Dr. Ms. Jaishree Bhargava, the Principal, said, “The formative years are very important, as children learn very quickly and also show interest in various activities. Normal pre-school education is structured classes but in hobby sessions, they get exposure to a lot of things and pick up what they like and express themselves. This would help the child in becoming more creative,” she said.
It was organised from 11 to 13 May 2016 for the students of class 3 to class 8. Teresa House emerged as the winner of the competition. Tagore House and Radhakrishnan House got second and third place respectively.
