Pongal is a festival to thank the almighty for the overflowing harvest. The 'Mann Vaasanai' Pongal carnival at Mahatma Global Gateway has given overflowing joy and happiness to all of us. The fun and games, the folk marathon, the jolly rattinam rides and the Bullock cart ride were the highlights of the carnival. Experiencing a village fair inside an international campus was the objective of this feat. We are thankful to all who supported in giving the best to the kids. Hope it was a memorable day for all. Have a happy and prosperous Pongal!

'What could a dot on a paper do' was the question each of us had when we started preparing for the dot art in school this month. It took us to extreme happiness when the completed work was displayed and appreciated by all. If one has visited our Dot Art Fiesta, they would, for sure know the creative, cooperative and hard work put in by our students and teachers. Hats off to their teamwork! We just did cotton swab dots, pencil back dots and dots using everything which was round, but the eye capturing colours and perfect work has brought in the best fiesta ever. Thanks to parents for attending & participating in the stage programs and supporting us in the sale of art works which will be utilised for charity.

There, entered our most wanted Santa, dashing through our kids. The place was filled with Jingle Bell songs, claps and laughter. What a lot of fun each one had. Teacher’s rain deer dance was full of energy and brought out a moral on inclusiveness which bagged the children’s cheers.

Christmas is related to fun and play. Wednesdays at our school are meant for playing assembly where children play games as a team representing their houses inspite of the classes they belong to.

December Camping- the most awaited event for both kids and teachers was a grand success. We had an adventurous experience with 50 children, 10 teachers and 11 parents at Alagarkoil on 14th and 15th December. The Tiny campers made the campsite a happy place with their songs and stories. They were mini entertainers for the parents and teachers and their fellow students. After games and dinner on the 14th, mini tents were erected with the support of the kids. A campfire was arranged for them to enjoy the beauty of the night with sparkling stars to sing and dance around it. Three Kids in a tent set themselves to sleep. There came a rough wind. Huff… Puff.. Few tents started to move, walk and fly and the kids felt as though they were in a flying saucer. All kids were courageous and tackled the hazards with ease. The next morning the kids got ready for trekking. Inspire of their age, they successfully climbed up the steep hill. A magic show entertained everyone and gave the camp a happy ending. Great big thanks to the camp organizers from Sidhis Fitrain, teachers, parents and students for giving a memorable camping experience. The children returned back home with evergreen memories.
