TALK ON IMPORTANCE OF SCIENCE 12705577_1244203758928534_3447109581433145389_n

On Tuesday, 16th February a talk on IMPORTANCE OF SCIENCE AND STEM CELL RESEARCH IN OUR LIVES was given by Dr P Dasardi, Assistant Research Investigator/Wellcome DBT Fellow at Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore.

He explained with simple examples Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and how natural selection and adaptation is the cause of survival of some species. He spoke at length about stem cell regeneration and multi cellularity and the extensive research being done in our country in this field. He also explained what causes the process of ageing and answered various BRILLIANT questions put forth by the students. This interactive session was amazing, very informative and highlighted stem cell research as the future of medicine.

Gr -X FAREWELLIMG_8717

Saturday, 20th February was a red letter day in the lives of all the students of grade X. It was the day of their FAREWELL, a day that they were eagerly awaiting and preparing for. The air was full of excitement and the students of grade IX were well prepared to give their seniors a befitting farewell. The students of grade X arrived, flamboyant and dressed to kill, and were escorted to their seats by the students of grade IX. The entire MP hall was beautifully decorated. The program began with a few dance and songs followed by a hilarious skit which depicted how each student would turn out fifteen years later.Then followed the ramp walk and the question answer session. Titles like Ms Gorgeous, Mr Bolt, Mr.Rock star etc were given to the students. A beautiful farewell gift in the form of a photograph calendar, which had a collection of photographs of each child collected over the year, was given to the students. They were ecstatic on opening their gift. The afternoon ended with a sumptuous lunch and a dance session. After all this, the grade X students took a round of the school and had a last look at their classroom. A classroom where they studied, played pranks, forged everlasting friendships and had the best time of their lives. Departure was tearful and the students left the premises with a heavy heart.

We wish them all the very best for their upcoming exams and are sure that they would bring laurels to the school.

UPCOMING EVENTS

NIGHT CAMP

IMG_20151218_185209279

Friday 18th December was an important and much awaited day for the students of the school. Grades I to IV and Grade X had a NIGHT CAMP at school. The excitement and enthusiasm had caught on the previous day itself and students could not wait to come back to school at 3:30 pm on Friday.

After their arrival, after settling-in and snacks, the students were taken on an outing. Grades I to IV went to Sarva Dharm Sthal and got to understand the true meaning of Unity in Diversity. The students of Grade X went to the Military Reformatory at Thrimulgherry, an erstwhile jail built for the British prisoners. The students were fascinated by its history and architecture.

Later in the evening, a painting competition was conducted for the students. After a tasty dinner everyone assembled in the soccer field for an evening of fun and frolic. There was a talent show and the children put up some brilliant performances of dance, drama and song.

After an enjoyable evening the students retired for the night, only to wake up early at 5:30 a.m. for an adventure trek to the Deer Park at Shamirpet. After discovering the beauty of nature in the wee hours of the morning, the students returned to see a hearty breakfast awaiting them.

The most difficult part was the parting! The students had so much fun during the night camp that they wanted to spend another day at school!!

SPECIAL ASSEMBLIES

They spoke assertively about how ‘giving’ benefits not only the receiver but also the giver. The assembly concluded with a dance formation conveying the message that we need to give something back to our planet too and contribute to the global cause.

GIFT EXCHANGE ACTIVITY

‘It is customary to celebrate joyful events with giving gifts or exchanging.’ A Gift Exchange Activity was organized on 31st December for the students of grades I-X. The gifts were packed by the students themselves. The gifts were exchanged and received with a smile. Each gift that the students exchanged carried feelings of their love and emotions. They were no longer mere lifeless objects but proved to be a strengthening bond of affection between peers. The entire activity proved to be a two-way street, in which the giver and receiver experienced the shared enjoyment of the exchange. It spread cheers and mirth around which brightened up the positivity in the whole school. It was a great end which paves way for a brighter and happier new year.

PLEASE NOTE

  1. There should be no last minute instructions given to school regarding transport changes; that the child should not board the bus and parents will come to pick up or board another route as the parent is at another location etc.

During school hours teachers do not check their mobiles and nor is the office capable of ensuring that the requested changes are conveyed and executed accurately.

Such requests may result in confusion and mismanagement. So kindly cooperate. In rare cases if there is any such need for a change the child should bring a written note from home in the morning and must give it in the office.

  1. Please do not let children come to school with dangling gold (or any other) earrings which may come off easily. Only studs or small ear rings are allowed. The other day thanks to our ayah a dangling gold earring was found and handed over to the parent of Grdae II child.
  2. Fancy hair-cuts (boys or girls) , long untied hair, long nails, rings, fancy expensive watches/ pencil boxes/ water bottles etc. are not allowed please.

 

Another matter of grave concern for us and for you too , is use of bad( abusive, foul) language by the children in the school.

I am at a loss about where to fix the blame !

The child’s environment is home and then school. Between these two where is he/she picking this up?

All you, esteemed parents, provide the best to your children without an exception. At the same time we at school are most zealous about the way we speak to the child. Unfortunately during my meetings with other School Principals this is a common concern and we brainstorm on what could be done. But there are no clear solutions in sight.

How do we handle this menace? You and I have to work on this together by being watchful, correcting and even firm when we notice this. Please do help!

 

Coming to nicer things may I request you to come and sample our food – lunch or snacks- any time, any day.

I would not need any advance information. Please come in at 12.30 p.m. or so and just let the office know.

 

And last but not the least my sincere thanks to the Grade I parents who could spare time and come and meet me on 31st. It was an enjoyable interaction and I do hope that we can fulfill all your expectations.

 

Hope the NEW YEAR brings Cheer, Health, Happiness and Peace to all of us !

With Warmest Regards

After all we have been in your mail box like clockwork every fortnight for the past more than 4 years !!!!

Please do spare a few moments to set or check your child’s school bag each evening. The bag has to be set as per the time table and should not contain unnecessary books. Very heavy bags continue to be a problem as children carry un-required books regularly without your supervision.

Warm Regards
