  • Our Girls Soccer Team played the Soccer Tournament at Singapore International School a couple of weeks ago, reaching the semi finals before narrowly losing out to Dhirubhai Ambani International School. It was an amazing experience watching our students put in the hard yards. Here's wishing them all the very best for the next tournament too.
  • It brings us great joy to report that our Under-19 boys team won the OIS Copa Cup Soccer Tournament last month with one of our students also winning the Highest Goal Scorer Award. Our Under-16 team also performed very well in the tournament, even winning an award for Outstanding Sportsmanship, before losing in the semi-finals to our Under-19 team. Our girls team too performed very well, narrowly losing in the group stages.

  • Grade 5 students visited Kutch last month to support their Social Studies curriculum. The visit to the archaeological site at Dholavira helped them put context to their research on the Hrappan civilization of the Indus Valley.  At Khamir in Bhuj, they learned crafts that provide a livelihood for Kutchi people - block printing, tie and dye, embroidery, plastic upcycled for weaving. They also learned how to "pug" mud in order to make bricks and mud daub walls.  A visit to two schools in the salt pan area gave them an opportunity to interact with students of very different backgrounds.  Highlights included the overnight train journeys and playing on the salt of the Rann of Kutch with not one tourist in sight.  In all workshops and discussions, the facilitators were highly impressed by our students' prior knowledge, insightful questions and strong use of both receptive and expressive Hindi.
