    Parenting Workshop (Pre-primary and Primary) The Parents of Nigdi Branch again got a

    taste of a session in positive parenting where parents were asked to reflect and introspect how a child and parent come to an argument or disagreement and were demonstrated tips to develop positive strokes and get the child accept parental guidance more readily. Through group discussions, real time situational role plays and sharing parents were shown how a traditional approach towards disciplining a child backfires and an assertive adult's language was demonstrated where parents felt that this can be readily accepted by their children in creating a better environment at home, in studies and for eating habits too. The Session was conducted for Pre primary and primary groups separately on 17th and 24th September by Ms Krithika Padmanabhan who has been conducting several parenting workshops at the branch and in several parts of the country as a clinical and behavioral therapist, psychiatrist and psychologist.

    September we put these waste in the Composting Bin with the Bio Culture to be converted into compost after 70 days. Principal Ma'am had organised a workshop for all teachers and maids to understand how to use

    the composting bin, what the proportion of using the bio culture is and how much of wet and dry waste collected from classrooms must be put in the bins for the decomposing and the composting to begin. After training, live demonstration was done and 6 composting bins have been started on the floors of the school.

    I started with Delhi Public school as a Pre-Primary Teacher. Though I had an option to be a Primary Teacher at the start but being a pre primary teacher was my choice. I lived that. I loved each day.

    I remember the first day of my school as a teacher; I entered the class of 56 students. I was taken aback but somehow taught them for the day. The next day I decided not to go to school as I was scared that I won't be able to manage so many students. But my colleagues called me up and told how students enquired about me. So I gathered my strength and went to school. I entered
