The winter lunch menu will continue for January and February (Menu attached).

Please note, all teaching will begin promptly at 10am. Please make every effort to ensure your child is in school on time. Punctuality is an important factor in the discipline of the school. Children who come late to school are usually embarrassed to enter a class that is already in function.

We also request you to encourage your child to walk into school on his own as an indirect preparation for larger environments they will move to.

Admissions to larger schools
The admission process to mainstream schools are in progress. We wish all families who have applied to other schools the very best.
In the event that children are not successful in securing a place at these schools at the age of 3+, we would like to assure you that we are happy to keep your children at the magic years for another year. We provide an environment where children are challenged and is appropriate to differing ages and abilities.
Please let us know in writing if your child will move to another school. This will help us decide how many new children can be admitted to the magic years.

Projects
Our projects this month will feature countries in the world with snow and icy conditions; focusing on the people, vegetation and animals that live there.
We will also have projects for Republic Day and celebrate Basant Panchami when its gets warmer.

School Fees
The school fees invoice for the new term ie January to March and the the calendar for January-June 2018 will be sent as separate attachments with this email. Please ensure all fees are paid by the 24th of January 2018. Late fees cause great inconvenience to the administrative office.

Last term, despite several written reminders, a large number of parents failed to pay the fees on time.
As of this year, a penalty of Rs 500 will be imposed on late payments to cover additional administrative time spent processing late dues.

A number of children who have admission to bigger schools will leave at the end of March. If a child leaves before the end of term, he will still have to pay the term fee as our new intake of children is in April 2018.

Please inform the school in writing a month before your child is withdrawn so your deposit money can be returned to you. Deposit refunds will be made by cheque only.

Security Passes
Parents and caretakers must wear or show the child’s security pass when entering and picking up children from the school. Some parents show annoyance when the security guard asks to see the pass, please note that this rule is meant for the absolute safety of the child and must not be taken lightly.

Contacting us
