CLASS X - Jaago Grahak Jaago- Advertisement Making

CLASS X - Jaago Grahak Jaago- Advertisement Making
31-08-2018: CLASS X - Jaago Grahak Jaago- Advertisement Making

Jago Grahak Jago is an initiative of the Government of India, aiming to protect consumers against exploitation and malpractices in the market and spread awareness about consumer rights. The market agencies exploit consumers as they are ignorant of their rights. Thus, it is imperative to inculcate the habit of checking the product thoroughly before buying and take the cash memo after making purchases.  

At Queen’s Valley School, we strive to create an environment for integrated education by integrating mainstream subjects like Social Science with real life situation. We aim to work towards setting a platform for the students to learn the importance of being careful and aware as a consumer.

In order to spread the word of Consumer Rights and Consumer Solidarity, a Consumer awareness drive was organised on 31st August, 2018 where the students of class X prepared interesting advertisements to create consumer awareness. Wide ranging issues were touched by the queens to create awareness for defective and fake products, artificial scarcity (hoarding), adulteration, black marketing, false information and so on.

It was an event that helped create consumer awareness at the grass root level. Students researched thoroughly to develop an insight about consumer rights to prepare their Jago Grahak Jago advertisements. Their in-depth understanding of the issue was reflected in their innovative presentations. The queens made great efforts to make their ideas reach the consumer and introspect the true cause of consumer exploitation and means to overcome this problem. The activity proved to be immensely successful and was appreciated by all.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLY - NADI BACHAO (X- A)
23-08-2018: SPECIAL ASSEMBLY - NADI BACHAO (X- A)

 

At Queen’s Valley School, we believe in the holistic development of a child and thus provide large number of opportunities to students in order to learn new things in an innovative manner. In order to generate awareness regarding social issues, a community awareness campaign was organised in form of a Nukkad Natak by the students of Class X in the school premises. A Nukkad Natak or a Street play is an innovative way of disseminating a social message and creating awareness amongst the masses by using the colloquial language so that it reaches a wider audience.

On 23rd August, 2018 students of class X A presented a street play in the school premises on the topic Nadi Bachao (Conservation of Rivers) to raise awareness about the degrading condition of our rivers. They tried to reach the audience with a message of importance of the rivers and why it is imperative for all of us as members of community to save our rivers.

The students staged different scenes where they dealt with the causes of river pollution and drying river beds in India. They also highlighted the methods of conservation of river through slogans, songs and simple dialogues. It was a beautiful amalgamation of integration of theatrical skills and education. The audience enjoyed the performance and was filled with a realisation of our responsibility towards the environment.

It was an immensely successful event as students were not only able to grab the attention of the audience but also initiated a sense of responsibility amongst the audience. It was a truly blissful sight to see the queens contributing to a social cause.

“FOR TO BE FREE IS NOT MERELY TO CAST OFF ONE'S CHAINS, BUT TO LIVE IN A WAY THAT RESPECTS AND ENHANCES THE FREEDOM OF OTHERS.”

-         Nelson Mandela

On the morning of 13 August, 2018, Queens’ Valley School presented a mélange of patriotic performances, which created an atmosphere of national pride in the school premises. The entire QVS family joined hands together and celebrated the completion of 71 years of India’s hard attained independence. The event was presided over by our revered Chairman, Mr. S.K. Sachdeva, and the other prestigious members of the Managing Committee, who were escorted to the venue by a squad of sharply dressed NCC cadets.

The celebrations commenced with the scintillating performance of the school choir that proudly sung the school song ‘We Are The Queens’, highlighting the ethics that help a student become the best version of themselves and contribute to the making of a better world.

The tri-colour was then unfurled by our Chairman. The national anthem that stirs immense passion in the heart of every Indian was sung next. Our Chairman addressed the gathering of young minds, appealing to their nationalistic spirit and urging them to take pride in being an Indian and fulfilling their duty to their motherland. He also emphasised on the role of youth today as the true wealth of a country, whose responsibility includes setting a pedestal for future generations to follow suit. The release of the tri- colour balloons by the dignitaries carried along the enthusiasm of the participants and spectators to those who were out of its peripheries.

The cultural section of the programme was held in the cultural hall that was abuzz with the excitement of performers and audience alike. The queens presented an impactful street play that emphasised on the need for our youth to be both physically and mentally healthy to participate constructively in the development of the society. The play was complemented by a medley of patriotic songs that came alive owing to the colourful performances of the western and classical dancers of the school. The grand finale performed on a mash up of 'Jagaao Mera Desh' and Tagore's famous poem 'Where the Mind is Without Fear' received a wealth of applause. A vote of thanks was proposed to the guests for gracing the occasion with their presence.


CLASS X - MAGIC OF INDEX FINGER - AWARENESS DRIVE
09-08-2018: CLASS X - MAGIC OF INDEX FINGER - AWARENESS DRIVE

“I do not WANT to protect the environment; I want to CREATE a world where the environment does not need protection.” –

                                      Anonymous

At Queen’s Valley School, we strive to work towards creating a self sustained environment which helps develop sensitized citizens with a better attitude towards the environment. In order to achieve the goals of sustainable development, a special awareness drive was organized on 09th August, 2018 to sensitize students towards their environment. The purpose of this awareness drive was to educate students about the significance of conserving energy and spreading the word.

The students of class X undertook a special awareness drive called “Magic of Index Finger.” The students were taught a simple but an effective tool to prevent any sort of electrical energy wastage. The primary rule following the Magic of Index finger is to switch off any fans and lights that were not being used; any room that is unoccupied should not have any electrical appliance switched on.

The students were encouraged to take part in an extra task of teaching other students- their friends, juniors, even seniors about the Magic of Index Finger. The students who took on this initiative are called The Green Warriors. Every Green Warrior holds the responsibility to check proper usage of electrical energy in the school vicinity.  

The Green Warriors of the school also prepared small note-tags that are posted on every switch board of every room in the school building –

‘Kindly switch off fans and light when not in use’.

This was a highly successful activity that concentrated on teaching the significance of working together and conserving energy.


06-08-2018: TREE PLANTATION DAY

In collaboration with Eco Roots, Panasonic India and Earth Day Network, Queen’s  Valley  School initiated a tree plantation drive on the occasion of Tree Plantation Day. The students took a pledge through the Earth Day Song to  save the Mother Earth and defend it from all the threats it is surrounded by today.

Mr. Anil Arora, Director, Earth Day Network, made the students aware of the hazardous effects of using plastic. They were also informed about how plastic can be substituted with various other eco-friendly things, thus helping in minimizing the usage of plastic.

It was a highly informative session wherein the students also learnt about how to use plastic as a resource, a practice that the world has started to adopt. Different  short movies were shown to the students, focussing primarily on the irresponsible disposal of plastic and other non-biodegradable wastes near the ocean, causing great harm to marine life.

Queen’s Valley School also pledged its support to the UN sponsored ‘Beat the Plastic’ campaign. The students promised  to minimise the use of plastic and make others aware of its ill-effects. Trying to create a little difference by doing their bit for the environment, around 250 saplings were planted by the students of class XII.

It was an extremely thought-provoking session. All the students took keen interest in the facts which they were informed about and participated in the drive with utmost zeal and enthusiasm. They promised to be responsible children of Mother Earth and use its resources judiciously.

 


CLASS X - NEST BUILDING WORKSHOP

“The only way forward if we are going to improve the quality of the environment is to get everybody involved.”
                                            Richard Rogers

Deforestation and urbanization has rendered birds homeless.  In order to make students realize the changing environment patterns and inculcate in them sensitivity towards the issue, Delhi based environmentalist, Mr. Rakesh Khatri conducted a workshop for the students of QVS on 01 August, 2018 focussing on ways to build artificial nests for sparrows and other birds.

Students were divided in groups of five and were provided with the material required for making nests.

The nests were made with ecofriendly materials such as coconut fibres, jute thread and bamboo sticks.

All the students participated enthusiastically in the activity. It was a satisfying activity as the students felt that they have contributed in developing homes for the endangered sparrows. This activity also helped in developing the value of team spirit in the students.

The workshop proved fruitful in sensitizing our students towards issues of environment and motivated them to work towards environmental conservation.

28-07-2018: Science Exhibition- “INNOVENTIONS-2018”

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

                                                                                 -Albert Einstein

 

Visionaries know the power of perspective. Perspective changes everything. What we feel or think about something can dissolve or flip the other way round just by changing perspective. They are the ones who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fear to understand things that clash with customs, privileges or beliefs. New ideas grow in the minds of children. Exhibitions are opportunities where ideas begin to bloom for the development of the world.

With an endeavor to promote scientific attitude among budding young students, INNOVENTIONS was hosted by Queen’s Valley School on 28th July 2018. The event saw young enthusiastic participants from different classes putting up exhibits comprising of innovative working models, investigation-based projects and showcasing Show and Tell competition ‘Junk the Junk’. The exhibits created by different students were indeed eye openers on various topics related to hydroelectricity, rain alarms, solar housing, hydraulic lift, night lamp, piezoelectricity, robot making, purification of water by corn cobs, phenomenon of reflection and refraction, and sprinkler.

 

The exhibition incorporated manifestations of concepts related with Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It presented the students with a great opportunity to showcase their talent and bring out the ‘Innovator’ and the ‘Inventor’ in every young individual.

 

The principles of scientific inquiry, innovation and experimentation were brought to the forefront by creating exceptionally novel and utilitarian scientific models. The exhibition was open to parents and they showed keen interest in the work of future scientists. The effort put in by the students was appreciated by all. The exhibition was a huge success. Enthusiasm and effervescence overflowed amongst students, their teachers and parents.

20-07-2018: INTER CLASS SEED MOSAIC- ART WITH PULSES (IV)

"A healthy outside starts from the inside." 

-Robert Urich

Good health is true wealth. Diets rich in pulses, a great family of seeds contribute to good health. They are ‘ingrained’ in the Indian way of life. Not just in terms of our staple food, but also how we use them for art, rituals, festivals and a dozen other things.

Inculcating healthy ways of living in our queens has been a continuous effort at Queens Valley. So, we at QVS, organized a ‘Art with Pulses Competition’ for all the students of class IV on 20th July' 18 as a part of Science and Technology month. The students participated enthusiastically. They learnt about the names of the different varieties of pulses and nutritional benefits of those pulses. Our young creators intensely engrossed themselves in drawing pictures of fruits and healthy food. They pasted varieties of pulses and seeds to create beautiful art pieces. The students successfully completed the task within the given time limit.

The competition was a grand success. The queens participated keenly and displayed their ideas on the sheets by the dint of their creativity. The event gave them a chance to showcase their skills and encouraged them to happily include pulses- the nutritious seeds in their diet. The closely contested competition presented a challenging task for the teachers to adjudge the winners.

INTER CLASS THE MIND BENDERS – SCIENCE QUIZ (VI)

INTER CLASS THE MIND BENDERS – SCIENCE QUIZ (VI)
20-07-2018: INTER CLASS THE MIND BENDERS – SCIENCE QUIZ (VI)

“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body; it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.”

 

– John F. Kennedy

 

Proper nutrition is one of the most essential elements to being healthy and living a long life.  What we eat becomes our diet, and our diet plays a major role in deciding how healthy we are and how well our body functions. Good health is true wealth, indicated by not just the absence of diseases, but a healthy lifestyle, healthy mental attitude, and healthy ways of relating to all living beings and nature. Most people have some common knowledge on what is good and what is bad for the human body to consume. However, it is not enough just to know which food is good for your body, it is also important to understand why certain foods are important for us. Healthy living ways are harder to develop, though easier to live with. Inculcating healthy lifestyle in our students has been a continuous effort at Queens Valley. 

So, we at QVS, organized a ‘Quiz competition – FOOD, HEALTH and NUTRITION’ for all the students of class VI on 20th July' 18 as a part of Science and Technology month. The aim of this competition was to develop awareness about healthy habits and ways of living among our students. The students participated enthusiastically in this competition. 


The quiz was preceded by a written qualifying round, from which six teams of three students each made the cut, each representing their respective section. The teams faced challenging rounds in this battle of supremacy. The audio visual round prompted them to react quickly to stimuli to answer correctly, and rapid fire round tested their speed. The competition was neck to neck till the final buzzer round, with more points at stake. In the end, class- VIB turned the tables and emerged as winners. The science quiz turned out to be a huge success.

 

All the participants who took part put their best foot forward. Our Queens participated with great zeal. It was a learning experience for the participants as well as for the audience. The audience too appreciated the efforts of our queens. At the end the winners were announced as mentioned below-

17-07-2018: INTER CLASS JINGLE MINGLE- CREATIVE QUOTIENT (Classes XI-XII)

Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

 

Personal  hygiene  is  the  process  of  ensuring  cleanliness  of  all  external  parts  of  the  body  in  order  to  maintain  and  promote  health.  It  is  a  vital  and  effective  way  of  preventing  illness  or  disease.  Everybody  requires  personal  hygiene,  and  for  this  reason,  it  has  become  an  essential  part  of  daily  life  for  most  people. There are millions of products in the market which cater to the same.


In the advertising world, a slogan is everything. Nothing sells a product, or promotes it better, than a slogan that stands out to the consumer. Many times, the best way to sell a slogan is by setting it to a tune. The combination of a good tune and a good slogan can turn a little known product into a household name. For those in the ad world, they know that converting slogans to jingles is a science.

 

With a view to create awareness and promote hygiene and its benefits, QVS conducted a ‘Jingle Mingle’ Competition as part of the ‘Science and Technology Month’ in July 2018 for students of class XI and XII. It was a platform for the students to exhibit, share and display their passion for science through interaction with peers and audiences. The format of the quiz entailed two rounds where in the first round was preliminary. The students of XI and XII were given random products related to health and hygiene. Each team got 5 minutes to prepare an informative and catchy jingle and perform in front of the audience. Top three teams were selected for the final round. The finals took place on 17 July, 2018, wherein all the selected teams competed for the title.

 

QVS encourages positive competition and hopes to bring out the best in all its students through such competitive events, while ensuring that the children learn through all possible ways, not just through books and class-room teaching.

The result is as follows:

14-07-2018: Aurora: Seed for Life- Report

As part of the endeavor to provide students with holistic learning that transcends the confines of course books and classroom learning, Queen’s Valley School organized the Inter School Fest ‘Aurora 2018: Seed for Life on 13 and 14 July, 2018. The proceedings of the event were conducted in association with Behes, a non-profit organization that endorses the free flow format of debating with an aim of honing the oratory, analytical and persuasive skills of the participants.

Through the medium of this All Girls’ event, the fest aimed at giving wings of freedom in speech and thought to the female participants in order to encourage them to stimulate their minds and empower the audience with their ideas and thoughts.

The tournament was held as a two day event wherein several schools from Dwarka participated. The event commenced as students joined their hand in reverence, praying to the Almighty to bless the world with harmony, integrity and passion. The melodic symphony was followed by an energetic dance performance, highlighting the need for a healthy combination of body, mind and soul. The cultural programme was followed by an inspiring speech of the school principal, Dr. Namita Sharma, who stressed upon the importance of debating culture and the need to create a platform for youth everywhere to openly express and challenge ideas and opinions on globally relevant issues.

The debate rounds were held on the top two floors of the school building where the rooms were thematically designed with illustrations and quotes. The students categorized under the two categories of ‘Cubs’ and ‘Lioness’ faced their opponents in a series of rounds. The winners of the event were Queen’s Valley School and Indraprastha International School. The best speaker of the event in the Cubs division was also bagged by a student of QVS.

 

To commemorate the event, a panel discussion was conducted on the theme ‘Colours of Women’s Dreams’. The discussion was presided over by eminent speakers like Dr. Jyoti Pathania, Ms. Sabika Naqvi, Ms. Pragya Anand, Ms. Somaya Gupta and Mr. Akhilesh Pandey who shared their thoughts on topics ranging from gender equality, body shaming and positive discrimination to pink tax and gender pay gaps. It was a pleasure to hear the youngsters amongst the audience citing examples of women role models who have smashed glass ceilings and broken the ages-old aphorisms, thus being perfect exemplars to women empowerment.

 


11-07-2018: INVESTITURE CEREMONY

The Student Council is a democratic body which voices the concerns and opinions of students, and empowers them with a sense of liberty accompanied with responsibility. The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects.  In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body. A good students’ council introduces activities and projects which act as testing ground for novel ideas which in turn, have the potential to lead the way to constructive change.

In order to prepare students to actively participate in all facets of democratic life, the institution celebrated the spirit of the Indian Constitution by involving all students from classes IX –XII in the selection of the students' governing body. The candidates were chosen after thought provoking group discussions and the ones who shone, were finally selected. All the candidates presented their thoughts in front of all the students suggesting how devotedly they will perform their duties, once selected. The students finally cast their vote for their favourite candidates. This exercise empowered the students to intensively participate in decision making process and helped to inculcate the values of responsibility, academic integrity and exemplary moral conduct. 

The Investiture Ceremony held on 11 July 2018, marked not just the formal announcement of giving away of titles to the newly elected students’ council but also reasserted the belief that the reigns of maintaining a disciplined environment have been entrusted in competent hands. The ceremony was a significant step towards the fulfillment of our aspiration to see our students evolve into responsible individuals- individuals who value dignity of labour and display firmness of mind. 

The ceremony began with the felicitation of the members of the students’ council by the Principal. This was followed by the students taking an oath of sincerity, dedication and transparency in discharging their duties and a reiteration of the significance of the school motto. The event concluded with the Principal’s words of wisdom as she encouraged not only the members of the council to channelise their unbounded potential in a deeply engaging manner but also the student body to participate enthusiastically in realising the goals.

28-06-2018: "Try to learn something about everything and everything about something."

It is imperative for a teacher to encourage students to become lifelong learners. To achieve this goal, it is important for a teacher to continue to gather knowledge and keep a scope for improvement. It should be our personal focus as committed professionals.

 

To facilitate this goal, the teachers of Queen’s Valley School attended a series of workshops for development of its teachers on a both personal and professional level.

WORKSHOP ON SOCIAL GRACES

A workshop on Social Graces and Etiquette was offered on Wednesday, June 28, 2018 at Queen’s Valley School, Dwarka by Ms. Sunita Malkani from TIMES NIE. Social grace refers to the general behaviour and attitude of being polite and welcoming to people. Table etiquette prepares someone to make a good impression at mealtime. Our table manners can say a lot about our sense of personal style. The objective of this workshop was to gain awareness on the attributes of a socially skilled individual, to feel comfortable dining in any situation, to understand the value and impact of non-verbal communication and to be able to conduct oneself with dignity, poise and confidence personally and professionally. The workshop informed us that our goal should be to instill confidence, because our social skills enable us to positively engage with others. This workshop was a great success and helped teachers to understand the social graces and indulge them in their life.

WORKSHOP ON MOTIVATION

On the 28th June 2018, Queen’s Valley School held a workshop on motivation for the teachers. The speaker Mr. Shikhar Prajapati used audio-video presentation, exercises, games and role plays to talk about the power of self-motivation by maintaining enthusiasm and commitment towards one’s goals and realizing one’s strengths and weaknesses. Being self-aware was the important idea that Mr. Prajapati focused on. This provided the participants with inputs and motivation, which will help them in being more effective and productive for the organization. The workshop helped in developing the ability to inspire and motivate not just the self but also the others.

WORKSHOP ON STRESS MANAGEMENT

A workshop was held on 21st June, 2018 by Mr. Kamalneet Singh. The aim of the workshop was to help teachers incorporate a positive attitude in their daily lives for effective stress management. According to him, it is very important to choose the right kind of words before the students. He urged the teachers to not only instill confidence but also team work among the students. The resource person also emphasized on the ‘Smile’ which is the basic recipe to share better thoughts. The workshop was a perfect blend of professional and personal development. Everyone was left ecstatic and energetic.

WORKSHOP ON POCSO

A highly informative workshop was organised for the staff as well as the non-staff members wherein they were sensitised about the POCSO Act (The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences). This act has been formulated in order to effectively address sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children. The workshop was conducted by Ms. Aprajita Dixit. It gave the teachers an insight into children’s changing behavioural patterns and their probable causes. It was extremely helpful as the teachers got an idea about how to study children’s behaviour and create a stronger bond with them. It was a highly interactive session and a lot of aspects of POCSO were delved into.

 

WORKSHOP ON ANGER MANAGEMENT

 

In this fast paced, excessively busy life, none of us has the time or the desire, to "stop and smell the flowers." The result is continuously building up stress which might turn us into human volcanoes of anger, ready to erupt over the slightest of triggers. Someone has rightly said, “Being angry is like drinking a cup of poison and expecting someone else to die.” Since QVS believes in a wholesome development of its faculty, a workshop on Stress and Anger management was organised by the school for the staff members. Conducted on June 25, 2018, by Ms Anu Singh from Time NIE, it was an interactive session covering topics like most common reasons for anger, managing anger in different situations, and different ways of dealing with stress and anger. Several tips were shared by Ms. Singh to effectively deal with stress. The workshop ended with the entire staff of QVS feeling empowered with a sense of control over this demon called anger.

TEACHING DEMONSTRATIONS

Teaching is more than a job. It's a responsibility. Teachers train the minds to explore, to question, to investigate, to discover. They ensure that knowledge is not lost or forgotten but is instead passed on to future generations. We, at Queen’s Valley School believe that good teachers are the foundation of good schools and improving teachers’ skills and knowledge is one of the most important investments of time. It is important for a teacher to improve her teaching skills so that children can learn and comprehend the concepts in the utmost clear and interesting way. To perk up the teaching skills of the faculty, Queen’s Valley School conducted a series of teaching demonstrations from 18 June to 30th June 2018 wherein the teachers got a chance to witness different teaching methodologies and their influence on children. Mutual sharing of ideas through brainstorming sessions gave a common learning platform to the teachers, which gave them a chance to learn and practice innovative and new teaching methodologies. They not only shared their own experiences but also benefitted themselves from learning new techniques that are either in vogue or are practiced by other educators. These creative and innovative sessions not only gave them a chance to improve their teaching skills but also in planning and executing the lesson plans based on constructive feedback. It was a successful endeavour that resulted in improved skills and increased confidence on the part of the teachers. 

WORKSHOP ON PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT

Relationships transcend words and behavior. They depend on the energy exchange of thoughts and feelings. If our words are polite, our behaviour is courteous. When our thoughts are judgmental or critical, then we are creating a weak foundation. If our words are of love but our thoughts are of hurt or rejection then we are radiating vibrations of pain to the relationship. Healthy relationships are a source of energy. Just like the sun brightens every corner of the planet, harmonious relationships light up every aspect of life —spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. One of the most difficult things in life is to successfully and harmoniously manage and balance our various relationships. So, keeping this in mind, a workshop was conducted in school on the topic ‘Harmony in Relationships’ on 26th July 2018. The workshop focused on how one can bring harmony in relationships. Relationships involve two or more people and hence are prone to a clash or conflict of ideas, ideals, beliefs, perceptions, expectations, words, thoughts, behavior patterns, habits etc. Respect is the very foundation of a great relationship. Respect can be achieved simply by listening to the other party and understanding how they function and also by respecting the differences. One should learn to adjust and be flexible with people. Happiness is when, what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.

 

QVS BOOK TALK

Books are a man’s best friend. They enlighten us and remove darkness of ignorance. Ralph Waldo Emerson rightly said that if we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads. QVS organized a ‘Book Talk’ for its faculty members, spanning from 20th June- 29thJune, 2016. The teachers were encouraged to read books of their choice during the vacation with the point of view of reviewing it among their fellow teachers, post vacation. Our teachers turned up with reviews on books which were followed by a healthy discussion and appreciation. The genres ranged from biographies to fiction, paranormal to spiritual and mystery to romance. This exercise turned out to be a big source of dissemination of knowledge and encouragement to develop the habit of reading within us. 


14-05-2018: CLASS VII - VIII INTER CLASS IMAGINATIVE IMPRESSION

“When you know better you do better.”

                                                                                                  - Maya Angelou


Queen's Valley School organized an Inter‐Class “MY IMAGINATIVE IMPRESSION-PPT making” competition for all the students of class VII-VIII on the 9thMay ‘18. The students included a combination of text, audio, still images, animation, video, and interactive content forms to create astonishing power point presentations. 

A Quiz to test the students’ skills at handling MS PowerPoint was organized as the preliminary round for the said competition. One student from each section of classes(VII-VIII) was selected for the final round. 

The topic given to the students was “DISASTER MANAGEMENT” along with a range of pictures which had to be used in their presentations. The relevance of the topic and the medium through which it was explored gave our queens a platform to display their presentation and multimedia skills which has become important for creating effective presentations. 

The queens made most of the unique interface offered by the software to bring out the tussle between the print and the non- print media as it is evident today. It brought to the fore the importance, advantages as well the limitations of the two kinds of media with respect to the learning opportunities that each one of them can offer.

Talent Creates Its Own Opportunities”

In today’s fast paced life everyone wants everything on their fingertips. One of the comforts provided by computers to us today are “websites”. Web designing is an art that appeals the users with texts and graphics. Web design is also seen as a technological standpoint. It has become a large part of people’s everyday lives. It is hard to imagine the Internet without animated graphics, different styles of typography, background and music. Queen's Valley School organized an InterClass IT BUDDY-Web Page Designing competition for all the students of class IX from 7th to 11th May 2018. The students included a combination of text, images, page colour, text colour and content forms.

The WebPage Designing Competition aimed at making the queens of QVS adept and efficient in preparing appealing and enthralling websites. It was an opportunity for them to manifest their webdesigning skills. It was a pleasure to see the participants displaying great deal of confidence.

They showcased good designing skills and thorough understanding of the various aspects of web-designing. It was laudable that the students at such a young age were able to compile and present information so effectively. The sites were judged on content, structure and navigation, visual design, animation, functionality, interactivity and overall impact.

SHOW AND TELL COMPETITION

SHOW AND TELL COMPETITION
10-05-2018: SHOW AND TELL COMPETITION

 

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.”

                                                               

                                     -         Benajimin Franklin

Children remember what they do, rather than what they are told about. Show and Tell activity helps children to strengthen their descriptive skills, increase vocabulary and to speak in complete sentences.It is one of the simplest activities that young students can engage in, where the performer faces the audience with a particular item and proceeds to show it while giving information about it such as where they got it, what it is used for and how it works etc. 

Queen’s Valley School has the same belief and in pursuit of that, had organized a Show and Tell Competition for the Queen’s of Pre School to class  II from  9th to 15th May 2018. Children were asked to speak on their favourite vegetable, toy & gadget. This helped the students to gain confidence,  improve their vocabulary and skills of public speaking.

 The Princesses of Pre-School described their favourite toys like Barbie, Doraemon, Kitty, Kitchen Set , mobile phone, charger etc… The Pre-Primary students spoke about a variety of vegetables grown in our country. They spoke about its origin, shape, colour, benefits and taste. The students were dressed aptly and were equipped with creative props.Everybody present in the audience was impressed and appreciated their efforts. The result is as follows:

CLASS XII - CODER BYTE COMPETITION
09-05-2018: CLASS XII - CODER BYTE COMPETITION

“Everybody should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think”

-         Steve Jobs

We live in a world dominated by software. When we wake up in the morning to the time we sleep, we are constantly connected to software-controlled devices. Our telephone calls go over software-controlled networks; television is delivered over the internet; people don’t buy maps anymore, they use the web; we all shop online. Soon, our houses will be controlled with software, some of your medical care will be delivered over the web and a car may even drive itself.Since technology plays such a large role in modern life, we need more people who understand how they work and can create it.

 

Software is the language of our world. It is becoming a critical layer of all our lives. In the future, not knowing the language of computers will be as challenging as being illiterate. Learning to code is not primarily about equipping the next generation to work as software engineers, it is about promoting computational thinking. Computational thinking is how software engineers solve problems. It combines mathematics, logic and algorithms, and teaches you a new way to think about the world.

 

Young, ignited minds are our greatest assets. We, at Queen’s Valley School, cherish this young talent and encourage them to explore their true potential by awakening their passions and cultivating their talents. As an institution it is imperative for us to best prepare our queens to be informed, conscientious leaders in a technologically advanced society.

An Inter- Class “Coder Byte Competition” was organised for class XII on 9th May, 2018. It aimed at providing a platform to the students to be adept and efficient programmer. It was an opportunity for them to manifest their Logical Abilities and Thinking skills. It was a pleasure to see the participants displaying great deal of confidence. They showcased good programming skills and thorough understanding of the various aspects of C++. It was laudable that the students at such a young age were able to compile and create programs so effectively.

The best coders are as follow:-

“Imagination is the beginning of the creation.”


Computer Software’s have their application or utility in almost every sphere of life particularly in fields where computations are required to be done at a very fast speed and where data is so complicated that the human brain finds it difficult to cope up with it. We, at Queen’s Valley School encourage the young Queens to explore their true potential by awakening their passions and cultivating their talents. Celebration of May as Wi-Fi month was just another step in the same direction. 

 

Encouraging our queens to embark on the road to being tech savy,QVS organized an Inter- Class “SCRATCH MANIA- Scratch Programming Competition” for class VI on 8th May, 2018. Such events are held to acquaint students with modern technology.. The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate performing a specific task or solve a given problem. The process of programming thus often requires expertise in formulation of logic forproblem solving. 

A preliminary round and the final round were held in the computer lab. Students made attractive games on the given topic using a variety of options and features of Scratch. Our Queens participated with great zeal and enthusiasm. The event acted as a confidence booster. It enhanced their skills and gave them a chance to showcase their talent and knowledge.

27-04-2018: CLASS III - INTER CLASS MATHS CHALLENGERS- Number Knock Out

“Mathematics is one of the essential emanations of the human spirit, a thing to be valued in and for itself, like art or poetry.”

 Mathematics is a methodical application of matter. It is so said because the subject makes a person methodical or systematic. Mathematics makes our life orderly and prevents chaos. Certain qualities that are nurtured by mathematics are power of reasoning, creativity, abstract or spatial thinking, critical thinking, problem-solving ability and even effective communication skills.

Mathematics is the cradle of all creations, without which the world cannot move an inch. Be it a cook or a farmer, a carpenter or a mechanic, a shopkeeper or a doctor, an engineer or a scientist, a musician or a magician, everyone needs mathematics in their day-to-day life. Even insects use mathematics in their everyday life for existence. In order to enhance the mathematical skills of the queens of class III, a competition named Number Knockout was conducted on 27 April,2018. Number Knockout is a fast paced, mental math game with a mission to “Knockout Innumeracy.”

In the preliminary round, conducted on 20 April, the queens were told to knock number 5 and the numbers which are divisible by five, like 50, 55, 65, 70 and so on. The queens were very enthusiastic while knocking the numbers out.

The game was repeated till one finalist was chosen from each section. In the final round, the competition was conducted among the six finalists. It was an interesting game full of excitement and enthusiasm. 

The primary objective of the game was to encourage learners to get involved, to dispel the Math phobia and create a love for the subject and to perceive the connections of mathematical concepts with life situations.

The winners of the day were-

INTER HOUSE KHO- KHO COMPETITION

INTER HOUSE KHO- KHO COMPETITION
25-04-2018: INTER HOUSE KHO- KHO COMPETITION

Playing conventional games has brought kids together and has encouraged teamwork and social interaction. Most old school games require agility and movements such as swinging of arms and jumping. This boosts exercise and improves eye-hand coordination. Team games like Kho –Kho require sportsmen to come up with tactics to defeat their opponent in turn helping them to strategize and resolve their differences.

The major components of Kho-Kho, which include risk-taking, social etiquette, novelty, discovery and other adaptive activities, help foster better learning. In fact, Kho-Kho helps open up the minds of students and allows them to find new ways of solving problems.

Queen’s Valley School experienced a surge in energy on the day of the Inter-House Kho-Kho Tournament held on 25 April, 2018. Each student could feel the adrenaline rush through their bodies, especially the students of the participating houses- Courage, Integrity, Peace and Truth. The game started with a preliminary round and all the students cheered fortheir favorite team. The tough competition made everybody hold their breath till the last second. The aim of the tournament was to share laughter, fun and joy with other Kho-Kho players and strengthen the sporting community and promote healthy bonding. The players developed empathy, trust, compassion and a greater capacity for understanding.

 The result is as follows-

CLASSES VI TO VIII - INTER HOUSE BADMINTON

CLASSES VI TO VIII - INTER HOUSE BADMINTON
18-04-2018: CLASSES VI TO VIII - INTER HOUSE BADMINTON

Sports do not build character. They reveal it.

 

As the saying in English goes, “All work and no play makes Jack a Dull boy”.  Academic learning and sports education complement each other. They resemble the two sides of the same coin. If sports education is carried out accompanied with the academic curriculum, the overall personality of the student is increased to quite an extent. The qualities of the leadership, sharing, team spirit and tolerance are learnt from sports.

Sports education not only teaches the students to maintain the physical stamina, but also the habit of obedience, discipline, the determination to win, willpower, etc. The power of reasoning, mental development, vocational specialisation comes from the academic education of the students. Therefore, sports education along with the academics result in the all-round development of the students.

To enhance the holistic development of its queens, QVS organised an Inter House Badminton Championship for the students of classes VI to XII on 18th April 2018. A preliminary round was conducted and the finalists were selected. For Classes IX-XII the final match was held between Courage, Truth and Integrity House. In VI-VIII category, Truth, Integrity and Peace House made it to the finals. The students showed exemplary badminton skills, and their moves and nuances left the audience spell bound. They did not leave any stone unturned to outdo their competitors.

It was a nail-biting final match wherein the sports stars performed with utmost zeal and enthusiasm. All the participants who took part put their best foot forward. Their confidence and undying sportsman spirit was a sight to watch. It was a spectacular performance by all the participants.

The following students emerged as the champions:

CLASSES VI TO  XI - INTER HOUSE JUDO
13-04-2018: CLASSES VI TO XI - INTER HOUSE JUDO

 

The true value of any art form–be it music, painting, flower arrangement, sculpture, or Judo–is that it has the goal of discovering and developing the true potential within the artist.
                                                           -
Watanabe and Avakian

 Judo, one of world's most popular forms of martial arts, requires efficient use of both physical and mental energy. The ultimate objective of judo discipline is self-perfection and through regular training and defence techniques, the practitioners nurture theircompetence, gradually embodying the essence of this martial art. Judo is an excellent sport to cross-train in, for it offers great development in balance, kinesthetic awareness, coordination and self discipline. 

At Queen’s Valley School, we believe that progress in any field of sports is an allegory for progress in life. Keeping the same in mind, an Inter House Judo Competition was organised on 13 April, 2018, to test our students’ mental and physical preparedness to withstand the rigours of a physical attack. The judokas proved that their arms are an extension of their mind as they grappled with proper form, leverage and timing, using proper techniques that are a result of countless hours of practice, drills and live sparring. The aim of the competition, which included inculcation of perseverance, resilience and compassion on and off the mats, achieved fruition with the impeccable performances of the participants. The announcement of final result was a moment of pride for the physical education teachers who regularly devote their time and expertise to the training of these players.

CLASS X - INTER CLASS PHI ANATOMY- THE GOLDEN RATIO

CLASS X - INTER CLASS PHI ANATOMY- THE GOLDEN RATIO
11-04-2018: CLASS X - INTER CLASS PHI ANATOMY- THE GOLDEN RATIO

“Mathematics is the most beautiful and most powerful creation of the human spirit.”

                                                     Stefan Banach

 Mathematics expresses itself everywhere, in almost every facet of life- in nature all around us. The Golden Ratio- the divine proportion is a mathematical relationship that exists in art, shapes, nature and patterns. This ratio is thought to be aesthetically pleasing and beneficial to the objects that possess them. 

The Golden Ratio denoted by the Greek letter phi, usually (φ) states that the division of a line segment into two creates a ratio of the shorter part to the longer equal to that of the longer to the whole. It works out to about 1.61803 and is derived from the Fibonacci sequence. 

Phi -Anatomy is the study of golden ratio in the bodily structure of humans, animals, and other living organisms, especially as revealed by dissection and the separation of parts.

Students of all sections of class X participated in ‘Phi Anatomy-The golden ratio’ on 11th April 2018. They enthusiastically took up the entire work of integrating the concept of golden ratio and anatomy. Students displayed the presence of golden ratio in bodily structures in the form of a collage. They were judged on the basis of different parameters like creativity, presentation of content, analytical skills.

 

They exhibited laudable traits like teamwork, passion and dedication. This activity not only helped them explore their talents but also helped them understand the relationship between mathematics and science thoroughly.  

This activity helped them strengthen mathematical intuition and foster mathematical creativity.
