Namaste dear parents,
Here is what we were up to at the Suchitra Campus.
News from the PRE-PRIMARY
Last few days offered many rich and exciting opportunities to our Pre-Primary kids
Wednesday 9th July- Mock Vegetable and Fruit market
A visit to the market –whether a supermarket, a local grocery store or a farmer’s market – fills the senses with sights, sounds and smell. The market is a place to build Math, Science and language skills. As the kids are too young to go to the market in such large groups we created a ‘Mock Market’ in the school itself. Looking carefully at and discussing the array of vegetables and fruits, while packing, lead to learning of interesting new words as well. The mock market was not only a part of learning but fun and excitement too.
We thank the staff members of Suchitra Academy, for participating in this activity. This would not be such a success without their help.
The Pre-Primary Kids went on a campus tour to have a look at the parking area. They observed the parking areas allotted to various vehicles, like the two wheelers, cars and buses. Kids also counted the number of tyres in each vehicle and then went ahead counting the buses parked.
Thursday 17th July- Car-Wash
To continue with the activity kids were taken to the parking lot to wash cars and buses. Children enjoyed scrubbing and washing the vehicles. They also got into the driver’s seat to see the steering wheel, clutch, break and other internal parts of the vehicle.
Friday 18th July- Field Trip to Biscuit Factory
Field trip to the ‘Biscuit Factory’ was a treat for the kids. The fatigue of the long journey vanished as they reached the factory. The aroma of baking biscuits was mouth-watering. Children got the opportunity to see how huge quantity of biscuits were prepared with help of machines. Mixing huge quantity of flour to make dough and the process of baking was a great learning opportunity for the kids.
We would like to thank Ashray’s parent Ms. Radhika for making this happen. Thank you Radhika for your kind help and support.

News from PRIMARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL
On Wednesday, 9th July, a special assembly was conducted on the topic E- SAFETY. Dear parents, as the age of the average internet user is decreasing day by day, it is of paramount importance to make them aware of its hidden dangers. The children were explained in details the dangers on the internet and the safety measures to be observed while surfing the net. The dos and don’ts were clearly understood by the children. They understood the importance of being S.M.A.R.T online. Be SAFE, NEVER MEET any online friend in person, DO NOT ACCEPT requests or open e mails from people you do not know, not all information is RELIABLE, TELL a trusted adult.
On the same day grade IIA conducted a special assembly on the topic KNOW SAFETY, NO INJURY. It stressed on the importance of observing safety precautions both inside the school, house and even outside. An informative ppt was shown and the children also sang a song. The children spoke very well and their confidence was unmatched. Good job grade IIA!
Thursday, 10th July was a day to apprise the children of EATING ETIQUETTES. The children were shown a ppt and video clips on the correct and acceptable behaviour at the dinner table. They learnt the names of various crockery and cutlery used and also the correct way of laying the table and holding a fork, spoon and knife. The importance of good table manners was also highlighted.
On Thursday, 10th July, Grade I went on a FIELD TRIP to Anuva Aquarium. It was a totally unusual experience for the children. They got to see various kinds of fish and understood how to care for them. The children were very excited and were full questions, the most important being- ‘What do they eat?’, ‘Where do we keep them when we clean the aquarium?’ and some funny ones ‘ Don’t they feel cold in the water?’
Since Monday, 14th July, the school campus has been a beehive of activity. The preparations for the upcoming Language week are in full swing. The elimination rounds of the various competitions have been conducted and the selected children are busy with their preparations for the upcoming competitions.
Dear parents, it has been our endeavour to let every child have a fair chance to make it to the final selected team. But you will agree that all kids cannot make it to the finals, just as all kids cannot get the rank I or II. Important thing is have they benefitted, learnt and grown in this process.
Some of the events like One-Act play are not available to certain classes for various unavoidable reasons. We are aware of this and shall be attending to this at some later date. Giving equal opportunity to all is NOT AN EMPTY BOAST of ours.
21st July – Solo and Group Recitation Competition
23rd July – Oration and Extempore Competition
24th July – Poetry and Creative Writing Competition
25th July – Story telling and One-Act Play
– II Term Fees is to be paid before 31st July.
– Avoid sending children with fancy pencil-boxes, stationery, small toys etc. These cause many a fights in the class besides getting lost.
– THE HAIR CUT FOR BOYS HAS TO BE REGULAR SHORT and not with fancy styling or mushroom cut.
– On birthdays only simple sweets and chocolates are allowed.
– Counsel children to not be rough and rash in the school or buses and to be particularly careful in the staircases.
Sincere thanks for being supportive and ever helpful.
