Many adults complain when it´s a rainy day, but kids just love it. Our Pre Primary (Ukg and Mont iii) children had a great time some months ago in the rain. Right from the day they handed over the raincoats to their teacher all kids were just waiting for the rainy day to come, so that they could go out to the play ground and have fun in the rain….. But this monsoon was so uncertain that it really made our kids impatient, as no rain remained for a longer time. CPS Pre primary children’s joy knew no bounds when the long awaited rains poured! All the children got into their colourful raincoats in a jiffy and ran out to get wet. Whatever time they spent in the rain with their raincoats and with their classmates, sure would have given them a wonderful experience.
Our Tiny tots jumping, running and playing in the rain with those colourful raincoats was a real cool visual delight. In fact the other older kids who peeped from their window hearing their playing noise, was really thrilled and we could see their eagerness to join this fun and enjoyment along with their juniors in the rain.
Young children are eager learners. They learn by moving, touching, exploring, discovering — using their five senses and movement as they learn about their expanding world. Art activities can create a sense of cooperation and belonging to a group. Each work of art creates a sense of achievement and personal expression in the young artists. CPS pre primary believes and concentrates on the overall development of kids and ensures to give the opportunity and the ultimate exposure to the world of craft, by involving each and every child.
More than all, our CPS Pre primary children are under the guidance of teachers, who are experts in art and craft, which further made our kids, just explore their creativity this year too. Any simple material given was turned out to a beautiful craft and made the kids feel proud with their creativity, though it looked muddled and scruffy before our teachers could give a great finishing touch.
The display of all the creative craft of our kids were exhibited for our parents view along with fun and food stalls. This year stalls from “Hot wheels”, Faber Castel, Chocolate fountain, cotton candy, Popcorn and many more added more spice and made it a real fun filled carnival. More than 1000 parents visited the event and motivated us.
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. . . . Albert Einstein
Career Guidance to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.
Keeping these words in mind Chennai Public school has given importance in paving the way to transform the dreams of students into reality. CPS used this as an opportunity to work on providing an outlook for Standard twelve students. Hence, they had invited a career guidance consultant Mr. Syed Sultan Ahmed the founder and the MD of Edumedia to help students. He gave a very inspiring speech about career – planning, different ways of choosing the path in achieving their dream career and so on. He had expanded the student’s minds by triggering questions like what career they are about to choose? What career they had in mind and how are they going to attain that goal? These were the things; the school had focused on achieving, by these programs.
CPS did not stop with this but also invited KAPLAN, an International University located in Singapore. This institution of higher learning dedicated to providing innovative undergraduate, graduate, and continuing professional education. Mr. Sameer Masih had shown them the opportunities available at the university to bridging the gap between the students and their goals. He had an interactive session with the students, of the various courses and facilities, available for the students who wish to enroll themselves at KAPLAN.

Learning about “Fruits and Vegetables” at CPS Pre primary is a fun filled package which is a week long learning program – “Farmville”
Fruits and vegetables benefit kids in many ways, including improved nutrition, decreased obesity risk and better school performance. After the first year, you may notice your child is fussier with food as they become more independent eaters. Often this fussiness with food includes fruit and vegetables.
It is a great time to learn about the health benefits of eating fruits and vegetables at school and to try making them enjoy eating fruits and vegetables. Many class activities and group activities were planned and each child was involved in learning about fruits and vegetable. Activities like vegetable carving, vegetable printing, fruit colouring, salad making with fruits and vegetables and so on.
This time, the highlight was the “Market Setup” with real fruits and vegetables, where kids were given a real shopping experience with their class mates. It was a real adorable scene to watch the kids walking with baskets selecting the fruits and vegetables. The most excellent part of the scene was the billing time, where they were given fake rupee notes to pay for their shopping. It was delightful to watch the children enjoying this new experience thoroughly.
