There was lots of excitement in Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld in February 2017. Sports Day was held on Saturday, February 25, 2017.
There were lots of athletic events such as hurdle races, balancing races and games that exhibited children’s concentration, coordination and physical strength. A festive feel was added to the sports day by a breathtaking and scintillating performance by the school choir of Rhythmites. Senior children till class V also joined the celebrities with their little friends. A mesmerising band performance, march-past, drill, yoga and dance added to the fervour.
Every child was made to feel like a winner. We could see bonhomie, espirit de corps and competitive spirit in the participants. Each parent’s pride was evident as they watched their child’s undeterred resolve and earnest effort. Most importantly, the Sports Day was an enriching learning experience for one and all.
The Start of the Mom ‘n’ Me Prog (April 2017)
Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld started its NEW Mom ‘n’ Me session in April with a curriculum packed with valuable advice and information to help familiarise new age parents about creating a conducive environment at home so as to make schooling more fun. The program also aims to give confidence to parents about children being safe and happy as they embark upon a journey of new achievements, explorations, adventures, inventions and achievements.
The Mom ‘n’ Me program at Rhythms Kinderworld is designed for the children in the age group of 1 to 1.6 years. It is uniquely conceptualised to lay a strong foundation in the early years of the toddlers. It aims to proudly partner with mothers for a toddler’s growth, development and achievements by shaping intrinsic skills and developing lifelong learning. It focuses on meeting each child’s physical, cognitive, language, emotional and creative needs through developmentally appropriate learning practices. The program ensures high Emotional Quotient (EQ) for the child, making him adapt to the new environment happily and comfortably.
Graduation Day (March 2017)
Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld recently celebrated its Graduation Day on Friday March 24, 2017 and what a great show it was!
The theme of the day was “Kinder Kruise” and as the name suggests, the décor had an exciting nautical feel to it. There were helms, ship anchors and floating rings, giving the impression of a sea cruise. Live music from a saxophone greeted us as we entered and once the program began, we were enthralled. The evening was filled with enchanting performances – a choir followed by ballet, free-style dance, theatre, dance-drama and the grand finale, a superb Jazz performance. And finally, each and every graduating student was felicitated. In the midst of resounding cheers and applauds, each child was awarded a trophy!
The event had Ms. Zeeny Jhelumi, renowned Author, educator and editor as the chief Guest and Ms. Galina Lyakhova, Russian ballet artist as the Guest of Honour.
