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. 

    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.

    CORE KENDRA WEEKLY UPDATE

    Today was a fantastic end to the term, starting with the Gujarati Awards being presented and an energetic prathna session. Following this, we had our huge end-of-term ECA, with baalko aiming to make a real difference. We packed boxes full of books (over 2000 books) to be sent to underprivileged children in Kenya, learnt how to relax in an asasno session that followed a lively game session, and won sponsorship money for the Charity Walk by completing challenges in an exciting funfair. With music pumping and the sun shining, the atmosphere at Kendra was electric and it was a fantastic end to an incredible year!


    BAAL MANDIR WEEKLY UPDATE

    The last Baalmandir day was amazing and we certainly ended on a high. After an energetic prarthna session with main kendra, we had an intense kawayat session.  Although it was hot, we were so proud that they were determined to complete dau 1 to 13 of kalestanics knowing it would be their last session. Then began the main fun! A relaxing asano session under the tree restored their energy ready for games session. All the chairs and balloons were ready for musical chairs and musical statues. The seniors kindly offered to be our DJs and the whole atmosphere in the sun was great. To end their graduation day, we had a presentation and award session with the parents. The baalako were super excited to find out the winning house (team fire!) and the most excited about receiving their treat from us.
    We are all so happy to have had such a great, lively and funny bunch of baalako. We're excited to see you next year and see you grow throughout your time at Shishukunj :)
