Seminars & Workshops
VJV believes in conducting time-to-time seminars and workshops both for students and their staff. Motivational speeches by the most popular speakers inspire the teachers to extract their best output to the children.
This session, the international motivational speaker Mr. Sachin Barghate, the founder of Aspire (The Institute of Human Development), who has hosted the show “The Real Hero” on Zee TV and has been honoured by Youth Icon, Mr. Dilip Chopra of Gondia (Maharashtra) who delivers speeches on “Management of Schooling” and who himself is conducting a school of about 4000 input strength and Mr. Govind Mudliyar, the eminent educationist of Chhattisgarh, have already been called by VJV. A parenting workshop has been presided by the chairman of Samanvay group, Mr. Parikshit Jobanpotta. The teachers have gathered many useful tips from above speakers.
To become environmental friendly, VJV undertakes projects such as to make the children aware of saving water, earth protection, and nature protection and greenery richment. The entire campus of VJV is lush green. Tall bamboo trees have been planted around the periphery of the entire campus. Almond trees around the playground are standing straight, giving their shadow and sweet message to us, the human race.
Water recharging process keeps the underground water level of the campus intact. Children of all classes are encouraged to plant seeds and take care of the plants growth by their own. Various coloured flowers of the small plants blossoming in every season of the year adorn the beauty of the VJV campus.
We strive to create a pollution free atmosphere (and of course the environment) at VJV. Let us put hands-in-hands to maintain this type of environment awareness at our campus.
School Assembly & School Band
VJV School assembly is the only of its type among all Educational Institutes. It is unique in the sense that apart from the national character, we build the ethical character in the soft minds of the children. Many visitors visit VJV Kumhari only to witness the Assembly which runs from 8:40 a.m. to 9 a.m.. This 20 minutes short interval imparts the whole theme of the education. The impact of the energy gained during this period keeps the children charged for the whole day.
Birthday celebrations in Classical Indian style, calling and dispersing children through musical band, recital and chanting of religious stotra, news reading and question-answer session, are the few highlights of the fantastic assembly.
The other attraction of VJV is its School band and its occasional march past in which both boys and girls participate willingly with interest.
“Every child is genius.” says Albert Einstein. We believe the same. A child who is weak in written or reading skill, may not necessarily be a weak child. He or she has some Instinct talent. Every child has some natural calibre. We, elders, are supposed to brighten the talent and natural calibre of the child.
As such we choose some children who have not proven their skills and ability in the traditional examination pattern of question answer and grades, but have talent in some other fields such as sports, literary activities, co-curricular activities, communication or dance, music, fine arts etc. and make them perfect in their field of interest.
Such children maybe weak in eyes of their parents, relatives and friends. But we believe that no student is ever weak. We conduct separate sections for such children. Immaterial of grade and class, we put them in the same section & strive our best to enrich their talent. Such classes are the star classes of VJV. The evening remedial classes for hostellers, the Sunday spoken English classes and everyday one class of handwriting improvement and communication skill development classes for all students, is another aspect of VJV.
VJV strives for Local, Domestic & International Excursions. Usually, the local outings are made with hostel students while domestic & international educational tours are organised with Dayboarders and Hostellers, mostly during summer vacations.
This year hostel children, both boys & girls, visited Maitri Garden, Nandanvan Zoo & Ambuja Mall. No additional charges are taken for such outings. However, the domestic & international tours are to be contributed by the parents. During summer vacation of the session 2018-19, a domestic tour to Delhi/Mumbai is scheduled in the month of April-May. Such educational tours not only keeps the children acquainted with the nature but also feeds them with some learnings.
On Childrens' Day, 14th November 2018, 8 students of VJV together with two teachers & Principal have already visited Honorable President of India at President House, New Delhi
Scout & Guide Programme
VJV, in collaboration with M/s Universal Scout & Guide Agency, New Delhi, conducted a two-days Scout & Guide Camp for all students of VJV Kumhari Campus. 258 children participated and enjoyed the event.
