“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

Dear Parents,

Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather during the Onam Break! The children are back rejuvenated and full of energy. It’s great to see their happy, smiling and excited faces when they enter school. 

Every day brings new growth, new milestones, and new wonderment, but the challenges of juggling our adult lives often prevent us from fully appreciating the delicate nuances of our children’s childhood. However, instead of worrying about how many minutes you can spend with your children each day, focus on turning those minutes into memorable moments. Parents often compensate for having such a small quantity of time by scheduling “quality time.” If you find a way to make the most of every moment that you have with your kids, you will not only be a wonderful parent, but you will also be teaching your kids how to be good adults.

The past week has been a happy reunion of friends, students and teachers. This week, Wow Wednesday, ‘Yellow Day’- was a sunny, bright day at school, each person dressed in their brightest of bright yellow added a lot of sunshine to the happy ambience.

The Sunflower skit and song by the teachers was a treat for the children who watched the show with amazement and wonder. Thank you parents for keeping the WOW Wednesdays as lively as you can. It means a lot to the children.
