Welcome to the Oi Newsletter!
While monsoon may have drifted off its path, the theme of our newsletter this month brings some monsoon feels to you.With laughter and gaiety all over, Oi’ites across centres have been busy treading on their path of learning. This year’s Family Day was a fun-filled affair. Centres such as Oi JP Nagar, Oi SR Nagar, Oi Miyapur, Oi Vivekanandanagar, Oi NR Colony, Oi Banashankari welcomed parents and caregivers to participate in various activities that instilled a sense of belonging and love that thrives in a family. Other centres including Oi Padmanabhanagar, Oi Kasturi Nagar and Oi Jubilee Hills, extended the learning by visiting a joint family.
Oi RMV Extension and Oi Alwal conducted role plays to demonstrate how a family is all about sharing responsibilities and cooperating with each other. Essential points such as the importance of sharing work and how no task is confined to one person were explained. With the help of our parent partners the youngest members of our family got to experience and cherish the beauty, love & affection that a family nurtures.

The session enlightened the Managers with the use of key practices in their school daily.
In only a month, Nirmay has transformed from being cranky and clingy, to taking his bag and going inside the school without any prodding. I have been pleasantly surprised to hear him say that he wants to go to school, on many evenings, while at home! He enjoys the outdoor play time and activities at school immensely. I am really happy to hear him recite a few rhymes taught in school. It’s great to see so many positive changes in him.

While playing music on my phone with my child, he saw (>) and a (<) sign on the dashboard and said, this means greater-than (>) and the other means Less-than (<) sign. I remember how confidently he pointed his hand on those forward and rewind tabs. It was such a proud moment for me.

“You’re supposed to write your name on your belongings so you don’t lose them.” This instruction has been taken so seriously by my little one that she literally writes her name on all her possessions...including water bottle, toys, and even our furniture! I hope to see this enthusiasm over her food too.

We are extremely thankful to the staff for taking such good care of her and inculcating good habits.

A HOME FOR OUR FEATHERY FRIENDS
With the clouds pouring down little birds often find it hard to find a warm dry place. Set up a small nest in your balcony / lawn, with twigs and old shoe boxes for your little buddies to come and hide when it pours. Make sure this is on a safe height where other animals cannot reach.
Oi SR Nagar, in association with Telangana Government, Local Corporator Mr. Manohar Kilari and Colony Secretary Mr. C.S.Satyanarayana distributed plants in the neighbourhood and encouraged their students to plant saplings at their premises for a greener & cleaner tomorrow.
