This Week's Suchna

    GUJARATI TIMINGS
    Gujarati will start at 9:00am. As always if you are late please ensure your baalak signs in at the Choki Desk. Please ensure your baalak has a water bottle which they can use whilst in gujarati class. 

    FINCHLEY KENDRA BOOK COLLECTION - 1STJULY 

    To support the wider book collection occurring on the 7th of July, we are organising a Kendra book drive on 1st July. We would like to encourage baalako to collect as many books as they can, by asking at their school,friends and family and bring them to kendra on 1st July.  Baalako will be involved in sorting out these books, and have the opportunity to see how their actions have directly gone to help baalako in India and Kenya.


    Together we can make a big difference.



    GUJARATI HELPERS WANTED
    If anyone would like to help during gujarati classes, please email gujarati_finchley@shishukunj.org.uk. Your time would be much appreciated. 


    SHISHUKUNJ CHARITY WALK 
    An opportunity for a fun day out with family and friends, whilst raising money for a great cause. Sign up today for the Great Shishukunj Family Challenge here and let's start fundraising. Please remind your baalako about the dasta competition 


    ABSENCE, EARLY LEAVING AND LATE ARRIVALS PROCEDURE

    PLEASE ENSURE IF YOUR BAALAK IS ARRIVING LATE OR LEAVING EARLY THEY SIGN IN AND OUT OF THE CHOKI DESK!

    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.

    UNIFORM (LABELLED)

    Kendra Update: Sunday 20th May 2018

    GUJARATI

    This week's Gujarati homework can be found on this link


    CORE KENDRA WEEKLY UPDATE

    Today was a great day, and despite the greyer weather there was still a real buzz at Kendra. After an energetic vyayam session and Gujarati classes, we had an awesome dasta session based on the charity walk, where we learnt about different ways to find sponsorship. After that we had a lively prathna session and a brilliant games and kawayat session. We ended the day with a fantastic big nasto!

    BAAL MANDIR WEEKLY UPDATE

    We began the day with circle time where we went round and shared our half term which was then followed by a game of gandhi ke esa before prarthna with main kendra. They were excellent in the fire drill today as they were calm and listened to all the rules. Father's day card making was a success; they wrote lovely messages so we hope all the dad's liked it! We missed out on kawayat today but had a games session instead. Overall it was a great day :)
