How we organize ourselves

Thank you to all the parents for the positive response and being so accommodating to the rescheduled PTM slots.

This week, we began by understanding what a mission is. We discussed about what our school mission statement says and then looked at the IB mission statement and highlighted what was common between the two.

                              We made flow charts to understand how our school is organised.

To understand further how the different departments in the school work together to achieve our school mission, we interviewed Ms. Nirmala our library co coordinator. We learnt how our school library is organised using the Dewey Decimal system. Ms. Nirmala also showed us the process of how a book is numbered ....stamped....cataloged.... and then finally shelved. 

Our school Library provides information, inculcates ideas, and develops knowledge that is so
essential to functioning successfully in today’s information and knowledge based society. It is
fundamental to our school library to equip students with life long learning skills and develop in them
creative thinking and imagination, and enabling them to live as ideal and responsible citizens. This is what we at  Edubridge want to achieve for our students, and our librarian Ms. Nirmala is helping us achieve it.
We are now working on writing a report to present all this information that Ms. Nirmala has given us.

We also made a graph and sorted the pictures of the various people in school that help us. Some of them teach us, some keep us safe and some of them make sure all is clean for us.

                  In Math, we have began working with fractions. We have learnt what a proper, improper
and mixed fraction is.
