“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us"

Student Spotlight

Building Capacity in Students

Field Trips!
The High School Adaptive Program (HSAP) students toured YES bank to understand how different departments work and the varied educational qualifications that employees hold.

The youngest students (The Pathfinders) visited Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya to see artefacts from the Indus Valley Civilization as part of their Humanities unit on civilizations. They then replicated these artefacts in school and set up an in-house museum!

Grandstand Just Got Grander
Over the past term, the Grandstand space has transformed:
We had our first talk show on gender discrimination hosted by students; we had ‘Quiz Whizzes’ - a quiz contest on general knowledge, current affairs and news; and finally, students across school showcased their unique talents at “Gateway’s Got Talent” that ranged from acting to magic and everything in between!

Walk of Art!
Nine middle school students presented their acrylic art work on canvas pieces at The Art Walk @ This Crazy Food Festival, a Mumbai food festival that incorporated an art exhibition, musical performances and much much more!
