Newsletter - September 2017
September marks the end of the monsoon season and the beginning of so many festivities.
We have had a very wet and humid August. The children have had to stay in on many mornings and are now looking forward to more time in the gardens. The planting season will begin soon and the teachers are planning projects to involve the children in gardening activities. We will grow vegetables for the winter like lettuce, spinach, carrots, radish and limes in the small garden area at the back.
Parents who would like to help with the gardens are most welcome.

||Observation of children at work.
Observing the children at work gives parents an insight into the routine of the class each morning. You can see your child from an adjacent class without him being aware of your presence and you also get to observe the functioning of the whole class. Individual notes will be sent to you regarding timings.
