NATURE: Embodiment of God

World Environment Day is observed on June 5th every year to promote awareness on the importance of preserving our Mother Nature. It is very important to understand and thus develop a sense of solving negative issues associated with environment and ways to take corrective actions.

World Environment Day was first celebrated in 1973. It means to tackle environmental challenges that include climatic changes, global warming, disasters and conflicts, harmful substances, environmental governance, eco system management and resource efficiency.

Eco club of JGRVK celebrated World Environment Day on June 4th. The program was presided by Sri Rangaraj Iyengarji, a member of JGRVK. The middle and senior school students joined the legacy of the school by taking part in the Annual Environment awareness. The students enthusiastically participated in this programme by performing a skit on pollution. They became a part of this programme by planting as many saplings as possible in the school premises. The students were also motivated to plant saplings at home and then get them to school on a particular date for the exhibition.

AKSHARABHYASAM

The most ancient Vedic Culture of Bharat has evolved around several Phylosophical, Scientific Rituals starting from a man’s birth till his death.

Among them ‘Aksharabhyasam’ is one of the most important rituals where the Mahadwara of knowledge will be opened by the child’s first activity of writing on a Rice Plate with a Turmeric stick, a medical and sacred herb, inscribing the celestial sound ‘OM’.

JGRVK performed this sacred function on 5th June, 2011 with the blessings of Poojya Sri Sri Swamiji of Chinmaya Mission, Bengaluru.

Story time folks!!!!

Once upon a time ....

The winds of change have been blowing across JGRVK. The one year old institution has a rock solid foundation of Panchamukhi Shikshana and the vision of the bright future. Though it had to cross many hurdles like any other new foundation, yet the bliss of ultimately having it is really an awesome feeling. Isn’t it?? The steady movement of the school is praiseworthy. The single aim of making education a reality is helping it open new vistas of life as a whole. In the process, the very aim has become broader and bigger.      

The sole objective of the English Literary Club is to develop language skills. However, cultivating love for the subject is also one of the main hidden reasons. In this regard, the concept of ‘Story Writing Competition’ was brought up. The young mind is full of fresh and new talent and Story Writing will further help these little genius minds to grow and develop in the best possible manner.  However, to begin with, a natural respect and sincerity towards the subject is equally important.   

The English Story Writing Competition was held for Grade VI to IX on 18th June 2011. The programme was inaugurated Sri Chandrasekhar and Sri Harish and was presided over by our correspondent Sri Maheshwaraiah. The guest selected the topic for different class levels after which the participants started to write the story on respective topics with determination to give their best within the stipulated time.

The faculty in-charge for the club is Mrs. Anupama Chandrashekar and Prema Surendar.

The winners of the competition are as follows:

English essay writing competition:   exposing the writer within

WRITERS REGIN.....

The best platform for budding writers.....

Let’s go down the highway of writing and may the steady hum of our vocabulary steer our minds to a creative journey filled with discoveries of hidden talent within every individual. This creative endeavour was taken by JGRVK through an essay writing competition in our campus.  If it’s true that birds can listen to thoughts and feelings then, every passing bird experienced the flow of words, thoughts, passion and intellect.

SDC10673    SDC10715  

The competition was held for the classes 3rd to 5th as the part of their CCE, among them the best five from each class were selected for the finals. The chosen students were given topics ranging from themes that were personal to introspective and evocative. Our Chief guest Dr. Venkat Padmanab, Principal of Ramana Vidya Niketan, Bangalore announced the following topic for the classes:

 

III- My Ambition in Life
IV- Computer is a Boon
V- My Dream of India

Students came prepared with beautiful ideas; some wrote intuitively; some had impromptu words flowing through them. Ponderous poses were witnessed with far away looks waiting for inspiration to descend, as noticed from the careful movement of the eyes while some followed the words in their mind; some vociferously attacked the page; at some moments, the grit of writing well churned ideas flew over the pages with sweet smiles on the faces of the budding writers.

Results have been announced but the joy of participating prevailed in all the serious Enthusiasts.

Report on Painting competition (Primary section)

Showering Towers with colours”
Painting Competition Middle and Senior.

Indian painting tradition goes back to antiquity, as an evidence from the murals of Ajanta, Ellora and other frescoes. The Buddhist palm leaf manuscripts, the Jain texts and the Decccan, Mughals and Kangra schools of miniature Indian Painting.

Indian Painting is an old tradition, with ancient texts outlining theories of colour and anecdotal accounts suggesting that it was common for households to paint their doorways or indoor rooms where guests resided.

Drawing is an excellent visual medium, which is an outlet for students to display their talents in capturing nature, observing that though children were always close to nature, they tend to break away themselves from it as they grow older.

By learning the beauty and significance of nature at young age, children will lead environmental-friendly life for the rest of their life.

    

A class level competition was conducted as a part of CCE and the best students from each class were selected. Thirty Five students took part in the painting competition, which was held on 22nd  June 2011 in the school premises(Multipurpose hall).Middle and senior school submitted paintings that they had drawn under the awareness campaign theme i.e. A carnival, Save water, The village and My feeling on the environment. The chief guest was Sree Ashish.N.Sabnis an IT consultant who graced the occasion and declared the topic on the spot.

Blooming Buds

Indian Painting provides an aesthetic continuum that extends from the early civilization to the present day. This form of art in India is vivid and lively, refined and sophisticated as well as bold and vigorous at the same time. From being essentially religious in purpose in the beginning; Indian paintings have evolved over the years to become a fusion of various traditions.



In this art competition we believe, it is important to develop the artistic talents of the school students. This competition helps to reach the goals and to encourage the students to show their talents and help them grow both mentally, physically and culturally, and we are happy and satisfied with the positive outcomes of this competition.

  

A class level competiton was conducted as a part of CCE and the best students from each class were selected. Ninety eight students took part in the painting competition held on 23rd June 2011 in the school premises(Multipurpose hall).Primary school students submitted paintings ,they drew on the theme Class I-The park/Fruits, Class II-My Home, Class III-The vegetable shop, Class IV-The fruits shop, Class V-At the zoo with your family announced by the chief guest Sri Sreekanth Manager at Volvo India Pvt Ltd.

The Darker Side of India: a boon in disguise

Our Country has been so richly blessed by the Almighty that those who live in it have to be more grateful & answerable for all the benefits that God has given us without even asking for it. So where lies the fault line? Why are we so stressed? What prevents us from being grateful in words and deeds?

We must provide right type of education from the beginning which helps our children to become “complete citizens” of the global village. Our objective is to create a man of heart whose solid foundation is to be laid in the home and at the school right from inception. Our Silver line can be seen through the efforts of our students of class VI – IX and staff who went to visit ‘SEVAKENDRA’ in Byapanahalli and Indiranagar on 25.06.2011(Saturday). They interacted with the deprived and destitutes living in various slum areas. Students have realized the importance of charity for the down trodden. They have started contributing a very little amount from their pocket money for the same cause. The essence of the entire program is to develop strong human values i.e. care, concern, compassion, sympathy which are the content of one’s character.

Guru Purnima - A perfect time to thank our Guru’s….

“Ajnaanang Timiraaandhasya Jnaanaanjana Salaakayaa;
Chakshurunmilitang Yena Tasmai Sree Gurave Namah!”


With Blessings from our Gurus, the event of Gurupurnima took place in JGRVK campus on 15th July 2011 which was a Friday. The whole school took part in the auspicious celebration and enjoyed the flow of energy in great heaps. The Program started at 8.30 a.m. It started with the holy lines of गुरुर्ब्रह्मागुरुर्विष्णुःगुरुर्देवोमहेश्वरः|गुरुःसाक्षात्परब्रह्मतस्मैश्रीगुरवेनमः|| followed by Guru Vandana (salutations to the Guru).  The welcome speech was delivered by our respected Principal, Kumari Minakshi Das. This presentation was a collection of melodious songs and Stotras (verses) interspersed with beautiful Kannada skit on Ekalvya, experiences, classical dance based on Bharatmata, interactions and inspiring talk on this auspicious occasion on Guru Purnima by our teachers and students. The programme was highlighted on the significance of the ‘Guru’ and his major role and responsibility in molding his students.  

The speakers of the day focused the importance of the Guru and shad-gunas. 'Guru' in India, holds a supreme significance. Guru is a person with revered personality, who by his teachings enlightens us. He introduces us to the vast world of knowledge and shuns our ignorance. He teaches us, he guides us and he protects us from all sorts of dangers and sins. Perhaps, that's the reason why Kabir in one of his songs said, that if God and Guru stand side by side, the first adoration and worship should be offered to Guru and then to God. This is because through Guru we can recognize and realize the significance of God.

Explaining the importance of the day, Our Chief Guest Sri Rangraj Iyengarji (the Governing Council Member of JGRVK) enlightened our teachers with his inspiring and motivating words. Moreover, the presence of Sri S.B. Maheshwariah (Correspondent) and Smt. Ashwin Londe brought more grace and honour to the entire show. Finally the Vote of thanks was rendered by our beloved Headmistress Smt. Jayanthi Rajkumar. Thus, ended an eventful day of the auspicious Guru Purnima with singing of Vande Mataram…

TRAINING ON INTERACTIVE BOARD: AN INFORMATIVE SESSION

JGRVK has introduced a new tool for imparting education which is known as the interactive board. This effective board can be called ‘a little genius’ as it is immensely helpful. However, the training to operate this board needs lot of skill and practice. Therefore, a person from the EDURITE group had come to train the faculty of the school. Mr. Naveen conducted an interactive training session which was quite interesting and beneficial at the same time. Teachers were taught how to use the board easily with the board pen. The hardware part of the board was also shown.

  

The session went on extensively for two continuous days (16.7.11 & 17.7.11) and the teachers were given a chance to practice and learn. With the help of the board, the lesson plan, the study material, the research work etc can be prepared with great ease. You name it and the magic board will present it in front of you. Therefore, learning and understanding was never so easy before. The children of JGRVK are blessed because even they can use the board themselves for better understanding of the subject.

POINT OF VIEW ON CCE ORIENTATION PROGRAMME

Teaching is not a job, it is a sacred task where teachers dedicate themselves to the task of innovation, exploration and implementation. In their sacred hands lie hundreds and thousands of citizens in making.

Student’s all round growth and development revolves round ‘Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation’ which provides a holistic approach to teaching-learning process that includes both scholastic and co-scholastic areas of a learner’s growth with particular reference to attributes, skill, scientific skill, sports, games and art education as well as co-curricular activities.

Considering its significance, an orientation programme on CCE was conducted on 18th July in JGRVK which was attended by Sri. S.B. Maheshwariya, Correspondent JGRVK along with all primary, middle and senior teachers from all faculties. The main essence of this interactive orientation programme is to motivate the teachers to strengthen the children so that they can spread their wings and venture into the fantastic realm of education, literature, technology, human values, aesthetic values and emotive elements in their lives.

Visit to ISCON

Sprititual enrichment is one of the aspects of our Panchamukhi Shikshana. The students of middle and senior sections visited the Iscon Temple on 6th of August 2011 to enrich their spiritual quotient.  Students of grade VI-IX assembled to School as usual. After the assembly they alighted the school bus with their respective Class Teachers and two of their subject teachers to the temple. The children enjoyed the journey singing, and playing. The temple was crowded as it was a weekend. The children had the ‘darshana’ of the presiding deity, Lord Sri Krishna.  The children did do little shopping within the temple premises. They bought few idols, photographs, key rings of Lord Krishna for their near and dear ones. It was a coincidence that the visit was arranged on the shravana shanivara , an auspicious day for Lord Vishnu. On the whole the visit was a memorable experience.

English recitation competition. Calling Little Poets

Reciting raises retention. When you know you are going to recite something in your own words, you pay more attention. It forces you to remember in a much better way. Recitation promotes concentration and forms a sound basis for understanding the following paragraph. It ensures that facts and ideas are remembered accurately. At JGRVK, a recitation competition for students of classes I and II was organized on Tuesday, the 9th of August 2011. This competition was held twice as a part of CCE and we selected the best five students from each section. The panel of judges were Sri.Ramesh (English faculty for “Vikasa Vidhya Kendra”) and Smt.Thirumani (resource person for JGRVK and RVK). Principal (JGRVK), Kum. Minakshi Das and Smt. Jayanthi Rajkumar (headmistress, Primary Section ) added extra elegance to the occasion. The students of classes I and II, so called our “Little Poets” recited the poetry with actions and expressions. Each ‘little poet’ exhibited their talents wonderfully and enthusiastically. The jury admired all the kids in particular and the event in general.

Building new relationships is the essence of any festivity. Raksha Bandhan is a celebration of the loving bond between brothers and sisters. On this day siblings pray for each others’ well being and wish for their happiness, safety and long life.

English seminar

A seminar is a meeting where papers on a specific issue are delivered for the increase of knowledge on the concerned subject. The purpose is to arrive at the truth of the issue which is enormous considering the extent of knowledge that man has gained to observation, experimentation and inference. In the light of this three aforementioned, it is possible to have divergent viewpoints & yet agree in the final analysis even though the deliberation may be apparently contradictory as each person has his own say. It is only through debate & analysis that a point can be filtered down to the objective at stake. That is why the debates are held to discover the truth and seminars are disguised debates which appear harmless and yet very meaningful and logical.

CORRUPTION FREE INDIA

Corruption is a global phenomenon. Today, more and more countries have realized the impact of corrupt practices. But in India corruption levels have increased substantially with the passage of time. The level of corruption has moved upward from petty corruption to corruption of the highest form.

The anti-corruption drive, inspired by Anna Hazare, has drawn the crowd from various walks of life from different parts of the country to raise their voice against corruption. This 74-year-old got India’s Facebook and Twitter generation to step out of Coffee bars, chuck their designer caps, headphones and Ray Bans for ‘Gandhi topis ‘and wave the tricolor and shout “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”

When the country is changing hats in the fortnight, JGRVK, did its bit by observing “A day against Corruption” on 26th of August 2011.Banners were tied at the entrance , posters and sloganeering against corruption was prepared by the students of classes 6 to 9 and displayed. The students delivered motivating speeches followed by a teacher also highlighted about the topic. At the end of the day the children watched a short documentary film on how corruption takes its ugly roots in the society. Teachers lit diyas and gave it to the students, and the staff held lighted lamps in their hands and pledged that they will neither give nor take bribe and they will fight corruption. Perhaps, we need a thousand such ANNA HAZARES to fight and destroy the monster.

Yoga Session for Teachers

Three things are necessary for a bird to fly, the two wings and the tail as a rudder for steering. Jnana is one wing, Bhakti is the other wing and yoga is the tail that keeps the balance of the bird. As we know that each soul is potentially divine, the goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature; both external and internal. One can perform this either by worship or psychic control and can be free. This is the basic concept of religion. Yoga unfolds a new depth to our lives i.e ‘enjoy both peak and valley’. Be happy with the Peak and relax in the valley. In order to imbibe this rich philosophy in the minds of the staffs of JGRVK Smt. Sarada Devi, an intellect of Yoga conducted a session for the teaching and admin staff on 7th Sept. in the school premises. Yoga today is essentially a way of life that integrates the means of harmonizing the body, mind, and spirit. It is all about a series of postures, breathing exercises and meditation. The popularity of yoga and meditation is increasing day by day because human lives have become immensely stressful.

However, for the month of August, the most presentable class trophy is bagged by II-B. The class teacher is Gayatri. We wish them, CONGRATS!!!

Sri Poorna Pragnananda Swamiji provoked us to think what is education and the need for education. This lead us to think in philosophical and spiritual terms about education so that we guide our students in the same way. Further we were also provoked by detailed works and life achievements of Swami Vivekananda by Sri Kru. Suryanarayana ji.

Yoga sessions and Bhajan were routine and integral part of the complete programme headed by Sri Iyengarji and Smt. Sharada ji.
