30.09.2011 – Dussehra Celebrations at QVS (Mini Ramlila)
The grounds of Queen’s Valley School came alive to the chants of ‘Jai Sri Ram’ when the queens of classes I and II took their place to conduct the special assembly for Dussehra.
The assembly began with the school prayers conducted melodiously by the students. The enactment of the Ram Lila began with the Sita Swayamvar where Lord Rama won Sita’s hand by breaking a special bow.
The scene shifted to the palace of King Dashrath when Rama accompanied by Sita and Lakshmana, leaving for the forest to spend fourteen years of ‘vanvaas’. The grief and agony of King Dashrath was brought out beautifully by the talented young queens.
The kidnapping of Sita by Ravana and the make believe gold deer was portrayed so beautifully that the audience was completely spell bound.
The entry of the little girl as Hanuman resulted in great laughter when Hanuman met Sita in ‘Ashok Vatika’ to give her the message from Lord Rama that he would soon be reaching Lanka to free her from the clutches of Ravana.
The war between the armies was fought with such great gusto that one felt as if a truly professional team of actors was present in Queen’s Valley School to enact the Ram Lila. It was a commendable performance by the young girls and an enriching experience for the audience who understood the victory of ‘Good over Evil’.
28.09.2011 : Movie Day for classes III to V
The queens of classes III to V entered the school portal on 28.09.11 brimming with excitement. It was yet another day out for them. In keeping with the aim of the all round development, the school organized a special screening of the movie – Chronicles of Narnia. The movie was both entertaining and exciting. The make believe world of Narnia kept them spell bound and the special effects of the movie mesmerized the queens.
The antics of the little mouse had the queens rolling with laughter while the mighty Aslan was awe inspiring. The movie was a truly wonderful experience for them.
26.09.2011 : Dental Check up at QVS
Smiling is infectious, You can catch it like the flu. Someone smiled at me today, And I started smiling too. But without good dental hygiene, You won’t have teeth to smile.
In order to give its Queens a beautiful smile, Queen’s Valley School organized a Dental Check up for the Lil Queens of Classes I to V. The aim behind this check up was to raise awareness among the students about oral health and hygiene. The check up was conducted by a team of three dentists who gave personalized attention to each student. The students were each given a personal dental prescription mentioning the status of their teeth and the care required. This was done to keep the parents informed about their wards and to take adequate preventive action.
Each smile is precious and a beautiful smile is possible only with proper dental care is what the Queens learnt through their dental check up.
26.09.2011 – Daughters Day Celebrated
“Daughters Are the Flowers of Life”
That’s what we believe at Queen’s Valley School and encourage our Queens to have faith and confidence in all their endeavours. We ensure that our girls realize how valuable they are for this world - as a daughter is a girl who grows up to be a friend and everything about daughters is wonderful and precious. Keeping this in view we planned a surprise for our Queens on Monday, 26th of September, 2011.
Their day started as usual with prayers but the afternoon was full of fun and excitement as we had planned a celebration for them on the occasion of daughters day which was celebrated on Sunday,the 25 of September ,2011 world wide.
Our kids enjoyed a movie show, followed by a story telling session by teachers and the icing on the cake was the dance festivity for the Queens- when they danced on their favourite songs.
The girls had a lot of fun as we made them feel special.
A daughter is the happy memories
of the past,
the joyful moments of the present,
and the hope and promise of the future.
21.09.2011 – Picnic to Indian Railway Museum (I to V)
A day out of school, full of fun and frolic coupled with some learning is what excites children. On 21st & 24th September the Queens got just that. The school had decided to yet again acquaint the girls of classes I to V with one of India’s heritage, the Indian Railway Museum.
Trains have always been a part of everyone’s lives including the little ones, with every child at some time or the other playing the ‘Cooo……Chhuk….Chhuk!’ game.
The museum was a good way of showing the girls the early rail days. The museum had engines over a hundred years old to the not so old. The difference being a level of improvement at each stage as time progressed.
A visit to the museum & that too to a rail museum can never be complete without a fun ride atop a toy train. This was definitely a unique experience with the toy train taking the children in turns, through the winding rail track at a slow pace & showing every nook and corner of the green surroundings of the museum.
Fun and games can easily be associated with an outing like this one. The girls could be seen happily running and playing, smiling, laughing and enjoying every moment spent there.
Finally it was time to get back to the confines of the school thus bringing an end to a day that provided some lighter moments along with learning of what once was the face of Indian Railways, the common man’s transport.
05.09.2011 – Teacher’s Day Celebrations at Queen’s Valley School
‘Teachers are reservoirs from which, through the process of education, students draw the water of life.’
With this thought in mind the students of class X organized a Special Assembly for their teachers.
5th September is a special day in the Indian School Calendar as it commemorates the birthday of a very special teacher Dr. S. Radhakrishnan. Queen’s Valley School too paid respect to this great teacher.
The Assembly began with a song ‘You have made a difference’ dedicated to all the teachers, it was a truly inspirational song. What followed next was that each teacher was called to a special message board created by the students. Each teacher picked up an envelope especially dedicated to her. The envelope contained a title and a special thought along with which the teachers received a card and a badge. Ms. Charismatic, Ms. Diva, Ms. Dream Girl were some of the names the students had thought of, for the teachers.
A round of games led to more fun and masti where the teachers had to walk through a sea of tomatoes blindfolded, a one minute game of garland making and a group of teachers ran a race. The catch was that they were all tied together.
The special performance of the day was a dance full of energetic moves.
The students made it a really special day for all the teachers making them happy that they were in the right profession.
03.09.2011 – English Language Teaching Workshop
Learning is a constant process and imparts a valuable treasure to the human race which remains with him till he leaves the mundane affairs. Therefore it becomes quite vital for a teacher to accumulate knowledge and keep the ‘candle of learning’ burning. In sync with the same thought, English faculty of senior wing at QVS attended an English Language Teaching Workshop organized by the well known Oxford University Press India at DPS, Dwarka on Saturday, 03.09.2011.
The resource person Ms. Gayatri Khanna conducted an informative session which proved to be an excellent source of updating knowledge about language teaching. Illustrative texts of class IX and X were taken up and were minutely discussed from the teaching point of view. It not only enhanced and broadened the teaching methodology but also raised the pedestal for English Language Teaching in the future.
01.09.2011 – Investiture Ceremony
“A new position of responsibility will usually show a man to be a far stronger creature than was supposed.”
At Queen’s Valley School we prepare our queens to be the leaders of tomorrow and that is why we give them additional responsibility thereby helping them to overcome their fears and emerge as leaders. With the same thought in mind, QVS recently organized the Investiture ceremony. Queen’s Valley School follows a truly democratic process for its student council. It gives the queens a peep into the democratic set up. They cast their votes, on the basis of which the student council for the session 2011-12 was elected.

They then stood in their designated places eagerly waiting to receive their badges. The Principal Dr. Ms. Namita Sharma pinned the badges on the proud students.
This was followed by the Oath Taking Ceremony.
