“ANVAYA” Music classes commenced at Superkidz – Junior Academy!
Music is one of the greatest gifts you could give your child and one that will last them a lifetime. Words paired with music are far easier to retain. As an example, most of us can remember the words and meanings of songs we haven’t heard for years. Music is also an effective, almost magical medium for learning and retaining information. Music helps to develop will power and discipline. Music lessons develop social and communication skills.
Keeping this fact in mind, we decided to introduce a structured and planned musical teaching in Superkidz at Junior Block. And now we are glad to inform that the “ANVAYA”, a team of Classical Vocal Music Performers who are passionate about sharing the joy of music-making with young children, have joined hands with us and commenced their Music classes as part of Superkidz Program at Junior Block. The kids thoroughly enjoy the songs taught in different languages and on different topics.
“The most valuable gift a human can give to others is to share and care.
Share what you have, care for those you have.”
Sharing and caring is a vital life skill that will accelerate the process of teaching social competency among young children. To provide our pre primary students the opportunity to learn about and practise sharing and caring, the CPS Pre Primary wing organised the Share and Care Day. For the event, each child gifted one of their friends with a story book to express their readiness to share and care towards their friends. The happiness in each child’s face was reflected with a beaming smile filled with joy and satisfaction when they gave away and received the gift from their friends.
This event has provided our young learners a better understanding of the moral concepts of “Share & Care”. This experience will help the children to evolve successful in social adaptation for now and lifelong.

“A healthy mind resides in a healthy body”
In order to inculcate healthy eating habits in our young learners, a delectable event- “Bon Appetit” was organized by the CPS Pre primary wing. In this event, the children participated in the making of healthy scrumptious food preparations like vegetable Salad, bread sandwich and fruit salad. This event was conceptualized, as learning to make and enjoy healthy food early in life, can significantly impact long term health.
The children recognized different food ingredients involved in the preparation and they were oriented about the goodness of these vegetables and fruits in their daily diet. They beamed with excitement to participate in some pre preparation activities, like peeling and grating the vegetables and placing the vegetable filling in the sandwich and preparing the salads. Finally the children got to taste their appetizing preparations which gave them more happiness to have it along with their friends.
This event helped the children to explore on healthy food choices, discover the colourful varieties of fruits and vegetables and to experience the fun of getting involved in food preparation. This event for sure would instigate our young minds to learn, experiment and have fun with more healthy food preparations.
