NEWS LETTER 20th October 2018, VOL.7, ISSUE: 183

Namaste

Dear Parents,

I hope that both you and your wards had a wonderful break. Dussehra is so symbolic of a good beginning and that is exactly what we are looking forward to. All signs point to another incredible and productive term.
As soon as school begins, we will rush headlong into preparations and practices for the Founder’s day program. We are sure that it will be another memorable celebration.
Moving on with the need of the hour, we are also expanding in terms of adding a different curriculum to our base- the IGCSE. Suchitra will now offer CBSE as well as IGCSE Curriculum.We believe that today, it opens the gateway to higher education wider in both our country as well as abroad.Cambridge helps students become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Ready to tackle the demands of tomorrow’s world, capable of shaping a better world for the future. That’s why
success with Cambridge opens doors to the world’s best universities – in the US, the UK, Australia,Canada and beyond.Initially, we will begin with a few classes and slowly in time add more levels.. At the same time, we would like to assure you that we stay committed to CBSE Board too.
Educational trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, largely because they are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is essentially to educate, they can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved. Grades IV and V went to Vikarabad and the rest went to Kodaikanal- what a host of memories they would have made! Parents were overwhelmingly happy with the
enthusiastic and happy tales that the children regaled them with and below are some of their ‘thank you’notes!

Namaste Dear Parents,

We are happy to inform you that Term 1 has successfully come to an end. It is going to be another busy and exciting Term 2, with lots of learning opportunities and new experiences. We know you will continue to work with us, so your child can grow in confidence, with a love of learning and a determination to be the best.

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

SPECIAL ACTIVITY TERM I – 2018

The mark of higher education isn’t the knowledge you accumulate in your head. It is the skills you gain about how to learn. – Adam Grant

We believe that students of 21st century can’t be restricted to unidirectional learning. They need to be exposed to various skill development activities to be ready to tackle any situation they come across in their lives. With the same intention this year in Term I, the THURSDAY SPECIAL ACTIVITY was conducted with a complete focus on specific topics Grade-wise. Here, is a short report of the same.

GRADE IV TOPIC: CREATIVE AND CRITICAL THINKING

Children are not things to be moulded, but the people to be unfolded. – Jess Liar

To unfold the thoughts of little minds and to give them the platform to explore their own creativity, we decided to take CREATIVE AND CRITICAL THINKING as our theme. Creativity is the freest form of self-expression. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling for children than to be able to express themselves openly and without judgment. The ability to be creative, to create something from personal feelings and experiences can reflect and nurture children’s emotional health.

When children were given a challenge to make as many useful items they could make using newspaper within a given time limit.

To inculcate the same in the children we need to give them plenty of opportunities. Hence, we started with a series of activities that were based on the children’s interests and ideas such as- Guess what is inside??? , Shapes and Perceptions, Unrelated Relations, Creatively Use Me, Ask Me Anything, Opposites Attract, Connecting the Dots, Make It Yourself, Total Recall, Crazy Caption, What would happen? and many more. These activities helped children to develop their problem solving skills, developing hypotheses, thinking skills and communication skills. These also helped them develop team building skills such as collaboration, observation, participation etc.

GRADE V TOPIC: MAKE A DIFFERENCE

41450084_2305280762820823_880400589815545856_o

A day well spent with children from two orphanages

 

 

 

 

When a person has high level of emotional intelligence, he empathizes with the people around and realizes his responsibility towards the society. It was a 7- week plan before our students could spend a day full of fun with children from two orphanages. The students of Grades V A and B visited Thara, an organization which helps to take care of orphans on 8th September and the students of Grades VC and VD invited the children of Ayush Nilayam Orphanage to Suchitra Academy.  The day was full of playing games, cuddles and laughter and was a real revelation as to how something as small as a coloring book or ball can make so many children happy!

To make the day memorable for our guest children, our children had put in a lot of effort starting from making greeting cards with lovely messages, planning out games, dance, songs and a QCT session with the help of their mentors.  The students learned the value of sharing and caring for others and we hope that they could make a difference to the children they interacted with.

GRADE VI TOPIC: SPREADING AWARENESS

Children attempting to make the public aware of environmental issues

Initially, all the three sections had brain storming sessions on ‘How to spread awareness and about what.’ The
students came up with different ideas, which included the following:
I. How: 1. Posters/ placards/pamphlets making, 2. Speeches, 3. Newspaper articles, 4. You tube videos 5. Street Plays 6. Radio ads.

 

                 NEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL               3

II. About what: 1. Saving water, electricity and other resources 2. Diseases and Precautions, 3. Protect trees, environment and animals, 4. Prevention of accidents / Road safety 5. Global warming.
The topics chosen were Spreading Awareness about THE ILL EFFECTS OF AIR POLLUTION, THE IMPORTANCE OF SAVING WATER and THE IMPORTANCE OF A HEALTHY DIET – one per section. As part of the project, the students wrote, practised and performed street plays in all the three languages-Hindi, English and Telugu, on the streetoutside the school and outside a mall. They also made charts, posters and distributed self made pamphlets to the audience at the venues of the street plays.
It enabled the students to improve their presentation skills as well as confidence levels.

GRADE VII TOPIC: GREEN SCHOOLS PROGRAMME-AN AUDIT

The GREEN SCHOOLS PROGRAMME (GSP) is an environmental education programme directed to subtly sensitize students towards environment through hands on and thought provoking activities. It is an initiative of the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE). The organization provides a well compiled manual for children to understand the steps easily and take up an audit of the school with the question in mind-“How Green Is Your School?”
The audits in GSP are around AIR, ENERGY, FOOD, LAND, WATER and WASTE. Students of Grade VII were divided into six groups and were given a topic each. Their job was to read the manual, comprehend the instructions and then implement the activities given in the manual. They had to also collect a lot of documents from the school administration to support their report which they arrived at after putting all the data together. The data has now been uploaded in CSE’s website and we are waiting to know How Green is our School.

              NEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL               4

GRADE VIII TOPIC: ROBOTICS

The year began with an idea to expose the children to robotics, which is one of the fast-developing branches of Artificial Intelligence. After a lot of research, it was decided that we should introduce the concept in simple steps to generate interest among the students and lead them on the path of discovery. We began this exciting journey by introducing one of the simplest forms of robotics – THE ROBOTIC ARM.
Children were put into groups and were encouraged to be as creative as possible. Children were able to create robotic arms strong enough to hold and lift small objects. This simple step helped us to generate interest and confidence in the groups. The response was good enough for us to decide that children can now go ahead on their
own, individually.
The next project was to build a BRISTLE BOT. Each child was individually assigned to make one. Maximum stress was given on creativity. Children came up with various versions of Bristle Bot. One of them, Varun Bhushan of VIII B had an idea to use the same materials and build an automatic pencil sharpener. His attempts were partly successful, but this gave satisfaction that we were able to create enough interest that children were beginning to think creatively.
The last project was the ART BOT which the children found challenging, but none the less almost 80% of them were able to complete it on their own. The rest were assisted by their friends to propel them towards success. It was a great joy to see the sense of accomplishment on the faces of our children.
We have taken a small step towards encouraging children to discover. We hope that they carry this attitude home and are equally encouraged by parents.
SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

To ensure that the students get access to the best books for their reading levels and IMG_0083interests a BOOK FAIR by SCHOLASTIC was held on 4th -5th October. It was an exploratory time when kids browsed through books about real-life experiences, fun facts, love and friendship. Popular, age-appropriate titles to engage older readers,
relevant topics and current issues attracted even the reluctant readers. The book fair is on till 6th October so you can also browse through the collection and buy them.

 
INTER-HOUSE BASKETBALL COMPETITION

 

 

              NEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL               5

The much awaited BASKETBALL COMPETITION was held at the school on Thursday, 4th October. The competition was organized to promote the spirit of sportsmanship and to develop the basketball skill among the students. There was a lot of excitement in the air as all the students and teachers were enthusiastically cheering the students.

CAREER COUNSELLING BY THE STUDENTS OF GRADE X

There are many career opportunities beyond medical and engineering. Picking up a right career and understanding a career goal is an initial milestone in anyone’s career. Choice of your career should be scientifically and factually picked based on your skills, ability and interest level. Unfortunately, most of the students are not able to discover
their potential and interests at the right time and this is when the pressure starts building.
43152705_2338358119513087_5543720258398846976_oKeeping this in mind the students of Grade X were assigned a project as part of their special activity. They were divided into groups and each group was assigned a subject- Humanities, Fashion, IT, Commerce, Fine Arts to name a few. As a team they began their research work from the month of July and made their presentation on 3rd-4th October. Each group highlighted the scope of the subject with regard to job opportunities and its contribution to the economy. The spoke about the top institutions in India and overseas along with the cut off percentage and entrance tests to e cracked, if any. This was a good
learning experience for the students as in the process of research and presentation they collected valuable information, made way for collaborative learning and enhanced their confidence levels.
MASTERCHEFS AT WORK!

Our mentors Ms. Gayatri, Ms. Manjeet, Ms. Deepti M, Ms. Supriya K conducted IMG_0041
cooking classes for the cooks at Suchitra kitchen. They taught them the right way
of making Pulihora, Punjabi kadi, Paneer masala, Bagara baigan to name a few.
The teachers have also been following up with the cook in case the dish is not up
to the standards of what was demonstrated. A big thank you to all the teachers
involved in this!

NEW THEME – FARM TO THE TABLE / TRANSPORT


The new theme Farm to the Table and Transport was introduced on Monday, 1st October. In this theme, kids will have fun learning about the work of a farmer on the field and all the food that comes from a farm. Farming is a very important part of our life. Fruits and vegetables come from farms. The milk you drink and eggs you eat come from farms. Grains for cereals, bread and roti come from farms. Kids will have fun growing vegetable packing them and creating a farmer’s market to sell the vegetable. Kids will also learn how transport plays an important role in bringing food from the Farm to the Market.

HEALTHY FOOD WEEK

To make learning fun we organized a Healthy Food Week WhatsApp Image 2018-10-05 at 8.06.09 AMduring which kids were encouraged to get steamed, boiled and raw food. This gave our kids the opportunity
to learn about various ways in which food can be cooked and also identify foods that
can be eaten raw.

Dear parents we live and exist in scary times. And gadget addition is an everyday reality.
You need to let the kids know that it is extremely harmful to chat and be friends with people whom they don’t know. Posting and sharing photographs and personal information on these sites is extremely dangerous. There is no dearth of frightening cases all around. Things don’t always happen to ‘OTHERS’. We could easily be those ‘others’.
I request all of you to please do spot checks of your children’s laptop and mobile phones at home as you never know who they could be following and who could be following them on these sites!
Our students are very dear to us hence this needs utmost attention. I would like to inform you that we have blocked all such sites at school and request you to support us in this regard. The onus is on us to educate them and that’s the only way ahead.
We seek your cooperation and understanding to take this forward. Let’s not forget, we’re in it together!
With the exams just ahead, I am sure you are spending quality time with your children and helping them revise their lessons. Please ensure a balanced timetable and adequate sleep. All the best to the children and probably you too who must equally be psyched up and tense.

TEACHER’S DAY SPECIAL

Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system.

– Sidney Hook

Namaste Dear Parents,

Here’s a letter dedicated to the TEACHERS OF SUCHITRA ! Please read on for some interesting news from the Campus….

STRANGER DANGER

As a routine, the topic of ‘Stranger Danger’ and ‘Good touch Bad touch’ is done every month in class in different ways. On Thursday 30th August, the teachers had a question and answer session with the kids. It was amazing to hear how our kids especially the Sr. KG students came up with answers and ideas on the topic.

JANMASHTAMI CELEBRATION

In order to celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna, a celebration was organized in the Pre-primary section on Friday 31st August. All our kids came dressed as Radha and Krishna. Children danced to the songs of Janmashtami. A ‘Matki Phod’ event was also organized. Kids formed a pyramid with the help of teachers and Madhav from Nursery was our little Krishna for the day, who broke the pot. Kids enjoyed collecting sweets showered from the broken pot. Later kids enjoyed listening to the stories on Lord Krishna.

TEACHERS DAY CELEBRATION


Teachers’ Day is celebrated every year on the 5th of September to honour and acknowledge the contribution made by the teachers in helping and moulding the students. Keeping this in mind, our students of grade XI dedicated beautiful cultural performances to the teachers and it was hugely appreciated by one and all. The students of grade IX and X played the teachers role for that part of the day. The environment echoed with the wishes for teachers, students also got cards and flowers for their teachers. The management of the school was very kind to appreciate the hard work of teachers and they also surprised the teachers with lovely gifts. This day was made special by all the students and the management for the teachers for their sincere dedication and efforts

 

VISIT TO THE POST-OFFICE

Field trips are means of educating students on how certain things work and how we rely on certain services. On Friday, 7th September our pre-primary kids visited the Lal Bazar Post-office. The kids and teachers were welcomed warmly by the staff at the post-office. They were taken around to see how letters are collected, segregated, stamped and then stored in pigeon holes for the postmen to collect. To understand the process better kids wrote a small message to themselves and posted it to the school address. It was altogether a great learning experience especially in these times of email and WhatsApp! It will be delightful to see the kid’s expression when they receive the mail.

Janmashtami was celebrated with great passion, zeal and festivity by the students of Grade IB on Tuesday ,28th August. They played the roles of Sri Krishna, Gopikas and other characters related to Janmashtami. They portrayed various events from Krishna’s life- his birth, stealing Maakhan, Rasleela and Kansa- Vadh. This presentation made the children aware of some of the Indian traditions, customs and culture. It conveyed the strong message of “victory of good over evil.”

LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION

To break the daily routine a ROLE PLAY activity for Grades I to III was organized on Thursday, 30th August. The joy of role play is that students can become anyone they like! A king, a queen or a millionaire…..the choices are endless! Children brought characters from books and history alive with their autobiographical speeches. It was an adorable sight to behold Indira Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda rubbing shoulders with Spiderman, Cinderella, astronauts and army men!

NEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL 3

A workshop on HUMANOIDS AND QUADCOPTERS was conducted at TIME School, Kandlakoya in collaboration with VIGYANTRAM – AAKAR – IIT BOMBAY on 30th and 31st August. Around 180 participants from different schools and 45 students from our school were part of the workshop.

Our students won all the three positions in Quadcopters and were declared the Zonal Winners. They have qualified for the semi-final round at IIT Bombay.

 

THE POLITICAL STRATEGIST

Political Science students of Grade XI participated in a classroom activity: ‘The Political IMG_20180828_101025Strategist’. In this activity, one student (acting as an insider leaking Intel to other countries) had gone missing and the other students divided into the legislative (those chalking out probable areas of hiding) and executive (those carrying out the task of infield search and surveillance) were assigned the task to track down the ‘Insider’ before she shared the Intel. The students came together to think of all the possible places with a logical explanation for hiding, ratified the places with the teacher (who would accept or reject the logic after questioning) and then tried to hunt the traitor. This taught the group, IMG_20180828_095753lessons on how the legislature keeps in perspective enormous personal and impersonal factors while thinking of laws; the power of communication between the legislature and executive; the importance of ratification to add weightage to any decision and the challenges faced iexecuting decisions.

GRADE IV- FIELD TRIP TO PLASTIC RECYCLING FACTORY

We used to be plastic bottles containing flavoured drinks, coke, lemon, and orange that everybody enjoyed drinking. One day, thirsty children emptied our bellies to fill theirs.40466581_2291842120831354_3758449048059641856_n They quenched their thirst and no longer cared about us. ‘

Don’t we deserve a second chance?’ they wondered. ‘And our chance came.’ ‘Look at us! How magic hands recycled us and turned the poor us into little marvels.’

Today we have a serious problem with pollution but we can significantly reduce this impact, just by being aware and knowing that recycling is reuse. It is necessary to ‘Recycle Plastic to Save and Clean the Environment’. As part of the PBL enquiry project- Where does the garbage go? Students of Grade IV visited the plastic recycling factory “Ananya Green Tech” which has the modern infrastructure for reprocessing plastic in an environment-friendly manner.

40407545_2291843484164551_6427406438066290688_nThey learnt how the plastic is dried, melted and formed into granules, which can be used for manufacturing many new products. These granules are then sold to companies to make different products, such as floor mats, tiles, furniture, detergent bottles, pipes and pails. In the process of understanding waste management, our children learnt 3 magic words- Reuse, Reduce and Recycle and its importance. This trip exposed them to some real time experience which no Utube videos could have given. In this Digital age too some things can be best learnt through real exposure (non-hazardous) instead of virtual. And at Suchitra you can be rest assured that safety of the children would remain our first concern and towards this a first hand recce’ had been done in advance.

 

VISIT TO GHMC

The students of Grade IV visited the GHMC office at Chandannagar onWhatsApp Image 2018-09-05 at 6.39.36 AM Wednesday, th September, to understand the working of GHMC as a part of their PBL enquiry 2 – ‘Where does the garbage go?’ and the importance of Swachh Bharath Abhiyan.

The school was gripped with fervor as the students of Grade XI put their best foot forward to thank their teachers for all the efforts that they put in to nurture young lives. The presentation was nothing less than a roller coaster ride with foot tapping music, electrifying dance moves and a musical skit which triggered a laugh riot in the audience.

Dear parents, we are what we are only and only because of the teachers here.

and not pass on our ‘irritations’ to the ones in our care. Please believe us when I say this requires endless patience, training of ourselves, control and restraint. I am sure you, as parents know all about losing your tempers with your own children!

The treat that Grade  XI presented us with will remain with us for a long time.

Just the other day, I was asked to speak about why I am a teacher and this is what I had to say-

Once upon a time we were all small and we all played ‘teacher-teacher’. And then, we grew up ! Period. one wanted to play teacher-teacher anymore, including me. Anything but a teacher ! Till the day the profession chose me by accident, kept sucking me in till I actually realised that is what I was meant to be – a teacher. I am so proud of the work I do, so convinced of the difference I make that I will not exchange it for anything in the world.

— On that note I wind this up, till later.

MY COUNTRY IS BEING CELEBRATED WITH JOY, FERVOUR AND GREAT ENTHUSIASM

The same could be seen in the special assembly presented by Grade III C on Tuesday, 14th August. The children displayed their love and shared their dreams about this country. They urged today’s generation to value the freedom we have secured after the sacrifices of many. The children showcased their patriotism as they sang and danced with pride to the melodious patriotic tunes.

A PATRIOTIC RIOT WITHIN SCHOOL AND BEYOND

Students of Grade IX came together expressing their notions, emotions and patriotism towards their country through melodious symphonies in the forms of a dance, a song and a skit titled “Our Freedom Struggle – Sacrifices Made and Values To Learn.”  Is Independence Day treated as just another holiday? Has 71 years of being independent moved us into forgetting the 200 years of struggle faced by the country and its freedom fighters? These pressing questions moved the audience into introspecting if our needle of patriotism needed refining and oiling. The program ended with the key message:

DO NOT TREAT INDEPENDENCE DAY ALONE AS THE DAY TO CELEBRATE YOUR NATIONALITY AND YOUR CITIZENSHIP!!

The students then visited the AYUSHA NILAYAM ORPHANAGE as a part of their

o1o2Community Activity Service (CAS) and celebrated the rest of the first half of their day with the kids at the orphanage. They made

THE BEST WAY TO BE HAPPY IS TO MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY

2d2Grade II D extended the same thought through their special assembly- HAPPINESS IS VIRAL GO INFECT SOMEONE on Tuesday, 21st August. Through their song, dance and small skits, the children showcased that happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time, but it’s about loving what you have and being grateful for it.

 

SAVE THE EARTH

Students of Class IIE presented their special assembly on the topic SAVE THE EARTH on Saturday, 18th   August. Through this presentation the students communicated that earth must be protected for life to go on. Children performed with the intent to spread awareness about the importance of earth and motivated people to save earth in order to give our future generations a safe and healthy environment.

FIELD TRIPS

WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH THE WASTE ?

To make the students appreciate the importance of environment and it’s protection, they sa1were exposed to garbage management. Towards the same, during the first phase they understood the process of garbage collection at school as well as at home. To move their journey forward, they were taken on a field trip to GHMC dump yard on Monday, 20th August. They visited the dump yard to sensitize themselves about the litter that they generate as part of their PBL enquiry project- “ Where does the garbage go?”

 

                 NEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL                5

They were given a close exposure to different kinds of waste like wet waste and dry waste, its segregation and its dispatch to various recycling agencies for its treatment and reuse. The place was surrounded with a large number of GHMC trucks which collects garbage from the surrounding areas and  gets it to this  central  location. Children found the place repulsive in the beginning, but left with a better understanding about waste management.

VISIT TO EMRI

The students of Grades VII-VIII visited GVK EMRI (Emergency Management and Research Institute), Hyderabad on Friday, 24th August. They were thrilled to see the highly equipped Emergency Response System that coordinates every emergency through a single toll free number 1-0-8 ensuring prompt communication and activation of a response along with a well trained Emergency Medical Technician to

render quality pre-hospital care and transport of the patient to the appropriate health care facility.  This helped them understand why 108 has been acknowledged as the most efficient, speedy, reliable and caring service provider in its category.

 

SPECIAL ACTIVITY

Story telling has been an integral part of our childhood. To keep the tradition going and to incite curiosity and the love for reading in children, a story telling session by parents was conducted on Thursday, 23rd August as a part of the special activity. Parents of WhatsApp Image 2018-08-23 at 17.54.09Grade I-III volunteered to narrate stories to our children. Each parent narrated a story to a class.

The sessions were indeed valuable and distinct. Children found it really interesting and were engrossed in the story of “Water” which was told to them with creative gestures and facial expressions. The appropriate use of voice modulation and body language infused passion, enhanced imagination, expression and introduced children to new horizons of storytelling.  Each story concluded with a moral highlighting different values of life.

Dear parents, we are overwhelmed with the alacrity and the magnanimity with which you responded- what started as a trickle in the morning continued with parents dropping in through the day contributing abundantly to the cause. Just looking at the packages wrapped up carefully made one understand how much effort had been put into the task!k2

Dear parents on Friday, 10th August I attended a Conference in Taj Krishna, organised by Trailblazers an Adventure Travel Group operating out of Mumbai.

As an educator who believes that our kids learn more out of life than in the classroom, I found Trailblazer’s mission of using the adventure activities as a basis of learning skills and life, fascinating. The more I interacted with the team, the more impressed I was with their research, expertise and passion.

I do hope that in future we would use their services to enhance learning and adaptability in our students.

I had sought a feedback from our children with regard to their favourite destination for an Excursion during the October Holidays. Kodaikanal has emerged as the winner! So we are going ahead and finalizing KODAIKANAL as the place for our annual Term Break excursion for Grades VI to XI. We are sending Consent slips for you to fill up and return by Monday along with the first installment of Rs. 15,000/-.

We have planned an adventure outbound program for Grades IV and V at the same time, the cost of the program is Rs. 3850/-. It’s a one night out bound program at Vikarabad. We are sending consent slips for you to fill up and return by Monday.

Dear Parents right now all our energies are directed towards the upcoming MUN and of course keeping the Academics and ECA ends going smoothly too.

Here I would like to share our efforts regarding ECA. Since last year we have put stringent measures in place to supervise as well as improve the quality of ECA experience of students.

 

– Additional assistant coaches have been hired.

– Groupings are much smaller.

– Regular monitoring is done.

– Rubrics are laid down for charting of growth and learning

– Regular meetings are conducted with the coaches and feedback provided.

 

In other words ECA is taken by us in a very organized and result driven format. Yet, the fact remains that each child can get only limited exposure and opportunities. You are requested to set your expectations accordingly and not look for immediate results and achievements.

Actually all our efforts have borne fruit and I must also admit that lately we rarely get any complaints from you regarding ECA. So thanks for that.

I had sent out a request for Sponsors for our MUN and I am still awaiting responses.

We very regularly put up photos and videos on our Facebook  page. Please do visit and ‘like’ us too.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey

Director Principal, Suchitra Academy

Namaste Dear Parents,

Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra.

AWARENESS ON ‘STRANGER DANGER AND GOOD TOUCH BAD TOUCH’

sd 4

To understand the notion of ‘Stranger Danger’ better sd1kids were given various scenarios for role play like ‘the child is home alone and doorbell rings’ or ‘the child is at the playground when an unfamiliar adult calls out to her/him by the name’. The purpose of the role play was to teach our kids how to react when approached by a stranger. The kids were also briefed on the good touch and bad touch.

INTRODUCTION OF THEME- ‘DISCOVERY OF INDIA AND PEOPLE WHO HELP US’

IMG-0716

On Tuesday, 7th August our new theme ‘Discovery of India and People who help us’ was introduced. In this theme, kids will be gaining some interesting information about India while enjoying a range of fun facts. Kids will learn about a few freedom fighters and our national leaders.

Kids will also learn about ‘People who Help us’. Learning about this topic helps kids to make connections between themselves and the outside world. This topic aims to make them more aware of different jobs and roles people take on in their own homes, in school and in their community. The topic also provides key life skills for children (for example, knowing how to dial the emergency services, who to ask if they get lost, etc.).

FRIENDSHIP DAY CELEBRATION

“The only way to have a friend is to be one”. Friendship day was celebrated in IMG_20180803_143707 (1)Pre-primary on Friday, 3rd August to commemorate the bonds of friendship. Our kids made lovely colourful friendship bands using paints, straws, glitters and ribbons and enjoyed tying them around their friends’ wrists. The teachers talked about the importance of having good friends and treating them with respect.

FIELD TRIP TO SARVA DHARMA STHAL

To understand the various religions and cultures of India, and to celebrate the strength of our nation to stay united beyond differences, our children were taken on a field trip to AOC Sarv Dharm Sthal on Friday, 10th August.
