Graduation Day

Preschool Graduation, a Milestone worth Celebrating.

On Wednesday, 22nd February, the Sr. KG students earned their moment of honour as they paraded around in their graduation caps and capes. Pre-school had a wonderful graduation ceremony to bid farewell to the Sr. KG kids. We celebrated our children’s achievements and shared memories of their pre-school days. The welcome dance and the graduation song presented by the Sr. KG kids were memorable. The skit presented by the Nursery and Jr.KG kids was a treat to the eyes. The pre-primary mentors sung a heart touching song and bid farewell to the Sr. KG kids.

MEET OUR BOOK SOLDIERS…

DSCN3370.JPG

When did you last see children going around speaking about the books that they have read?  Well, students from Classes VA and VB did just that on Wednesday, 15th February. They went around to Grades II and III to speak about the books that they had read during the library period. They spoke about the book, enacted their favourite scene, recited poems that they wrote, asked their audience to guess and finally told them about the exciting world contained in story-books.

Both sets of students enjoyed the exercise and it seemed a wonderful way to engage students and encourage them to read books.

AFTER AN EXTREMELY EVENTFUL AND FASCINATING YEAR, FINALLY THE MUCH-AWAITED DAY ARRIVED ON 22nd February!!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.” The FAREWELL FOR GRADE X was definitely one such moment. An event organized by the teachers and the students of Grade IX marking the perfect send-off, a beautiful emotional closure.

The evening went past the designs of the beautiful gowns and the fitting of the blazers. It went to a special place, a place that broke the barricades of cliques and divisions. The atmosphere was filled with happiness and celebration, but also mixed with the bitter feeling of “goodbye”. Music, dance and games were a lot of fun. Grade X couldn’t have asked for anything more. They wanted to capture every moment and hence, the endless “selfies” and pictures. The highlight of the event was the Mr. and Ms.Suchitra Contest, where our sporting Grade X participated enthusiastically. After three competitive, yet amusing rounds ParvezShokat Ali Dosani and Ashika  were awarded the title of Mr. and Ms.Suchitra.

The winners of the different categories:

With the last day of classes being today and exams beginning on Monday, the 27th, I want to wish you all the best for the final push.

Without a doubt, this can be a stressful time of year. As difficult as it can sometimes feel, I’ve always believed that a little stress can be a good motivator: if we didn’t feel it, we wouldn’t make the extra effort we need to succeed.

Grade X also is preparing to write their final examinations- I wish them the very best in their examinations and in the choices they will have to make in the future.

Dear parents I once again appeal to you to help us in enforcing respect for school rules and discipline.

When students know that teachers and parents are working together, behaviour as well as adherence to rules improves dramatically.

We have, on countless number of occasions, stressed on the importance of short hair for the boys and two plaits for the girls ( for purpose of their looking neat throughout the day); short nails ( for no dirt in the nails and safety of other children); appropriate uniform and completing the homework in time.

In spite of this, it saddens us immensely when you, parents, show resentment towards the school’s policies and do not help us in maintaining the requirement.

We would like to remind you that the only purpose of these regulations is to instill discipline in your child. Please cooperate.

Although this will take effort on your part, the time you spend building a bridge between school and home will reward you many times over during the course of life. Arguing with the school authorities in front of the child sends a wrong message to the child, which does happen sometimes.

For any issues regarding turn out, hair, nails or wrong uniform, students will be sent back home without any prior diary notes etc.

No arguments and impolite behaviour will be acceptable…. (Pl note the regulation reg hair length for boys is 1 to 1.5 inches maximum). 

Hope you are having a great bonding time with your children and are also looking into the brief Home Assignments given. Please ensure completion of the work.

Look forward to seeing the children as the school reopens shortly.

THE INIMITABLE X – GRADERS!

Class X was asked to create advertisements for unusual products/ unusual advertisements for regular products. And here is a peek into some of  the best ones they came up with!

The students of Grade III visited the POLICE STATION on Friday, 9th December as a part of their ongoing curriculum. The trip was organized to give the children practical knowledge on the topic being done in Social Science “ORGANIZATIONS”. The children observed the functions and duties of a police station. They were curious to know about the working of the organization and came up with many queries which were cleared by the officials. Over all, the trip was an excellent learning experience.

THEATRE PRESENTATION

This week also saw us making our annual theatre presentations.

The students of grades V-VI displayed their acting prowess through the THEATRE PRESENTATION on Wednesday, 14th December. Each and every student of each grade/section participated and presented wonderful plays. The throw of voice, the handling of mikes and the superb acting of every student amazed the audience. It was wonderful to see the shy students deliver their dialogues almost like a professional! The dramatized reading of ‘Bim’s Bamboo’ and “The three Sideway Stories” highlighted the students’ talent to read with interpretative voices and gestures.

SPECIAL ACTIVITY 

As a special activity on Thursday, 15th December, a talk on being SAFETY CONSCIOUS was conducted for the students of grades I-X.

THERE CAN BE NO KEENER REVELATION OF A SOCIETY’S SOUL THAN THE WAY IN WHICH IT TREATS ITS CHILDREN. – NELSON MANDELA

Namaste Dear Parents,

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

NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE MARKET

15036437_1487055804643327_6546850366821485361_n

To understand the concept of growing, packing, selling and buying fruits and vegetables, a mock market was set up in the pre-primary back yard on Tuesday 22nd November. The Jr. KG and Nursery kids packed fruits and vegetables and the Sr. KG kids dressed as vendors, sold the products to teachers and parents. In no time atall all our ‘goods’ were sold and a pity that many ‘shoppers’ had to go empty handed !

TURNING WHEAT TO FLOUR AND MAKING ROTI

On Wednesday 23rd November Through the activity of ‘turning wheat to flour and making roti’ the pre-primary kids got the opportunity to practically observe wheat turn to flour and the flour kneaded to dough and the dough rolled out to make roti. Kids also enjoyed eating freshly made rotis. Dear parents ‘rotis’ get made all the time at home but this time the children were ‘observing’ the effort that goes into it. Hope they came home to you and talked about it.15095488_1487065171309057_2852033240207318006_n

CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATION

A date skipped but not forgotten – Due to the annual function, Children’s day was celebrated on Thursday 24th November instead of 14th November. The Pre-primary teachers put up a dance show for the kids and also showered their love and affection on them by gifting smiley batches.

FIELD TRIP

To understand the process of packing and storing, a field trip to the ‘Ice cream factory’ was organised on Friday 25th November. Kids got the opportunity to see the process of ice cream making, packing and storing and also relished  freshly made ice cream.

MOTHER AND CHILD ACTIVITY (cooking without fire)

Healthy can also be yummy was demonstrated by the Jr. KG kids with the help of their parents. On Monday 28th November, it was amazing to see the tiny tots cutting, grating, pealing, rolling, crushing and mixing to make yummy and nutritious dishes.  Through this activity kids learnt about the various processes involved in cooking.

SUCHITRA FOOD COURT

It was a day not to be forgotten, on Friday 30th November, the Sr. KG kids all dressed in black and white showed their hospitality in the ‘Suchitra Food Court’. It was mesmerizing to see the kids perform their duties flawlessly. They welcomed guests, took orders, served, billed and cleaned the tables and were also courteous enough to ask the guests if they had enjoyed the food served by them. Again this is an effort to build etiquettes, hospitality and eating-out manners in them

Thank you dear parents, for taking time out from your busy schedules and encouraging our kids in the learning process

CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATION

dscn1597Children’s Day celebration this year was belated but a momentous day for the students. Thursday, 24th November was a sight to behold when the children came to school in coloured dresses to be pleasantly surprised by their teachers. The children were amazed to see their teachers dancing to foot-tapping beats, enacting in musical dramas and singing melodious songs. The highlight of the event was our Director-Principal Ms Renu Shorey dressed as an ‘old grandma’ showering her love on the children.

Ice-cream was a special addition to the menu for that special occasion along with the usual nutritionally balanced diet provided every day by the school.

Our students were welcomed and briefed about the activities of the Kutumbam. They sang songs, danced and played games with the children from the orphanage. As a token of love, our students gifted socks and stationery to their new friends on behalf of the school. The self-realization of the fact that how blessed we are to have caring parents and caring school made the whole trip worth it.

Slam Poetry Competition

Chirec School conducted a competition on Slam Poetry ( Performance based poetry) and three students from Classes IX and X – Sarvesh Paradkar, Ashika and Eric V embarked without hesitation on and adventure in poetic exploration and self – expression. Though they did not win any prize, we believe that they were extraordinary in their creativity and expression. Strong emotions were voiced, fears were expressed, and an abundance of rich vocabulary flew as they spoke words chock-full of meaning and message. ENJOY their original poetry that exposes a vulnerability rarely seen in 14 –year-olds! (Poems at the end of the letter)
