31.10.14 - Class VIII Inter-Class Puppet Show

“Perhaps more than other art forms, puppetry invites (even forces) the audience to infuse characters and action with their own meaning.”

Puppetry is an excellent tool for communication and a great way for students to learn as they enact a given topic. Students have to research the topic, prepare for the activity and think on their feet as they practice public speaking. Keeping this in mind an Inter-class puppet show was presented by the students of class VIII of Queen’s Valley School on 31.10.14 in order to stimulate the children’s imagination, encourage creative play, and learn through play and initiate communication.

Each class was divided into groups and the students prepared a puppet show on a story of their choice. It was an interesting experience to watch the queens come up with interesting stories and a mesmerizing show. The panel of judges judged the queens on the basis of originality, presentation, fluency, pronunciation and degree of appeal to the audience. The competition inculcated confidence and good speaking skills in the participants.

31.10.14 - National Unity Day @ QVS

India is culturally, linguistically and religiously the most diverse country in the world. The culture of India has been shaped by its long history, unique geography and diverse demography. India’s languages, religions, dance forms, music, architecture and customs differ from place to place within the country, but nevertheless possess a commonality.

Focussing on the unified diversity of the nation, Queen’s Valley School celebrated ‘Rashtriya Ekta Diwas’ or ‘National Unity Day’ on 31st October’14, commemorating the 139th birth anniversary of the “Iron Man of India”, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The students and teachers gathered in the school ground to take a pledge to maintain the spirit of unification of our country that was made possible by the vision and actions of Sardar Patel, independent India's first Home Minister. He is credited with persuading more than 500 princely states to accede to the Indian Union post-independence. The school Principal, Dr. N. Sharma, enlightened the students about Sardar Patel’s contribution towards the country that has deemed him a true national hero in every sense. She also educated the students on the significance of the occasion and how the idea of unity will never be obsolete for a country like India and the ‘Run for Unity’ initiative was just a start.

After administering the pledge of unification and internal security, the students took laps of the sports ground to mark the ‘Run for Unity’. It was an initiative to reaffirm the inherent strength and resilience of our nation to withstand the actual and potential threats to the unity, integrity and security of our country.

It was a delight to watch the queens come together and mark the run as a united group. They proved that beyond all the differences each one may project, they stand united and continue to abide by the popular motto of ‘Unity in Diversity’.

17.10.14: CLASS VI-D

"Little girl only one of a kind…
Save her from a world of sublime”

Celebrated as daughters, mothers and sisters, the girl is lost to these roles and the individual behind these roles takes a backseat. It is an agony that in a population of such huge proportions, we can barely count the number of women achievers. Why is it so? Do we as a society empower every woman to realize her potential? Are we ready to do justice? Do we listen to her, believe in her capabilities and support her decisions? These questions have remained unanswered since ages!

Around the world millions up on millions of girls continue to remain sidelined. October 11th, International Day of the Girl Child, looks to throw light on the issues and awareness about the troubles of the girl child across the globe. The fight for equality is far from new, and while historical battles have been fought and won across the globe, they are far from over. Around the globe the girl-child suffers needlessly, as daily struggles are increased by the relentless hold of history and cultural taboos. The ‘International Day of the Girl Child’ promotes girls' human rights, highlights gender inequalities that remain between girls & boys and addresses the various forms of discrimination & abuse suffered by girls around the world.

To be born a girl child is a unique blessing. In a male dominant country like ours, it becomes imperative to celebrate the existence of girls in the society. On 17th October 2014, the students of QVS presented a Special Assembly on the ‘International Day of the Girl Child’. The Queens of class VI D presented a dance drama and very effectively highlighted women issues like female foeticide and eve teasing. The Queens performed on the foot tapping beats of ‘Rakht charitra’ which showcased how a woman is treated in a male dominated society and how helpless she becomes sometimes in the face of crime. The picturisation of the current state of girls was very overwhelming. The Queens ended the assembly with a dance performance on ‘O ri chiriya’ giving everyone a hope that the situation can be changed and every girl is capable of fighting against the evil of discrimination. The message that every girl is special and should be treated so was very beautifully captured. It was a commendable performance by the queens which was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.





20.10.14: CLASS X Inter-Class Paper Mache Tray

Papier Mache (literally meaning "chewed papier") has gained popularity worldwide because of its versatility. It is a term that has been applied to innumerable three-dimensional objects having a papier core.

Papier was invented in China in the second century AD, and at about this time, people began to use papier mache as a good way to re-use the material which was then expensive and hardly accessible. An important advantage of papier mache is that it can be very strong yet very light. Historically, it has been made in a wide range of applications, like decorative profiles and mouldings, boats, soldiers’ helmets, buildings and furniture. It was the French craftsmen who first recognized the great potential of papier mache, making decoratives and imitating stucco and plaster work. They continue to be used in puppet building, including marionettes, hand-puppets, rod-puppets etc., as well as large sculptures like carnival floats. It can also be seen in the colourful products of many folk traditions.

To familiarise the students with this ancient recycling craft, Queen’s Valley School organised a competition called ‘Papier Mache Tray’ for the students of Class X on 20.10.14. It was an absolute delight to watch these young minds explore their creativity and create beautiful masterpieces by making judicious use of a myriad of art materials and recycled objects. The students used different types of paint like oil paints, watercolours, gouache, poster paints and acrylics along with textiles, bound with an adhesive, such as glue, starch, or wallpaper paste. The objective of this activity was to provide the students with a sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment on appraising their handiwork. The activity was well enjoyed and gave the students a chance to socialize with peers in a group setting and enabled them to follow step-by-step directions with demonstration.

18.10.14 - STUDENTS’ COUNCIL SELECTION AND INVESTITURE CEREMONY

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and
shows the way.”
- John C. Maxwell

At Queen’s Valley School, it is our constant enterprise to ensure that all dimensions of the prescribed as well as the hidden curriculum are delivered to all students at every level through various learning experiences. The process of selecting the students’ council is an aspect of this multifaceted goal. A democratic body like the students’ council voices the concerns and opinions of students, and empowers them with a sense of liberty accompanied with responsibility. A good students’ council introduces activities and projects which act as testing ground for novel ideas which in turn, have the potential to lead the way to constructive change by balancing the long-term initiatives of past with the impending needs of future.

Keeping this goal as a prerequisite to enhance the teaching-learning process, the school prepared itself for a highly unique way of selecting the council this academic session. In order to prepare students to participate more fully in all facets of democratic life, extensive sessions based on interviews, general discussions and problem solving tasks at all levels were conducted. Students were filtered for various posts through a well-defined parliamentary process conducted by teachers. The final round was conducted in the form of an extensive interview session by the venerable Principal and a team of teachers. The exercise empowered the students to intensively participate in group decision making, negotiation and constructive social life.

In the words of Arnold H. Glasow, ‘A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.’ In this spirit, the selection process helped to inculcate the values of responsibility, community work, academic integrity and exemplary moral conduct in students. Democracy was thus effectively employed as both as a goal and a method of instruction.

The Investiture Ceremony held on the October 18, 2014 for seniors and on the 21st October for the juniors, marked not just the formal announcement of giving away of titles to the newly convened students’ council but also reasserted the belief that the reigns of maintaining a disciplined environment have been entrusted in capable and competent hands. The ceremony was a significant step towards the fulfillment of our aspiration to see our students evolve into responsible individuals- individuals who value dignity of labour and display firmness of mind.

The ceremony commenced with the felicitation of the members of the students’ council by the venerable Principal. This was followed by the students taking an oath of sincerity, dedication and transparency in discharging their duties. The event concluded with the Principal’s words of wisdom as she motivated the members of the council to channelise their unbounded spirit and enthusiasm in a deeply engaging and fruitful manner.

The proud members of the Students’ Council are as follows:

17.10.14 - INTER-CLASS TETRA PACK PURSE MAKING COMPETITION

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”

This proverb perfectly expresses that a worthless thing for someone can prove valuable for another. We generally throw away the materials that can be reused or recycled and hence can prove worthy again. Infact, there are number of valuable assets waiting for us in the garbage bin. Undoubtedly, creativity plays a major role in reusing the trash and converting it into new products of higher environmental value. It not only proves a boon for the environment but also saves financial resources.

Keeping the importance of turning trash into treasure through creative ways, we, at QVS, organized an inter- class ‘Tetra Pack Purse making Competition’ for Queens of IX class on 17 October 2014. Our Queens had to reuse waste tetra packs to create a beautiful purse.

Our Queens participated enthusiastically and their creativity knew no bounds. They got an opportunity to showcase their skills. The purses were decorated beautifully and had practical use as well. By turning trash to treasure, the Queens learnt new skills which are eco- friendly as well. They got an opportunity to learn from one another.

15.10.14 - CLASS III INTER-CLASS MASK MAKING COMPETITION

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.
- Dunbar

Masks have been used since antiquity for both ceremonial and practical purposes. These aesthetically sublime and culturally functional symbols are used for their expressive power and work beyond all stipulated geo-political boundaries of the world. They portray the various moods that get embossed on the faces as reflections of the various emotions and states of mind that an individual goes through. Experiences of emotions - love, anger, hate, fury, joy, fear, disgust, sorrow and the universal body language depicting these emotions has been sought by man to be given form through masks.India has a huge range of decorative, festive and ceremonial masks related to the vast repertoire of myths, legends and folklore, which revolve around idolized deities, valiant heroes, and fierce demons.

Moreover, the staging of the epic Ramayana as Ramlila through masked depictions in a series of special assemblies at school captured the psyche of students and thus a fantastic platform was built up for the activity. The activity classrooms seemed to be the perfect assortment of western and Indian cultural legacy. The colourful masks prepared by the students were commended and evaluated by the respective art teachers and were categorised into the following winners:

14.10.14 - CLASS VII TINKLE WITH CHIMES

“Surround yourself with the music of life, and you cannot help but sing its song!”
- Sue Krebs

Diwali is one of the most awaited festivals of the year. It symbolizes that age-old culture of India which teaches to vanquish ignorance that subdues humanity and to drive away darkness that engulfs the light of knowledge. Every year the dark night of Diwali, is lighted by colourful lights, diyas and candles. Homes are decorated, sweets are distributed by everyone and thousands of lamps are lit to create a world of fantasy. It is one of the most glamorous and important festivals celebrated in India. It is enthusiastically enjoyed by people of every religion. It creates an atmosphere of joy and festivity all around.

On Diwali, doorways are hung with torans of mango leaves and marigolds. Rangolis are drawn with different coloured powders to welcome guests. The traditional motifs are often linked with auspicious symbols of good luck. Oil diyas are arranged in and around the house. Because of these flickering lamps, the festival has acquired its name: Deepawali or Diwali meaning ‘rows of lamps’. However, to have a magnificent lightening in the sky, fire-shots are lighted which are pleasing to the eyes but cause not just air pollution but also noise pollution. The sound created on bursting of these crackers is deafening and thus, must be avoided. In order to have a joyful Diwali, the queens of class VII created wind chimes using waste material on 14th October 2014. The cheerful sound of wind chimes can easily be replaced with the disturbing sound of the crackers. Wind chimes are used not only to decorate the houses but also for their musical qualities and for bringing peace and prosperity. Thus, to sensitize our queens to celebrate Diwali in this form, the competition ‘Tinkle with Chimes’ was held. The queens used waste material like old bottles, cans, keys, straws, bangles, etc. The wind chimes were painted colourfully and decorated beautifully. The rhythmic sound of these wind chimes was soothing to the ears.

The following were declared as the winners:
NAME CLASS POSITION
Vani VII-D I
Dishita Kumari VII-A II
Jiya Adhikari VII-D III
Vishakha Goel VII-B
