Pre-school had a wonderful graduation ceremony to bid farewell to the Sr. KG kids. We celebrated our children’s achievements and shared memories of their pre-school days. The welcome dance and the graduation song presented by the Sr. KG kids were memorable. The skit presented by the Nursery and Jr.KG kids was a treat to the eyes. The pre-primary mentors sung a heart touching song and bid farewell to the Sr. KG kids.

News from High School



When did you last see children going around speaking about the books that they have read?  Well, students from Classes VA and VB did just that on Wednesday, 15th February. They went around to Grades II and III to speak about the books that they had read during the library period. They spoke about the book, enacted their favourite scene, recited poems that they wrote, asked their audience to guess and finally told them about the exciting world contained in story-books.

Both sets of students enjoyed the exercise and it seemed a wonderful way to engage students and encourage them to read books.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.” The FAREWELL FOR GRADE X was definitely one such moment. An event organized by the teachers and the students of Grade IX marking the perfect send-off, a beautiful emotional closure.

The evening went past the designs of the beautiful gowns and the fitting of the blazers. It went to a special place, a place that broke the barricades of cliques and divisions. The atmosphere was filled with happiness and celebration, but also mixed with the bitter feeling of “goodbye”. Music, dance and games were a lot of fun. Grade X couldn’t have asked for anything more. They wanted to capture every moment and hence, the endless “selfies” and pictures. The highlight of the event was the Mr. and Ms.Suchitra Contest, where our sporting Grade X participated enthusiastically. After three competitive, yet amusing rounds ParvezShokat Ali Dosani and Ashika  were awarded the title of Mr. and Ms.Suchitra.

16th March: New Academic Session begins for Grades I-VIII

With the last day of classes being today and exams beginning on Monday, the 27th, I want to wish you all the best for the final push.

Without a doubt, this can be a stressful time of year. As difficult as it can sometimes feel, I’ve always believed that a little stress can be a good motivator: if we didn’t feel it, we wouldn’t make the extra effort we need to succeed.

Grade X also is preparing to write their final examinations- I wish them the very best in their examinations and in the choices they will have to make in the future.

 Warm Regards

Theme-end presentation


Theme-end presentation held on Friday 6th January covered the theme ‘Farm to the Table’, ‘Transport’, ‘Learning through Stories’ and ‘Fantasy Land’.

It was amazing to see the Nursery kids talk about various traffic rules, they also took us on a joy ride with the four modes of transport song. The Jr. KG Skit took us to the land of healthy veggies and healthy eating habits. The Sr. KG kids presented their learning of stories through musical skit, dance and song.

Canvas Auction

The Canvas Auction was held immediately after the theme-end presentation. We are overwhelmed by the response from the parents for the Canvas. Thank you dear parents your generosity will help us adopt more kids from the SOS village.

The highest bidders were parents of











The students of grade VII visited the GROMOR NURSEY in Kompally on Monday, 2nd January. Mr. Dilip, the care taker of the Nursery explained the various methods of vegetative propagation including grafting and layering. They also saw bonsai, seasonal, aquatic, and ground cover flowers. The different varieties of cacti really intrigued the students. It was a plant and flower filled day for them!!




An ARTISTIC special assembly depicting the COLOURS OF LIFE was presented on Tuesday, 3rd December. It highlighted a strong message that art is universal and because art is everywhere, we experience it on a daily basis. Apart from presenting about the famous artists who have carved a niche for themselves it also focussed on the various career paths that art offers these days. The assembly culminated with a live drawing made on different canvases. The audience was awestruck when the different pieces were brought together.

Do log on to our Facebook page to witness the wonderful masterpiece made by the students on the spot.



Another special assembly on LOHRI was presented on Thursday, 5th January. This ignited the festive spirit among the students as well as the teachers. The students explained the various customs and traditions followed during this festival. They danced to the foot tapping Bhangra beats around the bonfire. Grade X had a great time dancing around the bonfire welcoming the harvest season with fervor.

17th January: School re-opens for Grades I-VIII

Visit to Police Station Grade III

Dear parents I once again appeal to you to help us in enforcing respect for school rules and discipline.

When students know that teachers and parents are working together, behaviour as well as adherence to rules improves dramatically.

We have, on countless number of occasions, stressed on the importance of short hair for the boys and two plaits for the girls ( for purpose of their looking neat throughout the day); short nails ( for no dirt in the nails and safety of other children); appropriate uniform and completing the homework in time.

In spite of this, it saddens us immensely when you, parents, show resentment towards the school’s policies and do not help us in maintaining the requirement.

We would like to remind you that the only purpose of these regulations is to instill discipline in your child. Please cooperate.

Although this will take effort on your part, the time you spend building a bridge between school and home will reward you many times over during the course of life. Arguing with the school authorities in front of the child sends a wrong message to the child, which does happen sometimes.

For any issues regarding turn out, hair, nails or wrong uniform, students will be sent back home without any prior diary notes etc.

No arguments and impolite behaviour will be acceptable…. (Pl note the regulation reg hair length for boys is 1 to 1.5 inches maximum). 

Hope you are having a great bonding time with your children and are also looking into the brief Home Assignments given. Please ensure completion of the work.

Look forward to seeing the children as the school reopens shortly.


Class X was asked to create advertisements for unusual products/ unusual advertisements for regular products. And here is a peek into some of  the best ones they came up with!

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….


Children are not things to be moulded but people to be unfolded

Jess Lair


14705910_1449748041707437_4616039437774040539_nThe theme ‘Farm to the Table and Transport’ was introduced on Monday 17th October with a ‘Wow Factor’ that had changed the very landscape around the classes !

Preschool children are active learners who experience the world through their senses, physical involvement and active play. Through this theme children will be learning the process of farming through practical experience. A small patch of land has been provided for Jr. and Sr. KG kids where they will be digging the soil to make it loose, sowing seeds, weeding and taking care of the crops. We also have various activities like milking the cow, baking, healthy food week and many more practical activities lined up.

Note : Dear Parents if any of you have a farm where we can take our Preschool kids for a learning experience, please do let us know.


Early detection of vision problems is very important and has a considerable impact on the life of children. Poor vision in childhood affects performance in school and may have a negative effect on the future of the child.14680492_1448791728469735_7040065322142736930_n

Children below six years old are mostly unaware of what a “normal” vision is. They are unlikely to complain of vision problems and hence on Tuesday 18th October it was initiated at Suchitra Academy to check children’s eyes. The doctors have given slips with their suggestions and these slips are attached to the children’s diary for your reference.


Friday 28th October               – Diwali Celebration

Monday 31st October           – Halloween Celebration  ( instruction will be sent through diary for both the events)



14702383_1446321965383378_714876638672932317_nSarvesh Paradkar and Ruchika Agarwal from grade X were amongst the many who enjoyed the SCHOOL EXCURSION to Delhi, Dalhousie and Amritsar.  They made a brief presentation on Monday, 17th October, highlighting important details and moments of joy experienced throughout the trip. The itinerary included visits to the Golden Temple, Jallianwalla Bagh, Humayun’s Tomb and many other places. The guided trip allowed students to relive history after seeing the Martyr’s well at Jalliawala Bagh. The trip also enhanced camaraderie amongst students and was of great educational value.


An EYE CAMP was held at school on Tuesday, 18th October and Wednesday 19th October, for grades I-X. This camp was conducted by Sri Sigma Hospitals. Children from all grades got their eyes checked. The doctors gave advice on proper eye care and stressed on the importance of nutritious diet to maintain healthy eyesight. They also issued prescriptions wherever necessary. We are extremely grateful to the team of Doctors led by Dr. Patel Bhavin  Kumar,  who spared 2 valuable days for us. If you visit the hospital, there are special discounts available on consultation.


dscn1212PROJECT-BASED LEARNING is a dynamic approach in which the students actively explore real-world problems, challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge.  The students of grades IV, V and VIII made their presentations on Wednesday, 19th October and Thursday, 21st October, respectively. Each class had identified a ‘real problem’ like deforestation, healthy eating habits, air pollution etc.  In this process,


students also honed their organizational and research skills, developed better communication with their peers, audience and worked within their community while seeing the positive effects of their work.


Students of Gr IX-X visted the Old age home ‘Krishnasadan’ on Thursday,  20th October,   as part of the CAS program. Children were very humbled and touched with the presence of old inmates at the home. They interacted with them, sang songs for them and spent quality time with them. Students realized that the most precious and worthy gift they could give to the old inmates is their ‘TIME’ because no one things they are worthy of it. The children also donated a carom board, Chess board and a Tambola set to the inmates. They left the home with a heavy heart with a promise to the inmates that they would visit them again!

Parents, if you wish to visit the place or make a donation, here are the details.

You can support an elderly by donating Rs 3000/- p.m. or 36,000/- annually. For further details, pl get in touch on 8333005264, 8096000008. Website – www.krishnasadan.org

Kids are being taught to honour and respect the National Flag and the National Anthem. They are learning to respect the national property and keep the country clean.



Children celebrated the joys of making and having friends on Thursday 4th August. ‘Friendship Day’ was the perfect occasion to let the kids know how much friends are needed. Kids made their own friendship bands and exchanged amongst their friends. This was an excellent starting point for discussions on friendship and behaviours.

It was an activity that initiated a feeling of fun but in the long run they learnt to challenge themselves by searching for opportunities and by experimenting, taking risks and learning from mistakes.  This activity proved to be a powerful way to unite a group, develop strengths and address weaknesses.

Inter School Basket ball Tournament

Suchitra Academy participated in Shri B. Ramender Reddy Memorial Inter School Basketball Tournament for Boys & Girls (Under 16 yrs) which was held between 4th and 6th August, 2016 at Niraj International School. The boys team reached the Finals and bagged 2nd place (Runner up). The Girls team played a magnificent game and reached the Semi Finals which unfortunately lost to Niraj International School.

They were happy to stand on a platform where they could showcase their talent and receive appreciation from all.  8th and 9th August, the campus was abuzz with the Inter-School English Literary Competition. 18 schools including HPS Begumpet, Meridian, Pallavi Model School, Bolton, St. Andrews etc. participated in the event.

The entire programme went off successfully and this year too, our students bagged many prizes. The winners list is on the last page of the newsletter.

Day 1 – Ms Deepa Banerjee, Ms Zenobia Rustam Fram, Ms Ritu and Ms Arti, all renowned names in the teaching field, were the Chief Guests for the day, and our honorable judges. It was the day of Recitation, Extempore’, Oration and Declamation.  We were proud spectators as the children enthralled us with their performance. Their prioritization and sequencing of thoughts to display logical thinking was commendable. The poise and comfort with which they spoke was appreciated by all.

Day 2 – Dr Saraswati Puranik, Ms Vandana Patel, Ms Urmila Mahajan and Ms Sunita Modi, were the judges on the second day of the competition. This day kept the audience on the edge of their seats with the debate and storytelling competitions.

I am happy in the morning,

When I hear the bird sing,

Merry, merry songs,

In the morning.

I am happy in the noon,

Our games start very soon,

And we will play till we are tired,

In the afternoon.

Such a lovely night ,

Seeing the moon shining bright

In the night.


Name: Dipansha Agarwal Grade III D – 2nd prize

I am happy when

I am happy when I play,

I am happy when I swing,

I am happy when I talk,

And I am happy when I walk

I am happy when I sing and dance,

I am happy when someone hugs me,

I am happy when it’s raining

I am happy when it’s my birthday,

I am happy when everyone gives gifts to me.

I am always very happy.


Group 3:

 Name: T Pratik, Grade: VI B- 1st prize

Topic: Homework

 Do you like homework?

Neither do I.

I want to be free like a bird

Flying in the sky

All of our homework

Is all so irritating

I could ban all our homework

If I were the king.

When I do it all

I feel so relieved

And when I get it all

It’s like I’m never free.

If I were to go back

And stop this difficult thing

I would take the chance

And stop this thing.



Name: Aishi Raju, V B- 2nd prize

Topic:  Homework

Homework is a fun thing to do,

Math, Science and English too.

When I have no one to play with,

I go and do my homework.

Projects or diagrams,

Both are very interesting.

When I have too much homework,

Sometimes I have a headache,

So, I do it in the garden

Or right in my bed.

I have to do homework

It makes me feel good,

And when I finished it completely

I run off to play.


Name: Om Dhotre, Grade:VIIB – 3rd prize

Topic: The Last time I Cried

It was a Tuesday

On the 19th day of July

I woke up in the morning, happy.

But I had no idea I would cry that day.

I was selected for extempore

I was energized and happy

I boarded the school bus, excited

But I had no idea I would cry that day.


When I reached school, I was more excited

I was so energized and pumped up

I thought I would do my best and my better

But I had no idea I would cry that day.


Then came the time for

The biggest day of my life

It was a huge competition

I knew I had to win it

But I had no idea I would cry that day.


My turn to speak came

The anchor called my name

I took a deep breath

And stepped on the stage

But I had no idea I would cry that day.


As I looked at the thousands of people before me

My leg and my fingers started to tremble

My heart was beating fast and I thought

“Will I do well? Will I win?”

But, I had no idea I would cry that day.


My speech had a bad start

Like the wheelspin of a racing car

I almost forgot what my topic was

But then I caught up.

I spoke all the words that came into my mind

But, I had no idea I would cry that day.


At last, the anticipated moment came

The time for announcing the results

I folded my hands and started praying

For my luck and my life

But, I had no idea I would cry that day.


The winners were Prachi and Manhar

I felt like broken glass

I told to myself,’Chin Up, you’re a boy”

But that was of no use for a boy like me.

I really had no idea of I would cry that day


Then school was over, I was going to the bus

Sadly thinking about all my efforts gone in waste

Thinking about all my classmates saying tome,

“Congratulations, Om! You lost!”

Well, I had no idea I would cry that day.


I settled in my seat

Still thinking the same

I rested my head on the seat

Trying to forget and sleep the same.


I felt like crying, then

I thought of all my efforts

I couldn’t control my emotions

And I started to cry and cry and cry

That was the last time I cried.


Group 4:

Name: Sarvesh Paradkar, Grade X- 1st prize

When everything goes wrong

I woke up from sleep

And fell down a bed so steep

I went down for breakfast, still feeling tired

Then found out that the milk had expired!

Right then   my neighbor started their blaring song

Why, today, was everything going wrong?


I was already late, so I decided to run to the bus stand

A bad decision I realized as I slipped in the sand.

When I finally reached, the bus was nowhere to be seen

Was it yet to come, or had it already been?

A man told me, “The bus has already come for the day”

Why was everything going wrong today?


When I came to school, I was super late

The teacher was already writing the date!

So I stood outside, staring at the class

Guess this was a subject, I wasn’t going to pass

Then there was a break and everyone, except me, went to play

Why was everything going wrong today?


Then I looked at the timetable, it was going to be all right

The next period was games, everything was just right.


Name: Roma Samala, VIIIB-  2nd prize

Sometimes I wish…

Once along the beach

I saw something in my reach.

It was a dirty looking lamp

In a place that was very cramped.


I smeared some of the mold

To uncover a lamp that was gold.

The lamp started to shine bright

And out came golden light.


An abstract figure emerged from the lamp

Blue and gold and not at all damp.

The figure said ‘I shall grant you three wishes’

After that all you will get is three empty dishes.


“So use them wisely”, he said

And without disagreement, I followed where he tread.

My first wish was immortality to fly

So I could go up and touch the sky.


My second wish was to be rich

And this was for real without  a glitch

At last came the third vortex

Should it be simple or complex.


So I wished for a million more wishes

And so, I got no empty dishes.

I started to wonder what could go wrong

Thinking this is a dream and it won’t last for long.


So out there I wandered

With my wishes not forgotten.

I knew this dream was actually true

So all I could do was be wise and look at the sky so blue.

Topic: The bird who couldn’t fly.

There once was a bird who couldn’t fly, she was a sparrow. Since the minute she was born to the last try she couldn’t fly, no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t fly. All the other birds would tease her because she couldn’t fly. She felt like crying when they teased her. She only had one friend who cared for her very much. They were best friends. No one could bring them apart .She always felt joyful when her friend found a way to stop others from teasing her. One day as they were talking about why she could not fly, a huge bird came down and took her friend away. She called for him, but all in vain. So she had only one chance to rescue him. She flapped her wings harder and harder till they lifted her off the ground. She kept trying and she finally got the hang of it and she went faster and faster and finally caught up with the huge bird. She found her friend and stopped the bird from eating him. Then they went back to their tree happily.

This story is all about my journey on a pirate ship.So here goes.I was on vacation with my friends on a small island. There, I saw a ship.  A ship that wasn’t ours.So I decided to take a peek.When I got on, the ship started moving. Curiosity killed the cat and all that….When someone was lifting the anchor, I realized I was not alone.I was drifting away from my friends!  Jack! Save me! Anyone here?” I shouted.  Who should come, but the pirates themselves.I realized that as I heard the deck creaking.

I had been running to and fro in my fear when I tumbled over a chest.  I had found a treasure chest.It had a imprint of a skull on it which was made of gold. When I opened it, I realized that I had hit jackpot. I filled my pockets with coins.

Meanwhile, the pirates had caught me. I thought they were going to loot me and push me off the deck.  On the deck, when I looked around, I realized that the boat was only a few metres away from land.I thought I could jump off.  I was sweating profusely. The clock was ticking and the boat was slowly drifting away. I made the decision in a split second. I dropped all the coins for speed and weight reduction.I jumped off the deck using the same plank.  I swam and later when I reached the beach, ran very fast. I was lucky the pirates did not chase me. So I hope this tells you what to do and what not to do on a pirate ship.Now this is just something extra.The captain had a hook for a hand! Weird ,huh?

Topic : A Dark Hallway

It was night. I was in my room watching videos on my laptop because it was the weekend.It was around mid-night when I heard a noise from the hallway.I was really scared.So I ran to my parents’ room and woke my mom first.She told me that it might be coming from the kitchen. And then she told me to go have a look.  That should have given the game away.  Which mother tells you to go and check a dark hallway?

I went to my room and quickly grabbed my toy gun filled with water.  It was not regular water.It was paint water.I wore my baseball hat which made me feel more like an under-cover agent.  I tiptoed down the stairs.I heard another sound which was louder. I finally got downstairs.Now, I had to pass through the dark hallway.My heart was beating faster than usual.I was scared of my own footsteps.As I was passing through the hallway, I heard different sounds from my brothers’ room, which was weird because my brother had left for college.  I opened the door slightly, when I realized that my little sister uses his room.She was playing with her dolls.I asked her to accompany me to the hallway.Now we had to go inside the kitchen.I opened the door to make sure no one was there.Then I noticed that the light was ON.My sister smelled cookies and opened the door.There,  I saw my dad. He was stuffing his face with cookies.  So, my dad was the thief of the day and was coated with pink paint.  And what’s more, I turned around to see my mother doubled over with laughter!!!

Topic – A friend who moved away

As far as I remember, the time I spent with her, the joys we celebrated together are the most precious memories I have. She was Aprajita Mukherjee, my best friend, whom I can never forget. We were together since we were in first grade. We used to get time to play before the assembly started. Somehow, we were the only ones who would not hear the bell and always ended up going late to assembly. And once, the teachers were so annoyed that they made us stand in front of the crowd while the assembly was going on with our hands touching our toes. You might be thinking how embarrassing it would have been.

But for me, it is a precious memory. Even though we were punished, we kept on laughing and chatting which is what I remember. Then, another time, while we were playing in the play pen, we suddenly saw a spark in the sky. We thought it would bring us joy, but it brought us life-long misery.  It was a UFO.  It came down, and suddenly everyone in the school vanished. Aprajita and I were wearing black clothes with our hair put up in a bun. The first thing the alien with one eye and an antenna kind of thing on his head, green in colour said “We hate black” with an angry face.  Aprajita and I looked at each other and saw that we were indeed wearing black clothes. We were brave enough to ask him why he had come to earth.

He replied,” I have come here to take one of you away from the other, because we hate when two people are very friendly and have a lot of affection between them.” We were proud that he had indicated that Aprajita and I were best friends. Without another word, he took Aprajita with him. I started crying and I suddenly heard my Mom calling me. And I woke up and realized it was just a dream.

But we did get separated that year as I changed my school. Till date, there are nights when tears fill my eyes when I recall these memories. I still try to look for her in social networking sites. She was funny, she was kind and we got along so well that the bond we shared, even if it was so transient has left an everlasting memory.

Topic: A friend who moved away

She was not just a friend, Ashna was the sparkle if I were the diamond. IF I were gold, then she was the real value. She was my best friend.

In a world where there are girls and there are boys, we are those girls who think, act and work like boys. We don’t really understand what runs in each other’s head, but we, surely do the same thing. Ashna and I have shared a lot of experiences and adventured together.

One of them was a time when both of us had gone to take our neighbor’s dog for walk.  We were so engrossed in our talk that Hatchi, the dog pulled itself and ran away.   It took a long time for me to realize that Hatchi was missing. Both of us started to run around our whole complex looking for him. After two and a half hours, we went to Mrs. Bring our neighbor, to tell us that Hatchi was missing, but to our surprise, we saw Hatchi peacefully sleeping in his garden.

There were so many more adventures filled with joy, excitement, anxiety, guilt, depression that Ashna and I shared. If I had a chance,I could write a whole book about it.

Ashna is now in Bombay, and even today, after 3 years, she tells me that she doesn’t belong to the city and wants to come back. And I often think, I could give up anything for her to come and live here again and be able to spend time with her.

Namaste Dear Parents,

We are happy to keep you informed about the various events and happenings at Suchitra!!

Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra. The month of July was a blink and miss with a flurry of activities and competitions. It was exhilarating!!

Please read on for some interesting news from the Suchitra Campus…



On Thursday 21st July, we created stations with simple machines and objects that helped prove that simple machines make our work easier.

There was a lever station, wedge station, inclined-plane station, wheel and axel station, pulley station and a screw station. Children examined tools and machines and learnt how the machines improve the lives of humans. Children had the opportunity to operate these machines and understand the working of the machines.


As we are learning about various changes, we also touched upon the changes in season. We organized a ‘RAIN DANCE’ for kids on Tuesday 26th July. Through this we could draw their attention to the water puddle on which they splashed and played in the morning which disappeared later in the day. Children were encouraged to think where and how the water disappeared and in the process develop an understanding of the water cycle.


13886494_1368812079801034_1148670821773596629_nThe first Theme-end Presentation of this academic year was held on Friday 29th July. It was amazing to see the Playgroup and Nursery children display their confidence on the stage. The Jr. KG children mesmerised the crowd with their song, skit and dance. Sr. KG children displayed their learning through slide show of amazing facts, talk on reason for seasons and skit on life cycle of frog, germination of seed, stages of human growth and life cycle of the butterfly. The song on body parts and the butterfly dance was fascinating.



Monday 1st August                    – Bonalu Holiday

Tuesday 2nd August                   – Introduction of new theme (Discovery of India & People who help us)

Wednesday 3rd August             – Recitation competition (elimination round)

Wednesday 10th August           – Recitation competition (Final round)

Thursday 11th August               – Field trip (Sarva Dharm Sthal)



The entire week, starting 18th July, was a very busy week with a plethora of Inter- House competitions celebrating the English Language Week.

20160719_095049Monday, 18th July, was the day of ENGLISH SOLO AND GROUP POETRY RECITATION COMPETITION. It was a day when Edward Lear, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Shelly came alive on stage.  The students recited beautiful poems engaging with the audience through physical presence, including appropriate body language, confidence and eye contact. Some of the memorable poems were ‘Kubla Khan’, ‘Why Mankind Why’, to name a few. We were proud spectators as the children enthralled us with their performance. Ms Nalini Nanda Kumar, raconteur and compere of international fame, was the chief guest and judge for the day.

Tuesday, 19th July, was the day of STORY-TELLING AND EXTEMPORE COMPETITION. Students from Grades I and II narrated interesting stories from Aesop Fables and Akbar – Birbal tales. They brought the characters to life with their confidence, voice modulation, stage presence and beautiful props to support.

The students of grades III to X taxed their imagination to think off their feet. Their prioritization and sequencing of thoughts to display logical thinking was commendable. The poise and comfort with which they spoke, spoke volumes about the commendable job my teachers are doing to instil various skills in our children.

Mrs Urmi Mazundar ( HOD English) from St. Andrews School, Bowenpally, graced the occasion and judged the event. In her speech she expressed amazement at the expertise that the children seemed to display in thinking on-the-spot. She had profuse praise for the brilliant display on the day.

Wednesday, 20th July, was the day for CREATIVE WRITING AND POETRY WRITING COMPETITION for all the grades. Students had to write poems on interesting topics like ‘Magic show’, ‘Homework’, ‘My cozy spot at home’, ‘When everything goes wrong’, to name a few. Creative writing topics like ‘The idea hit me like a tornado’, ‘My journey on a pirate ship’; ‘The dark hallway’ highlighted our students powers of expression, empathy and critical reading and thinking.

Thursday, 21st July, was the day for ORATION AND DECLAMATION COMPETITION. Grades III-VII had been given the topic a few days in advance to prepare a speech for their oration. All the participants were well- prepared and even the little ones exhibited immense confidence and poise. Grade X students outdid themselves during the Declamation Competition. The participants did not make any attempt to mimic the original author of the speech. Instead, speakers developed an oration that delivered the message of the author in an original and engaging manner with clarity, emotion, and persuasiveness. Martin Luther King Jr, Abraham Lincoln, John Cena radiated on the faces of the participants. Mrs. Shukla Dasgupta, Headmistress of Delhi Public School, Nacharam, graced the occasion and judged the event and expressed great admiration for the children.

Friday, 22nd July, was the closing day of the Language Week with INTER-HOUSE DEBATE COMPETITION. Four houses were pitted against each other. The audience witnessed heated debates on discussed topics in today’s world. Topics like ‘Cinemas are only to entertain the masses’, ‘Private tuitions are a necessary evil’, to name a few. It seemed like the perfect choice considering most of the pre-teens and teens around the world are actively involved in cinema and private tuitions. Speakers conveyed their points, presented well-formulated arguments and spoke confidently to prove their point. The countering sessions spiced up the talk, making the debate more enjoyable. Mrs. Shruti Bhattarcharya , Head of the Department of English, Gitanjali Senior School, was the chief guest and the judge for the day.  



As a part of the CAS Programme the students of grade IX visited the ZILA PARISHAD SCHOOL on 27th July. Our students became thoroughly engaged in this process and truly understood the responsibility given to them. Our students sang a prayer song followed by interesting games and an interactive session. Their immersion in the interactions was remarkable. As a token of love, our students presented gifts to their new friends which were cherished and appreciated by them followed by a lunch at Suchitra campus. The self-realization of the fact that how small things give great happiness and how blessed all of us at Suchitra are, made the whole trip worth it.


The students of grade X visited DEVNAR SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND, BEGUMPET on 27th July. The purpose of this visit was to sensitize them to the ways in which the visually challenged cope with life and to recognize the blessing of ‘sight’ that we take for granted in our lives.

The students were taken around the school and were explained about the different resources used  to impart education to the visually challenged students. They enjoyed an interactive session and shared chocolates with their special friends. Somewhere it is said that scarcity brings out the best in a person. And that was quite clear from the visit. Surely as children walked out of those gates, they knew that something had changed in all of them—the way they saw things, the way they looked at others and most of all the way they looked at themselves.

SARVESH PARADKAR of GRADE X shares through his words how he took back a powerful lesson for himself:  “We received the unique opportunity to interact with the students. It was a joy to talk to our grade 10 counterparts. We got to see how they learn a variety of subjects using the Braille script and other auditory aids. From the chairman of the school, we learnt how several alumni, despite being visually impaired, have successfully pursued academics. Some have completed their CA, others are now in renowned law universities, engineering colleges and even gainfully employed in IT firms. We learnt how the students overcome their disability with sheer hard work and willpower. By doing so, they have managed to thrive in various paths of life. I took back one powerful message inscribed in my heart – if they can overcome the barriers of their disability to be happy and productive, then all the hurdles we conceive to our success are purely excuses.”


1st August                          : Holiday- Bonalu

8th -9th August                : Talen-Time: Inter-School Literary Competitions

11th August                       : Inter- House Patriotic Song Competition



Dear Parents the past week- Literary Week-  has been extremely hectic as for any competition, to get the final participants we start from the very grass root level. The whole process started more than 2 weeks back.  I can say with complete confidence that each and every child of the school was given an opportunity to participate and eventually those who showed that bit of extra talent came on to the stage and took away  top honours. Please rejoice in the fact that all are being groomed and given the opportunity to explore. Finally the winners are those who ace it at all levels. I am sure your child too is next in line and has the potential.

My apologies as we had many hiccups in trying to organise fee payment through ICICI Bank. The bank just could not get its software readied and as a result we cut a sorry picture.

We request you to come and pay the II Term Fee in school itself. Please do keep in mind the last date for Fee Payment – 31st July (without any late Fee).

Warm Regards

Namaste Dear Parents,

We are happy to keep you posted about the various events and happenings at Suchitra!! .

Please read on for some interesting news from the Suchitra Campus….




Now that monsoon is here, it’s the perfect time to introduce the Preschoolers to the science of gardening. Gardening allows the children to learn many life’s lessons.

On Monday 4th July we tried out our “Green Thumbs” to sow some seeds. During this activity, each child was provided with a small plastic cup. The children added soil to the cup, sprinkled seed on top of the soil and covered the seed with a bit more of soil. Each child had the opportunity to water the seeds and then place the cup in a sunny spot. After watering and nurturing the seeds for several days, they can now see what is happening with their cups. Our seeds have started to sprout!!!!

Planting seeds with young children is a valuable life project as that helps them see how seeds become alive! Besides they learn responsibility as they provide daily care to the new plants.


On Tuesday 5th July we had Mrs. Sherebanu Imani, Taher’s mother from Sr. KG and Mrs. Humera Fatima, Sufiyan’s mother from Nursery visiting the school to describe the holy month of Ramzan, when they fast and give up eating and drinking during the day. They explained that this is a time of prayer and for thinking of those who are less fortunate. Children were also treated to yummy sheer korma by the parents.

We would heartily like to thank Mrs. Sherebanu and Mrs. Humera for spending their valuable time and sharing valuable information on the festival of Ramzan.


The Preschoolers had the opportunity to visit the Chocolate Factory on Thursday 14th July. Mr Ajit Jain parent of Devansh was kind enough to allow the children visit the factory. The children were amazed at where the chocolate came from. They watched a demonstration of how chocolates were moulded, how they were wrapped and how they were packed in the cartons to be sent out. We had many questions for the owner of the factory and learned a lot about the process. It was a very ‘sweet’ visit as all the children got to eat and carry chocolates !!!! Thanks a lot Mr. Ajit Devansh.



Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th July***         – Medical camp

Friday 29th July                                         – Theme-end Presentation



The students of Grade VIII visited the Police station at Petbasheerabad on Friday, 1st July, as part of an interactive programme. The officials spoke to them about the way a police station functions. The students visited the control room and other facilities at the police station. It was a highly informative session with the Sub- Inspector where the children asked various questions ranging from their ranks, functions to use the handcuffs and the service revolver. Some were curious about how the control room functioned and how the wireless sets worked. They were excited to enter the cell (the lock-up) and enjoyed the few seconds of getting ‘locked up’. The children were extremely happy to have availed this opportunity as they learned a lot about the police station and the police force.

A Special Assembly depicting the importance of RAMZAN was presented on Tuesday, 5TH July by the students of Grade IV A. The essence of the month of Ramzan was highlighted through a ppt explaining the meaning and significance of the festival. The children spoke confidently discussing the various facets associated with Ramzan.

The presentation ended with a thought- provoking video showing kindness as one of the simplest and most important character trait someone can possess.

Another Special Assembly on the ENIGMA OF SHAKESPEARE was presented on Wednesday, 6TH July by the students of Grade VIII A. The assembly started with a ppt on Shakespeare which highlighted his life and works. The genius of Shakespeare was brought forth with enactment of a scene from the hilarious play “Much Ado About Nothing”. The entire presentation was put together beautifully and effective dialogues brought the characters to life.


As a special activity, grades I to III had COLLAGE MAKING on Van Mahotsav on Friday, 8th July. The mentors and students had a brain storming session and came up with some innovative and creative collages using different parts of plants. It was not only a fun activity but also a learning experience for the students. All the students were proud of their handiwork and posed excitedly with their masterpieces.



An INVESTITURE CEREMONY was conducted on Wednesday, 13th July to invest the newly appointed office bearers of the School Council to take charge. The programme began with a Ganesh Vandana dance. Colonel Manoj Gupta and Mrs Neeti Manoj, parents of the School Captain, were the Guests of Honour. Colonel Manoj Gupta is currently serving as the Commanding Officer at the Training Centre in Roorkee. He invested the student representatives with the office giving them the badge and the sash. The office bearers took their oath of office and pledged their loyalty to the school.

As you can see dear parents, our calendar is choc-a-bloc with plans for each and every grade. This is what we mean when we say that we are concerned about ‘all around’ development of the child. These are the experiences that shape your child’s thoughts and perceptions. The easiest thing to do is to sit in the class room and teach from a text book. But life doesn’t originate from a text-book!

This is our differentiator!

Please note the following to ensure overall discipline and order-

  1. Children can not come to school with fancy hair-cuts and fancy gadgets including wrist-watches!
  2. Sick children are not to be sent to school, at all, be it for a test or a spell bee. There is no half day permitted.
  3. Please send all the child’s belongings in the morning. It is not possible for us to deliver stuff to your child during the school hours.
  4. The overall turn out is checked on day to day basis, disciplinary action is taken against defaulters.
  1. Please speak to your child about how important it is to behave properly in the school bus. The children MUST sit in their allotted seats. Must not get up and walk around. Must not get into scuffles and fights. Must listen to Ayamma. If they are not cautious they can get hurt.
  1. Second Term Fees has to be paid by or before 31st Later than that there would be a late Fee charged.
  2. Our School Excursion in October (1st to 7th) to Delhi, Dalhousie and Amritsar is open to grades V to X.  50 children have already enrolled. We can take in another 10. Send in your names at the earliest please.

Warm Regards

Namaste Dear Parents

We are happy to keep you informed about the various events and happenings at Suchitra!! . The month of June was a blink and miss with a flurry of activities. It was exhilarating!!

Please read on for some interesting news from the Suchitra Campus….


June has come to an end! All the children have settled into their new routines extremely well. We have enjoyed watching new friendships blossoming and the reconnecting of friends from last year. You should all be very proud of your little ones as they are doing an amazing job of learning new routines, being responsible helpers and thoughtful friends. Needless to say, we are very excited for a wonderful year ahead!


Father’s day is a celebration honouring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society. We at Suchitra Academy celebrated FATHER’S DAY on Friday 24th June. Thank you everyone for your wonderful response to the Father’s Day celebration. It was truly heart warming for us to see such involved fathers. Thank you for being you. We appreciate your existence and the often times silent but impactful role you have been playing. You all rocked !


To understand that all living things grow and have various stages of growth, children were introduced to the LIFE CYCLE OF A BUTTERFLY through stories and videos. To understand the learning better children had the opportunity to see real larva, cocoon and caterpillar. On Wednesday 29th June to make the process of learning more fun teachers enacted the story of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and performed on a butterfly dance for the children.


On Saturday, 18th June all the new parents were invited for an Orientation Programme to put across the school philosophies and teaching methodology etc. Thank you so much for turning up in big numbers.

An ORIENTATION SESSION FOR NEW PARENTS was conducted on Saturday, 18th June. This session was an attempt to familiarize parents with the school and its practices. This meeting highlighted the mutual expectations to be shared and provided a better understanding of our teaching and learning process.

Parents of grades IX-X were specially invited to be familiarised with the CBSE and CCE practices. It is a pity that the most parents did not deem it fit to attend. The school works extremely hard to train the students and without sufficient parental support the purpose gets defeated. In fact most parents missing the day were the ones that most needed to be there. Hope in future we can expect better response.

NEWSLETTER 17th June, 2016

Namaste Dear Parents,

A very warm welcome to all the new students as well as those who come back after a vacation.

It is going to be a very busy and exciting year, with lots of learning opportunities and new experiences.

We know you will continue to work with us, so your child can grow in confidence, with a love of learning and a determination to be the best.


Welcome back! We hope you have had an enjoyable summer. The children have certainly had lots of exciting stories to share.

We also wish all our new students and families a special welcome, and  hope they will enjoy their time at Suchitra Academy.

Please ensure that, as parents you have a great value for school and education. Explain to your child that treating everyone with respect, being on time and wearing correct uniform is important. They are also important life skills. The value you place on these will be the value your child holds.

We in school will do everything we can to help your child to do the best. Let us know if we can support you in any way. Remember we have an open door policy. Feel free to fix an appointment with your child’s class teacher, if you have concerns or need support, help or advice.


Teachers have been busy last few days preparing for the 2016-17 school year. Teachers have participated in professional development courses to improve the instructional opportunities for students. Through these our goal is to improve student learning.


The safety of all the children is of utmost importance to us, and therefore we would just like to remind you that children must not be left unaccompanied in the school in the mornings before 08.15 a.m. Similarly, all children must be collected on time at the end of the school day. You MUST contact the school office if there is a change i.e another adult will be collecting your child.


We begin our term with the Theme ‘Change is Constant and Machines’.

Through this theme children’s attention will focus on the changes that occur everywhere, and every moment around us – of night turning into day, of fresh flowers in the morning drooping by evening.

But why and how do things change? Do they all follow the same pattern? Or do different things change differently? These are the questions that this theme will seek answers to.


Through this theme children will also learn about simple machines. Children will learn how these machines make our work easier. Hands-on-learning is always the best way to keep students engaged. In this theme children will observe and verbalize the differences in a variety of machines.


After the Nursery and Playgroup classes resumed on Wednesday 15th June, students of Pre-primary were gifted colourful glasses. These glasses will be retained in school to make their milk time more exciting.

There were a few surprises in store for them. Not only were their classrooms beautifully decorated but some classrooms had vanished and some new ones had come up!!! It took some time for them to get oriented with the new layout. The students were happy to receive welcome gifts from their teachers and enjoyed fun-filled activities, planned just for them.

Dear parents as you can see we have just started the session and we are headlong into ‘ACTION’. We would be starting the ECA too from Monday. Please refer to the class timetable to know your child’s activity days.

Please note-

As per your response in the feedback forms during the last PMI (16th March), we have introduced Sanskrit as III language. We have also changed the lunch time for junior classes. There were requests to monitor ECA (extracurricular activities) better. That too has been looked into.

Dear parents while we pay such close attention to what you say it will only be fair to expect that you too will do the same, with regard to our instructions. In my previous mail I had sent some dos and don’ts regarding discipline and turn out and I repeat some of those here.

Hair cut of the students and the Monday uniform are checked on every Monday. If not in order, defaulter students are sent back home. Prescribed haircut is evenly cut hair of not more than 1” length. (no fancy haircuts)

The overall turn out is checked on day to day basis, disciplinary action is taken against defaulters.

For the benefit of new admissions, please note discipline in all forms; whether it is punctuality, turn out, submitting Home Assignments in time or behaving and speaking in an appropriate manner- is most important to us. I am sure you share the same concerns too.

Together we can shape the future of our children and this country.

I will welcome responses from you.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey

Director Principal, Suchitra Academy






NEWSLETTER 22nd April 2016

Namaste dear parents

We take this opportunity to wish all our students and their parents a joyous summer vacation. Hopefully we will see all our students back at school ready for the literary week activities, quizzes and special assemblies.

Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra. The month of April was a blink and miss with a flurry of activities. It was exhilarating!! It was an amalgamation of academics, community and action experiences that are vital in supporting the academy’s holistic programme.


DENTIST VISIT12718023_1291219374226972_2808052821289662189_n

Our focus this week shifted from body hygiene to dental hygiene. We talked about how to keep our teeth clean and healthy. Children explored their feelings about going to the dentist for an appointment, during which few children expressed their discomfort about visiting a dentist.

To make the children aware of the importance of a Dentist, we had Dentist Dr. Y. Chandra Neela come and visit our school On Thursday 14th April. Children learned about the tools dentist uses to check our teeth. They also got the opportunity to look at real teeth mould. 12985542_1291219187560324_6241316208506314065_nChildren compared a child’s teeth to an adult’s teeth and realized that adults have many more teeth than the children’s. Children realized the importance of brushing twice each day. Through this session children learned new words like decay and cavities.


Thank you to all the parents who attended the PMI on Wednesday 20th April. We enjoyed talking with each one of you. Our conversations are extremely important to us. Open communication between parents and us plays a major role in our working together towards achieving the maximum potential of your child.


Monday 13th June                – School Re-opens for Sr. KG and Jr. KG

Wednesday 15th June         – School Re-opens for Playgroup and Nursery




On Tuesday, 12th April, 2016, students of grade V A presented a special assembly on the topic ‘GIVE A LITTLE, GET A LOT’. The assembly started with a thought- provoking video showing kindness as one of the simplest and most important character trait someone can possess. The students staged a skit which highlighted the fact that one random act of kindness, a simple compliment or expression of empathy will not only make the person’s day, but it will have a profound effect on yours, too. In the end, the students sang a melodious song that tuned towards the fact that the power to make the world a better place begins with us.


Mother Teresa once said, “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” The true meaning of life is the joy of giving. As part of the Community Service Programme our students had visited the Zila Parishad Primary School last year. This visit brought to light the lack of infrastructure in this school. Children sat on the floor, with their backs hunched for almost the entire day. We felt this could lead to bad posture, bad eyesight and could bring down their enthusiasm. Thus we came up with this idea of providing benches and we donated 15 benches to this school in an endeavour to help students to study more comfortably.

TEACH FOR CHANGE 13015686_1294532453895664_8371311133720083443_n

An interactive session was conducted for the students of grades IX-X on Monday, 18th April 2016. Our guest speaker Mr. Chaitanya MRSK is the Founder and CEO of Teach for Change. He is a young social activist working to make quality education inclusive in India. The session was extremely enriching!! His words not only enlightened but also motivated and inspired our students to identify their role in building a wider movement for educational equity in the country.



IMG_0063A workshop on “Buffer Time Management” was conducted on Tuesday, 19th April 2016. This session highlighted how a small time pocket or gap between two tasks in a class can be utilized efficiently to bring out the best in the students. This workshop equipped the teachers to design activities to engage the students so that any time can become a happy learning time. These activities can serve a general purpose that apply to various subject areas or be specific content-oriented activities that allow students to learn by tapping into multiple intelligences beyond the usual listening and recalling.
