Dear parents,

A warm welcome to the new academic session. I hope that the year will be full of excitement and learning with fun.The first day of school was full of mixed emotions,Kids were happy to be with new friends with a new class, also shy to open up and somewhere scared about the change they are facing. We tried our best to make the kids comfortable to the new environment. They enjoyed the ice-breaking activity pass the ball where they had to throw the ball at someone and they had to introduce themselves. They also enjoyed free play and some art activities followed by readalouds. They had a tiring day but they had fun too. Here are a few glimpses of the same.

Regards,

Payal Jain
