Highlights of the Fortnight:
A whole year gone by, here we are sharing the last fortnight that we have spent with your children. Thank you so much for being part of all the endeavours throughout the year. We indeed value all your partnership this year which has made a lot of experiences worthwhile.
We have spent the last few days closing the loop for the whole year through revisiting all the beacons through different languages of learning. We reflected upon the year gone by and saw that we have indeed changed and grown in our own ways through the ‘Changed I Have’ format. Here we were able to do this with peer and teacher feedback also.
The children have been able to pick their most memorable moments of the year through photographs. This they have put into a PPT to share in the SLC. Equal amount of work has gone into clocking the year in their CV’s and the evidence files that show their academic growth. Please do applaud them when they share it all with you.
We culminated our doing good conglom in different groups and grade 6 buddies lead the conglom. They spun a yarn in the form of a story that had the doing good component in it. Finally we took away that ‘Doing Good’ is not only when we come to school or when we are associated with some NGOs but it lies in the smallest of the deeds that we do. Please do encourage them during summer vacations to continue doing Good.
This year, for the Student Led Conference (SLC), the students will be showing their year long journey through the following –
- Changed I Have
- Curriculum Vitae
The SLC time is sacred and it is important for you to give your undivided attention to your child for this. Do make sure you keep your mobiles switched off and discourage any outside interruptions. Your child will be sharing her journey through the year, what they have done, what she enjoyed the most, as well as how she has grown through the year. It would be wonderful if you add a layer to the whole thing by asking questions that help your child open up and share confidently rather than interrogating her about what she has or hasn’t done.
The SLC is to be done on 17th April, at home. Do put a time aside for the same. Please fill in the feedback form and send it back to us on the 18th.
Once again thank you all for taking time out of your busy schedules and attend the Potluck. The support you all provided for the entire year made our journey smooth and memorable. . Now we say adieu, with the consolace that we will meet soon.
Read the last update of the year and enjoy……
The potluck: It was celebration time with some good food, masti and dance and thanks parents for making the day great!
Coffee At Riverside: We had a wonderful Coffee with Major Subedar Mohammed Illyas who started his life as an ordinary soldier from Srinagar and through determination and vision became an instructor of Adventure sports in the Indian Army and headed Himalayan expedition successfully. We were all enthralled by his war stories and inspired by his pride in serving the country.
