  • 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.

  • In Grades 4 and 5, our parents joined in, too, creating artwork (and fun) with their children
  • Presenting rhythm in visual form could be seen as a challenging exercise by many but, as you can see, our students have more than risen to the occasion and have managed to capture the theme of the evening brilliantly. Parents were impressed by the young artists' explanations of their work.
  • Grade 3, 4 and 5 Tabla & Kathak performances used the 16 basic raags to create an experience that left everyone wanting for more, showing focus, discipline and creativity.
  • Our Capoeira performances were a wonderful confluence of music, acrobatics, movement, coordination and energy, with students across grades demonstrating all the fluidity and flexibility that has been imbued through capoeira.
  • Our Arts Evening theme this year was Rhythm. And nowhere else was it better demonstrated than in our Theatre performances where students developed their own rhythms using everyday household objects and their bodies - in some cases, the rhythmic beat told a story but all gave us glimpses into children's experiences with the world. The synchronicity, complexity and precision to maintain the beats was impressive. They sang English, Hindi and Marathi songs with complex rhythm and beats.
  • We celebrated Arts Evening on March 22nd this year. And what an evening it was. Filled with cartwheels and singing and dancing and drawing and even a little dabbing, it was a wonderful showcase of all the multi-faceted talents our students are honing in the visual and performing arts.
