Dear Students,

I am sure that all of you are enjoying the summer vacation. Vacation time is
fun time but you could also use it to do things you had planned to do over the
year. Give a vent to your creative energies. The learning tasks planned by the
teachers for you this summer are aimed at bringing out your innovativeness
and imagination. This is an opportunity to practice your time management
skills with the right measure of fun and work.

Do your work well and get the 5 marks assigned for each subject.
Good luck and happy holidays. Look forward to meeting you when the school
reopens on Thursday, July 1, 2010
