November has seen many activities. There were excursions to Vandalur Zoo, Guindy Park and Crocodile Bank. Also, Children's Day was celebrated as Talent Day, where the children showcased their many talents.

Art & Culture

Art and Craft Activities:

'Art and Craft' is not considered an 'extra-curricular' area at Learning Tree; it is integrated with learning in all the other areas. Children gain exposure to aesthetic principles even as they work on their motor coordination and number skills through selective colouring and painting. They enhance their active vocabulary even as they make patterns with clay, spray-paint, print, make collages, learn origami, or practice stringing and blotting. They explore the working of different implements as they use scissors,  punched design cards and needle-and-thread. Dramatics gives them the opportunity to develop their oratorical and  presentation skills. Regular music and dance classes offer rich scope for developing art appreciation and performance skills. Thus art and craft is woven into the fabric of the Learning Tree curriculum.

Cultural Activities:

Every year, the school organizes special events inside and outside school. These events too are dove-tailed into the developmental curve of our students. Our field trips are not one-off excursions, but the culmination of weeks of discussion centering around the place we visit. Our Annual Concert results in an exciting and fulfilling stage experience as well as learning in the areas of team-work, performance arts, music, time management, etc and concepts like conservation and human values. Apart from these, we also schedule Grandparents' Day, Project Days, an Overnight Camp, and celebrations at school for major festivals and cultural events such as Independence Day, Republic Day, Onam, Raksha Bandhan, Navarathri, Deepavali, Childrens' Day, Id,  Christmas and Pongal.

Talent Day

Talent Day was held on Children's Day on 14 Nov 2017. The children from the primary section had an opportunity to showcase their special talents to the rest of the school. There were some amazing performances by the children and a lot of fun and laughter. The teachers too chipped in with their performances.
