- Team Newton , Science Club
Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning. It is a famous proverb by William A. Ward. The first and simplest emotion which we discover in a child's mind is curiosity. It is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous mind and the ability to seek and acquire new knowledge, skills and ways of understanding the world.
Team Newton Club of Pre-Primary aims to fulfil this curiosity that arises in the children during their foundational stage. Team Newton, as the name explains itself, is the name of the famous legend of Science era, Sir Isaac Newton; a great scientist, a great mathematician and an astronomer, whose curiosity brought revolutions and developed the principles of Science. In this club, children are encouraged to develop their curiosity about the world around them by exploring, experimenting, reasoning and finally concluding their own observations.

Theatre in words of Oscar Wilde:
“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”
Theatre is an art of looking at ourselves very closely; it is a medium to extend from ME to WE. It helps you to discover yourself; it makes you meet the ME that exists in you. It gives you the wings to discover the WE outside by taking the ME along. It establishes a depth of: looking, listening and talking through the medium of art..
It is an improvised medium to let your emotions come out and speak for themselves.
