"The quality of Mercy is not strained

It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven

Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest;

It blesseth him that gives and him that takes …"

- William Shakespeare

Editorial

My dear readers,

The theme of this year's Yearbook is 'Mercy'. When I picked up the pen to write a few

words to you, the famous lines of the bard came to my mind, written centuries ago, yet

so relevant today.

When we consider ourselves individually, we are members of our families. On a wider

perspective we belong to institutions, communities and are citizens of our country. What

do we expect from our fellow citizens? Compassion, love, understanding, forgiveness

and mercy. Since time immemorial, the sages have spoken about these qualities. At GH,

we give importance to humane qualities along with academic excellence.

Dear readers, the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense

of well-being. Let us learn to forgive and be merciful. Only then can we claim to be the

best creation of God.

Let us join hands and show mercy. Together we can make this world a beautiful place for

ourselves and our descendants.

With warm wishes

Rahat Nilofer


Provincial's Message

Iam really delighted to know that this year SFX

Greenherald International School is going to

publish their school magazine 2015-2016.

Congratulations and best wishes dear sisters,

teachers, staffs and students for your initiative to

publish magazine. I also came to know that the

theme of this magazine is "Mercy". Pope Francis

declared year-2016 the Year of Mercy. "Mercy is

kindness exercised toward the miserable and

includes pity, compassion, forbearance, and

gentleness, which the Scriptures so abundantly

ascribe to God." - Charles Hodge.

Pope Francis mentioned in one of his homily about God's Mercy-God's

patience has to call forth in us the courage to return to Him, however

many mistakes and sins there may be in our life. ... My merit is God's

mercy. I am by no means lacking merits as long as He is rich in mercy.

If the mercies of the Lord are manifold, I too will abound in merits." -

Homily on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 7, 2013

Our God is a merciful God. Whatever mistake we have made, if we

come to Him with repentant heart He forgives us immediately. If God is

merciful and patient with us all the time, it is our duty to pray to him

always to grant us His mercy and patience in all times of our troubles

and desperations.

Moreover, Pope Francis encouraged the youth to continue "to be

dreamers [who] believe in a new humanity, one that rejects hatred

between peoples, one that refuses to see borders as barriers".

Through education only we can cultivate the value of mercy-kindness or

pity…We learn how to help others from our merciful heart. Formal and

Non-Formal education is the main service for our Congregation of Our

Lady of the Missions. Our Mother Foundress Euphrasie Barbier

felt the need of our people particularly for the education of

women. Therefore, Mother Euphrasie as soon as she reached in

Chittagong, she and other sisters started to learn Bengali and

Hindi languages in order to teach the girls. Our Mother realized

that only education can change the society. Education is a

process of inviting truth and possibility. It is grounded in a desire

that at all may flourish and share in life. It is a cooperative and

inclusive activity that looks to help people to live their lives as well

as they can. Education is the one of the best ways to nurture to

be a merciful to others.

A person will be a merciful person through her/his education in

the school, particularly through our Greenherald School, where

students learn not only intellectual knowledge but also learn and

practice different values in their lives. Therefore, we really feel

very proud of you dear students that you are receiving an allround

formation/education where you particularly learn and

practice how to be a merciful person in our society and above all

in our country and world at large.

Once again I congratulate you dear Sisters, Teachers, Staffs and

Students for your dedication and commitment to the Education in

our Greenherald International School. May our Merciful God

bless you all and our school abundantly.

Sister Supriti Bibiana Costa, RNDM

Provincial of Bangladesh Province


Message from the Principal

Iam delighted to say a few words to you whenever I get a chance, my

beloved students. The 2015-2016 magazine is ready for publication,

thanks to your tireless efforts, which is an achievement in itself. It is

obvious that you have done a lot of hard work throughout the year. The

theme of this year's magazine is Mercy. The quality of mercy is

undoubtedly the noblest of all virtues. The merciful God is Himself the

source and inspiration for all to become merciful. The theme of mercy is

very appropriate as we find ourselves in a world of increasing inhumanity.

It is one of the darkest moments we are experiencing and we must focus

to see the light, which only mercy and compassion can bring.

In Greenherald, we are trying to cultivate an atmosphere of

understanding, acceptance, tolerance and mercy. Differences in faith

make us richer in knowledge, wisdom and culture. It is this diversity that

makes us unique and united.

Dear parents and guardians, we need to be vigilant against any

negative instincts that create division. Let us help our children develop

a positive vision and create a perfect world where we will remain "one"

cherishing and celebrating our differences. Where we believe that we

are all in this life together. Let us strive for a world which has no

boundaries or divisions.

Dear parents, please take good care of your God-given children. Give

them the guidance, the right kind of information, which could mould

them into good human beings. Give them a chance to develop their full

potential later in life. Make sure they are receiving love, affection and

appreciation from the family but not at the cost of being over indulgent.

Correct them and reprimand them when necessary. Respect and

reward them when they deserve it but above all, help them to build selfconfidence

and self-esteem. Empower them and let them make the

right choices in their lives.

A family is the most important institution in society which is

charged with guiding young people to become productive and

successful citizens. Take a genuine interest in their lives and talk

about the changes, the feelings, the struggles, the surprises, the

dreams and the joys of growing up. Help them develop a respect

for life, teach them how to cherish themselves and understand the

importance and beauty of reaching out to the fellow human beings

irrespective of their faith, cast and creed.

I would like to end by reminding you all that “love, mercy and

compassion are necessities, not luxuries; without them humanity

cannot survive”. May our merciful God bless us in our pursuit to

gaining virtue and knowledge.

Thank you

Sr. Virginia Asha Gomes, RNDM

Principal & CIE Local Secretary


School Anthem

‘T was in the year 71

That Independence had been won

And Bangladesh became a new land!

The skies were heavenly blue

When we reached year '72

And S.F.X. Greenherld took its stand!

Oh, Greenherald, we love you

Oh, Greenherald, we owe you

May we always bear your name

Never cease to keep your fame

And shine with gifts that you have helped us gain!

As we stand here all as one

May our lives, which have begun

Never cease to praise our God and heavenly King

And with V.K. as our guide

Let us always firmly strive

To keep our hearts alive so let us sing

Oh, Greenherald, we love you

Oh, Greenherald, we owe you

May we always bear your name

Never cease to keep your fame

And shine with gifts that you have helped us gain!

had turned all the Octonauts into jelly and they

sang a song and went to a planet named Mars

Pop. Pinto was sad to see this, so he turned himself into a flower.

I smiled at him and said, "Let's go to Mars Pop, too!" He said,

"OK!" So we flew to Mars Pop and saw Stephenie, Ariyata, Adrika,

Alif, Amiya and Mervin. I was so surprised to see them. Then I

played with them

lots of games. By

and by, Pinto was

lost in Mars Pop.

Suddenly I found a

was Pinto. Slowly he

became a penguin

again and everything

was back to normal.

LIFE OF A FARMER

Ariq Ahmed

Class I - Roses

In Bangladesh the life of a farmer is not good. He is usually

poor, landless, illiterate. So a farmer in most cases has to work

on land of others. He has only a pair of bullocks and some

hand-made tools like ploughs, spades, hoes and rakes. He gets up very early in

the morning and goes to his field to work. Mid of the day he eats his meal, takes

some rest and again he works till sunset. A farmer is left on the mercy of nature.

Sometimes he faces severe hardship and leads a very miserable life. He cannot

even manage two meals a day. He cannot send his children to school and educate

them. He is a poor farmer, who works hard in the field and grows food for all.

KEEPING OUR SURROUNDINGS CLEAN

Angel Arshi

We must keep our surroundings neat and clean. This will

help us to live healthy and better lives. Keeping our

surroundings clean will only help in the betterment of

society.

Waste or garbage should not be thrown anywhere, and everywhere, but we

can use dustbins for keeping garbage or waste. Throwing garbage all over the

place will only make our surroundings dirty and pollute the environment.

We can keep our air fresh by planting trees. Try planting trees and plants that

will beautify our surroundings as well as keep us healthy. Greener surroundings look beautiful and also reduce pollution

which keep us fit and healthy. So, keep the surroundings clean and live happy and healthy lives.

Labiba Raida Hossain

Class I - Tulip

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

Trees are very useful for us. They

support the life of living things.

When we breathe we produce

Co2. Trees replace this Co2 with O2. Trees prevent

drought and floods. Trees are needed for making

paper, furniture and houses. They are used in

everything. We can

rest under the cool

shades of a tree.

They are the

sources of the fruits

and flowers. Man

must stop cutting

more trees,

otherwise he will

suffer greatly.

I love dear Sister Barbara

who is our in-charge. I am

very lucky to have the best

in charge in this world. She is like our

friend and guide. If we do any wrong, she

shows us the right way with her lovely

smile. She always encourages us to

maintain discipline. We get her always

beside us when any of us is in trouble. She

hears our problems with patience and

solves those with her love and care. She

extracurricular activities besides our regular

study. We thank her from the bottom of our

My favourite game is Cricket. Cricket is the most

popular game in present. Bangladesh is no

exception. Generally, we watch cricket match on

television and sometimes we go to the stadium. As a result we

become big fan of cricket. I along with my friends collect cricket

materials and go to play in front of our house. The road is wide

enough for playing cricket. I play cricket everyday.

Last year, I went to

see the Statue of

Liberty in USA with

my family. It's

located on the

Liberty Island in

New York Harbor in

New York City, in

the USA. It is one of

the most memorable

national monuments

in the world. It was a

gift of friendship

from the people of

France. It is visited

by millions of people

all around the world

every day. I had a

great and memorable

trip at the Statue of

Liberty.

seller was waiting for some passengers. A train entered and left the

station without any delay. Only one passenger came out of the train - his

read the face of the customer but he could hardly see it in the dim light

of the hurricane. The silence of the deep night was not broken by the

stranger's sipping of the tea. The tea seller felt like sleeping for a while

and when he opened his eyes he found no one. He murmured, "where

is the man, am I dreaming?" and saw a five taka note on the table which

was the exact cost of the cup of tea. The stray dog barked once and then

went to sleep agsin.

TIGER

Ervin Odrian Gomes

Class II - Lilies

Last summer vacation, I went to visit Singapore with

my family. We saw many beautiful places and Zoo

there. When I went to the Zoo, I saw many wild

animals, but they were not kept in the cages. They were moving freely

in the shrubs around us. But when I went to a tiger's area, I was

surprised and afraid to see a big white tiger moving across a lake and

eating meat very carefully. Suddenly he saw a lot of people watching

him very closely; he gave a big roar and ran inside the jungle along with

that piece of meat. After a while, another white tigress came and

jumped to cross the lake. Then all visitors moved quickly inside a bus,

because he was hungry enough and wanted to hunt. I saw a little sheep

tied across the lake to an oak tree and the tigress hunted it. It was a

dreadful scene that I had ever seen. But the white tigers looked very

beautiful and have nice eyes like a soft white cat. This is the first time

I have seen a white tiger with my own eyes and their hunting patterns

that I will never forget.

Among all my teachers, Miss Shahana Ahmed

(Shanta) is my most favourite. She is very

pretty and she has a very kind heart. The way

she teaches and her accent made me more

impressive to her. She is very much caring to

all and she always makes us understand in a

The name of my little brother is Sarim Marsad

Pranon. He has born on 15th July, 2015. Wearing a

new dress I went to meet him. After he was born, I

was the first person who saw him. He was so cute that I couldn't even

move my eyes from him; tears rolled down from my eyes in joy. Many

of our relatives visited the hospital. When I heard about his coming, I

took lots of care of Mom, so that when he would be born, he would be

a healthy child. Before his birth, I bought many presents for him and

hid them in my room. When he came home, I gave him all those. Now

he is ten months old. He can only say "eemme!" Sometimes I call him

Prantush. He is my little angel and we both love each other very much.

I wish he will be my best friend in the future.

GOOD HYGIENE IN CHILDREN

Rudra Chakraborty

Class II - Roses

Educating children on good hygiene is the best way to avoid

the spread of infections and disorders. Teaching the principles

of correct hygiene at an early age can help keep individuals

healthy in later life. For this following things to be considered:

Oral Hygiene: To keep a good oral health children should be taught about

brushing teeth twice a day after meal.

Hand Washing: To keep

infections away from body

children should be

encouraged to wash their

hands effectively before

eating and after using toilet.

Nails: The nails and nail

beds contain germs. Nail

biting should be discouraged

and keeping nails short

should be encouraged to

maintain a germ free health.

Bathing: Children should be taught about regular bathing because it reduced

body odor and can help control skin problems.

We all should say, "Good Hygiene, Good Health, Good life."

WATER -

SYNONYMOUS

TO LIFE

Rudaba Manan

Class II - Roses

Water is very important for our life. Nothing

can live without water. Without water, plants

will die, can cause harm to humans and

animals. We need water for our body's daily

function like digestion and cleaning waste

products of our body. Our body will become

dry if we do not drink water properly.

Everyday we should drink eight glasses of

pure water to be

healthy.

INSTRUMENT

Nakhatra Gilbert Francis

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

S.F.X Greenherald International School

participated in the under-10 Hurray!

Handball Tournament 2016, in the Bangabandhu

Handball Stadium. 10 schools participated in this

tournament. I was a member of the Greenherald School

boys team. We trained for about a month in our school,

before the tournament started. On the first day of the

tournament, our games teacher took us to the stadium for

our first match. We were very excited to wear our jersey.

given to us by Handball Federation. We won two matches

but we lost one match. That's why we became the group

runners-up. The girls’ team was in the 3rd position

among all the team. It was a different experience for us

because it was the first time we played outside our school.

Hip Hip Hurray!!!!

The tradition of Indian music is oral. The problem

with on oral tradition is that there is much of its

history that is documented. There are many many versions of stories

doing the rounds as to how the instrument the tabla originates. One

of the stories is in the court

of the great emperor

Akbar. In his court

centuries back, there was

once a duel of rhythm

between two pakhavaj

players. The two pakhavaj

players were playing and

the king was watching it.

One of the pakhavaj

players realized that he was

going to lose the battle of rhythm and in frustration he bend the

pakhavaj on the floor and the instrument broke into two parts.

Instinctively he picked up one of the parts and he played it. There was

a beautiful sound. So he said in Hindi or Urdu language; ‘Tabhibola’

that word was later recognized as tabla. And thanks to the pakhavaj

player for whom we are being able to play the tabla. Teental is one of

the examples of taal played in tabla.

The name of my favourite player of Bangladesh is

Mustafizur Rahman . He was born at Satkhira. He is 20

years old. He is the best bowler of the WORLD T20 CUP.

He took five wickets in twenty-two runs. When he went

to play in the IPL the Indians gave him the name "The

wanted to learn Bengali. He became "the man of the

I only saw fireflies on TV channels and

on the internet. Once my father told

me how they used to play with fireflies

when they were kids, when they went

for holidays to their village. From that very moment I

became eager to know more about the fireflies and to see

them in real. I

got to know

some facts about

them through

the internet. In

many places the

insects called

fireflies are a

familiar sight in

summer. They

are noticeable

because they can

produce flashes

of light. Fireflies

belong to the

They are also

MY TRIP TO SYLHET

Adel Thamid

Class IV - Roses

There are many beautiful places in Bangladesh. During the Easter

holidays my family and I planned to go to Sylhet. We went by car

and reached there after five hours. Entering this place is the most

interesting experience. The place is covered with green hills, with

great plantations of tea. The weather is beautiful. We settled to a hotel with hills

inside it. The hotel was air conditioned and five star one. The name was Grand

Sultan named after the owner of the hotel. The next day we went to one of the

animal sanctuaries of Bangladesh. It is a rain forest and full of large trees. The name

of the forest is Lawachhara Rain Forest. When we entered, it was very hot. We saw

a lot of monkeys. There were many sign boards which were telling us to beware of dangerous animals; python, sloths, lizards,

snakes and some kind of posionous insects. People who go there need a guide. People who do not have a guide will lose their way.

There are security people for the poachers who kill the beautiful migratory birds. The sloths are the most endangered animals of

this rain forest. It is already becoming extinct because there are only a few of them left. After we returned, it started to rain heavily.

The hotel had many facilities. It had different kinds of games. Games like basketball, batminton and lawn tennis which are outdoor

games. These were complimentary for us, and games like table tennis and pool were not free. There is a movie theatre with

forty-four seats and a library with Religious, Philosphcal, Science, Bangla books. There are two swimming pools, one for the adults

and the other for the children. I really liked this place surrounded with the beautiful tea gardens.

MOTHER

Aye Than May

Class IV - Roses

Through centuries and through

millenniums this word has always been a

very dear one. It amazes me how much

love and adoration can fit into such a tiny word. From the

moment we were born till the end, our mothers have stood by

our sides, to help us, to guide us, to shape us and to gradually

prepare us for the real world. Yes, we all hate it when our

mothers scold us for the most trivial

of things. Trust me, we all have those

issues, but what we often do not

realise is that these small mistakes

that we are making today may result

in a big loss in future. And when

we'll look back, we'll regret not

listening to our mothers.

Mothers are the finest piece of art

that God has crafted. Mothers are

unique, divine, significant and

understanding and have hearts of

gold. They spread their warmth and

generosity through the universe and

can touch the coldest of hearts. They

have strong principles and are strong

warriors. They have the whole world

on their shoulders and yet they make it seem like a pair of wings.

They don't see us as who we are, they see us as who we have the

potential to be. And they remember our beauty when we feel ugly,

our wholeness when we are broken, our innocence when we are

guilty and our purpose when we are confused.

If I could unite the tears, the laughter, the smiles, the frowns, the

anger, the sadness, the happiness, the serenity, the strength, the scars,

the blemishes, the secrets, the beauty spots, the magnificence and

the harmony that are etched deep inside my mother's soul, then she

would become the universe; simply breath taking.

Mothers do so much for us, but we seem to notice only the things

they didn't do. When my mom did not let me buy the T-shirt that

had Panic! At The Disco plastered at the

front or when she didn't let me eat ice cream

because I had a slight cough. I was so upset

and grumbled about how she did not love

me at all. But as I write this, the realization

dawns upon me and I know now that love

doesn't necessarily need to be seen, it needs

to be felt. I guess we're all still learning to

recognise the ways in which this creature

works.

So, let's set this aside for once and appreciate

our mothers and help them when they need

it, make them smile and laugh, show them

hope and light when there are upset and love

them unconditionally for as long as the

world allows, because if you don't I swear

you'll regret it.

J.K. ROWLING

Koushin Unber

Class IV - Roses

J. K. Rowling is the queen of literature, a

breathtaking, an awe-inspiring novelist. The

one who opened the hearts of many young

readers, the one and only J.K. Rowling.

Joanne Rowling (aka Robert Galbraith); born 31 July 1965, is a

British novelist, screenwriter and film producer best known as

the author of the Harry Potter fantasy series. She was born in Yate,

Gloucestershire, England but the family moved to the nearby

village Winterbourne when Rowling was four.

She attended St. Michael's Primary School. As a child, Rowling

often wrote fantasy stories which she frequently read to her sister,

Dianne Rowling.

After a year of study in Paris, Rowling graduated from the

University of Exeter in 1986 and moved to London to work as a

researcher and bilingual secretary for Amnesty International and

this is where she conceived the idea for the Harry Potter series. In

1990, Rowling's mother died and her death heavily affected

Rowling's writing. She

was married to Jorge

Arantes in 1992 and

had a daughter, but

later they separated.

J.K. Rowling's many

books consist of: The

Harry Potter Series (7

books), Fantastic

Beasts and Where to

Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, The Casual Vacancy, Harry Potter and the

Cursed Child, The Silkworm and many others.

I am a big fan of Harry Potter and am currently on the 5th book. Everyone loves J.K.

Rowling and her stories because she has a marvelous mind for writing all these amazing

books. I recommend you to read them because they are, without doubt, amazing!

MY FAVOURITE GAME

Sabyashachi Roy

Class IV - Roses

My favourite game is

cricket. It was

introduced by France

and its birth place is

considered as England. Eleven Players

participate in this game in each team. In

earlier times children used to play village

'Gollachhut', 'Kanamachhi', 'Dariyabanda',

'Bouchi', 'Football' etc but now they are

crazy about Cricket. In Cricket there are

batsmen, wicket keeper, bowlers and

fielders to play the game. The Umpires

decide whether it is No ball, L.B.W., Wide, Not out, Six or Four. In Bangladesh

team my favourite player is Mushfiqur Rahim and from foreign teams Jason Roy

of England and M. S. Dhoni of India. They play good cricket. I would like to play

cricket like them.

I have a dream. I want to see an international match in the stadium, especially

Bangladesh-India or Bangladesh-England match. Whenever I get the opportunity

I would like to go to Mirpur stadium to see a match.

Emirates Airlines and we had a transit in Dubai for 12 hours.

In Dubai, We went to the tallest building in the world named

'Burj-al-Khalifah. It was a very beautiful sight. Then we

went to our hotel. At 6:00 am we went to the airport for our

destination, Texas, USA. It was an 18 hours direct flight and

finally we reached Houston Intercontinental Airport. We

went to my uncle's house at Dallas from the airport. There

was a cute little girl named Samar. She is my cousin. I played

all the time with her.

Beside Texas, we visited some more famous places. The

Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Manhattan, Coney Islands etc.

in New York. The Statue of Liberty holds a tablet in one

hand and a torch in the other. We visited the white House,

American President's office in Washington DC in Virginia.

We also visited Little Rock in Arkansas, home town of

former US president Mr. Bill Clinton.

In Texas, we visited NASA space station. I jumped from

Mars to Earth there. We visited former President George

Bush’s city and many more. I got many pictures there. I

really enjoyed the trip very much.

THE AGE OF THE

UNIVERSE AND

THE END

Ricky Barua

Class IV - Tulips

We all know that our Earth was formed between 4 to 5

billion years ago. Our first universe age was The Dark

Age dating back to 380,000 billion years from now, when

even the Sun was not formed. Dark stars with bitterly

cold space began and slowly after 180,000 billion years

heat and magnetic cells gathered and space rocks were

formed. After 1 billion years, stars were to be formed. In

less than 21 billion years our stars were formed. Now is

the time for the Sun. The tiny fractions of seconds

formed gradually. But before time was super mystery

which no one could find out. Oh, sorry I have forgotten

to tell you about the first second of the universe, the

Epoch and the cosmological time. Of course with less

than 13.8777777 years ago the universe was formed.

Within less than 13 billion years Big Bang explosion took

place with the red nebula and it formed into a disk which is our Sun. The Earth

was formed afterwar.

The end of the universe: First the Sun became the giant in the space and finally

destroyed the other planets and stars. And finally after 5 billion years our Earth had

"lava seas". The Stelliferous Era ended as stars eventually died and fewer were born

to replace them leading to a dark universe. Various theories suggest a number of

subsequent possibilities. Assuming proton decay, matter may eventually evaporate

into a Dark Era (heat death). Alternatively the universe may collapse in a Big

Crunch. Alternative suggestions include a false vacuum catastrophe or a Big Rip as

possible ends to the universe.

AN AUTO BIOGRAPHY OF A

BOOK

Abraham Shalokko khan

Class IV - Tulips

Hello! I am a book and my name

is "ARABIAN NIGHTS". At the

outset I was kept in a library. I saw many people in the

library anxiously looking for various books. But I was

situated in such a place that none could find me. Every month the Librarian put

new books and they rearranged all the books and I always hoped they set me in a

place everyone could see me but in vain.

One day I fell from my shelf by a person who took a book beside me. I got hurt,

and that time someone saw me and bought me. Seemed that the person who

bought me was very rich. And since then I have been kept in a very nice place.

I have made many friends and many great things have happened, all my series of

books have been here and from then onwards the wheel of my fortune has turned.

THANKS!

MAGIC

Yasa Zaheen

Class IV - Tulips

This is an amazing magic trick of

prediction. Your audience would be

amazed to see this trick. The materials

needed for this trick are: two large paper

bags, small

pieces of paper

to write, one

pen & a fruit.

The magician

chooses two

volunteers

randomly from

the audience. One of them would be holding the bag with

the pieces of paper, and the other one would be holding

another bag in which there is the fruit that the magician had

predicted. First the magician gives one bag to each of the

volunteers. The magician tells the audience to name some

fruit one by one.

Each time the

magician writes

the name of the

fruit on the

piece of paper

and drops the

piece of paper in

to the volunteer's

bag who was

supposed to be

holding the pieces

of paper. Then

when the

magician thinks

OK, this many

names are fine he stops the audience from saying any more

name. Then the magician calls the volunteer with the paper.

After this, the magician mixes the bag with the pieces of paper

and tells the volunteer to close his/her eyes and tells him/her

to pick any on piece of paper from the bag. Once the

volunteer chooses the paper, the magician reads the paper out

loud to the audience for example

"Apple." Then the

magician tells the

other volunteer to

put his/her hand

in his/her bag

and tell him/her

to take the thing

out. Amazingly

the thing would

be an apple.

Secret: While writing

the magician writes only apple

in all the papers instead of writing different. And before the

magic the magician puts an apple in the bag.

A VISIT TO COX'S

BAZAR SEA-BEACH

Shayanto Nawar

Class IV - Tulips

We had a long summer vacation in

last July and August and we decided

to go on a trip to Cox's Bazar, the longest unbroken

sea beach in the world and the top tourist

destination of Bangladesh. We were 10 people

(my family, my mother's colleagues and

their children). All of them came to our

house and we have started our journey

from there at 9 am. We enjoyed a lot in

the bus. After thirteen hours we

reached Cox's Bazar at 10 pm. We

stayed in a hotel named 'Prashad

Paradise' in Cox's Bazar. The hotel was

very near to the beach. We could see the

beach from our room. This was for the

first time I went there, so I was very

excited and my mother took my brother

and me to the beach for a short time. In the

next morning, we woke up early and went to the

beach with my father. My younger brother and I

collected shells from the beach. We made a sand castle

but the waves destroyed it. We were sad for a moment

but the next moment we decided to make a new one

further away from the sea. We rode on a motor bike for two hours and

saw the sparkling beach in the light of the bright sun.

My father told us that it is a total of 125 kilometre long sea beach and

the name Cox's Bazar was derived from its founder, Captain Cox. He

founded this very attractive beach in 1798. Next morning, we went to

the beach and rode a motor bike. In the afternoon, we went to the

Kolatoli and Laboni beach. We visited other tourist attractions around

Cox's Bazar by a Jeep. Next day, in the morning, we went to the Inani

beach where corals were all around. It is bordered by

hills and forests. We saw seashells of different

colours, shapes and sizes. We also visited

Himchori, which is famous for Himchari

Waterfall and its natural beauty. We also

visited Aggmeda Khyang, a large

elaborately planned and decorated

Buddhist Monastery. It is located near

the entrance to the Cox's Bazar town.

The monastery holds a big collection of

manuscripts, prayer chamber, bronze

Buddha images of Burmese origin and

an assembly hall. Lastly, we had a drive to

a small town called Teknaf which is about

80 km from Cox's Bazar. It was a memorable

experience as the roads go alongside the

beautiful Naf river and through forested hilly

roads. Teknaf is the southernmost point of Bangladesh

and is bordered by Myanmar. We stayed there for four days and spent

many wonderful moments there. When I flew to Dhaka by air, I

missed every moment of the visit.

A JOURNEY BY

TRAIN

Musabbir Uddin Arham

Class IV - Tulips

I've always wanted to go on a train

ride. Mom and Dad surprised me

one day after dinner, when they said that the whole

family was going to Grandma and Grandpa by train. I

was so excited that I couldn't even eat the chocolate

pudding Mom had made for dessert.

We left one Saturday morning after breakfast. We drove

into the town, parking in next to the station. We looked

around the station, which was really big. Then we heard

an announcement over the loudspeaker: a booming

voice said our train was ready for boarding.

We walked through a tunnel with shiny floors, then up

a stairway. There were two rows of windows one above

the other. My Dad said it was a car lounge, where people

talked and set to look at the passing scenery.

The conductor came to our compartment a few minutes

later. He took our tickets and told us the on lounge right

next door was open and that they would serve lunch in

two hours. I smiled at Mom as he said it. We walked to

the on lounge as the train started to move. I could hardly

tell at first, but the noise was loud and the floor moved

as we walked. I sat in the lower berth. There were

others, too. We ate popcorn and drank soft drinks. It was

fun! Later, Mom and

Dad came down and

said it was time to eat.

I spent the rest of the

afternoon wandering

between our

compartment and the

on lounge. I liked our

compartment, because

Dad pulled down the

upper bunk and let me play up there. There were lots of coat hooks that

folded out of the wall, and I hung things on them all. Later, I played

checkers with Dad. He's not a very good player - I almost always won.

When I climbed up, the night had become dark. We couldn't see much

outside anymore, since there was no light. I turned on a night light above

my bed, so I could read. I looked at a comic book, but it only took a few

minutes for my eyelids to get heavy. So, I turned off the light and went to

sleep.

The next morning the sun was shining and there were green pine trees

around. We ate breakfast in the dining car, where the chef made me a

pancake with a smiling face on it. When we slowed to a stop at the station,

Grandma and Grandpa were waiting for us. They hugged us and asked if

we had a good trip. I said that we sure did. The train stayed in the station

for only five minutes or so, and I sadly waved goodbye when it left. I

walked away, holding my Mom's hand.

I asked Dad if we could take the train again the next time we visit Grandma

and Grandpa. He said we could. I'll keep reminding him so that he doesn't

forget.

4 YEARS IN

ENGLAND

Shreas Labib Arion

Class IV - Daisies

I went to England in December, 2009

because of my father's was

completing his Phd. Our first stop was Qatar Airport.

There we stayed for about three hours and then set out

for London. My first experience of snow was the

moment we landed. It was so cold

there that I was shivering. The first

days we were in London, we went to

many places in London like the art

gallery, London Eye Tower, Thames

River, etc. We hired a taxi and headed

for Reading. On our way we saw

many farms which had animals like

goats, sheep, horses, etc. On the way

we also saw many oat fields. After a few days, I was admitted to a

school called Alfred Sutton Primary School. The experience there

was really good one because the teachers were very friendly and

helpful. There was no pressure for us in studying and they also gave

us free fruits, snacks and milk whenever we went out to play. They

also used to take us for outings. The schools in England and

Bangladesh are really different because in England there was no

pressure us and we did all our learning through fun activities. A few

years later we went to visit the house of Shakespeare. It was located

in Stratford-upon-Avon. We went there by a train. There was a flood

of tourists in Shakespeare's house. The house was the same as it was

when he lived. His bed and his swing were in the same place. There

were also two people acting in the play Romeo and Juliet. We also

went to an island in England called Isle of Wight near Southampton.

We went there by a gigantic ferry which took us about an hour. In

front of almost every house we saw a small private

plane. Lots of rich people live there and the island is

mostly hilly. In England, during the summer time what

really surprised me was that when we had our dinner

at 9:00 pm the sun was still there. The other thing is

that in winter the sun sets at 3:00 pm, plus the winter

season and the rainy season were together!!!

I spent four years in England with a lot of fun and wish

to go there again.

SIR JAGADISH

CHANDRA

BOSE

Anusree Chakraborty

Class IV - Daisies

Throughout our history, there have been

many great men who accomplished many

great things that have benefited human

kind. Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose was one of

them. Children of my age know very little

of his discoveries and contributions to

science.

Acharya Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose was a

polymath, physicist, biologist, botanist,

archaeologist, as well as an early writer of

science fiction. He was the first to invent

radio and microwave optics. He made very

significant contributions to plant science

and laid the foundations of experimental

science in the Indian subcontinent. He is

also considered as the father of Bengali

science fiction. He also invented the

crescograph. A crater on the moon has

been named to honour him.

Sir Bose was born in Mymensingh on 30 November 1858. His father Bhagawan

Chandra Bose worked as a Deputy Magistrate in Faridpur. After completion of his

studies in London, he joined the Presidency College of the University of Calcutta

as a Professor of Physics. He made remarkable progress in his research of remote

wireless signalling and was the first to use

semiconductor junctions to detect radio

signals. However, instead of trying to gain

commercial benefit from this

invention, Bose made his inventions

public in order to allow others to

further develop his research.

Sir Jagadish Bose also discovered

that plant has life like other

animals. He subsequently made

a number of pioneering

discoveries in plant physiology.

He used his own invention, the

crescograph, to measure plant

response to various stimuli and

thereby scientifically proved

parallelism between animal and plant

tissues.

Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose died on 23 November

1937 in Kolkata.

Class IV - Daisies

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

Weather is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that is

hot or cold, dry or wet, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.

Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere, just

below the stratosphere. Weather refers to day - to - day temperature and the

precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the statistics of

atmospheric condition over long periods of time. When used without

qualification, “weather” is generally understood to mean the weather of

earth.

As extreme weather increases, Bangladesh braces for the worst. Scientists are

predicting that warming conditions will bring more frequent and more

intense extreme weather

conditions. Their warnings hit

home in densely populated

areas in Bangladesh, which

historically had been hit by

devastating sea surges and

cyclones.

the morning , 6:00

a.m. we went to the

Kamalapur Railway

Station and waited

for the train . It took

us 3hours to reach

Srimongol . A car

came from the hotel

to take us to Grand

Sultan. On the way, a

man from the hotel

showed us lots of tea garden and some tourist

place of Srimongol. We reached Grand Sultan at

10 o' clock. We were surprised to see such a nice

resort. It has three swimming pools, two

children's playground, basketball court , golf

court, movie theater, library and many other

things. Their food was very good. We stayed for

two days there. We had a lots of fun in Grand

Sultan Resort. Hope I go there once again.

WORLD WAR I: A TALE

OF SORROWS

Ayaz Hamid Jaiyan

Class V - Tulips

World War I was one of the largest war in

history. It is estimated that about 17 million

people died in this war. The entire Europe was mobilized for

this war. And after the German U-boats attacked the British

liner RMS Lusitania which carried 128 American passengers,

the United States entered the war. But what caused this war?

Let's find out.

The war was triggered by the assassination of Archduke

Franz Ferdinand of Austria, who was heir to the throne of

the Austro-Hungary Empire. He was shot by Serbian

student Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo on 28 June, 1914.After

this incident, the Austro-Hungary Empire declared war on

Serbia and invaded it on 28 July, 1914.As the Russian Empire

was in favor of the Serbians, they mobilized their troops in

order to attack the Austro-Hungarians in the Eastern

Front. Meanwhile, the German Empire invaded Belgium

and Luxembourg. Why did they invade it? Well, there are

several reasons. But what I know is that Germany was an

ally of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Before the war,

both empires formed an alliance called the Duel Alliance.

However, Germany didn't support Austro-Hungarians

that much. They were just looking for excuses to expand

their empire. So, after the German invasion of Belgium,

United Kingdom declared war on Germany as the British

were in support of Belgium. Slowly, the war started. The

United Kingdom, Russian Empire, France and some

other countries such as Romania and Greece formed the

Triple Entente. Germany, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman

Empire and Bulgaria formed the Central Powers. The war

was intense. Even though the United Kingdom was the

best prepared nation for the war, neither side had an

advantage. At first, it seemed as if the Triple Entente

would lose the war as the Russian government collapsed

and had to sign a treaty with the German Empire. This

was a big victory for the Germans as Russia was one of the

144


largest empire at that time. The war was disastrous. Even chemical weapons were used during the war. However, the tide changed

as the United States and Japan entered the war in 1917. With fresh new troops against them the Central Powers lost and the war

ended. However, so many countless lives were lost, that World War 1 was considered the war to end all wars because of its massive

impact of unrest on Europe. It was actually, not the last Great War in history as World War II was launched shortly after.

WHERE ARE WE

HEADING?

Orthi Onupom

Class VIII - Jupiter

The scorching sun dried up the

creeks and lakes in the north and the

raging rivers were reduced to shallow streams; yet

there was no water to replace it. The people trembled

under the garish light of the summer sun and suffered

from long days of unquenched thirst. The once

flowing rivers were now ditches full of stagnant water.

People drew water from the wells but even they were

drying up. Generally, it was the melting of the ice

from the Himalayas that supplied the gallons of fresh

water flowing through this riverine country, but not

anymore. The government of the neighbouring

country had put a dam in purlieu of the borders

retaining all the water for themselves and none for

their neighbours on the other side. And the people

suffered silently for they could not voice their plight.

Those who could did not suffer and those who

suffered could not speak up.

The water retained was more than the people of the

country needed. Its uses went far beyond simply

drinking to remain hydrated. It served to provide

huge incomes which in turn brought luxury and

comfort and extravagance to important figures. They

knew nothing of the sufferings they had inflicted and

if they did they turned a blind eye. The newspapers and media spoke of

the dam as'a big success'. It had helped boost the economy - the

thousands of people dying of thirst and water-borne diseases as a result

were just casualties in the long run. After all, they had their own thirsts

to quench - their thirst for wealth. And in order to do so, they had taken

away what rightly belonged to everyone regardless of nationality or

social status. But that doesn't really make much sense, does it? Aren't we

always taught to think of others before we think of ourselves? Isn't that

the first rule you must follow to be a leader? I believed so.

At one point during the World Wars and Civil Wars, the arms industries

were at their peaks. But then it all settled down. There were

disagreements and riots but nothing that required heavy artillery. The

weapons industries thrived but they lost the inflow of customers. And

so the owners felt the loss and as a result the politicians felt a loss - a loss

in their 'trifling' extra incomes. At length, they conjured up a way to set

the industries back on their prosperous path. They needed a war. So

they nudged vulnerable countries, races - set them up against each other

- promised to provide backup, made alliances. They started a war. Entire

towns were wiped out, thousands were killed, many more made

homeless, many children made orphans. The entire region was labelled

by these very people as insecure and unsettled. And for what? Just so

that the factory owners could get what they wanted - more wealth. The

wrecked cities, the howls of anguish, they were casualties that could not

be helped. After all, they had their own families to think of. Plus, the

politicians would benefit from the industries and so would the

government - taxes and all. And then this money would be used to

improve infrastructure and increase increments and provide support.

And so it would go back to the people, wouldn't it? It is their own

wealth. That's what they told themselves and the others. But from the

time we started learning, weren't we always kept from fighting, from

156


hurting people? We were always taught that peace was an

important factor in human life, something we should always

try to keep. It is the combined effort of the leaders and the

people that can help retain peace. But how can we keep

peace if we jump at any chance we get to destroy it just

because it may make us rich?

Differences have always brought a reaction out of people

which is why Cortez killed the Aztecs when he reached the

New Continent. He did not want to share with or yield to

those who looked and lived differently from him - those he

thought were inferior to him. A similar notion persists today.

And from there sprouts racism and discrimination - a

shocking problem in the present world. The wealth to be

preserved here is not money but our superiority, our control.

The minorities due to fewer numbers or their down-toearth

simplicity are always overruled and exploited....A girl

can never lead as efficiently as a man. They are too weak and

emotional...This is our territory and we decide who can

enter and who can't; and I say, "NO REFUGEES

ALLOWED".... These lines are haunting examples of the

many hurtful judgements passed onto people who are either

prejudicially considered weak or physically appear different.

That is what we have done...we have taken a whole,

complete sphere known as the world and marred it with

both physical and racial borders all over the landmasses. We

have created the differences and we have set the bench

marks...Whatever happened to equality, uniformity? Isn't

that why we have uniforms in school? So that we can learn

to treat each other as equals? Isn't that what makes a leader -

a sense of fellowship? That's what I was taught, at least.

You see, the world today runs after wealth - and dignity, and

power, and fame - and so caught up are we in our wild goose

chases, that we forget what matters the most. This is not to say that

tolerance and equality are extinct. Not at all. There are many

regions even today where race and colour and politics and money

do not shape people's lives - where people live as people and not

as killing machines or heartless robots set on doing what they have

been commanded to do. But their numbers are dwindling

between single digits now. We are all different if we come to think

of it. All of us have unique personalities and it is in our uniqueness

that we have our similarities. Each of us is unique! And therefore,

we should know how it feels to be different and so instead of

shoving it away, we should embrace it. There is one more thing we

all have and that is our buried humanity. It is what we have in

common and it is the wealth all of us possess. It is also the one

thing many of us fail to nurture. After all, this is an issue

frequently spoken of today. We must distribute our wealth equally.

We must help our brothers in distress. We must unite in order to

end this war. We must all financially contribute as much as we can.

We must...We must...We must... It is what we hear our leaders and

preachers say all the time. But maybe, it isn't capital wealth that we

actually need to share. Maybe the wealth we need isn't resources

or donations or deeds. Maybe the wealth we need is the grace of

kindness, the spark of unity, the notion of equality, the desire to

love and the need to help. Maybe what we need is the willingness

to think about others, even if just for a moment. What we need is

the thirst to be the cause of a smile. To have a heart. To be humane.

Maybe all the wealth we ever need is "the wealth we have in

common".

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

HOW CAN WE BALANCE

THE NEED OF THE

INDIVIDUAL WITH THE

NEED OF THE CROWD?

Veronica Cheryl Gomes

Class IX - Mars

In 1943, Abraham Maslow proposed a theory in his paper, 'A Theory

of Human Motivation' which states that humans have five levels of

needs which can be represented as the hierarchy of needs. Although

this is meant to identify with the needs of the human population as a

whole but I believe this is only a rough summary of the necessities of

the exceptionally complex beings known as humans.

Each individual on this earth is different. Each one has different

mindsets, different ways of thinking, different opinions and of course,

different requirements to survive on this earth. Looking around a

crowded room you can never be absolutely sure about what a person

needs in that exact moment. It can be as simple as a hug or as

complicated as a reason to live. Human beings are intricate

individuals, each one with a unique set of skills, goals and beliefs and

that is why it is rather difficult to balance one's specific needs with that

of the crowd.

The human race has a long history of out casting

people who are different from them. That is why

even though people have learned to live by the

boundaries set by the common people, it does

not mean that their needs are being taken care of.

Even though it is the 21st century, people still

have to fight for their rights. Transgender people

are often viewed in a rather negative demeanor

in societies. They are not given proper jobs,

residencies or the respect of a proper human

being. The LGBT community often faces this

kind of discrimination. In many parts of the

world, transgenders struggle to receive

recognition as human beings in the society.

Their need for acceptance and their struggle for

identity is one of the most discussed topics of the

world today. If the needs of the individual have

to be balanced with those of the crowd then the

needs of the transgender people should also be

taken into consideration as they are also human

beings and should be treated as such.

In most South-Asian countries, women are not

given many opportunities to think for

themselves because they are still considered

162


inferior to men. Their needs are often not given any

heed. For example, when a girl is robbed from the

opportunity of a higher education, her need for

knowledge is not being fulfilled. Or when she is

forced to marry early and put a stop to her dreams to

raise a family, her need to accomplish what she wanted

in life remains dissatisfied. Due to many cultural and

religious traditions and rules, the needs of women are

being pushed aside. Female infanticide is also a big

issue in these countries. In India alone, 2000 girl

children are killed every day because daughters are

considered to be undesirable in India's highly

patriarchal society. This is truly appalling. Women

should not be thought as burdens but as blessings to a

family. Daughters should be brought up with the same

values as sons and should be given the same

opportunities. Women should be seen as equals to

men and their needs should be given the same

importance that is given to the needs of men.

Although the South-Asian society has come a long

way, there's still a long way to go. The needs of the

individual and the crowd can only be balanced when

people become more open-minded and less

judgmental. It can only happen when people are

allowed to do what they want to, given it's not

something that would cause serious damage to them

or their surroundings. Society needs to be more

tolerant towards people who are different from them

because God created each human being to be one of

a kind and unique. The needs of the individual can

be balanced with the needs of the crowd only when

everyone's needs are taken care of, which is only

possible when everyone learns to accept and respect

each other in the society and value the differences

present in others.

Jupiter - IX

ARE WE REALLY SO

DIFFERENT?

Sahar Islam

Class IX - Jupiter

All human beings are separate individuals.

All of us are unique in our own way. Our

personality shows the various aspects in our character which

makes us different from others. Each individual has a particular

quality which someone else might not have.

As an individual being, I know my qualities and traits which

separates me from others. I consider myself to be polite, well

behaved, friendly and kind. Someone else might be the exact

opposite of what I believe myself to be.

Majority of the people are humane. They believe in humanity

and cannot bear to tolerate others in pain. The rest are selfish.

Whatever they do they always have an ulterior motive. They are

blinded by the possibility of gaining something in return for

their favours. Among the selfish, few might have shown some

respect for compassion. As the years passed, they experienced

suffering which has made them insensitive today.

From my personal experience, majority of my friends were

selfish whereas two to three of them were loyal to me. I was used

as a shield to protect my "so called friends" from harm. When I

realized what they were, it was too late. They did not need me

anymore, so they stopped all communication with me. They

always had a motive when it came to communicating with me. I was nothing

more than a scapegoat to them, and I was too naive to understand their true

intentions.

Hatred and revenge are two traits which consumes all that is good. When

someone close to us proves to be a traitor, it hurts. That is when the 'betrayed' feel

an inexplicable surge of hatred and revenge towards the traitor. They want to take

every possible measure to hurt the betrayer, to inflict pain so that he/she finds it

hard to recover. Hatred and revenge are two despicable traits which one must

learn to control. Many of us are incapable of controlling the feeling of taking

revenge when someone inflicts pain on us, someone we thought could never hurt

us, someone with whom we shared our secrets. The damage inflicted cannot be

undone.

Sometimes, we are rude to people we don't like. We regard them with extreme

contempt. When they are near us, we chase them away. But they are completely

oblivious as to why we hate them.

They do not know the actual reason, about us hating them, anymore than we do.

When we think about why we hate them, it mostly comes down to their looks or

behavior. Either they are pretty which we don't approve of, or they are the ideal

students whom everyone loves. But the actual reason for hating a person is that

he/she might have some quality which we do not have. This makes us jealous.

We are also ungrateful. When someone helps us or takes good care of us, we are

happy. But when it is our turn to return the favour, we pretend not to know them.

We fail to remember the favour they did to us in our moment of need.

Each human being is an individual in his actions, but basically we are all the same.

This is what make us different from each other. Some of us are controlled by our

instincts whereas others may decide to exercise caution over their feelings. Our

choice makes us different from others. It is entirely up to us whether we want to

let our feelings control us.

Auddithio Nag, Vice President

Green. Environment. Sustainable. Change.

Small words, eh? However, these small words have quite a

profound meaning behind them, and achieving the goals

behind these slogans is one long bridge to cross.

That is why we, at the Green World Earth Club (GWEC),

have strived to accomplish these goals, in small yet

significant steps one at a time. Over the years, GWEC has

been involved in various activities that encourage students to

take part in finding new solutions and putting these into

effect into our daily life. As the Vice

President of GWEC, it is a pleasure to

reflect on the club's works in the past

year.

The last year was an extension of the

success we have had in GWEC. We

began with the 4th Annual General

Meeting that took place on the 26th of

Julian Malcolm

Mendez

GWEC Club Moderator

September. The chief guests included Mr Md. Shahriar

Alam, State Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Syeda Rizwana

Hasan, Executive Director of BELA, among others. The

new executive committee was elected, with Reean Raisa

Abdullah as President and Justin Z. Costa as Secretary

General. This year's theme was 'The Hydrosphere'.

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

One of the first activities of the club

this year was the Nature Photography

Workshop held on the 17th of

December 2015. The Nature Study

Society of Bangladesh encouraged the

participants to respect nature through

the creative pastime of capturing its

many splendors in a frame.

GWEC had also continued its agenda,

in a fairly economic way, during the

Meena Bazaar. On the 16th of

December, Stall #41 was filled with

fresh and wholesome homemade

delights, potted plants including

flowers, chilli and the cacti as well as

some cool T-shirts to spread the

'green' word around.

On Euphrasie Day,

club officials went

from class to class

to engage students

in various

competitions

related to the

environment. A

great list of

achievements was

also earned at the

2nd International

Nature Fest held in Notre Dame College. The best

part was that we got in touch with the famous Green

Man, Matthias Gelber, who was an honorary guest at

the programme.

The GWEC also organized its 4th intra-school Earth

Science Olympiad. The final round took place in the

competitive atmosphere on the 3oth of January

2016.The participants were tested through two

intensive rounds, both oral and written. Winners were

announced, but all of the participants deserve a fair

share of credit for the vast amount of knowledge they

had accumulated in this competition. What made it

even better was that the Green Man had visited our

school on 19 February 2016 and had a great interactive

session regarding the environment which intrigued

the young minds, at the end of which he handed over

198


the crests to the winners of the Olympiad.

This was followed by the Annual Nature Project

Display on the 6th of March 2016. We were

awestruck by the innovative ideas brought up by

the young students to solve various environmental

problems related to water. The most talented of

them took the prizes, but the knowledge gained

was shared by all.

Reflecting on our past serves to guide us for the future. All our activities are

only fruitful if you can continue the legacy of the selfless works we have

done. In the present world, where environmental concerns have spiked up

among all, new challenges have arisen, to renovate our lifestyle to save the

planet. Individually, it's very hard to accomplish them. But together as a club,

as a family, it is possible to bring about a change, for us and our future.

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

Ronald Cruz

Moderator, FX13

Chrome

As I always had this basic idea implanted in my system, let me begin with that, a

quote from Albert Einstein “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become

a man of value.” Best action a man of value would involve is valuable, I believe.

Could it be within himself or in his surroundings? During the process of earning

value he needs to think of his transformation that how “I become we”. Early

notion is the formation and FX13CHROME evolved. From then onwards, in the

ensuing 20 years, it has given birth to some valuable assets in the science arena.

Gently hovering from one time zone to another, it has established not only a

valuable but also a successful legacy. However gorgeous was its past or how much

glory it brought to an individual, it stands united with the common ethics of its

mother, SFX Greenherald International School. Interestingly, it has a blend of

different pupil; but a unique goal. Just aim for it and win it. Kind delivery of time

is not an option here. Length of time is a materialistic issue now when something

so beautiful has already put its root very deep. Many thanks to the Almighty and

those numerous students who pledged their performances to add value to it.

Debate Club

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

General Meeting.

Syed Nazrul Ahsan

Moderator, GDS

It is the year 2016 and Greenherald Debating

Society has successfully held its 16th Annual

This year the focus of GDS was to engage more students in the

debating arena. The students who became the members of this club

were from Class V to A Level. There were a very good number of

events throughout the year. Many of the participants actively

participated in different forms of debating competition. There were

many in-House debate competitions for the new members. GDS

debators also participate in debate competition outside the school.

Debate

Debate is contention in argument; discord, dissension,

quarrelling, controversy; especially a formal discussion

of subjects before a public assembly or parliament, in

Parliament or in any deliberative assembly.

Debate is a method of formally presenting an argument

in a structured manner. Through logical consistency,

factual accuracy and some degree of emotional appeal to

the audience are elements in debating, where one side

often prevails over the other party by presenting a

superior "context" and/or framework of the issue. The

outcome of a debate may depend upon consensus or

some formal way of reaching a resolution, rather than the

objective fact. In a formal debating contest, there are rules

for participants to discuss and decide on differences,

within a framework defining how they will interact.

Debate is argumentative communication among teams.

It improves the skill of a person. It opens windows for

a better understanding. It gives confidence and further

more it improves manner and behavior that is, attitude.

206


Calisthenics

To develop the skills of debate, GDS is organizing and

arranging debating workshop cum classes and events

throughout the year. The programs are planned and

implemented by GDS members along with their spirited team.

ANNUAL REPORT 2015-16

Khaja Arjani Ahamed

Class IX - Mars

The French Club, named 'Club Français

SFX' continued its creative activities is last

academic year from around the middle of

June, at the beginning of the summer

vacation. The club moderators, Ms Teresa

Kakon Corraya and Mr. Taufique Hossain, formally began its

activities that year by selecting the executive members that

would act as the limbs of the club. They were selected from class

VIII, the president being Auddithio Nag, the treasurer Anujit

Saha and the general secretaries Kazi Jawadul Islam and Shaolin

Ahmed from class VII. Other executive members, include

myself, were also selected to form a vital functioning body of the

group while selected French students from class IX were

allocated the posts of advisors. From there we began our

activities in that session of 2015-2016.

Club Français SFX started its first programme with a film show

which was a French movie named 'Le Petit Nicolas' that was

shown to the club members. Our honourable Principal, Sr

Virginia Asha Gomes, Sr Maria Gomes, Sr Gracie M. Gomes Sr.

Jacqueline Gomes and some other teachers enjoyed the show as

well. The duration of the film was almost two hours. At the

onset of the new academic year, we had primarily decided give

out the forms for bringing in more students in the club and

agreed to organized an activity every alternative Wednesday,

although there were certain plans we could not carry out. We

had held a French crossword competition for class IV to class

VII during the beginning of October 2015, which did turn out

to be our first success. Next we conducted a small reading

competition which was segmented in 2 different divisions, one

for the juniors below class VI, and the other for the seniors

below class VIII that went moderately well. That event

concluded our activities for that particular year at the beginning

of November as the exams were drawing near.

The executive team continued their activities in this club from

the first few weeks of the final semester of the last academic

year. It attempted to conduct a small calligraphic art

competition for classes IV and VII within the school campus. It

was decided to let the participants take their time to make their

artwork at home during the Easter holidays which we

implemented afterwards.

Our overall management of the club membership documents

and holding of activities were somewhat sloppy last year, as we

were not so efficient, but we do expect, with optimism, that the

next academic year shall go well with more efficiency and cooperation

of the moderators and support of the administration

as well as with more participation from the general members.

des jeux d’intérieur. J'ai joué tous les deux.

Ensuite, j'ai joué au football et au

badminton. Il y avait un étang pour la

pêche. J'ai pris deux petits poissons. Ensuite, nous avons eu notre snacks

d'après midi je suis allé jouer au billard à nouveau. Ensuite, certains

d'entre nous sommes allés nager à nouveau et je suis aussi allé avec eux.

Enfin, nous sommes rentrés à près de 20 heures. Nous avons eu

beaucoup de plaisir.

MERCY IS AN INVITATION

Sr. Gracie M. Gomes, Senior Section In-Charge

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

Iam glad to pen my reflection

on 'Mercy' as the school has

taken the theme for the year book, 2015-2016-

'MERCY'. A merciful person is sensitive, and full of

compassionate feelings. The word 'mercy' is directly

related to one's inner kindness and respectful behaviour

that he/she inculcates from daily events. It is said,

'Mercy' is an invitation-an invitation to love, kindness,

and infinite generosity. This theory guides us to

encounter the incredible mercy of God that helps us to

transform our life, our relationships, our work, and our

ability to embrace and experience all of life. Pope

Francis said, "Beautiful Mercy provides an encounter

with the heart of God". If we focus on the word 'Mercy',

it immediately inspires us to realize that extraordinary

acts of love are possible for us all-no matter where we

are in life. Receiving mercy and being merciful towards

others are co-related to works of mercy. The works of

mercy are also charitable actions by which we come to

the aid of our neighbors in their hour of need.

This is for students to learn that, there are two types of

'works of mercy' - corporal and spiritual. The following

examples of works of mercy are our daily toils and we all

can be encouraged to practice them in our daily life -

Feed the hungry, Give drink to the thirsty, Visit the sick,

free the captive, Bury the dead, Instruct the ignorant, Counsel the doubtful,

Admonish sinners, Bear wrongs patiently, Forgive offenses willingly, Comfort

the afflicted, Pray for the living and the dead and above all, love one another.

SFX Greenherald School has the 'Charity Club' in which a group of

teachers/staff do a lot of charitable works under the supervision of the Principal

Sr. Virginia Asha Gomes, and myself as the Club Coordinator, along with other

sisters in the school. Of course our parents are giving us a big support to organize

the charitable activities, particularly during the Meena Bazaar. The theme of the

year book 'Mercy' is inviting all our parents, students and teachers to stretch their

helping hands with kind and generous hearts where necessary. I do appreciate

and thank the school

authority for choosing the

meaningful theme -'Mercy'

for the Year Book, 2015-

2016. Let us be merciful

and kind to the people in

our world who are hungry,

thirsty, naked, persecuted,

homeless, lonely, jobless,

afflicted and desperately

need our touch, our love

and concern. May God

Almighty bless our

generosity abundantly.

ENIAC COMPUTER CLUB

As technologies are becoming

modernized, it is our duty to enhance

our knowledge and capabilities to be able to

operate them. The ENIAC Computer Club

takes the responsibility to do so by providing

documentaries, classes, quiz competitions

and assistance. Our job is to provide

interested students with fun events and help

them to understand what the future holds.

Many events have been organized by the

club. Some events were our Annual Digital Expo 2016, Talent Search,

CS Olympiad and many more. In the Annual Digital Expo 2016, many

students have taken part and exhibited their talents through their

projects and presentations. The CS Olympiad and Talent Search were

successful in finding intellectuals and rewarding them. Digital Art

helps children to express their creativity through their drawings. The

club encourages our members to participate in events outside the

school from where they bring glory and honor with their amazing

performances.

In the coming years, the club executives and officers have great new

ideas for a whole new interesting journey. They are hard working and

will continue to work hard to make the activities worthwhile and fun.

The club invites students to take part in this journey and have fun.

Writer’s Club

NOTES FROM THE WRITER’S CLUB

Amreeeta Lethe

Chowdhury

We are made of titanium, we are made of

steel; we are all but poets with our

natures revealed.

The Writer's club is the family which I hold

very close to my heart because its essence lies

in the passion of young souls still fighting for

their place in the world, hearts which have

wept and have felt joy, bones which are brittle

yet mighty. The Writer's Club is the voice of the

new blood, a voice which is often silenced by our

hardened hearts.

I have said it before and I shall reiterate; the club is still in its infancy

but the wheels of progress have been turning and they have been

turning at a pace which was unfathomable when the seeds of its

creation were still being laid; and such progress could have only

been made due to the sincerity and diligence of its members, who

have moved the Heavens and the Earth to inspire the students to dig

deep and polish their craft in order to create what may be the

framework of what may be a modern update of the English lexicon

but more importantly, the Writer's Club is alive in order to breathe

life into the spirit of language which we all cherish.

A best friend is one who would give books above any other gift and

the club intends to be a friend to vagrant minds who seek knowledge

but the club is also a place where students

could help each other enrich their minds;

the club holds competitions for creative

writing and the winners are awarded books

but further down the line perhaps the

activities of the club would also evolve into

a multitude of projects, whether that be

weekly reading of particular books, storytelling

(the art of oration) and even public

speaking.

Taufiq Shariar Khan

Moderator,

Writers Club

As the club grows, the fruits of its labour can only be seen under

close inspection as the views of the students alter and mature

while they find a kinship with each other and the characters whom

they read about. Endless possibilities lie for the club as it traverses

the road not taken, The club aims to educate the minds of those

who wish to learn the power to words, as words are our most

inexhaustible form of magic. The club has preached a vision, a

vision which believes that each soul is capable of crafting mines

of gold with words alone as it preaches 'Excelsior' as we all soar

to new heights of wisdom, of passion and of unwavering courage.

"Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion

moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot."

-D.H. Lawrence

MAGNITUDE OF PAIN

Dr. H.M. Sen Gupta

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

Physics is a quantitative science. This is

because all physical quantities

(extremely small to extremely large) can be measured without

exception and thus a magnitude can be assigned to all the quantities.

An error can also be assigned to the measured value. An error does

not mean any mistake in the measurement. It stands for an

uncertainty in the result and thus makes the numerical value

obtained more meaningful; the smaller the error (the percentage

error, in fact) the more reliable and thus more meaningful will be the

quantity measured.

There are several disciplines in science that are qualitative in nature

and therefore no magnitude i.e. numerical value can be assigned to

them. It has, however, been possible for Physics to contribute to the

relevant parts of these also and thereby develop these science

subjects to make them of great importance. We can quote hydrology,

geophysics, medical physics and biophysics as examples.

Psychology is an important discipline in science. Various matters are

dealt with in Psychology, none of which can have any numerical

value. Pain is one such matter. Mother's death gives pain. Death of

a child, or of a relative or a friend, an accident on the road, failing in

an examination even after hard work, losing a job unwarranted and

so on will give us pain, but certainly not to the same extend. None

of these pains can have a magnitude at all. Thus no numerical figure

can be quoted to state the amount of pain. We can only say a large

amount of pain (or may be, a very large amount of pain), a small

amount of pain (or an extremely small amount of pain) and so on.

In other words, it is only possible to say that one is more painful or

much more painful than another, or less painful or much less painful

and so on. We can never say how much larger or how much smaller.

These clearly mean that it is never possible to give any numerical

value to state the pain and all other terms in Psychology. This is the

very nature, i.e. the important characteristic feature of Psychology.

Psychology is certainly an important discipline in science.

There is a well known story related to the measurement of

magnitude to pain. I do not know how far this is true. The story is

as follows:

Several Psychologists went to Physicists to discuss if it is possible

to do an experiment on the measurement of pain in a laboratory and

thus assign a magnitude to it. An experiment was designed after a

detailed discussion.

As required in the experiment, several persons (both male and

female) of different age group and different body structure (some

lean and thin, some bulky, some short, some tall) were chosen on

whom the experiment was to be carried out. The experiment is

started below.

In a dark room there will be an wooden chair. On it all the chosen

people, as above, will sit one after another holding a pair of

236


conducting rods (metal rods), one in each hand, between

which an electric voltage will be applied. The voltage will

be increased step by step starting from zero and displayed

in red on the wall in front. The purpose was to see how

much electric shock each one can withstand and whether

the minimum voltage giving a shock has any correlation

with the factors mentioned above. (namely, gender, age

and body structure). Each person on whom the

experiment was to be carried out was warned to keep in

mind that the voltage will be increased and thus to take

care not taking any risk.

Everyone at one voltage or another was found to drop the

metal rods, saying, "I cannot tolerate any more." But no

voltage was applied at all; yet everyone received an

'electric shock'! The fictitious 'shocking voltage", as

displayed on the wall, was furthermore found not to have

any correlation with the factors as mentioned above.

The conclusion one can arrive at from the experiment is

that no numerical value can be assigned to a

Psychological quantity, pain in the present case. By its

very nature, Psychology is a qualitative science. The

some statement can be made about other science subjects

that are qualitative by nature. We should not undermine

these science subjects. These are of no less importance to

science and to the society.

A Dream to Come True

Composed by Sabir Hossain

25 Years Journey of

Sister Gracie RNDM

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

As the time passes, anxieties and fear in the mind,

Grow stronger realising the scenario we left behind,

A place where our souls can have peace and rest,

A different world, that we dream and is the best,

Where the roses bloom the whole year,

Where the peace flows like a river without fear,

Where the mountains speak to the blue sky,

Where the birds of multicolor wings cheerfully fly,

Where the valleys grow abundant crops,

Where the flowers smile on the shining due drops,

where the sunrise is silver and sunset is gold,

Where the people are honest , courageous and bold,

Where the streams sing melodious song,

A kingdom where nothing goes wrong,

There O, Lord. I want to live with you,

Day and night I pray for my dream to come true.

The darkness you dreamt

when you were a child,

Thoughts were tender scattered

and were mild.

Determination to change darkness into light,

Composed by

you were nervous, you struggled

Sabir Hossain

And you had to fight.

You bid good bye to your comfort,

your home and all that you own

For the new life a new path which was shown,

To find a new kingdom, to achieve a special goal

As lord wanted you to play an important role.

Without fear you kept walking on and on,

Though you were tired, you were sick but you did not mourn.

Facing problems, pains and unbearable agony of your soul,

Eventually after 25 years journey your train

stationed at the desired pole.

Your journey does not have any end,

The angles will take you to a new trend.

Lord from heaven will help you to be crowned,

To be a ruler where honesty, justice and peace will be found.

May you enlighten the hearts of the whole nation,

New generation will find their final destination.

IMPROVING SELF-ESTEEM

Dipak H. Gomes (Student Counsellor)

Self-esteem can be defined as a positive feeling

and respect for oneself. It is essentially a

measure of self-worth and importance.

Self-esteem is an important part of one's personality that has been shaped

from very early years. During childhood, if a person's feelings are

respected, thoughts valued, and abilities recognized, the child's selfesteem

gets strengthened. When feelings are trampled upon ("I don't care

about what you think/want"), thoughts belittled ( " What a lousy idea"),

and abilities criticized (" You can never do anything correctly"), the child's

self-esteem remains at a low point of development and is therefore weak.

During the course of time, a person faces many life situations. Depending

upon the success or failure and one's reaction to every significant situation

in life, self-esteem either grows stronger or gets considerably weakened.

A person with a strong self-esteem is able to act towards others in nonthreatening

ways, builds healthy relationships and finds himself

successful. He is confident, dynamic, appreciative, achievement oriented,

contented, and open to change.

Confident

A person with a strong self-esteem knows his strengths and feels secure in

accepting his limitations. He is able to place a lot of confidence in himself

and his ability to handle problems.

Goal-oriented

His goals are always appropriate and realistic. When he sets his

mind on a goal, he is willing to give a lot of himself to achieve

it. He is ready to make efforts, for he knows nothing comes

without the sweat of the brow.

Appreciative

This person feels positively about others. A person who feels

happy and good about himself, can make others feel good about

themselves too. He is able to acknowledge the good in others.

His qualities help him in establishing meaningful relationships.

Contented

This person is able to accept himself with his limitations and

weaknesses while being aware of his assets and strengths. He

looks into the future and sees what he has and can do.

SFXGHIS YEARBOOK 2015-2016

A person with a weak self-esteem has a negative self-image

and poor self-concept. These come in the way of his ability

to build relationships, and to be successful. He is critical,

self-centred, cynical and diffident.

Self-centered

The person gives importance only to his own feelings, likes and

dislikes. He is not willing to consider the feelings and needs of

others. This self-centredness alienates him from others.

Critical

The critical person makes negative judgments about others'

behavior in order to cover up his own mistakes. Nothing seems

to satisfy his expectations and minor slips are singled out for

severe condemnation.

Cynical

The cynical person firmly believes that everyone is unjust: he is

ready to believe the worst of others. He carries a huge load of

past resentments based on real or imagined injustices. He

misinterprets others' thoughts and actions and makes himself

and others miserable.

Diffident

The diffident person starts thinking that nobody cares about

him. He suffers from feelings of self-doubt and insecurity. He

sees even small failures as proof of his inadequacy. Even if he has

abilities, he fails to utilize them because he is convinced that he will fail.

Improving Self-esteem

Self-esteem is a quality that can be strengthened at any point in life

regardless of age, education background and social standing. Building

up one's self-esteem is a slow process requiring patience and

perseverance.

Some basic tips to help you in strengthening your weak self-esteem,

which are practical and easy to follow:

Give positive strokes generously

Appreciation in the form of words (compliments), facial expression(a

smile), or gesture (a pat), are termed as positive strokes. Positive strokes

help in strengthening the self-esteem of the recipient as well as the giver.

Giving positive strokes is a healthy exercise which calls for recognition

of worth in other people. When we treat others with dignity, respect and

love, our own self-esteem automatically grows stronger.

In this mechanical world, we are so caught up with life and living, that

we take many things for granted. If we could only pause for a minute

and show our appreciation, the world would indeed be a better place to

live in.
