Dear Parent,

Greetings from Welham Boys’! I trust this finds your family and you in the best of health and spirits. 

Pursuant to my letter to you on the 24th of December, 2012, I write to invite you to our Spring Festival on the 12th and 13th of April, 2013 and also to inform you about the Life Skills camp scheduled for the 9th, 10th and 11th of April 2013.

Spring Festival: As has been our custom over the last few years, Welham Boys’ School is hosting the Spring Festival on the 12th and 13th of April, 2013. Parent Teacher Interaction, Community Dinner, the Inter House Music and Dance Competition and Scholars’ Recognition are the important events during the Festival (detailed programme attached). A registration fee (to cover the cost of the festival) of Rs. 900/- per couple will be charged. (Charges remain the same for single registrations as well). Please take note that this registration fee will be debited to your account automatically. 

Careers and Subject Choice Guidance Sessions: Two important sessions have also been planned for the 12th of April- a Careers Guidance Session for parents and students of Classes X, XI and XII as well as a Subject Guidance Session for parents and students of Class XI (*details in the programme attached). As parents, I am sure you realize how vital, information regarding subject choices and careers are to our boys at this age. I am sure you will take out time and attend these two very important sessions.

Talk on Effective Parenting: Raising kids is one of the toughest and most fulfilling jobs in the world. As parents, all of us know to a large extent all that is to know about parenting. In an effort to help us reinforce ideas and get perspective on responsibilities of raising and relating to children, we have organised a talk on 13th April, 2013 by Dr. V. Ravindran on effective parenting. I am confident that this talk will help us to productive parenting style.

Life Skills Camp:  Today our young people are living in an increasingly complex world, which has resulted in increased demands on them, a phenomenon that is directly related to their health, emotional and social well-being. As you are aware, the ethos, regimen and day to day activities of Welham Boys’ School has been specifically designed to impart a holistic education to our boys- an education that gives equal importance to Academics, Sports, Extra-curricular activities, Community Service, Adventure, etc; the end-goal being to mould multi-dimensional young men with a variety of skills and the confidence and experience to use these skills in every facet of their lives. Indeed, this is one of the reasons why you chose to send your boys to us!

To reinforce these skills and bolster these activities, that enable our boys to not only do well in school but also to translate knowledge and attitudes into more positive channels, we have planned and organized a life skills camp at Welham Boys’ School from the 9th to 11th of April, 2013. All students will participate in a plethora of activities, exercises and sessions specifically designed to cater to their needs under the guidance of experts and with the help of teachers. A nominal amount of approximately Rs 2000/- per child will be billed to each student for the same.

Life skills, essential to manage risk, communicate effectively, cope/resolve conflicts that young people encounter in their daily lives, relationship management and interpersonal communication, etc have been incorporated into various sessions, including Adventure Sports, First Aid training, Western Music,  Art, etc. As proved last year, when we introduced this programme, I am sure that this will be an enriching and educative session for the boys, indeed. 

Looking forward to seeing you at the Spring Festival.

Warm regards,
Gunmeet Bindra
