Education is the weapon to improve one’s life. Mathematics is the cradle of all creations, without which the world cannot move an inch. Be it a cook or a farmer, a carpenter or a mechanic, a shopkeeper or a doctor, an engineer or a scientist, a musician or a magician, everyone needs mathematics in their day-to-day life. Even insects use mathematics in their everyday life for existence.Maths Activities for existence.

For many, the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is a forgotten oddity—a chart of boxes 🔍filled with mysterious, cryptic letters last ♈️encountered on the wall of high school chemistry class. Conquering matter is to understand it ; and understanding matter is necessary to understanding the universe and ourselves ; and that therefore Mendeleev’s Periodic Table ; which just during those years we were learning to unravel ; was poverty. Mr Vipin Sharma (Vice Principal, VWS) enlightening the students with the concepts of “Periodic Table” amidst the COVID 19 that helped students understand not only how it’s organized but also how to identify and apply patterns and relationships. https://youtu.be/E4x5jcxn_WI “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” It’s International Dance Day — time to get those feet moving!

Everyone has heard of the phrase, “survival of the fittest.” So far no species has been successful to steal that title from us humans. Animals life is at stake because of this title and has always been. They had always been treated as a source of human pleasures and desires. Hunting and poaching of animals for their skin, teeth and meat has been constant, such activities have led to the endangerment and extinction of many animals, birds and plant species. Although there are many natural reserves, sanctuaries, national parks and animal shelters today (more than ever) the reckless consumption of animal products has continued and disturbed the balance in nature. Humans don’t realise that soon there will be nothing left to extract from nature if we don’t control and change our way of living. We must learn to adapt to a lifestyle which is less harmful for the ecosystem and more conservative and safe for other species to thrive.To make students aware about the endangered species ; Vivekananda World School encouraged them to perform various activities “Family is not an important thing ; it’s Everything” Today is a day of family, love, happiness and being together. It’s a great day to do everything that you want together with your beloved ones. Family is a network of relationships in which parents are connected to children, children are connected to parents and siblings are connected to each other via strong string of love and care. A sweet and secure feeling comes in our mind when we think about family. Love is base of a happy family and care is a strong bond which keeps the connection among the members of a family. Time for each other keeps family members close to each other thus creating a strong happy family. To remind and recognize the importance of a family, Vivekananda World School celebrated International Family Day . Science has made a mark in almost everything we do. Without science life would be unimaginable. Right from the time we wake up, till the time we go to sleep, the role of science is unbelievable immense. Inventions like the electric fan, and the electric bulb have made our lives easier. Other inventions like the television, computers, refrigerators have made our life more comfortable. Vivekananda World School motivated students to perform various handmade experiments like lung model ; windmill etc Waste has to be looked upon as a global issue as it concerns proper sanitation. An excellent plan to reuse the waste will give room for provision of potable food, water, shelter, communication and transport. Basic essential to society and also the economy as a whole. In many countries, there are minimal to absolutely no rules for regulating the waste. There are no rigorous enforcement or implementation of the same leading to opting of cheapest available course of action for the removal of the waste. Plastic is one of the most dangerous items that take hundreds of years to degrade. It is hazardous due to Styrofoam, polystyrene foam in it. Hence, there is a ban on plastic. Replacing them are Biodegradable plastics, which is, plant derived resin like polylactic acid. Vivekanandans performed various activities on waste management with excitement. “Biological diversity resources are the pillars upon which we build civilizations.” Biological diversity is often understood in terms of the wide variety of plants, animals and microorganisms, but it also includes genetic differences within each species. If we pollute the air, water and soil that keep us alive and well, and destroy the biodiversity that allows natural systems to function, no amount of money will save us. Vivekananda World School celebrated International Day of Biological Diversity to raise awareness of this day and see what we are doing to help biodiversity flourish In light of the global pandemic of COVID-19, we encourage Vivekananda World School to participate in spreading the importance of Milk in a person’s life. It is the first food of a child after birth and is perhaps the one food a person consumes throughout life. And not just humans, milk is the first food any living creature in the world is fed with. Every single nutrient which the human body needs on a daily basis is present in milk like protein, calcium, healthy fat, iodine, potassium, vitamin B2 and B12 and phosphorus. And it is not just the nutritional value of this drink, milk and milk products are a million dollar industry in the world which feeds humans and the economy as well. Thus, it also celebrates the efforts of the people involved in this industry and their efforts to meet the dairy needs of people in the country.

Food is a universal necessity. But it is only human beings who endeavour to transform food into something more. Preparing food and feeding people brings nourishment not only to our bodies but to our spirits. Feeding people is a way of loving them, in the same way that feeding ourselves is a way of honoring our own createdness and fragility. Each culture enjoys its way of cooking, its meals and food in general. For lots of people it is a joy and something they will never leave or stop. People will keep on cooking no matter what because human in their nature they get bored and that’s a thing in all cultures. Cooking has always been a good hobby for people and part of relaxing and fun entertainment for some category of people.

It serves as a tool for development and as a means not just of transportation but also of access to education, health care and sport. The idea for the day is to motivate and inspire people towards having more tolerance, understanding and respect for one another. The other thing is that the bicycle signifies a more sustainable means of transport that is not only good for people but for the environment and the economy too. On this World Bicycle Day, Vivekananda World School strived towards fitness and inculcated healthier lifestyle . “Environment is no one’s property to destroy; it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect.” A clean environment is very important to live a peaceful and healthy life but our environment is getting destroyed day by day. The situation of our environment is declining day by day due to pollution and global warming. To safeguard the environment for a better future, we should promote environmentally friendly development in our country. The environment gives us countless benefits that we can’t repay our entire life. As they are connected with the forest, trees, animals, water, and air. The forest and trees filter the air and absorb harmful gases. Plants purify water, reduce the chances of flood maintain natural balance and many others. To make life better and more natural, World Environment Day was celebrated by performing art and craft activities and watering the plants by Vivekanandans to bring some positive changes in the environment around the world.

Drug abuse can cause serious physical and mental deterioration. The problem can tear apart the family structure and make it hard for learning. Difficulties on the job due to drug abuse make it hard for employers to run their businesses.
