24.07.2013 – Inter House Yoga Competition

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.”
– B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga is a system of physical and mental fitness and final liberation. It is a method of training the mind and developing its power of subtle perceptions so that man may discover for himself the eternal truths on which religions, beliefs and moral values finally rest. While on the one hand it helps each bodily cell to revitalize itself and improves the circulation and quality of blood, on the other it proves to be an applied method to train the mind to concentrate and harmonizes the functioning of nervous and endocrine system which results in control and ultimate eradication of psychological distortions.

It is our constant endeavour to give the best of the prescribed as well as the hidden curriculum to all students all every level through various learning experiences. Following Dewey’s footsteps we help to prepare students to participate more fully in all facets of democratic life employing democracy both as a goal and a method of instruction.

Realizing our goal of orienting the students towards preparing them to be active participants in all aspects of democratic life, we conduct the process of election of the Students’ Council every year. The event empowers the students to intensively participate in group decision making, negotiation, and constructive social life. The first level of campaigning for the Students’ Council was held on the 19th July’13 in the morning assembly which witnessed the introduction and presentation of the agenda by the candidates for the various posts. The second level was conducted in the form of a more comprehensive campaigning which required the candidates to campaign for votes in each and every class on the 22nd July ’13. On the next day, the election process was conducted under an online forum open for all the students from classes IX-XII on the school’s website.

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 students were encouraged to elect their representatives by choosing the names for the various positions from a drop down menu and exercise their democratic rights at the click of a button. Through this process the students were exposed to the principle of One Person-One Vote- One Value in a modernized way.

15.07.2013 – Fire Management Workshop

July 15, 2013, New Delhi: The personnel and students of Queen’s Valley School were enthralled with the benign presence of Mr. Netra Pal Singh, Principal, Delhi Institute of Fire Training and his learned team who gave them a unique opportunity to enhance their existing training with a procedural understanding of combating fire hazards as an integral part of an organization’s daily activities. This workshop was conducted with the aim to inculcate structured and systematic techniques to identify fire hazards, evaluate risks and prioritize actions.

Mr. Singh focused on the need to develop effective procedures to fight any fire outbreak, whether large or small, that might occur during the functioning of the school. It is therefore important to develop a response plan aimed at addressing the awareness and the mechanism necessary for its response. He thus emphasized the fact that schools should be equipped with fire alarm detection and notification systems, and fire suppression systems like hydrants and fire extinguishers to ensure maximum safety of life and property during a blaze. At the same time, schools should have an effective communication system to regulate an emergency situation effectively.

The DIFT team conducted a fire drill as part of a standard emergency response procedure. At the same time, they stressed upon the fact that such drills should be executed at different hours of the day during the changing of classes, when the school is at assembly, during the recess or gymnastic periods, or during other times to avoid distinction between drills and actual fire. The means to use a fire extinguisher was also demonstrated by the DIFT personnel to empower the teachers and students in a hazardous situation.
