Swimming Gala Girls

“Splish Splash”
“The water is your friend,” said a wise man,”you don’t have to fight with water, just share the same spirit as the water, and it will help you move.” Treating water as our friend makes us learn to conserve water. We also learn the grace of keeping ourselves afloat and play water sports or learn swimming. The girls of Sacred Heart took a plunge into the pool as the school held the Swimming Gala on 14th September 22. At the stroke of eleven the budding swimmers of the Girls’ Wing were prepared to display their different strokes. They just waited for their Director Sir to declare the event open. Excitement knew no bounds once the event commenced. Be it free style or medley, back stroke or butterfly stroke, our water friendly girls reminded us the fact that human beings are born swimmers. It was an Inter House event and hence we had to declare the names of the winners. Thus Sarojini Naidu House bagged the winning trophy while Mother Teresa House and Madam Cama House contested hard to win the First and the Second Runner Up trophy respectively. However, the spirit of sportsmanship displayed by our swimmers was what won every heart. You could not deny the fact that Sister Nivedita House put their best strokes forward leaving no stone unturned to have their house flag fly high. Some swimmers who are indeed promising are Palak Das, Kusum Kerketta and Riya Kumari of Grade 12, Tasnim Esha and Nabila Ahmed of Grade 9C, and little Radhe Kumari of Grade 5. The weather favoured us with a cloudy canopy that loomed over our heads ensuring that the sultry sun got no chance to scorch our swimmers. It was a pleasant event with Jessica Lwagun of Grade 12 as the MOC. Kasak Fitkariwala of Grade 12 proposed the vote of thanks to bring the event to an end. More than a competition, the Gala was a moment of joy where each splash of water reminded us how much we missed our lovely students in the two years when this event could not be held.

District Level Science Seminar

Sacred Heart School in the District Level Science Seminar
It was on 2nd September 22 that the Darjeeling district Science Seminar was held in the North Bengal Science Centre. The Heartians participated in it under the able guidance of our Science teachers, Mrs. Sarika Basu , Mr. Abhishek Gupta and Miss Poonam Mishra. Other eminent schools of Siliguri also took part. Surprisingly, however, only 17 out of the 25 schools registered actually turned up for the event. Each school had to select one representative and I had felt immensely fortunate when the teachers nominated me as the candidate who would be the face of the school at the seminar. My seniors, Kishan Gaur and Soham Sao both of Grade 12 , had mentored me during the preparation. An aptitude test was conducted in the beginning of the event. A presentation followed and finally there was an interview. We called it a day at 5:30 in the evening after a long and fruitful seminar . The topic of discussion was – “Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development” -A theme of great relevance to the present world scenario. We shall always remember the judges who created an indelible impression on our minds with their vast knowledge. The Seminar taught me the application of Sciences to our daily lives. A memorable day had been spent and I returned much wiser when I understood that the study of science can transport us to a realm beyond the text book.

Science Centre

A Visit to North Bengal Science Centre.
-Arya Anand
Science is the study of everything around us. Understanding and applying the laws that govern everything, is science. There are certain institutions which are set up to make science an enjoyable subject. Our school gave us an opportunity to visit such a place, which would enhance our scientific reasoning in a delightful way. We visited the ‘North Bengal Science Centre’ on 30th July 2022. We were a group of enthusiastic girls and boys with our teachers and were eagerly waiting to learn something new that day. We reached at around 2:00 PM and after a walk in the campus, we finally started with what everyone was keenly waiting for- it was a program where we tried out various experiments with our Project Coordinator. The main objective of doing this was to convince everyone that “Science is Fun.”
Our Project Coordinator sir welcomed us in quite an extraordinary way. He added science to this as well. He did it with what we call ‘Phenolphthalein.’ Now, that was something which engaged us more into the experiments that he performed. Well, we did it together. No doubt, we learnt all the concepts in class, but doing it there practically, was great. Sir had various innovative pedagogical ideas to explain various theories. Little did we know,just saying a single word ‘Vanish’ could make a solution colourless. Woah! That was something that caught everyone’s attention. Naturally, it had science behind it- it was the acidity and alkalinity test. As everybody would think, connecting wires with the negative and positive terminals would, ofcourse, pass current through the wire. We were told to hold the positive and negative terminals of the wire and shake hands. We thought it would pass electricity through us as well, because, after all, we, humans, are good conductors of heat and electricity, and so we first refused to shake hands, but listening to the advice of the scholarly person who guided us, we did it. Surprise, surprise! – We did not get an electric shock! We enjoyed learning together.
Next, after all this, something more innovative and interesting was waiting for us there. It was the Innovation Hub, where we saw various models made by different students. Our project coordinator told us that we too would make such models some day and yes, that day was not quite far. We, then, had a session on Electronics where we learned the basics. That was fun, too. Our session finally got over at 4:10 PM and we returned to our school as erudite people.
It was indeed a great learning experience and this visit instilled within us various scientific ideas and what was said by our project coordinator sir was – “we would become great scientists and scholars in the future.” This fueled up our brains and “Innovation for Mankind” became our motto.
Thank you.

The Discourse is an Annual Debate Competition which sees students put on their Socratic garb, their Aristotelian smug, the Rousseau intellect and the Platonic character.
This July, from 16th to 29th, our school began to reverberate with penchant for argument and hunger to prove a point. SStudents could be seen practicing lines, memorizing quotes to defang the opponent, and searching for punch lines that would floor the houseEvery participant, regardless of age and gender, size or matter transformed into an orator, a voice of reason.
They were eager to stand up, they seemed eager to carry the weight of their houses on their shoulders. This year too witnessed enthusiastic participants, worthy opponents, cutting wit and biting satire.
On a warm 28th July afternoon, the final witnessed by Mr Zabir and Mr Prabir, alongside the Director Anil Sir and Principal Mr Prafulla Mani Pradhan saw Miss Renisa Basu and Miss Mayuri Churiwal emerge as best speakers speaking for the motion, ‘PEER PRESSURE IS GOOD FOR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT’.

The motion that included hot topics like Tucks should be allowed in Hostel, to more academic topics like Children should spend more time outdoors, finally culminated with the motion, EXAMINATION IS A TRUE WAY TO JUDGE A STUDENT’S ABILITY.
The finals of the middle school discourse saw Neelakshi Hait, Sanskriti Singh, Ayushman Sharma and their ilk amaze the jury with their enthusiasm, wit and conviction. The major takeaway from the event has been the sensibility shown by the students to defend their stand, analyse the opinion of others and gracefully accede to a sound argument

Rabindra Jayanti

Come Rabindra Jayanti and the skies resound with poetry. Sacred Heart School remembers the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, and pays a humble tribute to him each year. This year was no different. We gathered in the Girls’ Hall on 9th May at 9 o clock when the event was inaugurated formally as the portrait of the poet was garlanded. A cultural programme ” Robichhando” was organized under the aegis of the Bengali department. Singing, dancing, recitation and drama marked the event and the Heartians readily gave their best. The juniors danced with spontaneous grace and the seniors took to the stage with utmost perfection. The solo performances of Arya Anand and Renisa Basu of Grade 10 were indeed commendable. Equally praiseworthy were the speakers Abdullah Ahad Joy, Syeda Jerin Jamal and Pragya Saha of Grade 10. An extract from a famous play of Tagore, ” Daakghar” was enacted by the boys – a performance which truly stole the show. This year’s speciality was a fusion between Rabindrasangeet and the plays of Shakespeare. A colorful event, it brought out the talents of the students. The Chief Guest, Mr. Plaban Sinha, an assistant Professor of Bangla in the North Bengal University spoke highly of the programme. The Guest of Honour Dr. Kalipada Barman, an eminent scholar of Bangla literature was present at the occasion. It was no doubt a proud moment for the school to watch the students perform on the stage with confidence.

Interhouse singing Report

Music brings solace to the soul, happiness to the mind and harmony to environment.
“Incipimus iterum”, the Inter House Singing Competition was a platform given to the budding singers of the school.
With great enthusiasm practice commenced and all our leisure hours were booked.
Finally the D Day arrived and the venue was set up at the Girls’ Hall on 23 rd April 22 at 1: 20 PM.
Tagore House and Mother Teresa House jointly hosted the event that was almost a brainchild of our music teacher Mr. Pankaj Biswakarma Sir.

The musical journey flagged off with an inauguration where the judges were felicitated with khadas and bouquets. Each house presented a solo number and a group song each and the musical sojourn went on smoothly. The participants were equally good and competition was tough. The Masters and Mistresses of ceremony showed not just an immense potential for public speaking but also excellent presence of mind. A guitar presentation by our Principal Sir came as a surprise as well as a mark of encouragement. The judges too were gracious enough to present us with a melodious number. The presence of Director Sir, Priyakee Ma’am and Principal Sir was indeed very encouraging. We look forward to more such events that aim at a holistic development of children.

 



Basket Ball Competition

Orchid Basketball Academy hosted a 3:3 open tournament on Saturday, 9th of April,2022.
The categories for the tournament were -Under-12(boys and girls), Under-16 (boys and girls) and Under-18(boys and girls). A total of 6 teams were in the Under-18 category, while the Under-16 had 6 teams.
The boys who represented our school were as follows-
Under-18 :
Subhrajyoti Mondal.
Somnath Paul.
Saksham Bhagat.
Priyanshu Raj.
Under-16:
Vedant Jaiswal.
Vaibhav Jaiswal.
Abhinv.
Gitesh.
Our team was accompanied by Mr Diwakar Ghosh, our coach.
Our first match was against Birla Divya Jyoti which we won comprehensively and made our way into the semi-finals that was against the formidable Jalpaiguri Club. As expected, it turned out to be a challenging match, but we managed to scrape our way past the opponents and booked our place in the finals. Unfortunately our Under-16 boys despite playing courageously failed to make it to the finals.
Owing to an exhausting schedule the organisers decided that the finals would be played the following day(10th April,2022).
The final was to be played against Kaba Juniors.
Our match started at frantic pace with neither of us willing to give an inch to the other. The points were scored in quick succession, some were missed, angry glances were exchanged, the referee’s whistle blew more often than not, but our pace didn’t slacken. We were like two gladiators in the Roman Coliseum fighting for our trophy, though the analogy might be inappropriate. Often, when we looked over at our coach on the sidelines, he looked bemused not only at our ability and agility but also at our inability to follow instructions, esp. when things went south.
But as fate would have it, despite our valiance, we lost ground, and the more desperate we got, the more mistakes we committed, consequently at the end of the match, the score card read in our opponents favour.
Fortunately not all was lost, because we had our captain of the under-18 team Subhrajyoti Mondal being awarded the most promising player of the tournament and we had something to show our friends on our return to school.
Though victory would have tasted sweet yet the satisfaction of having left behind nothing on the court makes us proud of what we have achieved.
