The last day of July was Guru Pournima. All the children made cards and these cards were to honour their very first guru – their own mother! She is the one who teaches them their first words, is with them for their first steps and nurtures and nourishes them. At Walnut School, we believe that all the other gurus line up after the mother.

So children made beautiful cards in school and wrote very touching messages and gave them to their mothers. We hope that the mothers loved them and understand that the children really appreciate their contribution in their lives. The children made some really wonderful cards for the teachers in school too. The whole school was looking so pretty with all the cards to decorate the softboards! The teachers were really moved and felt very fulfilled to have chosen this as their vocation. Thank you, students. We really love having you in the school.

As the exams were over, there was a week to spare to the start of the Diwali break. We had to get the children into the holiday mood and get preparations underway for the Grand Diwali Carnival. What a week it was! Looking back we can safely say that it was ‘Family Fun’ for Team Walnut – the students, the staff and the parents too!
