“Siblings are the best friends for life God has gifted us with.”
To celebrate and foster the relationship of siblings, the CPS Pre Primary (UKG/Mont III) children welcomed their older siblings with great excitement and were proud to share their learning environment with them.
The children were delighted to sing rhymes and actively participated in interactive group games along with their siblings. They were excited to do the paper folding activity and were engrossed when their young visitors presented famous folk tales to them and to their friends. The older siblings showed great interest in teaching blending words using stick puppets, picture cards and letters.
“If you want to do really important and big things in life, you can’t do anything by yourself. And your best teams are your friends and your sibling.” Sibling Day blossomed into a beautiful day – a day of building cherished memories with their siblings.

CPS ANA – TEACHERS ORIENTATION PROGRAM 2015-16

“The great air of education is not knowledge but action.”—Herbert Spencer
The workshops conducted in CPS aims either to give the teacher new information to help them teach more effectively or to enhance and clarify information that the teachers already possess. Learning key elements to develop workshops for teachers would make the experience more meaningful and thus have a more positive impact on reaching the goal.
Keeping this in mind we developed the workshop for teachers who shared a commonality .They got a flood of new ideas for introducing new lessons plans and formulas for tapping into our students’ creativity and expanding their knowledge and ability to learn on a much more creative basis. The experience, the teachers got would change the way they teach and the way they perceive each one of their students and their unique creativity.
Orientation program for Science, EVS, and Math, Pre skills for reading, writing, vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, Soft skill and Emotional Quotient inspired teachers to ignite students’ imagination. We are sure this would bring in changes in many lives positively.

CPS ANA – MULTIHUE

“The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most.”

The ability to identify colors is considered a marker and milestone in a child’s cognitive process and is often part of early screening for development and educational admittance.

Recognizing the colors and identifying the color names is an important part of a child’s development. Early identification of colors helps to create the cognitive link between visual clues and words.

Like every year this year too, CPS pre primary (UKG / MONT III) had a great start by learning about colours and shapes. Children are naturally attracted to colors, and learning colours with fun filled activities gives them more enjoyment and curiosity.
Children were asked to come in colour dress for a week. It was really a treat to see them admiring and discussing about each other’s costume and colours. Each and every kid enjoyed all the activities planned thoroughly. UKG and Mont III classes had lots of activities like wet chalk colouring, paper fan folding (origami), cone cap making, crush paper work, leaf sticking, collage, butter fly hand print, stick puppet, cotton dabbing, glitter spraying work, coin printing, grain sticking and finger printing.
Children have a natural affinity to understand their world around them. Surrounded by a world of color it is easy to use daily opportunities to discuss colors. The “Multihue” week gave a wonderful opportunity to UKG and Mont III children to learn about colours and shapes involving themselves in many colourful fun filled activities along with peer group with joy.
