Annual School Report

The annual school report is a reflection of our achievements, endeavours, aspirations and activities of the past one year.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission statement of the school epitomises our beliefs, philosophy, values and ethos. This lays emphasis on the holistic development of the students through experiential education.

Our journey towards excellence continues for enrichment and development of the students on intellectual, spiritual, physical and moral levels. At Vivek High , life becomes a ground where, through learning and experience, students imbibe organisational skills, critical thinking abilities, public speaking skills, sense of social responsibility, leadership qualities and a global mindset, all of which are truly the attributes of a 21st century learner.

THE PRINCIPAL

Under the able stewardship of the Principal Mrs. Renu Puri, the school has taken many steps forward towards holistic education of the students. 

JUNIOR WING 

The first step that a child takes into the portals of Vivek High. 

MONTESSORI EDUCATION 

Education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the child and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences in the environment. This is how Maria Montessori describes education. 

The Junior Wing is now an 'Environment' that offers the child this opportunity to have the experiences required for education in the true sense.

An education acquired by children who are driven by inner motivation.

MONTESSORI ELEMENTARY IN CLASS 1:

The kindergarten classrooms have been functional as prepared environments for the last three years now. This academic year, Class 1 classrooms were upgraded to a Montessori setup to suit the needs of these 'New Children' who have spent three years in Montessori Kindergarten.

The children after 3 years of Montessori curriculum are eager learners who imbibe all information available in their environment. These children have amazing listening skills and nothing escapes their attention. Exhibiting a need for applying what they have learnt in Kindergarten, these children are now working more on paper and authenticating their work through Montessori material. 

The staff have been undergoing enrichment programmes to prepare themselves for the environments. Ms. Meenu Sahi, the Head of Junior Wing has successfully completed the AMI Elementary Diploma for ages 6-12 years under Mr. Greg Macdonald, Director of Elementary Education at Montessori Institute in San Diego, USA. Ms. Sahi also observed the Montessori Accredited School Environment in Forest Bluff Montessori School in Chicago for three weeks. This school was started in 1982. Ms. Sahi did practice teaching for four weeks in the largest Montessori School in Spain which came into being 50 years ago.

STAFF ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMMES FOR ELEMENTARY TEACHERS 

Ms. Anita Joel has also successfully completed the AMI Diploma Course for ages 6-12 years and is now assisting Ms. Sahi to train staff for Montessori Elementary Classes. Staff members of Classes 1 and 2 have been undergoing in-house intensive training and have also gone for short workshops and trainings to Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore.

STAFF ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMMES FOR KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS 

The Kindergarten Staff along with the Junior Wing Head, Ms. Meenu Sahi and the Junior Wing Coordinator, Ms. Minna Mann have been working hard for the last 2 years and are now in the process of completing their Diplomas for the AMI Course for ages 3-6 years.

TODDLERS CUT OFF AGE REDUCED TO 18 MONTHS 

A deeper understanding of the Montessori pedagogy and the Absorbent Mind of the child led to the decision of lowering the entry age of Toddlers Class to 18 months. This decision has yielded great success.

Furniture and setting has been downsized to facilitate the child to experience functional independence.

CELEBRATIONS  

Celebrations in the Junior Wing are aimed at making children culturally aware and well informed. It gives the children experiences that enrich their minds and make them open minded and tolerant. The children can be seen partaking langar on Gurpurab, celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi, Dussehra, Baisakhi, Easter and thanking their didis on labour day.

MUSICAL MORNINGS 

The children of kindergarten travelled to different

regions of India to celebrate the different cultural and religious festivals of our country such as Makar Sakranti, Durga Puja, Lohri, Dusherra, Diwali and other National Festivals. 

Each musical morning was vibrant, festive, full of songs, stories and colourful dances.

THE SPACE ODYSSEY 

The students of Kindergarten, embarked on an odyssey through space. The experience was nothing short of stellar and every child’s imagination was fuelled with the knowledge they gained through the whole process of enactment, songs, dance and learning in the classes about the Solar System and their own Milky Way Galaxy.

ANNIE – A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE BY CLASS 3 

This year’s annual production, Annie by Class 3 was exhilarating. The children performed with great confidence. The singing by the choir was par excellence and the music was foot tapping. The production was very well received by the audience. The play was directed by Mr. Vikram Mamik. 

THEMATIC ASSEMBLIES – CLASSES 2 & 3 

The Class specific thematic assemblies are an annual feature of the Junior Wing that gives each and every child an opportunity to perform before an audience and gain confidence. The thematic assemblies this year covered various festivals and other relevant topics. The children conveyed the essence of their topics through dance dramas, songs and poetry recitations.

INTRA CLASS SOCCER MATCHES 

This session saw some thrilling intra class soccer matches by Classes 1, 2 and 3. 

COLLABORATION OF PARENTS THROUGH CLASSROOM VISIT 

To bring about a collaboration between the parents and the school, the parents of Nursery, LKg and UKg students were invited to observe the children at work in the Montessori Environments.

The parents gave an encouraging feedback. 

COOKING ACTIVITY 

Cooking activity in kindergarten has emerged highly beneficial in many ways. 

The idea behind parents providing raw material instills a gratifying feeling in the child of providing food to his/her community.

It inculcates a feeling of sharing resources.

The kids become self reliant by involving themselves in preparation of meals.

The children get exposed to eating a variety of foods and it eliminates the habit of fussing over food.     

NABI VISIT

The students of classes 1, 2 and 3 availed a wonderful opportunity to visit a traveling exhibition titled 'For the Greatest benefit of Humankind' by Nobel Media (Sweden) on the lawns of National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute (NABI) campus. The exhibition was highly interactive and showcased the contributions of Nobel Laureates. 

ANNUAL SPORTS DAY

Keeping in mind the value of sports for the development of children, the Junior Wing held its Annual Sports Day. As many as 750 children from the primary and pre-primary classes participated in various events such as the march past, sports drill and a wide variety of races.

The next step that a student takes is in the Senior Wing, class 4 onwards.
