A big thank you for your continued support. I hope you are enjoying the summer.
Since you last heard from us, the number of smiles in our school has grown! The student strength in the two kindergarten levels has increased to 310 with admissions this year taking in a bigger class. We're looking forward to nurturing a bigger class and introducing them to fun courses in art & craft, PE and mind sports.
An increase in food costs has resulted in a change in our menu and budget for the next year. This, along with the increase in our class size means our overall costs have increased overall. The following is a break-up of the Average Monthly Cost of the Breakfast Programme:
