Eid Mubarak and Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

Dear Parents,

Let me take this opportunity to extend the very best wishes to you on the occasion of Eid and Ganesh Chaturthi: the two festivals that the whole country will be celebrating this week. These are great occasions for the entire family and community to get-together and we hope you have the most enjoyable time. As mentioned on our school calendar, both the 31st ( wednesday) and the 1st ( Thursday) are holidays.

The kids have learnt to wish each other "Eid Mubarak" today and we also had a great time making little coconut and condensed milk milk 'laddoos" or "modaks", Ganesha's favourite sweet!!  Some of the children even carried one or two home for their mommies!

Wishing you a great week ahead!
