EXCURSION FUN

IMG-20171003-WA0008

In the pursuit of wholesome development for children, we planned another excursion of 7 days to Manali, Shimla and Chandigarh. 62 children had registered for the tour, six teachers and two tour operators accompanied them.  They visited Rock Garden and Sukhna lake in Chandigarh.  Children were amazed at the man-made mazes in the Rock Garden.  Then they proceeded to Manali by road.  In Manali, the kids were excited to see Snow Point.  The chill in the air got them thrilled and the feel of snowfall for a couple of minutes was indeed something they will cherish for their entire life.  The ride to Rohtang Pass and Solang Valley and the stunning array of overwhelming views kept the kids enthralled throughout. They also got to visit Hadimba temple and Vasishta  Maharshi temple tucked in the sylvan surroundings. From Manali, after another long and spectacular ride, they reached Shimla.  This was followed by some sight-seeing and shopping in Mall road.  All in all, the children got to see the bounty of nature in all its variety; river Beas in full flow, waterfalls everywhere, the apple orchards, the high mountains, the deep valleys, fresh and pure oxygen, the clear clouds and the mist that almost touched their faces!!  The weather was just perfect throughout the trip.

It was indeed a memorable trip for Suchitrans especially for Grade 10!!!

LAST BREATH

Beautiful it was, for a while

Until I ran out

Out of air 

Completely out 

 Deformed, I thought I was 

Tiny, fragile and barren

Gasping for air

Just a little bit 

So I can live that one second longer 

Ephemeral, not something I wanted to be

I gave it all I had 

Every joule of energy

All of my frail heart 

And all of me

I saw the halo 

And I knew 

The time has come

Happy, ever after

An ode to Chester Bennington, lead singer and front man of Linkin Park, a popular rock band among youngsters of today who died an unnatural death on July 20th, 2017.

Miss You

This poem is to you, whose songs were the sweetest plum.

Without you, I’d never learn to hum.

Your songs were the ones I always felt,

With them, all my problems could be dealt.

My life would have no emotion, if not for you.

I don’t know why you did it,

And I’m sure you had a good reason.

But I don’t want to listen.

As you’ve taught me,

Over all these years,

As depression nears,

You always have an option.

When you said nobody is perfect,

You couldn’t be more correct.

You said you were holding on,

But you could’ve a little longer.

All I have to say is- you shouldn’t have done it.

You shouldn’t have waited for the end.

For you belong on Earth,

With us.

I just hope you’re happy,

Wherever you are.

Because if you are,

I am too.

Before I go,

I just wanted you to know.

I will miss you Chester,

My love is with you,

Forever and ever.

Dear parents, I have sent a mail the other day regarding turn out and discipline issues. Hope you have had the time to go through it. Kindly make a note of all that is mentioned there. I, once again, seek your help in all our endeavours and I am sure you will pitch in.As usual it has been a very hectic two weeks and we seem to be heading into yet another similar time ahead. It is by choice because whatever we do, we do, with the conviction that it is the best possible way to provide for our children.

Another area where you will have to help yourself and the school is parking issues during arrival and departure times. There is no way the school can provide parking to the ever increasing number of cars. I am sure you would not want us to destroy our beautiful campus for that purpose.

 Then what is the option ?

Well ! as I see it, the only option is to respect what the team of security and our school people is telling you and to exercise some patience and respect for all others (including other parents and school staff). Being rude or abusive or impatient will only make matters worse. Kindly do not park, blocking other cars or our buses exit routes. If there is no place then wait while some place gets done. It will happen, since no one has come to school to stay here. Let’s set good examples for our children. This will help all of us. This is my sincere plea to all.

Warm Regards

Learning occurs naturally when children are actively involved and having fun!!!!

INTER-HOUSE RECITATION COMPETITION

‘Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.’ Inter-house Recitation competition was held on Tuesday ,11th  July.

Kids came dressed in their character and recited the rhymes with self introduction and apt expression and actions.

INTER-HOUSE STORYTELLING COMPETITON

Dear parents the ‘action’ seems endless here at Suchitra.

Next week would be the Inter House Literary Competitions and the children selected, after giving opportunities to all at class level, will represent their houses. Our commitment to provide a level playing field to all, giving a chance to all, remains sacred.

Last whole week all of us have been inundated by news and warnings about the drug menace spreading itself like a virus through schools and children. None of us can sit back and be complacent thinking/ hoping that it will not tempt our children or ever come their way. As parents and teachers we have to play a very proactive role in watching and monitoring closely what goes on in the lives of our children. They are young and vulnerable and need our care, affection and attention.

We, as a responsible school, will be taking up some programmes in the coming days to increase awareness of the dangers lurking in the shadows. I am certain, you, on your part, shall also be more alert and more watchful.

Newspapers and articles tell clearly in what way we can neutralize this threat to a large extent; be it not giving too much money or interacting closely with your kids.

These are tough times and call for tough parenting. At the same time if we are doing our job right there is really nothing to be worried about.

Warm Regards

Fidget spinner – the latest craze

We would like to bring to your attention this crazy gadget that has emerged from nowhere and has taken the children by storm. It started off as being a ‘toy’ that aids students with learning disorders, anxiety, autism and ADHD. But very gradually we are seeing this getting to be a source of distraction in the class rooms.

While the class is in progress student A uses the fidget spinner and in turn distracts not only student B, but all others around him and the teacher too!! This is becoming a regular scene in classrooms. The fidget spinner has been banned in many schools in the US for this reason.

We request parents to read up on this and not just buy it to gratify the students’ urges. It  seems to be doing more harm than good, so says a clinical psychologist at the University of Central Florida.
