NEWSLETTER 25th March 2016

“Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I may not remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand”

Namaste dear parents,

As another academic year passes by in a flurry of assignments, grades, assessments and evaluation, we are back with a breath of fresh air and once again reminded of our vision and goals.

Education must strive to broaden minds and push towards spiritual horizons. Our journey is an ongoing one and as we strive to acclimatize our aims, goals and methods our students’ voices echo their well-formulated views, their awareness of the community and their pledge to uphold the values.

News from  PRE-PRIMARY

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2016-2017 school year! This is an exciting time for your child, although he/she may be a little apprehensive about going to ‘new school or new class’.  We hope that you and your child will enjoy the year with us.

3087_1270595199622723_4825369379777180253_n - CopyThank you for your patience in the first few days whilst we have been establishing routines for the Jr. KG and Sr. KG children. The children have all settled in beautifully and confidently in their new classes.

We are all excited to commence the new academic year. The children are beginning to establish relationships with their peers and teachers. Your child’s pre-school experience will be filled with personal growth as a thinker and learner. We are looking forward to starting this adventure with them!

734959_1270594812956095_4239275230713858416_n - CopyIn pre-school our goal is to foster behaviours and attitudes that will allow them to become efficient learners for the rest of their lives. They will be expected to follow directions, work independently and with others and take responsibility for themselves. Our goal is to develop good work habits that will help them in the future.

HOLI CELEBRATION

Holi – the festival of colours is one of the most popular, vibrant, exciting and fun festivals of the year and we absolutely love it. Like we say kids are never too young to have fun! On Wednesday 23rd March, to expose the children to various cultures and their celebrations teachers explained the festival Holi and later took kids out to the soccer field with their 941336_1270592142956362_9178615765140253294_n - Copypichkaaris and herbal colours to celebrate the festival. It was an exuberantly lively and amusing day.

Please Note: We will be shuffling sections of the students in the month of June, our normal practice. We need to wait till June as the admissions are going on actively and we do not know how many sections we may have by June.

We do this to balance the numbers, girl /boy ratio, house colours in each class. This would imply that the class mentors too may change. Please bear with us as this is unavoidable and cannot be done now. We would request you to abide by the sections allotted as no changes would be entertained.

In advance I thank you for understanding and cooperating

TALK ON IMPORTANCE OF SCIENCE 12705577_1244203758928534_3447109581433145389_n

On Tuesday, 16th February a talk on IMPORTANCE OF SCIENCE AND STEM CELL RESEARCH IN OUR LIVES was given by Dr P Dasardi, Assistant Research Investigator/Wellcome DBT Fellow at Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore.

He explained with simple examples Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and how natural selection and adaptation is the cause of survival of some species. He spoke at length about stem cell regeneration and multi cellularity and the extensive research being done in our country in this field. He also explained what causes the process of ageing and answered various BRILLIANT questions put forth by the students. This interactive session was amazing, very informative and highlighted stem cell research as the future of medicine.

Gr -X FAREWELLIMG_8717

Saturday, 20th February was a red letter day in the lives of all the students of grade X. It was the day of their FAREWELL, a day that they were eagerly awaiting and preparing for. The air was full of excitement and the students of grade IX were well prepared to give their seniors a befitting farewell. The students of grade X arrived, flamboyant and dressed to kill, and were escorted to their seats by the students of grade IX. The entire MP hall was beautifully decorated. The program began with a few dance and songs followed by a hilarious skit which depicted how each student would turn out fifteen years later.Then followed the ramp walk and the question answer session. Titles like Ms Gorgeous, Mr Bolt, Mr.Rock star etc were given to the students. A beautiful farewell gift in the form of a photograph calendar, which had a collection of photographs of each child collected over the year, was given to the students. They were ecstatic on opening their gift. The afternoon ended with a sumptuous lunch and a dance session. After all this, the grade X students took a round of the school and had a last look at their classroom. A classroom where they studied, played pranks, forged everlasting friendships and had the best time of their lives. Departure was tearful and the students left the premises with a heavy heart.

We wish them all the very best for their upcoming exams and are sure that they would bring laurels to the school.

UPCOMING EVENTS

29th February                    – SA 2 G-I –VII begins
