NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY
MAKING OUR VEGETABLE PATCH
Now that monsoon is here, it’s the perfect time to introduce the Preschoolers to the science of gardening. Gardening allows the children to learn many life’s lessons.
On Monday 4th July we tried out our “Green Thumbs” to sow some seeds. During this activity, each child was provided with a small plastic cup. The children added soil to the cup, sprinkled seed on top of the soil and covered the seed with a bit more of soil. Each child had the opportunity to water the seeds and then place the cup in a sunny spot. After watering and nurturing the seeds for several days, they can now see what is happening with their cups. Our seeds have started to sprout!!!!
Planting seeds with young children is a valuable life project as that helps them see how seeds become alive! Besides they learn responsibility as they provide daily care to the new plants.
RAMZAN – PARENT VISIT
On Tuesday 5th July we had Mrs. Sherebanu Imani, Taher’s mother from Sr. KG and Mrs. Humera Fatima, Sufiyan’s mother from Nursery visiting the school to describe the holy month of Ramzan, when they fast and give up eating and drinking during the day. They explained that this is a time of prayer and for thinking of those who are less fortunate. Children were also treated to yummy sheer korma by the parents.
We would heartily like to thank Mrs. Sherebanu and Mrs. Humera for spending their valuable time and sharing valuable information on the festival of Ramzan.
VISIT TO THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
The Preschoolers had the opportunity to visit the Chocolate Factory on Thursday 14th July. Mr Ajit Jain parent of Devansh was kind enough to allow the children visit the factory. The children were amazed at where the chocolate came from. They watched a demonstration of how chocolates were moulded, how they were wrapped and how they were packed in the cartons to be sent out. We had many questions for the owner of the factory and learned a lot about the process. It was a very ‘sweet’ visit as all the children got to eat and carry chocolates !!!! Thanks a lot Mr. Ajit Devansh.

NEWS FROM PRIMARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL
FIELD TRIP TO POLICE STATION
The students of Grade VIII visited the Police station at Petbasheerabad on Friday, 1st July, as part of an interactive programme. The officials spoke to them about the way a police station functions. The students visited the control room and other facilities at the police station. It was a highly informative session with the Sub- Inspector where the children asked various questions ranging from their ranks, functions to use the handcuffs and the service revolver. Some were curious about how the control room functioned and how the wireless sets worked. They were excited to enter the cell (the lock-up) and enjoyed the few seconds of getting ‘locked up’. The children were extremely happy to have availed this opportunity as they learned a lot about the police station and the police force.
A Special Assembly depicting the importance of RAMZAN was presented on Tuesday, 5TH July by the students of Grade IV A. The essence of the month of Ramzan was highlighted through a ppt explaining the meaning and significance of the festival. The children spoke confidently discussing the various facets associated with Ramzan.
The presentation ended with a thought- provoking video showing kindness as one of the simplest and most important character trait someone can possess.
Another Special Assembly on the ENIGMA OF SHAKESPEARE was presented on Wednesday, 6TH July by the students of Grade VIII A. The assembly started with a ppt on Shakespeare which highlighted his life and works. The genius of Shakespeare was brought forth with enactment of a scene from the hilarious play “Much Ado About Nothing”. The entire presentation was put together beautifully and effective dialogues brought the characters to life.
As a special activity, grades I to III had COLLAGE MAKING on Van Mahotsav on Friday, 8th July. The mentors and students had a brain storming session and came up with some innovative and creative collages using different parts of plants. It was not only a fun activity but also a learning experience for the students. All the students were proud of their handiwork and posed excitedly with their masterpieces.
An INVESTITURE CEREMONY was conducted on Wednesday, 13th July to invest the newly appointed office bearers of the School Council to take charge. The programme began with a Ganesh Vandana dance.

As you can see dear parents, our calendar is choc-a-bloc with plans for each and every grade. This is what we mean when we say that we are concerned about ‘all around’ development of the child. These are the experiences that shape your child’s thoughts and perceptions. The easiest thing to do is to sit in the class room and teach from a text book. But life doesn’t originate from a text-book!
This is our differentiator!
Please note the following to ensure overall discipline and order-
- Children can not come to school with fancy hair-cuts and fancy gadgets including wrist-watches!
- Sick children are not to be sent to school, at all, be it for a test or a spell bee. There is no half day permitted.
- Please send all the child’s belongings in the morning. It is not possible for us to deliver stuff to your child during the school hours.
- The overall turn out is checked on day to day basis, disciplinary action is taken against defaulters.
- Please speak to your child about how important it is to behave properly in the school bus. The children MUST sit in their allotted seats. Must not get up and walk around. Must not get into scuffles and fights. Must listen to Ayamma. If they are not cautious they can get hurt.
- Second Term Fees has to be paid by or before 31st Later than that there would be a late Fee charged.
- Our School Excursion in October (1st to 7th) to Delhi, Dalhousie and Amritsar is open to grades V to X. 50 children have already enrolled. We can take in another 10. Send in your names at the earliest please.
