  • Grand Presentation - Grade V

    +

    The students of Grade V put together the Grand Presentation on 1st December 2018 themed “Island of Feelings”. A musical ensemble of students sang the Welcome Song inviting the eager parents to the event.

    The presentation conveyed the story of an island whose inhabitants were feelings, namely, Happiness, Vanity, Sadness, and Love. Upon hearing the news that the island will sink to the bottom of the ocean, all feelings except for Love prepare their boats to leave the island. Love decides to stay back and preserve the island’s paradise until the last moment. When the time arrives for Love to leave the island, none of the feelings were willing to extend a helping hand. An elderly man, however, aids Love and helps it to the land. Love then meets Knowledge to find out it was Time who came to its rescue.

    The moral of the presentation was that time heals everything and can understand how great Love is. When things may look bleak, Time can solve anything. Things may not have a solution today, but tomorrow one will.

    CHIREC International School, the New Age school which set a benchmark for holistic education in Telangana State, celebrated their 30th Anniversary at Shilpakala Vedika on 3rd October 2018. Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, the Hon`ble Vice President of India, graced the occasion as the chief guest. He was accompanied by the dignitaries, Home Minister of Telangana, Shri Naini Narshimha Reddy, our Founder Director, Mrs. Ratna Reddy, and the chairman of Shri Shakti Group, Mr. D. V. Manohar.

    The evening began with Swagathanjali, a vibrant invocatory dance ballet by CHIREC students, welcoming the Hon`ble Chief Guest. Swagathanjali wove together four dance forms to depict the essence of CHIREC International School, and was choreographed by National Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee, Ms. Deepika Reddy.

    A short film about CHIREC was unveiled, depicting CHIRECs diverse journey. From its inception to laying the foundation stone, the film showcased the rise of CHIREC as a pioneer in holistic education, with a program that balances academics with extra-curricular activities. The video captured the true essence of CHIREC when it displayed multitude of student`s activities in sports and education.

    Mrs. Ratna Reddy, Founder Director of CHIREC International School, addressed the gathering by talking about her journey and excitement to look forward to CHIREC`s coming decades as the school establishes itself in the hearts of many parents and students as one of the most innovative schools in the country. She discussed some of CHIREC`s plans, including the upcoming 9.5-acre international campus with state-of-the-art sports facilities. To encourage and foster innovation, Mrs. Ratna unveiled CHIREC Innovation Hub (C-Hub), a first-of-its-kind innovation hub in Hyderabad for students to design, experiment, build and invent novel solutions to the world`s problems.

    Mr. D. V. Manohar, Chairman of the Shri Shakti Group, spoke about Mrs. Ratna`s endeavours in curating CHIREC at every step, spanning decades. He invited the Hon`ble Chief Guest to unveil the Veni Rao Foundation, a charitable trust in memory of the late parents of Mrs. Ratna Reddy and Mr. D.V. Manohar. On behalf of the Veni Rao Foundation, the Vice-President distributed scholarships to meritorious candidates to recognize their academic achievements. These students, whose family income is less than Rs. 10000/- and have secured more than 85% in their qualifying examinations, hail from across Hyderabad and Rajahmundry.

    The Vice President, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu took to the stage and said that India is quickly becoming a global leader and lifting millions out of poverty and added that the country requires skilled youth to accelerate the growth process. He addressed the audience and stressed on the need to teach students the diverse culture and heritage of India. He expressed his disappointment when he underscored how students are memorizing and reproducing texts, thus hampering their intellectual growth.

    The Vice President suggested that educational institutions and policy makers must take steps to reduce the burden on students. He said, “I feel that the overall education system from school level to higher education should be completely revamped to ensure our institutions churn out ideal citizens. First and foremost, the syllabus at the school level must be drastically cut to reduce the load on students. The time spent by students in school should be divided equally between the classroom and play field.”

    Shri Venkaiah Naidu talked about how CHIREC grooms its students to be leaders who will change the global landscape in a positive way. He also applauded CHIRECs eco-friendly initiatives incorporated into the routines of the students by integrating the environment and sustainable initiatives throughout the school through academics, management, policies, and community activities.

    The Vice President was presented a pencil sketch of himself by a CHIREC student.

    Show and Tell – Students take the initiative to bring their favourite toy/ object to the class and describe it. This helps them develop their speaking skills, and build their vocabulary.

    Painting, Colouring, Arts and Crafts – Students tap into their creativity and explore ideas by producing collages, finger prints, block prints, vegetable prints and tissue paper art.

    Clay-modelling / Pottery – Clay modelling helps develop fine motor skills and neuro- muscular and hand-eye coordination. This helps in bringing about activeness and curiosity in students.

    Interactive Play – Play helps children develop and improve their gross and fine motor skills, coordination and concentration. It teaches them to work cooperatively and collaboratively, using all their senses to discover and explore their environment, and develop their imagination, creative thinking, problem solving skills and experiment with solutions.

    Music and Finger play – Singing songs and reciting poems and rhymes helps children develop early literacy skills. Keeping a steady beat develops language. Clapping hands, stamping feet, and using rhythm instruments in line with music develops important pre-reading skills. Young children recognize words, sounds, rhythms, tones, and pitch long before they talk, sing, or dance. So, the more music the children have in their lives, the better they will speak and read.

    Circle Time – Circle Time is set aside for all the students to share their thoughts, listen to one another, actively participate together, introduce new concepts and ideas and generally build a sense of respect and support for one another. Storytelling and Role Play – Using various aids like puppets, models, drama, etc.. Puppets foster leadership, performance, and sometimes, even the courage to stand in front of our peers. Puppets also foster social interaction, communication, role playing, imagination, storytelling, and listening abilities.

    Music is Fun programme from Furtados Music – Considering benefits of music, this special programme has been integrated into the Early Years Curriculum. The teachers have undergone special training to impart this in the classes. This programme works as an enabler for improved hand-eye coordination, enhanced understanding of sound, rhythm, singing, movement and also adds to reading, math and emotional development

    Oxford Reading Programme – This programme has been integrated in the Early Years Curriculum. Specialised training has equipped the teachers to deliver this programme effectively. This has levelled approach which caters to all types of learners starting from beginners to fluent readers.

    Safe Surroundings – CCTVs in the campuses and buses provide close supervision of all areas of the campus. Lady Conductors travel in buses along with children. Concepts like a Pick Up Permit Card ensure that the child is handed over to authorized hands only. RFID cards help to track the movement of the students.

    Involvement of Parents – Parents are involved in classroom activities, tasting the school lunch and general supervision in the school. 

    Communication – School website provides information to existing and prospective parents, students and teachers. Parents can access the messages, announcements, menu through the Mobile App of the school.

I chose table-tennis and played only that. My coach took me to tournaments and it was super fun. I remember one of the incidents. One day there was no car and my mother asked me to take an auto from Abids to Banjara Hills to get to the summer camp, which was 10-12 kms far. I couldn`t find a single auto. Instead of going back home, I started walking towards Banjara Hills and reached the venue. I later gave back the money of the auto fare to my mother.

Instead of going back home, I started walking towards Banjara Hills and reached the venue. I later gave back the money of the auto fare to my mother. It shows that where there is a will, there is a way. I can call myself the patent to the ‘pad yatra’ for First Summer Camp. Summer Camp doesn’t just include activities but will help along in life.” -Sandeep, Student, 1st Summer Camp

  • Student Exchange Programme at CHIREC (2017-2018). Students from Thayer Academy USA

    +

    CHIREC has been progressively instilling the concept of ‘internationalism’ among its students by showing acceptance of different cultures, open mindedness and tolerance to the students by introducing them to diverse cultures and people, through Student Exchange Programs.


    One such cultural exchange was the 10-days visit by a group of 10 students and 2 faculty members from Thayer Academy, Braintree, Massachusetts, USA. CHIREC planned a 4-day tour of the ‘Golden Triangle’ - Delhi-Agra-Jaipur, for the guests. The splendid Taj Mahal, palaces and forts of Jaipur and heritage sites in Delhi and Fatehpur Sikhri gave them an understanding of the rich history of art in India.


    The second part of the tour had the group visit Hyderabad and experience the cultural diversity of India when they travel from North of India to the Southern parts. In Hyderabad, Thayer Academy students were greeted by the Principals and Vice Principals of CHIREC’s International section and a formal welcome was given during the morning assembly. For the next 5 days, students of both schools bonded well over food, collaborative art projects (graffiti, rangoli and clay modeling) and during classes debating about issues of stereotypes. The students of both schools also visited T-HUB to witness the new wave of innovation and entrepreneurship and their visit to Indian School of Business for management education showcased the quality of education and research in India.


    The faculty members of the two schools too had their share of discussions and meetings to share ideas for teaching and learning and think of prospective projects between the schools.


    Thayer Academy Student’s Testimonials

    Sola Osinubi, Grade 10th


    “I learnt that no matter where you go across the world, people are exact same, people still smile and laugh and you can learn to be happy. We did a lot of sightseeing and visited the Taj Mahal, did elephant rides and went to bunch of forts, which were all very cool. My host was amazing and I also made a lot of friends. It was nice to experience a different culture. At school, I attended a psychology class and found it different as there is a lot of discussion and the teacher steps back and let the students handle it and I thought that was really helpful, which we don’t do at school and the teacher usually facilitates.” Lucy Relaford, Grade 12th “I had a lot of fun during the programme and I thought it was a great thing. I was super excited to go to India and also very nervous but it was really nice to do all the sight-seeing and come here and actually meet people and see what school is like in India and see what they do for fun. It was nice to meet other teenagers from around the world. At CHIREC, it was nice to get to know other people and see what they are interested in and what type of classes does CHIREC have. It was also interesting to get to know about the education system as we have elementary school, middle school and high school. Also, here there is more emphasis on examinations. The only class we attended was the theory of knowledge and we talked about stereotypes. It was really insightful and we liked it. I am excited to go back and tell my friends everything about the people I met here and how beautiful India is and get them really excited for the exchange students to come to us.”


    Jamie Grillo, Grade 9th


    “It is a good way to get to know India and its culture and see what kids your age would be doing in a foreign land that you otherwise would not experience like on a family trip or a trip through a travel agency. Thayer has a lot less students than CHIREC and there are so many people here that you can get to know so many types of people and so many different areas. There is difference in the education system such as course structuring and grading. I attended the pottery, fashion designing and the theory of knowledge classes. The latter was my favourite as it gives a talk about the world around us and goes into other types of thinking. It really opens our mind up. Thayer doesn’t really have that. They just have set classes on set subjects and doesn’t really allow you to explore different areas that would otherwise be not available.”


    Ella Green, Grade 10th


    “The exchange programme gave me an opportunity to see a new culture and meet new people and see how diverse the world is yet similar at the same time. I think the coolest part about exchange programme was staying in someone else’s home and getting to experience how they live instead of just staying in a hotel and sight-seeing like a tourist. We feel much closer with our hosts and I made friends with her friends and my friend’s hosts. We attended the English, Spanish and cooking classes. My favourite class was the cooking class because I am not much of a cook and I learnt how to cook Indian food and chai. The main difference that I noticed is that, in CHIREC math is math while in Thayer we have different math classes like algebra, geometry etc. My favourite place was Taj Mahal, which is just gorgeous.”


    Karina Kilburn, Grade 10th


    “I got to experience what it is like to go to a different school and meet new people and learn about the culture, which is so diverse and different. Thayer is lot smaller compared to CHIREC. At Thayer we take basic classes like Maths, Science and English but here you have economics, psychology and cooking class, which we don’t have. We attended a cooking class and a clay modelling class and I thought that was really cool because we don’t have classes like that at Thayer and I thought if we did, a lot of people would take them. Cooking class was my favourite as I love to cook and I am always cooking American food and cooking Indian food is a lot different. I think I have learnt that even though we are so far away from other people, they live half way across the world, experiencing different cultures and living in different ways, still we are all so similar at the same time.”


    Madhav Kolhi, IB 12, CHIREC


    “All families loved to have Thayer students in their house. School Management made sure that they could spend quality time with us and they could come to see how our school runs and I think they loved it a lot because they say this is the best trip they have been to. I learnt that Thayer Academy students are 2 years younger to me and they are very organised, mature and punctual.”


    Srilekhya Rao, IB 12, CHIREC


    “At first, we were hesitant, nervous and shy as they were coming to India for the first time, how will they feel talking to us and will they be comfortable but within the first 10 mins, all barriers were broken down and there were no differences. It was like having another sister/ brother in the house. That really increased our view point as we know that it is easy to make friends and mingle with people from other cultures as long as you are open minded and willing to make the effort. In 12th grade now we are talking about colleges as we are applying this year but Thayer 10th grade students know just as much as we do. Most of us here just follow set career paths such as engineering or business but they want to pursue a career in music, fashion, psychiatry and that’s one thing that we are encouraged to know that if they can pursue it, then we can too. I think one thing all the families that are hosting these kids have learnt was to cook Indian food without it being spicy.”

  • Student Exchange Programme at CHIREC

    +

    CHIREC hosted 15 students & 4 teachers of Labourdonnais College, Mauritius, as a part of the 6-day Student Exchange Programme from 26th Nov ’17 to 1st Dec ‘17. Each student was assigned a host family, who took good care of them and served regional cuisine. In school, the guests were given a warm welcome in the traditional Indian style during the special cultural assembly, followed by the school tour and interaction with the CHIREC students, faculty members, principals of both the sections and the Director. M

    During their time at CHIREC, Labourdonnais College students attended English Language, Business Studies and Psychology classes with the International section students of CHIREC. They visited the sports facilities and played table tennis and volleyball. They attended Art class, Music class, the Clay Modelling class where they used the potter’s wheel and made decorative pots and flowers and the Home Science Lab where they learnt how to prepare two South Indian delicacies.

    During their spare time, the school took the guests to various tourist spots in Hyderabad, such as the Ramoji Film City, Golconda Fort, Salarjung Museum, Charminar and Qutub Shahi Tombs. The guests purchased the Bidri craft articles, lacquer and pearl jewellery from the old city, and thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Shilparamam where they purchased Indian handicrafts, souvenirs and ethnic dresses. They also relished the Hyderabadi Biryani and Mughlai food at the city restaurants.

    On the last day, the students of Labourdonnais College, Mauritius, were given a grand farewell. They were invited to take part in the carnival wherein the CHIREC students presented about the colourful festival of Mardi Gras. Later, the Mauritian students showcased their talents by singing and dancing to their traditional and popular songs, while collaborating with CHIREC students during the presentations. A Mauritian student delivered a speech about Mauritius and its beautiful islands, and extended an invitation to CHIRECians to visit them. The guest faculty members thanked CHIREC for the hospitality and the cultural showcase. The guests were gifted goodie bags containing a CHIREC t-shirt, jacket, mug and magazine; they also received traditional block-print gowns, Kashmiri scarves, khadi kurtis, etc.

    It was a great experience for the host and the guest school, and we anxiously look forward to another wonderful collaboration in near future.

    Mr. Shafeeq Soobadar, Director and son of the founder of the Labourdonnais College, Mr. Houmayoun Soobadar: “The world is becoming a global village and people of different backgrounds and origins should all stick together as then we can achieve a lot. Friendship is important and distance should not be a problem. CHIREC & Labourdonnais College share the Cambridge curriculum and can share knowledge and the way of teaching. Both the schools insist on holistic development for our children. While, Mauritius has 1.3 million people and has one culture and habit, meeting different cultures is rare and is a unique experience. In Mauritius, the school environment is completely different. Here, first thing I notice is the positive environment. The students are disciplined and well behaved. The cultural exchange programme has given a clarity and the experience of the Indian culture to all the students and staff. This is the second time I am visiting Hyderabad and it is the loveliest city in India. When I came for the first time, I was amazed by the city. I wanted my students to come and see how Hyderabad is growing fast and evolving.”

    Sajjaad Sunnooman, Economics Teacher :“This is our first exchange programme. Our staff were reluctant at first to travel this long distance and we took 2 months to plan this. I would like to thank the management team, teachers, and students who accommodated us. The hospitality was beyond my expectation and imagination. It was unbelievable and we were not expecting it. The host families did not allow us to pay. The students have been asking me how will they exchange this money in Mauritius, there is nothing to buy in rupees. We were not expecting that there will no expenses. Students would like to come back with their families. About the teaching at CHIREC, the methodology is quite different. Teachers allow the students to develop their skills in what they are good at.”

    Oliver Owen Gaetan Joseph, Head Boy 2017-18 “It was a great experience. The people of Hyderabad are very friendly and they mingled with us very well. They have a sense of oneness and togetherness and treated us like king. We went to many attractions such as Charminar, Museum, etc, where we discovered the Hyderabadi culture, style and art. We attended a class on sociology and they were talking about how emotion can act on someone and how you can influence someone’s perception. We even attended Business Studies class, where we studied type of advertising that is informative and persuasive. This helped me as we study same subjects in our college. The takeaway for me from the experience is the sense of cooperation and oneness, I experienced here. I am going to try to instil it in my friends and family and show them how we were treated and treat others likewise.”

    Melanie Shannen Typhis, Head Girl 2017-18 : “It was my 1st time travelling in a plane. There are some stereotypes about India that it is polluted, and dirty. When we were transiting through Chennai, it was very polluted and people were driving like crazy. In Mauritius, it is not normal. When we came to Hyderabad, my expectations changed. It is not so polluted and people are friendly. I enjoyed staying with my host family. I was not homesick. We had breakfast and dinner together. I was lucky to have found my family in them. CHIREC is a big school and people here talk to u even if they don’t know you. We attended Business Studies and English classes. I prefer English. It was interesting the way teacher teach their students with video projection. Our generation understands something when we see with our eyes because everything is digital. It was very interesting. Ramoji Film City was my favourite place. I knew some of the places there as I watch Indian movies. We went for rides, had lunch and took pictures & videos.”

    Marie Alycia Michelle “I attended the science class and learnt about cells and what do cells constitute of. The school took us to the museum, which was a really nice place. We also visited Ramoji, where we enjoyed all the rides. I really liked the way people treated us here. I really liked my host and their hospitality. I made a lot of friends. Basically, I thought t it was going to be like I don’t know her, I won’t talk to her but it was otherwise. They talked to me and played with me especially my host family. I would like to tell my friends back home about the hospitality that we received here and I would like to say that when people give you too much, don’t abuse.”

    Marie Christabella Annais Charlot :“Indian is different from our country and we experienced a new culture. The people are very friendly and I don’t want to leave them. It was amazing. I really like the Shilparaman market, which had traditional dresses and sandals at good prices. CHIREC students here are so friendly. We have the same subjects and books. We attended the Clay Modelling class, which was a new experience as we don’t have this in our school.”

    Bibi Haajarah Dhoomun : “I really loved coming to India and I did not think it would be such a great opportunity. We spent an incredible time here. Everyone was nice and caring. The host families treated us like families and I feel really touched. I don’t want to leave India, I want to stay here. Classes are very different from Mauritius as we don’t have video projection to discuss topics.”

    Charles Yohan Alexandro Chan Lok :“Everything was well organised especially Ramoji Film City, which was a wonderful experience. I really liked the host family with whom I stayed. We attended the commerce and the sociology classes, which were very instructive as we have same syllabus.”

    Haadiyah Bibi Dhoomun: “It has been a very nice experience. We were welcomed with garlands. We attended the Psychology and Business Studies classes, where they showed us an informative video. It was very different. People at CHIREC are very friendly. We were taken to the Inorbit mall, where we had Italian lunch. We also went to Shilparamam and Ramoji Film City. On our last day at CHIREC, we performed on Exo Growl, during the morning assembly.”

    Bilal Oozeer: “It was an awesome experience. I don’t have a word to describe it. It was amazing. We enjoyed and had lots of fun. We played with the CHIREC band and they were very friendly. We practiced once and performed during the assembly on our last day. We even attended Business Studies classes, which I thought is similar to our school. Ramoji Film City was the best.

    Humairah Bibi Faatimah Dhoomun:  “It was a very nice experience and we got to share our cultures. Ramoji Film City was very nice and we saw a film shooting. At CHIREC, we attended the biology class, where we were taught with a projector. The teachers explain in detail.”

    Shiekh Muhammad Ibrahim Bin Muhadjir Jaunbocus:  “My experience of this programme was very good. The school is very nice and we attended the Biology & Home Science classes. I didn’t make many friends but learnt about the culture. Ramoji Film City was my favourite place. It is so colourful and big.”

    Irfan Oozeer:  “Hyderabad is a very beautiful city. It is the most beautiful in India. The people here are well educated and have good manners. I am really happy to come here and I will come again. I also liked the host family. They were like my own family.”

    Samuel Jean Christopher Lamto “It was an amazing experience. The whole school is very nice and big. All students are very friendly. It is like our school. Hyderabad is very beautiful and clean. I would like to come later again. My favourite was the Ramoji Film City, from where I got tattoos.”

The parents were a picture of enthusiasm as they sportingly participated in games and activities, alongside the students. While games like ‘Build a Tower’ , ‘Roll the Ball’ and ‘ Fun with Hula-Hoops’ put their balancing skills to test, they were given an opportunity to display their histrionics by enacting the evergreen film dialogues in ‘Sabse Bada Kalaakar’. The fitness freaks had an energetic ‘Zumba’ session, while the others tried their luck at games like ‘I am a Gladiator’, ‘ Hit the Coins’ and ‘We are Family,’ organized on the grounds. The event proved to be a much needed break for the parents, who enjoyed some quality time with their families on campus.

It also gave youngsters from both countries opportunities to learn about each other’s country, their culture and practices and learn from each other.

  • Workshop on The Art and Science of Teaching in the Early Years.

    On the 18th of April, CHIREC Kondapur hosted a workshop on The Art and Science of Teaching in the Early Years, organised by the Early Childhood Association. This workshop, which was sponsored and organized in part by Lxl, Furtodos and the Integrated Pre-school Teachers Training Academy, was attended by over 100 teachers from 30 schools across the city. Present at the workshop were speakers Ms. Pratima Sinha and Ms. Shaheen Moidu.

    Ms. Pratima Sinha, a passionate and well-known educator in Hyderabad, explored the science of the brain and its physiology. She explained that understanding and appreciating the plasticity and fluid nature of the brain in the early childhood years is the gateway to reaching a child effectively. She also emphasized that unless a teacher is well-versed with a subject and its technical details, classroom management and execution of curricula are not effective enough to reach young learners.

    Next, Ms. Shaheen Moidu kept the teachers in the audience spellbound with her ideas. “Passion, excitement, fun, spontaneity, and vigilance are the key traits of a great teacher,” said Ms. Moidu.

    The workshop was an enriching session which included segments of drama, music and hands-on activities integral to the “Art and Science of Teaching in the Early Years.”
