IMPORTANT POINTS REGARDING FIELD TRIP

IMPORTANT POINTS REGARDING FIELD TRIP

Dear Parents,

As a part of our ongoing unit, we have planned for a field trip on Thursday, 27th of September, 2018. The students have to reach Vanita Vishram ground (Opp. Mahavir Cardiac Hospital) by 7:45 am as buses will leave at sharp 8:00. Parents are requested to hand over the child to the HRT and leave immediately. This would avoid messy parking.
Also make a note, parents have to pick up their kids from VANITA VISHRAM GROUND at 1:00 pm sharp (carry the bearer card along). Request you to be on time.

Important points:
1. Students have to come in full uniform along with their I-cards.
