Dr. Seema Wadhwa, Associate Director Gynaecology at Max Hospital conducted a talk and held an interactive session for the girls of classes 6 and 7 on Thursday, 19th December, 2019. Girls at this age are naturally curious about their bodies and have many questions and concerns. It is important to be as open as possible so that they are prepared for the changes ahead.

She also addressed the onset of menstruation in girls at this age and how to maintain personal hygiene. Dr. Wadhwa, an expert in her field was able to address the queries of the young girls, and has shared her number with them, should they further wish to discuss any problems with her.

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”
Students of the SFHS were recently treated to a highly engaging and motivated session in teaching respect for all living beings.
This session was organised by Peedu’s People, an NGO group of dedicated people offering kindness and love to the animals in need, all over the world.
During the session, Mr. Inder Sandhu shared his thoughts on myths associated with stray dogs and involvement of students in vaccination and adopting these animals. The talk was followed by a brief session on behavioural pattern of dogs and the same was demonstrated through Pluto, a stray dog adopted by Peedu’s people who was a true example of what love and care can do to a helpless animal.
Another new year is upon us. As in everything new, there is a sense of wonder, hope and anticipation. And yet, the events of the last few months, not just in India but across the world make us a bit tentative and apprehensive about what lies ahead.
I would like to, on behalf of all of us at Strawberry Fields, wish you all a very Happy New Year. Let us take this opportunity to do our bit to bring greater cheer to the world around us. Let us be the very change we want to see. Make small efforts, do tiny acts and join hands as we expand the effect of good, wholesome and positive thoughts and actions.
Let 2020 be a year of solidarity and of making less more. The world needs that. Our environment needs that. Our communities need that.
Best wishes to you and your families.
The December chill lost its bite last night. Warmth and cheer, hugs and back slapping, oooo’s and wows were exchanged among the young attendees. The group comprising of 170+ from the batches of 2015 onwards, relived their years in their Alma Mater, becoming a class again!
Classrooms were revisited and their educators had short activities run for the eager to engage youngsters. Camaraderie and pure fun was evidenced here.
The caring and committed Alumni, in a gesture of belonging, contributed a significant sum to the School’s venture, Helping Hands. Through this venture, which is a voluntary one, students and staff contribute towards augmenting the School’s contribution towards providing equal opportunities for the less privileged among us.
Energetic dancing and a delectable dinner brought the curtains down on the enchanted evening.
Meeting up with class mates from high school gave a little piece of the past back to all who attended. And no matter how much things have changed and continue to do so, we always remember the people we shared those golden years with.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and more in 2020.
The budding musicians from Middle and High School enthralled the audience with their renditions of some popular songs during the music concert, Music Through the Ages. Parents braved the cold to encourage and motivate the youngsters. The audience was up on their feet, swaying, singing and dancing along turning the rather cold, dull morning into a cheerful and joyful one. It was a befitting way to ring in the new year. Kudos to the music team of the school for putting up such a great show!
The Inter House Basketball and Football matches were played over the week. Great House spirit was evidenced as the young girl players from Aether House, dribbled, tackled and passed the ball to secure a win after defeating opponents, Agni House who managed 3 baskets versus the 36 scored by the winning team.
The boys’ Basketball had Aether House playing against Agni House. The winners here too were Aether House as they netted 32 baskets versus the 25 by Agni House.
The victory for Football was claimed by Terra House in an exciting and well played and cheered match as the team of eleven, scored 4 goals against the 2 made by Agni House
On 20th December, Strawberry Fields High School had its Closing Day Ceremony for the batch of 2020.
It was a bittersweet day for the graduating batch, who although eager to start their new lives outside of school were feeling emotional and nostalgic.
The day started off with an invigorating Treasure Hunt organised for the Grade 12 by their juniors.
This was followed by the speeches of the students which left the audience teary eyed. The graduating batch was addressed by the High School Coordinator, Ms Shabnam Singha and the Principal, Ms. Sangeeta Sekhon one last time.
The traditional candle lighting ceremony then witnessed the students of class 12 sharing with their juniors values which they felt were necessary to have as students. The values given were resilience, ingenuity, acceptance, respect, and last but not least tenacity.
We, at SFHS wish the Batch of 2020 all the very best for the future!
