It was time for Stage 2 – for the Junior and Senior KG students to arrive for their first day at Walnut School!

Our grown-up toddlers were delighted to come to school and were excited to see so many activities being conducted in their school hours!

Some children started crying when their school hours were over and wanted to stay for one more session! This is something which every educationist and teacher dreams of – to keep their children engaged in the school and increasing their desire to keep learning.

Our grown-up toddlers were also able to figure out our subject-wise classroom concepts quickly – on day two, they were able to tell which room was for which activity! Talk about smart children. They really loved the concept of sitting on bean stools in most of the rooms – that put them at ease, and gave our teachers an opportunity to start off with learning.
Look at the pictures below – you would easily figure out how happy these children are!

Going by how well the past few days have passed by, we are very eager to meet our young men of the primary section on Monday 15th June – in stage 3.

Communication and planning

As a parent, what do we expect from a school? We expect that our child learns various things and learns them well. Various things include core subjects, art, craft, sports, languages etc. In the busy schedule that everyone has these days, how can parents keep a tab on the progress of their child? How can they know what their child is supposed to do at home, if at all? It becomes very unfair for the parents to know the progress of their child at the end of every unit, after the unit test. There is precious little that can be done in remedial action after two to three months have gone by and that portion is not touched later on.
