Special School Programmes
The class 4s and 5s put up an assembly presentation showcasing the Tusu, Kaikottikali and Ghoomar dance. They were trained for 2 weeks to perform these dances.
On the 22nd of November all students and faculty of the whole school spent 40 minutes reading together a book of their choice. The students of the junior and primary section found their own comfortable spots either in the classrooms or in the school garden to read.
Franziska Speiser, our intern from Germany, has been taking German classes in the school, as well as been conducting weekly presentations followed by quiz for classes III, IV and V. Her sessions were not only fun but also very enriching and informative.
The students of the Junior Dept. celebrated Independence Day by focusing on PEACE. Highlighting Gandhiji's philosophy, they also touched on eminent personalities whom he influenced, like the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela and even Albert Einstein and John Lennon.
Let us hope this message spreads not just to all corners of our country but also resounds around the world.

Class III Skype Activity
On Thursday morning, 30 August, our students of Class III had an interactive session on the Skype with Class III students of JG International School, Ahmedabad. It was an enriching experience for both the schools. The students of JG International asked questions about West Bengal which our students answered and explained with interesting aids and props. It was an exciting session of exchange of information between the two schools. The words of a class III student ‘what an awesome time we had’ indeed describes how much the girls enjoyed the Skype interaction.
