Dear Principal,

All schools have been under lockdown since late March, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Teaching learning transaction, at least the way we know it, has not been possible during this period. In order to ensure that students stay in touch with studies and continue to learn, programmes are being organised for two core subjects, namely English and Mathematics, for our Junior & Middle School children from Classes III to VIII.


· To present selected elements of two core subjects, namely English and Mathematics, to Junior and Middle School children studying from Class III to Class VIII in CISCE affiliated schools.

· To develop an interest in the subjects through simple games and activities so that children are able to relate and apply learnt concepts to real life situations.
