  • By taking note of the students performing below average and conducting special classes for them but not making them realize it as a punishment. Instead of putting extra pressure on young brains; staffs should understand their problems and help them to recover it.

  • Arranging various seminars regarding the career guidance. Inviting different guest specialists in these seminars can be a life-changing moment for many students .
  • Teach students that its perfect to commit a mistake. A mistake can cause them million but the lesson learned from them can bring back the billions.
  • Teach them the importance of moral values. Planting the seed of moral values will help them to grow in a positive aspect. It will help them to judge what is wrong and what is right for them. Make them understand that any toxic substance (Drugs, pills, injections, steroids) consumption is costly and dangerous to health. The problem with today's educational system is that it is giving only bookish knowledge which is limited whereas strong morals values builts students character.
  • This is indeed sad that at a very young age students and little kids are losing their childhood. Try to organize parents-teachers meetings as per your school's manuals but do help parents to realize that issues. Todays's kids are actively growing kids who have facilities of fast internet access. Due to which kids spend most of their time watching Youtube videos and their social media accounts. The online web is an excellent tool to shape the future or access the valuable information. But there are two flip sides to every coin. Therefore, parents must take care of their little kids about what they are learning from the web.
  • Music, Dance, Art, sports are the marvelous stress buster and the big career in the coming time. Organising functions correlated to these kinds of talents will surely bring glory to school and parents.
  • Teach students about the significance of nature protection. Describe them about the worse effect of plastic on the environment. That will help the future generation to combat Global warming.
  • A students must learn how to respect elders, aged people, ladies, and the opposite sex. Without making this point clear to them; we could not create a positive state for the coming generation.

These are the few duties of the school principal which need to be taken into consideration by every school administration.
