NEWS LETTER 09th JUNE 2017

Namaste Dear Parents,

We hope that you are enjoying the last few days of a relaxing and wonderful break. The sweltering heat has given way to beginning of monsoons and I do hope that we are blessed with good rainfall.

The countdown has begun as we are preparing to welcome our students. Making a school welcoming is much more than just decorating the hallways, it’s more about creating an environment where everyone feels the love and we at Suchitra work hard to achieve this goal.

Here is some great news we would like to share with you!!

CONGRATULATIONS GRADE X

We have 2 perfect 10s and 13 with the CGPA of 9.4 to 9.8. Heartiest congratulations to our dear students. I heartily appreciate the hard work of our students and the contribution of the teachers and wish them success in all their future endeavours.

SCHOOL REOPENS FOR GRADES IX & X

The students of Grades IX & X were back to school on Thursday, 1st June, after what we hope was a wonderful and exciting summer break spent with family and friends. The school year is well underway with staff and students once again actively engaged in teaching and learning. We are excited about the educational challenges that lie ahead of us and know you will continue to assist us in our efforts to bring the best of learning experiences to them.

READY TO WELCOME THE STUDENTS

The teachers have been back in school since 1st June, after a relaxing summer break. The school is abuzz with activity. The teachers are gearing up for the upcoming session with fervor.  Classrooms are being done up; worksheets and practice sheets are being made; various professional development workshops are being conducted in the school to apprise the teachers with the latest happenings in the education field. In fact there isn’t a moment to lose as they go about their pre opening schedules.

SUSTAINABILITY- IT ALL STARTS WITH US – Water Harvesting.
We, at Suchitra keep teaching our students the value and importance of conserving the earth’s resources. And how better to accomplish the task than living what you teach by practically giving them lessons in water harvesting and composting.  This summer we decided to tie up with the HWSSB and Prakriti Environment Services.  Four pits have been dug around the campus in keeping with the norms required for water harvesting.  Students from Grades IX and X were given a practical demonstration of their curriculum with respect to weather, water quality, physical sciences, pollution, energy and sustainability. In May, Suchitra Academy was featured in Eenadu newspaper for their participation in the Save Water Campaign.

WORKSHOPS

“ICT- A TOOL FOR EFFECTIVE CLASS INTERACTION”

IMG_4924A workshop was conducted by Ms Sirisha and Ms Deepthi on Friday, 2nd June.  The goal of this session was to enable teachers to be sufficiently prepared, confident and competent in making full use of the benefits of the wonderful facilities available both inside and outside the classroom. They gave an insight on a series of ICT tools that implicitly support creative learning and innovative teaching; this has helped our teachers to improve their awareness of the potential of ICT to enhance teaching and learning across the curriculum.

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Today’s fast-paced and team-based work environments call for strong and effective professional relationships. Keeping this need in mind Ms Trisha Chakraborty, Head of Research and Training conducted a workshop on EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE on Tuesday, 6th June. This seminar emphasized the practical application of EI concepts over theory. Taught us how to achieve greater personal awareness, connect with others, manage stress, and engage in healthy conflict and collaboration and to be better tuned to the emotional needs of the children.

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

Another workshop on EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION was organized on Thursday, 8th June by Ratna Sagar.DSCN3738

Mr. Rishabh Khanna, from Les Transformations, Delhi, was the resource person for the workshop. The objective of the workshop was to help our teachers realize the importance of effective communication in the teaching and learning process. The pivotal issues were discussed and relevant measures were suggested to overcome the problems. It was an enlightening session.  The workshop was interactive, activity based and highly inspiring. It also dealt with the ways to relieve stress with proper time management.

 

THE 4 P’S OF PRIMARY MATHEMATICS

DSCN3661This workshop was conducted for mathematics teachers by Ms. Bhavani  Subramanian courtesy  Scholastic India Pvt. Ltd on 5th June,2017. The focus of the workshop was the use of stories in mathematics and problem solving. Teachers were also helped to see the role of pictures and puzzles in mathematics. It was an educative session wherein new ideas were shared to understand the basic pedagogy of math teaching. A lot of emphasis was also given to the pre and post activities to help children conceptualize mathematical ideas.

In addition, several in-house workshops were conducted.- one was on ATTITUDES

conducted by our teachers, Ms Manisha  Sah and Ms Lakshmi showcasing how important it is to work with the right attitude which gives us the motivation to do our best and also bring out the best in our students.

Yet, another on MOTIVATION IN SELF AND STUDENTS conducted by Ms Poonam and Ms Usha Das. These  were  huge successes in terms of both, the takeaway the teachers got as well as the confidence with which our teachers conducted them.

Dear Parents, as you can see we have been extremely busy these last few days, turning students, learning new things, in order to guide your children better. We truly believe that ‘ONCE A TEACHER, ALWAYS A STUDENT’

Communication, collaboration & strong relationships create vital bridges between schools & families.

“There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home and the school that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of humans, are created, strengthened and maintained.” Said Winston Churchill

I am sure we all see the merit of what this means.

The class rooms may have changed for certain classes. Please check the lay out at the entrance. Bus children will be guided.On Monday please see that the children are in school by 8.25. If a little early, you would be able to avoid rush and confusion.

Please ensure proper turn out of your children with regular short hair cuts and no fancy shaved sides etc. We lay a lot of stress on that.

I was extremely glad to see that in the Feed Back form you all had appreciated our somewhat strict discipline policy and rated it ‘excellent’. That shows that somewhere we all agree for the need for certain dos and don’t s being followed in the school and life…

Kindly do visit our Fb(Facebook) page to see the action in school and outside ( Our very very thrilling NASA visit )
Do write in with any concerns or suggestions.

Warm Regards and all the best to another beginning.

NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY

WASHING HANDS THE RIGHT WAY

Children are learning about the importance of cleanliness. On Wednesday, 12th April, an activity on hand washing was conducted to make the children understand the role proper hand washing plays in preventing the spread of infection. Children learnt that hand washing is the most important means of preventing the spread of infection.

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, 6th April. 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 a pledge that they will never encourage bullying in any form and will always raise their voice against it.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLIES

A special assembly on the topic EARTH, OUR ONLY HOME was presented on Friday, 7th April, by the students of Grade III A.  The children highlighted the point that Earth is the only planet in the universe where life is possible and its natural quality needs to be maintained to continue a healthy life. They also enacted a skit on the topic “Save Trees”. They presented the topic beautifully and spoke with confidence. As the saying goes all good things come to an end, the assembly came to an end with a song on “Save Earth”.

 

The students of Grade X presented a special assembly on the topic EARTH DAY on Tuesday, 11th April. The audience was informed about the importance of Earth Day and the need to save the planet. As the finale, the students of Grade V enthralled everyone with their ‘NUKAD NATAK’, spreading the message that even a tiny endeavour would go a long way in saving mankind from disaster.

On Wednesday, 12th April, the students of Grade III B presented a Special Assembly on the topic, BEING GRATEFUL. The assembly focussed on being grateful not just for our lives, parents, people who help us, friends and nature, but also for our troubles, mistakes, new challenges and difficult times as they make us strong and give  us new opportunities to learn. The students sang a song of gratitude and presented a dance on the track “Grateful”. They learnt that “Gratefulness” is a habit cultivated consciously and a muscle built over time. As a famous Roman, Cicero, once said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”

LETTER

HOLIDAY ASSIGNMENT FOR PARENTS

For the past 10 months we were the caretakers of your children. You might have noticed that they all loved to come to school. These little ones enjoyed our care, love and attention. It is because we know that the childhood is the most important period of their life.

You their natural guardian will spend vacation with them for the next one and a half months. Let me share with you a few tips to make this time fruitful and enjoyable.

  • Have atleast two meals together with your children.
  • Tell them 100’s of people work hard to provide you a meal.
  • Let the child understand the ­importance of agriculture and the hardwork of people in the fields.
  • Let them wash their own plate after every meal. Children learn dignity of labour from such habits.
  • Learn 5 new English words daily and list them in a book.
  • Visit 3 neighbors. Know more about them click pictures with them – build a good rapport with
  • Allow them to learn cooking, let children learn to make some cold snacks.
  • Take them to your workplace and let them understand that you work hard to support the family.
  • Try to share stories with them; tell them about your childhood and family
  • Teach them a few folk songs.
  • As far as possible keep them away from TV and electronic gadgets; They have their whole life for that.
  • Look into the eyes of your little ones and thank God for giving you one – which is a wonder of nature. You are only a temporary custodian.
  • In a short while she/he will be soaring to heights where you will have no role to play.

STUDENT’S TAKE ON DISCIPLINE!!

Discipline by teachers and parents is an ongoing topic of discussion – both within schools and in the broader community. Discipline is a complex issue.  We have heard a lot on this from both teachers as well as parents.  But the child of the 21st century who has endless sources of visual stimulation and distraction at his/her disposal has a mind of his/her own too.  And so, we present to you their points of view.  And surprise of surprises, our children showed that they have balanced minds. Reprehensible their behaviour might be, but when cut to the chase, they know right from wrong. So here you have words of wisdom from the mouths of our young ones.

ELISHA SUHAS TEETLA (16 JUNE 2002)Suhas :The truth remains that the younger generation is easily attracted to deviant behaviour. The only reason is ‘lack of discipline’. Most parents let their children choose between right and wrong at a very young age which encourages  them to choose the wrong path Children can be manipulated.  They are too immature to take decisions which might cost them their future.

METPALLY HARSHIT KUMAR - DOB- 13.06.2002Harshit: Children get angry when parents advise them for their good, but I feel they are too young to know what is good for them. For example, given a choice between a healthy salad and a burger oozing with fat, you can be sure about what the teenager will choose.  Therefore, guidance is essential.

Eric: Teenagers are driven by passions and desires. They are immature and they need ERIC VAIDURIAM(23 FEb 02)the maturity and experience of their parents and teachers to influence their lives.  We live in an unstable and dark world.  A person can fall into the world’s deceptive trap if he is not guided well in his teenage years. It is therefore necessary for schools and parents to enforce discipline in order to shape them to handle the big, bad world!

Proteek: We are in the 21st century, but attitude of parents and teachers have not evolved.  Making children independent is now a need, or they will rely on someone every time they have to take a decision.

Abigna: I feel that parents and school must give teenagers enough freedom to live as they like, but not unlimited freedom as then they might misuse it.  They have to keep an eye on their children, but not so much as to suspect them

PARIDHI SARDA (26 JUNE 2002)Paridhi: Teenagers should be given freedom only to an extent.  It is important for parents to set parameters and train children to differentiate between right and wrong.  Children need trust and freedom, but they also need values,education, ethics, manners and discipline.  Every child is not the same, every child needs a different kind of treatment and training for their life ahead.I believe that parents are like guiding stars through the darkest nights that we face. If your parent scolds you, there is so much of love, care and concern behind it.  With freedom comes discipline.  If we demand freedom, we should also maintain discipline.

THEME : MARVELLOUS ME

mybodyThe theme Marvellous Me was introduced on Monday , 3rd April. My body and body parts are the focus of this theme. It’s time to discover what makes our bodies special.

TEETH BRUSHING

The early years in a child’s development are the best time for a child to learn about oral health and develop a positive attitude about good dental habits. We have been talking to our children about why it is important to keep our teeth healthy. With our oral dental activity on Thursday , 6th April ,we demonstrated how to brush teeth and encouraged children to brush their teeth in proper way.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLIES

      UGADI PACHADI-TASTE OF LIFE!!

20170328_084946On Tuesday, 28th March, the students of Grades V-IX presented a special assembly on the occasion of UGADI. The assembly focused on the importance of Ugadi, discussed the meaning of the festival and how it is celebrated in different parts of India. It was an occasion for all of us to learn and remember. The constant mention of the Ugadi Pachadi and the various ingredients that make it,  reminded us of the various facets of life and to prepare ourselves for the year ahead.

SAY NO TO BULLYING

Another special assembly on the topic SAY NO TO BULLYING was presented on Tuesday, 4th April, by the students of Grade IX. The message was to ‘Make a Noise’ against bullying. The students spoke about how they could use their powers for good by standing up to people, being brave, speaking out, helping and being kind to each other. The presentation culminated with a meaningful song that projected the harsh reality that “…….Sometimes words that hurt the most, start as a joke or a boast.”

CLASS GOALS AND RULES

Better that rules are agreed between teacher and learners and best that they are established ‘up front’. The age, maturity, size and purpose of the group is important in this regard.  Keeping this in mind, a SPECIAL ACTIVITY was conducted on Thursday, 30th March. The students across Grades I-X enjoyed as they collaborated their ideas and opinions and formulated class goals and rules.  Giving them a hand in creating the rules made them realize the importance of the responsibility given to them.

Besides, the rooms are air-conditioned and so are the buses. In case of a power cut there is our generator. We plan to run the school till the scheduled dates in April, unless some serious situation arises. We have no plans to close the school early as we see no merit in that as yet.

Kindly help us in maintaining discipline of punctuality, proper turn-out and timely submission of Home Assignments etc. It’s only with your support that we can enforce the quality we want.

We will be communicating what the children are doing at school in our fortnightly newsletters.

Also, please check your child’s diary regularly for important information.

News from Pre – Primary School

Namaste Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that the end of the school year has arrived; time has flown away so quickly.The year’s end always brings with it a tremendous sense of accomplishment. So many things have been accomplished this year. Our students have been involved in an extraordinary number of activities and of course, we should not forget the tremendous amount of learning which has taken place during the year.

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

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:

CATEGORY WINNERS

FORTHCOMING EVENTS

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.

 Warm Regards

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

It is amazing, but it is the final month of this academic year. This year has flown by so quickly and the children have grown so much. The Preschoolers had a busy year learning to read and write. We are so proud of their accomplishments this year and will continue to work throughout February on our reading and writing skills. We are very proud of each child’s development. They have all grown a great deal socially as well. The last few weeks of school are going to be very busy as we are preparing to bid farewell to our Sr. KG kids

Saturday , 4th February Parent Mentor Interaction was an overwhelming day for us. It was great to hear parents, few with teary eyes appreciating the hard work put in by our teachers through the year. We will try our best to work on the few suggestions and requests made by our parents for the new academic year.

THEATRE PRESENTATION

The students of Grades III-IV displayed their acting prowess through the THEATRE PRESENTATION on Friday, 3rd February. The audience was treated to performances from a wide range of styles that made them enjoy every bit of the act. The throw of voice, the handling of mikes and the superb acting of every student amazed the audience.

It was wonderful to see the dramatized versions of ‘Bremen Town Rappers, ‘How the Camel got its Hump’ and Mr Hare and Mr Leopard, which have been a part of everyone’s childhood.

An ART AND CRAFT exhibition was held on Saturday, 4th February. Students were invited to get creative. This exhibition was an opportunity for the students to display their creative side, either through art or craft, needle work, drawing etc. Articles made by students of Grades 1 to 10 were on display. Parents visited the exhibition and were impressed with their children’s work. art

PBL PRESENTATION

PROJECT-BASED LEARNING is a dynamic approach in which the students actively explore real-world problems, challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge.  The students of Grades I-VII made their presentations on Tuesday, 7th February and Wednesday, 8th February respectively. Each class had identified a ‘real problem’ like Child labour, Farm to plate, Social and Religious Reforms, Science of Culture, ‘Are we Sensitive?’ and Celebrating India.  In this process, students also honed their organizational and research skills, developed better communication with their peers, audience and worked within their community while seeing the positive effect of their work.

Dear Parents ,

SA2 and Test portions have already been sent and I am sure you are spending some time with your children to help them revise. Many Subjects revisions have started in school too. If the children have been regular in their study habits, there will be no cause for concern. We have always ensured that we get feedback from you parents- please do have a glance at the last page where parents have commented on the Project Based Learning that was conducted in classes this last week and for which we got an overwhelming response.

Please keep the Portion and Date Sheet well preserved as in the past I have seen kids come to school prepared for a wrong subject on the day.

Warm Regards
