Tuesday, 7th October: School reopened on 7th after six days of Dussehra holiday. Students looked happy and fresh on rejoining. Some students were unhappy, for they now would have to get back to studies, and get up early to get to school! Due to shorter days School timings have changed to winter timings. School starts at 8.30 AM and end at 2.30 PM.

My Pet Cat
I have a cat
Who loves to be wet
Her name is Cherry
Who loves to be merry
Her fur is white
She loves to be quiet
At times she snaps at others
When someone bothers
She is a daring pet of mine
Who stays with me all the time.
