Ensure effective participation of all stakeholders, especially parents and teachers in the smooth running of the institution and attaining the objectives of the institution. Aim of the association is to have constant contact with the parents and elicit their cooperation in moulding the students as responsible citizens to meet the challenges of the time. Education conceived in this sense is a collaborative effort between the teachers, students, parents and institutions. Therefore to achieve this aim the cooperation of the parents with the teachers and the institution is very necessary. But in the present educational setup there is a wide gap between teachers and parents. In order to bridge this gap and create close ties between them for the welfare of the students, Govt. Polytechnic College, Vandiperiyar, sponsors the Parent Teachers Association.

The Scheme when implemented would be a great boost to the academic performance of the institution. The project is all the more important because it would be a helping hand to the economically and socially backward classes of the society as most of the students in this institution come from rural areas.
Students who are backward in their academic activities are to be found out and they should be given special care and attention to achieve their goal .We have already made some efforts in helping the students who are backward in their studies. But we could not achieve the expected target. That is why it is essential to take some more pain and time for the same .
