Dear Students, Parents, and Staff,

It's hard to believe that we've already been in school for more than a month! Time truly flies when you're busy and having fun, doesn't it? I wanted to take a moment to reflect on our progress so far and offer some thoughts on where we're headed.

First and foremost, I'm proud of our students for the hard work they've put in these past few weeks. We've seen great effort in and out of the classroom, and it's been amazing to see the enthusiasm and dedication our students have brought to their studies. Whether it's Math, Science, English, or any other subject, our students have demonstrated a commitment to learning and a desire to grow and improve.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the incredible efforts of our teachers and staff. They've worked tirelessly to create engaging and effective lessons, and they've done an amazing job of supporting our students both academically and emotionally. It's clear that they're passionate about their work, and it's been a privilege to watch them in action.

Looking ahead, I'm excited about what the rest of the year has in store for us. We have many exciting initiatives and programs planned, including our upcoming Summer Internships, Inter-School Bodhi Fest, Inter-Class activities, and Inter-House academic, sports and co-curricular competitions,. I'm confident that our students will continue to shine, and that we'll see even more growth and progress in the coming months.

Summer vacation is a time for relaxation and rejuvenation, but it is also an opportunity to continue learning and growing. I encourage you to take advantage of this time to explore your interests, try new things, and continue to develop your skills and knowledge. Whether it is through reading, taking an online course, or volunteering in your community, there are endless opportunities for personal growth and development.

Lastly, I wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer vacation. Take this time to rest, spend time with loved ones, and recharge your batteries for the upcoming session. I look forward to seeing you all again soon, and I am excited for all that we will accomplish together.

Best wishes,


Mrs Nitu Bothra

Collaboration: The Key to Success in Today's World

In today's world, collaboration has become an essential ingredient in achieving success. In almost every industry, teams of professionals are working together to solve complex problems, create innovative solutions, and achieve ambitious goals. Whether you're a business leader, a scientist, an artist, or an educator, the ability to collaborate effectively is crucial.

What is Collaboration?

Collaboration is the process of working together with others to achieve a common goal. It involves pooling resources, skills, knowledge, and ideas to create something that no individual could create alone. Collaboration is not simply about dividing tasks or working in parallel; it requires communication, cooperation, and a shared sense of purpose.

Why is Collaboration Important?

Collaboration is important for several reasons. First, it enables individuals to combine their unique skills and knowledge to create something greater than the sum of its parts. When people collaborate, they can bring diverse perspectives and approaches to a problem, which can lead to more innovative solutions.

Second, collaboration fosters a sense of community and shared ownership. When people work together on a project, they develop a sense of pride and investment in the outcome. This can lead to a stronger sense of teamwork and a greater commitment to achieving the goal.

Third, collaboration can lead to better outcomes. When people collaborate, they can avoid the pitfalls of individual bias or blind spots. They can also share the workload, which can help prevent burnout and increase productivity.

How to Collaborate Effectively

Collaboration is not always easy. It requires individuals to put aside their egos, communicate openly and honestly, and be willing to compromise. Here are some tips for collaborating effectively:

Clearly define the goal: It's important to start with a clear understanding of what you're trying to achieve. Make sure everyone on the team has a shared sense of purpose.

Communicate openly and honestly: Good communication is essential for collaboration. Make sure everyone on the team has a chance to voice their opinions and ideas.

Set clear expectations: Define the roles and responsibilities of each team member. Make sure everyone understands what they are responsible for and what is expected of them.

Build trust: Trust is essential for effective collaboration. It's important to establish trust among team members by being reliable, accountable, and respectful.

Be willing to compromise: Collaboration often requires compromise. Be open to different perspectives and be willing to make changes to achieve the goal.


Collaboration is essential for success in today's world. By pooling resources, skills, knowledge, and ideas, individuals can create something greater than the sum of its parts. Effective collaboration requires good communication, clear expectations, trust, and a willingness to compromise. When done well, collaboration can lead to better outcomes, a stronger sense of community, and a greater sense of fulfillment.

  5. Shareability

Detailed explanation:

Happy Learning always!!


Grade 7

Grade 7 students presenting their English Poems.

The students were influenced by the poems of Tu Fu, the Great Chinese poet.

Tu Fu (712-770) was a great Chinese poet of the T'ang dynasty. He is known as a poet-historian for his portrayal of the social and political disorders of his time and is also noted for his artistry and craftsmanship.

Grade 9 - IC Journal Making

The English Department at BIS recognizes the crucial role that effective self-expression plays in personal and academic development. With this in mind, they organized an IntraClass Journal Making Competition for 9th-grade students. This competition aimed to encourage students to hone their writing skills and develop their creative expression. The learners had carefully chosen a theme and procured necessary materials well in advance of the competition. During the event, they were allocated an A3 sheet and given 40 minutes to create their journals.

By participating in this event, students had the opportunity to showcase their unique perspectives and ideas through the medium of journaling. Overall, the endeavor to cultivate a culture of creative self-expression among their students was effectively accomplished.

The journals were evaluated based on the students' use of language, originality, and creativity. The students' journals reflected their unique perspectives and showcased their impressive writing abilities.

The competition was a close call, but in the end, three students emerged as winners. The first prize was awarded to Palak Singhvi for her exceptional journal that showcased her creativity and originality. The second prize went to Charu Somani whose journal stood out for its engaging language and depth of thought. The third prize was awarded to Deepak Solanki whose journal impressed the judges with its unique perspective and strong writing skills.


Every diligent student around the world is encouraged by their teachers to read the newspaper daily, to reap wide-ranging benefits. The newspaper has accurate, detailed coverage of everything, ranging from current affairs, politics, science and technology, sports, education, health, medicine, industry, and the markets. In addition to increasing knowledge, reading the newspaper daily enhances the vocabulary of the students. Over time, this manifests itself in better reading, writing, and oratory skill sets.

To help children be abreast of the key developments across the world and proficient in language skills, BIS introduced newspaper reading in classrooms. Grade 10 FLE students read the article ‘Why Read Magazines’ in The Hindu – School Edition and drafted advertisements to highlight the benefits of reading magazines using persuasive devices. They were given 30 seconds to present their advertisements in class.


For the essay paper, AS Level students are required to be thorough with their knowledge of the world and its relevance in modern times. Group discussion is a very effective tool in the classroom to get an idea about the level of understanding of a particular topic among students. In a 40-minute lesson, the first 20 minutes are dedicated to lecturing and imparting knowledge on a topic. The last 12-15 minutes are dedicated to a GD or a debate session where students come up with their knowledge and understanding of the topic along with relevant examples. The feedback is provided to students in the last 5 minutes. Such student-centric sessions arouse the interest of students and enhance their perspective on the subject. This way, they are able to write cogent essays for their board exams.

Grade 11 students participated in a Group Discussion on ‘The Role of History in Modern Society’ and presented their views.



Storytelling brings language learning alive and creates a participatory and immersive experience that allows young learners to enjoy hearing the language in a dynamic, sometimes stylistic, and entertaining way. Participation using key vocabulary and phrases can create an awareness of rhythm and structure.

An Intra Class competition was aimed to encourage and expand innovative and creative thinking among the students by offering them the opportunity to express their unique thoughts while writing their story first followed by narrating their piece of writing. Story writing is an art that requires a lot of communication skills. To begin with, it requires the art of narrating things in an interesting way.

In order to write their short story, they went through a series of steps: Prewriting, Drafting, and Revision. Each of these steps helped them build upon each other to lead to their final short story. The class was divided into groups to brainstorm and sketch a plan to create a story in a group within 15 minutes of duration.



The importance of public speaking is clear, and research has even shown that kids who speak confidently and communicate effectively perform better academically. The major goal of teaching speaking skills is communicative efficiency. Language learners become confident by using their current proficiency. They are motivated to avoid confusion in the message because of faulty pronunciation, grammar, or vocabulary.

ALS is a component of the Subject Enrichment Activity under Internal Assessment by the board.

Parameters for Assessment: The speaking skills are to be assessed on the following parameters:

a. Interactive competence (Initiation & turn to take, relevance to the topic)

b. Fluency (cohesion, coherence, and speed of delivery)

c. Pronunciation

d. Language (grammar and vocabulary)


Amalgamation of Creativity with Learning

The Humanities department at Bodhi International School holds a unique position within the academic as well as co-curricular field. Our middle and high school scholars enjoy various art-integrated assignments during their regular class sessions. The month of April was bustling with art/social studies projects related to environmental awareness, mental/ physical health, and emotional bonding. Our facilitator introduced the concept of poster designing to the learners and encouraged them to create their own posters depicting their own themes and presenting their themes to the class. The intent was to encourage our students to design a poster with a subject matter that was meaningful for them personally and important towards generating social awareness. The presentation of individual topics selected by each child enhanced public speaking skills, and research skills and boosted self-confidence.

From the club corner

The Art and Social Science club meets on every day 6 of the cycle. The purpose of both these clubs is to encourage and enhance team-building skills. Our club sessions for the month of April focused on artwork to be displayed in the school. While working on these artistic projects, our learners were simultaneously engaged in preparing for an environmental quiz contest.

We look forward to a continuation of our association with the JITO community.


Science Club Activity

“We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.” – Carl Sagan

Post the initial meet and greet between the teachers and learners, The Science Club in their first club period prepared the members for the Science Quiz. For the Discovery and Invention round, the Science Club members have been focusing on the history of science, the discoveries, and inventions that have shaped the world we live in today. They have been studying the work of famous scientists such as Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, as well as learning about lesser-known scientists who have made important contributions to science. They have also been researching significant scientific discoveries and inventions, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA by Watson and Crick, the invention of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell, and the discovery of the laws of thermodynamics by Carnot and Clausius.

Eco-sapling (Grade 7- Intra-class Activity)

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."

- Nelson Henderson

We strongly believe that planting trees is important to our community and environment so an intra-class eco-sapling activity was conducted for Grade 7 students.

All the participants brought their saplings along with representation. Students delivered their message regarding the importance, uses, and benefits of their saplings through powerful presentations.

After the representation, students proceeded to the garden for the sapling planting activity. There were almost 30 saplings planted of different varieties.

It was a successful activity. Through the activity, the students learned that they can make a significant impact on the environment by planting more saplings, and it was a great experience for them to come together and work towards a common goal.

Conducting a newspaper report analysis activity for commerce club students as a group activity sounds like a great way to enhance their critical thinking and analytical skills. Analysing newspaper reports can help students develop their ability to understand and interpret current events, economic trends, and business-related news. It also provides an opportunity for students to apply their commerce knowledge in a real-world context.

Learners worked in groups across different grades and age groups in order to familiarise themselves with the current happenings in the Commerce world, be it related to Business Studies, Economics, or Accounting.


Students discussed about barter system and give their views

Barter System Views

Students discussed the barter system and their views on the barter system.

In this activity students were divided into groups. Each group has four members.

They all have shared their views related to the barter system and advantages and disadvantages of the Barter system.

The barter system is an economic system where goods or services are exchanged directly for other goods or services, without the use of money. It was used extensively in the past before the invention of currency and is still used in some parts of the world today.

In conclusion students added :- The barter system has both advantages and disadvantages and its relevance in today's world depends on the specific context and circumstances.

Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey of exploration and discovery. We hope that Commerce Department Insights becomes an essential resource that empowers you to thrive in the dynamic world of commerce.

Wishing you an insightful and productive reading experience!


BUT BEFORE THAT, LETS HEAR IT FROM OUR STUDENT OF GRADE 12 who recently attended the Young Entrepreneurship Bootcamp at BITS Pilani, Goa campus.

Recently, I had the opportunity of attending the Young Entrepreneurship Bootcamp at BITS Pilani, Goa campus and it was a truly enriching experience. I had the pleasure of meeting some brilliant entrepreneurs including Akarsh Shroff, Akash Singh, Amit Vasishta, Akhil Singh, Harish Uthayakumar and Karan Bajaj who provided a wealth of insights and knowledge about entrepreneurship. Their stories revealed that success is not just about hard work but also involves creativity, risk-taking and resilience.

The bootcamp provided an excellent opportunity to network with fellow students who share similar goals of venturing into entrepreneurship. The discussions we had about different business ideas and strategies were both fascinating and informative, and I made some great connections with like-minded individuals. I am grateful to Professor Mridula Goel for organizing this wonderful event and bringing together such a diverse and inspiring group of entrepreneurs.

Overall, YEB was a phenomenal experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in entrepreneurship. I'm grateful for the opportunity and excited to see where this journey takes me.

Last Day

Last day is here,

yet it doesn’t feel real

It feels that it was just yesterday,

when we met on the school day.

Not many shed the tears,

But we all remember the memories of past 8 years.

“Who all are coming tomorrow”

was the default dialogue,

I wish I could continue it,

but everyone needs to sail their ship.

Last time to wear school dress

Last time to be called as students

Last time to be together as a class

Last time to remember the fun time with teachers,

the anxiety before exams,

the way we cried to get a free period,

the shouts when our marks were disclosed,

the laughter in dining hall,

the silence during meditation,

the prayers we did with dedication

and our expressions during expeditions!

It was fun… the laughter, the mess, the memories and the punishments;

the work, the pleading, the calling and the submissions;

the talk, the teasing, the fights and the reconciliations.

Let’s meet sometime,

when we have opportunity,

to reminisce the school chime,

and our insanity.
