Warm Greetings from SIS!
Like in the Rubik cube, the events at Sapphire International School display a riot of colours, but come together in our imagination with unsurpassable smoothness and spontaneity, representing a magical wholeness, a unique pattern that merges with our life within and outside the campus. These are like the music notes in a piano, which waft towards the world, as our spirits enter the reeds.
Take the Halloween Night for instance, where the mergence of our energy with the Gothic requirements of the occasion was complete. Strange, unearthly faces gathered in an atmosphere of wild revelry, dancing to the tune of reverberating music, watched by mesmerized onlookers. The night was a one of the most fun-filled soirees of November, 2017. We must not forget that Sapphire teaches us the great value of social empathy. The following ‘Smile Sunday’ was spent not merely in the movie hall, but also in the company of orphans with ‘Peastalozzi’. In sports, medals came to Sapphire from the CBSE National Skating Competition in Bhopal. Later in the month the SIS Cricket field was the scene of frenetic activity as the Inter-House Cricket matches were played with incomparable zest.
The Sapphire catholicity was evident in the organization of events, for very soon a Robotics Workshop was followed by a Blood Donation Camp. We cannot fail to mention that the latter coincided with the Annual Exhibition, which was a stupendous success. Students braved the might of the sun to showcase the extraordinary deftness that went into their projects, and awed the honourable guests with detailed explanations of the thematic aspects of their work.
The third week of the month witnessed our participation in the 4th Bengal Junior Open Squash Championship besides giving us an insight into the wondrous skills of small boys and girls in the Ranchi District Inter-School Karate Championship. While Kirti Sharma talked to her schoolmates about the divine effects of “Pranic Healing” on Children’s Day, the day itself became magical with all Teachers sending everyone into a virtual trance with their exquisite performances in skits, dances, and songs!
In the three Circle Time slots during the month the school saw some memorable performances during “Role Play”, quite ingenuously created paintings and pictures during the “Poster Making Competition”, and novel methods of classroom decoration under the redoubtable expertise of teachers.
Not to be outdone the Sports Department came up with the Inter-House Karate Tournament, and the Inter-House Basketball Tournament. However, the event that stole the show was the 63rd Jharkhand State School Boys & Girls Squash Championship/Selection Trial 2017-18. Seven of our students were selected for the SGFI National, Jharkhand Squash team.
We cannot fail to mention the important note on which the month of November, 2017 ended. The School was the venue for the “Cyber Mom Training”, jointly organized by Google and Cyber Peace Foundation and supported by National Commission for Women. It was felt very strongly by the Management that mothers needed to be sensitized towards the rampant misuse of the Internet by children. But not all was wariness; they were also informed about the many useful things that they could do with it, sitting at home not only for domestic purposes, but also in the professional world.
With best wishes,
