Are you ready for First Grade?
A BIG transition happens every year for our Baby Walnuts from Senior KG to first grade at Walnut School. And like all the things we do at Walnut, we help students (and parents!) handle this transition smoothly. Click to read the first part of our series about this transition and how we do it at Walnut.
Events at Walnut School
There are events in schools, and then there are events at Walnut Schools. Take a deep dive into how we organize events at Walnut Schools – the attention to details, and the scale at which events happen.
Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge
We constantly strive to engage students in activities and competitions that enable them to use and upgrade necessary life skills. Computational thinking is one of those skills that students of this era need to pursue and develop. Walnut students participated in the Bebras India Challenge to test their computational thinking and problem solving skills. In 2020, 2.5 million students took the challenge across 56 countries. We’re happy to announce that our students emerged rankers in this challenge. Read more here…
