It took lots of effort, redesigning, and numerous trials and errors, before they got results and had their aims fulfilled.Now they are all set to showcase their learning and their efforts.

We all cordially invite you to the Force and Motion Exhibition, which is scheduled on 22nd December, 7:45am-9:30am, in Grade 6 wing. You all are requested to come and motivate our young learners.
