Dear Parents right now all our energies are directed towards the upcoming MUN and of course keeping the Academics and ECA ends going smoothly too.

Here I would like to share our efforts regarding ECA. Since last year we have put stringent measures in place to supervise as well as improve the quality of ECA experience of students.

 

– Additional assistant coaches have been hired.

– Groupings are much smaller.

– Regular monitoring is done.

– Rubrics are laid down for charting of growth and learning

– Regular meetings are conducted with the coaches and feedback provided.

 

In other words ECA is taken by us in a very organized and result driven format. Yet, the fact remains that each child can get only limited exposure and opportunities. You are requested to set your expectations accordingly and not look for immediate results and achievements.

Actually all our efforts have borne fruit and I must also admit that lately we rarely get any complaints from you regarding ECA. So thanks for that.

I had sent out a request for Sponsors for our MUN and I am still awaiting responses.

We very regularly put up photos and videos on our Facebook  page. Please do visit and ‘like’ us too.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey

Director Principal, Suchitra Academy

Namaste Dear Parents,

Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra.

AWARENESS ON ‘STRANGER DANGER AND GOOD TOUCH BAD TOUCH’

sd 4

To understand the notion of ‘Stranger Danger’ better sd1kids were given various scenarios for role play like ‘the child is home alone and doorbell rings’ or ‘the child is at the playground when an unfamiliar adult calls out to her/him by the name’. The purpose of the role play was to teach our kids how to react when approached by a stranger. The kids were also briefed on the good touch and bad touch.

INTRODUCTION OF THEME- ‘DISCOVERY OF INDIA AND PEOPLE WHO HELP US’

IMG-0716

On Tuesday, 7th August our new theme ‘Discovery of India and People who help us’ was introduced. In this theme, kids will be gaining some interesting information about India while enjoying a range of fun facts. Kids will learn about a few freedom fighters and our national leaders.

Kids will also learn about ‘People who Help us’. Learning about this topic helps kids to make connections between themselves and the outside world. This topic aims to make them more aware of different jobs and roles people take on in their own homes, in school and in their community. The topic also provides key life skills for children (for example, knowing how to dial the emergency services, who to ask if they get lost, etc.).

FRIENDSHIP DAY CELEBRATION

“The only way to have a friend is to be one”. Friendship day was celebrated in IMG_20180803_143707 (1)Pre-primary on Friday, 3rd August to commemorate the bonds of friendship. Our kids made lovely colourful friendship bands using paints, straws, glitters and ribbons and enjoyed tying them around their friends’ wrists. The teachers talked about the importance of having good friends and treating them with respect.

FIELD TRIP TO SARVA DHARMA STHAL

To understand the various religions and cultures of India, and to celebrate the strength of our nation to stay united beyond differences, our children were taken on a field trip to AOC Sarv Dharm Sthal on Friday, 10th August.
