Dear Parent,

As I sit to write this letter, I do so with a great sense of pride that our Platinum Jubilee has been a great success. All reports and feedback bear out my claim. It is with the guidance of the Board, efforts of my able colleagues, and support from well wishers, parents and the Old Boys that we have crossed the bridge successfully, and we are moving from Strength to Strength. I must also mention that our boys have been absolutely fantastic as they have tirelessly striven to achieve the targets set out for them.
 
We have successfully completed a very intensive academic winter coaching camp for our class XII and hope they will continue to work hard and do us proud. The end of this autumn term marks the beginning of the spring term, and we pledge to zealously move ahead to the coming year’s agenda. 

You already have a copy of the calendar from April 2012 to March 2013. You will receive a copy of the new calendar in April 2013. In the interim, I would like to share with you in brief some of the events for April-May 2013. The spring festival will be celebrated on the 12th and 13th of April, 2013. The vacations dates for summer and winter are as follows: 

School closes for summer vacation on the 18th of May, 2013
School re-opens on the 18th of July, 2013
School closes for winter vacation on the 1st of December, 2013 

In addition to our many new initiatives, the school intends to introduce a web based Medicard. When it comes to timely medical care, the smallest detail can make all the difference. Blood group, medical history, allergies are some of the critical pieces of information any medical professional needs before offering the safest, most effective, prompt and hassle free treatment. But sometimes such information is not handy. That’s where the Medicard comes in. It is a one step access card that makes all relevant medical information available to the medicals specialist in an instant. This is especially desirable for our boys who travel out of school for conferences, excursions and competitions. It will prove to be of immense help when your child is with us, and then during vacation when the child is with you. 

As I close, winter has well and truly set in. It is the season to spread warmth and good cheer. And it is my fond hope that there will be plenty of that for your family and you. Wishing you good cheer and a wonderful New Year.

We at Welham look forward to welcoming the children back on the 31st January, 2013.

Warm regards

Gunmeet Bindra
