Every year, in the month of December, we celebrate community and education – two of the most important pillars that our founders strived to achieve, in our Founders Week.
Founder's Week 2020
This was a 2-day locally rooted and globally proficient Virtual Fest that included:
Around the World (Bloomingdales Pre Primary)

Locked Up in Lockdown – A series of short plays.
Other exciting events in the Founders Week 2020 were Story Time with Usha Venkatraman; C’est La Vie -Lite; THE VIRTUAL SOUK – the first-ever, one-of-its-kind Online Bazaar; Hats off to You and Characters Come Alive and ACK Family Quiz
Locked Up in the Lock Down
Founder's Week 2019
Jasudben ML Schools’ Founders Week of 2019 was held at the school premises as well as ‘Bal Gandharva Rang Mandir Auditorium’.
The highlight of the week was the staging of Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ by our students of Std. VIII – Std. XI.
The play ‘Annie’ was performed at Bal Gandharva Rang Mandir. This play had students of Std. I to Std. VII. participating in some form or the other. There were approximately 400 students that were part of the play.
Another unusual event was Pater Platter – The Dad and Child Cooking Contest! This contest was so popular that we went on to repeat this online in 2020!
The other equally engaging events included a family dance competition- JML Jitterbug; Thematic Exhibition; Mama-Mia, Mumbai by the toddlers of Bloomingdales Pre-Primary; C’est La Vie by Std IX-XII – ICSE, ISC, and NIOS with the Christmas Party as the grand finale.
Founder's Week 2018
Founders Week 2018 was the first time in the history of the school when such a grand event was organised to honour our Founders. The inauguration of the week’s events was done in a unique way, with dominoes being toppled to reveal the letters JML. Mr. Mahesh Bhatt and Prime Focus’s Mr. Namit Malhotra, an alumnus, were guests of honour at the inaugural. Parents and kids got creative on a giant canvas that stood along the playground. Other events that took place in the week included a Dad and Child Cooking Contest which was a fantastic opportunity for the participants. The winners of this contest got free passes to the World on a Plate event in January.
The thematic exhibition covered topics such as Fairy Tales, Myths and Legends, and Magic. Students and teachers worked hard to put up a grand display around these themes. There were many interactive exhibits that engaged the visitors – there were quizzes, games, experiments, skits and songs. The Parents vs. Students Quiz saw the adults and kids battle it out to answer the question: Does Grey Matter? Maths and Science Games were a hit as usual.
The annual plays were performed during this week as well. We had two plays – Aladdin, performed by students of Std. I – VIII and Merchant of Venice, performed by students of Std. IX-XI.
Members of the alumni got involved this time. Some spoke with the students about the different kinds of career paths they have chosen. Some participated in a special sports meet held for them. An alumni evening marked the finale of the week-long festivities.
