Dear parents,

We are planning for one day picnic on 18th October, 2018 (Thursday). We are seeking for a place(farm house) which is nearby (less travelling time {max one hour of travelling}) and can accommodate 180 students and 20 adults with sufficient shade.

For the said purpose, we are looking for any parent to volunteer to offer their farm house. We would be grateful if any parent could refer a place which belongs to them/ their friend or relative.

You can inform us  about the same latest by 8th October (Monday).

You can acknowledge us by sending a DD to your ward’s HRT.

Regards,

Jr.KG Team.

Glimpses of first few days

Glimpses of first few days

Dear parents,

Theeeeeeeey’re back — those first few days of school where teachers are all exhilarated about being in the class to roll out the red carpet for the little angels.

The first few days have been thrilling and fun with the kiddos. Starting from settling them to listening to their innocent and humorous talk has been a sweet experience. It has been an eventful week for the children. It all started with a beautiful welcome where children were given colored badges representing their section as a part of identification.

 

The teachers warmly welcomed the students with a wide smile, role modelled all the routines and procedures and acquainted them with directions to washroom, play areas and their classes. They were also guided about showing reverence towards their peers and adults and things around; keeping the plates gently in the trolley after lunch; keeping their bags and bottles at the allocated areas.

 

The students also embraced read alouds and various interesting rhymes. They were guided to their buses with the teachers as well as the class didis. As it is truly said, “Time flies away when you’re having fun!”, and it passed by too quickly. The first two weeks were a delightful experience with the little ones.

 

Sharing a few glimpses of the days gone by.

With gratitude,

Jr.KG Team
