Dr. Harish Shetty Talk
Dr. Harish Shetty, imminent psychiatrist, was at the School on 14th December 2013. He was received by Ms. Julie Jayson and Mr. Suresh Mahadevan, Treasurer, PTA and escorted to the Auditorium where he addressed a large number of parents on the subject of academic performance. Dr. Shetty, in his inimitable style drove home some very important points about how children concentrate.

With a simple formula, Dr. Shetty illustrated how concentration and fear were inversely proportionate.

Concentration/Fear= Performance (The greater the fear, the lesser the concentration)

So parents were advised to reduce anxiety and to help children study without fear of result, to enhance performance.

Another useful tip from the esteemed doctor was about recognizing a child's concentration style. Contrary to our belief that a child can concentrate only while sitting at a table and in a quiet and calm environment, some children have been found to concentrate better while listening to music or in a noisy background or in a lying down position. Some children were found to concentrate better in the presence of their parents, yet others just couldn't focus in their parents' presence.

Parents were, therefore, advised to figure out their child's/children's concentration style to facilitate the process of imbibing and assimilating information.

The talk ended with a question-answer session where the good doctor addressed various queries that the parents had about their children's academic performance and emotional well-being.
