  • Earth Day & Inter house Elocution Competition
  • Students of Ganges Valley School celebrated Earth day on the 22nd of April,2014 to disseminate and share ideas on how to save  and conserve the earth. This began with a special assembly and was followed by an elocution competition for Grades 4 & 5. The topics varied from Pollution, Global Warming, Waste Management, Forest Conservation to Water Conservation. Children spoke from their heart and conveyed their ideas clearly and with conviction.

  • CLASS ACT 2014 – A presentation by II A and II B
  • With the completion of the last Formative Assessments and the advent of April, it was time to wrap up the academic session. Summer vacation, however, was still a fortnight away. So, both the sections of grade 2 got their act  together to make an  year-end  presentation of the skills they had learnt in Grade 2  before they moved on to Grade 3. Hence the event, CLASS ACT 2014. 
     
    Children put up an impressive show on the stage of the new auditorium, with their songs, poems, songs, skits and riddles and much more. While 2A put up skits and made presentations spreading the message of the urgent  need  to save plants, 2B performed a skit,  “The Magic Fruit” and had  jokes and riddles as fillers that had the audience laughing and cheering.
    Towards the end of the show, one could feel the heaviness in the air as realization dawned on the little ones that it was time to bid farewell to Grade 2. But the teachers soon cheered them up and got them excited about coming back from vacation and being in the next grade. The class party that followed saw the children dancing merrily  to peppy  music and  relishing the goodies that their parents had packed for them.

  • Special Assembly - Mother Tongue Day
  • Fun Day at the Zoo, Night Stay at School
  • Ganges students are always  happy to be  in School; so  when  a night stay  at School on Feb 7th was announced the students were ecstatic and started making elaborate plans. 
     
    The day began with children of Grade 1 – 8 arriving at School with their night kits. After a quick roll call and a brief assembly where they were reminded about following safety rules and good conduct, they set off for a day of fun and frolic– Grades 1 -4 to Sudhakar Car Museum and the Hyderabad Zoo and Grades 5 – 8 to the Deer Park.  Games like Dumb Charades and antakshari kept everyone  engaged during the bus ride.
     
    On returning  to School in the evening, the little ones spoke excitedly about the  outing.   The various cars at the museum like the Brinjal Car, Camera Car, Cricket ball Car and Helmet Car and the animals at the zoo like  the White tiger, the white peacock and the python, seemed to have fascinated them in equal measure. The older kids of course had no less fun at the Deer Park trying their hand at rappelling, rock climbing and archery.
     
    After freshening up, everyone assembled in the School ground for the much awaited bon fire. Students and teachers danced merrily to popular numbers. The reluctant ones – both teachers and students - were roped in too and found themselves shaking a leg.   When repeated announcements of bedtime fell on deaf ears, the teachers resorted to switching off the lights. While the younger lot fell asleep almost immediately, the older kids  continued to play dumb charades  and truth and dare. When they had tired of these too, the inevitable ghost stories started off and continued into the wee hours.
     
    The morning was spent in the School grounds playing cricket, frisbee and football. After a scrumptious breakfast of vada and idli, the students and teachers headed home, busily chattering away about the exciting night at School.

    The  children had a whale of time as they tapped their feet, clapped their hands and sang and danced through the story.
  • Orange Day
  • The Kindergarten enjoyed a fun packed Orange Day on 9th Jan’14.

PP2 relished the orange jellies and the tiny tots of our school, the nursery freaked out on the orange tang drink and also learnt to prepare lion fake mask to celebrate the orange day.
  • Animal Kingdom
  • The little ones of Pre-Primary had a fun filled animal kingdom day on January 24,2014. This activity was conducted as a part of reinforcement to enhance learning and encourage interaction between students. A complete set up of the four broad classification of animals –farm, pet, wild, water and air was displayed. Children were given the choice of getting one of their favorite animal toys to school. Each child placed his/her animal toy in the section to which it belonged. To make the learning more fruitful, teachers narrated animal stories using colorful placards emphasizing on unity among different groups of animals. It was a visual treat for the kinders and proved to be a good learning experience.
  • Jharokha - Glimpses Of Learning
  • On Saturday, February 1st, Ganges Valley was abuzz with a flurry of activity as the School celebrated  Jharokha - Glimpses of Learning. An annual event at Ganges, it is a unique platform for the students to demonstrate their learning through the year.  With each class selecting a theme from the curriculum, researching it and presenting it, the classrooms and corridors were full of colourful and informative displays, writing and artwork.
     
    Spring was in the air, as all the Pre-primary classes decorated their rooms with flowers, butterflies, bees and bugs.   Water, Our universe, Plant world and Animal kingdom were some of the themes that the junior classes worked on. The nursery rhyme corner, where the tiny tots  took turns to sing rhymes, was a real crowd puller.
     
    The senior classes made subject-wise presentations. While the Social Science department presented the physical features of India, the Science department chose an array of topics like magnetism, solar power, sound and light. A live model of the lunar surface having craters, basalt rocks and asteroids was undoubtedly the highlight of the exhibition.  The Language Departments had skits, poetry recitation, riddles, tongue twisters and language games. The Maths department engaged the parents by giving them interesting and challenging puzzles. Vidith Vasireddy of PP1  stumped every one by solving one of the puzzles that none of the adults could solve.
     
    The students impressed the parents by wishing the parents smartly, introducing their topic and  then confidently presenting it.  At the end of their presentation, they bravely faced the volley of questions the parents had for them and gave appropriate answers. Those who did not know the answers, kept their poise and promised to find out later. The parents were amazed at the excellent communication and presentation skills, some of the students displayed.
    The parents went away happy with the active learning that was evident in the exhibition. The lavish praise that the parents showered as feedback truly made the day for the teachers and the students.

  • Swirl the Ganges PP Sports Day
  • The Pre primary wing of Ganges Valley celebrated ‘Swirl’ the annual Sports Day on January 4th in the School grounds. While the grounds dotted with flags in different colours  looked bright and inviting , it was  the tiny tots dressed in the five colours of the Ganges logo that stole the show. 
    The Meet began with some of the PP2 children escorting the Chief Guest Smt Lailavathy Gokaraju to the dais, followed  by a welcome walk by all PPs to the tune of Baby Elephant walk. 
    The displays  gave the School an opportunity to showcase the new skills that the students had acquired. Encouraged by the parents’ constant cheering,the Nursery and PP 1 children in shimmery waist bands twisted away merrily to I Like to Move it , Move it from Madagascar. The Parachute display by PP1 and PP2 included actions  like shaking, swinging to the left and right, making a zero, popping balls and tomb formation that the children had learnt during their KOOH classes. The PP2 dance Happy Feet was also appreciated by the parents.
    They were several fun races  like Get Ready for School wherein the children had to pick up a school bag, strap it across their shoulders and run to the finish line.   Double Scoop  required them to run, put two scoops of sand in a bucket and then run with it. The PPs enjoyed the hurdles and the Stop Pick and Run race. The sight of the tiny tots attempting to do the tasks required and running clumsily had the parents in splits.
    The prize distribution ceremony saw the  winners proudly  receive their medals and certificates from the Chief Guest Smt Lailavathy Gokaraju and the Guest of Honour  Smt Padmaja.
    Finally when the parents race was announced, it was children’s turn to cheer the parents. The response to the call for the Couples race for parents was overwhelming and took 6 rounds to complete. The parents went away happy  terming the programme as  short and sweet.

These were interspersed with track and field events, that had the four Houses cheering the participants from their stands. This reached a crescendo during the 200m mixed relay race for the seniors. Finally, when Mrs Vani Raju, the Executive Director of the School announced  Prithvi   as the winning House for the year the audience erupted  into a loud, enthusiastic applause.   The prestigious Bhagirath award given to the best sports persons of the year went to Jhanvi of Grd 7 and Vikas of Grd 8.
