The first month of the academic year proceeded quite as we planned with renewed memories and lots of learning. It is indeed a feeling of happiness to see the new students accustom themselves to this atmosphere and the old students graduate into a higher class with positivity and smiles. At the outset, I would like to heartily welcome all the new students, teachers and parents who have joined our team this year. Our school website is a collection and documentation of all the events and happenings in our school throughout the academic year. We believe that parents need to have an access to the school whenever they wish to know what is happening rather than waiting for the PTM, and the school website is an active source.
While the first month of the academic session included a lot of new learning, the second month included various testing techniques in the form of written and vocal. We conducted the first set of Formative Assessments in the month of July and soon after the exams we had also arranged for a parent teacher meeting. PTMs in Voxpop are taken very seriously as it is the biggest and the strongest platform for parent teacher communication. Your child’s growth and his learning curve can be discussed in every PTM and hence we insist all the parents to be present.
Our young Voxpopians also took to protecting the nature and environment this month and vowed to protect it forever. All the students were encouraged to participate in the Swachh Bharat programme and clean the school premises and its surroundings.
Environment week was celebrated in Voxpop wth sapling day, where students planted saplings and made it a point to water them each day. The students put in tremendous efforts to make placards and skits and rallies to help understand the importance of environment to their fellow classmates and juniors. As a part of environement week the students were taken to Botanical gardens and state forest and were given a trip round the place by the authorities .
In the process of teaching our pre-primary students colours, we created the concept of yellow day, where the students, teachers and the rest of the management came dressed in yellow.
We take good steps to teach our children and inculcate the right habits and we are thankful to all the parents for their support.
In the 8th administration year of Voxpop International school, we have once again vowed to move forward with zeal, enthusiasm and undying efforts to mould the lives of our students and give them a school life that they can look back to and smile.
As a school, we have always focussed on holistic development of a child and to achieve this we have conducted various activities and events in the school that provide different forms of learning to our kids
The academic year began with the teacher interface where the parent community was invited to meet, talk and bond with their child’s teachers. We believe that teachers are second parents and it is absolutely necessary that the child and his parents get to know their teacher and discuss with each other the growing process and the learning structure of a child. Our teachers have never let us down and have taken on point care of each and every student.
For any school to run successfully, the parents, the teachers and the students need to celebrate a bond that nothing can break. In this age of modern leadership, it is necessary that schools encourage students to make decisions, participate and conduct events and feel accountable for their actions. Keeping this in mind, every year we conduct the student council elections where the student leaders put in their citations, get nominated and conduct themselves for the post they have applied for. In the month of June, one can find the school campus filled with campaign events and posters. Elections are held in a fair and dignified manner and the student leaders are elected. Student council elections are one event that the entire team of Voxpop looks forward to. For once students take over the responsibility of the school and teachers turn into mere spectators. Alike any other government in the country, we follow the old school process of investiture ceremony and crown our students with their badges and declare to them their responsibilities. As a team we are all on the same page when it comes to allowing students explore their interests and try a hand in new things and if that is what it takes for a child to have a happy schooling and an overall growth, we always take the first step.
Health is an important factor that plays a crucial role in the lives of every individual. Vitamins and nutrition is one concept that is effectively taught to PP students and as a part of this curriculum students were requested to bring balanced diet for one week straight. The age of 5 and above is a moulding age for little kids and we believe that right habits and positive things should be taught to kids at that age for a lifelong impact. Green day and sapling plantation is one activity we strongly take up each year telling our students the importance of green and clean nature.
It is appreciable and commendable that our students have given in active participation and I am greatly thankful to my parent community for this immense support.
On behalf of the staff at Voxpop International School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year! I hope you have had an enjoyable summer. The children have certainly had lots of exciting stories to share.
We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential .We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities
We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
We in school will do everything we can to help your children to do their best.
Can you ensure that, as parents you put a great value of school and education? Explain to your child that treating everyone with respect, being on time and in school every day, wearing the correct uniform and working hard in school is important to you. They are also important life skills. The value you place on these will be the value your child holds.
We are all busy people, but you must put a routine in place whereby children know they must do their home learning – homework, reading etc… At this time, turn the television/computer off. Use the television/computer as incentives for work done – they will value it more.
Remember that you can walk in and share your feedback and suggestions with me. Let us work together to make your child a wonderful human being.
Wishing you a great and happy year ahead!
