May 15, 2019 Student Council 2019-20 – Investiture Ceremony
The 7th Student Council took its oath of office today, and pledged to fulfill its duties towards the school, with utmost sincerity and enthusiasm. Led by the School Captain, Arsheya Kang, the newly elected Council, solemnly promised to lead by example and play their part in promoting a sense of compassion, service and justice towards fellow students, teachers and family.
Speaking on the occasion, Atul Khanna, Director of the School, congratulated the Council and appreciated the impressive demonstration of the high school students’ understanding of democratic principles, in the election of the Student Council.
Expressing deep appreciation for the school’s stellar performance in the recently declared ISC and ICSE board examinations, Mr. Khanna, placed on record, the importance of not restricting the definition of success to just examination scores. He asked students and faculty to pursue excellence and meritoriousness on the basis of other talents, abilities and individual qualities, since not all students in a class could possibly be ace scorer’s. Moreso since perfect marks did not guarantee a perfect career or a perfect life. He felt that while scoring excellent grades must be a priority, equal emphasis must be given to developing life skills and values too.
Drawing parallels between the rigorous processes followed in the election of the school council and the ongoing general elections in the country, he urged students to feel blessed living in an independent country with rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution. He asked students to discuss with friends and family the value of the hard-earned freedom, so as to put to good use, the legacy of freedom fighters, including his grandfather, Shri Durga Das Khanna, and the urgent need to safeguard its continuity for future generations.
It was also a day for appreciating the members of staff who work quietly and tirelessly, behind the scenes, to ensure that Strawberry Fields High School functions smoothly and efficiently, day after day. The Director did a very unusual thing by requesting each of the support staff members like the managers, office assistants and others to step forward and receive acclaim from the audience. These unsung heroes of the school need to be seen, recognised and appreciated, for it is thanks to their efforts that everything works so well in the school. The gesture was very well appreciated and was a fitting conclusion to a very special day.

May 8, 2019 From the Director’s desk…

We can feel the sense of trepidation each child and his/her parent feels when results are due. For us, every child remains a winner having gone through the stress and pressure of our examination system. Results are also inevitably a time for us to be humbled as we see students outdo themselves. I for one, could never have got the kind of scores these students unfailingly get. Congratulations to the toppers and front runners and all those who worked hard and survived the pressure. Our good wishes to them as they step into the world that awaits them.

May 6, 2019 SFHS elects its School Captain
The Newton Hall at SFHS, witnessed today, the most awaited and thrilling event of the year — the final speeches of the contenders for the keenly contested School Captainship for 2019-20. Asav Kumar and Arsheya Kang, students of IBDP Year 2 and the ISC Class 12, and well matched candidates, transfixed their fellow students from Grades 9-12 with their words and manifestos for candidacy.
While, Arsheya, who prefers to be known for her work more than anything else, is a well-grounded individual who has demonstrated tenacity and consistent dedication to her goals, Asav has tasted success both academically and in the sports field, being an ace sportsman and a student of great caliber.
In the truest form of democratic elections, their inspiring oration was followed by a secret ballot voting by all students of the High School, for their candidate of choice. And finally, Strawberry Fields made its choice, in favour of Arsheya Kang as School Captain!
We wish Arsheya a successful tenure and hope she is able to take her dreams and that of the school forward. We also look forward to Asav’s support within the school fraternity and commend him for the tough competition that he provided in the final round of challenge.
