“Five Little Monkeys” Poem Enactment - Nursery
Poem enactments are a great way for children to express themselves. The children were ready for some monkey business on 22nd September 2011, as we had a poem enactment on “Five little Monkeys”. They looked adorable in their “monkey”, “mummy” and “doctor” attires. This is a song that one can use anytime for the children to get up and jump. Not only that, but it is also a fun way to learn numbers unto 5; and the children had a great deal of fun learning this rhyme in an interactive way.

We all know that “Prevention is better than cure”. In order to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, a regular medical check up is very essential to detect problems early.

Just as the beginning of pre-school is a big step for the child, the pre-school medical check-up is also a big one. The students of Playgroup & Nursery had a thorough medical and dental examination by Dr. Purvi Mehta & Dr Viral Parikh respectively, on 8th & 9th September 2011.

This will serve as a personal medical record for future reference to parents as well.

On behalf of WIS, we would like to thank both the doctor’s for lending us their precious time out of their busy schedule.

“Instead of celebrating my B’day separately It would be my proud privilege it is observed as  TEACHER’S day”              -Dr. Sarvapalli  Radhakrishnan

In India 5th September is celebrated as Teachers' day as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society. 5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, and was the well-known diplomat, scholar, the President of India and above all a teacher. When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the President of India in 1962, he was approached by some of his students and friends and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his "birthday". In reply, Dr. Radhakrishnan said, "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers' day". The request showed Dr. Radhakrishnan's love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers' Day in India.

Teachers are an inevitable part of our lives. They play a significant role in the formative years of the  development of a child, in one way or the other. When we are young, our teachers play the role of 'second parent', taking care of us and showing us the right path to success. When we grow older, they help us achieve our targeted goals and guide us in such a way that life's toughest challenges seem easier to accomplish. They prove to be a moral guide for us. They recognize the talents of their students, sharpen it, and give it a proper shape, which can prove productive. Teachers have an influencing role in the life of every student. They are like beacons of light, guiding us in the formative years of our life. Teachers mould us and in the process and shape our future. What we learn from our teachers remains with us, throughout our life. However, very often, we fail to show our appreciation and gratitude for their altruistic devotion.

T is for talented that you surely are
E is for explaining so patiently
A is for the ability to make the class fun
C is for correcting us when we were wrong
H is for helping us in every way
E is for encouraging us to do our best
R is for rare, there is only one of you!
So thank you special teacher; we think you’re great too.
