Picking Up @ Kendra
All baalako will be in their dastas in the hall or playground or in the Hall. Please find your baalak's Dasta Nayak so they know you are taking your baalak home. 

Absence

Leaving Early
If your baalak is leaving Kendra Early please inform our administration team at the Choki Desk in the morning to discuss the most appropriate time to pick them up without affecting our activities. If your Baalak is regularly required to leave early please email harrow@shishukunj.org.uk to discuss this with the Kendra Nayak to discuss the impact on your baalak's development.

Gujarati Homework

Last Week @ Kendra - 24/11

This week we had our second week of Indian Culture focused activities. We looked at the Ramayana, Indian Food, Music and Indian History. Ensuring our baalako are in touch with their Indian roots is an important part of what we do at Shishukunj. 

We also had our Gandhi Gooch Trip into London where baalako had to visit a variety of locations in London. Each location had a certain number of points and they had to prioritise which locations they want to visit to get the most number of points in total. We ended the day at the Bhavan with Hot Chocolate and presentations about what the baalako learnt in the day. 


Coming Week @ Kendra - 01/12

We will be having our final round of activities all about Indian Culure. We will be looking out India Food, Music, History, Stories and Music. We also have our half-termly Baal Sabha (Talent Show) where some of our baalako will be showing off their amazing abilities. 

Subash Gooch STEM Trip
Subash Gooch will be going on their trip - we hope the baalako are excited and ready to get their teamwork and science minds on for their challenges.
