September 2022 Newsletter
Greetings from SWABODHINI!
We seem to have left the Covid days well behind as almost all activities including participation in various extra-curricular events conducted by other organizations have resumed. Our students recently participated in a Carrom Tournament and came out with flying colors!! Just before the school closed for Pooja Holidays, we conducted assessments for our students to gauge their progress. This was followed up with individual PRR (Progress Review Report) sessions with the parents, teaching staff and management in attendance. It was heartwarming to note the progress of our students
on various fronts and we look forward to implementing the feedback received from the parents on areas of improvement!!
Interns from various institutions have started working with us on several projects and we are learning from the fresh perspectives they bring to the table. With the festive season in progress the school is abounding in positive energy and we look forward to riding this wave well into the future.
We would like to thank our sponsors, well-wishers and parents for their continued support. It is your positivity and support that keeps us going every single day!!
Wishing you all a nice day.
