It’s the season for holiday homework. While most children start their vacation by bringing back a loaded holiday to-do list (some of which are done by parents anyway), the children of Annai Violet Matriculation and Higher Secondary School came home with a neatly listed holiday to-do list – for their parents.

“For the past 10 months, we enjoyed taking care of your children,” begins the note, warmly. Principal Lydia Devasagyam goes on to list the ways in which parents can make the coming 2 months with their children a very special time in their lives.

From tips on bonding to learning the value of effort, from hitting it up with neighbours to sharing the love with pets, this list has it all covered adorably!
