From The Principal...

Dear Parents,

Warm Greetings from SIS!

Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!.” – Anne Frank

We all in the family of SIS are excited and waiting for this well deserved Summer Vacation. But let's not forget to instill in us  how good we are and how much potential we have, to do the best for the society we live in.

This month our theme was 'Responsibility' and 'Positivity'. Through tableau and skit, children learnt about being a good citizen of our country, to be a responsible individual having good character and also from the life of Stephen William Hawking, an English theoretical physicist.

We hosted the 1st 'The Shoot to Win Shooting Championship'. Our students participated and brought laurels to the school. The other competitions which were held in school were Yoga workshop, Inter House Carrom and Chess competitions. We also conducted workshops on yoga and shooting.

In the IIMUN Chapter of Ranchi 2018, where approximately 300 delegates congregated from 27th to 29th April 2018,  22 students from our school participated.

This summer we hope tha you all will have a wonderful break spending time with your children.

With best wishes,

Over the last 100 years, our lives have become exceedingly fast paced with cell phones, Internet, television, etc. These, along with work and exam pressure, often make adult as well as children experience lot of stress and fatigue. This leads to a strong need to de-stress to calm our minds and rejuvenate our bodies. Yoga helps us to achieve this, maintaining a state of balance, a peaceful mind and good health. Mr. Indrajit discussed the history and importance of yoga. Students chanted mantras and started the yoga session with simple stretching exercises followed by the Aasanas like the Tree pose, the Warrior pose, the Cobra pose etc. The 12 postures of Surya Namaskar was demonstrated and taught to the students.

Students were also taught breathing exercises like 'humming bee breath', 'Sanmukhi Mmudra' (closing of the six gates) and 'Anulom-Vilom' (alternate breathing) and were told the benefits of doing these Pranayamas in our daily life. Children thoroughly enjoyed the laughing yoga at the end and the workshop was finally concluded with a brief meditation session. Our guest, Mr. Indrajit was felicitated by our Principal Mr. Dilip George. The workshop was highly appreciated by the students who were highly motivated to practice yoga every day.

Field Trip (2 - 5)

“Gracious steps, nimble footed

The growing tots went on board.

Nature’s love God’s favourite

They have become.

They are special, they are kind

In God’s garden they are the blessed mind!!”

 The primary students of Sapphire International School (Grades 2-5) were blessed to witness nature’s special grace. They got an opportunity to visit the special kids of St. Michael’s School for the blind.

It was a learning experience for the children as they could relate and connect with their current Unit of Inquiry – ‘Who We Are?’ Generally, the students learn from books but it was the first intimate experience for them this session.

As they have learnt about The Human Body, Parts of the Body and Sense Organs, they were able to relate it to their knowledge. Further, the students also learnt the moral value to be kind, thoughtful and benevolent. The students could acknowledge God’s grace bestowed upon them. They found themselves fortunate and blessed to have the benefits of proper functioning sense organs.

This trip also inculcated the sense of responsibility towards self and the underprivileged. It ran parallel with the school’s theme – ‘Responsibility’. The students of both the schools exchanged their talents by showcasing a wonderful medley followed by the on spot performance by our students.

Further, the students got a wonderful opportunity to see the Braille and got their names written in the Braille script. A few enthusiastic ones also tried their hand on pinning the Braille.

At the end our students showed their love and care by sharing cakes, chocolates, biscuits, fruit, juice and many more things. Above all the students had a gala time in sharing, spreading love and long lasting memories to relish and cherish.

“Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will!”
