Presentation over! Thanks ePals

Our heart felt thanks to ePals and its wonderful team that gave us the rare opportunity to be able to present in Global Education Conference 2010. Thanks to organizers Steve Hargadon, Lucy Gray and Julie Lindsay and all those connected with this amazing event. Today JNV Bhiwani gave presentation "Creativity in various forms". We couldn't believe when we got email of Elizabeth Fish of ePals Corporate asking our willingness to participate in Conference. We thought we haven't done anything extraordinary so we won't be given that opportunity to tell about our collaborative efforts. But thanks to ePals that sponsored us. Marianne of ePals was present during my presentation. Mr. Ghassan, moderator helped during our presentation. Regine Couboe of France joined us too and threw some light on our joint Projects.Thanks to all who joined us. It was a great experience!

Global Education Conference 2010

At last the wait is over now and the awaited Gobal Conference will begin tomorrow. It will be a busy week indeed. Thanks to Mr. Steve Hargadon who motivated our School by allowing us to participate in this great event. Our journey began last year 2009 in month of October when British Council's Mr. Chris Swift encouraged us to collaborate in International Projects. And we must say that without his constant feedbacks and motivation we could not have got this much recognition. Today we are participating in more than 150 Projects and we have collaborated with more than 30 different countries across the globe. For a school situated in a remote corner it's a great achievement. As an Ambassador School of Connecting Classrooms Online of British Council we have grave responsibilities of bringing closer different nations and help them collaborate in International Projects. Now this new role of mentor is demanding indeed! We are enjoying this privilege. Our contributions are so much scattered that we find it difficult to put them together! One can see here the projects we are participating in:
Message from Mr. Chris:
"Nice to hear your good news and your work with ePals and Global Education Conference. This is a big development that you have made over one year, so well done on this.I have seen your blog and was really impressed by the way you have taken to the idea of international education & adopted it in school. You are definitely on the right path with this so keep up the good work.
All the best,

Children Day celebrated on 14th November

Today Children Day was celebrated in our School. Many cultural programmes were held on this occasion. All teachers paid homage to our first Prime Minister Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru whose birthday is celebrated as Children Day in India. We were reminded of the efforts of our beloved 'Chacha' Nehru who brought about a great change in lives of children.We have special attachment to him as all JNVs are named after his name "Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas". His grandson Mr. Rajeev Gandhi opened these Schools for rural and underprivileged children. We have to fulfil dreams cherished by our beloved Chacha Nehru by striving hard to achieve excellence in all spheres.
