VIRTUAL KENDRA IS OPEN 

We are glad to announce that we have  launched "Shishukunj - Virtual Kendra" through the Zoom platform. The idea is that we run a few activities each week tailored for each age group which will aim to:
  1. Provide baalako an opportunity to socialise with baalako of their own age.
  2. Continue to develop our baalako holistically through simple and thoughtful activities.
  3. Promote positivity during this time.

GHARMA GARBA 2020
We are excited to invite you to Shishukunj's very first Gharma Garba 2020! Whilst we are sad that we won't be able to have everyone together and our baalako singing on stage for our annual memorable Raas Garba events, we will be having an online, fun-filled event to celebrate together in our own homes.

This event will take place on Sunday 1st November from 6pm to 7.30pm on Zoom. Get your parents to sign you up on the dashboard and come in your colourful Indian clothing.

If you cannot wait until the event and are feeling the Navratri spirit take part in THE SHISHUKUNJ GHARMA GARBA CHALLENGE. We invite all of you bhaio, beno, parents and volunteers (whatever your age!) to record a 30 second video clip of you dancing Garba or Raas to this song, just as Shahnalben has done! Please send your videos in via email. 

INTERNATIONAL JOINT KENDRA DAY

We will be back on Sunday 8th November for a very special and unique day. We are proud to announce the first ever International Joint Kendra Day!

Our fellow Beno and Bhaio from Melbourne (Australia) and Nairobi (Kenya) Kendras will be joining us for a fun filled day packed with exciting activities that will explore festivals celebrated around the world.

This event will run from 9 - 11:30am and will also be joint with Harrow Kendra. Never before have we had a Joint Kendra Day with 4 Kendras. This is an event not to be missed!






KENDRA UPDATE: 18th October 2020

An incredible first term where the baalako explored and learnt about bouncebackability, communication, power and imagination.


We will be back in November for 4 more weeks of Kendra. However, the Shishukunj fun will not stop there! We have 2 events during the half term: Gharma Garba 2020 and International Joint Kendra Day.
