As a ritual, every year class XII students enthusiastically make an effigy of Ravana. This year too, present class
XII worked hard and came up with an impressive effigy of Ravana. The students of Arts made ten faces of Ravana that looked rather real and students got thrilled to see it. A brief performance on Ram- Ravana battle, conquest of Lord Ram and his home coming with Ma Sita was shown in the school ground. The atmosphere filled with great fervour and slogans of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ when Lord Ram set the effigy ablaze.
Vidyatree Modern World College celebrated Gandhi Jayanti on 1st October with great fervor. Whereas students of secondary classes talked about early life of Bapu and his revolutionary movements, students of middle school presented a skit encompassing few landmark incidents of Mahatma Gandhi like influence of story of Shravan Kumar on his life, his affinity for truth, his experience on being thrown from first class compartment and his strong will to oppose such discrimination and injustice.
The ambiance filled with slogans like ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’. The school band presented Bapu’s favourite bhajan, ‘Raghupati raghav’ on this occasion.
The Principal of the school, Ms. Meena Kane motivated the students to imbibe the dutiful disposition of Shravan Kumar and to serve their parents with care and love. She also inspired them to take ownership of keeping their surroundings neat and clean to pay tribute to our beloved ‘Father of the Nation’.

Krisnamoorthy , Shree Rakesh Kapoor conducted a meditation session with the students and teachers. He also enlightened the audience with aims and principles of meditation. He emphasised on unanimity of body, mind and soul while practising meditation. It was an illuminating session.
Coming up as one of the house events, a debate competition was also organised on the occasion of
Buddha Poornima. The topic of the debate was ‘Excellence is not possible without stress’. Students were very enthusiastic about the debate as the topic dealt with one of the mission statements of the school. Besides sharing interesting examples and defending their part, the students had a good sense of presentation and attitude. Where the participants understood the gravity of the topic, the students sitting as an audience, also exhibited silence and heard the point of view of each participant. The judge for the event Ms. Meena Kane, principal, VMWC, appreciated everyone and encouraged the students
by giving her valuable suggestions to almost each participant. She even discussed one of the shlokas from the sacred book Gita which was spoken by one of the participant. The competition concluded with a good motive where Socrates and Vivekanand stood first, speaking against the motion and Socrates again bagging the first position, speaking for the motion!
