“The tan will fade but the memories will last forever”
To beat the heat and make learning fun, Seth Anandram Jaipuria School organised a summer camp in the school campus from May 16 to May 21, 2019.Summers are always associated with holidays, travel, fun and relaxation. But it is also a time to engage in different activities. A summer camp offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. Children learn new skills, spend time on nurturing their hobbies and in the process learn to become independent and self-confident. They socialize, make new friends and spend their free time constructively.
Pre-primary students enjoyed their summer camp, where a lot of learning happened through play.They participated in many activities such as Science is Fun, Cooking without Fire, Dance, Skating, Art &Creativity and many more.They enjoyed each day with great zeal.
