Rise & Shine

RISE – November 2021

Hello there!
Hope you’re well.

As we tackle the rains and nature’s pauses in our daily cycle, we find that education is again on the verge of changing its dynamics. From online schooling to extracurriculars to a balanced offline and online schooling, policies are constantly fitting themselves to the environments and the kids’ state of mind. Through this newsletter, we take you through how Rhapsody continues to change education with time and make it as valuable and fun as it can be!

Scroll down for some insights and enjoy!
