   ...Latest Events

“Life depends on water, the reservoir depends on you.” 
Sri Venkateshwar International School has a long standing tradition of preservation of environment as an imperative part of its Community Outreach Programme. In order to sensitise students towards the need to conserve water and to preserve our environment and ecology, a tree plantation drive was organised in the school on Monday, 15 July 2019 during which saplings were planted in the nearby community park which has been adopted by the school. In our hunger to own Persian rugs we have forgotten to appreciate the carpet of spongy grass. These young crusaders proved to nurture the link between man and nature by planting trees. 
As per the directions given by DoE regarding the Jan Shakti Abhiyaan, 60 Class Prefects of classes 6-12 along with the School Head Boy and Head Girl enthusiastically participated in the drive and planted around 60-65 saplings. The Middle Wing Co-ordinator Ms Vineet Tomer, the Primary Wing Headmistress Ms Premlata and teachers were also present on the occasion and they planted numerous trees which are elemental to the ecology of the area.
    Class 12A Group Activity - Posters Parse
    Students were taught about the elements of poster-making and were given the criterion to evaluate posters, on the basis of which they were asked to analyse the posters given to them within their group and talk about their observations/findings to the rest of the class. The deductive method helped the students enhance their poster-making skills and also critical thinking and oratory skills as well as confidence levels.

      In collaboration with CMS Vatavaran, Sri Venkateshwar International School, Dwarka organised plethora of activities on ‘Celebrating Himalayas’ for the young learners of classes 6 to 8 on July 18, 2019. The main objective of this initiative was to sensitise them towards the environment and its hazards. The students participated in Quiz, Slogan Writing and Art Competition with great zeal and fervour. They showcased their love towards Art by making wonderful paintings of Himalayas which was shown as the ‘Crown of India’. They also depicted in their art as to how global warming has become a great threat to glaciers and the great Himalayas in the current situation. 
      It was indeed a great learning experience for the young crusaders who are the future rulers.

      It’s aptly said by Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan,
      ‘Education should be imparted with a view to the type of society that we wish to build.’

                Family - the link from our past to bridge our future...

                Pre-School learners had a wonderful time sharing their family tree with their peer group .Children brought flash cards ,epic family tree,pictures and took immense pride in discussing their family members .This interaction helped them to understand the concept of nuclear and joint family too.
                The aim of the activity was to develop a sense of belonging and strengthen their bonding with the family.

                In a family ,like the branches of a tree , we might grow in different directions but the values of empathy , respect , honesty we learn act as roots which keep us bound together as one unit.
