    Good evening!
    Yesterday on Parths birthday I came across a cute little letter he wrote for his class teacher so sending it across.

    Dear Dharna ma'am

    Today it's my birthday, I was unwell today missed mom but at school you were so loving and caring it made me feel so much better. It was so special when you came downstairs to just see that I reach safely. It's not only today everyday at school you are always there when I feel I need a smiling support.

    I joined this new school but was deep scared inside feeling I will be so lonely and everything would be so different. You from first day made me feel comfortable and helped me to get along with my classmates, its tough but I am trying hard. You believed and supported me when I felt the whole wide world won't ever understand what I am struggling with.

    Ma'am do you know magic that all my problems seem so small when I come and tell you. I like to help you in small tasks. I know sometimes I do wrong things I am trying not to...

    Today I wish to thank God for making you my class teacher. I wish that your blessing stay with me always and I try to improve the way you wish I should.

    Your student

  • Dear Ma'am,
     
    I would like to extend our sincere and heartiest gratitude and wishes to the entire pre-primary team of CPGIS, pune, for all the efforts you all take to let our little buds bloom in the most effervescent manner. I must mention the amazing contribution of Nursery teachers- Ms. Asma Phirphire and Ms. Divya Sarsar, in shaping my daughter, Diya, into the most active and creative being, that I, as a parent, wished and longed to see. The hard work reached its zenith on the day of the Transport event. Not only the students, even we enjoyed a lot. For those hours, we became kids ourselves. I am deeply touched by the love and affection that PPCOD- Ms. Rushmi Dake, has towards the students. Last but not the least, Diya talks about her love n fondness for her Principal- Ms. Rashmi Gupta, which is seldom seen now a days, the one to one bonding. I am happy to have chosen Spring buds International as Diya's first formal school.
     
    I am happy to see that my daughter is in the best care at the day care as well. Care and warmth given by Ms. Farida and Ms. Surekha is parallel only to what a mother can give. Please keep up the great work.
     
    I would like to extend our humble gratitude to CPGIS, Pune along with tons of accolades.
     
    Have a great day today and always.
     
    Thanks and Regards

    to Principal,

    Dear Mam,

    I truly want to thank you all for having Siddharth attend CIMUN.

    Siddharth has come back with such a rich experience that its hard for me to put it in words. He said “I made very good points and spoke very well”.. he also said “I am not disappointed I didn’t get best representative because I knew I was.. and other people came up to me to say that they were surprised that I didn’t get recognition”…
    As a matter of fact he say I want to attend all MUNs in and around and it is soul satisfying.. he said "I want to represent India in UN someday"…

    I think we all together have achieved what we want from our students.

    Thanks a lot Nadia mam and Alisha mam for taking such good care of kids and encouraging them… truly appreciate it..


    Thanks and Regards

  • Dear Ma'am,

    Today we really enjoyed meeting the old aged people. They all were very happy to see the children and were very lovely to talk to. They shared all the things with us very happily. Happiness is really good for their health.

    Thank you so much for making me a part of this beautiful and good effort. I pray to God for all aged people. 

    Hearty thank you Ma'am

  • Dear Principal Ma'am,

    Thank you so much for making us a part of this wonderful efforts taken by school. Its my pleasure to visit "Sandhya Home" and I really felt that a small step from us can give others especially people who need love, care and time. A bundle of joy and happiness. This step from school has actually become a tonic for them.

    Most important it is necessary for the new generation to get this social sensitization. I was touched to see children from school getting emotional. The moment when kids were talking to the old age people their eyes were full of joy. Precisely to note, both children and old age people were so involved in Talking as if they know each other since long time. 

    They all liked food so much and it was like a feast for them. They relished food and mainly they loved the idea of kids serving food.

    I personally appreciate this idea of school to make kids feel the responsibilities towards family and society. Children while leaving the old age home mentioned that we cannot keep our parents like this. They liked all Dada Dadis and Nana Nanis in "Sandhya Home"

    Keep up the good work !!

     

    Thanks

  • The concept of the fortnightly journal is refreshing and at the same time engaging for the parents to imagine the joy kids are getting while learning. Its thoughtful design is worth keeping it lifetime as frame of reference… many years down the line.
     
    Wish we also had these privileges!
     
    I can imagine how much efforts must have gone in preparing, collating and maintaining this piece of work. I want to congratulate everyone involved.
