THE INVESTITURE

As is the tradition, the Investiture Ceremony at Nath Valley was conducted with great pride and honour. The parade of student leaders marched towards the amphi- theatre in the common morning assembly. The School Captain Suhani Dube, Vice Captain Pallav Sinha and Captains holding other portfolios were sworn in by Dass Sir while the Vice Captains and Assistant Cap- tains by Dixit Ma’am and Sharda Ma’am respectively. Cyber Captain, Vice Captain & Asst. Captain joined the student council this year! The council pledged to help the school ‘do the right thing’, as our school theme for 2016-17 suggests.

THE FOUNDATION DAY

Nath Valley celebrated 24 years of truth and knowledge as the merit holders of Class X and XII were felicitated by the school. A special show,

called the ‘RAPSKITBALL’ was organized by the students to enhance the festivities. It consisted of a scripted basketball match on stage and a rap song written and composed by students in the back- ground to narrate the match. It left the audience with an important message that: ‘When things look hard and there is nowhere to run, unite all the

houses and we’ll fight as one.’

all the houses and we’ll fight as one.’ AZAADI 70 The 70 t h Independence Day

The 70 th Independence Day at Nath Valley was celebrated with great fervour. In a bid to commemorate the sovereignty of our nation, Principal Dass Sir, escorted by the four pilots, unfurled the tricolour and all the staff members and students sang the national anthem in unison. Principal Sir then shared his views on the significance of the day and emphasized specially on the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ launched by our Prime Minister. After a resounding chorus of ‘Jai Hind’, which Sir said must have been heard all over India right from Kashmir to Kaniyakumari, everyone moved to the amphitheatre for viewing the Independence Day

programme. It commenced with the Welcome Address from the Intra-School Activities Captain, Rajlaxmi Adwant, who elaborated on Sir’s words regarding India’s freedom. Following this, faculty members Shelar Ma’am from the Secondary school and Vaidya Ma’am from the primary school expressed their heartfelt gratitude towards all the martyrs who had laid down their lives for the sake of India’s rebirth as an independ- ent nation. They recounted the tale of India’s progress from a seedling to a young tree that is still yearning and pushing itself further. The ardour they had packed in their words was surely brought home and the stu- dents, highly inspired, felt compelled to pitch in their bit towards the nation’s progress. Spirits soared higher than ever when our Lokmat Patriotic Song Choir gave a commendable power-packed performance, hitting the perfect note while singing a refreshing medley of patriotic songs. The programme finally came to an end with our Intra-School Activities Assistant Captain, Jash Kalyani, presenting the Vote of Thanks. However, it

was in no way the end of the day. Where on one hand the Primary students moved to their classes for the

Drawing Competition, on the other hand, the secondary students moved for the big task- Shramdaan. This activity is a staunch follower of PM Modi’s Swachh Shala Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and inculcates important values such as cleanliness, team-work, self-reliance and service among the students. All the duties were di- vided and the whole school began the cleaning work. Floors were swept, windows were polished, and black boards were scrubbed. This is one of those few times in the year when the students walk around the school

with brooms and rag cloths in their hands, pitching in their bit towards a clean school and subsequently, a clean India. The corridors, the campus and the amphitheatre were soon shining. The atmosphere was jubi- lant. After 3 hours of hard work, all the classes were properly arranged and the students retired to the lunch hall feeling tired but satisfied. And thus, our 70 th Independence Day Celebrations ended with contentment and delight. Nath Valley in itself is a small India which holds great potential to bring about a change in the

actual one. The only reason for this is the “Indianness” that reins the heart of every Nath Vallian.

REACHING OUT TO THE CHILDREN

Situated in the heart of a village a little far away from

the school is what can rightly be called a Paradise. It’s another school full of innocent smiles and bright minds. It’s called the Anandham School. Every week, two teachers accompanied by two students visit this school to teach and interact with the stu- dents and help it in every way we can. As soon as we entered, we were amazed by the spick and span cam- pus. Then moving on, we were graciously greeted by the headmaster and manager there, who suggested that we go around and interact with the students while the Nath Valley teachers conducted their les-

sons. We first went to the 8 th class which ironically had only 8 students in it. They offered to show us

around the school and we obliged. They interacted with us without any hesitation and even recited a few rhymes for us with utmost fervor. We asked them about their dreams and their goals in life, and were met by varied answers, all of them highly ambitious – there were choruses of doctor, engineer, police of- ficer, army officer, artist, mathematician and what not! All these little things made the one hour we

spent there so special. This visit carved a lesson onto our hearts which we will never forget: These children have literally no financial support or a well planned future. They attend school on the available resources.

But no matter what, their faces are always lit with

smiles. It’s time we come out of our self-involved lives and start thinking about others. It was these children who inspired us more than any book or

quote ever has.

EXHIBITION 2016

(Primary, Science, Art, Software & Math)

Nath Valley School organized the Science, Art, Software and Math exhibition on August 19 th and 20 th 2016.The chief guest for the event was Smt. Mohini Kelkar. The judges included Mr. Denesh Mutha, Mr. Muktak Joshi, Dr. Ekbote, Dr. Rajesh Ku- mar and Dr. Bhagwan Toksha. The exhibition was inaugurated in the morning at 10 am with the inaugural projects being Cere- bro and opening the curtains with a blue tooth remote. Some other interesting Science projects were Segway with a handle, Electrophoresis Ophthalmology, Quad copter, Motion Detec- tion Robot and Innovative ways to save energy and time. This

gave students an opportunity to individually investigate scien- tific problems.

The Math exhibition included projects on Illusion, Higher

Mathematical games, 3D Mathematical lanterns, Calendar magic, Monument surface area, Geometry in Architectural models and presentation on Pascal’s triangle and rectangle numbers. The Art exhibition was a testimony to the students’ blossoming imagination as well as a critical and intensely personal record of themselves in relation to the world as every artist dips his brush in his own soul and paints his own nature into his pic- tures. Students exhibited their creativity in Decoupage, Callig- raphy, Warli, Madhubani, Cubistic, Abstract, Impressionism, Optical, Paper craft and Macramé.

The Software exhibition at the Tech and Media Centre show-

cased projects of students from class 6 to 12. The students pre-

sented projects through programs like Monopoly (Visual Basic), Concave mirror (Q-B), Maze game (Scratch), Acrobat- ics (Flash), Management system and Gold Leaf Electroscope (C++). The Sci-fi movie made by the students received acco- lades from one and all. The primary section of Nath Valley school also organized an exhibition with the theme being ‘Nature’. As many as 150 ex- hibits were based on the following themes from various classes:

Class 1- Wonders of Nature, Class 2- Moods of Nature, Class 3 - Destruction of Nature, Class 4- Furies of Nature, Class 5- Gifts of Nature. The students used innovative and eco-friendly ways to make use of waste items like old t-shirts, rag cloth, small boxes, cartons that would be thrown away to make cloth bags, collage of a doll and to depict the scene from the epic Ramayana. Garden pots were used to make a Minion family too. 3D Art and Illusions displayed on the boards turned into a Selfie Corner. Live demonstrations through rap song and skit were also performed by a group of students leaving an ever lasting impact on the audience on topics such as ‘Stop Rub- bish’, ‘Measures to be taken during natural disaster’ and ‘Our Planet in 2050’. This exhibition encouraged students to delve deep into con- cepts that arouse their curiosity. It provided participants an op- portunity to investigate their favorite areas and share them with the school community. It was a learning experience for both the

students and the teachers involved.

I Learn, I Work, I Discover

Little did I know that my school will not just be where learn and sit tests, but where I will imbibe the skill of multi- tasking. I am associated with Nath Valley since 10 years, and the last three years are the most distinct and cherished. I was just a mundane student in the beginning of my 8 th grade until my mother compelled me to think about what will be the special thing in me which will distinguish me from the rest. That was the day I wrote my first poem and rediscov- ered myself to open my window to the world: writing. What happened next was like never before. My school was just the platform I needed to breach new limits and explore new possibilities. In less than three months’ time, I started gaining support and popularity for my work. My house teachers gave me countless opportunities to write and direct assembly scripts. That was just the stepping stone to filling the apparently blank page of my school life. In the 9 th grade, I was summoned a couple of times for help. By then, I was very proud of my school and happy to be a part of it, because it had given me the power and backing to change myself for the greater good. Next, I wrote parts of the compering script for annual day and my seniors appreciated what I did instead of simply denying my inputs. Then, I started to develop a good rapport with my seniors too. All I want to say is that this school is a delightful place. It changes you and your approach towards work and study. In grade 10, I feel as if I am working in a multinational company and I just love it. I like the life I live, a life full of deadlines, commitments, reviews and criti- cism. Seven years from now, if I am able to achieve my dreams and goals, I would invariably give all the credit to my school and my teachers. - Jash Kalyani
