Summer Camp for Classes IX and X

Summer camp was an enriching experience for the students of class IX and X.
It provided the right mix of fun and new challenges for the students. The
students enjoyed the magic of camp. Till recently, ‘Summer holidays’ simply meant finishing homework and a visit to
the grandparents’ homes. However, this summer proved to be an excellent
opportunity to brush up social and communicative skills allowing students to be
more open about their thoughts and feelings. They also taught us adults much
about laughter, hope, and energy.
Students of classes IX and X truly immersed themselves in the activities. They had
an amazing online summer Camp!! They learnt so much- Indoor-Games,
Pranayama, Exercises, Geographical facts, Fun with Mathematics, Sketching and
Painting, Performing Arts and Artificial Intelligence.Other important values that
were emphasised through our summer camp activities include developing a love
for learning, being resilient, reconnecting with nature and learning social skills.
We are grateful to all who contributed to this successful Summer Camp, especially
to our volunteers and staff for their commitment to creating opportunities for
young people.
Your attitude is in your hand. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and
you shall form an invincible host against difficulties. Isaiah 43:2 says -
“When you go through deep waters I will be with you.”
So,take a leap of faith and be structured enough for success and
achievement and flexible enough for creativity and fun.

When the summer ends, monsoon will arrive, acknowledge the changing
nature of the world. Adapt and be with the flow of uncertainties. Never
underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction.
Stretch the limits of the possible by venturing a little more into the impossible
because if you fail to push your limits you will suffocate in your own comfort

Mother's Day (Second Sunday of May)

It's a cliché, but it's true: the greatest Mother's Day gift you can offer your mother is your time.Sophians celebrated Mother's Day to honour their mothers. Ever since the pandemic started— and its resultant lockdowns — the period has been difficult, and it continues to be so, especially, for mothers. Tasked with taking care of the house and juggling many responsibilities, mothers are often left exhausted.

This Mother’s Day, the celebrations were bound at home, as the city grapples with
the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and is under a curfew. No matter the age, we all share deep bonds with our mothers and Mother’s Day is all about making them feel special. The students of class XI expressed their love for their mothers through handmade Mother’s Day cards with sweet messages, baking cakes and puddings- to
say why moms need to be celebrated.
