Exciting Fridays with Mainadevi Bajaj International School

Fridays, 1-3 pm

Location: Mainadevi Bajaj International School (MBIS), Malad West

Fridays have become one of the most awaited days of the week for School On Wheels kids.

Mainadevi Bajaj International School (MBIS) has collaborated with School On Wheels for the academic year 2011-12. Kids from School On Wheels will have the unique opportunity to not only learn drama and creative arts from the 11th and 12th graders, but also to explore a completely different environment and build bonds with kids, teachers and other staff members of MBIS.

We hope this will boost confidence and help the kids become poised and self reliant.

Independence Day Celebration

This year Udaan Ghar kids will celebrate Independence Day with kids from St. Xavier's High School.

Kids will be divided into 3 groups along with volunteers from the school where they will take part in loads of fun filled activities like painting, collage making and thumb printing. This occasion will give them confidence to start communicating with the kids from the school and also to understand and observe in an all together new atmosphere.

The day's planning also includes the song, ‘Sare Janha Se Accha’, which will be sung by Hasina, Sita, Jyoti, Kajal and Manisha.

The Independence Day Celebration will come to an end with the distribution of goodies among the kids. We hope this will bring unquestionable cheer among everyone and a boosted morale.
