Early Years

The capacity of young people to persevere, even under the most adverse conditions, never ceases to amaze me. -Jane-fonda.
We began our online learning for Early Years with anxious teachers, who suddenly found themselves in an odd situation, maybe instructing a bit more than facilitating the hands on learning through stories, songs and play that formed the backbone of our learning-teaching strategies. The little learners put us at ease by being so excited to meet and greet their friends and us, the tiny giggles and shy smiles did the magic. We were on our journey to blended learning.
August was the month for a variety of celebrations and we, being the enthusiastic little learners, celebrated each one with the same zeal. From the beautiful Friendship Day cards being exchanged virtually to create a bonding of friendship to dressing up as National leader or National symbol, to sculpting Ganapati using 'atta' or play dough it was fun, significant, made connections and created a memory to add to our life.Read More

From Principal's Desk

I am pleased to update you on our school's continuing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our teachers and students are making the best use of the learning opportunities provided by the online environment. We have also made use of the online environment to connect with our parents through a series of webinars. The IB has introduced changes in the assessment structure to accommodate the present global situation and ease the pressure on our May 2021 batch of DP students.

Meanwhile we have been taking a number of precautionary measures as per government directives to make our campus a safe and healthy place in preparation to receive our students when the school reopens physically. We will continue to monitor and adapt our procedure in line with the latest updates and in the best way possible.
