Hope you all are doing well!
“Although no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.” – Carl Bard.
We are towards the end of the academic year, looking backward I must say- what a wonderful year it was! I congratulate each one of you on the successful completion of the academic session, which created a lot of learning experiences for each one of us. Standing together as a community (students, parents, and school staff), despite the uncertainties, made consistent learning possible.
The month of March is full of enthusiasm and zeal and has a festive mood. Celebrating International Women’s Week and preparing for upcoming Holi celebrations, the school is hued in the colors of spring.
Last weekend was a special one, especially for the PYP Segment. I would like to congratulate Grade EYP2 and Grade 5 learners for graduating and celebrating their year-long learning with family, friends, and teachers.
Educators at Oakridge International School Mohali aspire towards ensuring that every child learns, every moment, to become everything that they can. Teachers planned a special in-house event, named ‘Next Steps’ to welcome EYP 2 (old) into Grade 1 (new), where parents got a chance to interact with teachers and students got a chance to have a glimpse of what Grade 1 learning looks like via fun activities.
We also welcomed new members into the Oakridge Family via Curriculum Familiarization and Parent Orientation Session, where the parents of Nursery to Grade 5 were briefed about the curriculum, learning approaches, assessment criteria, and other basic concepts.
We are happy to announce that the state-of-the-art Library and Laboratories (Physics, Chemistry, Biology) are near completion and we are looking forward to inaugurating them soon. It will be a huge value addition to the learning journey of the students.
In the secondary segment, CBSE pre-boards for Grade 10th and 12th just got over, I wish all the very best for their finals. We are also conducting Learning League 2022, where Grade 6 to 8 (old) students will get an opportunity to clarify the misconceptions and bridge gaps through fun-based activities.
Our students are ready to take a step forward towards another wonderful year of transformative learning. Looking forward to your continued enthusiastic participation in all that happens in school as well as your support!
