June - 2017

From The Principal...

Web’ our newsletter, is the reflection of our educational intent, to bring a qualitative wave of invigorating change at SIS. We are delighted to share the excitement of bringing “ international mindedness “ at our school, where the children are being encouraged to ThinkChooseAct and Reflect. The students find this approach engaging and result oriented, and something which is a spontaneous and intensive urge to use their curiosity to explore and learn.
The month of April began with electronic voting to form a brand new School Council for the current school year. The Investiture Ceremony set the right tone for the academic year to strengthen the students’ leadership programme wherein the prefects would be expected to exhibit exemplary conduct at ALL times by being the real ROLE MODELS to the rest of the school. They would unfailingly uphold the HIGHEST standards that would comprise uniform, adherence to school rules, effort, attendance, punctuality, attitude, respect, manners, and genuine motivation to work. Along with activities such as these and more, the SIS policy of excellence in academics is never compromised on. Our teachers continue to ensure that all students under their care strike the right balance between co-scholastic activities and consistent scholastic work. ‘Web’ is a great initiative to build a learning community and to showcase the actual vibrations of activities on the SIS campus with focused features on all forthcoming events.
We would appreciate your suggestions and feedback on the same to make “Web” better and enriched.

 

With best wishes,

Dhruba Das

Yoga Workshop

Sapphire International School conducted a yoga workshop on the 18th of April, 2017 in the school premises under the guidance of the Guest Yoga coach, Mr. Indrajit Chakraborty (Master in Yoga, Yoga-Indra, D.M.Y.M, N.I.S Coach), President and Secretary of Ranchi Yoga Culture, 

Over the last 100 years, our lives have become exceedingly fast paced with the constant use of cell phones, the Internet, the television. This, along with a strong work ethic, and exam pressure often makes adults as well as children undergo a lot of stress and fatigue.  Ultimately, there is a strong need to de-stress to quiet our minds and rejuvenate our bodies, and Yoga can help us achieve this, by inducing a state of salubrious balance between our work and our lifestyle.

The workshop was well taken by the students who were greatly motivated to practise yoga. Sapphire International School continues to conduct special yoga classes for the whole school every Tuesday.

"The Call of Snow"

Sapphire International School believes in giving its students a holistic approach towards life. Believing in the spirit of Adventure, Challenge & Entertainment, students of classes VI-XII were taken on an adventure trip to the pristine mountains of Himachal Pradesh under the able supervision of three teachers and two tour coordinators from 'Torna Holidays' of Delhi. Twenty children from the school packed their bags to face the best experience of their life from 10th to 18th of May, 2017.

The expedition to take on the mighty Himalayas began on May 10th, when the adventurers boarded the Rajdhani Express for New Delhi. After a short stint at a water park on the outskirts of Delhi, the journey continued to reach Mcleodganj via Chandigarh. At Chandigarh the visit to “Sukhna Lake” and the Rock Garden by Nek Chand were heart warming.

The children woke up early the next morning (13th of May, 2017) to the breath-taking view of Mcleodgang valley, surrounded by majestic Deodars. For the trek, the children were divided into three groups with leaders of their own. The 9.0 km. rocky trek to Tirund was indeed exhausting and challenging, and took around five hours.

The trek instilled in our students the need to respect our resources, to become physically active and mentally alert, and they realised that every adventure starts with “I CANNOT” but ends with an “I DID IT”. On the night of 14th May 2017, the children reached ‘Hotel Royal Residency’, Khajjiar.

They woke up late in the morning after a good rest, took a heavy breakfast and walked down towards Khajjiar Lake. Khajjiar falls in the Chamba district, and often referred to as the ‘Mini Switzerland’. On the 16th of May, everyone woke up early to begin the long journey from Khajjiar to the Aravali Orchards via Dalhousie, Pathankot and Delhi.

It was almost 2:00 a.m. on 17th May, when the children reached Aravali Orchards. In the morning the trainers motivated the children to participate in some military style adventure sport like, the Burma Bridge, Tyre Wall, Scaffold Ladders,Plank Balance, Commando Net, Stilt Walk, Zig-Zag, and the like. The children also enjoyed a ride on a horse cart, and some of the senior students ventured into cooking 'bread omelette'. The activities not only enhanced their physical strength and confidence, but also tested their skill and courage. At around 12:30 p.m. the children reluctantly packed their bags for New Delhi Railway Station  to catch the Rajdhani Express for Ranchi.  The Call of the Snow cast a lasting impression on each one of us.
