- John Henrik Clarke

Heritage refers to anything inherited from the past. It means legacy of physical artifacts, tangible and intangible attributes of a group or society, it can be culture, tradition, customs, practices and virtues inherited from the ancestors.

Heritage protection and preservation is an endeavor that seeks to preserve, conserve and protect buildings, objects, landscapes or other artifacts of historical significance. The aim of heritage protection is to ensure that the cultural significance of heritage places is retained for future generations to treasure.

To encourage heritage conservation among school students, a poem recitation competition on ‘Protecting Our Heritage’ was organized for class IV on 27 August 2015 in the Cultural Hall. The students were judged on the basis of their content, fluency, pronunciation and presentation.

The effort of our queens was praiseworthy. The event acted as a confidence booster for our queens. It was a learning experience for participants as well as for the audience.

25.08.2015: CLASS VI INTER CLASS QUIZ COMPETITION INTANGIBLE CULTURE AND HERITAGE OF THE WORLD

Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.

- Jawaharlal Nehru

What is Intangible Cultural Heritage?
Heritage does not end at monuments or collection of objects of arts. It also includes traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants, such as oral traditions, performing arts, religious and cultural festivals and traditional crafts. This Intangible Cultural Heritage, by its very nature, is fragile and needs protection. Developing understanding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of different communities, such as in India, helps the process of an international, inter-cultural dialogue and promotes, in the long run, international peace and security.

Culture of the mind must be subservient to the heart.
- Mahatma Gandhi

As we begin to realize that every different type of music has its own rhythm, life, language and heritage, we realize how life changes and we learn how to be more open and adaptive to what is around us. The same remains true for art,dance,theatre, festivals etc.

Keeping this in mind, a QUIZ was organized for all the sections of class VI. A preliminary round was held and four students from each class were selected for the final round which was held on

25 August`15 in the Cultural Hall.

Selected students from each House competed in various rounds viz.

- Gracie Gold

Roller Skating is a lifetime fitness sport, well-suited for both children and adults. In addition to building cardiovascular fitness, it contributes to the development of balance and coordination.

21.08.2015 : CLASS IX Inter-Class Competition- Culinary Delights - Multi Cuisines of India

‘We first eat with our eyes and then with our mouths’.

It is said that children can be moulded the way you want. Taking a cue from this, Queen’s Valley School offered its Queen’s a different ‘menu’ all together. Apart from the daily routine of assigning kids with homework and class work, children got an opportunity to learn the art of cooking. A competition ‘Culinary Delights Multi Cuisines of India’ was organised in the school for class IX on 21st August 2015.

Cooking techniques and ingredients vary widely across the world, reflecting unique environmental, economic and cultural traditions. Cooks themselves also vary widely in skill and training..

Young master chefs of class IX,had to choose anIndian state and organise different stalls to display the dishes of that state. The states which were represented during the competition were New Delhi, Punjab, Gujarat and Maharashtra. Catering to the tastes and cuisines of India, the Queens prepared a variety of dishes which included salad, starters, main course meal, papri, desserts etc. Participants were judged on the basis of hospitality, taste of dishes, decoration of stalls, and number of items as well as presentation of the dish- keeping in mind that if the food was decorated well.

Activities in cooking enable the students to become independent in thought and work. This also builds an attitude of sharing among students. When they cook, they have to share and similarly while eating they share their food. Organising various stalls will help to develop their organisational skills.

Participants were judged on the basis of hospitality, taste of dishes, decoration of stalls, and number of items as well as presentation of the dish‐ keeping in mind that if the food was decorated well, it added a different flavour to the food.

20.08.15 : BASKETBALL ZONALS@QVS

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
- Phil Jackson

Basketball is a team sport. The fundamentals include working on the little things that make you better -- no matter what team or coach one plays for -or what offense or defense one is running. For example, by working on the fundamentals of shooting, one will get better no matter what team we play for. The fundamentals of shooting include proper foot alignment, leg bend, hand position, arm angle, and follow through. These are some of the little things that make a difference. The same goes for lays ups, foot work, post play, passing, jab steps, jump stops, pivoting, blocking out, and so on.

“Don’t give up; don’t ever give up!” – These words are probably some of the most powerful words ever said or written. This motto was a part of Queen’s Valley for – Zone 21 District South West B (Basketball) through and through.

The Zonal Basketball matches 2015-16 commenced from 17th August 2015 and continued till 20th August 2015 at QUEEN’S VALLEY School. On the first day of the competition all-Girl matches were played in all the three categories, Sub Junior, Junior and Senior.

32 schools participated in this competition and competed against each other to win the crown of Zone Champion across the various categories. The opening match of the tournament was played between D.P.S, Dwarka and R.D. Rajpal School, Dwarka. The tournament was inaugurated by Deputy Director of Education, Ms. Veena Tandon in the presence of S.P.E, Ms. Sushma Bhatiya, Convenor, Mr. S.K. Singhand Joint Secretary, Mr. N.L. Meena.

The teams looked equally balanced at the start but as the game progressed D.P.S. stole the show with an exciting display of dribbling, passing and shooting, to eventually clinch the match with a score of 20-4 at close!

The host team i.e. Queen’s Valley School made it’s own day, winning as they did and advancing to the next round of the competition. And finally winning Sub-Junior Girls(Runner-up title) and as Winners of the Junior (Girls title).








20.08.2015 : If you think its ok to reuse disposable water bottles, think again

You must be refilling your disposable water bottle every morning to be carried for the school. Saves time and money, right?
Well this might be true, I am sure majority are not aware of the toll it is taking on their health.

Believe it or not! plastic bottles contain Bisphenol(BPA)the chemical used to make plastic hard and clear. BPA causes reproductive problems in females, infertility, neurological diseases, early puberty in girls and even cancer, specially breast and uterine cancer.

BPA is an endocrine disruptor that interferes with body's natural hormonal messaging system. Plastic beverage bottles are made from PET(Polyehylene Terephthalate) polymer. Phthalates which is also an endocrine disruptor is linked to a wide range of developmental and reproductive effects and even tumour.

These chemicals continue to leach out into the water they hold. Reuse of these plastic bottles may leach DEHP (Di‐ Ethylhexyl Phthalate) or styrene ,the other probable human carcinogens.

Repeated use of such disposable plastic bottles which get dinged up through normal wear and tear and while being washed increases the chance that chemicals will leak out of the tiny cracks and crevices that develop over time. Even bacteria may settle down and can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. Hard to imagine but the truth is really shocking!

It is worth paying attention to the type of plastic your water bottle is made up of. Choose wise alternatives like durable, reusable stainless steel water bottle. Make sure your water bottle is safe enough to quench your thirst.





19.08.2015 : Q.V.S. TABLE TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP 2015

Education without sport is incomplete. The significance of sports in a child’s life cannot be overlooked. It facilitates the development of a child’s mind and body. It fosters team spirit, discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, sacrifice, accountability and encourages the development of social skills. For some children, frequenting a sports arena provides them with the opportunity to meet other people of the same age and experience a healthy exchange of ideas and interests. Sports also allow children to meet new friends and help them to learn how to relate to others, whether it is a team mate or an opponent. Practicing sport also helps the child to become increasingly autonomous and attain higher self-esteem. It instills confidence to resolve problems and face challenges.

Keeping this in mind Queen's Valley School organised an inter-class table tennis competition. The competition was conducted on 19th of August 2015. The queens participated with great zeal and enthusiasm. They maintained the sportsman spirit throughout the game. The spectators enjoyed the game and appreciated the effort by cheering their friends. The Queens lauded the participants with great zeal and vigor. The results of the competition are:

Group A (III-V)

19.08.2015: Class VIII Inter Class – Caricature Competition

“Everyone has talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it.”

At QVS, we aid our queens to muster this courage within. We believe in facilitating our queens to pour out their talent, energy and love, because only then is there room for more gifts to flow in.

We at QVS believe in developing artistic traits in our young artists and to kindle imaginative flair of the students, an Inter- Class Caricature Competition was held for the students of class VIII on 19 th August, 2015.The topic of the Caricature was ‘ Social Figures of the World’.

Walt Disney, described caricature as the language of art that develops the unnatural but seemingly natural anatomy for humans. It is a description of a person using exaggeration of some characteristics and oversimplification of others in order to create a comic or bizarre effect solely for entertainment.

Our Queens participated whole heartedly in the Caricature competition which was celebrated as part of British Council activity in the ‘Heritage Month’. They exhibited their creativity in their art files. Students took part in the event with joy and enthusiasm and enjoyed the multihued activity. Our queens made beautiful caricatures of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Angelina Jolie, Diana, Princess of Wales, Nelson Mandela, Dr. B.R.Ambedkar, David Beckham, Oprah Winfrey, etc. which were imaginatively displayed.

The competition gave the queens a platform to showcase their talent. Their coherent and contemplative caricatures were appreciated by the judges. The caricatures were judged on the basis of resemblance, drawing exploration through sketching and reflection.

18.08.2015 : CLASS III Rivers of the World (Show and Tell Competition)

Time is like a river. You can’t touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.

We at Queen’s Valley School believe in developing our students’ vocabulary and public speaking skill. As a part of this effort and keeping the theme ‘Rivers of the World’ in mind a, ‘Show and Tell Competition’ was organized in the Cultural Hall for classes III. The young queens attired themselves as different rivers and presented their views on the rivers of India as well as Rivers of world etc. This not only challenged their creativity but knowledge and speaking skills as well. The queens spoke confidently and the purpose of sensitizing them to this natural resource was met due to this activity.

A preliminary round for the same took place on 18 August 2015 and the best two were chosen from each class. The selected students were given the opportunity to speak before a cheering audience and the esteemed judges. The queens spoke with extraordinary confidence and made it difficult for the judges to decide the winners. Their efforts and participation was appreciated by all. The best ones were chosen as winners.

18.08.2015 : CLASS X Quiz on Politics

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors."
- Plato

Most discussed yet least understood, politics is commonly interpreted as a dirty game. The reason why politics appears so is because of largely ignorant citizens who have chosen the wrong people into this serious business, not game. It is therefore important for young people to learn about politics so they can avoid being mindless sheep herded by their masters.

In order to groom our queens into responsible and vigilant citizens, who understand the process of governance and dare to question and change things that are wrong, it is important to make them aware of what politics is all about, especially in India.

With this objective, we at QVS, conducted an inter‐ class quiz on ‘Politics’ for our Class X students, who in a few years will be turning voters (‘responsible ones’- is what we want them to be).

After the preliminary round on 11th August 2015, four students from each section of class X were chosen for the final quiz on 18th August. There were a total of five rounds, with four questions each for each round. Questions were based on important international political events, the Constitution of India, famous international and Indian politicians and some situational questions involving political thinking.

The finalists had prepared themselves with great sincerity to make it a successful event. The very disciplined student audience remained involved till the last question and kept encouraging and cheering for their respective classes all throughout. To sum it up, it was a successful event with a fulfilled objective.

The winners:

14.08.2015 : Class XI-XII “Inter class Essay Writing Competition: Renaissance in Hindi Literature”

“One equal temper of heroic hearts, strong in will to strive, to seek, to find and not to yield”
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

With an attempt to explore and nourish the talents of the students, QVS introduced an essay writing competition for class XI-XII on 14th August, 2015. “Renaissance in Hindi Literature was aimed at demonstrating the writing skills, as well as expression of the students’ outlook on Hindi Literature. Renaissance is basically considered as an inspiration from the past and planning to rebuild the future. The renaissance in Hindi literature crafted a whole fresh diction to the Hindi literary works with its poise and rhythm.

Renaissance in Indian literature includes several significant creative works of renowned authors. Indian literature as a whole experienced a new beginning with the Hindu Renaissance in the beginning of mid 19th century. Mostly centred in the Bengal province, eminent authors like Rabindranath Tagore, Sarat Chandra Chatterjee and Bankim Chandra Chatterjee contributed significantly in the renaissance in Indian literature by establishing a literary genre of the nation. One of the notable works of the period, Kamayani by Jaishankar Prasad, a perfect amalgamation of knowledge, action & desires of life represented the spirit of Renaissance. Nirala's style of verse in Anaamika & Parimal induced revolution in his time & accented his protest against social exploitation. In India, during the last few decades a new phase has been witnessed prominently and markedly sweeping through all literary output as an impact of the renaissance. It is the change in the language of the writer. Morality is rapidly changing, with growing urbanisation and industrialisation. Scientific temper is in the air and science fiction has become an absorbing new field. But through this competiton students expressed their views and ideas and became aware about their social and moral responsibilities.

The winners:

10.08.2015 : REPORT ON ROLE PLAY THEME: FREEDOM FIGHTERS

“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

A freedom fighter is a person engaged in a resistance movement against what they believe to be an oppressive and illegitimate government.

Presently the world’s largest democracy with the longest written constitution, India, has been a free and independent nation only since 1947. India lived under the colonial rule British Raj for nearly 200 years.

After being ruled by the British East India Company since 1600, the First war of Independence took place in 1857. This marked the initiation of the Indian Freedom Struggle. The struggle for freedom wasn’t demanded or fought for in a single day but it took 90 years for the country to regain its political independence. It was a mass based movement where people from all parts of India took part. Hundreds of freedom fighters campaigned against foreign domination and helped in getting the country freed from British rule. And it was because of the efforts and great sacrifices made by these freedom fighters, that today we are living in a free nation.

To make our coming generation aware of the freedom fighters, their ideologies and their sacrifices, a role play competition on ’Freedom Fighters’ was organized for the Queens of class V. The preliminary round was conducted on 10th August in the class rooms where children spoke on the chosen character. The final round was organized on 20th August in the school’s cultural hall, where children came dressed up as the character chosen by them and presented themselves as the same. It was a learning experience for everyone present there.

The Queens mesmerized everyone with their confidence, costume and presentation skills. Although all the participants won the appreciation of the judges but there were a few who were selected as the winners.

They are:
NAME CLASS POSITION
AAISHA SHOEB V E FIRST POSITION
ANANYA GUPTA V F SECOND POSITION
SIYA TRIPATHY V B
SHREEN SHARMA V E THIRD POSITION

This gives a boost to their creativity. The competition was held on 3rd of August 2015 and the theme was ’My Family and friends’. The queens spoke about their favourite family member or friend. It was an emotional moment when the queens shared their sweet experiences and thoughts about their brothers with whom they fight on trivialissues.

13.08.2015 : INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION

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

A human being is believed to lead his life in the true sense, only when he is liberal to express his thoughts. Freedom is an important component of a civilized society which ensures equal rights to its citizens irrespective of factors like caste, creed or gender. But it is rightly said that freedom is not gained, but won. Each imminent generation bears the responsibility to harbour their independence with an incessant endeavour to safeguard it.

Indian independence was etched on the pages of history after a long struggle of over a century. It emerged after millions of courageous souls sacrificed themselves for their motherland. To salute this spirit of independence the queens of QVS painted the sky in tricoloured hues on the morning of 13th August 2015 to mark Independence Day celebrations at the school with a cultural programme. Gaiety and patriotic fervour marked the zealous and colourful performance by the students.

The programme was graced by the venerable presence of school chairman Shri S.K. Sachdeva, school manager Dr.Chaddha, respected members of the managing committee Mrs. Kiran Gambhir and Dr. Maheshwari. The guests were escorted to the venue by the princesses displaying their patriotic fervor on the beats of foottapping music. They were formally presented with a token of affection from the QVS family.

QVS has a firm belief in cultivating love for the soil of India. The programme commenced on a spiritual note by paying veneration to the Almighty and to thank Him for sending us to this land of martyrs. The prayer song spoke of an inspirational and positive outlook as all our troubles seem trivial when we assert our faith in Him. It was followed by flag hoisting by honourable Chairman Shri S.K. Sachdeva. The fluttering tricoloured flag successfully conjured patriotic emotions among the spectators. He then motivated the audience with his appealing words. He requested the students to utilize their education in the right path and honour the country of their birth.

Thereafter, the students came up with a well‐rehearsed and lively performance on the stage which not only displayed their patriotic zeal but also displayed their faith in their motherland. A compilation of patriotic songs and power packed performance marked the show.

Deep in our Heart we do believe that we shall overcome some day.... These stimulating and igniting words, embedded in contemporary music, touched each and every heart in the audience.It was also the theme of the day. It conveyed that the multi‐faceted youth of today is empowered with knowledge to take the nation to unprecedented heights.

The programme culminated on a grand note when tricoloured balloons were released by the guests. These carried along a part of the enthusiasm of the day, visible along the corridors of QVS, to sprinkle it on others who were out of its peripheries.

A vote of thanks was proposed in the end. Each member in the audience took with them reminiscences soaked in love for the motherland.


01.08.2015: INNOVENTIONS - 2015

Science is a powerful way of understanding and investigating the world. To encourage our budding scientists and giving them an opportunity to present their scientific ideas, QVS organised a Science Exhibition “INNOVENTIONS” on 25th July and 1st August as a part of the Science and Technology month. Students from class III to XI participated in the exhibition which served as a perfect platform for the students to improve their skills in science and exhibit their scientific temperament.

The event saw young enthusiastic participants putting up exhibits comprising of innovative working models along with informative charts and investigation based projects which were relevant to today’s time. The exhibits to name a few included – drip irrigation systems, water sprinkler, digestive system from scrap, detecting vitamin c in different fruits and vegetables, controlling current through arheostat to dim the light, electric quiz board game on periodic table, detecting saturated fat levelsin different types of cooking oils, making the wind work to lift a load, pH of cosmetics and cleaners using red cabbage.

The exhibition was attended by a large number of parents who enjoyed and appreciated the projects displayed. They keenly interacted with students who exuded confidence while explaining the various projects and activities that were on display. The effort put in by the students was appreciated by all.

Another attraction of the exhibition was the magic tricks based on scientific principles presented by the students of class VII. Tricks like rising pencil, walking water, pepper magic, blowing balloon, coin trick and many more were dramatically presented by the students. The presentations were effective and drew the attention of many parents.

Art and Craft Exhibition was also a part of Innoventions-2015 wherein the student displayed their creativity and expressed their imagination freely.. The Art and Craft Exhibition was organised in the Art room and the third floor corridor. The entire corridor came to life with a kaleidoscope of various colours. The students used innovative and eco-friendly ways to make use of waste items. Household items like disposable cups, cartons, jute rope, fused bulbs and pepsi bottles were used to create many decorative items. The hard work and dedication with which the projects were made was evident in their beauty and precision. A walk through the corridor was like walking through a visually stimulating realm of creativity.

The exhibition was a huge success and gave the students rich experiences and enriched their scientific and artistic talents.
