FANCY DRESS COMPETITION 2011
The fancy dress competition at Kumara Rani’s Chettinad Vidyalaya for LKG and MONTESSORI children was conducted at the AUDITORIUM.
Apart from the usual Gods Godesses, Bharathiyars, Vivekanandas & Thiruvalluvars, some of the different stokes were – Neil Armstrong, Man Mohan Singh, James Bond etc. A young politician explaining the need of fight against corruption was truly inspiring.
There were also social messages addressing Child Labour, Global Warming and need to Save Water.
Kumara Rani of Chettinad Dr. MEENA MUTHIAH graced the show and the HEADMISTRESS Mrs. LAKSHMI ASHOK was the guiding light for the show.
“The global work of the UN is not without reason compared to that of a family –striving for a common goal in concert with all its members for a better future.”
Former Secretary General
This experience is precisely what the organizing committee of CVMUN 2011 hoped to offer its delegates and judging from the response, did quite a stellar job!
However, organizing the MUN was no walk in the park. Months spent deliberating on agendas, frantic e-mails containing invites, certificates, handbooks and the like; phone bills seemed unending with frenzied calls to schools, printers, caterers and stationery stores. All said and done, it most certainly paid off.
The event began with the opening ceremony, graced by Mr. B.S. Raghavan I.A.S (retd) who offered the organizers and the delegate’s valuable insights into the functioning of the UN. After which, delegations split up to proceed to their respective councils and committees for commencement of formal session.
After an initial lag, where first timers began grasping their roles as representatives of member nations, sessions were in full swing.
Security Council shot off with delegates being bombarded with queries and comments about their country’s stance on strategies adopted for nullifying global and national unrest and later discussed a plethora of topics during moderated caucus.
Human rights, one of the most responsible and intelligent councils, debated on the reproductive rights of the youth of nations that branched off into countries’ policies on abortion and forced sterilization. This was a widely appreciated council purely because of the calibre of the delegates and their ability to think on their feet.
UNICEF, a new addition this year began with discussing the availability of healthcare amenities for children and came up with some of the best and most viable resolutions of CVMUN 2011. Being a highly efficient lot, they began discussing agenda 2 as well!
Socio, Cultural and Humanitarian was certainly entertaining with delegates’ ideas for discussions leaving everyone including the executive board either totally flummoxed or in splits even while discussing something as crucial as curbing transnational organized crime.
Last, but certainly not least, United Nations’ Environment Programme.
What was a seemingly dull committee at first was livened up with inputs from our special advisers Mr. Harish Ramaswamy and Ms. Aditi Maithreya (Secretary General, 2010-11) and former Secretary General (2009-10) Ms. Manvi Vaidyanath. Once they picked up pace, there was no turning back for the delegates! After the conclusion of speaker’s list, this committee’s moderated caucuses ranged from Human Rights issues to Security Council topics. As Secretary General, I thoroughly enjoyed this house of the UN.
On day two, sessions kicked off where they had stopped and discussed their remaining agendas. The highlight of the day, however, was the emergency situation wherein, our highly creative and efficient World Press managed to rope in Al Qaeda, Somalian pirates, nuclear weaponry and religious motives backing terror attacks. Short of kidnapping Secretary General Mr. Ban Ki Moon, they seemed to have thought of everything possible! (Fuelled by Dominoes pizza perhaps?)
Amidst all the chaos of both days, the delegations of USA (Sishya) and China (PSBB, Nungambakkam) certainly stood out and were awarded Best Delegation and Special Mention for Best Delegation accordingly.
All in all, the delegates had a whale of a time and took back a lot more than just General Knowledge with them. We look forward to making CVMUN 2012 bigger, better and awesome!

WAYANAD- Beauty and Tranquility Galore
A group of more than 400 students, from Class XI and XII, with all vim and verve, boarded the train for a trip to the ever beautiful- Wayanad (Kalpetta) on 24th June. The trip started with lots of hoots and noises and slowly everyone dozed off to wake up at 4, for our station being Calicut. Buses came on time and students boarded the bus to reach the 76 km away destination, Wayanad.
The ride in the bus was flabbergasting. The meandering roads, the greenery, the morning drizzle, every small magic of nature added to the big happiness.
After reaching the hotels, every student and teacher got ready for the breakfast and then everyone pepped up for the Edakkal Caves, famous for the fascinating prehistoric rock etchings found on its walls. We had to climb for 4 hours to reach the caves. The guides were so informative that the torturous climb was worth it.
Next three days the students visited Banasura Dam, Pokkot Lake and the beach in Calicut. Bonfire was cancelled due to heavy rain, but still, enjoyment scored over the cancellation. On the whole, the trip was informative and was also fun. Teachers became the students’ best friends. They also enjoyed to their fullest, which made the trip merrier.
We reached Chennai at 8 on the morning of 29th June. It was sad that the trip ended but then, as CVians “move on and are always ready to go”, everyone was ready to go to school the very next day.
On the 30th of June a drawing competition was organized for children. The children were given 5 topics which they had to depict in their own style.
On the 4th of July the sloka competition was organized in which the children participated with enthusiasm.
On the 11th and 12th of July the school had a dance competition to select the future dancers who would be making the school proud by their performances.
On the 15th of July we had the music competition where children were allowed to exibhit their talents in classical, semi-classical and devotional songs.
An inter house quiz competition was held on 8th of July for classes 4 and 5. The winners were presented with certificates and prizes.
Primary children went for their excursions from13th of July to 19th of July. They went to places like Mayajaal, M.G.M, V.G.P and Queensland. The children had fun and frolic.
The sports heats for primary children were held during the month of July in the school play ground. Apart from regular events like running race and skipping we had some exciting events like potato gathering, arranging the dumbbells, backward walking and sack race. The school had also arranged some games like table tennis, shuttle, throw ball, tug of war etc for enthusiastic teachers, who took active part in it.
The primary teachers were asked to assemble in the A/V room to be updated on various issues. But to our surprise it was a welcome change from our traditional meeting. The movie ‘Stanley ka dabba’ was screened for teachers to visually see the impact they create on children. It is a must watch movie for all the teachers.
With the thought that children should learn at an young age “to treat animals with utmost love and care”, the always encouraging school with story trails organized a visit to Blue Cross on 2nd, 9th and 16th of July for the students of class 2. All the children enjoyed their visit by listening to interesting stories and cuddling the animals at Blue Cross. Story Trails also awarded a Dr. Doolittle award to the little ones.
