Taj - Fishermans Cove in Gurukulam

Taj - Fishermans Cove have always brought a smile to our children...and the 21st Aug 09 was no different :-)

Mr Tanay spent time with our children...He took a scintillating class on the Solar Eclipse.. It was simply wonderful to see the topic that he had chosen to share, the pains to bring forth a great presentation and the love that made this happen...Thank you Mr Tanay :-) Our children loved it..

A typical morning assembly

The winners of the medals for Academic excellence, Discipline, Dress Code and Best Effort for the week

Working with Nature

The race is on :-)

....for the class with the green thumb.

Teachers and respective classes have taken a small "plot" as their own to make it green...with loads of enthusiasm as you can see... In the days to come, it will be a joy to watch their progress together...
