20.08.2011 – No Man’s Land – A Slow Learner

When a child is conceived, parents begin forming a set of expectations about who that child will become among these is the belief that the child will be bright and that she/he will be able to hold her/his own in school and society. Not every child meets these expectations. About 22 or 23 percent of the population falls into a range that educators label low average or borderline. This means that the child will not learn as easily or as well as his peers. Without parental and educational support, the slow learner experiences high levels of frustration and discouragement.

So to make teachers aware of this problem a workshop on the topic – The Slow Learner – No Man’s Land was conducted by the school Counsellor Ms. Malhan on 20.08.2011, where all the characteristic of the child, Academic remediation, required amount of support from family were discussed.

Only through appropriate evaluations can slow leaner be identified as having lower intellectual capacity. While there is no cure for lowered intellectual capacity the child can be made to learn compensatory skills that will assist him/her in future endeavours. Modifying Curriculum and expectation for the learner, peer facilitator, time management, accept her best effort, allow extra time for her to complete the task, and most importantly keeping the doors of communication always open, are some of the ways of helping slow learners.

The workshop included certain activities which were conducted to understand a slow learner and the way we can deal with them in a positive manner.



19.08.2011 – Things We Should Know

Ready to have a heart to heart talk with your daughter about the special days of the month. We at Queen’s Valley School believe in preparing our students for all the changes in them.

Since puberty won’t wait for any preparedness, the school organized a workshop on the topic ”Puberty In Girls” which was conducted by the school counsellor Ms. Malhan.

The workshop was a visual experience that aimed to help girls discuss puberty and touched the topics like – the onset of the monthly cycle, having your periods, what to do when not at home, the myths related with it , body safety, personal space, hygiene and developing a positive feeling about the changes in one’s body.

To aid the presentation, related visuals were a part of the discussion. Confusion on why or what to do with these changes was cleared. Students also came up with their doubts which were cleared with approximate justification.

The workshop was a success and left a positive impact on the queens.



17.08.2011 – Deck and Depict Competition

A Deck and Depict Inter house Competition for Classes VI, VII and VIII was held on the 17.08.11 at Queen’s Valley School, which brought out the various hues of creativity and versatility of the students.

There were students decked up as a pen, a school bag, a one rupee coin, a story book, a tree, the sun, a laptop, the Indian constitution, a radio etc. They all depicted themselves very well in an interesting, informative and entertaining manner. The sun gave a lot of important information about itself. But the one rupee coin was seen shedding tears on its lost glory and its plight of not being accepted by even beggars these days. The Indian constitution talked about its father, its birth and its importance in our lives.

All the houses participated enthusiastically with appropriate props. The judges had a tough time deciding on the winners.

11.08.11 – Independence Day Celebration

“Freedom is our nature as only with freedom can joy,
generosity and other human values blossom.”

Commemorating the day India attained freedom, the young queens of Queen’s Valley School too celebrated the 65th independence Day by presenting a colourful rhythmic patriotic show in the school premises based on the theme – ‘Bharat Anokha Raag Hai’ – Incredible India on 11.08.11.

To grace and mark the commencement of the programme, the guests of honour were our Chairman Mr. S.K. Sachdeva.

The special occasion exhibited India’s cultural multiplicity and portrayed emblematically two different ‘Indias’ the one symbolizing liberated India i.e. free from foreign rule, clutches of corruption, greed and other vices and the other India which is struggling to free herself and become independent from oppression and other problems.

The school wore a festive look with beautiful banners, colourful charts, posters flags etc. The programme began with the unfurling of the National flag and the National anthem which was sung with a great deal of national fervour to pay respect to the flag and to uphold the sovereignty of our country.

After the flag hoisting ceremony, emphatic speech was made by our chairman Mr. S.K. Sachdeva who conveyed the real motive behind celebration of such festivals and made us understand the importance of freedom and its essence in life.

The function was a medley of unique performances showcasing the diverse cultural heritage of our country. It opened with the scintillating performance by the orchestra which invoked the blessings of the motherland through the song “I will be stronger….” It was then

followed with the queens who looked impeccable in colourful dresses and gave fabulous dance performances on contemporary, classical and folk songs.

This filled the entire atmosphere with patriotic fervor and left the audience spell-bound. Also, the queens enthralled everyone by exhibiting their excellence in physical skills through ribbon drill, aerobics and gymnastics. The highlight of the celebration was the release of the balloons which dotted Delhi’s skyline, symbolizing advancement and which appeared to direct all to a path which is glorious and dispersed the narrowness of minds.

The occasion ended with a festive fervor and spirits soaring high.

06.08.2011 – Screening of “Gifted Hands” - The Ben Carson Story

“Nothing is impossible if you trust in God. He, the almighty will never fail you.”


Nothing is impossible if you trust in God. He, the almighty will never fail you.

Have confidence in your dreams and you can achieve anything. That’s what the movie “Gifted Hands – The Ben Carson Story” told us and it is indeed a very good inspiration we can live by.

An amazing story about life’s ups and downs proves that you can accomplish anything once you set your mind on it. It’s about a frustrated young boy with problems at school and how he overcame the obstacles in his life to become a world renowned neurosurgeon.

The movie was especially screened for the staff members. We as educators need to recognize the ability and caliber of each individual at a tender age and mould them accordingly to turn them into achievers in their respective areas of interest.



06.08.11 – Positive Body Language and Social Graces

Ever wondered about how we stand? How aggressive or non – threatening are our gestures? How do our eyes, hair, clothes look? Confident or nervous, tired or awake?

Body language is all the non-verbal communication we make, both consciously or unconsciously. Becoming sensitive to the clues of body language can help teachers to communicate more effectively with students. With the same thought in mind, Queens Valley School recently organized a workshop for its teacher’s on the topic ‘Positive Body language and Social Graces.’

Conducted by Ms. Ira Sehgal, an eminent personality of this field, teachers were asked to brainstorm the qualities they adored in their teachers’. Things like ‘content knowledge’, innovative techniques for teaching’, ‘voice modulation’, ‘problem solver’, ‘polite’ came up. It was then discussed that how at times students act as mirrors, they emulate what they see. The main learning that came out of this workshop is the way we talk, the way we walk becomes a part of our persona. For instance, tall and erect posture communicates energy and purpose whereas slouched shoulders or hunched back implies tired or lacking in energy.

Thus, if used effectively, body language can become a key to understand the behaviour of large group of students. With little changes in our body language and gestures we can leave a positive impression on students. Each gesture is like a word and one word may have several different meanings. Our work as teachers is not only to identify that gesture but also to unfold its deep layered meaning.
