    date posted:Tue 29 Oct 2019

    When Parents and Students decide where to go to school, they evaluate the quality of life on campus - where they live, what they eat and how they socialize. Manchester International School’s campus life challenged us to create a new dining experience, with a swanky dining hall, kitchen that broaden the food choices, and a variety of seating arrangements. The result is a more lively, comfortable and intimate experience than any other school dining halls in the vicinity.

    Manchester International School is responsible for both nourishing and nurturing its mostly student population. Procured from local sources, our food is as wholesome and fresh as possible, made from the purest, least processed ingredients, for the purpose of instilling healthy eating habits amidst our beloved young champs!!

  • Teachers Day @ Manchester International School

    date posted:Tue 17 Sep 2019

    An act of gratitude is absolute only when the receiver feels the true essence with which the giver demonstrates it. And the giver gets the contentment when the receiver accepts it unconditionally.

    Artistically and meaningfully decorated class entrances, thoughtfully designed class displays, aesthetically scripted cards and thank you notes, added worth to the effort of this great profession.

    The true display of Gratitude was optimized at Manchester International School, when the distance between the teacher and taught gently dissolved with mark of mutual respect!

    The whole day spearheaded by the student Council, had performances and acts by students across the programmes. Each one outshone the other in terms of excellence and quality- budding from the noble gesture of ‘thanks giving’. The post lunch session had sports organised for the teachers; from simple games as Lemon and Spoon race, to Tug of War- all held in good humor and spirit!

    The High Tea in the school lawns was a demonstration of thanks giving combined with genuine appreciation by the Management.

    As someone rightly said, No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another.

    Narrating the mythology of Onam the PYP students impeccably threaded the legend and the performances. Starting with the Pookalam, a decorative design with flowers the audience journeyed to watch Kaikottikali a graceful dance that was both enchanting and elegant by our senior girls attired in traditional Kerala sari along with fresh jasmines adorning their hair making it a wonderful sight for the eyes. The Harvest Dance, blending the rustic music and rapid footwork got the whole applauding and tapping their feet loudly. The Onapattu- Traditional Onam Song, Vanchipattu- song associated with Boat Race, and the Folk Dance added hues and rays to the celebration.

    The Inter house floral Carpet competition for the Senior School, and the inter class floral decoration for the Primary School held in the morning heralded the joyous opening of a daylong celebration.

    The traditional Onasadhya marked the most inviting part of the Onam celebrations. The sumptuous delicacies served during lunch included an array of traditional recipes of Kerala followed from time immemorial.

    The fun filled Inter-house games, Vadamvali (tug of war) and Uriyadi (smashing the pinata) saw the day-long merriment of the festivities coming to a close!!
