Welcome Day celebration has been a foundation for the positive relationship among children, parents and the school at Indian School Darsait. It also helps to prepare a child for a positive start to their school journey. It was truly, an exciting, successful and happy experience, as ISD family welcomed their newest and youngest members to its fold on Monday, 8th April 2018, with a positive start to their school journey. Cheered on by their elders from Class V with an echoing of “ Hearty welcome to ISD” and a thunderous applaud, the tiny tots walked on proudly with their parents to their new world of letters and numbers, greeted and accompanied by the mascots for the first time, to be welcomed happily by the roaring young crowd.The school Principal, Dr. Sridevi P. Thashnath, embraced each of them with a heartwarming welcome and later, spent time with the little ones in the classroom while, they were also blessed with the honourable presence of the SMC President Mr. Jaikish Pavithran, Convener of SMC, Mr. Thomas George, Head of Infrastructure Committee, Mr. C. X. Varghese, Head of Sports Subcommittee, Head of SEN, Mrs. Shama Shams, Vice Principal(Primary Section) Mrs. Geeta Chauhan and Supervisor, Mr. Benny Sam, Coordinators Mrs. Bindu Ranjit and Mrs. Sheeja Philip along with the teachers who encouraged the families as they kept walking in.
Grabbing their backpacks and attired in their best outfits, they walked into the school with mixed emotions, entertained by their friends of fantasy; the “Panda”, “Mickey Mouse”, “Alvin and the Chipmunks” who made their day a very special and memorable one. It was easy to break the ice with the bubbles in the foyer as they stepped in for the first time. The teachers welcomed them into their vibrant classes to experience sensory and fun filled activities, like water play, blocks, sand tray and much more that kept them busy all throughout the day and also helped in easing their first day jitters. It was a very heartwarming moment when the anxious parents left their tiny tots in the classroom reassuring both themselves and their precious ones that it will be exciting. Indeed, the day ended with all smiles and happy faces, going home after a joyful day which they enjoyed in the company of mascots, bubbles and their new found friends and teacher that would help them with a fun filled and successful year ahead.
