Each week there is a theme that is followed and recently it was making and flying kites. Gross Motor skills, hand-eye coordination, following instructions, sharing, creativity and confidence are some of the early year's skills involved in the art of kite flying. Our students had great fun with their kites!

Most Ocean Stars Lanka preschools started on Monday 18th January and those that were unable to do so because of flooding started back today Monday 25th January.

The children were delighted to receive their new uniforms and school bags. Thanks to everyone who has participated in our UK online fundraising events which have enabled our children to have uniforms and bags.

We wish all our staff a successful academic year 2021 amidst COVID 19 restrictions and difficulties.
