Each of us is a unique strand in the intricate web of life and here to make a contribution.”

March Flashback

It’s Holi - Let’s Party!
Our enthusiastic Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) organized a Holi party and invited students, parents, relatives, friends and teachers to join in the festivities! Some highlights included lighting the holi bonfire, dance performances by parents and support staff, a photo-booth and mouth-watering food!

Math Event!
The Math department conducted an event where the student objective was to use learned strategies to solve different math problems and earn points to avail a reward! The theme “Relays and Resourcefulness” included activities like “split the bill” and “math pictionary” and encouraged students to be resourceful - ask friends, use technology, manipulatives and math models in a relay format!

Art Show - Collaboration with Professionals!
Gateway’s annual Art Show is soon approaching and a few external artists - Sandeep and Sarah Sheikh Gonsalves of SS Homme, model Carla Dennis, interior designer Renu Chainani Garware, and designers Haseena Jethmalani & Priya Aswani visited Gateway and are collaborating with our students! Here's the invite; we're looking forward to seeing you all on the big day!

Expert Talk!
The Unstoppables, as part of their Science and Humanities unit “Technology impacts the world of work and leisure” had an interactive session with an expert speaker from the field - Product Designer, Shruti Nivas. She took them through the steps involved in the process of designing any technology and also showed them products like a computer mouse, spatulas and juicers and how they were created or modified based on the needs of the people.

Student Spotlight
Building Capacity in Students

Mystery stories - Published!
Students from The Incredibles and The Pathfinders wrote mystery stories as a part of their Language unit “Mystery”. These creative stories have been published and can be found in the school library!

Grandstand Games!
Over the past month, our young learners from The Pathfinders, The Incredibles, and The Unstoppables have been building communication, creativity and other skills by participating in Taboo, Pictionary and Charades tournaments during Grandstand!

Parent Engagement
Building Capacity in Parents

Parent Support Group (PSG)
Continuing with the theme of acceptance, the PSG team encouraged parents to explore how acceptance isn’t limited to the self, but extends to families and the community at large. After a partner discussion, parents concluded that different perspectives in life aren’t right or wrong, but all exist at the same time.

Building Capacity in the Community
