It is not necessary for students to bring sweets to school on their birthday. However it is to be remembered that sweets with plastic wrappers are not to be sent to school. During the next academic year if parents send sweets with plastic wrappers, the sweets will be sent back.
We have laid particular emphasis on group activities, interaction between the students and on cleanliness. The importance of wide reading and language improvement has to be constantly kept in mind in the context of the CBSE syllabus and for improving communication skills. Please encourage students to read a number of books during the holidays instead of spending their time in front of the Television, Computer or play station.
I would like to express my thanks to all the parents for their encouragement and support in all the school activities.
Interacting with our parents has been a gratifying experience for me during the academic year.
With regards and best wishes.
Mrs. Susan Varghese Cherian
