NEWS FROM PRIMARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL
ORIENTATION FOR NEW PARENT
An ORIENTATION SESSION FOR NEW PARENTS was conducted on Saturday, 18th June. This session was an attempt to familiarize parents with the school and its practices. This meeting highlighted the mutual expectations to be shared and provided a better understanding of our teaching and learning process.
Parents of grades IX-X were specially invited to be familiarised with the CBSE and CCE practices. It is a pity that the most parents did not deem it fit to attend. The school works extremely hard to train the students and without sufficient parental support the purpose gets defeated. In fact most parents missing the day were the ones that most needed to be there. Hope in future we can expect better response.

On the occasion of World Music Day a MUSICAL ASSEMBLY was conducted on Tuesday, 21st June.
