Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and then staying with that plan. – Tom Landry
Namaste Dear Parents,
It is going to be another busy and exciting Term, 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.
Here’s the fortnightly round up of the medley of activities at Suchitra before we closed. Please read on for some interesting news from the Campus….
NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY
Theme-end presentation was held on Wednesday 28rd September. It was awesome to see the Nursery kids stand on the stage and talk so confidently. The Jr. and Sr. KG Kids were incredible, the Hindi poem on the farmer and English poem dedicated to our soldiers was heart warming. The tri colour dance and the flag formation was mesmerizing. Thank you parents for being there and encouraging our kids. They performed amazingly well and your overwhelmed response brought further validation to us.
THANKING OUR ‘HELPING HANDS’
Through this theme Kids had the opportunity to listen to stories about community helpers. We read stories and talked about the various community helpers that help us in different ways. We sometimes take them for granted and in the big rush of life, forget to say a special thanks to the people who help us day in and day out.
So on Thursday 29th September, we at Suchitra Academy Pre-school, gifted bedsheets and steel containers to the Aayamas and security, to tell them how much they all mean to us.
We also appreciate all the parents who donated bedsheets for this event. A big thank you to you from us.
After all the hard work through the term it was celebration time, we organised a term-end party on Friday 30th September. Children enjoyed the goodies and danced merrily to the sound of music.
TERM-END PMI (Parent Mentor Interaction)
Term-end PMI was held on Saturday 1st October, thank you to all the parents who took time out to fill our survey. We will look in to your suggestions and concerns and do our best and we will share the feed back with you shortly.
Thursday 13th October – School Re-opens
Tuesday 18th October – Eye camp
NEWS FROM PRIMARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL
COOKING WITHOUT FIRE
Children of Grades I, II & III had immense fun on the last day of their term tests by trying out their culinary skills for the activity COOKING WITHOUT FIRE. They enjoyed being Chefs for a day and presented their dishes beautifully proving that they are no less in this art too. Children presented variety of dishes, Gr I with Puffed Rice Peanut Butter Balls, Gr II Sandwiches and Gr III Potato Fillers. On the whole it was a fun filled activity for both children as well as the teachers.
INTER-HOUSE SWIMMIMG COMPETITION
The much awaited SWIMMING COMPETITION was held at the school swimming pool on Wednesday, 28th September. All the students and teachers were enthusiastically cheering the students and their house relay teams. There was a lot of excitement in the air and some of the students displayed excellent swimming styles and techniques.
The students of grades VII-VIII displayed their acting prowess through the THEATRE PRESENTATION on Friday, 30th September. Each and every student of each grade/section participated and presented wonderful plays. The throw of voice, the handling of the mikes and the superb acting of every student amazed the audience. It was wonderful to see the shy students deliver their dialogues almost like a professional! Our objective of giving each and every child an opportunity to be on stage and face the crowd confidently was more than met. Thank you Sunita and Aarti for your untiring efforts and putting up a wonderful show within the very short time that we gave you.
SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR
To ensure that the students get access to the best books for their reading levels and interests a BOOK FAIR by SCHOLASTIC was held on Saturday, 1st October. It was an exploratory time when kids browsed through books about real-life experiences, fun facts, love and friendship. Popular, age-appropriate titles to engage older readers, relevant topics and current, relatable issues attracted even the reluctant readers. On the PMI day Scholastic did a whopping sale as you people bought the books that the children had identified. Hope children and you, both read those books together.

In the mean time our Excursion that has gone to Dalhousie and Amritsar etc. will be returning tonight, after a fantastic break. It will be a pleasure and relief to welcome them back.
Hope you are having a good time with your children and enjoying the festival too.
