Annual Exhibition
Annual Exhibition was held on 1st and 2nd February 2013. Ms. Tapati Gupta ex. President of Montessori Association inaugurated the exhibition. Parents were happy with the apparatus display and also appreciated the fact that the method of teaching using apparatus was explained in detail.
The project display on ‘Types of Houses’ included three dimensional displays using a variety of materials and some two dimensional displays on soft boards. Children had fun working on different kinds of houses through activities such as Sand work, Fingertip Printing and Vegetable Printing.
Grandparents’ Day
Grandparents’ Day was observed on 18th December 2012, not only to  show respect to grandparents, but also to acknowledge their importance in society as they help to cement bonds between generations and infuse family values. Our endeavour was to help strengthen relationships between grandparents and their doting grandchildren.
Safety on the road
As an extension of the topic Land transport, there was an activity ‘Safety on the road‘. A Zebra Crossing was created for this using a plastic sheet . Through role play and games children were made to understand the importance of being safe on the road. Children had fun as they loved the game which was the test to see if the concept was clear!
Counseling Session
On 31st August, Dr. Rochita Mukerjee  conducted a workshop on ‘Helping teachers identify Special children’ and ‘Building self esteem in children’. The Auxiliary staff were also counseled on being  sensitive to the emotional needs of the child.
Teachers' Day
Teachers’ Day was celebrated on 5th September and keeping in mind the topic of the week, which was flowers, we had an activity  ‘I am a flower in my teacher’s garden’.  There was an interactive programme, with kids and teachers performing for one another. The essence of the programme was to help the children wish their teachers on this special day and thank them for their love and support. The song ‘Teachers you are special' sung by the children made them feel very special.
