Story

Sumbandila holiday school, an extraordinary opportunity cherished by our students!

Imagine a week filled with boundless exploration, where learning transcends the confines of textbooks and classrooms. The Sumbandila holiday school, a beloved tradition among our students, offers precisely that – a chance to delve into passions, cultivate new skills, and forge lifelong memories.

Thanks to the generous support of partners like Riverdale Country School in New York and CASH & ROCKET, this remarkable initiative comes to life, transforming the lives of children in our community.

But why is it so crucial? Participating in activities we love isn't just enjoyable – it's essential for holistic development. Whether it's honing practical skills in our maker lab, mastering coding in our IT lab, or immersing oneself in the arts, each experience fosters confidence, social aptitude, and teamwork.

For many of our students, these opportunities are unprecedented. From sports to creative pursuits, from mindfulness practices to cultural exchanges with foreign teachers, every aspect of the holiday school enriches their lives in profound ways.

And the impact extends far beyond the classroom. Through exhibitions, performances, and public speaking engagements, our students shine brightly, showcasing their talents and embracing the spirit of collaboration.

But perhaps most importantly, the holiday school fosters a sense of belonging and camaraderie. As friendships bloom and bonds deepen, our students discover the true meaning of community.

So, let's come together to ensure that this transformative experience continues to inspire and empower generations to come. Your support can turn dreams into reality and sow the seeds of a brighter future. Join us in making a difference – because every child deserves the chance to spread their wings and soar.
