Sunday 2nd December - Kendra Trip to the V&A Museum
We have been on a magnificent journey around the world, seeing how others 
live, taking part in cultural activities and exploring what other countries have 
to offer. Our journey ends with a search for the lost treasure of artefacts from 
around the world at the V&A Museum. Joined with all our baalako, parents and Gujarati teachers, we had a fantastic day to end the finchley Kendra term on a great adventure.

Sunday 11th November - Shishukunj Diwali!!!

Finchley Kendra had a fantastic, colourful and 
fun day to celebrate Diwali and start the festivities of on a high. The Shishukunj family created a wonderful rangoli using coloured rice. Our parents joined us to view an exhibition of photos and articles to show what finchley Kendra have been doing this term. We wish you all a Happy Diwali and Prosperous New Year!

Sunday 21st October - A Trip Down Under (aka Kenton Kendra)

Finchley Kendra made an unexpected journey across the seas to join Kenton Kendra for a Bi-Kendra Day that provided challenges for all to overcome. This day turned into one that will not be forgotten, where all our baalako had the opportunity to spend time with their bhaio and beno from Kenton Kendra. Our youngest baalako Kangaroo hopped their way to Kenton and we all enjoyed a superb Baalsabha session where our baalako showed off their talents.       

Sunday 14th October 2012 - Let's Dance in the Brazil Carnival!
Following on from the great atmosphere in Jamaica, we traveled over to Brazil and embraced the bright, energetic culture that the country has to offer. Our baalako made colourful masks to wear just like those in the famous carnivals of Rio. We combined the energy seen in these carnivals with our own Ramzanyu steps to prepare for a fantastic weekend of Navratri celebrations.

Sunday 7th October 2012 -  "Take me, Take me, to Jamaica now!"

Our photographer was not able to meet us in the USA last week, however has flown over to join us in the paradise that is Jamaica! Here we had the chance to sprint in relay races like Usain Bolt and listen to some reggae music, that is so iconic to Jamaica. Finally we were able to experience the carnival atmosphere by making our own costumes and having our own mini-parade.

Sunday 23rd September 2012 - Visit to Scotland

After the Opening Ceremony to our "Around the World" theme, this week our baalako took a short journey to Scotland. Here they found out more about the different foods in Scotland, as well as the Queen's responsibilities for the whole of the United Kingdom. 

Sunday 16th September 2012- Welcome to our Navaa Baalako

This week we welcomed our navaa baalako and our Baal Mandir baalako to their first day at Shishukunj. After a fantastic start to the day, The Kendra were introduced to the theme for the term - "Around the World". Each Dasta got to know each other through fun games and a flag making ECA , followed by a grand Opening Ceremony.
