003 news letter september

  1. 1. 1 The core value for the month is ‘Sincerity’. When I think of ‘Sincerity’ the picture of my own teachers, who have been idols of perseverance and sincerity come to my mind In a span of two decades, Viswajyothi has developed to higher levels. Constant learning, hard slog, genuineness and endurance of our faculty is and will always play a pivotal role in fostering the learners of our institution. Each dawn brings in fresh rays of innovative ideas. The creative minds put together these ideas with well set goals and sincerity to bring laurels. Terminology may fall short when it comes to applauding teachers’ contributions. In the growth of our institution, the names of our heart and soul, have to be inscribed as ‘Abou Ben Adhem’s’ name on the God’s list. Their sweat and blood is felt on every building block of our school. Their sincerity towards their profession is laudable. No stone was, is or will leave unturned. No floras do they expect but it is their conscious evaluation of their very existence on earth, which prescribes the norms before them. The teachers are never catered or summoned to execute. Voluntary service, keeping aside their personal woes and throes has always been our trump card. Who more can be the best example of sincerity? My very existence has relentlessly been empowered by my teachers. Let them be the models of sincerity to every ‘Viswajyothian’ Thought From the Principal’s desk I have always understood that life is about choices. Every time we are at the crossroad, we have to make choice and that alleyway takes us to another crossroad, thus deciding our expedition and therefore the intention. I see making a choice as the supremacy to counter to a given condition . No matter how difficult that choice is, it does exist for each one of us, even if the choice is between a rock and a hard place, it is still a choice. If we look upon everything we do, as a choice we made by our tact, then there will be no room for excuses and blame games. So be sure from now on, your life moves forward by the choices made by you because after all it is your life. Roopa Ann Mathew, School Editor. Be sincere in your words and deeds Sincerity is an essential element of life. It is generally understood to be true in words and actions. Your action and words are a reflection of your inner feelings. It is not enough to say the right thing or do what is expected. A sincere person begins inside with the feeling and allows these feelings to be mirrored in his interactions with the outside world. Sincerity should always be an offshoot of love, care, protection and security. A sincere person is always welcome because of his truthful mind, friendly attitude and real personality. We should make it as a rational reasonable human. Virtue according to the occasion that demands our sincerity. We must practice this virtue for without sincerity, hypocrisy and deception would be rampant. As children you need to ask yourselves are we sincere towards our duties, be it studies or towards teachers, parents, friends, society or a nation as a whole. Why are we sliding away from our duties? Sincerity may be cumbersome at first but in the long run it has always proved to be advantageous. Ms. Mary Koshy (Academic Co-ordinator) THE PRIVILEGE OF CHOICE Fr. Varghese Kachappilly CMI Principal
  2. 2. 2 Smiling at everyone. Does it matter that you make someone’s day! Compliment people if you think they are good/ Just be Nice (JBN) ! Be the best in the World (BIW) ! Strive to be! Don’t’ be bogged down by negative comments! See a positive side to everything! Improvise and improve everything that comes your way. Try to be positively different in everything you do. Slink away from loose talks that do not give you any kind of knowledge. Listen, listen and listen and Read, read, read to learn from other peoples experience and correct one’s own mistakes. CHANGE YOURSELF, CHANGE THE WORLD! Ms. Mini Thomas, [S.E.P Faculty] When something goes wrong, you are tempted to criticize the person responsible for it. The pull to tag the person “careless” is very easy, but criticism needs to be used as correctional tool in a positive manner Avoid criticizing in public because of. in would mean loss of countenance and perhaps cancelling the value of correction. Criticize only in private. Preface criticism with kind words. You must acknowledge the person’s previous efforts to do work well. Your comments should be directed at the act, not at the person. Do not expect the change instantly . Avoid overemphasizing mistake again and again. If necessary, tell how to do right. Ask for co-operation and never demand it. Instead, “Let us work together” is most effective It is always better to state clearly what needs improvement. It is best to begin with a morale booster, end up in a positive fashion showing faith in a person’s willingness and ability to comply. This sets the stage for the acceptance of your suggestion for improvement. Ms. Jayasree K., Soc. Dept [Hod] (a) Question: My son is studying in class XII in commerce stream. He wants to offer Economics as an additional sixth subject. The school authorities are not agreeing. What to do? Answer by CBSE: A candidate must have studied a subject for two years. So, according to rules, he is not eligible to offer a new subject at this stage. (b) It is being claimed that removing Class-X Board examination will reduce tension. Will it not be better to prepare the students to face tension and become stronger citizens? Answer by CBSE: It is certainly not advisable to put the students to excessive tension due to examination, particularly during impressionable age and stage. There are other better methods to motivate them for academic excellence. One of these is to create challenging tasks and situations for brighter students. Better learning takes place in a supportive and friendly environment. (c) Question: Sir, Parents prefer to admit their wards to CBSE affiliated schools instead to Kerala State Board schools mainly due to strong Curriculum framework and examination pattern of CBSE. Introduction of grading system by Kerala Board was not appreciated by the people. The new grading system introduced by CBSE may also meet the same fate. Answer by CBSE: Please go through the circulars carefully. These are available on CBSE website . There will neither be reduction in syllabus nor dilution in standard of examinations. The question papers designed by the Board will be used by the schools, the curriculum is being re- organized but not diluted. Grading system is certainly sounder. (d) Question: Dear Sir, India is known for its tough but quality education. The recently introduced changes are likely to drastically lower the standard of education in India. Is it not a retrogradive step? Answer by CBSE: The curriculum at Secondary stage has been re-organised but certainly not diluted. The pattern and standard of question papers will be decided by the Board. How will then the standard of education be lowered? Please remember that the role and functions of a school are distinctly different from a coaching centre. It is a step taken after lot of country-wide consultations and the new scheme focuses on holistic development of the learner. (e) Question: The students getting 81 marks or 90 marks will be awarded the same grade A2 How is it justified? Answer by CBSE: Using grading system for assessment of students is educationally sounder than awarding numerical scores. Grading system takes care of imperfections in the tools and techniques used in the assessment presently.
  3. 3. 3 On the first day God created the cow. God said, “You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer I will give you a life span of sixty years.” The cow said, “That’s a kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty years and I’ll give back the other forty.” And God agreed. On the second day, God created the dog. God said, “Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years.” Doris Lessing is the Nobel Prize winner for literature in 2007. She is now 88. She is the eleventh woman to receive literature nobel. Her legacy in the field of literature is inspiring a generation of feminists with her breakthrough novel THE GOLDEN NOTEBOOK. She has written 13 novels, dozens of short stories and science fiction. She never finished high school. But educated herself through voracious reading. That is the magic of reading. That is the impact of reading. By reading, anybody can become superior to their colleagues and their contemporaries. Silent agent of Education In the process of education school library is acting as a silent agent of education. Why We Live as Long as We Do... The dog said, “That’s too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I’ll give back the other ten.” So God agreed (sigh). On the third day God created the monkey. God said, “Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I’ll give you a twenty year life span.” The monkey said, “How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don’t think so. Dog gave you back then, so that’s what I’ll do too, okay?” And God agreed again. On the fourth day God created man. God said, “Eat, sleep, play. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy. I’ll give you twenty years.” Man s a i d , “What? Only twenty years? No way! Tell you what, I’ll take my twenty, and the forty cow gave back, and the ten dog gave back and the ten monkey gave back. That makes eighty, okay?” “Okay,” said God. “You’ve got a deal.” So this is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, enjoy, and do nothing; for the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain our grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit in front of the house and bark at everybody. Interaction with superior minds World famous classics give a chance to interact with superior minds. These books are our sole means of communication with great minds through the ages, with the artists like Davinci , astronomists like Galileo and Kepler, dramatists like Shakespeare and Bernard Shaw, doctors like William Harvey, Economists like Malthus, educators like Maria Montessori and Thomas Huxley, historians like Herodotus and Gibbon, inventors like Rontegen and Alva Edison etc. Interaction with these superior minds and their invaluable means of communication are in the reach of all. In these classics great men talk to us their precious thoughts and pour their souls into ours. So make use of such books and develop your minds and create new things for the development of others. Books give creativity Books open the door to the world of creative thought and imagination. They are life long friends and the best of good company. Books give comfort In the stress of life we seek for relief in books. They are companions to the deserted. They give joy to the joyless. It is a helper to the helpless. Pope Pius X says that “Books are faithful friends: they warn us of our duties: they awake in our souls the heavenly voices that have been silences; they disturb the treacherous calm in which we live; they reveal the dangers that lie in the path of the unwary;- and all these they do with such unobtrusive kindness as becomes our very friends. K.C. RAPHAEL, Librarian However it does not involve directly in the process of education but it is acting as a silent agent by giving knowledge through its books and periodicals to the teachers and the students . The words of Stefan Zweig on books should be reverberated in our minds when we approach the library. “Books are there, waiting and silent. They neither urge, nor call, nor press their claims. Mutely they are ranged along the wall. They seem to be asleep and yet from each one a name looks at you like an open eye. If you direct your glances their way or move your hands over them, they do not call out to you in supplication, nor do they obtrude themselves upon you. They make no demands. They wait until you are receptive to them; only then do they open up”.
  4. 4. 4 With the message of peace and harmony the Onam season once again came alive. The staff, the students and the management of Viswajyothi CMI Public school celebrated Onam before the school closed for the ten days of vacation. The Kindergarten section had the celebration on 1st Sep. It was marvellous to see the young butterflies in traditional Kerala dress, singing and dancing who came to greet their brothers and sisters The High School section had their Onam celebration on 2nd Sep.. In the afternoon there was an inter-house Pookkalam competition this was followed by onakkali and payasam distribution. Life becomes a festival when gaiety and culture blend. Onam delivers the message of both.”This year Onam proved to be a unique experience. Nearly 130 senior citizens from the school neighbourhood were cordially welcomed to celebrate this auspicious day in Viswajyothi .Class XII students were given the chance to honour them. The function was graced by the presence of our Manager Rev. Fr. Jose Padayatty CMI, our Principal Rev. Fr. Varghese Kachappilly CMI , our Vice Principal Rev.Fr. Sebes Attokaran CMI, Rev. Fr. Eliazer Vadakumchery CMI, our PTA President Mr. Joseph Kanichai and famous Malayalam poet Sri. N.K. Desom, Sri. E.V. Kamalakshan and Smt. Celena Devassy Muncipal councillors and Rev. Fr. Hormees Mynaty, Vicar of Vengoor Church felicitated the occasion. The role of teachers and parents of worth appreciating. The senior citizens shared their experiences and they took enough pain to bring gifts in the form of their paintings which could never fade with the passage of time. The official inauguration was followed by various cultural programmes presented by different classes. But for the students of class XII the precious moments were when they presented “Onakkodi” to the senior citizens . The students felt blessed from the bottom of their hearts.”Old age has its own wisdom”. So when the On 3rd September a few students, representing Viswajyothi took part in ‘Jesus Youth Teens Ministry’ held at Rajagiri School. It was a three day programme named ‘Step One’ exclusively for 9th graders. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. Each day they had a number of sessions conducted by different people. There were special sessions for music and dance which was enjoyed thoroughly. STEP ONE senior citizens blessed the students, they felt as if their grandparents blessed them. It was really the most unforgettable time. We bear in mind that such a phase of life awaits everyone, which could be cherished forever. We also relished the onasadhya together. Friday 16th September was the day for the budding athletes to prove themselves fit to be in the Mini district team. The Mini athletics meet was conducted in Maha- raja’s college ground with Viswajyothi presenting its proud 46 champions from the age group 8 to 14 years. And in the great run of events we bagged the 2nd Runners up trophy. The sweetness of the day increased with the selection of 10 champions from our team for the Ernakulum District Mini Athletics team. MINI ATHLETIC MEET
  5. 5. 5 D. C. L. Kalady Zone celebrated Onam Festival in a grand way. Music Competitions were conducted. The meeting that took place in Viswajyothi CMI Public School, was inaugurated by the Principal Rev. Fr. Varghese Kachappilly CMI., Mr. P. J. Thomas, the Organizer, Ms. Solly Devasykutty , the President, Mr. P. D. Antony, the Regional Co- ordinator and Sr. Merina, Mr. G. V. Varghese delivered a speech on the occasion .Viswajyothi CMI Public School achieved the first place with L.P. Section scoring 28 points, U. P. section 21 points and H.S. section 22 points. It was my dream as a little girl to grow up to become just like my teacher one day. This childhood dream became a reality on 14th September when the XIIth STD students stepped into our teacher’s shoes. All of us started out from our home, dressed up in an attempt to initate our teachers. The “Good morning mam” from our juniors was enough to make our day. We had no idea about how difficult teaching is until we had to do the same. This one day as teachers, gave us enough experience to realize the pain our teachers take every day to mould us into better citizens. Maintaining discipline in the classes was a task in itself. Our toil was well- rewarded when the students responded to our questions. Our juniors gave us an experience, we will never forget. We tried to make teacher’s day special for our teaches too. This is a very difficult task because its nearly impossible to make such special people feel special. The games we hosted for our teachers were equally enjoyable for students and teachers. It was followed by a formal function to honour them in the auditorium. We presented our gurus with gifts which is only a small token of our love, gratitude and respect. We showcased our various talents dedicating them to our teachers. Teachers day is best described as a bitter- sweet experience because the little pains and struggle we had to go through was worth bearing for our teachers’ smiles. Rita Binny Padayatty, XII

We crossed the fields, all in ease, And scared the cat with a chase, But when we spread the flowers for a lace, All we thought of is to gaze. My new dress, I would like to kiss, The jasmine flower, I would never miss, With the howling sound, as they move around, I would always wish, those days were all around. With the spirit so high, And the tenderness that abide, Those days we made , Into one of the kind. A seat I fixed, in the midst, To fly amidst the wind that drifts, With flowers and leaves I made it bright, I never had such a lovely flight. Behind the trees we found a place, Like a hound moving out of sight, And with the rope fell on the ground, To feel victory all around. Lucky were we in those olden days, Licking our fingers for the sugary spice, For one last drop on the greeny leaf, Is a memory for the forth coming days. Ms. Abishya
