The event commenced with the hoisting of the Tricolor by Principal Dr. Archana Mishra followed by the symphonious notes of the National Anthem, Jhanda Geet and Saare Jahan se Achha charging the environment with patriotic fervour!
This was followed by an inspirational speech by Head Girl Jaanya Shah (12Gen.) and Head Boy Pratham Raval (12Sc.) who emphasized the potential of our nation to take the centre stage globally and the role of the youth in realizing that dream.

The melodious patriotic songs and exuberant dance performances that followed awakened feelings of patriotism in each member of the gathering even while Principal Dr. Archana Mishra, in her address, sent out a reminder that it’s our collective duty to uphold the values symbolised by the Tiranga.
Additionally, for the alumni members, there were special ‘back to school’ moments wherein they revived fond memories by playing friendly football and basketball matces on their old school ground!
All in all, a truly befitting celebration that marked the important milestone of our nation completing 75 years of independence!
Patriotism in the air …
Navrachana Vidyani students, staff, parents and alumni turned out today morning to celebrate India’s 73rd Independence Day together.
The event commenced with the unfurling of the Tricolor by Principal Dr. Archana Mishra followed by the symphonious notes of the National Anthem, Jhanda Geet and Saare Jahan se Achha charging the environment with patriotism.
This was followed by an interactive speech by Cultural President Ayush Patel and Head Sports Affairs Kanjini Soni who recalled the sacrifices of our freedom fighters and soldiers, as also Barodian Arif Pathan, who was recently martyred in cross border firing.

Next on the agenda was an exuberant dance performance by senior students that invoked the spirit of nationalism in each one of us. To commemorate the sacrifices of our soldiers, our Principal along with the In-charges, unveiled a beautiful work of art prepared by the Council Members as a tribute to martyrs. Principal Dr. Archana Mishra in her address, reiterated that though freedom gives us the right to make choices but making the right choice only comes through wisdom and reminded everyone that ‘Freedom always comes with responsibility’.
In the end, committed to the task of nation building, Council Members, led by our Principal, took individual pledges to make small positive changes which would benefit the community and urged the audience to do the same!
Celebrating Freedom in a virtual setting!
Navrachana Vidyani Vidyalaya students, staff and parents celebrated the 74th Independence Day today by connecting on-air! We were thus able to show our love for our country and also remembered our freedom fighters, as we do every year, on this day.
In the morning, Principal Dr. Archana Mishra, the co-ordinators, office staff and a few teachers assembled at the school ground to commemorate the occasion. The event commenced with the unfurling of the Tri-colour followed by the canorous cadence of the National Anthem, Jhanda Geet, and Saare Jahaan Se Acha. Then, our Principal , in her speech, urged everyone to continue hoping and praying that a day might soon arrive when we attain freedom from the current invisible enemy called COVID-19 and can extricate ourselves from the shackles of masks and sanitizers so that we can express ourselves by shaking hands and hugging each other without any constraint.
A video of the event was streamed for all the remaining NVV family members who could not make it to the school because of social distancing norms having to be followed. However, students had a really memorable time celebrating Independence Day virtually and their teachers also arranged for them fun-filled activities like a pop quiz, singing patriotic songs, drawing, performing dances etc.
Truly, NVV continues to demonstrate that we are simply unstoppable in our determination to provide as many of the range of experiences that make up ‘normal school life’ as possible, even in the midst of the pandemic!!
Happy Teachers’ Day!
In the new normal of online teaching, Navrachana Vidyani Teacher’s Day celebration took on a virtual avatar too!
The day began with each class presenting personalized programs for their respective class teachers wherein they performed, gave voice to their sentiments for their teachers or presented videos of shared moments at school. That one hour of emotional connect really transcended the physical gap, bringing teachers and their dear charges really up close and personal!!
Later in the day, Principal Dr. Archana Mishra along with the Co-ordinators, organised a lively virtual gathering for the staff. Being the host for the day, Archana ma’am set the tone of all round bonhomie by appreciating all teachers for working so diligently ‘behind the screens’ to keep the teaching-learning process on track in these trying times! The feel good quotient remained high with the subsequent item: a heartwarming video from the newly elected Student Council conveying their gratitude towards their teachers. Uniquely, the students used gestures and facial expressions to convey their sentiments about various facets of the pupil-teacher relationship and school life in general!
The Co-ordinators then organised entertaining pop quizzes for their sections, challenging teachers to come up with witty and whacky answers. The teachers too rose to the occasion and participated exuberantly, thinking on their feet to make some really creative responses! Archana ma’am made sure that the Co-ordinators too shared in the all-round merriment by orchestrating a round of Q/Answers for them too! This was followed by the felicitation of teachers who had completed a decade in Vidyani with Archana ma’am commending them for their dedicated service to Vidyani. The virtual happy time culminated with a few of the teachers expressing their emotions in the form of poems.
Thus, although on-air, the Vidyani staff had a whale of a time and together made this Teacher’s Day a truly memorable one!
Life has no class… without teachers!
Awakening joy in creative expression is the supreme art of a teacher, as stated by Einstein. And, the staff at Navrachana Vidyani certainly practise what they preach ! Teacher’s Day was enthusiastically celebrated on August 5 with fun activities and karaoke. While the first half of the day saw students shower love and wishes , in most creative ways, on their educators who teach them the art of living well, in the next half of the day, our self motivated and ‘edu dexterous’ teachers engaged themselves in fun-filled activities like pottery painting, sand art, embroidery, bottle art, tavdi painting, clay modeling, jewellery making, canvas painting and best out of waste. And, to perk up the moment, there were melodious Karaoke performances by our very own teachers led by Archana ma’am herself! Thereafter, the school coordinators were awarded various certificated for their report cards bore an A+ in patience, commitment, dedication , innovation, hard work and inspiration!
The day ended with a token of love presented by Archana ma’am on behalf of the NES Management followed by a scrumptious lunch!
Apart from being a memorable day to take away from work, such novel interludes certainly add to the happiness quotient of our faculty members.
Jingle all the way!!!
‘Christmas’ literally came to visit Vidyani today as children of Grades 1 to 5 squealed with delight at the sight of the ‘jolly good fellow’—their favourite Santa Clause all geared up in the traditional red and white.

The atmosphere was further enlivened with everybody dancing to the merry tunes of the festive season and playing games. It was surely was a charged time, filled with jubilation as teachers, too, joined in the euphoria alongside their students!
A Helping Hand
“Caring has the gift of making the ordinary special.”
―George R. Bach
Today Navrachana Vidyani Vidyalaya and Navrachana School- Sama joined hands in order to help those people who have been stranded in the water logged areas after the incessant rains that lashed Vadodara this week.
Places like Khodiyar Nagar, Roman Park, Chhani Jakatnaka Canal Road and Sanjay Nagar have been badly affected as the basic needs like food and drinking water are also not available.
The Staff members of the two schools prepared food packets and distributed food, water and fruits in those areas as a mark of solidarity and love for the people.
It was indeed a day where the schools got to exemplify to its students that giving back to the community in whatever way we can leads to complete satisfaction.
‘The Great-souled one’- The Only Mahatma
Ethics and values are inculcated into students at Vidyani by honouring great leaders. This year marked the 150th Birth Anniversary of the Father of the Nation. With this in mind, Gandhi Jayanti celebrations started almost a week ago. This is a Government initiative which has continued till October 2nd to not only just commemorate his birthday but also to propagate his message amongst students so that they are inspired to tread on his footsteps. Every day, as part of the assembly activity, various batches of students sing to the soulful tunes of the many songs dedicated to the great leader of the masses; the simple man responsible for teaching the world the values of Truth and Nonviolence. The Vidyani air has been resonating with the melodious renditions of Bapuji’s favourite bhajan – ‘Vaishnava Janato’, Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram, Insaaf ke dagar pe, Dedi tumhe aazadi binaa kadag bina dhaal’ and many more renderings. The final day saw a spectacular dance performance on ‘Bande mein tha dum.. Vande Mataram’ by the students.
It was a week worth honouring the philosophy the ‘Mahatma’ stood for: ‘If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it in the beginning’.
Old traditions die hard !
Respecting and observing the time-honoured traditions is what makes Navrachana Vidyani Vidyalaya stand high above the others. Grades 1 to 12, on October 1 , delved deep into the festive spirit as the School organized ‘Garba Celebration’ to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, darkness into light, and agony into ecstasy. The celebration began with prayers after which the students enjoyed Garba – the folk dance of Gujarat- with their peers and teachers in the different venues allotted to them. Vidyanians burned up the dance floor by grooving to the upbeat and dance worthy folk tracks with popular traditional as well as the contemporary forms of the dance.
The lyrical banter, the musical tempo and the spirit of the season together created a symphonic crescendo for all to cherish.
Grooving to the Dandiya beats…
The festive spirit continued at Vidyani for Grades 1 and 2 on October 17 and Grades 4 to 6, today.
The students came dressed in traditional Garba and Dandiya attire which made for a spectacular visual treat for everyone to see and relish. The children’s joy knew no bounds as they danced on the Dandiya folk songs. Their joy doubled when Principal, Dr. Archana Mishra and their teachers too took part in this footloose frenzy!
It was indeed a day full of fun and fervour as the children went back home thrilled to enjoy their holidays!
HALF MARATHON-EKTA KOOCH
For a United Nation…
United we stand and divided we fall. To prove this maxim true, Chairperson-NES Tejal Amin called upon all NES institutions to participate enthusiastically in the ‘Bharat Ekta Kooch’.
And, spearheaded by Principal Dr. Archana Mishra, Navrachana Vidyani students, parents and staff responded wholeheartedly by turning out in large numbers for the Kooch from Kirti Stambh to Kothi Char Rasta.
The march was to express support for the historic decision of abrogation of Articles 370 and 35 A taken by our Honourable PM in order to unite the nation. In his speech Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Vijay Rupani urged all citizens to remain united and thereby sound a warning to neighbouring countries that Indians are resolute in their efforts to keep their country together!
The Vidyani family, too, stands committed to support this effort to build a strong and unified nation and today’s show of solidarity was our way of declaring our intent!
