Namaste Dear Parents

The week has been filled with proud moments after moments! Our students have raised the bar in terms of standard and expectations in everything that they put their gifted minds to.

Please read on for some interesting news from the Suchitra Campus….

AWARENESS PROGRAM ON STRANGER DANGER AND GOOD TOUCH, BAD TOUCH

Teaching preschoolers about stranger danger is very important in today’s times. The preschool teachers are doing this every month in a way that makes the kids aware and wary of strangers without making them overly fearful of every stranger they see. Instead , we teach them to identify and respond to threatening situations.

Teachers also touch upon the topic of ‘Good Touch , Bad Touch’ informing kids about the dangers around without causing any anxiety in them.

DEMO OF SIMPLE MACHINES

Machines are something that students are always exposed to and are always excited about. The theme began with a discussion on ‘What is a machine?’ What is the purpose of a machine? Kids came up with several examples of machines and how they serve the purpose of making our lives simpler. To make the learning more interactive, we had a display of simple machines on Monday , 2nd July where our kids could touch, feel and manipulate the machines.

MOVIE -UNDERSTANDING MACHINES

To make the learning of machines fun, we had a movie screening for our Pre-Primary kids to understand the working of machines.

DEMO ON WHEAT TO FLOUR AND FLOUR TO DOUGH AND DOUGH TO ROTI

To learn the term ‘Change’ and ‘Machine’ better, the teachers on Friday, 6th July demonstrated how wheat turns to flour and flour to dough and dough to roti. Kids practically experienced the changes wheat goes through to turn into a roti.

MODEL UNITED NATIONS

A new chapter began in the ever aspirational history of Suchitra Academy. On Friday, 29th June, children were oriented for the upcoming intra school MUN (Model United Nations) conference. MUN conference is a simulation of the United Nations’ working; it is 36774252_122349298676351_269355927621074944_o

a platform where students learn to resolve conflicts by maintaining peace and harmony. It helps to hone their skills of diplomacy and emerge as leaders.  Students filled up the registration forms and chose the committee they would want to be a part of. The battle ground is ready, but they need to know the hows and whys of the conduct of the MUN, hence the teachers have started to train them. And now we are waiting for the best delegates to emerge who will represent the school in the inter-school conference.

Wherever there was a tie, another opportunity was given to excel. Endless planning went into executing this systematically and the English Department teachers along with so many other supporting teachers were on their toes ! The culmination was by way of TALENTIME – Our annual Inter-school Literary competition. 14 schools, 150 participants and multiple activities ! It was an extravaganza!

We are also heading into another flurry of preparation and competition with our maiden SUCHITRA MUN, for which we expect another benchmark set and another level hit.

It is this quest for reaching new milestones and providing world-exposure to our students, that keeps us charged and ready to meet new challenges head on!

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey.

Namaste Dear Parents,

We are happy to keep you informed about the various events and happenings at Suchitra!!

Please read on how the fortnight unfolded at Suchitra Campus….

NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY

Change is the only constant in this world and nothing else is.  In our everyday life, we observe so many changes around us—of night turning into day, of our piping hot breakfast turning cold before we consume it, of fresh flowers in the morning drooping by evening. While these are more immediate changes, there are also changes that take place over a period of time. To teach this omnipresent topic, teachers used the inductive method of teaching.   It truly has been exhilarating for the kids to learn different types of changes through various activities which, we are sure have triggered multi-dimensional learning in children.

ILLUSTRATIONS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHANGES

Different types of changes like fast change, slow change, permanent change, desirable, undesirable change, etc. were explained through beautiful illustrations such as sharpening a pencil, curdling of milk, burning paper to ash. These activities were done throughout the week to make children aware of how the changes take place around them.

ACT BY TEACHERS-LIFE CYCLE OF A BUTTERFLY

 

To make children understand the life cycle of a butterfly, the Pre-primary teachers enacted the story ‘Charlie, the caterpillar’ on Wednesday, 20th June. This story helped children understand and tell the various stages of the life cycle of a butterfly.

COLOUR OF THE DAY-RED

Colours are indeed the smiles of nature…

red and spent a spectacular fun filled day playing various red colour games. It was indeed a wonderful learning experience for the children.

WATER CYCLE SKIT

On Tuesday, 26th June, the Pre- Primary teachers introduced the water cycle through a skit on the story ‘The life of water-Water which gives life’. Children were shown how the tiny drops go up and form clouds and then fall in the form of rain. They were also taught about the importance and the uses of water.

 

SEED SOWING ACTIVITY

On Wednesday, 27th June, children were encouraged to sow seeds. Children had brought pots that they painted and sowed the seeds in them. Children will soon learn that the plants need soil, sunlight, air and water to grow. They were also taught the importance of taking care of them and to observe their growth.

An INVESTITURE CEREMONY was conducted on Tuesday, 19th June. Mr Kacharu Toshniwal and Mrs Anjali Toshniwal, parents of the School Captain, were the guests of honor. Mr Toshniwal invested the new bearers of the student council. The office bearers took their oath of office and pledged their loyalty to the school.  Yash Toshniwal, the School Captain spoke about his dreams and vision for the school in his acceptance speech. The sombre occasion was marked with grace and dignity. Mr. Toshniwal

addressed the gathering and complimented the school on its various brilliant policies. We are grateful to Mr and Mrs. Toshniwal.

DRAFTING A CONSTITUTION

 

The political science students of Grade XI brought out their artistry as they drafted constitutions for the school in pairs, as a part of their creative assignment for the week. Drafting a constitution for the school not only gave them a better and engaging understanding of their lesson based on the creation, essentiality, functioning and implementation of the constitution, but also gave them a clear picture of the decorum of the school and the vitality of basic rules and etiquette. It also imbibed in them the value of team spirit and co-ordination and the lofty process of accommodating different ideas and mindsets and social contexts into a document that promotes collective good and the principles of fairness and justice going hand in hand with liberality and self identity. The students came up with different and

                 NEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL                 4

impressive layouts and content for their respective constitutions and enjoyed the project as well as acquired quite a chunk of knowledge through this innovative assignment.

DISPLAY BOARD COMPETITION

An Inter-class DISPLAY BOARD COMPETITION from Grades I-XI was held on Thursday, 28th June. All the classes were done up in very appropriate and aesthetic  manner and the effort of the mentors and students was evident. Each and every classroom had a theme which was the backbone of the chart on display.

LANGUAGE WEEK AND TALEN-TIME PREPARATIONS

 

36258393_2179009315447969_8707445897945939968_o

Like every year, we began with the Literary week eliminations this week.  Our objective has always been to ignite and foster a love of words in addition to encouraging children to come forward to speak.  The Literary week is a manifestation of the fact that we walk our talk- our policy of ’No child left behind’ is the unbending truth when

36176462_2179009335447967_3135432795887763456_o (1)

every child is given an opportunity to speak in front of an audience.

Talen-Time, the Inter- School event we conduct every year in July requires us to begin planning early.  This year, a Grade XI student- Anna Joyce Velpukonda designed our invitation to other schools. It delights us that new students have woven themselves into our school fabric so effortlessly by either compeering the investitureinvite5

event or being such an integral part of the World Music Festival that we celebrated in school. It seems unbelievable that they have been here barely for a month!

NAMING THE CLASS

Naming our class is a pivotal part, especially at the beginning of the year! Every year we pick a theme, this year our theme is planets. All our 9 classes have been named after a planet. So here we are all 9 planets set to roll!

As parents and carers, you put a great value on school and education. Please do explain to your child that treating everyone with respect, being on time and in school every day and wearing the correct uniform is important. These are also important life skills. The value you place on these will be the value your child holds.

GREEN DAY

As part of the World Environment Day and to infuse some excitement in the many newcomers, the students and teachers came dressed to school in shades of green on Tuesday, 5th June.

WELCOMING THE STUDENTS

The students looked excited to head back to school after a relaxing summer vacation. They had a lot to catch up on, with their friends and at the same time share how they spent their vacation. The teachers were not behind in sharing this mutual feeling with their students through Quality Circle Time. A welcome gift from their class teacher was enough to add to their happiness for the day.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLY PRESENTATION BY THE TEACHERS

‘BAN PLASTIC, SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT & OUR FUTURE’

Our Pre-Primary teachers enthralled the audience through their special assembly presentation on Wednesday, 6th June. The message to save the environment was spoken out loud through a street play. An old Hindi melody remixed with new lyrics to spread the noble message was highly appreciated.

The students were overjoyed to see their teachers on stage for a change essaying different roles. It was a presentation enjoyed by one and all.

SPECIAL ACTIVITY: TABLE MANNERS

n

“The world was my oyster but I used the wrong fork.”
~Oscar Wilde

Good table manners are a necessary skill needed to feel self-assured and confident in any situation. We therefore, thought it appropriate to give the students of Grades I- V, a practical demonstration of table etiquette. The students and teachers had a sit-down meal in class for their special activity class on Thursday, 7th June                     

WORLD MUSIC DAY

New Picture

Dear Parents it’s unbelievable that the school has worked for barely 10 days (IX-XI) and 6 days for Gr I to VIII…… It’s mind boggling what all has been achieved!

We have class Board Display Competitions done, Elections done, world music day celebrated and there is no telling what all lies in the next few days!

It is this kind of variety that lends vibrancy to the school and students, not to mention the exposure, learning and FUN !!!!

On 12th June, I attended a TOI organised workshop on “My Child Health Care” at Park Hyatt. During the course of proceedings I was pleasantly jolted when a parent came up on stage to share and speak about the positive difference her daughter’s school has made to her child who has some learning issues!

And yes. You are right. She said that her child studies in Suchitra Academy ! You can imagine the pride and vindication I felt for all the time, effort and resources we, at Suchitra, try to dedicate towards making each child feel comfortable, cared for and loved. Honestly it made my day!

It’s moments like these that recharge and rededicate you towards your core values.

Another proud moment for us is that our just launched Grade XI, already has almost 27 children and would soon be a thirty!

It is all thanks to the word-of-mouth praise that you provide us. We are grateful!

Please write back to me of any of your concerns, compliments or whatever that needs to be expressed.

WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHERS

THINKING OUT OF THE CIRCLE

WhatsApp Image 2018-06-05 at 11.38.04 AM

Ms Trisha Chakraborty, Head of Research and Training, conducted an enriching session for the teachers on THINKING OUT OF THE CIRCLE on Thursday, 24th May. This workshop showed the process of brain storming in a completely new light as different and innovative methods of brain storming were discussed. This has helped the teachers to use innovative brainstorming tools to actively and successfully facilitate students in creating ideas and communicating innovations to act on.

As a follow up of workshop conducted on Creativity, teachers had presented the topics assigned using the brainstorming techniques introduced to them. The topics were like 31 days Calendar to become Creative, Makeover of dining hall in 10 ways and so on. It was interesting to see the number of ideas that came on the platform and interesting ways of presentation. It re-confirms that given some thought to the existing matter around us and looking at them from a different perspective help one to start thinking creatively.

WHOLE BRAIN TEACHING

A workshop on WHOLE BRAIN TEACHING was conducted on Monday, 29th May. Dr Samuel Johnson, Consultant Trainer, VIT AP – Amaravati, kept the teachers enthralled between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. as the session enhanced the teachers’ insights to whole brain teaching and behaviour modification.

WhatsApp Image 2018-05-29 at 6.36.35 AM

He focussed on the 3C’s of a healthy working environment- coexistence, cooperation and collaboration. He successfully demonstrated the close relationship between emotions and learning and how the right ‘frame of mind’ is the most important precondition for learning.

 

 

 

 

QUALITY CIRCLE TIME

A two- day workshop on WHOLE SCHOOL QUALITY CIRCLE TIME was conducted on 30 & 31st June.

Ms Maya Menon, Founder Director- The Teacher Foundation, Bangalore, trained our teachers on how to conduct QCT (Quality Circle Time) in class and highlighted its importance in the overall socio-emotional development of a child.  This helps to promote better relationships and also help with positive behaviour management, two of the most effective improvements needed for both learning and the smooth and harmonious running of a school.

JAI TELANGANA !

Suchitra Academy celebrated the 4th anniversary of the formation of Telangana with an extremely educative and moving presentation by the High School Social Science teacher, Mrs. Nayantara Prabhakar. This was

Dear Parents,

You must have been receiving mails from the teachers informing you of the changes in Mentors and Sections too. There have been quite a few changes in the class lists, class mentors and subject mentors too. All these are due to addition of new students as well as because of the start of Grade XI. Rest assured, in no time at all, children will be settled in with their new class mates as well as mentors.

A few other changes would be that from July, teachers will work on 2nd and 4th Saturdays instead of 1st and 3rd Saturdays. Henceforth all our PMIs would be on 2nd Saturday. This has been done since many of you wanted teachers available on 2nd Saturday.

Another matter which has been long  pending due to various logistical issues was having GPS in school buses. I would like you to know that GPS trackers have been installed in all our buses. From 6th June, the trackers will be on trial for timings of each stop and hopefully after a week we will be able to share with you the log in id etc. to let you track the movement of your child’s vehicle and stops.

For all of us, FOOD remains an extremely important area of concern; be it taste, variety, hygiene or nutritional value. Dear parents , if any of you is a Dietician or has M.Sc. in Nutrition, we would like you to volunteer to vet our Fortnightly Menus for us. Kindly mail in to me in case you wish to offer help.

Last year we had introduced 2 special activities LEGO & ROBOTICS and ABACUS. These were paid activities and showed great results.This year too we are going ahead with these. Lego will be for students of Grade I to VIII and Abacus for students of Grade I to IV.The trainers will be here from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on 9th, Saturday to meet parents and brief them about the scope of the activities.

 

As we go along, you will find us doing many new and interesting things, but what will remain unchanged would be our Vision, Mission and Core Values.

Please write in if you have any suggestions.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey

HAND WASHING ACTIVITY

On Monday, 9th  April, ‘Hand Washing’ activity was held to explain to our pre-primary kids that keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. Kids were encouraged to use soap and water to wash their hands appropriately before and after a meal and after using the washroom.

TABLE ETIQUETTES

Whether you are at home, dining out, or having dinner with friends, good table manners for kids are an important part of every meal. When we teach our kids good table manners, we are giving them important tools for social interaction that will serve them for the rest of their lives. On Tuesday, 10th April, teachers demonstrated the right way to eat food and have been encouraging kids to follow table etiquettes every day.

DENTIST VISIT

One of our dentist parents, Dr. Saloni Parekh visited the Pre-primary kids on Wednesday, 11th April, to talk about the importance of brushing teeth. She explained to the kids the right way to brush teeth. She also got a model of the teeth to let the kids have a real picture of the whole set of teeth. Kids also demonstrated brushing teeth using the

model. We would like to thank Dr. Saloni for taking time out from her busy schedule and educating our kids about oral hygiene.

TEETH BRUSHING ACTIVITY

ANYBODY CAN SCULPT!

Grade X had a great learning experience when their teacher Mr. Ujjwal took them through the steps of sculpting- the spatial awareness, understanding the relationships between content, materials, form, composition, context and combinations. The students have begun with junk material and will soon graduate to clay- what a wonderful opportunity they have to explore another dimension of art!

“NEWTON’S LAW SIMPLIFIED!!!!……THROUGH BALLOON RACING

Understanding Newton’s laws has always been a challenge not only to children, but even the adults. Making it simple and relevant is extremely important for the children to understand.
A very interesting and fun activity – ‘balloon racing’ was conducted to help children understand and get a grip on the Newton’s laws. The activity was enjoyed immensely by the children and had them discussing Newton’s laws over lunch and games.

LETS SPREAD HAPPINESS!

Grades IX and X made a visit to Krishna Sadan, an old age home in Medchal as part of their Community Service Programme on Thursday, April 19th . The visit left a deep impact on the students. They were given a history of the place by Mr. Krishna Mohan. They sang for the inmates of the Home- songs that they had been practising for long , bringing smiles to the faces of old people. The visit was an epiphany for many of them leaving them more sensitive to the elderly than earlier. Each one of them claimed to obdurately stand by their parents and elders, through thick and thin. This was our intention- to sensitize these youngsters towards the old!

Dear parents, admissions are going on for Grade XI. We offer Science/ Humanities /and Commerce streams with a fully trained and experienced Suchitra stamped Faculty.

We also have Basket Ball and Swimming Camps (starting from Monday). You may please contact the office for details.

As a pilot project we had introduced LEGO/ ROBOTICS/ STEM programme in ECA as an option. The results have been very exciting and encouraging. We are in talks with the SERVICE PROVIDERS to make it a whole school programme. The possibility and feasibility of it will depend on how expensive or how affordable the programme will work out per child. Once we know the Financials involved, we will get back to you to know your feedback and opinions.

In the end a few reminiscences from my years long ago…..

My daughter would come home from school, full of day’s happenings. Would chatter endlessly. I would be busy cooking, tending to various chores. Pretending to listen but not really paying full attention. She would pause mid chatter, tug at my shirt and say “mama, I know you are not listening”. To this day I wish I had turned my full attention to her and had not been preoccupied. Dear parents, these times with your kids will never return. Give them quality time with your full attention and focus. Put your phone or laptop away, turn to them and be part of their experience wholeheartedly. Talk to them and draw them out or just listen.

Enjoy your time together.

Cheers !

Warm regards

NEWS LETTER 06th APRIL 2018, VOL.7, ISSUE: 171

 

Namaste Dear Parents,

We are happy to keep you informed about the various events and happenings at Suchitra!! As we traverse further into the new academic year, students are busy in familiarizing themselves with the syllabus and the hard work they are expected to put in.

Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra. Please read on for some interesting news from the Campus….

 

“And remember, also, … that many places you would like to see are just off the map and many things you want to know are just out of sight or a little beyond your reach. But someday you’ll reach them all, for what you learn today, for no reason at all, will help you discover all the wonderful secrets of tomorrow.”

Norton Juster

Our main focus in the past weeks has been to acclimatize the children to the school/class environment. Children are learning the school and classroom routines that will be in place all year along.

We understand the mix of excited anticipation and fear that you are feeling now, but be assured. Each one of us teachers is a parent. We all know the fears, the hopes, the problems, and the joys of parenting. Yet we are also Early Childhood Educators. We understand, perhaps better than most, how very important the task of educating the young child is. We want for your children a true education because we know that education is not just what a child learns from reading a book (although much can be learned from reading!) or from memorizing letters, numbers, shapes, and facts (although these are important for schooling). Education is what happens when one discovers meaningful information through experience.

WhatsApp Image 2018-04-05 at 6.56.40 PMThrough this play, your child will grow in ability and confidence to move forward and outward to explore, discover and learn even more. For what your child learns today will help your child to discover “all the wonderful secrets of tomorrow.”

 

We have provided a few suggestions for assisting your child during this time. Remember we will be available to provide support and assistance, to make your child’s first school days happy days. But we need your cooperation and support too.

  • Prepare your child for the school experience by explaining what to expect. Answer all questions directly and honestly.
  • Convey a positive attitude. Young children are aware of your feelings. Your
  • enthusiasm will assure the child that school can be a fun and exciting place. whatsapp-image-2018-04-05-at-7-34-01-pm.jpeg

 

SNACK TIME

WhatsApp Image 2018-04-05 at 7.14.02 PM

Chocolate and chips are not suitable choices for preschool snack times. At preschool, we work on educating the children about healthy food choices, and the benefits these foods have on their growing bodies, so it is important that that their snack boxes have not just ‘their favourite things , but healthy things’ .

Please make sure all of your child’s belongings that they bring to school are labelled and also do not forget to pack an extra dress every day.

STRANGER DANGER (SKIT BY TEACHERS)

Children are innocent and hence, easily trust everyone. But in today’s time, it is mandatory to teach children to not trust a stranger. It is important to teach children that it need not be just a stranger who could be a threat to them but sometimes, it could be a known person too. While we don’t want to scare our kids, the message was passed down Friday, 6th April in a subtle way through an act by the pre-primary teaches. Through this act, we not only covered ‘Stranger Danger’ we also made the kids aware of ‘Good touch and Bad touch’

SPECIAL ACTIVITY

Every day we can find at least one newspaper article, Facebook post or a TV report on bullying in schools. Keeping this in mind, a special activity, SAY NO TO BULLYING was conducted on Thursday, 29th March. This activity was designed to ensure that students understand the seriousness of the term ‘Bullying’ and what devastating effects it can have on someone. The activity ended with students volunteering to start an Anti-Bullying Brigade in the school and they enthusiastically designed badges for the same.

Another special activity, WALL OF FAME, was presented by the students of Grades IX-X on Thursday, 5th April. This activity was an attempt to make the students realize how the staff in their school works to ensure that the best of everything reaches to them. They were divided into groups where they interviewed a member from the Administration, a teacher and the non-teaching staff. The success of the activity proved that the students are now aware of the hard work put in by the Suchitra team. At the same time, their testimonials spoke volumes about the values they learnt from this activity.

NEWS LETTER 23rd March 2018, VOL.7, ISSUE: 170

Namaste Dear Parents,

As another academic year passes by in a flurry of assignments, grades, assessments and evaluation, we are back with a breath of fresh air and once again with due commitment to our vision and goals.

Education must strive to broaden minds and push towards spiritual horizons. Our journey is an ongoing one and we strive more than ever to achieve our aims, goals and aspirations.

Here’s the fortnightly round up of activities at Suchitra. Please read on ……

A warm welcome to all, at the onset of 2018-19 school year!

It’s so great to be back and feel the excitement in the school as the children head back to another great year!

Your little ones are adjusting well to their new teachers, friends, and routine. For some children, this is the first experience away from home and parents. The transition may be difficult. We will, therefore, move slowly until all are comfortable with their new friends and surroundings.

Following directions, listening and becoming aware of those around us will be an ongoing endeavor. Our classroom games and activities are designed to enhance the children’s development in these areas. Painting, gluing and cutting will also be part of our day to day learning. You can talk with your child about the day’s activities and reinforce at home what your child has begun to learn at school. The more exposure your child has to the letters, numbers, vocabulary, and concepts we introduce at school, the more he or she will absorb and retail.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS

Monday, 26th March               : Holiday Ram Navmi

Friday, 30th March                  : Holiday Good Friday

Friday, 6th April                       : Stranger Danger (Skit by teachers)

NEW ACADEMIC SESSION BEGINS

 

Monday, 12th March was a momentous day both for the students as well as the teachers. It was the beginning of THE NEW ACADEMIC SESSION for Grades I to VIII. The air was filled with gaiety as students entered their new classrooms with new and old classmates. The students began the day interacting with their class teacher, making new friends and enjoying many ice-breaking activities.

 

WORKSHOP ON NEW AGE CAREERS AND LIFE

A workshop on NEW AGE CAREERS AND LIFE was conducted for the students of Grades IX-X on Friday, 16th March. Dr Samuel  Johnson, Consultant Trainer, VIT AP-Amaravati kept the audience enthralled between 9 a.m. and 3.10 p.m. as he conducted an enriching session on career counselling and behaviour modification.  He had a grip on the students from the word go. Students are extremely difficult to please and at the same time extremely easy too. It all depends on the approach and initiation. And I must say that he knew every bit about that impact as he had them all hero worshiping him by the end of the day long session.

He made them see a mirror when he spoke about their daily life and routine. He shook them up when he talked about how they respond to authority at home and elsewhere, he touched a raw nerve when he spoke about how they sometimes tend to hurt and disappoint parents and teachers and he swayed them along as he spoke about the immense potential each one has.

He saved the best for the last when he actually showed them all about his own humble beginnings, his reaching exceptional heights, his life’s mission to make people see the immense potential each one of us has!

ASSET test was conducted for Grades III – X on 19th August, 2017. A follow up session was conducted on Saturday, 17th March by Ms Uma. This meeting highlighted the performance of the students and the remedial action to be implemented in the academic curriculum was discussed.

MATHEMATICAL MODELLING

In an attempt to understand how an abstract concept taught on the blackboard can be related to the design of a real object, students of Grade X made Mathematical models and tried explaining the correlation between what they learnt in the classroom and its

practical application in real life. They made models of skateboard floors, bridges, catapults and roller coasters and explained how they made use of polynomial equations to design graphs and then come up with the dimensions of these models.

14thApril, Saturday                 : PMI ( Parent Teacher Interaction)

Dear parents, once again, a very warm welcome to the new parents who have entered our fold. For some of you it might be the 1st ever newsletter but trust us it is going to drop in your mail box every alternate Friday, without fail ! Please get used to that and also to going through the round up of the activities that we send you.

Ideally I would wish it to be a two way process, where you too respond to our mails. Right now most of the time only I seem to be speaking without much response!

This could actually turn into a forum to discuss common concerns and queries.

We have already sent you a mail regarding our expectations about children’s turn out. Please do give it a serious attention as we give a lot of importance to smartly and neatly turned-out children.

We are done with processing the Feedback that you had given on 10th March ( PMI day) and will be sharing the results with you shortly. The results are as usual amazing and there is a very negligible number who have some causes for dissatisfaction. I had once read ‘if you are able to make everyone happy with your work, then there is definitely something wrong with your performance’. So the naysayers are as welcome as ‘ayes’ !  It is impossible to please everyone, but we will not give up trying !

Please feel free to communicate with me/ us.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey
