Department of Kindergarten

Co-Ordinator's Message

Everyone should act up to the motto: Ever help never hurt. Every educated person should engage himself or herself in selfless service to society with humility and a pure heart. All academic distinctions or even observance of spiritual practices are of no use if there is no love in the heart. Help rendered, however small, if it comes from the deeper urges of service dwelling in the heart is as good as the offer of life itself.

Our KG Department is going to emphasize this Theme for this academic year through various activities in the school.

The first step was started with this ”Thirsty fox” story

” A hungry fox saw a bunch of grapes.
He jumped and jumped but could not get it.
Squirrel wanted to help the fox.
He plucked some grapes and dropped it.
Fox ate the grapes and thanked the squirrel.
 “

Which was beautifully narrated with the model during our assembly by our KG children about how the squirrel helped the fox.
