Parent Education Session
We hosted our second Parent Education session on Dec 1st, 2012. The session was conducted by Mr. Sanjay Prabhakaran, Mr. Anirudha Kar, and myself on the IB philosophy, its structure and delivery in the classrooms. It was an informative and interactive session which helped the parents gain an insight into what goes on in a PYP classroom.
Remote Learning Centre
The CEO of the Indus Trust, General Arjun Ray inaugurated the Remote Learning Centre in Kondakal village. The centre is open to village children attending government schools near Kondakal from 4:30pm – 6:30pm to offer after school support.
In his inaugural speech General Ray announced that IISH would offer children who excelled at the school, scholarships to study further. The RLC is a reaffirmation of our belief in Servant Leadership. The RLC is an important step in our efforts to serve our Community.
Christmas is a magical time of the year that all children look forward to. The IELC hosted a Christmas carnival for our primary children as well as children from other schools. The children enjoyed a wonderful day at the carnival. The carnival was hosted in aid of the Remote Learning Centre and we raised more than Rs 40000 from selling children’s artwork, calendars, food etc. All proceeds from the carnival went towards the RLC.
The highlight of the event was a visit from Santa Claus. The children also enjoyed the games, art activities, and the bouncy castle.
Our Sports Day was the last event to the term and a great way to start the holidays for the Orian house students who scored incredibly well and came first! The military band certainly looked very festive...
