“All our handling of the child will bear fruit, not only at the moment, but in the adult they are destined to become.” Maria Montessori
Welcome back after the long summer break. We hope you had a fantastic holiday with your family and friends. A big warm welcome to our new children and their families, we are delighted to have you as part of the Suchitra Family.
Friday 12th June, gave us an opportunity to interact with the new parents and also share the academic and co-curricular framework for the up-coming session.
During the Orientation it was really encouraging to see the enthusiasm of the parents participating in the activity conducted – BEST OUT OF WASTE.
Thank you so much to the parents who made the effort to come and to those who came in time. We missed all those who did not make it.
The school re-opened on Monday 15th June. It was a great joy to welcome the kids, as the Pre-primary section sprung back to life once again with the chatter and giggles sounding all over the block.
We know that you have had some wonderful holiday adventures as we hear about it all the time from your little ones. Great to see children sharing experiences during QCT (quality circle time).
There were also a few tears and sobs as the first timers clung to the parents but in no time atall most of them had got busy with the fun and activities around. A few teary-eyed ones are still there but it’s only a matter of time before they too turn into happy school-goers !
This academic year we have decided to name all the Pre-Primary classes. The theme of the year is flowers and children have already started working on voting for their favourite flower, on the basis of which the class names will be decided.
Learning through activity promotes enthusiasm and creativity among kids. Keeping this in view, we emphasise on free play, themes and innovative activities for learning through active participation.
We have started learning some great facts about human and animal habitats, besides learning sounds and numbers.
Once again we would like to remind parents to send an extra pair of clothing in the kid’s bag regularly and to kindly label all the items.

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Thursday, 11th June 2015, the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL !
Air filled with excitement. Teachers eagerly awaiting the arrival of the students and the students too busy exchanging summer holiday stories with their buddies.
That was the scene in the morning !
The students had a few surprises too. Not only were their classrooms beautifully done up but some classrooms had vanished and some new ones had come up !!! It took some time for them to get oriented with the new layout and it was amusing to see the senior students guiding the younger ones to locate their lost classrooms !
To welcome the students the teachers had planned an elaborate assembly spread over two days presenting interesting skits, songs and ppts based on the core values of the school. The students were overjoyed to see their teachers on the stage for a change essaying various roles. It was an assembly enjoyed by one and all.
As a special activity, QUALITY CIRCLE TIME was conducted on Thursday, 18th June. The students participated in what is called ‘The Newspaper Bucket Activity.’ They focused on and discussed the classroom goals and understood that not only setting the goal is important but it is also important to pursue SMART guidelines to achieve these goals. They understood the importance of goals as a major motivating and unifying factor.
20th June, Saturday – Orientation of new parents ( Gr I to VIII ) from 10.00 to 11.30 ( strictly)

Dear parents I would really wish to see you all on the 20th for orientation.
The meeting would make you aware of the expectations we both can have of each other and give a better understanding of our teaching and learning practices.
