31.07.14: Inter Class Competitions – Classes I & II

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”
- Gail Devers

Keeping this thought in mind, the students of class I and II participated with great zeal and enthusiasm, when QVS organised various competitions in the months of July and August 2014. Some of the events which were held were Show and Tell , Tip Tap Toe Dance Competition and Li’l Picasso Colouring Competition.

QVS works towards the overall development of its queens and aims at bringing out the best in them. Such competitions provide a platform to students to come out of their comfort zone and make an effort to overcome their fear. They also provide great opportunities for students to discover their talent, work in teams and learn sportsman spirit.

In the Show and Tell competition, classes I and II were each given a different topic to prepare, i.e. 'My Family’ and ‘Fruits and Vegetables’ respectively. Students had to bring different props and explain their topic in an innovative and impressive way. It helped them gain confidence and improve their oral skills.

QVS not only held academic driven competitions, but also had some fun activities lined up for the students. Dancing with the feet is one thing but dancing with the heart is another. Our students proved this when they set the floor on fire with their awe-inspiring performances. The different dances showcased by the li’l princesses were breathtaking and the judges had a tough time deciding the winners.

During the Li’l Picasso Colouring Competition, our queens explored their imagination while choosing the colours of their choice to colour their pictures. They created a vibrant atmosphere and gave meaning to the phrase “Colour in a picture is like the enthusiasm in life.”

30.07.2014 – INTER CLASS PAGE TO STAGE COMPETITION- WE ARE EARTH WARRIORS (CLASS IX)

“The change we long for comes from our will. Let's start becoming the people we were meant to be. Let's start becoming Earth warriors.”

Mother Earth is all we have and to protect and preserve her beauty, we need to do our bit each day. Our Earth is not just ours but our children’s too. If we don’t use judiciously what we have, then our children will have to suffer. It is essential to make the inhabitants of the Earth aware about the changing condition of our planet and how we all can save Earth from the clutches of disastrous calamities

It is high time that we put in our concerted effort as this planet Earth belongs to us and it is not only our duty but also our need to do everything in our ability to set it right. Each small step and every small action will count in the big scenario and will bring about the necessary difference we need.

We at Queen’s Valley School believe in the overall development of our Queens. The emphasis is laid not only on curricular but on co-curricular activities as well. A pupil should be able to relate not only to the textbook but also to the world around us. The best way to show how well one can connect is through the dramatization of the social milieu. Keeping this in view, Queen’s Valley School organized INTER CLASS PAGE TO STAGE COMPETITION - WE ARE EARTH WARRIORS on 30th July 2014 for the students of class IX. The queens announced themselves to be the saviours of the earth.

The Queens participated with great enthusiasm. 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 as well to work for the betterment of the environment and thereby create a more environment – friendly world.





30.07.2014 : Class X INTER CLASS ‘SERENDIPITY-INVENTIONS BY CHANCE COMPETITION

“Look for something, find something else and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for”

In an era of constant innovation and discovery, we may not realize that most inventions take years to develop. But sometimes all it takes is an accident. A surprising number of discoveries owe a lot to chance. From plastic and potato chips to matches and microwaves, these strokes of scientific serendipity have had a big impact on our lives.

The students of class X got a chance to know about many such accidental discoveries through an interclass competition. ‘Serendipity’ – Inventions by chance. The competition was organized as a part of Science and Technology month and was held on 30th July, 2014.

The participants prepared a power point presentation on an invention which occurred by chance or by accident. The story of the accidental discovery was presented by each participant in a clear & logical sequence. The participants brought forward dozens of examples of serendipity from just about every conceivable field from Isaac Newton and his famous apple, to Edward Jenner and the vaccination of small pox & to the discovery of many of the chemical elements.

The presentations were effective in capturing & maintaining the attention of audience. It was a very informative experience and helped to widen the range of students’ knowledge.

“Open your ears and mind and may be one day you will also be hit by ‘Eureka’.

The Winners:
Name Class Position

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything”

Since time immemorial, music has been embedded in our lives. It seeps into art and culture, finds expression in language, and has great effect on lifestyle. It fuels the mind and thus fuels our creativity. It transcends all boundaries.

24.07.2014 – Rendezvous With Indian History

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
Nelson Mandela

Freedom is an essential part of our life. It is probably one of the most important civil liberties in a democratic society. Freedom is so important for a living being that without freedom there is no meaning of life. The idea behind freedom is to be respectful and useful to our society. Freedom is important to everyone so nobody should be deprived of this innate right.

Today we move freely around in our country without anyone questioning or imposing any kinds of restrictions on us, we feel satisfied and contented. But this satisfaction is due to the effort made by our freedom fighters to free our country from the British Raj. Its because of our freedom fighters that today we are enjoying our freedom. Their satyagrahas, sacrifices and the tortures they went through have resulted in the freedom that we enjoy today in our motherland India.

We at QVS are of the view that we must teach the next generation the importance of freedom so that they can become responsible citizens of our country.

Keeping this in mind an inter-class fancy dress competition RENDEZVOUS WITH INDIAN HISTORY-FREEDOM FIGHTERS was organized for all the sections of Std. IV on 24th July`14 in the Cultural Hall.

The queens enthusiastically participated in the competition and gave the judges a tough time in selecting the winners. However, the winners were selected on the basis of confidence, content and presentation.

An anagram is a type of word play which is the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly.

Recreational activities are a major part of the curriculum today where a sense of inquiry is generated among the students through a series of mind storming activities such as puzzles, game shows, anagrams etc.

We, at Queen’s Valley School believe in providing enriching experience to our queens and to ensure this a number of recreational activities are structured to enhance acquaintance of our queens about our scientific world. An inter- class, anagram competition was organized for class VI on July 24, 2014.

22.07.2014 – Class X-B Special Assembly (TSUNAMI)

‘Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose’

We cannot stop natural disaster but we can arm ourselves with knowledge and disaster preparedness.

Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength. No matter - what ever the difficulty, how painful an experience – if we lose our hope that’s the real disaster.

Students of Class X-B presented a special assembly on the topic ‘Tsunami’ on 22nd July 2014, wherein they endeavoured to give a message on how the damage and loss of lives caused by a tsunami can be averted by taking heed of natural warnings and by not ignoring them.

The students presented a skit depicting the pain, suffering, struggle and shattered emotional lives of the survivours of a village in a coastal area who have lost their family and loved ones. The loss of lives could have been averted if the villagers took heed of natural warnings and promptly moved to higher ground. The act was supported by dance performances. The students also conveyed the message of inculcating a humanitarian approach towards the victims as relief cannot be measured solely in monetary terms. The victims need emotional and psychological touch to come out of their severe trauma and resettle their shattered emotional lives. With this message the special assembly came to an end. The performance was applauded and appreciated by all.

22.07.2014 - Manisha Yadav does her alma mater proud

18.07.2014 – Inter Class Global Dancing Sensation (Class VI)

By nature, dance is the expression of emotions, feelings and opinions through the movement and manipulation of the body. Dance, very often finds itself in the form of telling a story or conveying emotion through choreography.

Queen’s Valley School students not only showcased and focused on the multi-cultural growth in today’s world through their competition on Global Dancing Sensation held on 18th July 2014. This competition cum project was taken as an activity under the action plan of British Council for ISA 2014. The competition infused a spark in every student to ponder over a few questions like: How can dance forms be meaningful outside their original culture? How does globalization entail the preservation and ownership of dance traditions? How does the global circulation of dances reproduce or challenge international power relationships? Within dance, how is globalization reconciled with the articulation of local, regional or national identities? How has globalization affected the creativity and production processes of dancers and choreographers? What is the connection between dance globalization and multiculturalism?

Under the influence of globalization, many dance genres have become international and grown roots in locations far from their birthplaces. Hip-hop, salsa, tango, ballet and bharatanatyam exemplify this trend. Students of Queen’s Valley School have accelerated the creation of hybrid dance forms that fuse elements from various cultures, as illustrated by choreographers who interweave Indian dancing and international aesthetics. Dance is also cultural in a lot of cases; many cultures express their religion and values through dance.

Queens of our school created mesmerizing dance performances of different countries that left everyone spellbound.

18.07.2014 – Inter Class - “Food Fight - Healthy vs Junk”
(Class III)

“Health is like money, we never have true idea of its value until we lose it.”

Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.

The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.

If there would be a fight between healthy and junk food then what would happen? If food could tell their qualities to everyone then how would they?

Healthy food or junk food?To remove this confusion, our queens of class III came dressed up as food and participated in this fancy dress competition which was held on 18.07.14.

Our little queens were dressed up in different costumes representing different food items. They came confidently and spoke effortlessly. They wore wonderful costumes and carried interesting props. Each one of them spoke flawlessly and mesmerized the audience with their performance. Our queens made the show extremely enjoyable and a true learning experience for everyone.

Class VII-B presented an assembly depicting a glimpse of the life of a great & learned scholar of Takshila “ Chanakya ”.

The play enacted by the students gave an insight into the journey of Chanakya’s life,his meeting with the great soldier Chandragupta who later was crowned as the king of Mauryan Dynasty with the guidance & learnings of Chanakya. Students depicted how Chankaya was insulted & thrown out by the King Dhanananda from his court which further infuriated him to take the revenge by eradicating the social evils from the society and to overthrow Nanda Dynasty along with the foreign invader Alexander.

Queens also depicted how he trained Chandragupta and set an example of unity & diversity by bringing people together & igniting in them the light of power, freedom & determination to fight for their rights.

Children were dressed according to their roles. They delivered their dialogues with great poise and perfection. Queens ended their assembly with a special message that how principled our leaders were. On seeing such high moral standards of our ancient spiritual leaders, it makes us realize that we should try to emulate them at least a little, so that we can walk on the path of a pure mind and a pure conscience. If we, as citizens, try to adopt even one such great quality of our ancestors, our country’s future would be brighter than what it is now. Their dance performance on the song “Jai Ho” perfectly reflected the message. It was a commendable performance by the young queens and an enriching experience for the audience with a message that we can make a better future for us and for the generations to come.

The special assembly ended with” National Anthem”.





10.07.14 - Special Assembly – Biological Disaster

Biological disaster can be defined as the use of biological agents to cause death, disability or damage mainly to human beings. The three basic groups of biological agents, which could be used as weapons, are bacteria, viruses, and toxins. Most biological agents are difficult to grow and maintain.

Biological agents can be dispersed by spraying them into the air, by infecting animals that carry the disease to humans, and by contaminating food and water. Mycotoxins were once reported to be used in Afghanistan. Even before that it has also been documented that the Red Indians in North America were given the smallpox infected blankets.

On 10 July 2014, class IX D presented a special assembly on the topic ‘Biological Disaster’ . The students recited the school prayer which was followed by the English, Hindi, Sanskrit and French thoughts. English news, G.K. facts and jokes also comprised a part of the assembly. Thereafter, the students dramatized a short skit on the topic wherein they described what is a biological disaster, a brief history of the same followed by the various ways in which it can spread .

Queens ended their assembly stating the measures of prevention to be followed in order to be free from such biological disasters. The song ‘I’m Alive’ (sung by Celine Dion) truly captured the spirit of this message.

The assembly was well conducted and the students enacted their roles with great confidence.






08.07. 2014 – CLASS: VIII A Special Assembly - Karna

The school assembly is one of the most important aspects of a school's curriculum. Its potential to nurture a positive school ethos that stresses care for the self, others and the pursuit of all forms of excellence should not be underestimated. It powerfully nurtures the development of intrapersonal intelligence.

Queens of class VIII, displayed their talent for the special assembly on the topic Karna – a warrior with ‘kawach and kundal’. The girls illustrated the values which act as a foundation not only for spiritual education but for the development of personal, social and health education and the spiritual.

Karna was one of the greatest warriors whose martial exploits are recorded in the Mahābhārata, Karna was the son of Surya (a solar deity) and Kunti. He was the closest friend of Duryodhana and fought on his behalf against the Pandavas (his brothers) in the famous Kurukshetra war. He also fought against misfortune throughout his life and kept his word under all circumstances. Many admire him for his courage and generosity. The grandeur of Karna with his smoldering anger into a terrifying conflagration created a spark igniting the students minds.

The assembly stressed on an episode where Karna sharpens his skills from his guru Parshuram with a cohesive harmony and later is cursed by his master for his treachery. One day when Parshuram was resting in Karna’s lap, it so happened that a bee stung Karna on the lower part of his thigh and he started bleeding. However, fearing that if he moved his legs, he would awaken Parshuram, he did not move at all and continued to suffer. When Parshuram woke up, he saw Karna bleeding. He cursed him immediately as he believed that a Brahmin cannot suffer so much physical pain. Only a kshatriya can endure so much discomfort. Parshuram was greatly annoyed and therefore cursed Karna that as he had learnt through deceit, he shall forget the skill which Parshuram had taught him at the crucial juncture.

The assembly reiterated the positive values each student should include in their individual thoughts and abilities from Karna’s life. Finally, at a subtle but powerful level, a reminder of the importance of these values was voiced out from Karna’s mouth -“There’s a Karna in each one of us. We all possess the qualities of a fighter, a warrior, a man who believes in humanity, a great son, a loyal friend, a true discipline and the one who is true to mankind what we need to do is to take out that Karna”. Indeed a web of ideas, observations and intentions from Mahabhara were woven and the assembly was a touchstone of spiritual values and culture.
