Dear Parents,

Whoa !!! Fasten your seat belts parents as our second literary event ‘Event recount’ is around the corner, which is on 12th of March.

The purpose of this special event is to give you an insight into how the children are able to recount the events confidently.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and support to make this a very valuable and worthwhile experience for you and your child. We look forward to your presence to encourage the children as well as to make the literary event a grand success.
