News and Announcements

    Dear Parents,

    Usually this is the time of the year when communication about Shala has been sent to all parents, online registration is open and we are looking forward to meeting our students.

    However, as you all know, this is not a usual year. We are learning to live with Corona virus. In absence of any vaccination or proven medicine, Social distancing is the only tool we have to fend off this virus. Many organizations and schools have chosen to operate remotely. Even those that have decided to meet in-person, don't know how long they will be able to go on like that. In short, uncertainty rules the day and we can't be faulted for erring on the side of caution.

    Through out summer TMS team has been thinking about this and we have made the decision to suspend our Marathi Shala for the year 2020-21.

    This was a painful decision to make. We considered remote learning. However, since most schools will have a full or a partial online learning model, our students will already be spending a lot of time in front of their screens. We did not want to add to that problem by asking them to spend another couple of hours on their devices.

    It really is a difficult decision for Marathi Shala. We will continue to monitor the situation and consider local official guidance. If the situation improves, we will consider starting Shala even mid year. However, in the meanwhile, we encourage all parents to continue to have conversations with their children in Marathi. Remember, the trick is to lead them into Marathi conversation without making them feel it. If you are talking about a topic of their interest, change to Marathi. They are likely to resist the least. :)

    Note that all our teaching material is already available here.

    Please feel free to reach out if you need any help. In the meanwhile, let's stay positive, healthy and use this opportunity to pursue our passions! Wish you all the best,

    ~TMS Team
