18.02.15: INTER –CLASS SAFETY QUIZ

Safety is as simple as ABC - Always Be Careful.

Just like food, water and other basic amenities, safety is one of the essential prerequisites of life. Whether it is health, money, work or road safety, the benefits of taking proper precaution guarantees a secure and safe life. In this life of maddening chaos and high risks, abiding by safety or protective measures means a longer, safer and better life. It is rightly said that
Precaution is better than cure. ~Edward Coke

Keeping this in mind , a SAFETY QUIZ was organized for all the sections of Std. III,IV and V . A preliminary round was held and one student from each class was selected for the final round which was held on 18th FEBRUARY`15 in the Cultural Hall.

The selected students competed enthusiastically in various rounds viz.

13.02.15: CLASSES VI-VIII POSTER MAKING COMPETITION

THEME: SAFETY AND SAFETY SIGNS

Safety is the state of being "safe", the condition of being protected against physical, social, spiritual, financial, political, emotional, occupational, psychological, educational or other types or consequences of failure, damage, error, accidents, harm or any other event which could be considered non-desirable. Safety can also be defined to be the control of recognized hazards to achieve an acceptable level of risk. This can take the form of being protected from the event or from exposure to something that causes health or economical losses. It can include protection of people or of possessions. But despite this broader meaning of safety we have a narrow meaning also which includes the safety on road, knowing the road signs and following them, keeping ourselves safe at home, at school etc.

To make the girls aware of this form of safety a Poster Making Competition was conducted for students of classes VI, VII and VIII on 13 February. Three different themes were given to each class to make a poster on.

For class VI the theme was Safety on road-knowing the road signs, for class VII the theme was Safety at home/Kitchen and for class VIII the theme was safety at School. All the girls enthusiastically participated in the competition and made colourful posters depicting the given themes. Although all the posters made by them were very beautiful and self explanatory but some were a little better than the rest.

12.02.2015: CLASS VIII-C Special Assembly- Sudama

Indian mythology abounds with colorful and flavourful tales and lore, each having a hidden moral or lesson to learn from. While some of these stories deal with valour and heroic deeds; others relate in detail, instances of love and friendship. In this present-day jet-age, a true friend is one who is the most difficult to find and keep. We have several hundreds of friends, both online and offline, but only the really lucky ones get to meet that one friend and companion who will stay by their side, no matter what happens in their lives.

This time, Queen’s Valley School students of class VIII-C presented a wonderfully refreshing and touching tale of the eternal bond of true and divine friendship between man and God on 12th February 2015. Team work ensures success and the best teamwork comes from the bonding of friendship. The VIII graders gave a resounding start to their theme of 'Friendship' through an all-time legendary story of ''Krishna and Sudama" in their morning assembly.

The girls presented a mesmerizing stage event depicting Sudama’s visit to the forest and his visit to Lord Krishna and these episodes served as a visual treat for all present there. Assembly was enjoyed and appreciated by one and all. The assembly also reiterated the positive values each student should include in their individual thoughts and abilities from Sudama’s life.

Mythology, legend and razzle-dazzle in form of different dance movements all rolled into one show – The story of Sudama and students of classes VI, VII and VIII lent their beautiful voices and strummed up the humdrum moods. The children swayed to the tune of "Arre Dwarpalo..Kanahiya se keh Do" culminating the Special Assembly's programme.






12.2.15 Pre-School & 13.2.15 Pre-Primary Li’l Nightingale

Solo Song Competition

A song is something you can share, it doesn't wear out or get broken, and you can take it anywhere. Singing is one of the first experiences children have as creative and self-expressive beings. Singing cheers the spirit and lightens the heart. It helps to develop self-control, concentration and memory. Singing encourages self-expression and helps children to speak clearly and with ease.

‘Li’l Nightingale’, a Solo Song Competition, for the princesses of Pre-School and Pre-Primary was held on 12th and 13th February 2015 in QVS.The aim of the competition was to encourage the princess to showcase their singing talent. The corridors of the school were aloud with the sound of music as the princesses enthralled the judges and audience with their breathtaking performances.

The result is as follows

11.02.15: CLASS IX-X ‘Rally- Women Safety’

Newspaper reports and surveys conducted by NGOs and various international women’s organizations, on the issue of women safety in India (and especially Delhi) speak a lot about the absolute lawlessness with respect to women safety here. News on any medium is flooded with reports on crime against women, be it domestic violence, abduction, molestation, rape, child abuse or dowry harassment. Governments are talking of smart cities, completely ignoring the need and importance of safe cities first. One cannot even imagine how unsafe women are in other parts of India, when the capital itself has failed to secure its women. Apathy on part of Government agencies and lack of sincerity and action on part of the police has aggrieved and angered women now.

We, at QVS, therefore took this issue up in all sincerity, not only to send a strong message out, but also to educate our queens about different types of crime and violence going on against women, both outside as well as inside the house. On the 11th of February, 2015, the students (classes IX and X) and teachers of QVS organized a rally to highlight the issue of women safety. Using big bold banners they indicated what women want and condemning all forms of violence against women they demanded that all perpetrators should be punished.

The rally was not the end, it was the means to educate and alert our queens. A planned presentation was conducted in the cultural hall by students of classes IX and X, using effective PowerPoint presentations. Various aspects of safety for women- domestic violence, cybercrime, safety at work place, in public places and transport, and last but not the least, safety against cultural taboos- like dowry and child marriage were dealt with. Important laws to protect women were also explained. As expected, our students were enlightened and remained glued to the presentation throughout. It was great learning for everyone.







10.02.15: CLASS VIII B SPECIAL ASSEMBLY REPORT

TOPIC – 'ARJUNA’

Arjuna serves as an example of a great human being, a dutiful householder, a loyal brother, a great warrior, a devout husband and a sincere devotee of God.

On 16 February, 2015 the students of class VIII B presented an assembly on the topic “Arjuna”. The assembly started with a prayer sung by the entire class followed by English, Hindi, French and Sanskrit thoughts. The students also presented general knowledge facts on ‘Arjuna’ to spread awareness among the audience. The students presented a skit on the story “ARJUNA DEFEATS INDRA”. The skit was also supported by the dance performances on the songs like Karam Ki Talwar. The students had also prepared background boards on the same. An enchanting narration and enactment of scenes, caught the imagination of the audience, much to the delight of the performers. It was an enthralling performance made possible by the relentless effort put in by our ever enthusiastic students.

The effort put in by the students were appreciated by the audience. The assembly culminated with the Principal’s address where she motivated the students with her words of wisdom.







06.02.2015: Pre-School English Calligraphy Competition

“Like it or not, even in our machine-driven world, people still judge you by your handwriting.”

Even in the age of technology, handwriting remains the primary tool of communication and knowledge assessment for students in the classroom. It is the most powerful medium of communication and it is rightly said that the pen is mightier than the sword and most effective when the hand writing is beautiful and legible.

Handwriting is critical to the production of creative and well-written text affecting both fluency and the quality of the composition. To this effect early age is the best time to develop hand writing of children.With this aim QVS organised a Calligraphy Competition on 6th February 2015, for the students of Pre-School;to enable them to reproduce their newly mastered talent.A calligraphy sheet was given to the princesses to write on.The Princesses proved that they have mastered the strokes.

05.02.15: CLASS II IF COUNTRIES COULD TALK

FANCY DRESS COMPETITION

There are about 200 countries in the world, each with its distinct culture, political past and social formations. What if these countries were made to speak about themselves? They’d certainly do so about the transformations they’ve experienced from the past to the present. And to give voice to different countries, our little queens participated in a fancy dress competition on 5th February, 2015 on the topic “If Countries Could Talk”. They portrayed different countries and depicted their dynamic transformation from being one of the economically underdeveloped countries in the world to becoming a country with a modern physical and economic infrastructure.

Our little queens participated in the event with great joy and enthusiasm and enjoyed the multihued activity, which was celebrated as part of ‘British Council International School Awards’ activities. The little queens were dressed in beautiful traditional as well as costumes the modern ones of India, USA, England, etc.

During the competition our little queens explored a new horizon by displaying different nations through scrap books. They created a vibrant atmosphere, making judgment ever tougher.

04.02.15: INTER-HOUSE CRICKET MATCH

In India, cricket isn't just a game. It is a bona fide religion. A religion where cricketers are Gods and every victory is a festival.The passion, the thrill, the craze and the excitement that the players as well as the spectators experience are unmatchable to any other sporting event. The game also encourages team spirit, fosters discipline, helps to build up character and brings out the quality of leadership.

It is very often said that cricket is dying in England, the country where it originated. But Indians, who picked up the game from the British, continue to be fanatic followers. Cricket plays the role of an adhesive in this land of contrasts and contradictions. It does not matter which crop is grown on the soil of Punjab or Kerala or Bengal, you will always find a common sight, kids playing cricket over it!

The fervour associated with a cricket match was witnessed on the grounds of Queen's Valley School, during an Inter-House Cricket Match for classes VI to VIII, on the morning of 11th February, 2015. All the four teams were supported by a plethora of cheering spectators and friends sitting around the boundary.

The most impressive aspect of the game was the excellent team spirit and the fairness of all players. This event gave the players a chance to celebrate wins and commiserate losses, all while enjoying the camaraderie of their teammates.

It was a pleasure to watch the dedication and panache of our young Queens who proved that cricket is not just a gentlemen’s game.

01.02.15: ECO ADVENTURE TRIP TO CAMP TIKKLING

What joy! What exhilarating madness! For one wild, glad moment we snapped the chain that binds us to earth, and joining hands with the winds we felt ourselves divine!

Such were Helen Keller’s thoughts as she surrendered herself to the magnanimity of nature. As her childish imagination glowed with the splendour of nature’s beauty and glory, she felt the rare delight of losing herself in the lap of nature and to smell the cool, delicious odour that came up from the earth in its purest and most natural form.

In order to inculcate the sense of appreciation for nature and provide students a respite from the hustle-bustle and monotony of daily life, Queen’s Valley School organised an Eco Adventure Camp to Camp Tikkling, Gurgaon. Surrounded by extensive wilderness of rocky Aravalis from three sides, the camp acts as an ideal location for a whole range of adventure activities. At the same time, the site can be viewed as an idyllic landscape for experiencing the everlasting magnificence of nature and the eternal joy associated with its elements.

The students experienced a rare sense of euphoria and self-confidence as they actively participated in activities like obstacle course, artificial wall climbing, zorbing, backpacking,rock climbing and rappelling. A combination of fun filled games and life skills activities including team building workshops and confidence building programs made their leaning experience richer, joyful and rewarding, leaving students wanting for more. All activities pertained to imparting lessons of survival and heroism and demonstrated humanity’s urge to defeat all disasters and emerge victorious.

As professed by Andre Gide, ‘It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves.’ the day’s events enabled students to indulge in self introspection and realization of self-worth. Apart from the rigorous physical and mental training, the trip led to recreational satisfaction and rejuvenation of spirit in exceptionally unique ways. The day ended in the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci:

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
