Art explosion by creative geniuses of AVM

At Atmiya Vidya Mandir, the post exam hilarity continued with different activities spouting unbounded fun and joy to the students . This time, it was the creativity under the churn, making the little Picasso…producing instant artists.

Exhilarating their imagination and fostering their aesthetic senses, The Art and Craft department of the school, in guidance of Manish Sir, organised an art and craft workshop for the students of classes 1st to 6th. This workshop was held in association with Pidilite Industries, a well known name in the world of art, craft and creativity. The students of I to VI Std participated in this workshop where in the specially trained staff, experts and artisans from Pidilite, along with the school’s hostel staff and Manish Sir instructed and guided the students step by step on how to create stunning multi-colour art, vibrant and dazzling images with amazing colour combinations to create seamless rainbow designs. It was bursts of inspiration, allowing kids to explore their imagination in a different way. The children were joyfully practising on easy designs with their hand’s natural motions, choosing nicest colour as if brightening their world.

The muddle of mixed paints, the mess of palates and brushes, the numerous innovation of unborn shades with some spills and no clean up…nearly novel designs and new patterns…. it was all free self-expression and spontaneity under creative process. Thus, this workshop increased art skills and self-discovery of the students to relieve creative blocks.

“પાંચ દાણા”

દાણા’ આ બોધકથા ભાષાશિક્ષણ અને વ્યવહારબોધનો ઉત્તમ નમૂનો છે. જેમાં એક શેઠ પોતાના
ચાર દીકરાઓની વહુઓની આવડત અને વ્યવહારકુશળતા જાણવાની ઈચ્છા રાખે છે. આ માટે શેઠ
દીકરાઓની વહુઓને અનાજના પાંચ પાંચ દાણા આપી, દાણાને સાચવી રાખવાનું જણાવે છે. થોડા સમય પછી જ્યારે તેઓ પોતાના દીકરાઓની વહુઓ પાસે પેલા
પાંચ દાણા માંગે છે ત્યારે શેઠને તે વહુઓની સૂઝ, સમજ, આવડત, હોશિયારી અને વ્યવહારકુશળતાનો
ખ્યાલ આવે છે.

તેવી જ રીતે ધોરણ 7 ના વિદ્યાર્થીઓએ વિવિધ અનાજની વિશેષ
માહિતી મેળવી અને પોતાની સૂઝ, સમજ અને આવડતથી અનાજના દાણાને વિવિધ આકારમાં ગોઠવી
કલ્પનારૂપ સર્જન આપ્યું હતું.

AVM Star Voice Hunt 2012-13

Shaking off the winter sloth, Atmiya Vidya Mandir geared up for a high-voltage Pre-Uttarayan Break event.
As students and teachers were getting overwhelmed with countdown of Uttarayan Break, once again the Art and Music department of Atmiya Vidya Mandir laid a platform to support the budding singers to flourish with their inherent talent of singing. The most enchanting grand finale of AVM Star Voice Hunt was held on 10th January 2013. The sole purpose of this event was to give recognition to the talented singers of the school as well as honing the different intricacies of singing.

This great event was preceded by two elimination rounds. First, there was an Open Audition round in which near around 200 students participated, this strength was remarkable enough to conclude that a large number of students of AVM have inclination towards music. The semi-final round was held among 30 selected students which put only 8 students to contest in grand finale.


At the grand finale, upping the tempo further were singers in the solo singers’ category. Geetgauravbhai and Shrimadbhai of Std V enthralled the audience with “Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana…” and “Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le” respectively, first runners-up, Kevalbhai sang the melodic “Butterfly Fly Away”. The winner, Sarvanamanbhai of grade 7, had a huge round of applause coming his way when he sang “Tujhko jo paya”. The audience excitedly shook their heads and soon gasped for breath as Rajbhai Panpaliya of grade 10 sang the most liked “Jee le zara…..”. Surrounded by hair-raising rhythms that only the band members could tell, “There is an appeal in the rawness, it all seems so divine,” said an overjoyed judge Birju Sir.

In this ‘Music Battle,’ all performances were planned and organized to create an attempt to capture the spicy yet melodious flavour of singing on stage. The performances of student-singers were largely of the Modern-Jazz & Contemporary forms, with a high quotient of singing skill and grace. Synchronization and rhythm were the key themes of this singing contest as participants sang groovy numbers. From the intense and hard hitting, to the light hearted and tongue-in cheek, turned out to be a grand hit.

“The challenge was to sing fairly well to coordinate with the type of song selected for singing” said Mr. Mayank (Antriksh Band) one of the judges.

Taking the audience through both the old and new numbers there was an ear-splitting response. The day’s events drew to a close as Ronak Mistry and Anand Pandya gave a scintillating, energy-filled performance on instrumental music.

The finalists ultimately achieved the following positions:

Group A: Std 1 to 5 

  • Geetgaurav Joshi – First
  • Shrimad G Patel – Second
  • Param Thakor – Third
  • Keval Rohit – Fourth

Group B: Std 6 to 10

  • Bhavesh Rajpurohit – Second
  • Raj Panpaliya – Third
  • Nirmal Patel – Fourth

Group: Keyboard

  • Anand Pandya – First
  • Ronak Mistry – Second

Judges: Mayank Sir, Vishal Sir, Birju Sir

The event could not have possibly been the way it happened had it not been for the untiring efforts of the music teachers of Atmiya Vidya Mandir: Somnath Sir and Jaimin Sir supported by students of grade 10.

रंग-बिरंगे मन के विविध रंग

आत्मीय विद्यामंदिर पाठशाला में दिनांक 31 मार्च 2012
से 01 अप्रेल 2012 तक कलाविद् (आर्ट शिक्षक)
श्री.मनीषभाई प्रजापति के मार्गदर्शन में आर्ट मेले का आयोजन  किया गया था। यह रंगो की होली दो दिन तक चली,
जिसमें कक्षा 1 से 6 के बच्चों ने अपनी-अपनी कलाओं को ‘क्ले’, रंग, पृष्ठ (कागज़) आदि के माध्यम से प्रदर्शित किया।

सुबह 10:00 बजे से दुपहर 01:00 बजे तक एवं दुपहर भोजन के पश्चात 01 बजे से
03:00 तक इस आर्ट मेले का आयोजन किया गया ।

इस आर्ट मेले को मार्गदर्शन देने के लिए पीडीलाईट (PIDILITE) संस्था के कलाविद् श्री
रंजीत ताड़वी  एवं  उनके सहायक सदस्यों को निमंत्रित किया गया।
इस आर्ट मेले में विविध प्रकार की प्रवृतियों का आयोजन किया गया।
उसमें  सभी छात्रों को दो जूथ में विभाजित
किया गया।
प्रथम जूथ कक्षा 1 से 3 का
द्वितीय जूथ कक्षा 4 से 6 का
जिसमें प्रथम जूथ के लिए — My  Theme, Sticker
, Sand Paper Painting,
Stick Figures
प्रवृत्तियों का निर्माण छात्रालय के प्रार्थना मंदिर में किया गया एवं द्वितीय जूथ के लिए— Paper Quelling Card,
Sand Art
,Creative Lettering,
Shilpkar Mask
आदि प्रवृत्तियों का निर्माण पाठशाला के प्राटंगण में
किया गया।
इन दो दिन विविध
कला एवं रंगो से खिला हुआ आत्मीय विद्यामंदिर ऐसा दिख रहा था मानो एक सजीला  इन्द्रधनुष
हो। जहाँ भी दृष्टि घुमाएँ वहाँ एक विचार आकार ले रहा था। हर तरफ़ बच्चे अपनी-आपनी
प्रतिभा को दृश्याकर करने में डूबे हुए थे। जगह-जगह दृश्यमान बच्चें ऐसे लग रहे
थें जैसे फूलवारी स्वयं आत्मीय विद्यामंदिर में आ
गई हो।
कोई क्ले से
तो कोई कागज़ से, कोई गोंद से तो कोई पींछी से, कोई शब्दों को सुंदर रूप में मरोड़
रहा था तो कोई आदी मानव की मुखाकृति को वाचा दे रहा था। दृश्य तो बस देखते ही बनता
आचार्य श्री,
शिक्षक श्री एवं दीदी भी इनसे अछूते नहीं रह पाए, वे भी बच्चों के साथ मिलकर बच्चे
बनकर  सभी का उत्साह बढ़ा रहे थें। चारों
तरफ़ का वातावरण कला एवं आर्ट मेले के रंग में रंग गया था। हवा भी आर्ट मेले की
खुश्बू लिए आत्मीय विद्यामंदिर के प्राटंगण से भी दूर तक जाने को मचल रही थी।
बच्चें इतने खुश थें कि वे चाहते थें कि ये प्रवृतियाँ कभी खत्म न हो! किन्तु पुन:
आगमन के लिए कुछ समय तक इस  प्रवृतियो
बाय-बाय कहने का समय आ गया था, इसलिए पूर्ण-विराम तो नहीं, किन्तु अर्ध विराम
लगाना आवश्यक था, अत: 1 अप्रेल 2012 को दुपहर 03:00 बजे इसकी पूर्णाहुति की गई।
रंग एवं कला की है ये दुनियाँ।
कभी आकृति
तो कभी विकृति है ये दुनियाँ।
कभी हरी, कभी लाल तो कभी पीली है ये दुनियाँ।
रंग से भरी रंगीन है ये दुनियाँ,
क्योंकि रंगीले मन की है ये दुनियाँ।

Igniting Scientific Temper

Flying is a dream cherished by almost every child. To give wings to such dreams of students from Std 8, 9 and 10, an aero-modelling workshop was organised during the Christmas weekend. A team of enthusiasts from the Department of Aerospace Engineering (IIT-Bombay) were invited to conduct hands-on sessions on building balsa-wood glider, paper boomerang/plane and flight simulator. Students were also introduced to the designs of peculiar aircrafts and were made aware of the air-crash investigations.
