Message from the Principal
Dear Parents, With this Term coming to an end, we have also inched closer to the end of a pleasant winter season. The months of January, February and March have seen our students trying out a few new things. This includes getting the first-hand taste of how an auction works, through Bidding Buddies, presenting our long-term project 'U with Ukraine?' at Design for Change presentation at KHDA and then in Kiev(Ukraine), finding new ways to celebrate subjects like English and Math through Super Learning Weeks, held in the last weeks of January and February respectively. It is expected that the enthusiasm and zeal that the school usually remains abuzz with, will transfer to your homes when our children spend the spring break with you, giving you a hard time answering their questions and solving their problems with them. They will also be sincerely involved in preparing themselves for The Super Talented Applelite contest to be held in May' 18 and what's more: we are very excited to see the vehicles the students will be designing in order to participate in 'My Wonder Vehicle' contest which will see some amazing racing contests of innovative vehicles designed by our students of FS through Year 9, during Super Learning Week of Science in the last week of April. So, here's wishing you all the best for all the adventures ahead! Warm Regards, Ms. Pranjala Principal.

Year 1 and 2 Educational Trip @ Kidzania 8th March 2018
The enthusiastic students of 1 and 2 went to a fieldtrip on 8 th March, 2018 at Kidzania, Dubai Mall. 600 students and 50 teachers joined the trip. There were lots of educational things that are waiting for them at Kidzania. We left the school at around 8:30 AM. We travelled for almost 30 minutes going to Dubai Mall. Students sang songs and had their breakfast in the bus. At first, students were given Kidzania money, in which they could use it in paying for some game. They had to play variety of games and earn more money. This money was also used to buy toys from the Kidzania Department Store. They learnt how to work in different organizations or work places like Dubai Police, Emirates Airline, DEWA, Dubai Municipality, Fire Department and many more. They also experience how to be a dentist, plumber, tire man, ice cream maker, DHL delivery men. Some students learnt how to paint, make pots, dance and even acting. Children felt that they were in a real Dubai community where in they experience how different jobs are being done by adults.Students were so happy as they experienced working through wages. Everytime they work, it earned them money. Even teachers played along with her class students and enjoyed the trip. But time was really short as we need to go back to school. Nothing can pay us for the wonderful experience that we had. Happiness and enjoyment were reflected our students faces.
