Enrichment Activities give a spurt to the learning skills of a child. The child steps into an area of their interest, where creativity is unfettered. Enrichment activities throw open plenty of opportunities for the students, as a natural extension to their scholastic pursuits. It is this interest that sustains the enthusiasm of students to put their best foot forward, academics or otherwise.
Every year, the Students Editorial Entity of Kumarans (SEEK) brings out a magazine called "Gnanamanthanam". Students across classes are encouraged to submit original works of art, creative writing which include poems and stories, reports .The articles in the magazine also cover all the activities that happened in the school, in that particular year. SEEK team members work closely with the faculty members and bring out an interesting edition at the end of the academic year. Students strive to put in their best efforts and use technology tools to a great extent. “Gnanamanthanam” makes a pleasurable read for all Kumaranites.
The cover page design competition is conducted for children of all classes. A panel of Judges selects the best entries and the best designs are used for the cover page of the school magazine.TOP
“The brain - is wider than the sky” – Emily Dickinson
The Kumarans bulletin board is an extension of this quote. Children of all classes bring out their creative skills through pictures, write-ups, and informative material, in keeping with the important events that are happening. Children vie with one another to make their contributions as creative as possible.

The school encourages and provides opportunities to children to hone their creative talents. Apart from the art and craft classes and sending them for various activities outside school, the school believes in encouraging the artistic talents of children. Each year, we have a cover page design competition where children right from Class I to X can give collages, pencil sketches or colour sketches for the notebooks and workbooks. We try to choose design across classes and they appear in the books ordered for the next academic year. Children genuinely feel thrilled and elated to see their drawings on the notebooks used by their friends.
Even the front page designs for the school magazine are done by the students and the designers’ names are published in the magazine to motivate their creativity and give them an incentive to think creatively and differently.
