“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.”
― Erma Bombeck

Talent hunt competition “Mime chime and rhyme, an amalgamation of talent” an initiative that aimed at promoting and enhancing the acting, music and dance talents of the students was held at Queen’s Valley School on 29th & 30th April 2013.

There is something that one can do better than anyone else in the whole world--and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also some unique needs.

“Hide not your talents, they for use were made, What's a sundial in the shade?”
― Benjamin Franklin

“Singing rejuvenates the soul...”

The spirit of music is all pervading. It resides in every creation of God. It is what gives us sustenance, strength, joy and solace. Singing exhibits a confluence of cultures from every corner of the country and reaffirms our commitment to art, music, dance and academics.

Abiding by this motivational truth Queen's Valley School organised an event 'Chimes and Rhymes'-Solo Singing Competition for the students of grade IV on 25th April, 2013. The programme commenced with a soul-stirring performance by a group of little queens singing in perfect unison and harmony. Their musical rendition ‘Come and Sing’ set an appropriate mood for this grand musical extravaganza.

Students participated with great zeal and enthusiasm. The queens sang bhajans, classical and patriotic songs. The auditorium reverberated with melodious music that cast its spell, thoroughly enchanting and mesmerizing the audience with their wonderful performances. Each confident participant displayed her amazing talent, leaving the listeners agape and awe-struck. The singers were supported with the mind-blowing Orchestra. All the participants sang their heart out and were appreciated by one and all.

It was a pleasure to see some of the students perform with great exuberance. A panel of judges judged the little queens. The contestants were judged on their choice of song, rhythm, melody and harmony. The programme ended with a Vote of Thanks and a scintillating grand finale with rocking performances and melodious songs presented by the music teachers.

At Queen's Valley School such events are held which help in showcasing the boundless talent of their queens and fostering bonds of friendship. The school ensures that the children get platform to interact with each other and provides an opportunity to show case their talent and to further polish and refine them.

24.04.2013 – Inter House Judo Championship

“The arms are an extension of the mind…. and judo is the source of discovering and developing the true potential within it.”

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.

At school children are benefitted in the most effective way with the use of both physical and spiritual strength. By training them in attack and defense it refines their body and soul and prepares them for the challenges of tomorrow. It helps the students to make the spiritual essence of Judo a part of their very being. In this way they are able to perfect themselves and contribute something of value to the world.

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 our institution. To evaluate their level of learning and to assess their strength, an inter house judo competition was held in the school on 24th April 2013 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.

23.04.2013 – Chimes and Rhymes : Solo Song Competition
(Class VII)

“On the wings of music we float in the air, mesmerized by the sounds resounding in the air.”

It is said that music has the power to stimulate the senses, captivate the imagination and motivate the being in a positive direction. It gives us an insight into our soul and an opportunity to share a part of ourselves with others. At the same time, singing is simply one of the best ways for developing sound awareness skills in students that are critical to understanding a language. Songs are filled with rhymes, alliteration and different sound patterns. Singing favourite songs over and over again helps children become unconsciously aware of sound patterns and correct pronunciation techniques. Music thus instills a life-long love of language.

Keeping this aim in mind, ‘Chimes and Rhymes: Solo Song Competition’ was organized in Queen’s Valley School on April 23, 2013 for the students of class VII. Students were encouraged to participate in large numbers in the preliminary round. They showcased their singing talent in exceptionally innovative ways. The students shortlisted for the final round were provided with a range of musical instruments including the keyboard, harmonium, table and guitar to add beauty to their melodious voices. They were encouraged to present a variety of songs including folk songs, bhajans, qawwali, classical and semi-classical songs.

The winners were selected on the basis of song selection, voice quality, melody, rhythm, intonation and expression.

The winners:
Name Class & Section Position
Tanveer Nishant VII D I
Simran Singh VII A II
Deepali Mehta VII D III

The event was a great success as it proved to be a great learning experience for the audience and participants alike. It was an attempt to enable our queens realize their potential and encourage them to channelize their energies in a constructive direction.

20.04.2013 – Visit to IIT Delhi

Our class attended the Open House at IIT, Delhi on 20th April, Saturday. The educational trip had a perfect amalgamation of fun and knowledge at the same time. We all got an ideal glimpse into the world of technology and its various aspects.

On entering the campus, our eyes rested into a continuous stare and our mouths zipped open, for the sprawling campus was a sight to behold! The aura about the college campuses in general was truly justified. When we went inside, the entire staff and students of IIT, Delhi welcomed us and showed us some presentations regarding the various disciplines of engineering. The session involved interactions with school students too. It was indeed an enriching and a knowledge gaining session for all of us.

We visited a plethora of labs and that was the best part of the open house! All of us were left awestruck when we saw the students performing marvellous experiments, when the IITians displayed the prototypes of the models they were working on including a tall and huge tablet! The display of robots by the robotic department was amazing! Talent has no bounds there! The university’s students were extremely dedicated and patiently explained us everything. There is a lot to learn from them as their sheer passion and ardour is visible crystal clear in their personalities.

The visit to the Biometrics, Computer, Chemistry laboratories added a cherry to the cake. Watching the students perform the experiments was a true encouraging factor for all of us. The creative research carried out by the IITians is surely, motivating and commendable.

Visiting IIT made me realize the beauty of science not only as a subject but also as a vital ingredient of life’s wholesome recipe. It encompasses the various spheres of life and isn’t just limited to those mind boggling questions!

IIT, as we all know, is one of the dream universities for the most of the students pursuing the Science stream. The visit has truly inspired most of us to work hard! It was one of the most enthralling as well as an informational excursion for all of us. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our school for giving us opportunity to visit IIT.

18.04.2013 – Dancing Divas – Solo Dance Competition (Class III)

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul”
– Martha Graham

Dance is performed as a form of emotional expression, social interaction or exercise in a spiritual or performance setting and is also used to express an idea or tell a story. It is a type of art that generally involves movement of the body, often rhythmic and to music. It gives wings to hands and feet and takes the dancer to another world. A dance competition was held for the queens of Class III on 18th April, 2013.

Our little queens participated with great zeal displaying their talents in various Western and Classical forms of dance. It was a pleasure to see some of our students perform with great exuberance. They all had their own version of dancing- for some it was a vigorous shaking of the head, for others it was just jumping up and down! It was a pleasure watching these tiny tots groove to the music.

They came all dressed up for the occasion in their splendid costumes. The young budding performers enthralled the audience by their captivating and scintillating performances on their favourite numbers. Stage fear was alien to them. They just enjoyed themselves. The audience watching the performances could barely contain their amazement at seeing the flexibility of these young dancers.

12.04.2013 – Solo Dance Competition

“Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing. It’s the rhythm of your life. It’s the expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy, sadness and envy.”
–Jacques D’Amboise

Dance is an emotional outlet and a form of social interaction which helps us to speak our heart out. It is rightly said, "To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak." Depending on the aesthetic, artistic and moral sensibilities, it may range from functional movement such as folk dance to virtuoso techniques such as ballet. It is an art involving rhythmic movement of the body to music. It brings out and strengthens our expressive qualities. It has the power to give us a fresh sense of creativity, motivation and energy. It is not just about steps and music; rather it is the perfect combination of physical and mental stimulation.

To shape up the budding talents of the queens, a Solo Dance Competition for class VI was conducted by Queen’s Valley School. The participants faced the preliminary round on 9th April. No costumes and props were allowed. The selection criterion was appropriate use of expressions, choice of song and the confidence level of the child. The students participated with great enthusiasm and discovered their hidden talents.

The final round was held on 12th April. The queens put on their dancing shoes ready to rock the stage with interesting props like hats, chairs and sticks. The scintillating performances of the little queens made everyone tap their feet to the melodious tunes. They dazzled the stage by presenting a variety of dance forms like Indian, Western, Hip hop, and Contemporary which enthralled the audience. The flamboyant costumes complemented the groovy dance moves by the participants, giving the judges a tough time with the decisions. Whereas one queen amused the audience with her sizzling and well choreographed dance sequence, another queen won everybody’s heart through her elegant and strong postures in the Indian Classical Dance.

Everyone applauded their efforts, hard work and appreciated their colourful performances. Although the competition ended, the memories of such outstanding performances will remain in our hearts forever. It is rightly said,

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt

12.04.2013 – Green School Programme: Gobar Times Award

Waste management is a practice which focuses on delaying the rate of consumption of natural resources. All waste materials, whether they are solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive fall within the ambit of waste management. Waste is becoming a serious environmental problem and can become a hazard if not treated suitably. For supporting and making this initiative reach heights as well as to create zero-waste zone in the whole country, contribution of young minds is decisive.

We, at QVS, believe in sensitising our queens about environmental degradation and conserving our environment. For the same, QVS joined hands with Green School Programme. The programme is based on an audit of the school’s environmental practices, carried out by its own students. 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.

The Queens of classes IX- XI enthusiastically participated in the Gobar Times Awards as part of ‘Green School Programme’ by preparing an environmental audit report of the school.

The award ceremony to felicitatethe winners in various categories was held on 12th April’ 2013 at India Habitat Centre in New Delhi. Various schools from Delhi and across the nation participated in the Green School competition. This year’s awards were presented by Mr. Ramakant Goswami, minister of transport, election, law and labour, Government of Delhi, and members of the popular Indian rock band, Indian Ocean.

The awards were divided into two main categories – National and State. The 20 national awards were further sub-divided into two segments of 10 awards each – the New Schools (those which have done the environmental audit for the first time and have excelled) and Change makers (those which have already done the environmental audit once before and continue to excel). Amongst the fifty leading schools of Delhi Queen’s Valley School bagged the second prize at the State level and fourth prize at the National level in the category of Change Makers. The queens also participated in a street play competition where they won the first prize showing the people of Delhi that the environment can be looked after by maintaining harmony with the neighbourhood.

It was a moment of great pride for QVS to receive such a prestigious award from the Honourable Minister of Delhi who motivated our students to reach even greater heights. The competition was an exhilarating and learning experience for our queens who pledged to continue taking steps to minimize environmental damage. Through their effort the students of Queen’s Valley School join the larger nationwide movement of environmental conservation.

10.04.2013 – Basketball Finals

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

Encouraging our queens to embark on the road to achieving success through team work, QVS organized an Inter House Basketball Competition for classes VI to XII on the 10th of April 2013. This was the first event in the series of inter house sporting events which have been planned and will be conducted during the session 2013-14. Such events are held taking into account the emphasis laid by the evolving educational system on both the scholastic as well as the co- scholastic aspects of the learning process. We take cognizance of the fact that to excel in life, an individual needs to be exposed to a considerable number of fields in order to map one’s potential in the most conducive manner. We, at QVS, constantly try to give those kinds of opportunities to our queens in various forms.

The focus in organizing an event like this has always been on developing values related to team sports. Through these we encourage our students to learn the ways to accomplish tasks in less time- when people work together they can complete tasks faster by dividing the work to people of different abilities and knowledge. Sports provide an opportunity to acknowledge the importance of being engaged in healthy competition-it can be used to motivate individuals and help the team excel. Also, a team that continues to work together will eventually develop an increased level of bonding. This can help people avoid unnecessary conflicts since they have become well acquainted with each other through team work.

Not only are these qualities of value on the field but they impart meaning to the lives otherwise as well. This precisely is our endeavor at QVS. We strive to make the students integrate the values related to different co-scholastic areas into their lives so as to develop their personalities in a well-rounded manner.

During the event, the queens thrilled the audience with their techniques of shooting, passing, dribbling, and rebounding, as well as responding to the specialized player positions and offensive and defensive structures and techniques. It was absolutely wonderful to see them make use of their keen observation skills as they synchronized as teams playing from the “center", "power forward" and "small forward" positions, while shorter players or those who possess the best ball handling skills and speed play "point guard" or "shooting guard".

The preliminary round for the same took place for classes VI to VIII on the 8th of April and for classes IX to XII on the 9th of April. The prelims were held house wise that is between Peace house and Truth house and, between Courage house and Integrity house.

The results for the basketball finals held on the 10th of April 2013 were:
