Dear Parents, sometimes we ourselves are left breathless reading up the compilation of all that we manage to pack in, in a fortnight.

Hope you do spare more than a glance at our newsletter and read through the content put together by us with great effort and zeal.

After all we have been in your mail box like clockwork every fortnight for the past more than 4 years !!!!

Please do spare a few moments to set or check your child’s school bag each evening. The bag has to be set as per the time table and should not contain unnecessary books. Very heavy bags continue to be a problem as children carry un-required books regularly without your supervision.

Warm Regards
