“Success is a journey, not a destination.

 The doing is often more important than the outcome.” – Arthur Ashe.

Dear Parents,

Confidence is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their child. Self-confidence comes from a sense of competence. A confident child needs a positive and realistic perception of his or her abilities. This arises out of achievements, great and small. Your encouraging words can help develop this confidence, especially when you refer to your child’s specific efforts or abilities.

From taking their first steps to learning how to read, children gain self-confidence as they master new skills. This gives them the courage to continue to explore and expand their abilities. As you encourage their independence, you may also need to help them talk through their frustrations and fears. As you see them express interest in trying something new, teach them strategies that will help them master the skill. They will develop confidence as they practice these new tasks and recognize their progress.

Our first Broadway is one such step to help build this in our children and dear parents we need your whole hearted support to help make this event a grand success.

The Early Years Broadway is a collaborative event. We are excited to have all 5 Early Years schools which come under the TRINS umbrella coordinating and jointly putting up a show. We are truly excited to see all our children on stage starting right from the infants. 

We request you to please inform all your friends and family to attend the first ever ‘Early Years- TRINS Broadway’. Entry passes will be available at school from next week. Kindly do let us know how many passes you will be needing, this will help plan logistics.

You could send a message on the APP to us with number of passes to be reserved for you and family- The cost of each pass is Rs 500/-

The proceeds of the event will be donated to a social service cause as is the tradition at TRINS. Details of the beneficiaries will be shared shortly.

SAVE THE DATE- 16th November 2019

Logistics and planning is complex and will require the minutest detail to be taken care of. We have a run through at the venue two days prior and then the final day. For this we have a meeting on the 16th of November to appraise you of each detail and request at least one parent of each child to mandatory attend.
