That Abacus is 25 years 'young' calls for great celebrations. For me it was lovely to be a part of a growing school from RA Puram to Adyar to Perungudi. Setting up environments and learning so many details and be able to work with so many lovely children and adults have been an awesome yet fulfilling experience. I wish Abacus with all my heart and I am sure it will always grow from strength to strength.

School was closed from 17th March onwards in the third term of this academic year 2019 -20 due to the outbreak of the Corona Virus. The virus was first detected in Wuhan City in Hubei Province, China and subsequently termed COVID - 19. It was declared a pandemic by WHO and countries world-wide ordered social distancing and lockdowns to contain the disease. The Indian Government too ordered a lockdown from 17th March 2020. Consequently school was closed on the days, activities cancelled and work set online for children. The lockdown is expected to lift in phases from 17th May '20 onwards.
