International Dimension in School
Decorah Middle School, USA has been our partner school since 2019. In every academic session, students exchange letters and greetings. During lock down, an online 'Meet and Greet' activity was organised where students of both schools discussed their hobbies and how they spend their lock down days.
The school has partnered with Lifeforte International School, Nigeria on a Project titled "CLUB 2030".Club 2030 is a school club with the aim to create awareness among students about the 17 Sustainable Developmental Goals of the United Nations. Consequently, the club will inspire students to participate in activities that represent the SDGs at present, and in the future. The club will also encourage students to nurture skills that support the goals and to share and spread the vision in their immediate environment and the community at large.
Connecting Classrooms is a global education programme by British Council for schools. It aims to help young people develop the knowledge, skills and values to live and work in a globalised economy and become responsible global citizens. As part of the Connecting Classrooms Programme, Shiv Vani students partnered with Poongmoon School, South Korea on a project titled ‘Critical Look at Advertisement’. Students of class IX & X participated in this activity which aimed to review advertisements from across the world. At the end of a month long research on this project, students exchanged their thoughts, experience and findings. To explore the similarities and differences between our country's culture and that of our partner school, a culture box was exchanged. Students of both the schools exchanged traditional dresses of their country. To inculcate moral values and help students to become global citizens of the future, students of Junior School partnered with Nurettin Topcu School, Turkey on another project titled ‘Value Education’. Activities were planned for value based topics like respect, love, amity, tolerance and empathy.
School Enterprise Challenge Exhibition cum Sales 2016
Shiv Vani feels proud to be part of School Enterprise Challenge, which is an international award program by British Council. This is a program that is designed to transform young people around the world from job seekers into job creators. The program challenges young people to establish a socially responsible, but profitable business at their schools. The business becomes a platform for providing hands-on relevant education to students. The student-led business startup of the school titled, “A Small Step but a Big Leap”, focuses on knowing the potential of India’s small scale industries. To show case their enterprise, our students held an exhibition cum sale of the products they made on 13 August 2016, PTM day, from 9.a.m to 11.30 p.m. The exhibition cum sale was inaugurated by Mr.Prashant Narula, Principal.
On the exhibit were the items like organic manure, eco friendly craft products, home décor items and homemade pickles. Our students received many appreciations and words of encouragement from parents, teachers and visitors.
