‘Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.’

Mahatma Gandhi

Dear Parents,

This happiness is what we experienced, last Saturday a mix of two very special days- Mommies day and Friendship day, both celebrate the bond of love and affection that is everlasting. We at school were extremely happy to celebrate this in such an awesome way.

The testimonials from some of our lovely mums spoke volumes about what we do best and love doing. Thank you parents for the faith and support. Mom and Baby Yoga was great fun and enjoyed by all. The children enjoyed the cooking activity where they made a healthy snack- ‘Banana Dream slices’. They were also happy doing the fun dances and rhymes together with their friends.

The two presentations were crisp and informative especially the one by Dr Femitha Shifas- MD Paediatrics, DM Neonatology Consultant Department of Neonatology KIMS on ‘Early Positive Brain Experiences. We hope to invite her in future for many such interesting sessions.

The art and craft activity done together by the mums and children showed off their creative skills and ended the day on a colourful note. Thank you mums for bringing in your friends along, we hope they had as much fun as we did.

We are pleased to inform you that Ms Sini Regi Thomas-MA,Med,DSE-  Head of Department of Special Needs from our main school has visited our classes to do an informal assessment of all our children. This will help identify any child with special needs. Her assessment will be done periodically and early intervention will surely help our children going further. We really appreciate her taking the time out of her busy schedule to spend some quality time in our classes. We will speak to the parents individually once we identify any child who needs support. 

See you tomorrow at our – ‘First Parent Teacher Meeting’5th October 2019.  Timing have been sent individually to parents for 10 minute time slots each. If you feel you would need to spend more time with the teacher, kindly make an appointment for an alternative day and time.

Please let us know if your child will not be part of the show as we need to plan the performances and order the costumes. Kindly ensure that you don’t miss the same unless absolutely necessary
