The school reopened on 8th June for the academic year 2015-2016. The month of June was also a transition period for the 5 Day Centre going students. We started with completely weaning away the parents in school. The school timings for these 5 were made full day i.e., 9.30am to 3.30pm. The concepts learnt last term were refreshed and stabilized. The saga continues……the earlier we intervene….the chances of limited secondary disability…we continue to make lives better!!
The month of June also helped us do the prep work for the new admissions (to start from 2nd July). Each new admission child was called on separate days to explain the EI programme to the parents. The furniture measurements for the children were taken. Follow us for more updates!!!
