NEWSLETTER 03rd June, 2016
Namaste Dear Parents,
We hope that you have had a relaxing and wonderful break. The lazy days of summer are over and the countdown has begun as we are preparing to welcome our students. Making a school welcoming is much more than just decorating the hallways. It’s more about creating an environment where everyone feels the love and we at Suchitra work to achieve this goal.
Here is some great news we would like to share with you!!!
CONGRATULATIONS GRADE X
We are happy to announce a 100% RESULT of our second CBSE batch of grade X. They have passed with flying colours. Theirs and our efforts have really borne fruit !!!!
In all 14 students took the Grade X exams. Three children topped with a perfect 10, six with 9.8 to 9.2, two with 8.8 pointers and three with 7.2 CGPA. Heartiest congratulations to our dear students. We wish them success in all their future endeavours too.
SCHOOL REOPENS FOR GRADES IX & X
The students of grades IX & X were back to school on Wednesday, 1st June, after what we hope was a wonderful and exciting summer break spent with family and friends. The school year is well underway with staff and students once again actively engaged in teaching and learning. We are excited about the educational challenges that lie ahead of us and know you will continue to assist us in our efforts to bring the best learning experience we can for our students.
READY TO WELCOME THE STUDENTS
The teachers are back to school after a relaxing summer break. The school is abuzz with activity. The teachers are gearing up for the upcoming session with fervor. Classrooms are being done up; worksheets and practice sheets are being readied. Various professional development workshops are being conducted in the school to apprise the teachers with the latest happenings in the education field and also to improve their technology skills.
WORKSHOP: KNOW YOURSELF
A workshop focussing on identifying one’s PERSONALITY TYPE was conducted by Ms. Trisha Chakraborty (Head of Research and Training) on 1st June. This session was based on the principles of Myers and Briggs who have worked comprehensively to understand the nature of human beings based on Jung’s theory. Teachers took the Myers and Briggs Type Indicator Personality Test to understand their personality type more clearly. At the end of the session the teachers could relate with their own reactions to different situations and were also equipped to work more effectively among children with a positive team spirit.
WORKSHOP: QUALITY CIRCLE TIME
A workshop highlighting QUALITY CIRCLE TIME was conducted by Scholastic on Thursday, 2nd June. This session provided the participants the opportunity to explore this approach as a tool to develop the social and emotional competencies in children and young persons, namely raising self-esteem, promoting positive behaviour, building caring relationships, enhancing motivation and creating cooperative learning environments. It was a practical, hands-on workshop on how to organise and facilitate a Quality Circle Time in the classroom.
