The children put up an excellent show of talent, skill, coordination and cooperation. The stage came alive with the dances and, the props and lights added to the magical experience. It was an excellent show with the students at their colourful best.

carnival – ‘Knowledge Infinite’. The chief guest on that day was Shri Krishnam Raju, Chairman Suchitra Group. The G uest was accorded a warm welcome by the children of the school. Each class had done up the classroom based on various themes. Grade IVA had focused on the amusing English vocabulary, while grade VIIA familiarized you with the genius of Shakespeare. Grade VA took one back to the Mughal era while VIA amazed us with their Mathematics in monuments! Other exhibits like the Egypt room, took the visitors back in time, while the scientists and their inventions motivated the students. Hindi and Telugu plays were also staged. The Hindi play highlighted the need to eradicate corruption whereas the Telugu play depicted Krishnadev Raya’s majestic courtroom.

They mesmerized everyone by playing and singing the classic all time favourites. Students of grades IV-X displayed their karate skills through the various katas.

A blood donation camp was also organized in the school by the Lions Club. This got a very good response from the parents as well as the teachers.      

ACER Test

The ACER test was conducted for grades III-X on Friday, 20th November. Many students appeared for this test and the results would be known soon.

 

UPCOMING EVENTS

24th November – Picnic (G IV-X)
25th November – Picnic (G I-III)
Dear Parents as part of our conviction and policy of ‘no-child-left-behind’ we are committed to make each single child participate in our programmes, hence Founder’s Day had to be spread over 2+1 day.

( Pre-Primary makes a presentation on Saturday 21st Nov.)

On 15th it was Grade I to III, 16th was Grade IV to X.

I am sure you can understand what a herculean task it must be to involve all 760 children. Some children are bound to get very short stage time for obvious reasons; we can not prolong programmes beyond a point.

This was the best we could have done so please do cooperate and appreciate that all of you got to see your children in action. More than this is not going to be possible please!

I am so grateful to the parents who have sent congratulatory messages and shown appreciation for the programmes. Programme on 16th came in for special appreciation for the novelty of its idea as well as execution. Thank you so much for being such lovely and supportive partners.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey

UPCOMING EVENTS

11th Nov. Wednesday                                         – Diwali Holiday
15th Nov. Sunday                                                  – Founder’ Day Cultural Prog ( gr I to III)

16th Nov. Moinday                                                – Founder’s Day Knowledge Fest ( gr IV to X)

21st Nov. Saturday                                                  – Picnic (G-V-X)

Dear Parents we have Diwali Holiday only for 11th Nov.( Wednesday).

10th Nov. (Tuesday) will be a regular working day. This is unavoidable in view of the preparations required for the Founder’s Day. Please bear with us and understand that we very very rarely deviate from our plans.

I also take this opportunity to remind and reiterate that it is very important to follow school rules, be these regarding punctuality or dress code. We announce the protocols regularly and have these mentioned clearly in the school diary too. It is a known facts that children are not supposed to carry expensive stuff to school- wrist watches, ear rings, pencil boxes, Tiffin-boxes or pens; all these have to be of everyday quality. No school can guarantee that things will not be lost. Yes we shall do our best to curb, control and stop that but more than that ? Not possible. Afterall we all do lose things at home too!

I mention this because, the other day a senior boy (Grade X) who had gone to another school for an Inter-School Foot ball match lost his expensive wrist watch there. Despite our best efforts it could not be located. Would you call it fair on the part of the parents to come to school and raise hell with the PT teacher and Vice-Principal? How justified is it to threaten us with ‘we will file an FIR, and even drag the team of children’? I leave it to you to draw your own conclusion. Such incidents leave a bad taste and one wonders at the logic of things.

So please be cautious about the stuff that you let your children bring to school.

Dear parents I would also like you to know that this year our Founder’s Day is split into 2 days- 15th and 16th Nov. ( Sunday and Monday)

15th – presentation with children of Gr I to III        (For 15th only 2 guests are allowed per invite. Please honor that as we have limited accommodation).

and

16th – Presentation with children of Gr IV to X.

Shortly the invites will be sent across.

Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey

Director Principal, Suchitra Academy
