  • The annual Grade 4 and 5 Sleepover was another huge success - 120 students, 30 teachers. Students circulated through 10 challenging and fun activities, consumed a large dinner prepared by our amazing kitchen staff and then, eventually, went to sleep in five classrooms. This fun tradition ensures that all Grade 4 students have slept away from home at least once prior to their two-night camp trip in December.

  • In their exploration of the Indus Valley civilization, Grade 5 students study archaeology to discover how we learn about the past. They engaged in a simulated archaeological dig on the school terrace and unearthed artifacts that needed to be cleaned, examined and categorized. Inferences about the lifestyle of the "civilization" were then made.

  • Some glimpses from Hindi Divas celebrations in Primary on September 14. As always, it was a glorious confluence of colour, joy, singing and, most importantly, articulate use of the language.  An interactive assembly had students engaged in a variety of creative ways to practice Hindi.

  • Kindergarten parents enjoyed the annual Block Building workshop on Saturday - through building themselves, parents learn the complexity of this program. "I never imagined it would be so challenging" was heard from many and also "All adults should have this experience."

  • We went into the spring break at Primary School, reliving memories from our Arts Evening. The theme  this year was Balance, and you can see how our students incorporated their ideas into their artwork and performances in theatre, music, tabla, kathak and capoeira throughout the evening. Parents joined students in creating an installation evoking balance using recycled materials. In addition, parents were able to see their children's flourishing garden on the terrace and understand the excitement about harvesting and consuming their produce.
