In the process, students honed their organizational and research skills and developed better communication with their peers.
The students of Grades V-VII displayed their acting prowess through the THEATRE PRESENTATION on 31st January and 7th February. They presented ‘Navrasas’—the nine emotions as part of their presentations. In this context they presented declamation, displayed different levels of the emotion through short plays and dances. The audience was treated to performances from a wide range of styles that made them enjoy every bit of the act.
Visiting a POST OFFICE was something out-of-the-ordinary for the students of Grade III on Wednesday, 31st January. They visited the general Post Office, Secunderabad. They were taken around to see how the letters are collected and stamped. They were also educated on how postal banks are different from other commercial banks. They were taken to the accounts department, where they learnt how money is collected and stored. The warmth and eagerness with which the Post Office people welcomed the children was amazing. We can’t thank them enough!
CREATIVITY IS AS IMPORTANT AS LITERACY

ART GALLERY DISPLAY
An ART AND CRAFT exhibition was held on Saturday, 3rd February. This exhibition was an opportunity for the students to display their creative side, either through paint, craft, needle work or drawing etc. Articles made by students of Grades 1 to 10 were on display. Parents visited the exhibition and were impressed with their children’s work. We found it just as important to showcase the talent and brilliance of our Art and Craft Teachers. Hence their works too were on display including some amazing installations and sculptures.
