The Early Years learners worked on their social skills by learning to show gratitude towards all the people who cared for them, celebrating Teachers' Day and understanding that their parents, grandparents are their first 'Guru' and remembered to wish them. They made beautiful cards for the teachers to thank them too.
The next week, saw them learning to understand the healthy diet and how to eat fun food a little less than the fruits and the vegetables. They made their own plate of fruits, vegetables, milk, curd, cereals and some chocolates, ice-cream too. Some felt water should also be a part of the balanced diet!

To appreciate creativity and the contribution of the renowned Engineer, Bharat Ratna awardee, Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, we celebrated Engineer's Day. The students love building/ creating things with the objects around them. They had fun finding solutions to problems posed by the teachers and also enjoyed free play time to construct from their imagination. Read More
