Dear Parents,                                                                                              

Oakwoods Universal welcomes all students and parents to yet another exciting year. We are looking forward to a very fruitful and productive 2015-16. As usual we continue to strive in our mission to provide the best possible educational program for our students. Our aim is to bring about a holistic development in the child and all the activities will be planned and executed with this aim.

Theme of the year: Global Citizenship – Creating a Clean and Caring World Through Our Classrooms

This theme has been introduced with an aim to foster sensitivity towards global issues in children at an early age. Therefore, we would like children to be focused on gaining knowledge and spreading awareness about the environment and climate change and to understand its implications for present and future generations.We, at Universal, shall endeavour to achieve this goal through our curricular as well as our extra-curricular activities which are designed for students in an age appropriate manner.

School Timings: – Please make sure that your child comes to school on time. All children are required to report to school five minutes before time.

  • The day starts well if children get plenty of rest and have a good breakfast.
  • Make reading a daily habit and limit screen time.
  • Monitor your children’s progress: Don’t wait until Report Cards or till the Visiting Day, to check how your children are doing. Don’t hesitate to contact teachers to find out whether your children are keeping up with assignments.
  • Attend School functions to encourage and motivate your children.
