        At the junior wing the aquarium and the various fishes in it was a major point of attraction for the children. The newly painted walls at the UKG play area and the sandpit with the toys in it were their other favourite places.

        During their long walk they stopped to check the tall trees, the seasonal flowering plants like dahlias, bright and big, the different parts of the school building, Junior Wing as well as the senior wing and the play areas. They were fascinated by the hockey field, skating rink, the lawn tennis, basketball and the badminton courts. The vast open areas, the rocky terrain and the winding paths added to their imagination. They loved watching the big fountain and were impressed by the grand façade of the school! Ms. Amita Gupta, the Principal, interacted with them and our youngest TAFSians exchanged views with her!
