KFFL session for Sept 2017

9th Sept 2017

15 volunteers from KPMG worked with our children from the 7th and 8th standards as part of the KPMG's Family For Literacy (KFFL) initiative.

Each volunteer worked with a group of 2-3 children, and guided them in diction, pronunciation and punctuation. 

The volunteers also guided the students in the use of new words that they encountered. 

This continued work with the children is heart warming and a thoughtful gift to our children from KPMG.
