30.11.15 : Class IV A & IV B Special Assembly Report

Once Akbar asked Birbal to write a statement which indicates happiness as well as sadness.
Birbal wrote: This time will pass away…

Akbar-Birbal tales have been passed on mainly by oral tradition. They focus on how Birbal manages to outsmart the envious courtiers who try to trap and portray him in poor light in front of Emperor Akbar, often in a humorous manner with him depicted as giving sharp and intelligent responses. Others show his interactions with the emperor which involve him trying to test Birbal’s wit and Birbal making him realize his folly, which always ends with Akbar getting amused and impressed. He occasionally challenges Birbal by giving him a line of poetry which Birbal has to complete and some stories are simple humorous anecdotes. Getting an advantage in a seemingly impossible situation and making his challengers look silly are usual occurrences in these tales. These tales motivate and inspire children’s wit and develops presence of mind.

Keeping this in mind, the students of class IV-A and IV-B put up an excellent show on the topic Akbar BirbalAnecdotes on 30November 2105.They presented “One Night in the River” and “Three Fools”. The assembly began with the Morning Prayer, followed by the news, thought for the day, laughter-time jokes, interesting facts about the life of King Akbar and the play based on an Akbar-Birbal story. The play comprised of devotional songs and dance performance. The assembly was enjoyed by the audience. The assembly came to an end with a mesmerizing dance performance “Azeem-o-Shehan Shah” praising Akbar’s righteousness.

04.11.15 : SPORTS QUIZ

“Our greatest national resource is the minds of our children.”
- Walter Elias Disney

It is important to explore the minds of our children and inspire them to be curious about the world around them, so that they can develop a greater understanding of it. Quiz competitions encourage students to look beyond their textual knowledge and establish a relationship between theory and application of the learnt concepts. Quiz is a ‘mind sport’ wherein the players, either as individuals or in teams attempt to answer questions posed to them correctly, in order to win a prize or title. Quizzes are designed to promote a fun way to study and in the process help improve one’s general knowledge. They enable students to think from different angles or simply ‘to think out of the box’. Keeping all this in mind, QVS held a sports quiz competition from classes VI to XI. The aim of the competition was to test the knowledge of the students related to sports and games and create more awareness for the same.

The preliminary round was held on 4th November,2015 in the form of a written test followed by an interactive session for the respective classes i.e. VI to VIII and IX to XI. The finalists were selected from each house i.e. Truth, Peace, Integrity and Courage. Finale of the competition took place on 6th November, 2015. There were different rounds in the quiz such as ‘quotes round, identifying various sports celebs and personalities round, jumbled round and measurement round’ etc.

All the participants who took part put their best foot forward. Overall, the event was very informative and entertaining for the audiences.
