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,

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)

INTER-HOUSE KHO-KHO COMPETITION  dscn0008

The final round of the INTER-HOUSE KHO-KHO Competition was held on Thursday, 12th September. It was a nail-biting contest where the audience was at the edge of their seats, cheering for their respective houses. This competition helped the students develop strong bonds of solidarity and act as a great motivating force inculcating true sportsman spirit and competitive streak. SUKRITI HOUSE (boys team) and PRAKRITI HOUSE (girls team) emerged as winners.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLY

A special assembly on the topic INDOMITABLE WILL was presented by the students of Grade VI A on Wednesday, 14th September. The children exhibited immense confidence and poise while speaking. The skit explained that ‘true strength is an indomitable will’ depicting examples from history about great achievers, who showed enormous willpower to achieve their dreams. The presentation was successful in putting across the fact that strength has little meaning in the world when you cannot have the inner strength to face life.

WORKSHOPS

  1. A workshop “FIRST STEP IS THE LAST STEP” was conducted by Krishnamurti img_20160906_143433Foundation India, held at Besant School, Rajghat Fort, Varanasi. It was attended by our Vice-Principal Ms Deepa Kapoor and Librarian Ms Manjula from 6th to 9th September. The workshop revolved around watching videos on Jiddu Krishnamurti’s talks around the world, followed by discussions on those topics by the guests.  It was an exhilarating experience, encouraging them to delve deep into their thoughts. 
  2. I attended a Conference-cum-workshop conducted by Dr. Kobus Neetherling from South Africa on 13th September at The Park Hotel. It was an amazing work shop where Dr. Kobus spoke on ‘FROM ORDIANRY TO BEYOND’. Dr Kobus is a world celebrated speaker, author of 99 books, Guinness World Record holder ( He wrote a 110 page book in 4 and a half minutes- From Impossible to Possible) and a trainer on ‘CREATIVITY AND PASSION’. It was an extraordinary experience to be able to hear him.

SIMPLE MACHINES 

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.

RAIN DANCE

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.

LANGUAGE WEEK BEGINS

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.  

CAS PROGRAMME: VISIT TO ZILA PARISHAD SCHOOL, VENELLAGADDA

20160727_110240_Richtone(HDR)

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.

VISIT TO SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND

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.”

20160722_102305

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).
