26.08.2013 – Inter-House Gymnastics

"Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance."

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.

The challenging nature of gymnastics requires commitment and concentration. The structure of gymnastic lessons teaches children how hard work and dedication pays off. The Gymnastics Academy of Boston also believes that gymnastics gives children an opportunity to learn about social skills like listening, following directions, taking turns, being quiet and respecting others.

This is precisely the reason for which Queen's Valley School has included gymnastics as part of its curriculum. To promote gymnastics and increase an interest in students, QVS organised an Inter School Gymnastics competition on 26th of August, 2013 with the aim of ensuring maximum participation and mesmerising performances by the flexible queens of the school.

The young gymnasts warmed up the stage with some floor exercises, cart wheel, balancing beam and various trampoline and rhythmic gymnastics. The audience was left spell bound as they witnessed the difficult exercises and balancing postures.

The queens of QVS participated with great zeal and the ability and enthusiasm they displayed in every move was awe-inspiring. They successfully proved that gymnastics does help children build a range of motor and coordination skills and assists in developing a good sense of body awareness. Whether it is recreational gymnastics or with a competition squad, skills learned in gymnastics can benefit a child's overall development.

“Gymnastics will never be equal or fair, but it should be fun and accessible to as many kids as possible."

The Winners are:

Group I (Class III-VI):
Category Name Class House Position
Artistic Gymnastics Megha Rao VI-D Truth First
Rhythmic Gymnastics Pitambra Shrivastava IV-F Courage First


Group II (Class VII-IX):
Category Name Class House Position

23.08.2013 – Inter-Class Competition- Culinary Delights- Taste of India on a Platter (VI, VII, IX AND X)

‘We first eat with our eyes and then with our mouths’

It is said that children can be moulded the way you want. Taking a cue from this, Queen’s Valley School offered its Queen’s a different ‘menu’ all together. Apart from the daily routine of assigning kids with homework and class work, children got an opportunity to learn the art of cooking. A competition ‘Culinary Delights- Taste of India on a Platter’ was organised in the school for classes V, VII, IX AND X.

Cooking techniques and ingredients vary widely across the world, reflecting unique environmental, economic and cultural traditions. Cooks themselves also vary widely in skill and training. Our own ‘Chefs’ in the making tried their hands at cooking a famous Mumbai snack. The participants from classes V prepared the mouth watering ‘bhelpuri’. The Queens had a wonderful time using ladles and spoons to mix ‘namkeen’, ‘chutney’, chips, ‘seasoning’ to create various flavours of ‘bhelpuri’.

The participants from class VII had to make Chocolate Fudge, Mocktail Blue, Golgappa Tokri and Sweet corn Kosambari Salad without the use of cooking gas. It was a wonderful experience for them as they learnt to make simple yet interesting snack all by themselves.

Young master chefs of class IX, and X had to choose an Indian state and organise different stalls to display the dishes of that state. The states which were represented during the competition were Delhi, Punjab, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. Catering to the tastes and cuisines of India, the Queens prepared a variety of dishes which included salad, starters, main course meal, papri, desserts etc. Participants were judged on the basis of hospitality, taste of dishes, decoration of stalls, and number of items as well as presentation of the dish- keeping in mind that if the food was decorated well, it added a different flavour to the food.

Activities in cooking enable the students to become independent in thought and work. This also builds an attitude of sharing among students. When they cook, they have to share and similarly while eating they share their food. Organising various stalls will help to develop their organisational skills.

Street plays have been an integral part of Indian tradition. The idea of a street play is to propagate social and political messages in a humorous and sarcastic way and create awareness amongst the masses. A street play, or “Nukkad Natak”, is characterized by highly enthusiastic and energetic performance so as to attract maximum crowd. These spaces can be anywhere, including shopping centers, car parks, recreational reserves and street corners. They are especially seen in outdoor spaces where there are large numbers of people.

Keeping this in mind an Inter Class Street Play (Nukkad Natak) for Class 8 was organised for students of Class VIII on 21st August 2013, wherein the students could exhibit their ideas on social issues, environmental issues etc. The students performed in simple costumes carrying simple props.

13.08.2013 – Independence Day Celebration at QVS

“May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.“
Peter Marshall

The youth of today bears the maximum responsibility to carve a better future for the nation. It not only holds the power to lay a firm foundation but also to uproot every undignified element from the face of the nation. The training for the same is majorly imparted by the school and family.

Amidst the buzz of preparation and practice along the corridors of QVS, the 13th day of August 2013 drew up multihued Independence Day celebration in the school. The students of class 9th and 10th were an enthusiastic ensemble of participants who conveyed the message that ‘They Think, They Respect and They Act’ through a musical ballet christened – RENDEZVOUS WITH INDIA. The programme bits were bonded by the marionettes Shubh and Chintak who captured the attention of the audience.

To commence with, the honoured guests of the day were presented with a small souvenir of love and gratitude from the QVS family. It was succeeded by a heartfelt prayer to the almighty for showering his love from heaven. A classical dance performance was gracefully embedded in it.

Afterwards the national flag was unfurled by respected Chairman Sir Mr. S.K. Sachdeva. Our tricoloured possession of ages is envisaged to be a fortunate witness of the 15th day of August in 1947. Chairman Sir enlightened the young queens with his stimulating addressal.

Following it was the musical ballad which brought about glimpses of our unforgettable freedom fighters like Mangal Pandey, Rani Lakshmi Bai of Jhansi and Mahatma Gandhi. The message of being one like the ‘panch tattva’ or the five elements was also incorporated in the ballet. It was a straight message to the youth that any expected transformation is achieved only through firm determination and efforts in the right direction. They are bestowed with the massive liability to learn from the past and merge it in the future.

Nearing the end, the grand finale event took place wherein all the participants assembled on the stage to take a vow to build a shining India. A vote of thanks was proposed in the end to the honourable guests who had graced the occasion with their esteemed presence.

Even after the programme the corridors remained buzzing as the queens chirped, cherished and chatted happily about their fantastic learning experience.





07.08.2013 – Monuments of India : Quiz Competition

“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”

It is well known that historical places are important because they hold history with in them that can be conveyed to future generations. We can study history better with the help of such monuments as they introduce us to the lifestyle, culture, religion and traditions of the people who witnessed the construction of these monuments.

Moreover, India is a country that has been ruled by many kings and emperors. Many of the rulers have built monuments to commemorate important events of their lives and their relationship with their loved ones, public and even God. They have used the best construction material and architectural styles available at that time. Hence, study of monuments is important to understand different eras of history.

An inter-class quiz competition on ‘Monuments Of India’ was organized for class IV. The preliminary round of the competition was held on 05 Aug 2013. Students selected after the preliminary round took part in the final round on 07 Aug 2013. The final round had four rounds. The questions that were asked were related to identification of the monuments, their location, the person who built them, purpose of building those monuments and the monuments that have been recognized as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Our Queens participated with great zeal. The event acted as a confidence booster for them and gave them a chance to showcase their talent and knowledge. It was a learning experience for the participants as well as for the audience. The audience too appreciated the efforts of the queens.
