Learning occurs naturally when children are actively involved and having fun!!!!

INTER-HOUSE RECITATION COMPETITION

Kids came dressed in their character and recited the rhymes with self introduction and apt expression and actions.

INTER-HOUSE STORYTELLING COMPETITON 

The ability to express someone else’s words in your own way will enable a child to create his /her unique identity. Also, this activity is held to tap into the children’s creative talent.

 DEMO OF SIMPLE MACHINES

Science for children….  On Wednesday ,12th  July, we created stations with simple machines and other objects to exhibit how simple machines make our work easier.

There was a lever, wedge, inclined-plane station, wheel and axle station, pulley and screw station. Children examined every tool and machine displayed and learnt how the machines are useful in our day to day life. Children had the opportunity to operate these machines and understand the working of them.

The preschoolers had the delightful opportunity to visit the magical land of the mouth watering goodies of the Monginis Cake Factory on Friday ,14th  July. The children were excited to see how cakes were really made. They witnessed the working of huge machines and the step by step process of the baking of cake (kneading, rolling, cutting, baking, etc.) It was a very exciting visit as children got to eat freshly baked cookies.VISIT TO MONGINIS CAKE FACTORY

BUS WASH

Washing the bus is a great way to get children involved in an activity while enjoying natural play with water and at the same time observe the machine which helps the bus move from one place to another.

Dear parents the ‘action’ seems endless here at Suchitra.

Next week would be the Inter House Literary Competitions and the children selected, after giving opportunities to all at class level, will represent their houses. Our commitment to provide a level playing field to all, giving a chance to all, remains sacred.

Last whole week all of us have been inundated by news and warnings about the drug menace spreading itself like a virus through schools and children. None of us can sit back and be complacent thinking/ hoping that it will not tempt our children or ever come their way. As parents and teachers we have to play a very proactive role in watching and monitoring closely what goes on in the lives of our children. They are young and vulnerable and need our care, affection and attention.

We, as a responsible school, will be taking up some programmes in the coming days to increase awareness of the dangers lurking in the shadows. I am certain, you, on your part, shall also be more alert and more watchful.

Newspapers and articles tell clearly in what way we can neutralize this threat to a large extent; be it not giving too much money or interacting closely with your kids.

These are tough times and call for tough parenting. At the same time if we are doing our job right there is really nothing to be worried about.

Warm Regards

Fidget spinner – the latest craze

We would like to bring to your attention this crazy gadget that has emerged from nowhere and has taken the children by storm. It started off as being a ‘toy’ that aids students with learning disorders, anxiety, autism and ADHD. But very gradually we are seeing this getting to be a source of distraction in the class rooms.

While the class is in progress student A uses the fidget spinner and in turn distracts not only student B, but all others around him and the teacher too!! This is becoming a regular scene in classrooms. The fidget spinner has been banned in many schools in the US for this reason.

We request parents to read up on this and not just buy it to gratify the students’ urges. It  seems to be doing more harm than good, so says a clinical psychologist at the University of Central Florida.

 TOUCHED BEYOND WORDS!!!!

 Very few ex-students get back to the school showing appreciation. So, when a student wrote to us expressing her gratitude, it made many of her teachers happy!

 A letter from one of our ex-students, Roma Samala

Namaste Renu Ma’am

 My name is Roma Samala , an ex- student of Suchitra Academy. I have written this mail to give a huge thanks to you and all the teachers who guided me at Suchitra Academy. Before I joined Suchitra I never thought I could give a speech in front of an audience, never thought I could write a poem that rhymed, never thought I would start loving Math again and never thought I would have the confidence that I have today.

Suchitra Academy has given me numerous opportunities to showcase the talent I never thought I had. You have always believed in me and given the guidance that I needed. My concepts are clear because of my wonderful teachers and I can solve a problem without any hesitation.

I will always remember the wonderful memories I had here with my friends, the memorable moments of laughter with my teachers, the competitions, the excursion and every bit of time I enjoyed in Suchitra. Even though I am in a new school I will never forget the support and love that I received from all of you, I hope that one day we will meet again and I will always be a proud Suchitran.  

I request you to please share this mail with all my teachers.

Regards,

Roma Samala

Dear Parents, barely one week into school and we are already into the thick of things and I suppose that is our differentiator.

If you look closely, you will notice that all that we do, always has an underlying objective of Learning. And this is what we mean when we talk about ‘overall development’.

Text books and filled up note books all schools have, but how the content and concepts are put across and how the note books are filled is the important consideration. Is pages filled with dictated notes to be mugged up and reproduced verbatim, the agenda or is it important to comprehend and create? I am sure the answer is obvious and that is what we all work at. Professional Development is an ongoing process here and we all are constant learners.

Parents, I am also aware that morning drop and afternoon pick up is proving to be a trying time if you are driving in. This has further worsened because of the rains. But please show some patience. After all, everyone is here for the same reason of dropping the child and going away and five minutes delay will not cause any calamit

 

Today, the security people were in my office and one of them was actually in tears talking about the abusive language that is being used for them, when they try to mind traffic. I was told, some parents just lock the car and walk away regardless of the blocking that may be happening. How do we manage traffic if this is how the guards are treated? A bit of patience; and it will be so much easier.

We all know about increasing cars and shrinking parking spaces all over the city. This is a FACT. How will losing cool help matters? Please remember our children are watching us and picking up the same impatience and disregard. With a bit of patience and pleasantness, the situation may not appear as stressful.

In fact it will be great if some parent with knowledge of transport and traffic management comes forward to help us improve this situation. Believe me, you will get many blessings !

Warm Regards
