The school promised them that they will help each child to develop strong wings to achieve newer heights and mould the students as per their aptitude and potentials.

Novelty Relay Races by the students of Foundation Stage were a joy to watch while the little ones enjoyed trying to outdo their competitors. Some of the races were – ‘Getting ready for school’, ‘ Bunny passes the carrot on’, ‘let’s assemble the UAE Flag’, ‘3 legged race’, ‘let’s make a chain’ and ‘ let’s make a plant together’. These races not only enhanced their social and motor skills, it also helped them develop team spirit and values of sharing and caring. Medals for the three positions were given to all the winners.
