“Learn to Love Yourself and everything will fall in to place”. To make our children understand how important it is to love their selves, “Love Yourself” topic was chosen as the first commandment among the 10 commandments they will be learning along with the regular lessons this year. Each month a commandment is chosen based on the qualities a child should posses to become an ideal child. A pledge on “Love Yourself” was introduced and the children also enjoyed drawing all by themselves on the activity sheet. Kids were made to look in the mirror and say few complementing phrases about themselves. It was really a adorable sight to watch them feeling shy while admiring themselves on the mirror.
In the time and age of ‘auto-correct’, ‘predictive text’ and ‘spell check’, the Spell- Bee competition titled “Spellabrity” for grade 4 and 5 students, conducted at CPS came as a whiff of fresh breeze.

In the preliminary round, the students were given exigent and interesting worksheets to test their versatility and skills in spellings and vocabulary. The final round was conducted on 22/6/18 which comprised of two rounds, ‘ Spell the letters to form the word’ and ‘Spell it out ‘. Students participated with great enthusiasm and dueled through the toughest words to prove their mettle.
