NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY

THEME : MARVELLOUS ME

mybodyThe theme Marvellous Me was introduced on Monday , 3rd April. My body and body parts are the focus of this theme. It’s time to discover what makes our bodies special. We will do lots of thinking, exploring and creating together. Children will learn to name body parts, their location and that all parts in their body work together like an engine. Children will also learn about the five sense organs and how these organs help us to enjoy the world around us.

Lesson on our emotions and feelings will help children to understand, cope with and express their feelings and emotions, as well as develop and express an awareness of self. Children will be encouraged to express thoughts, feelings, and ideas using language.

TEETH BRUSHING

The early years in a child’s development are the best time for a child to learn about oral health and develop a positive attitude about good dental habits. We have been talking to our children about why it is important to keep our teeth healthy. With our oral dental activity on Thursday , 6th April ,we demonstrated how to brush teeth and encouraged children to brush their teeth in proper way. Brushing, eating tooth-friendly foods, and going to see the dentist are just some of the topics children will learn about.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLIES

      UGADI PACHADI-TASTE OF LIFE!!

20170328_084946On Tuesday, 28th March, the students of Grades V-IX presented a special assembly on the occasion of UGADI. The assembly focused on the importance of Ugadi, discussed the meaning of the festival and how it is celebrated in different parts of India. It was an occasion for all of us to learn and remember. The constant mention of the Ugadi Pachadi and the various ingredients that make it,  reminded us of the various facets of life and to prepare ourselves for the year ahead.

SAY NO TO BULLYING

Another special assembly on the topic SAY NO TO BULLYING was presented on Tuesday, 4th April, by the students of Grade IX. The message was to ‘Make a Noise’ against bullying. The students spoke about how they could use their powers for good by standing up to people, being brave, speaking out, helping and being kind to each other. The presentation culminated with a meaningful song that projected the harsh reality that “…….Sometimes words that hurt the most, start as a joke or a boast.”

CLASS GOALS AND RULES

Better that rules are agreed between teacher and learners and best that they are established ‘up front’. The age, maturity, size and purpose of the group is important in this regard.  Keeping this in mind, a SPECIAL ACTIVITY was conducted on Thursday, 30th March. The students across Grades I-X enjoyed as they collaborated their ideas and opinions and formulated class goals and rules.  Giving them a hand in creating the rules made them realize the importance of the responsibility given to them.

Dear Parents, though the summers are hitting the peak, we at Suchitra are lucky to be in a relatively cooler environment because of the trees on campus. Besides, the rooms are air-conditioned and so are the buses. In case of a power cut there is our generator. We plan to run the school till the scheduled dates in April, unless some serious situation arises. We have no plans to close the school early as we see no merit in that as yet.

Kindly help us in maintaining discipline of punctuality, proper turn-out and timely submission of Home Assignments etc. It’s only with your support that we can enforce the quality we want.

 

Warm Regards

Namaste Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that the end of the school year has arrived; time has flown away so quickly.The year’s end always brings with it a tremendous sense of accomplishment. So many things have been accomplished this year. Our students have been involved in an extraordinary number of activities and of course, we should not forget the tremendous amount of learning which has taken place during the year.

Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra. Please read on for some interesting news from the Campus….

Graduation Day

Preschool Graduation, a Milestone worth Celebrating.

On Wednesday, 22nd February, the Sr. KG students earned their moment of honour as they paraded around in their graduation caps and capes. 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.

MEET OUR BOOK SOLDIERS…

DSCN3370.JPG

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.

AFTER AN EXTREMELY EVENTFUL AND FASCINATING YEAR, FINALLY THE MUCH-AWAITED DAY ARRIVED ON 22nd February!!

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.

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.

If the children have been regular in their study habits, there will be no cause for concern. We have always ensured that we get feedback from you parents- please do have a glance at the last page where parents have commented on the Project Based Learning that was conducted in classes this last week and for which we got an overwhelming response.

Please keep the Portion and Date Sheet well preserved as in the past I have seen kids come to school prepared for a wrong subject on the day.

The children showcased a heartwarming rendition of different scenes from the Ramayana. In fact the children were excited to perform the short dramatization of the scenes in their own special way. It was also wonderful to see them confidently moving on the stage performing and coordinating their parts in the play, moving props, mikes and sometimes even prompting.

The students of grade VII B presented a beautiful fan-dance giving an expression to their patriotic emotions. It was a perfect tribute to our motherland that reminded us that our country has flourished despite adversities.

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.

                                                      SPORTS DAY SPECIAL

dsc05421

A DREAM DOESN’T BECOME REALITY THROUGH MAGIC: IT TAKES SWEAT. DETERMINATION AND HARD WORK.

Namaste Dear Parents,

The most awaited event of the year the SPORTS DAY CUM FOUNDER’S DAY of Suchitra Academy was cele-brated on Wednesday, 16th November.

It was a day of sports extravaganza. It was a day of leaving the parents spell bound by the meticulous dis-cipline at display. It was a day to showcase all the qualities Suchitra strives hard to inculcate.

Besides being an event to be cherished the Sports day met innumerable learning goals.

– The two weeks of rigorous practice taught the students that the fabric of unity is strengthened by team work and equal hard work. This unity in action and effort gave way to the huge success that made the children proud of themselves.

– This event was like holding a torch that bright-ened the students’ understanding of culture and beauty.

– It increased participation levels (no child was left behind), widened the talent pool and helped young children realize their own mettle, push their limits and crown their efforts with success.

– It heightened their sense of melody and rhythm.

– It taught them how to square their shoulders and march, how to compete and how to win or lose grace-fully.

– It made them appreciate how talented their teachers were. It made them understand that Perfection is not by chance or accident, it is result of tears, toil and tremen-dous dedication.

– It made them understand beauty and grace, song and dance, hard work and meticulous planning, and attention to smallest detail.

– It made them have FUN !

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EVENTS

The dance drills were the highlight of the day. Grade I with their “Jog to Rock” and the “Workout Wonders” of grades II-IV made the audience groove along with the children. The “Suchitra Harmonic” by grades V-VIII, with their colours of patriotism received a standing ovation from the audience. Each drill show-cased the children’s hard work and perfection. The karate and gymnastics display enthralled one and all.

Brig V V Reddy, Vishisht Seva Medal winner and pres-ently looking after all the educational institutions which come under the Telangana and Andra Subarea of the Indian Army, was the guest of honour for the day. He appreciated the spirit of sportsmanship among the children and highlighted the importance of a healthy mind in a healthy body. He seemed surprised to know that the school was founded in June 2011 and was just 5 year old. According to him it showed the maturity and organistaion of a much senior school.

THE WINNERS OF THE DAY

The best house in co-curricular activities : SANSKRITI

The best house in sports                              : DHRITI T

he best marching contingent                      : DHRITI

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS

The only sour note appeared, in an otherwise perfect-10 programme, when the 4 flood lights did not get switched on by the people manning the controls ( the sup-

pliers )

And

Then an amazing thing happened. AU you dear parents lit up the ground with little stars or hundreds of ‘fireflies’ (your phones) and the ground took on a surreal fairy tale look.

Thank you so much for being such supportive audience and partners ( except the solitary lady who was furious with us for messing up things in the end ).

BEHIND THE SCENES

1.Suchitra 1-larrnonic- the finale performance won a lot of accolades. But do you know how it came into being? It began with olana, English teacher who remembered a programme in her school which showed Unity in Diversiw. The seed was planted and it took root. Poonarn took it from there, made song selections and aided Mr Ramesh with the choreography.Our Principal, Renu Shorey was right in the centre of all things- her single minded conviction that the song Hat har Mahadev would aid in the over all effect was proved right- the theatrical nature of the performance was needed to ma. it so effective.

2. Listening to the foot- tapping Bhangra number during practice sessions would make students dance wherever they were in the school grounds.

3. Watching the lackadaisical marching of the students, The Principal, Made a decision to have an expert teach them. And who would be an expert, but an army man is And so, another search began. Sajitha whose husband is in the armY and Cher our resident warehouse of Arm resources Promptly came up with Naik l<VS Rao who was patient with the students, but determined . have thernmarch to his tune! Hence het pliable. almost boneless walks of the children turned into MARCHING I

4.And Suchitrans being Suchitrans- we needed a WOW factor to end it with a BANG. An idea to release flaming lanterns into the sky was suggested and tested- nobody was happy with the time element and the percentage of danger and so another idea was born. The clock was ticking (the D Day was around the corner)as well as ideas in people’s brains- and Voila, Poonam hit the nail on the head when she came up with the idea of teachers walking in with lighted torches! Buying them seemed an unnecessary waste of money- Suchitrans believe in conservation, remember? Then the idea germinated in Deepa Kapoor’s mind , why the torches couldn’t be made indigenously with the pipes lying around took shape ( Our multi talented driver Mr. Solomon, turned into a welder) and what you saw was the delightful spectacle of teachers walking into the ground with flaming torches!

Warm Regards,

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….

THEME ‘FARM TO THE TABLE AND TRANSPORT’

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.

EYE CAMP

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.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Friday 28th October               – Diwali Celebration

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

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!
