NEWS FROM PRIMARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL
INTER-HOUSE KHO-KHO COMPETITION
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.
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.
- A workshop “FIRST STEP IS THE LAST STEP” was conducted by Krishnamurti Foundation 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.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
Director Principal, Suchitra Academy
