30.11.14: QVS Mathematics Olympiad

“Just as a mountaineer climbs a mountain – because it is there , so a good mathematics student studies new material because it is there.”

JAMES B. BRISTOL

The Olympiad is a means to identify and encourage the mathematical creativity of children in schools across India.

Sometimes the understanding of fundamental concepts alone does not help the students to crack competitive exams as most of them are objective in nature. To bridge this gap and to enable the students to face the reality of competitive exams, we decided to bring out all objective questions in the form of QVS Math Olympiad conducted during the Mathematics month.

Mathematics month was organised in Queen’s Valley School in the month of November 2014, where in activities which enrich our Queen’s knowledge about maths were well thought out.

One such activity a ‘Mathematics Olympiad’ for classes III to XII was organised. The endeavours were to spot mathematical talent and promote excellence in Mathematics. It was aimed at providing opportunities to young and talented students to solve challenging problems in maths, encouraging talented students to pursue careers in the fields related to Maths.

28.11.14: CLASS III-E SPECIAL ASSEMBLY TENALI RAMAN

Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.
- Benjamin Franklin

Tenali Ramakrishna who was known as Vikatakavi (jester poet) was a Telugu poet who hailed from the present Andhra Pradesh region. Tenali Ramakrishna attained the status of a ‘Folk hero’ when he was the court poet of Shri Krishnadevaraya, but at the same time he composed serious works on religion in Telugu. He was one of the Ashtadiggajas or the eight poets at the court of Krishnadevaraya, the Vijayanagara emperor. Three of his narrative poems are available today. He is known for his wit and humour. On 28th November 2014, class III-E presented a special assembly on the topic ‘Tenali Raman’.

The students began the day by reciting the school prayer which was followed by the English, Hindi thoughts. English news, GK facts and jokes also comprised a part of the assembly. Thereafter, the students dramatized a short skit on the day’s theme wherein they enacted various roles. The special assembly ended with the National Anthem.

The students dressed according to their roles and looked beautiful in their eye catching costumes. The Queens delivered their dialogues with great poise and perfection. It was a well conducted assembly and the Queens gave the message that laughter and humour lightens the mind. Laughter should not be to wound others. Laughter should be gentle and friendly. The assembly proved a good way to showcase their talent. Their performance was felicitated through a big round of applause by the audience.






28.11.14:CLASS III-C SPECIAL ASSEMBLY “Akbar Birbal Tales”

“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.”

Birbal (Mahesh Das) was a Brahmin advisor in the court of the Mughal emperor Akbar. Birbal had a close association with the emperor, being part of his group of courtiers called the navaratna or nine jewels. Birbal is mostly remembered in folk tales, which focus on his wit. Appointed by Akbar as a poet and singer, Birbal soon became an important advisor and was sent on military expeditions despite having no previous background. Birbal is mostly shown as being younger than Akbar, religious and surrounded by envious courtiers. These tales depict him outsmarting the courtiers and sometimes even Akbar. He used his intelligence to give witty and humorous responses which impressed Akbar.

Class III-C presented an assembly depicting the glimpse of the lives of Akabr and Birbal on 28.11.14. Our queens enacted a play where they showed how Akbar and Birbal met when Akbar with his courtiers lost his way in a jungle. The queens also depicted that how an ordinary person named Mahesh Das became Birbal due to his wit and intelligence.

Students were dressed according to their roles. They delivered their dialogues with perfection and impressed the audience. They presented the whole play in a very systematic manner. Each one of them enjoyed their role. When all the students came together to dance, everyone in the audience enjoyed the dance performance.

The special assembly proved to be a great success and left a smile on everyone’s face.






28.11.14: One Nation Reading Together

A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading. -William Styron


On the 28th of November, QVS once again became an active participant in the annual event - One Nation Reading Together encouraged by Scholastic India. The interesting activity demands a simultaneous reading session of students across India on a particular date and time which solely aims at inculcating purposeful reading habits among students and to familiarize them with the ultimate wonders of books.

In order to make this event more splendid and enjoyable, the school organized a good deal of activities conjoined to the reading session of the students. The idea was to add more meaning and worth to their activity. It proved to be a delightful success owing to the interest displayed by the students.

Activity for classes I and II was ‘The Four Corner’, wherein the four rows of each classroom acted as four corners and played their part in story reading, narration, illustration and identification respectively. The little princesses set an example of fantastic group dynamics and evolved out to be more learned and confident.

Equally intriguing were the reading activities of classes III-V. They commemorated the event by staging a special assembly based on stories of Akbar Birbal. They also read the stories of Akbar Birbal and jotted down the interesting essence of the stories on colourful sheets of paper. The icing on the cake was the conduction of this activity in the open spaces of the school ground giving a free thought to the princesses.

For classes VI-VIII the activity stressed upon drawing a contrast between the inspirational life of Mahatma Gandhi and the legendary Nelson Mandela. The students were provided with ample reading material for the same. They were encouraged to share their views with each other post reading. Our creative and thoughtful queens came up with commendable illustrations of their ideas and displayed them on soft boards in the form of a magazine cover.

Classes IX and X were involved in ‘Peep into Mythology’ activity which required them to read books on Indian mythology which were based on inspirational characters in the history and their great deeds. It was followed by a brain churning session and penning down of description of the most impressive character in the story.

Classes XI and XII had a newspaper reading session and copiously enjoyed reading the vivid columns published in it. They kept their dictionaries close to avoid missing on any important meaning or information. The aim was to apprise them with the fact that in today’s world it’s imperative to be cognizant of current affairs.

With so many activities going on simultaneously ‘out and under’ one roof, the event became a great spectacle and also an enjoyable experience for the queens. They entered the world of books to leave …..never!









27.11.2014: ANNUAL ATHLETIC MEET

“It’s not the will to win that matters—everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”

The importance of sports in the life of a young student is invaluable and goes much further than the basic answer that "it keeps kids off the streets." It does in fact keep kids off the streets, but it also instills lessons that are essential in the life of a student athlete. Sports play a pivotal role in the makeup of a young athlete, especially in the middle school to high school years where student athletes are much more mature and mentally developed. Sports help them in learning values like discipline, responsibility, self confidence, sacrifice, and accountability.

To instill all these qualities in its queens, Queen’s Valley School celebrated its Annual Athlete. For Junior School it was held on 26.11.14 and for Senior School it was held on 27.11.14.To begin with, the Participants from various houses- Courage, Integrity, Peace and Truth, marched smartly, shoulder to shoulder. They lived up to the spirit of sportsmanship and showcased unity, feeling of oneness and team spirit.

Flame lighting is an integral part of every game and is considered to be sacred, as it’s a commemoration and a beginning of a new era. The torch is a symbol of friendship, excellence and respect. Narayani Pathak of class V-D, a gold medalist of CBSE Skating Nationals handed over the torch to Nidhi Dagar of class III-A, another gold medalist of CBSE Skating Nationals.

Parul Adhikari of class XII, the Sports Captain took the oath on the behalf of the assembled athletes, honouring the team spirit of sportsmanship and upholding the glory of sports. Our honourable Principal Ma’am encouraged and enlightened the students with her highly motivational words and declared the meet open.

The series of events started with a spectacular performance by our enigmatic cheer leaders. They mesmerized the spectators with their blissful, energetic and musical performance. It was a perfect amalgamation of physical robustness and energy.

Yoga is a discipline that adds to spiritual growth and involves higher consciousness. It makes us feel more vibrant to perform our daily activities in a better way. It rejuvenates and energizes us and bestows every aspirant the power to control body and mind. Our queens showcased their flexibility and strength through a stirring yoga performance.

Students further showcased their talent with their physical exuberance and synchronized body movements with dumbbells. It was a spectacular display of talent. Our aerobics, judo and gymnastic girls enthralled the audience by partaking in the QVS Fusion with a delightful performance.

Running is a metaphor for life; there is always someone faster than you, always someone slower. All you can do is hang in there, and put your heart into it. There were different events organized for the queens such as- sprint , three legged , hurdle , lemon & spoon, tunnel, thread & bead, pyramid, dumbbell & stepper, wheel barrow, jumping the chair, river crossing race.

Our participants were injected with incalculable energy and stepped ahead boldly. All the participants as well as the spectators turned it into a successful event with their undying spirit and enthusiasm.





26.11.14: Special Assembly – Class IV C

“A Man is known by the company he keeps”

25.11.14: CLASS XI-C SPECIAL ASSEMBLY

“The Canterville Ghost”

Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience, i.e., "learning from experience".


"The Canterville Ghost" is a popular short story by Oscar Wilde, widely adapted for the screen and stage. It was the first of Wilde's stories to be published, appearing in the magazine The Court and Society Review in February 1887.

This is Oscar Wilde's tale of the American family which moved into a British mansion, Canterville Chase, much to the annoyance its tired ghost. The family which refuses to believe in him is in Wilde's way a commentary on the British nobility of the day and on the Americans, too.

On Tuesday, i.e. 25th November, 2014 Class XI-C organised their assembly based on the novel “The Canterville Ghost” by Oscar Wilde. It was the dramatization of the novel.

All students participated in the assembly and displayed exemplary qualities like team work, passion and dedication. Students took pain to ensure that the play entertains the audience as well as keeps the essence of the novel intact. The work was equally divided among all the students. All the main scenes and the theme were included and were presented effectively on stage. The students also prepared a computer presentation for the backdrop. The students came up with very innovative ideas. The whole assembly came out to be a great success. It happened due to everyone’s dedication towards the roles assigned to them, excellent co-ordination and co-operation among the class. The audience was left mesmerized by the assembly.





25.11.14: CLASS XI D SPECIAL ASSEMBLY, SPOOKTACULAR EXTRAVAGANZA: THE CANTERVILLE GHOST

“Act well your part; there all the honour lies.”

- Alexander Pope

In order to inculcate the nuances of theatre based approach in the teaching learning process, Queen’s Valley School adopted an exceedingly innovative and experiential method of teaching the long reading text The Canterville Ghost to the students of class XI. Apart from the rigorous classroom training which involves exhaustive reading of the text and development of high order thinking skills through discussion of the issues inherent in it, theatre was employed as an effective tool to develop the cognitive and perceptive dimensions of students’ learning process.

Oscar Wilde’s tale of the clash of two giant civilizations replete with elements of humour and wit was first converted into a play by the students of class XI D. They took the opportunity enthusiastically and engaged in a detailed research of the text and theatrics alike in order to learn the intricacies and execute them effectively. On November 25, 2014, they enacted the play in the form of a novel in making wherein the novelist Oscar Wilde acted as the Sutradhar and conceived the idea of his novel by creating an embryonic structure for the audience to imagine and visualise the events of the novel. Moreover, the conventional ghost story elements were topsy-turvied on stage in order to generate a satirical impact.

Deriving inspiration from Bertolt Brecht’s ‘Theatre of Instruction’, props were used in a scientific manner to serve as a meta-fictional device in order to consciously and systematically allow for a critical understanding of issues. The so-called imaginary fourth wall between the performers and the audience was collapsed in order to make the learning process more constructive and engaging. The aim of theatre as a medium of circulating ideas and enable learning through interaction and experience was thus achieved.

The use of elaborate power point presentations, appropriate sound effects, spectacular props and costumes complemented with commendable dialogue delivery and artistic novelty was made successful through effective team work and the final performance left the audience captivated and impressed. The event thus concluded in the spirit of Thomas Jefferson:

‘Let us in education dream of an aristocracy of achievement arising out of a democracy of opportunity’






24.11.14: Class IX Inter Class Activity

"Ahimsa is the highest duty. Even if we cannot practice it in full, we must try to understand its spirit and refrain as far as is humanly possible from violence".
– Mahatma Gandhi


“I hate race discrimination most intensely and in all its manifestations. I have fought it all during my life; I fight it now, and will do so until the end of my days.”
— Nelson Mandela

Queen’s Valley School promoted the ideas of Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela in a form of an Inter –class activity by preparing the biographies of two eminent personalities and champions for justice in the world on 24th November, 2014. This competition cum project was taken as an activity under the action plan of British Council for ISA 2014. Class IX students not only embellished the small booklets but propagated the nonviolent ideas and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

The legacies of Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi transcend time, in terms of the impact they each had on civil rights and equality. They were men of different times, yet they drew upon similar principles in their quest to help humanity. While their causes were distinct to each of their homelands, they inspired similar reverence among followers, eventually standing as inspiration worldwide.

The students shared the virtues of Mahatma Gandhi for which he is remembered in the world. They are non-violence, truth, love and fraternity. The queens also shared Nelson Mandela’s civil disobedience against South African racial policies while they read out the famous excerpts from their life history. The competition infused a spark for genuine education as Mahatma Gandhi said, “Genuine education does not consist of cramming a lot of information and numbers in mind. Nor it lies in passing the examination by reading a number of books, but it lies in developing character. It is a real education which inculcates internal virtues (values) in human beings. If you can develop such virtues, it will be the best education.”





24.11.14: CLASS XI-A SPECIAL ASSEMBLY

“The Canterville Ghost”

A personification and dramatization is the most novel and effectual way of learning and experiencing, where we have the liberty to step into the shoes of a fictional personality. The Humanities stream of Class XI performed a dramatization of the classic novella of Oscar Wilde, “The Canterville Ghost” on 24th November, 2014. The student of Class XI-A perform a modern adaptation of the hilarious inverted ghost story.

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with grasses waving above one’s head and listen to silence. To have no yesterday and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to beat peace.” (Oscar Wilde)

The drama was titled, “The Canterville Ghost” (2014), where a 21st century ultra-modern family encounters a 16th century, ancient ghost and what ensures after that is a hilarious clash of civilizations. But the story also examines the disparity between the public self and the private self, a theme to which Wilde would return again in his later writings. In "The Canterville Ghost," Wilde draws upon fairy tales, Gothic novels, and stories of Americans abroad to shape his comic ghost story.

Being a modern adaptaion, there were elements of the current world including gadgets and gizmos, the World Wide Web, the rampant use of selfies and ice bucket challenge. We get to know about the ghost from class XI-A’s own viewpoint. He displays emotions of bravery, fear, sadness, and depression and weakness. He shares some of these feelings with Virginia, who he thinks is different from all the other members of the family. He also tells her about his wife, Lady Eleanor de Canterville, and Virginia listens to him patiently. The students, both actors and audience immensely enjoyed the Special Assembly.





22.11.14: CLASS IX-X Workshop on Career Counselling by Mr. Jitin Chawla

“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.”


Every child is trying to find his/her identity while at the same time trying not to be the odd one out.Keeping this goal in mind, Queen’s Valley School organised an interactive career counselling session for the students of classes 9th and 10th and their parents on 22nd November, 2014. The resource person was Mr. Jitin Chawla, an eminent educationist, whose area of expertise is career counselling, leadership training and educational systems’ planning.

Mr. Chawla’s aim was to lay out a huge spectrum of opportunities for the students to choose from. He elaborated upon a range of career choices in humanities, science and commerce. For each career, he provided his audience with a job description and the kind of personality that fits particular professions. The students were also exposed to opportunities in a range of professional fields from fashion designing, law and hotel management to business management, bio-technology and environmental sciences, covering not only the more conventional careers such as the civil services, law, engineering and medicine, as well as a host of new options in event management, modelling, mobile apps design, film animation, music technology, web design, fashion merchandising, social media marketing and many others.

He further provided information about various graduate courses and named a few institutions that offer them. He also encouraged the students to explore their skills, values and personality that would help clarify what interests them, what they are skilled at and how they can approach work in a much more efficient way.

Mr. Chawla guided the participants through a host of interactive activities and discussions and discussed career planning strategies, career planning beliefs and myths and individual career planning needs.

The workshop concluded with a question-answer session. It was an insightful experience for the parents and the students to attend this talk and extend their horizons on the pressing concern, namely higher studies. Mr. Chawla’s humorous inserts made the exercise very lively and enjoyable. It was an absolute delight to watch Mr. Chawla reach out to the anxious young minds and advise them on the right course to take and inspire them to aspire for greater heights in life, thereby making them DREAM BIG.

13.11.14: CLASS IV-A, ‘The Most Valuable Things are Often Disregarded’

“The only true disability is the inability to accept and respect differences.”

Comic Strip Mama

Values have major influence on a person's behavior and attitude and serve as broad guidelines in all situations. For humans, some things have always been more important than others. That is why we value people, ideas, activities and objects according to their significance in our life.

At QVS, we attempted to make our queens aware of the values, a special assembly was organized by class IV- A on the topic ‘The Most Valuable Things are Often Disregarded’ on 13-11-14. The Assembly comprised of a well rehearsed skit. Our queens were teeming with confidence. There was no place for anxiety or nervousness on the faces of the girls while performing the skit.

11.11.14: Special Assembly – Class III A

SINGHASAN BATTISSI

Respect your guests
Receive their benediction,
It’ll enhance humility and affection.

At Queen’s Valley, we believe that the school assembly is one of the most essential facets of a school's curriculum. It not only nurtures interpersonal relations but also leads to overall development of the students. It is a good way of inculcating the qualities like devotion, dedication, team work in them. Moreover, it makes children confident and helps them to conquer their stage fear. A special class assembly of class III-A was organised on Tuesday, 11th November, 2014 on the theme- ‘Singhasan Battissi’.

‘Singhasan Battissi’, the tale of the throne link to the lost throne of Vikramaditya which king Bhoja, the Paramara king of Dhar, found after many centuries. King Bhoja tries to ascend the throne of Vikramaditya. Thirty two female statues which adorn that throne challenge him to ascend the throne only if he would show magnanimity equal to Vikramaditya as revealed by a tale that each statue would narrate. This leads to 32 attempts (and 32 tales) of Bhoja to ascend the throne and in each case Bhoja acknowledges his inferiority. Finally, the statues let him ascend the throne when they are pleased with his humility.

The assembly was concluded with a valuable lesson that we should treat our guests like Gods. We should be proud that we belong to a place, where our stories, traditions and culture teach us to treat our guests like Gods.

Our Queens looked beautiful in their eye catching costumes. They gave a mesmerizing performance. The assembly proved a good way to showcase their talent. Their performance was felicitated through a big round of applause by the audience.





10.11.14: CLASS VIII INTER-CLASS DEBATE COMPETITION

“It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.”

One of the most important educational objective of QVS is to teach critical thinking skills to its queens, and nothing else does it better than strategic debates.

Debate as a critical skill is more important now because we live in an age of information, where information is power, and debate is all about how to turn information into power. Through debates students learn to look at information and separate out the good from the bad, the relevant from the irrelevant. It helps students become better critical thinkers and communicators, improves their social interactions and personal expression. Debators tend to become citizens in the real sense of the world-informed, active, participating, a force to be harnessed for the betterment of all.

Keeping all the above points in mind QVS organized an Inter-Class debate competition for the students of class 8. The topic for the same was ‘E-ticketing has been effective in reducing corruption from booking system’. No two people agree completely on things. You probably cannot find two people on the planet who hold the same opinion on everything. Likewise, our queens also presented their different point of view on the given topic. Their arguments engrossed the audience completely. The students put their best foot forward and participated enthusiastically in the competition. They learnt how to express their ideas fluently and that too confidently. The judges had a tough time selecting the winners as all the participants were extremely good.

The following were declared as the winners:
NAME CLASS POSITION
ADITI BHATTACHARJEE VIII-C I
NALINI SINGH VIII-A II
RASHMI DAHIYA VIII-A III






10.11.14: CLASS PRE PRIMARY ENGLISH CALLIGRAPHY COMPETITION

“The art of writing is the most miraculous of all things man has devised.”
By Carlyle

Handwriting is a means of expressing language, just like speech and it also leaves a lasting trace. Some call it 'Language by Hand'. It is a physical way of expressing thoughts and ideas and a means of communicating with others. It is a skill which involves linguistic, cognitive, perceptual and motor components, all of which have to be coordinated in an integrated fashion.

Keeping in view the benefits of good handwriting, a calligraphy competition was conducted for the little Queens of Pre Primary on 10th November 2014. All the Queens participated in this competition with great zeal and enthusiasm as they got an opportunity and a platform to showcase their best work.

This competition encouraged them to develop a good handwriting and enlightened their li’l minds with the benefits of a good handwriting. It was difficult to choose the winners of the competition but some of them wrote more beautifully than the other Queens. The winners from each class are:

05.11.14: Workshop on E-Taxation

E Commerce makes it easier for business to be conducted without creating the “permanent establishment” that would otherwise subject a seller to tax on income. Information Technology now pervades our lives. Everyone, including the tax authorities is trying to cope, and the tax auditor cannot be excluded.

The overall aim of e – taxation is to replace cumbersome manual, bureaucratic service systems with collaborative, efficient, process driven and secure online delivery. The school conducted a workshop for the students of class XI to know more about e-taxation in the school premises. In India e-taxation and e-filing of income tax was introduced in September 2004.

E-taxation is the taxation authorities’ response to their inherent desire to leverage technology to provide a better standard of service delivery. It includes on line filing and assessment of tax returns, electronic funds transfer to enable taxes to be issued across the internet, and web based information portals for use in educating taxpayers and researchers on taxation issues and supports comprehensive policy decision making by different government departments. Students were given information regarding the various types of taxes, the process of taxation, its purpose and other relevant details.

If tax is levied directly on personal or corporate income then it is a direct tax and on the other hand if tax is levied indirectly on personal or corporate income then its an indirect tax. E- Taxation has made the taxation process simpler. It is convenient, provides fast refunds and give tax payers instant acknowledgement of receipt.

Students gained awareness about e-taxation. The workshop helped the students about the purpose and significance of taxation and how e-taxation has made the process simpler.
