It was followed by the Principal’s address wherein she elaborated on the three major aspects of a child’s overall development, i.e. Bahu Balam (Physical Wellbeing), Buddhi Balam (Intellectual Development) and Atma Balam (Strength of Our Consciousness). She then introduced the leadership team and the Early Years’ Team.
The parents were made aware of the six areas of Learning and Development. These areas are equally important and dependent on each other to provide a holistic approach to a child’s all round development.
