Sometimes it's lovely to be able to share our work with each other. The Junior Writers Club are very talented. They love writing poetry, stories, making artwork. And they love performing too. It's great fun to have our sharing sessions where everyone brings in something they've enjoyed writing and reading it out to the group. Lots of drawings are also shared.

Here's a poem from Stuti:

My Lovely Mom

Mummy you are a multi tasker who cooks yummy food like a Chef,

You are caring mother who makes me feel happy and safe

You are always helpful in my hard times

Making me disciplined and kind

Energetic you are in good and bad times

Motivating is your passion all the time

A hard worker who helps me in my study

You are my inspiration as you are my best buddy.

And a poem by Arch about his grandma:




A woman I love the most

A woman I respect the most


She calls me gudua

I’m her favourite bitua


I help her in cooking by making dough balls

She treats me with my favourite pudding bowl


She helps me learn Hindi

She wears a big red bindi


She plays Ludo with me in day time

She tells me inspiring stories in night time


She teaches me Sanskrit shlokas

She explains me the power of human -chalisa


When my Mum and Dad are on scolding ride

She protects me by taking my side

Later, she points out my mistake

And I promise her that I won’t do it again


Due to covid-19 we are not together

Our daily video call makes me feel better


I miss you a lot, my dearest Grandma!!
