THEME ‘FARM TO THE TABLE AND TRANSPORT’

14705910_1449748041707437_4616039437774040539_nThe 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.

EYE CAMP

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.14680492_1448791728469735_7040065322142736930_n

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.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Friday 28th October               – Diwali Celebration

Monday 31st October           – Halloween Celebration  ( instruction will be sent through diary for both the events)

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.

EYE CAMP

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  PRESENTATION

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!

Thank you parents for being there and encouraging our kids. They performed amazingly well and your overwhelmed response brought further validation to us.

THANKING OUR ‘HELPING HANDS’

Through this theme Kids had the opportunity to listen to stories about community helpers. We read stories and talked about the various community helpers that help us in different ways. We sometimes take them for granted and in the big rush of life,  forget to say a special thanks to the people who help us day in and day out.

So on Thursday 29th September, we at Suchitra Academy Pre-school, gifted bedsheets and steel containers to the Aayamas and security, to tell them how much they all mean to us.

We also appreciate all the parents who donated bedsheets for this event. A big thank you to you from us.

Each and every student of each grade/section participated and presented wonderful plays. The throw of voice, the handling of the mikes and the superb acting of every student amazed the audience. It was wonderful to see the shy students deliver their dialogues almost like a professional! Our objective of giving each and every child an opportunity to be on stage and face the crowd confidently was more than met. Thank you Sunita and Aarti for your untiring efforts and putting up a wonderful show within the very short time that we gave you.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

To ensure that the students get access to the best books for their reading levels and interests a BOOK FAIR by SCHOLASTIC was held on Saturday, 1st October. It was an exploratory time when kids browsed through books about real-life experiences, fun facts, love and friendship. Popular, age-appropriate titles to engage older readers, relevant topics and current, relatable issues attracted even the reluctant readers.

INTER-HOUSE KHO-KHO COMPETITION  dscn0008

The final round of the INTER-HOUSE KHO-KHO Competition was held on Thursday, 12th September. It was a nail-biting contest where the audience was at the edge of their seats, cheering for their respective houses. This competition helped the students develop strong bonds of solidarity and act as a great motivating force inculcating true sportsman spirit and competitive streak. SUKRITI HOUSE (boys team) and PRAKRITI HOUSE (girls team) emerged as winners.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLY

A special assembly on the topic INDOMITABLE WILL was presented by the students of Grade VI A on Wednesday, 14th September. The children exhibited immense confidence and poise while speaking. The skit explained that ‘true strength is an indomitable will’ depicting examples from history about great achievers, who showed enormous willpower to achieve their dreams. The presentation was successful in putting across the fact that strength has little meaning in the world when you cannot have the inner strength to face life.

WORKSHOPS

  1. A workshop “FIRST STEP IS THE LAST STEP” was conducted by Krishnamurti img_20160906_143433Foundation India, held at Besant School, Rajghat Fort, Varanasi. It was attended by our Vice-Principal Ms Deepa Kapoor and Librarian Ms Manjula from 6th to 9th September. The workshop revolved around watching videos on Jiddu Krishnamurti’s talks around the world, followed by discussions on those topics by the guests.  It was an exhilarating experience, encouraging them to delve deep into their thoughts. 
  2. I attended a Conference-cum-workshop conducted by Dr. Kobus Neetherling from South Africa on 13th September at The Park Hotel. It was an amazing work shop where Dr. Kobus spoke on ‘FROM ORDIANRY TO BEYOND’. Dr Kobus is a world celebrated speaker, author of 99 books, Guinness World Record holder ( He wrote a 110 page book in 4 and a half minutes- From Impossible to Possible) and a trainer on ‘CREATIVITY AND PASSION’. It was an extraordinary experience to be able to hear him.
  3. An introductory workshop for teachers was conducted in Ganges Valley School, Hyderabad in collaboration with the Indian Schools Debating Society, backed by Ramco Group of Companies. It was attended by our Academic Coordinator Ms Anne Issac and English Mentors Ms Madhuri and Ms Sujana, on Saturday, 17th September. This workshop was designed to bring teachers from various schools across India into the folds of the ‘World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC)’ format of debating.  

We would like to, once again, express our gratitude to Dr Kiran, parent of Dhruv Kumar Naidu, and his team for their dedicated contribution during the Medical Camp held in the campus for two days. Dr. Naidu and his team devoted 2 whole days to carrying out the examination of all children. Thanks a lot Sir.

Dear Parents the 1st Term is over and I sincerely hope you saw the growth and learning in your child. At our end, we have not left any stone unturned to create a happy learning and enriching environment for our children. In the Report Cards, we do give suggestions for improvement. These are mainly about encouraging your child to read more. Please do this sincerely and everyday spend about half an hour discussing some non-academic topic (may be sports or music or movies or good behavior) and you will see wonders happening. Regular and relevant communication with your child will form the basis for lasting relationships in her/his life.

It gives me immense pleasure and pride to share with you that our school ( estd. 2011) is ranked 9th in Hyderabad and Telangana by Education World, out of the 110 schools in Hyderabad, in the open category ( the toughest one) and we compete against schools which are 25 to many more years old.

Dear Parents, the credit goes to both of us for this success as it is your faith in us that is taking us places. Thanks you so much and let’s keep working to even better prospects.

Look forward to meeting you on 1st October and wishing you a great festive season ahead.
