VISIT TO THE OLD AGE HOME
Christmas at Pre-Primary was celebrated in a very special way. Besides celebrating Christmas with Santa at school, kids visited the old age home on Tuesday 30th December near Loyala college. Here they enjoyed and experienced the true joy of sharing and caring. It was a love-filled experience for the kids to visit so many grandmothers and grandfathers. Children performed a dance, sang some songs, and returned to school with loads of love and blessings from them.
Thank you parents once again for generously donating towards this cause. We had a huge collection to share with the inmates.
