04.11.16 : CLASS XI The Canterville Ghost

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and silence to listen. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.”

- Oscar Wilde (The Canterville Ghost)

The Canterville Ghost (novel) written by Oscar Wilde is a parody featuring a dramatic spirit, Sir Simon and the Otis family living in the Canterville Chase. It is a ghost story with an inverted plot wherein the ghost instead of scaring the family gets scared himself. Oscar Wilde’s genius is visible in how he has skillfully brought the theme of love being stronger than death and life, to the fore.

Students of all sections of class XI conducted a special assembly on this novel from 27th October, 2016 - 4th November, 2016. They enthusiastically took up the entire work right from writing the script to producing it along with finalizing costumes, making boards, preparing a presentation for the backdrop, using props, etc. on themselves.

Their hard work paid off well as the assembly was a huge success. The audience was enthralled by the students’ performance. Students exhibited laudable traits like teamwork, passion and dedication. This activity not only helped them explore their talents but also helped them understand the novel thoroughly.

Oscar Wilde’s intended message of love being the strongest of all was beautifully portrayed in the assembly.





28.10.16: CLASS VI SPECIAL ASSEMBLY

‘Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen, Voices whisper in the trees, "Tonight is Halloween!’

- Dexter Kozen

Halloween has its roots in the ancient, pre-Christian Celtic festival of Samhainor "End of Summer”, which is celebrated on the night of October 31. The Celts believed that on this harvest festival the dead revisit the land of the living and that communal fire was needed to ward off all evil. Halloween comes from All Hallow Even, the eve (night before) of All Hallows day. Therefore, Halloween is the eve of All Saints Day.

A special assembly was conducted by the Students of Class VI Bof Queen’s Valley School on the 28th October, 2016 on the occasion of Halloween. Witches, Zombies, Ghosts and Ghouls were seen in the corridors of Queen’s Valley School. The audience was thrilled to see them walking on the stage in their scary and dreadful attire. The horrifying spirits singing and dancing on stage made the audience shiver.

After a captivating performance, the students imparted a powerful message to the audience- 'The Lord is my light and the one who saves me. I'm not afraid of anyone’, left them spellbound.





26.10.16: Inter-Class Gymnastics Competition

“Everything is about your movements and precisions and timings, which is what gymnastics is about.”

- Shawn Johnson

Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring physical strength, flexibility, agility, coordination and balance. Participation in gymnastics helps children become physically active, stay fit and healthy. Attaining success at gymnastics teaches the student self-confidence and boosts self-esteem. Gymnastics helps students learn new skills by engaging the mind and body.

The Gymnastics Academy of Boston also believes that gymnastics gives children an opportunity to learn social skills like listening, following directions, taking turns, being quiet and respecting others. The challenging nature of gymnastics requires commitment and concentration. The structure of gymnastic lessons teaches children how hard work and dedication pay off. Keeping this in mind QVS organized an Inter-Class Gymnastics competition on 26.10.2016 in the school premises ensuring maximum participation and mesmerizing performances by the flexible queens of the school. The young gymnasts warmed up the stage with floor exercises, cart wheels, routines on the balancing beam and trampoline and rhythmic gymnastics. The audience was left spell bound as they witnessed a variety of difficult exercises.

The competition was successfully organised and it gave our young athletes a great platform to exhibit their talent and hard work. They successfully proved that gymnastics helps children build a range of motor and coordination skills. Whether it is recreational gymnastics or competitive, skills learnt in gymnastics can benefit a child's overall development.

28.09.16 : Class III-C Special Assembly Report

At Queen’s Valley, we believe that the school assembly is one of the most essential aspects of a school's curriculum. It powerfully nurtures the development of intrapersonal intelligence. It demonstrates the value of each individual pupil including their individual thoughts and abilities and provides each child with an opportunity to share the stage and gain confidence.

A Special Assembly of class III-C wasorganized on 28th September 2016 on the topic “Honesty & Truthfulness”.

Values are personal qualities that each individual should poses in order to live harmoniously with others in a community. One important value that is essential in our day to day life is honesty. In essence, honesty and truthfulness always uphold integrity even when challenged otherwise. In life, there is always a way to be honest.

The students of III-C were dressed according to their roles. The students began the day by reciting the school prayer which was followed by the English & Hindi thoughts, English News, GK facts and Jokes also comprised a part of the assembly. Thereafter, the students dramatized a short skit on the same topic wherein they enactedvarious roles.

The Queens delivered their dialogues with great poise and perfection. It was a well conducted assembly and the queens gave the message that honesty and truthfulness are always rewarded.The assembly proved a good way to showcase their talent. Our queens looked beautiful in their eye catching costumes. Each one of them enjoyed their role. The sense of accomplishment was evident in each one of them as they mesmerized the audience with their speech and expression. Their performance was felicitated through a big round of applause by the audience.

The special assembly proved to be a great success and left a smile on everyone’s face.

21.09.16: CLASS III-V Inter Class Table Tennis Competition

“Learn from your defeat and you’ll be a winner.”

Education without sport is incomplete. The significance of sports in a child’s life cannot be overlooked. It facilitates the development of a child’s mind and body. It fosters team spirit, discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, sacrifice, accountability and encourages the development of social skills.

Practising sport also helps the child to become increasingly autonomous and attain higher self-esteem. It instills confidence to resolve problems and face challenges.

Table tennis is a fun-filled physical activity, which is easy to play but difficult to master. Table Tennis improves hand eye-co-ordination and stimulate mental alertness, concentration and tactical strategy.

Keeping this in mind, Queen’s Valley School organized an Inter-class Table Tennis Competition for classes 3-5. The competition was conducted on 21st September 2016. The queens participated with great zeal and enthusiasm. They maintained the sportsmanship spirit throughout the game.

31st August, 2016 CLASS X : Democracy and Corruption (Debate Competition)

Is corruption the greatest challenge for democracy?
“It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.”

The beauty of democracy is that it crafts a space for discussions, deliberations and debating to reach a consensus. The enlightened philosophers encouraged questioning and debating before accepting the hearsay, to help one reach a logical and rational conclusion over an issue.The process of debating or questioning starts when a child begins to speak and continues for the rest of her/his life. Unfortunately, at times this innate quality is not utilized to the fullest; as a huge mass just believes blindly in the words of others’ without introspecting or pondering over it.Hence, they do not have their own opinion or views.

We live in the age of information where knowledge is powerand debate is all about how to turn knowledge into power.It provides students with the opportunity to research a topic, work as a team, practice public speaking skills, and use critical thinking skills.The debate is one of the academic activities that give students creative room to express what they feel and think.

At QVS we believe in the holistic development of a child and what better than a platform where they can express their views on the given topic. On 31st August, 2016 the school organised a debate competition over the topic ‘Democracy and Corruption’ for Class X. The Queens presented their perspectives; their arguments engrossed the audience completely. They put their best foot forward and indulged in competitive eloquence. The competition was a perfect medium for the students to improve their personal expression and social-interaction skills. It gave them a chance to feel proud of their abilities to debate in public and become better critical thinkers and communicators.Overall, it was an enthralling experience for the participants, students and teachers. The competition helped the students to improve their public speaking skills and gave room to their expression of thoughts.

The results are:
Name Class Position
Ishika Budhiraja X C First Position
Ananya Gaur X B Second Position
Nupur Singh X A Second position
Shruti Rana X A Third Position
Sanskruti Jagga X B Third Position






29.08.16: Report on Roleplay: Social and Religious Reformers

Human greed for power, authority and superiority has led to exploitative practices being adopted in different parts of the world. The so- called higher caste people would exploit the so- called lower caste persons; a white would exploit a black; follower of one religion would like to downgrade other religions and males would tend to dominate females. These discriminatory and exploitative practices take the form of social evils in the long run and become a scar on the face of any civilized society. Every country, in its history of evolution, has had numerous bright individuals who have lived and worked for the progress and upliftment of the downtrodden in the society; and due to their efforts, it became possible to abolish several extreme social evils such as racism, sati pratha etc.

The commendable work done by the great social and religious reformers of the world needs to be appreciated and thanked by all. And what better way than to let children emulate these famous and extraordinary men and women who, through their enlightened thinking and consistent efforts, have made this earth a better place to live in.

With this view in mind, the school organisedan inter- class ‘Roleplay competition on Social and Religious Reformers’ for students of class 7 on 29th August 2016.

Students did an excellent job, dressed up in perfect costumes, in order to resemble and speak out the ideologies of Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, Anne Besant, Sarojini Naidu, Vinoba Behave, Martin Luther and Baba Amte.

The student audience had a great time cheering for their favourites and also guessing the winners in the end. It was a great learning opportunity for all present.

The results are:
NAME CLASS-SECTION POSITION
Naina Sehrawat VII C First Position
Prajna Gon VII E Second Position

26.08.16: Report On Judo Zonals

Life is an unpredictable gift. Nothing feels better than knowing you can take care of yourself while facing unexpected situations. Being able to protect yourself in all situations is a confidence booster as much as it is a reassurance, a reassurance that can only be gained through the knowledge of self-defence.

Judo is more than knowing how to fight back against a physical attack. It not only develops your awareness and skills of assertion but it also enables you to deal with your fears and feel more empowered in life.

It was a matter of honour for Queen’s Valley School to host the prestigious tournament of Judo Zonals for Zone 21on 26th August, 2016. The Director of Education, Mr. Devinder Singh, was the Chief Guest for the day. He addressed the gathering with a few words so as to infuse the fervour of the moment into the young minds of the sport stars.The event was also attended by eminent dignitaries like the Zone SP, Ms. Roshni Gulati, the Zone Secretary Mr. NL Meena and the Zone Committee Member, Mr. Rakesh. Mr. Ravinder Dahiya, a revered member of the Judo Federation of India, who has refereed countless sports events at international level, was the referee of this tournament too.

For the opening ceremony, the queens of our school amplified the energy with their back to back dynamic performance on rhythmic beats demonstrating yoga, gymnastics and judo.

The QVS Judo Nationalists, namely, Niharika Negi, Manini Singh, Prachi, Nancy and Kanchan Bist, who have clinched various medals at different tournaments, were also commended for their hard work and efforts. With the meet declared open, the participants seeked the blessings of their trainers and coaches and fearlessly stepped forward to display their prowess in the field of Judo. They showcased the best of their abilities and proved that this skilful martial art form produces advantages far beyond the winning of glittering trophies.





26.08.16: CLASS VI INTER CLASS, INTERNATIONAL FOOD FRENZY COMPETITION

There is no love sincerer than the love of food
- George Bernard Shaw

Food is an essential part of international travel and anyone who passes from one country to another but only eats at the recognizable joints is definitely missing out on an important cultural experience. It is over a meal that we truly get to know the people who live in a country.Only by eating at that particular place we experience authentic flavours that are masked in the tourist areas of a country or a city. Friendships and business relationships are created over communal meals.

Queen's Valley School organized an Inter‐Class “INTERNATIONAL FOOD FRENZY” competitionfor all the students of class VI on 26THth AUGUST‘16 as a part of SOCIAL SCIENCE month.

Each section of class VI was given the task of preparing cuisines from a country that they had been allotted.

Students participated with great zeal and vigour which was quite evident in their presentation as they not only prepared the cuisines but also they performed on the traditional dance of their respective country and some of them even recited poems. The event not only gave them a chance to show their talent but also enabled them to know more about the various aspects of the countries all over the world. The creations of our queens was highly appreciated.

The winners are:
COUNTRY REPRESENTED CLASS & SECTION POSITION
Brazil VI F First Position

ENACT A MONUMENT

Monuments are a symbol of a significant time in history. Monuments represent life, death, success, and struggle. They have become as important to society as the events they represent. They bring history alive to new generations and memories to those who experience them firsthand. Monuments create a bridge between generations. Monuments bring to the forefront, the elegance and splendour of the bygone era.

Freedom in the mind, faith in the words, pride in our souls. Let’s salute the nation on this auspicious day.

Independence Day celebrations at Queen’s Valley School were colourful and high on spirits as the students of Classes IX and X showcased a rhythmic and patriotic show on the theme – ‘An Ode to National Anthem’ on 10th August, 2016.

The entire school joined their hands celebrated the completion of 70 years of India’s hard attained independence. The celebration was presided over by our revered Chairman, Mr. S.K. Sachdeva and the other prestigious members of the Managing Committee.

To commemorate the sovereignty of our nation, Chairman Sir unfurled the symbol of our national pride, our flag.The beautiful spectacle of the fluttering flag conjured patriotic emotions among the spectators and gave them an opportunity to salute the heroic sacrifices of our freedom fighters with a hopeful heart and a smile that yearns for a better tomorrow.

After the flag hoisting ceremony, our Chairman addressed the gathering so as to infuse the fervour of the moment into the young minds of the student body. He conveyed the real motive behind celebration of such festivals and made us understand the importance of freedom and its essence in life.

The crescendo of patriotic fervour was initiated on a beatific note as the queens joined their hands in humble prayer to the Almighty. Following it was a musical ballad on the theme ‘An Ode to National Anthem’ that was showcased through an aesthetic blend of music and dance performances. Our national anthem ‘Jan Gan Man’, which has been saluted by billions of people for many years, was written by Rabindranath Tagoreas a tribute to the unique diversity in India. It symbolises the unflinching loyalty to our nation despite its various ethnicities. Our queens succeeded in vibrantly showcasing this diversity and displaying the very essence of the different cultures of India, namely Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali etc.

Each member of the audience could feel the dynamic aura of those unheard words of the anthem. The loud and heartfelt applause marked the success of the day's event.

The honoured dignitaries released balloons to mark the release of age old chains and symbolise prosperity, progress and betterment of the nation.

The competition was held among the class VIII students on 8th of August 2016. We were amazed to see the way the queens performed.

29.07.16: CLASS VI-XII Inter Class Yoga Competition

“Yoga adds years to your life and life to your years.”
- Alan Finger

As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says, “Health is not a mere absence of disease. It is a dynamic expression of life – in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are.” A person is healthy when he/ she is not just physically fit but also mentally and emotionally balanced. Yoga helps us to unite with our body, mind and breath. It brings us in harmony with our inner self and helps us to lead a happier, calming and more fulfilling life.

A regular practice of yoga helps to relieve stress, boosts immunity and improves concentration. It increases flexibility and gives a better posture. A calm and relaxed mind helps us to cope with stressful situations by taking right decisions. It regulates adrenal glands and increases blood flow to all the organs of the body. A composed mind helps to develop stronger bonds with family and friends. It helps us to choose a healthy lifestyle and makes us a good human in the long run.

Realizing the importance of yoga in our daily life and to develop a habit among our students to practice yoga everyday, Queen’s Valley School organised a yoga competition for the students of classes III – XI. A prelim round was taken and the students were tested on the basis of their front bending, back bending and balance. The best student from each class was chosen for the final round. The final round took place on 26 July 2016 for classes VI - XI and on 29 July 2016 for classes III – V. The students who performed paschimottanasana, dhanurasana and chakrasana with proper posture and maximum flexibility along with good balance were declared as winners.

28.07. 16: विशेष प्रार्थना सभा

विषय - विश्व प्रकृति संरक्षण दिवस कक्षा - सातवीं ‘अ’
प्रकृति का न करें हरण, आओ बचाएँ पर्यावरण|

वर्तमान में कई प्रजातियाँ, जीव-जन्तु और वनस्पतियाँ विलुप्त होने की कगार पर हैं| इन्हीं विलुप्त होते जीव-जन्तुओं और वनस्पतियों के संरक्षण के उद्देश्य से विश्व प्रकृति संरक्षण दिवस (WORLD NATURE CONSERVATION DAY) की संकल्पना की गई थी|

‘पर्यावरण’ शब्द ‘परि+ आवरण’ से बना है, जिसके अन्तर्गत वायु, जल, भूमि, पेड-पौधे, जीव-जन्तु, मानव व उसकी विविध गतिविधियों के परिणाम आदि सभी का समावेश होता है| विज्ञान के क्षेत्र में असीमित प्रगति तथा नए आविष्कारों की स्पर्धा के कारण आज का मानव प्रकृति पर पूर्णतया विजय प्राप्त करना चाहता है| इस कारण प्रकृति का संतुलन बिगड रहा है| औद्योगिकीकरण और शहरीकरण के कारण प्रकृति का लगातार दोहन हो रहा है| अतः इस पर्यावरण दोहन के कुछ दूरगामी दुष्प्रभाव है, जो अत्यन्त घातक है| स्वच्छ वातावरण, एक शांतिपूर्ण व स्वस्थ जीवन जीने के लिए बहुत आवश्यक है| पर्यावरण के संरक्षण से ही धरती पर जीवन का संरक्षण हो सकता है| इसी बात को ध्यान में रखते हुए विश्व प्रकृति संरक्षण दिवस के उपलक्ष्य पर ‘क्वींस वैली विद्यालय’ के प्रांगण में विशेष प्रार्थना सभा का आयोजन ‘कक्षा- सातवीं अ’ की छात्राओं के द्वारा किया गया| छात्राओं ने एक लघु नाट्यांश के माध्यम से प्रकृति दोहन व प्रकृति संरक्षण के ऊपर प्रकाश डाला| छात्राओं ने ‘पञ्चमहाभूतम्’ गीत पर नृत्य प्रस्तुत करते हुए अपने कार्यक्रम का शुभारम्भ किया| छात्राओं ने नाट्यांश के माध्यम से सबको इस विचार हेतु विवश कर दिया कि यदि प्रकृति का संरक्षण नहीं किया गया तो मंगल ग्रह आदि ग्रहों की तरह धरती का जीवन चक्र भी एक दिन समाप्त हो जाएगा| भावाभिव्यक्ति तथा भाषाभिव्यक्ति के माध्यम से छात्राओं ने इस बात पर भी प्रकाश डाला कि प्रकृति संरक्षण के लिए जन भागीदारी अत्यन्त आवश्यक है| पर्यावरण संबंधी एक गीत पर नृत्य प्रस्तुत करके इस कार्यक्रम का समापन किया गया|

अंत में निष्कर्ष स्वरूप यही कहा जा सकता है कि प्रकृति के संरक्षण के माध्यम से पर्यावरण को बचाया जा सकता है| अगर हमें पर्यावरण की गुणवत्ता में सुधार लाना है तो केवल एक ही उपाय है, सबको सम्मिलित करना|

महात्मा गाँधी ने भी कहा है “पृथ्वी सभी मनुष्यों की ज़रुरत पूरी करने के लिए पर्याप्त संसाधन प्रदान करती है, लालच पूरा करने के लिए नहीं|”

पर्यावरण का रखे ध्यान, तभी बनेगा देश महान|





28.07.16: CLASS IX, PAMPHLET MAKING ON “HEALTHY LIVING”

“A happy mind is a healthy mind, and a healthy mind
is good for the body.”
– Dalai Lama

Good health is true wealth. Good health is not just the absence of diseases, but involves healthy lifestyle, healthy mental attitude, and healthy ways of relating to all living beings and nature. But healthy living ways are harder to develop, though easier to live with. Inculcating healthy ways in our students has been a continuous effort at Queens Valley.

So, we at QVS, organized a ‘Pamphlet Making Competition’ for all the students of class IX on 28th July' 16 as a part of Science and Technology month. The students participated enthusiastically in this competition. The aim of this competition was to develop awareness about healthy habits and ways of living among our students.

25.07.16 : MIND OVER MATTER-SCIENCE QUIZ COMPETITION

"I love anything quiz related”

- Natasha Hamilton

A quiz is a form of game or mind sport in which the players (as individuals or in teams) attempt to answer questions correctly. The quizzes evaluate the knowledge, understanding and mental skills of the students irrespective of their ability to express it. In this way the assessment by quizzes is likely to represent the knowledge and understanding of participants in the subject covered by quiz more accurately. Because of large number of question included in the quiz, the performance of participants is less dependent on the probability of question on specific topics. Large number of question in quizzes ensure that the question cover more topics.

Keeping all this in mind, QVS held a science quiz competition-Mind over Matter for class IV. The aim of the competition was to test the knowledge of the students related to science and create more interest for the same. The preliminary round of the competition was held on 15 July 2016. Students selected after the preliminary round took part in the final round on 25 July 2016. The final round had four rounds- identification, rapid fire, MCQ’s and True or False round.

All the participants who took part put their best foot forward. Our Queens participated with great zeal. It was a learning experience for the participants as well as for the audience. The audience too appreciated the efforts of our queens. At the end the winners were announced as mentioned below-

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

“Science is taught to provide training in and knowledge of Scientific method, which is useful in the life pursuits. So this needs a School base of Science education”. Prof. H.E. Armstrong

Visionaries know the power of perspective. Perspective changes everything. What we feel or think about something can dissolve or flip the other way round just by changing perspective. They are the ones who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fear to understand things that clash with customs, privileges or beliefs. New ideas grow in the minds of children. Exhibitions are opportunities where ideas will begin to bloom for the development of the world.

14.07.16 : CLASS VII Inter Class – SCIENCE CONSPETUS: Summarization Competition

Summarisation is a performing art, an outlet for self-expression, and a way of learning. It is an effective learning tool because it involves the student intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. It helps to develop the creative potential in the participants and develops critical thinking skills. It provides students with an outlet for emotions, thoughts, and dreams that they might not otherwise have means to express. A student can, if only for a few moments, become another, explore a new role, try out and experiment with various personal choices and solutions to very real problems-problems from their own life, or problems faced by characters in literature or historical figures.

“Science is the poetry of reality.”
Anonymous

As part of the same goal to infuse minds of pupils with the practical dimension of the learning process, an Inter class – SCIENCE CONSPECTUS :Summarisation competition was organised for class VII on 14 JULY, 2016. Each class had to summarize the science chapter ‘Fibre to Fabric’. They learnt from each other through discussions and observation of each other’s performances. In the summarization, they used different props, which made it creative and captivating.The winners were selected through a gruelling process of judgement and were judged on the basis of content, stage presence, diction, intonation and props. The students performed with utmost zeal, and it proved to be a learning experience for them. It was an excellent display of talent and creativity. We hope that the contribution, sensitization, enthusiasm and awareness generated by our queens would encourage others in developing a scientific temperament as well. The children enjoy summarizing a topic using their gestures and body movements. This gave them a platform wherein they learn the lesson during the class without getting bored.

13.07.16 : WORKSHOP ON SMART VOCABULARY: MENMONIC USAGE AND FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH

One forgets words as one forgets names. One's vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die.
- Evelyn Waugh

Human memory, in its limited ephemeral state, allows for the retention and storage of only limited vocabulary concepts, the ones which get processed over a period of time through usage and modification. In such a competitive scenario wherein deliverance of sophisticated vocabulary has become not just a norm but also a prerequisite for survival, it is significant to introduce innovative techniques of language learning. The contemporary times require not the application of gargantuan idioms to fabricate intelligence but the employment of interesting methods and techniques to incorporate meaningful vocabulary usage located beyond the limitations of prescriptive language teaching and learning.

To enable students to imbibe eloquent, yet simplified vocabulary in their regular language usage, Queen’s Valley School organized a WOWCABULARY building workshop by Ms. Neha Wahi, certified behavioural trainer and specialist in Linguistics, Psychology, people and processes. The event took place on July 13 2016 in the Cultural Hall wherein a variety of innovative techniques were employed by the resource person to equip students to learn language through use of mnemonics, audio- visual support aid, hinglish and etymology.Mnemonics is a linguistic system such as a pattern of letters, ideas, or associations which assists in memory retention of useful terms and concepts.

The students participated enthusiastically and understood the significance of manifesting effective oratory skills through simply drawing the practical ingredient from the field of entertainment. The workshop helped them to look at language learning differently and reasserted the importance of effective language usage as a preparation into the larger urban world.

JUNE: TEACHERS’ WORKSHOP

Good teachers form the foundation of good schools and improving teachers’ skills and knowledge is one of the most important investments of time. It is vital for a teacher to improve her teaching skills so that children can learn and comprehend the concepts in the utmost clear and interesting way. To facilitate this goal, the faculty of Queen’s Valley School attended a series of workshops for development of its teachers on a both personal and professional level.

Personality Development by Promise
The first workshop was held on 20th June’16 by Mr. Kamalneet Singh, a soft skills trainer with Promise. The aim of the workshop was to help teachers incorporate a positive attitude in their daily lives for effective stress management. He laid emphasis on the motto- ‘People who SMILE tend to teach, manage, and sell better’ in order to tackle unpleasantness in a more positive and productive way.

The Art of Story Telling by Kathashala
For centuries story-telling has been used as a powerful communication vehicle. It is also useful in nursing education to enhance self-esteem, develop critical thinking, model behaviour and to teach cultural sensitivity and communication skills. In order to teach how a simple story can be used as a teaching-learning tool to make complex concepts simple, a story-telling workshop for teachers was organized on 21st June, 2016. It was conducted by Ms. Simi Srivastava, Founder Director and a story-teller from ‘Kathashala.’ The teachers were tutored to narrate stories with proper voice modulation, facial expressions and gestures.

Voice and Accent Training
Voice training aims to create an optimal and healthy voice for broadcasting, singing, acting and speaking. In spite of significant strides made by technology, our voice continues to remain the primary tool of communication. To hone the teachers’ communication skills, an interactive four day training workshop for the teachers from 22nd June-25th June, 2016 was organised. It was held by Ms. Anubha Sehgal, a renowned voice and accent trainer who focussed on speech clarity, enhanced vocal dynamics and expressiveness and effective articulation. She also stressed on the need for teachers to continuously strive to improve their vocal energy, voice quality, texture and tone.

Theatre Workshop
Learning is multi-sensory. It means that the involvement of more number of senses does not just result in better assimilation of knowledge but improves retention as well. Keeping the same in mind, a two-day workshop (23rd June-24th June, 2016) on performing arts was delivered by Mr. Hemant, a skilled theatre professional. His aim was to stimulate the creative impulses of the teachers through various theatre activities. The workshop focused upon the fact that when the teachers dramatise or emote and also involve students in role plays, it invigorates the students, thereby producing better learning outcomes. The teachers also learnt to utilise basic theatrical elements like theme, plot, spectacle and character in their teaching curriculum.

Female Health Awareness
In the present scenario, due to the stress of juggling a home and career, women are facing a lot of difficulties associated with their health. Lack of proper physical workouts and intake of unhealthy food are the prime reasons for the drastic deterioration of their health. On 27th June, 2016, Dr. (Maj) HarshitaSurange, a qualified Radiologist and Ultrasonologist, visited QVS to impart her expertise on female health awareness for a lifetime of wellness. In her session, Dr. Surange stressed on the need to adopt a healthy lifestyle to prevent the feeling of helplessness against potentially deadly diseases such as cancer. She also advocated the need for regular vaccinations and advised the faculty to maintain personal hygiene to combat fatal viruses.

Professional and Personal Development by Times NIE
It is imperative for a professional to enhance and groom one’s outer and inner self to bring about a positive change to his/her life. Each individual has a distinct persona that can be developed, polished and refined. Thus, to help the teachers reach the pinnacle of success by being the best version of themselves, a workshop on ‘Personality Development’ was organized. The resource person, Ms. Shoma Guha, a trainer with Times NIE, shared various valuable tips that teachers must embrace in order to maximize their potential.

Workshop on Behavioural Problems among Students
A workshop on behavioral problems among students was taken up by Ira Sehgal, a renowned counsellor with NIE on 30 June, 2016. With changing times, behavioural issues have become very common among the students today. Telling lies, playing the blame game, being emotionally weak, intolerant, aggressive and argumentative and using derogatory language are only a few to name. Some important tips were shared to tackle the students tactfully without losing their confidence. Special emphasis was laid on teaching the students to cope with conflicts in their lives and to increase their productivity by leading them towards the right direction as the children of today will be the future of the country tomorrow.

Books & Beyond- QVS Book Talk
Books are a man’s best friend .They enlighten us and remove darkness of ignorance. Ralph Waldo Emerson rightly said that if we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads. QVS organized a ‘Book Talk’ for its faculty members, spanning from 20th June- 29thJune, 2016. The teachers were encouraged to read books of their choice during the vacation with the point of view of reviewing it among their fellow teachers, post vacation. Our teachers turned up with reviews on books which were followed by a healthy discussion and appreciation. The genres ranged from biographies to fiction, paranormal to spiritual and mystery to romance. This exercise turned out to be a big source of dissemination of knowledge and encouragement to develop the habit of reading within us.

Teaching Demonstrations
It is important for a teacher to continue to gather knowledge and keep a scope for improvement. It should be our personal focus as committed professionals. So, in order to enrich the teaching skills of the faculty, the school conducted a series of teaching demonstrations from 20th June- 30thJune, 2016, wherein the teachers got a chance to witness different teaching methodologies in the form of creative and innovative sessions and demonstrations. It also gave them a chance to experience classroom teaching from the other side of the table, as a result, giving way to constructive feedback and an opportunity to foster growth.





21.06.16 : INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY

Yoga is a vision for a harmonious future for humanity.
- PM NarendraModi

21stJune 2016: Yoga is a holistic way of life that integrates the body, mind and soul. Along with the series of effective postures and breathing techniques, the art of yoga puts emphasis on the inner experience of meditation for the well-being of mind and other hidden elements of human existence. As a result of this, the journey through life becomes calmer, happier and fulfilling.

On the occasion of International Yoga Day,the personnel and students of Queen’s Valley School were enthralled with the unique opportunity to enhance their existing yoga training with a procedural understanding of the asanas as an integral part of an organization’s daily activities. Deriving motivation from the initiative taken by the honourable Prime Minister of India, the institution aimed at inculcating structured and systematic techniques to understand and effectively practice Yoga asanas in order to lead a physically, mentally and psychologically healthy life.

The benefits of practicing yoga and its significance in the personal and professional growth of teacherswere discussed at length.

12.05.16: Inter House Badminton Tournament (VI-XII)

“Success is where preparation and opportunity meet.”

Sports are very important in everyone’s life as they inculcate pleasure, health, discipline, happiness, self-control and sporting spirit in learners. Through sports one can learn students’ physical co-ordination and social lessons about winning and losing.

The importance of sports in the life of a young student is invaluable and plays a pivotal role in the makeup of a young athlete, especially in the middle school to high school years where student athletes are much more mature and mentally developed. Sports help in learning values like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, sacrifice, and accountability.

Keeping the spirit alive, Queen’s Valley School organized a Badminton Tournament for the students of classes VI-XII on 12 May, 2016. Its objective was to develop in the students a sporting spirit and enable them to display their physical prowess.

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
- Phil Jackson

Sport is an essential part of the curriculum which inculcates sportsmanship, discipline and team spirit in students. Keeping this in mind, Queen’s Valley organised Inter Class Basketball Tournament for the students of classes VI – XII on 11 th May 2015 and was met with great enthusiasm by the whole school.

Its objective was to develop in the students a sporting spirit, a venue to display their physical prowess and gain hands on experience for future. Basketball is a team sport. The fundamentals include working on the little things that make you better -- no matter what team or coach one plays for -or what offense or defense one is running. For example, by working on the fundamentals of shooting, one will get better no matter what team we play for. The fundamentals of shooting include proper foot alignment, leg bend, hand position, arm angle, and follow through. These are some of the little things that make a difference.The same goes for lays ups, foot work, post play, passing, jab steps, jump stops, pivoting, blocking out, and so on.

The day was scheduled to begin at 8 am where the students gathered in the basketball court. All the required arrangements were made and the students participated with greatfervour. During the two days of the prelims, the basketball court at Queen’s Valley was packed with spectatorsand it was a nail biting sports bonanza which kept the audience hooked to their seats. The players played at their best. The students enthusiastically displayed fair play which wasa wonderful experience.

06.05.16-10.05.16 : Investiture Ceremony (2016-17)

A democratic body like the students’ council voices the concerns and opinions of students, and empowers them with a sense of liberty accompanied with responsibility. A good students’ council introduces activities and projects which act as testing ground for novel ideas which in turn, have the potential to lead the way to constructive change by balancing the long-term initiatives of past with the impending needs of future.

In order to prepare students to participate more fully in all facets of democratic life, the institution commemorated the spirit of the Indian Constitution by involving all students from classes IX –XII in the selection of the students' governing body. Technology was employed as an effective means to initiate the students in understanding the transparent and accountable nature of our democratic institution. In order to make the procedure voter-friendly the webpage displayed the photographs and names of all the candidates. The exercise empowered the students to intensively participate in decision making process and helped to inculcate the values of responsibility, academic integrity and exemplary moral conduct.

The Investiture Ceremony held on July 13th 2016, marked not just the formal announcement of giving away of titles to the newly elected students’ council but also reasserted the belief that the reigns of maintaining a disciplined environment have been entrusted in competent hands. The ceremony was a significant step towards the fulfillment of our aspiration to see our students evolve into responsible individuals- individuals who value dignity of labour and display firmness of mind.

The ceremony commenced with the felicitation of the members of the students’ council by the venerable Principal. This was followed by the students taking an oath of sincerity, dedication and transparency in discharging their duties and a reiteration of the significance of the school motto. The event concluded with the Principal’s words of wisdom as she encouraged not only the members of the council to channelise their unbounded potential in a deeply engaging manner but also the audience to participate enthusiastically in realising the goals.

छात्राओं द्वारा रबीन्द्रसंगीत की प्रमुख धुनों पर उत्साहपूर्वक नृत्य प्रस्तुत कर सभा को संगीतमयी बना दिया गया | अंत में राष्ट्रीय‍ गान के साथ विशेष प्रार्थना सभा का समापन किया गया|

रबीन्द्रनाथ टैगोर का वैश्विक मंच पर मानवता का मूल्य निर्धारण करने वाला सार्वभौमिक विचार आज भी विचारणीय है।

27.04.16 : Report on Inter House KhoKho Competition

‘Life is like a KhoKho game moving around in circles not knowing who will touch you when’
- Dr. Harish Shetty

KhoKho ranks as one of the most popular traditional disciplines in India.

Ignored and neglected by the British, KhoKho has not only survived but has witnessed a fantastic spurt in popularity over the past fifty years.With origins in Maharashtra, KhoKho, in ancient times, was played on raths or chariots and was known as Rathera.

The mainstay of the game is that rules are simple and require minimal infrastructure thus making it inexpensive yet enjoyable.Dodging, feinting and bursts of controlled speed make this game exciting and thrilling. To catch by pursuit - to chase, rather than just run- is the capstone of KhoKho.

Mastering how to play KhoKho is a real workout for body and mind.This game helps in developing qualities such as obedience, discipline, sportsmanship, esprit de corps, and loyalty between team-members. It is a game that calls for physical fitness,strength, speed, stamina, agility, concentration and rapid reflex action. It has a toning-up effect on one's health, reduces tension and produces leaders.It gives children an opportunity to learn about social skills, strategy building and also build their confidence.

To promote sports friendly environment and inculcate all the above mentioned qualities in our students, QVSorganised an Inter House KhoKho competition on 27thof April, 2016 in the school premises for classes III to XII.The spirit of healthy competition among the four houses was quite evident. Spectators were left spell bound as they witnessed an exhilarating match.The queens of QVS participated with great fervour and exhibited their well-developed motor and coordination skills.

Earth day celebrates our planet and the life that it provides for all living beings. We humans often forget that without the vital necessities our planet gives us, we would not be able to survive. The air we breathe, the water we drink is all here for us every moment of the day but we take it all for granted and keep polluting our Mother Earth.

21.04.16 : CLASS VII INTER CLASS NATYASHASTRA: SOLO DANCE COMPETITION

Yatho Hasta thathoDrishti, YathoDrishtithathoManah YathoManahthathoBhaava, YathoBhaavathatho Rasa
― Natyashastra

The NāṭyaŚhāstra is a detailed compendium of technical moves pertaining to all performing arts, notably dance, music and literary traditions in India. It is also notable for its aesthetic Rasa theory which asserts that the primary goal of arts and aesthetics is to transport the individual in the audience into another parallel reality, where they experience the essence of their own consciousness, and get an opportunity to reflect on spiritual and moral questions.

In keeping with its aim of promoting reflection and introspection in students, and at the same time, inculcating the spirit of healthy living, Queen's Valley School organized Natyashastra: Folk Dance Competition for the students of class VII on April 21, 2016. The students employed highly sophisticated musical, choreographic and dramatic techniques from classical and contemporary Indian dance forms. Performing on various dance forms ensured a balance between the traditional and novel dance styles, thus enabling the desired balance between traditions and modernity. The students participated in large numbers and at the same time, experienced the manifold health benefits of dance. The use of folklore to represent the changing times and the role of dance in strengthening the cultural diversity of the nation, as well as connecting all indigenous peoples of the world was appreciated by all.

The event helped to develop respect for ancient Indian dance forms in students, as well as helped them to understand the importance of the hybridisation process in dancing which allows unity and diversity to coexist. They were judged on the basis of technique, style, innovation, costumes and economy of expressions.

“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and charm and gaiety to life.”

Music fuels the creativity of the mind. It is a great tool for memorization. It has a universal language with no boundaries. It helps to communicate one’s feelings in the purest form.

19.04.16: Class VIII ACT-O-MANIA:DUMB CHARADE (BOOKS & AUTHORS)

“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts.”
- William Shakespeare

Word Games are a great way to build language, literacy, and counting skills in students. They can also help improve motor coordination skills, reinforce critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and teach children about winning and losing, taking turns, and team work. Acting games are a fantastic tool. They also help students get comfortable, warmed up and focused and also develop important skills required for acting and performing.

A game in which words or phrases are represented in pantomime,sometimes syllable by syllable, until they are guessed by the other players is called Dumb Charades. Dumb Charades involves explaining the phrases or the name of the movie, a personality, a book or a TV show, etc. throughacting. This is one game that can really add lots of excitement and fun to the learning process in a student’s life.

On the 19th April 2016, an Intra Class Act-O-Mania (Dumb Charades) Competition was organized for class VIII. This was a theme based activity for them on the topic- Books and authors.As we say, “a picture speaks a thousand words”,our students conveyed their ideas about books and authors without uttering a word. The game helped them to become familiar with the names of books (indirectly encouraging the reading habit) and enhance imagination.It was a fun event which was enjoyed by one all.The activity was conducted in three different rounds and each team was allocated time to enact and find out the assigned books and authors.

The scoring was done by awarding 10 points to the team for each successful guess of theirs within the timeframe (1 min.). The team from class VIII won with 50 points.

13.04.16 : CLASS VI-XII Inter House Judo Competition

“It is okay to not win a medal in a Judo Tournament, because you still beat everyone who lacked the courage to compete.”

The importance of judo in the life of a student is indispensable and fathomless. It plays a pivotal role in her all round development. It instills values of discipline, responsibility, self confidence, sacrifice, and accountability. Judo is an art because it is a method of arriving at self-realization and true self-expression. It is also a science as it implies mastery of various laws of nature: gravity, friction, momentum, velocity, weight transmission, and unison of forces. It also cultivates the quality of sportsmanship, which lies in playing a game according to its rules and accepting defeat with a positive spirit. One can say that students are likely to follow the ideal of sportsman spirit in life too, showing honesty and uprightness in their dealings with others and never using unfair means to attain personal ends.

Keeping in mind the safety and security challenge being faced by growing girls these days, Judo has been incorporated as an essential part of co-curricular learning at QVS. To evaluate their level of learning and to assess their strength, an Inter Class Judo Competition was held in the school on 13th April 2016 amidst a cheering crowd of enthusiastic spectators. The girls displayed amazing techniques and spell bounding use of arms and legs to overpower their opponent and put up an interesting show. The audience could relate to the essence of this self-defence technique and felt motivated.

23.02.16 : GREEN SCHOOLS PROGRAMME 2015-16

“I don’t want to protect the environment; I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protection.”

We, at QVS, believe in sensitizing our queens about environmental degradation and conserving our environment. For the same, QVS joined hands with Green School Programme which is a programme is based on an audit of the school’s environmental practices, carried out by its own students and evaluated by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE). The objective of this programme is to create zero-waste zone in the school. It focuses on the collection, transport, processing or disposal, managing and monitoring of waste materials. It refers to waste materials produced by human activity, and the process is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics.

The Gobar Times Green Schools Programme is a platform to acknowledge and reward schools which focuses on adaptation of the most innovative and effective practices to manage natural resources within the school’s premises and excel in the field of managing their resources.

With the same idea of conservation of environment in mind, this year too, the queens of Queen’s Valley School worked for the Green Schools Programme initiated by the CSE and secured a national rank 2 in the same competing with 1431 schools all over the country.

“CSE said that the awards have been given on the basis of a detailed assessment of environment-friendly practices such as rainwater harvesting, proportion of green area in school, waste management, water management and sanitation practices, availability of health -promoting food in the canteen, among other practices.”, reported the Hindustan Times.

The award ceremony was held on 23 February, 2016 at India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road. It was presided over by CSE DG Sunita Narain and the chief guest was the famous actor Tom Alter. The awards were given rank-wise and category-wise and the top 10 winners were schools from Noida, Delhi, Sikkim, Rajasthan, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh.

So all in all, the queens proved their mettle once again at a national platform with such a crowning achievement.

But wait, is India really a modern country? Is it really a 21st century country? Caste-system is still prevalent here. Half of our population lives in poverty and is uneducated. There are only 933 girls left per 1000 boys. Parents don’t want to raise a girl child fearing that they will not be able to save enough money for her dowry and education. Female infanticide is at an all-time high. We are struggling to provide safety to our girls.

On 28th January 2016, class VI- C presented a special assembly on the topic ‘Save Girl Child’. The students showcased how women are important for the survival of mankind-without a girl child, boy child can never take birth in this world. Then why is their violence against women and the girl child. Why do they want to kill the girl child before taking birth in her mother’s womb. They answered all the above questions and highlighted the importance of saving the girl child. Students also spread a social message of eradicating female feticide from society.

The students began the day by reciting the school prayer which was followed by the English, Hindi, Sanskrit and French thoughts. English news, GK facts and jokes also comprised a part of the assembly. Thereafter, the students dramatized a short skit on the day’s theme wherein they enacted various roles and laid stress on howgirls are truly the pillars of the society. A small girl child can be a good daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother and other good relations in the future.They also enacted the hollowness of the world where there are no women through a dance performance on the popular song ‘O re chiraya, nanni si chidiya’. The Queens laid special stress on how everyone can help removing this evil from our society. At the climax of the skit, the students highlighted the message that if we want to make our future bright, we first have to save our daughters. We have to give equal treatment to both son and daughter to make our lives fruitful.They gave another excellent dance performance on the song ‘Mujhe kya bechega rupaiya”- which truly captured the spirit of this message. Queens ended their assembly with dance performance on the song ‘Ye betiyon to maaon ki raaniyan hain”and spread the message that in our country where women are worshipped in the form of various Goddesses, we have to stand up and strive to change the society.It was a commendable performance by the young queens and an enriching experience for the audience.
