22.05.14: Report on US Trip

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

A hopeful heart finds respite in seeking knowledge and longing eyes covet beautiful sights and so, together they enrich the soul. The journey of education at QVS discovered a new chapter, to be cherished for life. The idea of venturing to USA, right since the day of inception, had been an exciting affair among the students and the faculty. Once the thought was realized and the planning began, the process gained momentum to the highest levels. Each and every detail pertaining to the tour was accurately scrutinized and no stone was left unturned to ensure safety and security of the students.

After loads of preparations and checklists came the D‐day i.e. Friday, 9th of May 2014 and eventually we boarded our vehicle of wings ‐ an Emirates flight. The first stop of the journey was Dubai. It was just a transit stop over but the students got an opportunity to see for themselves a state of the art international airport. After an 18 hr journey we finally landed at our dream destination. The winding of the needles of our watches(according to USA time) was the first sign‐ YES! We are here.

We began with the city tour of Washington DC – the capital of USA. Visiting the city one could feel the political and administrative whiff in the air. The Capitol Building, Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther king Jr. Memorial and Lincoln Memorial were visited in the first phase whereas White House was visited in the second phase on the same day. The rain which joined us on our first day remained with us throughout the journey. Though it did not affect the morale of the students and could not play spoil sport at all.

The second day at Washington DC was dedicated to the Smithsonian Museum of Air and Space which has exhibits which trace the history of air and space travel. From the Wright Brothers to the escapades of Amelia Earhart the models were there for all to see and appreciate the human spirit and its tenacity. The next day heralded the best moments of the trip i.e. the Kennedy Space Center. The two days at NASA were informative, educative and full of fun too. The space shuttle experience, launch pads, lunch with an astronaut, 3D movie and the Angry Birds PlayStation collectively made it mesmerizing. The next two ventures were at the magical world of Disneyland and Universal Studios. These places spoke of nothing but sheer fun, amusement and spectacle for all age groups. The joy‐rides and mesmerizing ambience made our day. Another memorable part of the stay at Orlando was the interaction of the students of Queen’s Valley School and City Montessori School. The students got an opportunity to interact and learn about the students of USA at a personal level. The questions of both groups of students proved to the elders that children are the same everywhere – East or West.

No aspect of learning was ignored. Whether trying out different cuisines or visiting the Florida Mall and Walmart nothing was left untried. The Queen’s learnt about spending money judiciously and also about buying gifts for their near and dear ones. In the bargain shopping, shopping and lots of shopping were one of the most enjoyable features for all of us. Although weary, but our excitement level knew no bounds while visiting New York‐ the city that never sleeps. Amidst the lights, skyscrapers, crowd and commotion we came across an absolutely new experience at the Times Square which is truly a crossroad of all humanity. The major attraction for our queens was the chocolate world of Hershey’s. The students picked up their favourite flavours and shopped till they dropped. Also, the New York City tour that was in store enlightened us to a great extent. Reaching the 86th floor of the Empire State Building in less than a minute was an exhilarating experience which took us closer to the sky and one could feel the clouds against one’s face. The students were apprised with the history and the contemporary facts about the city. The most visible feature of USA – the statue of Liberty was on the itinerary on the 17th of May. A truly memorable visit began with the breathtaking sight of the New York and Manhattan sky lines from the ferry. The first stop was Ellis Island which was the first stop of all early immigrants to NYC. The Statue of Liberty could be seen from far as she stood tall and majestic welcoming tourists from all over the world.

The Rockefeller Museum was the next stop interspersed with the sights of the Central Park, the residences of the rich and famous and the Indian Consulate at NYC. The famous stores of which one had read were all there for one to see. Following this trip around the city was a sombre moment for the students as they paid a silent homage to the victims of 9/11 at Ground Zero. At the same spot they appreciated the spirit of the American people when they were shown the new World Trade Centre.

The evening ended with a visit to the famed Madame Tussauds wax museum. It was a great opportunity for the students to learn about different personalities from the world of politics, entertainment and sports. It was a great photo opportunity as well.

The next day followed a four hour road travel to Boston which introduced us to the serene, tranquil and lush green ambience of the city. It not only homes world’s most coveted educational hubs like MIT and Harvard but also proved successful in tempting us to relax in its lap for a much longer time. But owing to our scheduled itinerary, we could not give in. The rendezvous of the Queens with these renowned institutions filled them with zest and motivation to set higher goals and be there as its student one day. As all good things come to an end, so did the trip. On the final day the queens bid adieu to the wonderland of US and boarded their flight back home. The 12 days spent in the other part of the globe are of course a novel experience and a life time souvenir in our memories.

08.05.14: CLASS I-II TALENT HUNT COMPETITION

EVERY ONE HAS TALENT. WHAT IS RARE IS THE COURAGE TO FOLLOW THE TALENT TO THE DARK PLACE WHERE IT LEADS.

It is said that every individual is born with some natural ability. The prowess of elders in recognizing these abilities and thereafter harnessing them plays an important role in developing the young mind. For talents may do wonders for them if recognized and encouraged at the right time. QVS recognizes the importance of talent. We believe that it is important for children to do well in academics as well as in extra- curricular activities like painting, dancing, theatre, public speaking, music and many more. Hence a talent hunt was organized to explore and enhance their hidden talents.

08.05.14 Inauguration Paper Recycling Unit

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can”

QVS has always tried to sensitize its queens towards the environmental issues around us today. The school has always taken initiatives in managing waste produced by any means and has persistently ensured judicious use of paper. The school successfully installed Paper Recycling Unit within the school premises, as recycling paper conserves natural resources, saves energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and keeps landfill space free for other types of trash that can't be recycled.

07.05.14: CLASS IV ‘INTER CLASS HERTZ-TYPING SKILLS’

I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.

Microsoft word is a word processing software which makes typing letters, stories, reports etc an easier task. It not only types but also edits and formats the text in an effective manner. We can also give an exciting look to the text by using different colours, styles and effects.

To keep children abreast with knowledge of modern softwares and their use, An inter-class ‘Hertz-typing Skills’ competition was organized on 07 May 2014 for queens of class-IV. Our queens had to prepare a document using features and tools of MS-Word in the best possible way.

The event was a success. Our queens excelled in accuracy, speed and beautification of their document. The event not only gave them a chance to showcase their talent but also acted as a confidence booster for our queens. The hard work and creations of our queens were highly appreciated.

NAME CLASS-SECTION POSITION

07.05.14: Inter- Class Code-a-Thon (XI-XII)

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.”

Computer Softwares have their application or utility everywhere. We find their applications in almost every sphere of life–particularly in fields where computations are required to be done at a very fast speed and where data is so complicated that the human brain finds it difficult to cope up with it. Advent of computer software in the last few decades has brought a revolution in the in the fields of Corporate sector, Banks, Medical Science, Aeronautics, Robotics etc.

Encouraging our queens to embark on the road to being tech savy, QVS organized an Inter- Class “Code-a-Thon Competition” for classes XI to XII on 7th May, 2014. Such events are held to acquaint students with modern technology, which is present in all spheres of life. The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate performing a specific task or solve a given problem. The process of programming thus often requires expertise in formulation of logic for problem solving

In order to inculcate the finest software techniques in our queens, the school organised a competition for class XI and XII which included Programming of C++ programs and SQL Databases. Students from Commerce and Humanities stream worked with SQL Queries and students from Science stream worked with C++ instructions.

IT Stands for "Information Technology," refers to anything related to computing technology, such as networking, hardware, software, the Internet, or the people that work with these technologies. Information Technology plays an important part in the education industry today. Education is an important factor that reflects the personality of the individual person in our society.

Easy worldwide communication provides instant access to a vast array of data which means that learning becomes a truly lifelong activity - an activity in which the pace of technological change forces constant evaluation of the learning process itself. Through the use of Information Technologies, quality of education is enhanced.

QVS endeavours to make its students aware of the latest trends in information technology. An INTER – HOUSE TECHNOMINDS IT-QUIZ was organized with this aim in mind.

03.05.2014 – Installation of Paper Recycling Unit

A society is defined not only by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy.
- John Sawhil

Queen’s Valley School, an institution devoted wholeheartedly to the cause of preserving the health of the ailing planet, believes in sensitizing the students about the need to protect our environment. In order to ensure the successful implementation of this idea, the institution has taken a giant leap further in its enterprise of creating a zero-waste zone in its premises. Under the aegis of Dr B.C. Sabata, Senior Scientific Officer, Department of Environment, Government of NCT of Delhi, the school has been able to adopt one of the most innovative and effective practices to manage natural resources within the school’s premises: installation of Paper Recycling Unit.

This initiative is in continuation with the school’s persistent efforts to focus on the collection, transportation, processing or disposal, managing and monitoring of waste materials produced by human activities. The school’s association with the Green School Programme is yet another example of its relentless endeavour in the domain of environmental management. A few programmes have already been successfully undertaken to this effect- the solar panel installation for channelizing renewable resources; artificial nesting for attracting sparrows after it was declared the State bird by the Delhi Government; and the preparation of kitchen gardens.

The Paper Recycling Unit would serve to voice the school’s concern on the issue of sustainable development through its R4 Initiative– Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Re-leaf. The school’s efforts in ensuring judicious use of paper, which began with an insistence on effectively using the school website for displaying varied information has witnessed another revolutionary milestone in the form of the paper saving unit.

Apart from serving as a medium to channelize the vitality and enthusiasm of students through proper engagement in environment conservation activities, the successful utilization of the unit as a teaching-learning aid would initiate them to make optimum utilization of natural resources by making them partake cognitive and perceptive learning.

03.05.2014 – Inter Class Dance Competitions

‘Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education: dancing with the feet, with ideas, and with words….’
- Friedrich Nietzsche

Dance, in its quintessential form, is the expression of emotions, feelings and opinions through the graceful movements of the body. Dancing contributes immensely to the personal development of the child and thereby enhances all types of skills that are required for better education. Apart from being a form of exercise which ensures the smooth functioning of the vital organs of the body in a multidimensional way, dance functions as a symbol of one's culture, values, religion and identity. The various dance forms, thus together exhibit a co-existence of different cultures and nationalist identities.

At QVS it is believed that the goal of education can never be singularly academic. Co-scholastic activities play an indispensable role in exposing learners to the immense possibilities of innovation and creative expression, thereby enabling them to experience the diverse facets of life. In keeping with its aim of promoting inclusive education and inculcating the spirit of healthy living and multifaceted cultural understanding in the students, the school organised a variety of dance competitions pertaining to both Indian and international dance forms in the month of April. The events helped to introduce and expose the students to the culture, traditions and values that the varied dance forms represent. Performing on various dance forms ensured a balance between Indian and international dance styles, thus living true to the global principle of integrated living. The students participated in large numbers and at the same time, experienced the manifold health benefits of dance. They left the audience spell-bound with their flexible and graceful dance steps.

The events also helped the students to participate in cooperative and collaborative group endeavours. They were judged on the bases of innovation, bodily grace, costumes and expressions.

In today’s fast paced life everyone wants everything on their fingertips. One of the comforts provided by computers to us today are “websites”. Web designing is an art that appeals the users with texts and graphics. Web design is also seen as a technological standpoint. It has become a large part of people’s everyday lives. It is hard to imagine the Internet without animated graphics, different styles of typography, background and music.

Technological innovations affect all aspects of our lives and the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.

01.05.2014 – Class IX‐C Special Assembly on Floods

“There is no disaster that cannot become a blessing, and no blessing that cannot become a disaster.”

Over the ages, natural calamities have been teaching a lesson to the mankind about not crossing the limit of harnessing natural resources. Some disasters come with a warning whereas others do not. In such case we need to equip ourselves with the correct measures to avert damage. Flood is one such natural disaster which can be forecast but can’t be controlled. Therefore, timely action and prevention can help to control the harm.

Students of class IX‐C staged a class presentation on the topic‐‘Floods’ on 1st May 2014 wherein they endeavoured to give a message on how to avert damage caused by floods. The skit was based on the story of a boy‐ Vashu, who lived by the sea‐ shore in a village in Maharashtra. His village had been washed away by the flood resulting in the loss of his house, school and family too. He recalled how the villagers had ignored the warnings given by the meteorological department and had to face the fury of nature thereafter. Later it was shown that the villagers reconstructed their village with constant efforts. The acts were supported by colourful dance performances. The students, with the help of props, also highlighted the concept of developing Green Belt along the shores of river or sea which greatly helps in curbing the impact of sea waves lashing the nearby inhabitation. The students were clad in apt costumes and were in high spirits during the Special Assembly. The audience applauded the effort.
