Thank you for making the effort to turn up to support your child/children at Nania’s recent Harvest Festival.  Your support is important to them.  Noticing your encouraging smiles, the children gave their best when they sang songs and recited poems.  We are glad that the children enjoyed the puppet show. When they sang happily together with us at the end of the puppet show, we felt the strong connection between us. I hope you enjoyed the day too.





We had our second ‘Bento Day’ this year at the beginning of the month. As usual, Bento Day gave the children the wonderful and exciting experience of buying their own lunch boxes from the kitchen staff. The 6-year-olds were hands-on during Bento Day. They have become more skillful at shelling eggs this time. Everyone had a very full lunch that day.  They asked for many rounds of ‘okawari’ as they loved the food that was served. After lunch, the 5-year-olds also contributed by cleaning and wiping dry the lunch boxes for recycling.



We had a wonderful evening with parents who attended the English Class Parents and Teachers’ Evening Meeting. We started with the poem by Kahlil Gibran ~ “On Children” from “The Prophet”. After my sharing about the class dynamics, two ex-students’ parents shared their experiences on how they support their children in the transition period when their children joined the primary school.

Later, we had the chance to know more from every parent when they introduced themselves and shared their children’s development. There is so much love in the air when parents talk about their children. And I was so moved that the parents not only cared and noticed things about their own children and also the other children as well. I feel the English Class is like a big warm family!

Last week we celebrated the festival of lights, Deepavali with the children. Most of the children were excites as they wore colourful Indian traditional clothes. Teacher Punitha danced with them in the classroom. During our snack time, we lit on the oil lamps at the display corner. The atmosphere was serene and calm. Teacher Punitha told a story to the children and later on we enjoyed the Indian snacks. At the end of the day, children brought home their coloured Ranggoli pattern.



In November, we will have many birthday celebrations for both classes. At the same time, we will also be busy practising for the Christmas Festival and taking photos for the children. Therefore, we will have our bread baking day only on 20th November.

In a wink of an eye, it is time for the English class graduation on the 8th of November (Friday).  This year we have 7 children graduating i.e. 4 girls and 3 boys.  They have made their “Star Crowns”, weaving bags and musical instruments for their big day. Together with the smaller children, they are now practicing their speeches, songs, and poems earnestly in the class and are looking forward to their graduation day. 

To the graduating parents, please mark this important date in your calendar as we appreciate your full attendance and support.
