rates are indicators of effective schools.

With Vawsum –

  • Parents can easily monitor children’s attendance

Rainy day at School and Vawsum in it

There are many themes that are taken up and celebrated in schools in order to blend the concepts taught in the classrooms with practical experiences. Such moments are essential for the physical, mental and emotional growth of children.  The pre-primary section of one school wanted to do the same and hence, celebrated Rainy Day.

The day was celebrated with great vigor and enthusiasm. Children were very excited about the idea of getting wet in the rain. Teachers created awareness among the children about the day. The teacher demonstrated the water cycle to the children. They were informed about: How clouds were formed? How it rains? After the explanation, evaluations were conducted and children answered them enthusiastically. Tiny toddlers danced to the tunes of the teacher.  Rain Dance Activity was held to experience the real feel of getting wet in the rain and dancing and singing and enjoying the moment to its core.

Children also had a paper boat making take away activity on this day. They went home with great excitement and memories of the day.

All of the fun was just not lost, the memories were captured in the form of pictures taken by teachers and shared on the Vawsum application used by the school. Through which even the parents could experience the joy the child had in school.

School activities could never have been this exciting for parents, isn’t it?

Being a teacher is not an easy job.

Teaching is a priceless profession. But a teacher too has their own areas of liking. In recent times, most teachers have taken their liking to VAWSUM as far as school works are concerned.

This helps in planning educational trips or anything in which preference/choice making is concerned. This engages a parent with the decision making as far as the activities of the student are concerned and thus helping the teachers as well.

They bring with them beautiful gifts. Kids love celebrating their birthday. But what should someone do, when his/her birthday falls on a weekday?
It so happened that Mr. Singh’s son’s birthday came off on last Monday. He wanted him not to go to school as it was a very special day but his child was in love with his schools. So plans were changed and the party was rescheduled for the evening. Mr. Singh then goes to work as he didn’t want to waste a day. And what happened next left Mr.Singh in awe. At work, he receives a push notification on his mobile phone. As he checks the notification, he gets the surprise of his life. He sees his son’s photo with all smiles cutting the birthday cake with his teachers and friends. He was left in tears.

But how did this happen?

A Healthy atmosphere makes Healthy student.

All over the world kids are introduced to new sports every day. Their bodies are asked to do things in all different directions, different speeds, different ranges and different planes. In order to be successful in any sport, children first need to develop an athletic foundation and a baseline of physical fitness upon which they can excel in the sport.

Kids are essentially thrown into sports without any preparation, and left to figure it out on their own. Invariably the more physically gifted rises to the top and the rest get left behind. The end result is that so many children experience failure, and quickly quit their sport (or want to quit) before they can learn invaluable lessons like work ethic, teamwork and the satisfaction of achievement. An athletic foundation and a base level of physical fitness are so important for kids in order to avoid this failure.

Playing any sport requires certain physical and mental abilities, and these can be better developed independently from the sport itself. That’s where VAWSUM comes in. Before practicing and competing in any sport, children need to learn balance, rhythm, timing, motor control of their arms and legs, how to run properly, jump properly, change direction, good diet and so much more. Vawsum helps parents to stay connected with his/her child in the real-time wherein he/she would get to know exactly what the child is eating and how much is the child practicing. One can do this easily with the help of videos, photos, and messages. The teacher can also do one on one conversation with the parent and this would surely help when a student is not doing to his/her potential. This, thus, keeps the parent informed about what the child is doing and each parent can then push the child that extra notch if required. This would then help the child attain SUCCESS and thus, enhancing the growth of the child.

So we can see, that, VAWSUM helps in creating an atmosphere that fosters the healthy growth of the child.

Nitty Gritty Moments of a kid

Dealing with naughty behavior depends on the behavior and the child. You’ll find this varies a lot culturally, and what happens and works/doesn’t work in some cultures will be different from others. In most English-speaking countries pupils who exhibit particularly naughty behavior are usually shipped up the chain of command, with a
vice-principal/head teacher/assistant headmaster dealing with the case. In some schools, they may also be referred to school counselors.

In many Asian countries, the homeroom teachers are generally the ones who deal with students who have attitude problems and exhibit consistently naughty behavior. So, as a classroom teacher, you have to bear in mind that how things work practically may vary a lot if you’re posing this question to people from around the world.

Schools where only one teacher is allotted in each class,  it is not possible for that particular teacher to manage the whole class and correct each student when their doings are wrong.

Some nitty and gritty activities which the child does are very much amusing to see as there is innocence filled in it. These GOLDEN MOMENTS parents miss while they are at office or at home. To reduce this barrier our dedicated application VAWSUM is very much unique and one of a kind product. Our applications sole purpose is to deal with
parent-teacher engagement. The benefits of such a product are unimaginable. Listed down are some of the major functionalities offered by VAWSUM:-
