27.04.16 : Report on Inter House KhoKho Competition

‘Life is like a KhoKho game moving around in circles not knowing who will touch you when’
- Dr. Harish Shetty

KhoKho ranks as one of the most popular traditional disciplines in India.

Ignored and neglected by the British, KhoKho has not only survived but has witnessed a fantastic spurt in popularity over the past fifty years.With origins in Maharashtra, KhoKho, in ancient times, was played on raths or chariots and was known as Rathera.

The mainstay of the game is that rules are simple and require minimal infrastructure thus making it inexpensive yet enjoyable.Dodging, feinting and bursts of controlled speed make this game exciting and thrilling. To catch by pursuit - to chase, rather than just run- is the capstone of KhoKho.

Mastering how to play KhoKho is a real workout for body and mind.This game helps in developing qualities such as obedience, discipline, sportsmanship, esprit de corps, and loyalty between team-members. It is a game that calls for physical fitness,strength, speed, stamina, agility, concentration and rapid reflex action. It has a toning-up effect on one's health, reduces tension and produces leaders.It gives children an opportunity to learn about social skills, strategy building and also build their confidence.

To promote sports friendly environment and inculcate all the above mentioned qualities in our students, QVSorganised an Inter House KhoKho competition on 27thof April, 2016 in the school premises for classes III to XII.The spirit of healthy competition among the four houses was quite evident. Spectators were left spell bound as they witnessed an exhilarating match.The queens of QVS participated with great fervour and exhibited their well-developed motor and coordination skills.

“Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world”
Walt Disney

Cartoons are an essential part of every childhood. They are, certainly, the most popular source of entertainment for children. With the help of cartoons, kids can learn about the world around them, about new emotions, life issues and other important things. They are associated with humour and fun.

22.04.16: CLASS VII-C SPECIAL ASSEMBLY, EARTH DAY

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs,
but not every man’s greed.”

Earth day celebrates our planet and the life that it provides for all living beings. We humans often forget that without the vital necessities our planet gives us, we would not be able to survive. The air we breathe, the water we drink is all here for us every moment of the day but we take it all for granted and keep polluting our Mother Earth.

Every year 22 April is celebrated as Earth Day. The students of class VII-C took the initiative and celebrated the same in the form of a special assembly. Students started the assembly by singing the school prayer. It was followed by the English thought, Hindi and French thought. The News and a few amazing facts gave us more information. A skit was presented on how we can save our earth from getting deteriorating day by day. Exemplary theatrical as well as dancing skills were displayed by the students in front of an enthusiastic audience.

Through the assembly, the students were successful in delivering the message of preserving and protecting our planet. They talked about the simple yet effective ways one can follow and save the earth. The assembly was enjoyed and appreciated by all.

21.04.16 : CLASS VII INTER CLASS NATYASHASTRA: SOLO DANCE COMPETITION

Yatho Hasta thathoDrishti, YathoDrishtithathoManah YathoManahthathoBhaava, YathoBhaavathatho Rasa
― Natyashastra

The NāṭyaŚhāstra is a detailed compendium of technical moves pertaining to all performing arts, notably dance, music and literary traditions in India. It is also notable for its aesthetic Rasa theory which asserts that the primary goal of arts and aesthetics is to transport the individual in the audience into another parallel reality, where they experience the essence of their own consciousness, and get an opportunity to reflect on spiritual and moral questions.

In keeping with its aim of promoting reflection and introspection in students, and at the same time, inculcating the spirit of healthy living, Queen's Valley School organized Natyashastra: Folk Dance Competition for the students of class VII on April 21, 2016. The students employed highly sophisticated musical, choreographic and dramatic techniques from classical and contemporary Indian dance forms. Performing on various dance forms ensured a balance between the traditional and novel dance styles, thus enabling the desired balance between traditions and modernity. The students participated in large numbers and at the same time, experienced the manifold health benefits of dance. The use of folklore to represent the changing times and the role of dance in strengthening the cultural diversity of the nation, as well as connecting all indigenous peoples of the world was appreciated by all.

The event helped to develop respect for ancient Indian dance forms in students, as well as helped them to understand the importance of the hybridisation process in dancing which allows unity and diversity to coexist. They were judged on the basis of technique, style, innovation, costumes and economy of expressions.

19.04.16: Class VIII ACT-O-MANIA:DUMB CHARADE (BOOKS & AUTHORS)

“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts.”
- William Shakespeare

Word Games are a great way to build language, literacy, and counting skills in students. They can also help improve motor coordination skills, reinforce critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and teach children about winning and losing, taking turns, and team work. Acting games are a fantastic tool. They also help students get comfortable, warmed up and focused and also develop important skills required for acting and performing.

A game in which words or phrases are represented in pantomime,sometimes syllable by syllable, until they are guessed by the other players is called Dumb Charades. Dumb Charades involves explaining the phrases or the name of the movie, a personality, a book or a TV show, etc. throughacting. This is one game that can really add lots of excitement and fun to the learning process in a student’s life.

On the 19th April 2016, an Intra Class Act-O-Mania (Dumb Charades) Competition was organized for class VIII. This was a theme based activity for them on the topic- Books and authors.As we say, “a picture speaks a thousand words”,our students conveyed their ideas about books and authors without uttering a word. The game helped them to become familiar with the names of books (indirectly encouraging the reading habit) and enhance imagination.It was a fun event which was enjoyed by one all.The activity was conducted in three different rounds and each team was allocated time to enact and find out the assigned books and authors.

The scoring was done by awarding 10 points to the team for each successful guess of theirs within the timeframe (1 min.). The team from class VIII won with 50 points.

13.04.16 : CLASS VI-XII Inter House Judo Competition

“It is okay to not win a medal in a Judo Tournament, because you still beat everyone who lacked the courage to compete.”

The importance of judo in the life of a student is indispensable and fathomless. It plays a pivotal role in her all round development. It instills values of discipline, responsibility, self confidence, sacrifice, and accountability. Judo is an art because it is a method of arriving at self-realization and true self-expression. It is also a science as it implies mastery of various laws of nature: gravity, friction, momentum, velocity, weight transmission, and unison of forces. It also cultivates the quality of sportsmanship, which lies in playing a game according to its rules and accepting defeat with a positive spirit. One can say that students are likely to follow the ideal of sportsman spirit in life too, showing honesty and uprightness in their dealings with others and never using unfair means to attain personal ends.

Keeping in mind the safety and security challenge being faced by growing girls these days, Judo has been incorporated as an essential part of co-curricular learning at QVS. To evaluate their level of learning and to assess their strength, an Inter Class Judo Competition was held in the school on 13th April 2016 amidst a cheering crowd of enthusiastic spectators. The girls displayed amazing techniques and spell bounding use of arms and legs to overpower their opponent and put up an interesting show. The audience could relate to the essence of this self-defence technique and felt motivated.
