Title : First Day For KG Boys In School (2016 - 17)
Making Kindergarten 'fun'
The KG boys started their school on the 4th of April. The classes had beautiful displays making the class look welcoming and colourful.
The orientation (which was held a week earlier) helps create the foundation for positive relationships between parents, teachers and students that sets the stage for a smooth transition to school and future success.
We aspire to continue making the first day in the classroom a happy and successful experience for all our boys in all the sections of the KG.
