Shiv Vani Model Senior Secondary School

Director's / Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Shiv Vani, a school that cares, a school that shares and a school that dares! 2011 is a landmark year in the school’s history as it completes thirty years of existence. In this thirty year odyssey, the school has established its forte, i.e. combining the strength of tradition with the daring to embrace the latest strides in educational methodology and technology.

As you might be aware, our school has whole-heartedly adopted the recent educational reforms initiated by the CBSE, viz the system of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) systems for all classes. It is our endeavor to provide a stress free and joyful learning environment for our students especially in the primary classes. So, from the 2011-12 session, terminal exams will be discontinued for classes I-V. Evaluation will be through assessment of worksheets, periodic tests, checklists, students portfolios, anecdotal records etc. thus, the student’s participation in class, house and club activities, morning assembly/display board duties, group discussions, project work etc. will carry due weight age. Implementing the CCE system will thus allow learning to become experiential and the observation of the student’s life skills, emotional skills and social skills will enable teachers to look at children as children.

This almanac will provide a vital link of communication between you and us and we hope that you continue to remain involved in your child’s education. The schedule for periodic unit tests for classes I to V, class tests for Formative Assessments from classes VI to X and XI & XII are attached in the following green pages.

To conclude, I reaffirm mine, the entire 130+ staff’s and the Management’s commitment to our common goal-nurturing the students so that they start thinking out of the box and scale greater heights of creativity and achievement.

Mr. Prashant Kumar
