Namaste Dear Parents,
It’s that time of the fortnight once again when we bring you the latest news from the Suchitra Campus!
News from the PRE-PRIMARY
Kids enjoyed Halloween celebrations, on Friday 30th October. We had cute looking ghosts and goblins, fairies and witches, Spiderman and batman, prince and princesses all around. Kids carried their Trick or Treat bags and marched around the school campus to collect chocolates and candies from teachers.
Through this theme kids are learning about various changes around them and in them. To practically understand ‘change’ an activity on seed germination was conducted on Monday 2nd Nov. Kids sowed various seeds like those of Tomato, Beans, Bottle gourd, Ridge gourd, Chillies and Cucumber. They have been observing the changes the seeds are going through and also taking good care of the emerging plants.
PRACTICE FOR ‘FOUNDERS DAY THEME-END PRESENTATION’
Practices for the Founders day presentation are going on in full swing. We would like to thank all our parent volunteers for taking up the responsibility of getting the costumes done for this event. Thank you Dear Parents you have been a great help and we wish and hope that this strong bond continues and we do the best for our kids.
We have also started work on the canvas painting for the up-coming Annual Feature of Canvas Auction. As every year, we will be having an auction of canvas paintings made by kids with the help of the class teachers. Each class will make one painting and the highest bidder will be the proud owner of these paintings. The proceeds of these paintings will be used to help the underprivileged of the society. Dear parents if there is any organization that you too would wish us to support, please let us know.
It was a colourful morning at Suchitra Academy on Friday 6th Nov. Children came dressed in their colourful attires and looked amazing. They enjoyed making special Diwali cards and paper Diyas which they coloured with bright colours and covered with glitters!! They explored Rangoli patterns and learnt about the significance of the festival and heard story of Rama and Sita. Later they shared and relished the goodies sent by parents.
Winter jackets have been issued please make sure that your child’s name is written inside of his/her jacket.
Tuesday, 17th November – Holiday.

On Thursday, 29th October grade VB conducted a special assembly on the topic MEDIA- AN INDISPENSIBLE NEED. The importance and the reach of the media was portrayed very beautifully and effectively through a skit which highlighted the role of the media during the time of natural disasters. The class also presented a ppt enlightening the students about the facts and history of the media.
On the same day, grade VIA also conducted an assembly on the topic DUSSHERA. The students of VIA dressed up in festive clothes and went back in time to explain the origin and the significance of the festival. Through a ppt they gave information about the way this festival is celebrated in different parts of the country and focused on the traditions and customs followed. The class children presented a beautiful dandia dance to close the show.
On Thursday, 29th October, the students who had gone for the school excursion to Jaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer gave a ppt presentation about their wonderful trip. They spoke at length about their journey, the places they visited, the things they saw and learnt and of course the yummy food they ate. It was a wonderful presentation and the other students were glued to their places looking at the various colours of Rajashtan and listening to the exciting descriptions of the events.

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).
16th – Presentation with children of Gr IV to X.
Shortly the invites will be sent across.
Look forward to seeing you all soon.
Director Principal, Suchitra Academy
