23.12.15 : CLASS VI-D SPECIAL ASSEMBLY REPORT CHRISTMAS
Holy Sight, peaceful and bright
A Wonder Star, lend thy light
With the angels let us sing
It is the birthday of thy king.
Let’s dance and sing and make good cheer
For Christmas comes but once a year.
Joy and gaiety pervaded the atmosphere as we in Queen’s Valley celebrated Christmas with enthusiasm and fervor. A Special Assembly was presented by students of Class VI-D on 23 December, 2015.
The emphasis was laid on the real meaning of Christmas which lies not merely in celebration but more so in giving, sharing, forgiving and loving.
The play“Is It Really Christmas?” taught us the true spirit of Christmas. We always focus more on artificial gifts but fail to understand the value of real gifts that God has for us such as peace, forgiveness, love, etc.
The celebration began with the singing of hymns. The students gave an exemplary theatrical performance. With a smile on their faces, joy in their hearts and a twinkle in their eyes, children narrated the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, thus spreading the message of love, joy and peace. Carols and cheer highlighted the true spirit of Christmas bringing in pleasant surprises and joyful moments to cherish always!
18.12.15 : CLASS III-AB Special Assembly Report
“Everyone is a genius but the real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together”.
At Queen’s Valley, we believe that the school assembly is one of the most essential facets of a school's curriculum. It nurtures the development of intrapersonal skills and inculcates the qualities like devotion, dedication, team work in them. Moreover, it makes children confident and helps them to conquer their stage fear. It also helps to develop the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of the curriculum.
A Special Class Assembly of class III-A and III- B was organised on Friday, 18 December 2015 on the theme – “Moral Stories – Tenali Raman”. The topic taken was “Tenali Rama and 50 Gold Coins”.
Tenali Rama was born in a village called Tenali, in the kingdom of Vijaynagar. His original name was Ramakrishnan, but he had taken his name from the village to which he belonged. Tenali Ramakrishna did not receive any formal education during his childhood, but became a great scholar, due to his thirst for knowledge.
He was the court poet of Krishnadeva Raya, a great king who ruled over the Vijaynagar Empire in the sixteenth century. Tenali Rama was famous for his wit and Getting an advantage in a seemingly impossible situation and making his challengers look silly was a usual occurrence in Tenali’s tales. These tales motivate and inspire children’s wit and develops presence of mind.
The assembly began with the English thought followed by Hindi thought, G.K facts, Current Affairsand laughter-time jokes. The play comprised of dance performances. The assembly was enjoyed by the audience. It came to an end with a dance performance of our Queens on the song “Tune Abhi Jana Nahi” representing the wit and wisdom of Tenali.
The involvement of the students in their different roles encapsulated the learning objective of the assembly. Our queens looked beautiful in their eye catching costumes.

10.12.15 : Report on JR. NBA Workshop
“Some people want it to happen; some people wish it would happen; others make it happen.”
The Basketball Court of Queen’s Valley School came alive with the cheering of children when the queens of classes III-V participated in the Jr. NBA Workshop hosted by the Reliance Foundation under the supervision of coach, Daniel. The motive behind the workshop was to inspire the students to participate and learn the basic skills of basketball while having fun. Basketball is much more than just a game, it is fun and entertaining too. It teaches us sportsmanship, teamwork and respect. It is also an effective form of exercise which helps in maintaining physical fitness and a sound mental health. With its fast-paced actions it helps in developing hand-eye coordination, speed and endurance. Moreover, as vigorous exercise is required to play the game well, it addresses the problem of obesity common among the children these days.
Generally children in India begin playing basketball at the age of twelve, but with exposure like this, they can be encouraged to start at an early age and work on their basic skills and do much better at a later age. The workshop aimed at building confidence among the students. Certificates were given to all the participants for the same. The participants were also given a score card which had the details of their performance of the various activities performed by them. The different skills included were: passing, dribbling, lay-up, footwork and hotshot. Students under the age of 10 from schools like Bal Bharti, Pitampura and different schools from Dwarka like ITL Public School, Venkateshwar International School, GD Goenka, Presidium, Indraprastha School, Maxfort, Sachdeva Global School, Sri Venkateswar Public School, Vandana International School and Meera Model Public School, Janak Puri also participated. It helped to inspire the students to play basketball and rise above the basic level. In a nutshell, the workshop gave an opportunity to the students to take a break from their rigorous schedule and have a fun-filled time.

07.12.15 : WHAT NEXT AFTER 12TH?
Every student faces the question of ‘what next’ after class 12th and 10th. They have to decide a stream out of - Humanities, Science and Commerce, and the only career guidance she/he has, is the opinion of their parents and teacher’s judgment based on marks and comments of their friends and neighbors. It is at this point that a career counsellor steps in and helps the child sail through these turbulent times.
Career building is a continuous process and everyone is worried about their career, especially in the initial stage. In today’s scenario there are so many career options, students find it very difficult to choose the right career option. Taking all these issues into account a special career development and counselling workshop was organized. Mr. Jitin Chawla, an eminent educationist and career counsellor along with his team of career experts were invited to speak on all important topics related to career choices.
The workshop advised students to choose a stream which suits their interest and how such a choice makes it easier for them to grow and build a successful career. To make a better career choice one must undertake these three steps, 1) Assess oneself 2) Be aware of opportunities 3) Set one’s goals.
One of the career guidance expert Mr. Hanumant Sabherwal guided students in how to get admission to prestigious institutes like IITs, IIMs, Fms, IIFT, St.Stephens, SRCC, CBS etc. He explained the importance of entrance examination and how it can help students get into colleges.
It was an empowering session especially for the students, as the CBSE board exams are round the corner; there is a sudden sense of nervousness. There is an urge to perform well in the board exams and excel. Almost every student wants to have a bright career by cracking the board exams and entering the desired college. The workshop motivated students to follow an action-oriented approach.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”―

Mathematics is both the queen and the hand-maiden of all sciences.
