Namaste Dear Parents,
Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra. Please read on for some interesting news from the Campus….
NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY
Children are not things to be moulded but people to be unfolded
THEME ‘FARM TO THE TABLE AND TRANSPORT’
The theme ‘Farm to the Table and Transport’ was introduced on Monday 17th October with a ‘Wow Factor’ that had changed the very landscape around the classes !
Preschool children are active learners who experience the world through their senses, physical involvement and active play. Through this theme children will be learning the process of farming through practical experience. A small patch of land has been provided for Jr. and Sr. KG kids where they will be digging the soil to make it loose, sowing seeds, weeding and taking care of the crops. We also have various activities like milking the cow, baking, healthy food week and many more practical activities lined up.
Note : Dear Parents if any of you have a farm where we can take our Preschool kids for a learning experience, please do let us know.
Early detection of vision problems is very important and has a considerable impact on the life of children. Poor vision in childhood affects performance in school and may have a negative effect on the future of the child.
Children below six years old are mostly unaware of what a “normal” vision is. They are unlikely to complain of vision problems and hence on Tuesday 18th October it was initiated at Suchitra Academy to check children’s eyes. The doctors have given slips with their suggestions and these slips are attached to the children’s diary for your reference.
Friday 28th October – Diwali Celebration
Monday 31st October – Halloween Celebration ( instruction will be sent through diary for both the events)
NEWS FROM PRIMARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL
EXCURSION PRESENTATION BY GRADE X
Sarvesh Paradkar and Ruchika Agarwal from grade X were amongst the many who enjoyed the SCHOOL EXCURSION to Delhi, Dalhousie and Amritsar. They made a brief presentation on Monday, 17th October, highlighting important details and moments of joy experienced throughout the trip. The itinerary included visits to the Golden Temple, Jallianwalla Bagh, Humayun’s Tomb and many other places. The guided trip allowed students to relive history after seeing the Martyr’s well at Jalliawala Bagh. The trip also enhanced camaraderie amongst students and was of great educational value.
An EYE CAMP was held at school on Tuesday, 18th October and Wednesday 19th October, for grades I-X. This camp was conducted by Sri Sigma Hospitals. Children from all grades got their eyes checked. The doctors gave advice on proper eye care and stressed on the importance of nutritious diet to maintain healthy eyesight. They also issued prescriptions wherever necessary. We are extremely grateful to the team of Doctors led by Dr. Patel Bhavin Kumar, who spared 2 valuable days for us. If you visit the hospital, there are special discounts available on consultation.
PROJECT-BASED LEARNING is a dynamic approach in which the students actively explore real-world problems, challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge. The students of grades IV, V and VIII made their presentations on Wednesday, 19th October and Thursday, 21st October, respectively. Each class had identified a ‘real problem’ like deforestation, healthy eating habits, air pollution etc. In this process,
students also honed their organizational and research skills, developed better communication with their peers, audience and worked within their community while seeing the positive effects of their work.
Students of Gr IX-X visted the Old age home ‘Krishnasadan’ on Thursday, 20th October, as part of the CAS program. Children were very humbled and touched with the presence of old inmates at the home. They interacted with them, sang songs for them and spent quality time with them. Students realized that the most precious and worthy gift they could give to the old inmates is their ‘TIME’ because no one things they are worthy of it. The children also donated a carom board, Chess board and a Tambola set to the inmates. They left the home with a heavy heart with a promise to the inmates that they would visit them again!
Parents, if you wish to visit the place or make a donation, here are the details.
You can support an elderly by donating Rs 3000/- p.m. or 36,000/- annually. For further details, pl get in touch on 8333005264, 8096000008. Website – www.krishnasadan.org
