January - 2018

From The Principal...

Dear Parents,

Warm Greetings from SIS!

January had the quick, subtle movement of a river that flows quietly, but with a marked swiftness that is not easily perceptible. All we can see from here is the last bogey of the train disappearing round the bend! The entire month, of course, was suffused with the novelty of 2018. Till the last day of all Januaries, the New Year fragrance suffuses the air. We too, at Sapphire International, have gone about it with our characteristic vigour, participating in several Sports Competitions, not forgetting to bow at the feet of Saraswati, the Goddess of learning whose blessings were sought by all grades, with the most devout prostrations coming from the board classes! With “Bharat Mata ki Jai” ringing in our ears and delicious sweets in our hands we embarked on a rollicking picnic on Republic Day!

Sapphire International savoured the glory of being named the Best School in Jharkhand by the Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences, (Deemed University), Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. Vying for inclusion of their creative artistry in the school calendar, school artists from all grades sent in their best paintings, and so the month ended on a most colourful note.

We constantly seek suggestions from you, dear parents, with the clear and sincere purport of making our Newsletter eminently readable. Do come forward with ideas! We cannot let go of this final opportunity at the end of January, to wish you once again, a very Happy New Year!


With best wishes,

Sapphire International School
12th Milestone Ranchi-Khunti Road, Hardag
