“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller
What an amazing week this has been for the children- A field trip, Halloween celebrations, dance and music and a whole lot of fun stuff being done in school for them to enjoy their learning. This has had almost all of the children including the infants say in their own special way- ‘Let’s go to TRINS’.
Parents when we hear from you how excited each child is to come to school in the morning, it reiterates our belief that we are here for them and wish to make their early years a memorable part of their lifelong learning journey. The trips, events and activities planned for them help them build on their learning and nowhere does it take away from the academic focus. In fact ‘Learn by doing’ strengthens this in children.
The field trip to the main school for the ‘Food Fair’ was exciting- being empowered with spending on things or our choice helped children realize the value of money. There were an array of items to pick from and each child enjoyed choosing and buying things that appealed to them. They were also excited to be at the main school campus, a place that K2 will soon be part of.
The next BIG event on our calendar- ‘The TRINS Broadway- Early Years’
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.
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 mandatorily attend.
Hope you have all responded to the personal call being made by – Charutha, our new Admissions Executive

Halloween Celebrations at the centre was a ‘Boo-tiful’ event- The art and craft done related to the theme was creatively done by all and the display around was awesome. The children dressed in their ‘spookiest best’, the teachers’ skit on the ‘Good Witches’ and the attempted ‘Ramp Walk’ by the children added to a morning of enthusiasm and pleasantries. The lollipop as the ‘treat’ was of course the most loved part of the day.
WOW Wednesday – November 6th “STRIPES DAY” – Horizontal, vertical or even diagonal any stripes will do. Do send your child dressed in the theme –please do send in an object for Show and Tell related to the theme.

SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT
We had a great Diwali party this Wednesday where we shared all the goodies that were sent from home . We learnt that sharing our happy moments with our friends is one of the main things about festivals.
We also went on a field trip to our main school. We had a great time travelling together in our school bus and singing songs. We had a great experience trying to buy eatables of our choice and it was great fun to take decisions independently.
We celebrated Halloween in our school and had lots of fun.
UNIT OF INQUIRY
We started a new topic, Monsoon Season. We discussed about the rainy day sky and drew our version of a rainy day.
