What comes to your mind when you hear ‘Performing Arts School’? A place for dancing and singing stars of the future? Well yes, but there is much more to performing arts schools than that. They provide great perceptible benefits, stimulating the body and mind (Apart from being fabulously fun!).

They may spend time at the dinner table or […]

How to create a “no effort” party

If you’ve ever had to organise a children’s party, you’ll know that it is anything but a cake walk. Given enough time, anyone can throw a lavish Cinderella or Batman themed party, or festoon a hall with all things fancy. Trying to come up with ways to distract a room full of overexcited kids, on the other hand, is a task that would make Hercules blanch.  Of course you can fall back on the tried and trusted methods, like pass the parcel or musical statues. But if you want maximum impact for minimum effort, then have a look at our no effort […]
