Signature Programmes

Learning Journey to Little India Pongal Festival

Pupils of P4 and P5 went to Little India to participate in the Pongal Festivities. It was an opportunity not be missed as they had a chance to see cows and goats at arms-length. They also took part in all the hands-on sessions like saree/vetti tying, Kolam drawing, cooking of pongal rice and village dancing.



MTL Fortnight

Various cultural activities were organized for our pupils. All pupils participated in these with enthusiasm. These activities helped them to be aware of their cultural roots and activities.
