BANYAN TREE SCHOOL MANSAROVAR, JAIPUR
We would like to welcome everyone back after the Summer Breaks! We hope you all had a pleasant and wonderful Summer Break. During the vacation the work crews have been busy making repairs, painting classrooms and sprucing up our facilities for the students. Students have commenced the term on a very positive note and look great in new school uniform. The first 2 weeks of school have been great. The children are adapting well and it is normal that it can take a couple of days for children to get used to anew routine after such a long break. We for sure are back to school with many new as well as familiar faces, with great energy, with some precious ideas and most of all with the warmth and welcoming smiles that many of us give and receive from each other. Now, the real adventure starts and no one can stop our children from having fun. Coming to school with the anticipation of doing fun activities makes learning much easier.
BALA (Building as Learning Aid) was introduced to students the last week in form of learning about â€œShapesâ€? on the boards.

It was a sweet and juicy morning for the tiny tots of BTS as the little ones welcomed the season's first mangoes with sheer delight on 12h July 2013, celebrating Mango Day. Little Montessorians looked like fresh Alphonsoâ€™s dressed in yellow color. Children were introduced to the King of Fruits on this day they & enjoyed the taste of different varieties of mango. The students also learn the cutting of mango, making of mango shake & the best way to serve it. They were also told the nutritional benefits of eating mango.
CoOkInG wItHoUt FiRe To create awareness about the need to save fuel and adopt eco-friendly ways, a 'Cooking without Fire' workshop for students of class I & II was organized in the school. The students were also introduced to different new words like peeling, chopping, spreading butter, mayonnaise, oregano, chili flakes etc. The objective behind this activity was to inculcate healthy food habits and awareness regarding the choice of food among the student. The studentâ€™s creativity was revealed through the beautiful and mouth watering salads, sandwiches etc.
Teaching does not need to be limited to textbooks and blackboards. With our fun school activities for kids, learning in school becomes an interesting and enjoyable exercise. The School firmly believes that textual studies are only but a part of the full development of a child and therefore provides a spectrum of in house activities through its program of SUPW. The main thrust of activities at BTS are visualized to promote the development of a balanced and harmonious personality of the students including physical, practical, aesthetic, moral and intellectual aspects.
