Assembly - Importance Of Discipline

The first assembly after the Summer Vacation was conducted by the students of class 2 A. The tiny tots taught us a wonderful lesson on the importance of Discipline through colourful banners and poem recitation. Some of the primary students also presented a mime on the importance of saving the Environment. Deforestation should stopped and trees should be planted, not only to enjoy the greenery around but also to purify the air. Every individual to contribute towards saving the environment rather than expecting someone else to do it for us.

Circle Time - Happy Father's Day

Every child is like a bud in the hands of a hard working gardener. A gardener knows when to till the soil, when to nip the stems for the better growth of the plants. Likewise every father is the protective shield - ‘the hard hand with a soft heart’.

Children expressed their love for their fathers by making cards as the circle time activity on 11th June 2018. Colourful papers, beautiful designs and the love embellished crayons filled the class with joy, excitement and adoration for their fathers.

At times you are strict...

At times you are the magician...

At times you are a hard taskmaster....

But, at the end of the day you are the one for whom every son and every daughter works hard for.
