  • CBSE HERITAGE INDIA QUIZ (CITY CHAPTER) – 23 JANUARY, 2018

  • Inspired by the precept “Catch them Young", CBSE introduced Heritage Quiz in schools with the objective of promoting interest and desire among students to learn and appreciate the vast cultural legacy of our country. This enrichment activity has gained a lot of popularity among the students and teachers across India.

    Rajhans Vidyalaya was the proud host of the first leg (City Chapter) of this 4 Tier Inter School Heritage India Quiz Competition 2018, held on 23rd January at the school auditorium. 43 schools from Maharashtra participated in this "mind sport", each team comprising of 3 students. Surprisingly, there was limited participation from Mumbai as a majority of the schools came from Nagpur, Pune, Aurangabad, etc. The first round was understandably the elimination round where a power point based written quiz with 25 questions decided the teams for the second round after a careful evaluation.

    6 out of 44 schools qualified for the Stage II called The On-Stage Round. This round comprised of a mixed bag of verbal, audio and visual questions interestingly titled as Risk or Reward, Jeopardy (the choice is yours) and the Pyramid Scheme. The quiet confidence of the veteran quiz master Mr. Ajay Poonia, and his peppered humour made the show quite enlivening and engaging for the audience. The questions were carefully selected with emphasis given to the North Eastern States and tourism, in general. From the word go, the winner could be easily identified by a long chalk as the champion team of the City Round ; Bhavan’s B.P. Vidya Mandir, Civil Lines, Nagpur won with a resounding margin. They will now represent Mumbai for the Chennai Regional Final to be held in Chennai on 2nd February, 2018 where they will compete against the winners of city rounds of Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. From the four teams, two teams will be selected for the national semi-finals to be held in Delhi sometime in February, the dates of which will be confirmed later. For the next round, there will be 20 teams from 10 different zones who will be divided into four groups of 5 teams each and that will be the National semi-final. Subsequently, 4 teams from each group will battle it out for the final crown. We wish all the best to the winning team.

  • INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY – JUNE 21, 2017


  • It has been three years since the inception of International Yoga Day, and the enthusiasm with which Indian schools celebrate this ancient Indian art has not yet waned. Indeed, due credit goes to our Hon. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for having proposed the idea of celebrating it at an international level.

    Sceptics may wonder at the various benefits of Yoga and might even compare its usefulness to gym exercises. The primary difference between the two is that while gym exercises focus only on the body, muscle development and strengthening, Yoga postures focus on nurturing the mind, body and the spirit.

    Regular yoga exercise done early in the morning and in the evening helps in regulating and connecting both mind and body. It helps in controlling emotions, brings flexibility into our muscles, helps heal and strengthen organs, energises the body and keeps sickness and disease at bay.

    Rajhans Vidyalaya too, celebrated the International Yoga Day on June 21, 2017, and conducted various activities for its teachers and students.

    The teachers assembled in the Theatre Hall at 6:45 am for the Yoga session conducted by Ms. Pramila Dubey, a yoga expert and our school’s yoga teacher. She acquainted the staff with easy exercises for the neck and spine and also suggested postures for a slimmer waist.

     
      

    Students too started the day with a unique pranayama session and they meditated with soft soothing music playing in the background. This peaceful activity was followed by various others such as class discussion, poster making, and extempore on the benefits of yoga for the students of secondary section.

     
      

    The importance of yoga, its objectives was conveyed through an interesting skit put up by the teachers using stick puppets for the students of primary section. The children were shown short animated films on yoga to bring awareness of the relevance of yoga in their daily life. The students also performed yoga under the guidance of their yoga teacher.

     
      

    The senior secondary section conducted a slogan writing competition and essay writing competition for their students.

     
      

    Diligent practice of this ancient and scientific art will surely help the students and teachers attain a healthy mind and body.

  • Gone are the days when students were satisfied by touring different parts of India. The quest for international experience led the students of Rajhans Vidyalaya to NASA, where they had some wonderful opportunities to get acquainted with concepts of spaceships, space crafts, rocket launchers and equipments needed for space travel.The students had a ‘sit down lunch’ with astronauts with an interactive question and answer session.

     
      

    The students also visited famous destinations like, Niagra Falls, Hershey’s Chocolate Factory, White House, Disney World, Statue of Liberty, and the Universal Studio.

     
      

    A day trip to Miami was the icing on the cake. There was never a dull or a boring moment and the students had a wonderful learning experience spiced with fun and adventure.

  • ART FEST – 22ND APRIL, 2017


  • Gone are the days when intelligence and talent was measured only by the marks on the scorecard or education was only about learning verbatim one’s text books. With the combined efforts of an astute visionary amongst us, Our Principal, Mrs. Deepshikha Srivastava and with the enthusiastic efforts of the talented art teachers, Rajhans Vidyalaya launched yet another very colourful, very creative and much awaited Art Fest Event on April 22, 2017.

     
      

    This Art Fest Event showcased the multiple talents of its young ones who participated spiritedly in the varied fest activities such as rangoli, fruit & vegetable carving, flower arrangement, pooja thali decoration, mehendi competition, nail art, make-up and hair style, craft competition, photography and short film making.

     
      

     
      

     
      

    Amol Gupte, a veteran from our film industry, and the man behind the success of children centric films such as Taare Zameen Par, Stanley ka Dabba and Hawaa Hawai, was the chief guest and Iram Shaikh, an architect and interior designer by profession was the guest of honour for the evening.

     
      

    As is customary, the evening unfolded with the lighting of the lamp by our Principal, the guest for the evening, the school supervisors and bursar Mr. Ajay Naik. This was followed by an introduction of the chief guest and guest of honour by the school captains. The guests were then presented with a Tulsi plant and a painting as a token of appreciation after which they spoke eloquently about the importance of art and need to explore and nurture the imagination of young ones which could open various avenues for them in life.

     
      

    The theme for the Art Fest was “Retro” and the evening lived upto this theme. Students came dressed as village belles and sat on swings hanging from a tree, they rode bicycles adorned with blinking lights, and they posed if front of a VW beetle and clicked pictures & selfies. All creations by students were put on display and were appreciated by parents and teachers alike.

    This enchanting evening which made our school come throbbingly alive helped reiterate that not only does art nurture creativity, but with its ability to bring smiles and laughter, it is also important for one’s health and well-being.

     
      

    Art, an abettor of creativity, and a catalyst for social change and enrichment will always have a special place in the hallowed halls of Rajhans Vidyalaya, and it will continue to be celebrated through more spectacular Art Fest Events in the coming years.
