“Together may we give our children the roots to grow and the wings to fly”                                       – Hooding S Cater

Dear Parents,

Last week we had our first Parent Teacher Meeting. Although it was the holiday weekend we still had a solid turn out of parents that came to engage and be a part of their child’s learning. It was reassuring for all to realise that there is an amazing partnership with the parents and the school. It’s not the teacher all alone pushing and challenging the student, but rather a collaboration between school and home. If there is a strong relationship between the family, the learner and the school then all parties involved are aware of the leaners goals and can work together in the same direction to achieve a common goal. We thank you all for your kind feedback and also for sharing your individual concerns. We would like to assure you that these will be worked on to the best of our ability. 

We hope you had a great break and enjoyed the short and sweet holiday, the children were excited to be part of the WOW Wednesday as soon as they returned and the colourful festive ‘Garba’ theme was a great way to celebrate seeing our little ones. The music and dance celebration was enjoyed by all and helped overcome the slight separation anxiety that they may have had after the break.

Our senior school Annual Broadway Program. TRINS has always emphasised on developing all facets of a child’s personality, by giving opportunities to develop their talents and interests along with academics. In keeping with this the senior school is ready to showcase the talent of our spirited young actors, and the brilliant scripting and direction of our students and teachers. It would be great if you could attend this show not only to encourage our young children but to also see how confident and poised our children become as they go from strength to strength.

The tickets will be available at the venue at the cost of 350/- or 500/-. Donor cards are also available in case you cannot make it for the show. The proceeds of this ticketed show will go to the Regional Cancer Centre, Trivandrum and Ward No 9 of General Hospital, Trivandrum. The show is on 12th October Saturday from 5:00pm to 8:00 pm. Venue- Tagore Theatre. Vellayambalam.
