Our Sanskrit Recitation Competition Finals were held on Thursday 11th August attended by our special guest, the Vice Consul of India, Mr Rajeev Kumar and adjudicated by Mrs Indu Balachandran and Ms Chin Wong.  It was a delightful and very heartwarming event in which the children recited with great clarity and devotion.  Well done to all the children and teachers for their efforts in learning and reciting the beautiful Sanskrit verses!  Now for the results…

John Colet School teaches Sanskrit to all our students as part of our core curriculum.  In 6th Class, students may choose to learn French, or continue with Sanskrit, and if they wish, sit an international exam in it.  Mandarin and French are taught as a extracurricula class. Latin is also taught in class time to 5th and 6th class students who have finished the spelling curriculum, and as a extracurricula activity to younger students.

Upper First classes are delighted with their win in the Infants Group Recitation competition.
