Open House which was hosted on 25th January at School was a spectacular event.The structure was built on children’s sense of responsibility and accountability for their own learning, and it helped them to hone their understanding of what it means to meet the learning targets. The teachers held discussions with the children to find out what experiences they have had with the topic and what they already know about it. The children represented their experiences and showed great understanding of all important elements of the curriculum. Parents were encouraged to ask questions to the children about the topic and to share any relevant expertise. Each child was involved in representing what he or she is learning, and each child worked on his or her own level in terms of basic skills. It was certainly a joyous display of teamwork, cooperation, organisation as children spoke clearly and confidently in front of the audience.
The event was designed with the concept of re-creating a ‘feel’ of a traditional Kannada village fair for the children and their parents to experience.
Children excitedly rushed over towards the traditional kitchen set-up and even tried their hands at grinding the ‘ragi’ in a ‘chakli’; sieving the flour and making the ‘rotis’. Various rustic games were organized based on the popular ones which are played in villages such as ‘Pagade’ and ‘chowkabara’. Taking turns at milking a live cow added to the experience as well.
A whole range of creative art-activity such as making-a-tribal-face-mask, Kite-painting and Rangolis kept everybody happy and busy. Toddlers and infants were equally enthusiastic as they tried-on traditional attires from the dress-up-corner. The Bangle-lady engaged most of the children with free bangles while the Parrot reader turned out to be a major attraction for both parents and children as they visited the stall for a session. Children could not hide their amazement as they witnessed a live, trained parrot taking part in the act. The ‘Panja Contest’ for the fathers towards the end was a major hit as well. The event wrapped up with a beautiful ‘Dandiya’ performance with all children and their parents rocking on the dance floor.
19th October was our Culmination Day and parents were invited to school to view the work done by their children.
They were led by the children and taken through the learning domains. Our children were thrilled to showcase their learning and even more excited were the parents to listen to them. The highlight of the day was the energetic performance of our children’s dance and skit.
Grandparents ‘Day was celebrated with many eager grandparents coming to school along with their grandchildren and taking part in exciting activities that were lined up for them. Children made cards, badges and medals for their grandparents and expressed their love for them in many ways.
The awesome adventure began with little infants and toddlers entering the world of Egypt.
The children were enticed into the mazes ,puzzles , treasure hunt and more, so were the parents who were able to relive their childhood .It was an amazing experience for the children as well as parents.
“I love Bambi” said Nyesha, student of K1.
Yes! Everybody just loved our movie night “Bambi”. It was so relaxing and comfortable with friends and family around.
Munching the freshly popped corn in the cool fresh breeze was just cherry on the top.
“Movie night once more!”- Every child’s demand. Simply fun!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa was here!!!! What an amazing evening we had at VIVERO, RMZ Ecoworld on 16th of December. Mums, Dads and the lovely children enjoyed all the treats along with the great fun at bouncy castle and the train ride. What else could you ask for when you get presents from Santa. Nobody wanted this evening to end. Super fun time for all.
