    ABSENCE, EARLY LEAVING AND LATE ARRIVALS PROCEDURE

    For absences we will from now on be using a new Absence Form. If your baalak was absent or will be absent in the future please fill in the following online form. It is extremely quick and easy to use and means you will not have to give us a letter at Kendra. 


    HAYFEVER
    If you baalak suffers from hayfever, please ensure you give them their medication prior to coming to kendra as we will be spending more time outdoors during the summer term.

    CORE KENDRA WEEKLY UPDATE

    Today was an amazing day in the sun, starting with the Surya Namaskar in vyayam. Following that, we had a super-competitive samuh ramat session where baalko kept track of their accumulated points whilst learning about the importance of honesty and sportsmanship. In prathna we explored the value of inspiration and how being inspired and inspiring are both so important, with a great baudhik on teamwork too. We then had very lively kawayat and games session, with really good progress made across all gooches and full participation. We finished with pizza on the field, ending the half-term off on a real high!
