 PICNIC FUN

We at Suchitra pre-primary planned a picnic to Lumbini Park on Thursday, 25th January. What better time to plan a picnic, especially when spring is upon us. It was an amazing place full of greenery, bringing the children close to the alluring beauty and bounties of nature. The children were full of excitement as they played lots of games and were served sumptuous lunch. What a joy it was watching the children exploring their natural world and the spontaneity they exhibited. It was an unforgettable visit.

The assembly commenced with an introduction to the festival, this was followed by a rendition of the Saraswati Vandana and recitation of shlokas. They spoke about how the advent of spring is celebrated in Bengal and Punjab and why we, traditionally wear yellow on that day. The presentation culminated with mesmerizing dance performances by the students.

 

REPUBLIC DAY CELEBRATION

India’s 69th REPUBLIC DAY was celebrated today with patriotic fervor. The celebrations began with flag hoisting.  It was a moment of great pride for all of us to soak in the fact that it took almost 3 years for the Indian Constitution to be shaped in its current form. The teachers offered a perfect tribute with melodious patriotic bhajans. Sai Medha, the school captain, delivered a powerful speech that reminded us that our country has flourished despite adversities to rise victorious.

We will also be sending you a mail asking you to let us know if your child will be continuing with Suchitra Academy in the coming Academic Year which starts from Monday, 12th March 2018.

Admissions for Play Group to Grade XI are in progress and it is heartening for us to note that people from far off areas are converging on Suchitra Academy and seeking admissions.

Thank you, Parents this has been possible mainly because of the lovely positive feedback that you have been giving. Also, this pushes us to work harder and try for the stars for our dear kids.

Hope 26th January has some more significance for all of us besides being a holiday to enjoy. Hope we realize how only we alone can make a difference to our city, state and country.

 

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey,

Director Principal, Suchitra Academy

May this festival of the harvest season be one that brings along with it all that’s best.

 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

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

 

Pre –PRIMARY ANNUAL Day/CANVAS auction

The tiny tots of pre-primary put up a wonderful show on Saturday, 30th December and enthralled their proud parents. In a colourful display of ‘The Magical Hop around the World’ the kids sang, danced and acted on stage. The event held parents in awe as one by one the items unfolded on stage. The enthusiasm and energy reverberated in the entire hall with applause doing justice to the show.

As every year the canvases painted by students and teachers were auctioned after the Annual show. It was amazing to see parents bid with such enthusiasm.

 

Our lucky bidders were parents of:

NEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL          

                                   

Teach for change  

An interactive session was conducted for the students of Grades VIII-X on Wednesday, 3rd January. Our guest speaker Mr. Chaitanya MRSK is the Founder and CEO of ‘Teach for Change’, an NGO he founded when all of 17 years old. The session was extremely enriching!! His words not only enlightened but also motivated and inspired our students to identify their goals and role in building a wider movement for educational equity in the country.

A Field trip

IMG-20180103-WA0010

On Wednesday, 3rdJanuary the students of Grade VII visited the B M BIRLA SCIENCE CENTRE. They found all the 3 shows (Planetarium, 3D show & museum) interesting. Lessons on gravity, pendulum, optical illusion, circular motion and many other scientific principles came alive for the students from the exhibits at the museum.

 

On the same day Grade V visited the magnificent CHOWMAHALLA PALACE. The students took a peep into the days gone by and were quite amazed to see the architecture, furniture and crockery displaying the luxurious lifestyle of Nizams, making them wonder how such a magnificent building could be constructed when technology, then, was not so developed.

 

Special assembly

 IMG_20180104_085823

The SANKRANTI ASSEMBLY on Thursday, 4th January ignited the festive spirit among the students as well as the teachers. The students explained the various customs and traditions followed during this festival. The ritual of bhogipandlu was performed and the significance of the bhogi bonfire was explained. The dances brought out the true essence of the day which was ‘fun and festive.’ A loud cheer of Happy Sankranti boomed throughout the assembly greeting everyone!

Speak to lead club

The members of ‘The Speak to Lead Club’ had their concluding meeting for this academic session which was held on Thursday, 4th January. They declaimed, recited creative monologues, put up entertaining radio shows – proving without doubt the success of the club!

Drop everything and read

To encourage students to read and to start them young, the teachers and students of Grade V C came up with a novel initiative of engaging young children from Grades I-III to read. They came dressed up as characters from books, recited the original poems that they had written in different classes and asked students to guess who it was. They concluded by telling the students that there were many more characters they could meet in the library by reading books!

Night camp

The annual night camp was organized for Grades I-III and X on 5th -6th January. A trip to the Army Sports Complex where children participated in a variety of Team Building Games arranged by their teachers and then came back to a sumptuous dinner. And then under a sky filled with twinkling stars and classmates for company, the students had the time of their lives as they exhibited their umpteen talents to the roaring applause of the audience. The highlight of the evening, like every other year, was the bonfire and the foot tapping music provided by Mr. Chaitanya doubling up as the DJ. The children grooved to the music and it was an effort to coerce them off the ground into the classes to sleep. They were up at 5 a.m. and ready to go to Necklace Road for a walk and some more play! It was definitely a night to treasure!

Last Fortnight we had made a mention of the Math Days’ Events and Competitions that took place in school. Here are the winners of various Events that took place as part of the Math Days. Congratulations to all the Winners!!

Dear Parents, hope you are spending some quality time with your children now that the morning rush is not there and neither is there a hurry to catch the school bus. I do recommend that you make a habit of asking kids to observe more keenly their environment, be it at home or outside. Ask them to identify shapes, number of angles in an object or the angles a door makes as it moves on its hinges. Ask them why the pressure cooker whistles and throws up the weight when heated for some time. Why food always turns BLACK when burnt whatever the original color might be. Give them the opportunity to be curious, encourage them to ASK QUESTIONS and search for answers. Asking questions is much tougher than finding answers and that is the skill they need- OF ASKING QUESTIONS.

     We have changed the reopening date to 17th January and please do make a note of it.

Otherwise, our priorities remain the same. NO late coming. NO shabby long hair beyond 1 to 1.5 inch. NO wrong uniforms (Thursday is for Formal school uniform). NO long nails, nail polish, henna, huge watches, dangling ear rings etc…

The slight chill in air makes this short break even more beautiful. Enjoy! And hope the New Year treats you well.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey

Director Principal, Suchitra Academy

P.S. Dear Parents as our Grade X’s Academic Year draws to a close and a sense of a chapter closing in their lives dawns on them, they wished to voice some of their feelings. These reminiscences are very special and are being sent to you as a supplement with this Newsletter. It is with a twinge of sorrow and a sense of delight that I read these. Hope you will enjoy this and understand some of the emotions that they are going through……
