KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7-B, Chandigarh in collaboration with Municipal Corporation Chandigarh organised a Comprehensive Awareness Session on the theme "SWACHHTA KI PAATHSHALA- an Educational Programme on Solid Waste Management" today with a special guest from Municipal Corporation, Mrs. Anindita Mitra, IAS, Municipal Commissioner, with her team, visiting the School Campus. A warm welcome was accorded to the team from MC Chandigarh in a traditional style with students dressed up as Radha and Krishna. This was followed by felicitation of the Chief Guest, Mrs. Anindita Mitra, IAS, Commissioner, Municipal Coporation, Chandigarh  and, Ms. Isha Kamboj, Joint Commissioner, MC, Chandigarh. The session then began with the learners from Class VI to Class XII in large numbers being in attendance to listen to the special team from MC, Chandigarh, headed by Mrs. Anindita Mitra, IAS, Commissioner, Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh. 

"Things of concern, but often overlooked by all and sundry, affect the cleanliness of our surroundings and ultimately our health", said Mrs. Anindita Mitra when she took over and addressed the congregation there. She alluded to the fact that the Municipal Corporation works silently to resolve many issues – the M.C ensures cleanliness in the City. She declared that plastic and its use is a life-style disease. Her lecture-cum-talk was so captivating that applause echoed time and again when she uttered words of wisdom to the learners. While the use of motorised vehicles has improved garbage collection in the city by and large, its disposal remains a major challenge, she said. As much as 75% of the garbage collected is going to the dumping ground without being processed for which Mrs. Anindita Mitra said, all the residents of the city need to take ownership. She said it's high time the learners were involved in the collection of household garbage, in a proper segregated manner. In the recent Swachhta rankings, Chandigarh has slipped from 16 rank to 66 rank, she revealed. The Corporation is according Top Priority to the maintenance of Dumping Ground, she said. She encouraged the learners to be the 'monitor' of their house, and segregate the garbage at the household level, before giving it out to the garbage collector. The garbage thus collected is then converted into compost and vermi-compost, thereby ensuring recycling, and reducing the garbage going down to the dumping ground unprocessed. She further said that the learners can themselves create compost at their homes, by following simple steps. She assigned this task to the learners to which the learners spoke in unison that they would make it a routine at their houses to segregate garbage every day before sending it for disposal. A pledge to keep the City clean, and bring it to the Top in Cleanliness was taken by all the attendees.

One of the team members, Mr. Shankey Jain, who had first addressed the gathering asked the learners certain witty questions relating to garbage disposal at the learners' places. This was done to invoke the interest of the learners towards a very important issue that the city faces today- the safe and proper disposal of tonnes of everyday garbage. He then showed three videos from the screen specially installed in the rink, that motivated the learners to understand that it was very important to separate different types of garbage into four different coloured bins. One video also showed why single-use plastic has been banned and how it is harming our ecology. 

The Principal of the School, Mrs. Pooja Prakash lauded Mrs. Anindita Mitra, Commissioner, Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh as a leader, who professes to do things the right way, but also shows the way to do it. Her involvement at the grass root level and partnership with the School on an important aspect like solid waste management, sanitation and hygiene shows the strides the City is taking to reduce its environmental footprints.

To instill the spirit of patriotism, Poster making competition for class VIII was organized on the theme “Life and contribution of Dr. B R Ambedkar” and “Fundamental Duties as Enshrined in the Constitution of India”.

Wherein students of class VIII showcased their creative skills, students of Class IX were involved in-class discussion on the topic, “Fundamental rights and duties”. Students spoke on the framework of the Constitution and focused on its role to bring the citizens of India together. To create social awareness regarding the importance of protecting the Constitution, a mass reading of the Preamble was organized, where everybody including the Principal, staff and students read out the Preamble. The motive behind this was to promote a clear understanding and awareness about the Constitution and to make the younger generation know the salient features and the importance of the Constitution of India.

The learners of classes’ 5th to 7th students were equally enthusiastic about the Constitution Day Celebration. To spread awareness of Fundamental Rights and Fundamental Duties enshrined in the Constitution of India and to spread awareness about its architect. The little enthusiasts celebrated the Indian Constitution Day in virtual classes with full enthusiasm with teachers.

All these activities gave a chance to our learners to be imbued with the Constitution of our country. There was great enthusiasm visible among the students. The learners vowed to become better citizens of India and this World.

Learning is Fun at KBDAV 7


Experiments are a great way of analyzing how well one understands a subject and correlate the theoretical knowledge with its practical application in real life. It encourages students to stretch their knowledge horizons and look beyond what they are taught in class.

To instill experiential learning and encourage a fun way of learning mathematics among students, Maths Department of  KB DAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector 7-B, Chandigarh took an initiative and organized the event “EXPERIENTIAL AND JOYFUL LEARNING THROUGH MATHEMATICS IN THE WORLD OF MENSURATION” from September 7, 2020 to September 11, 2020, for class VIII learners.

Every major decision taken at the Centre directly affects the youth of a Nation. And when the decision is as strong, challenging and vibrant, as the need for making India a Self-Reliant Nation, the youth of the Country cannot afford to sit back silent and merely observe. So, when the Prime Minister of the Country, Mr. Narendra Modi announced in May 2020 that the time to make the Country Self-Reliant has come, the young brains of KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B, Chandigarh from Classes IX and X pulled up their socks and got together in a webinar on 13 August 2020 to discuss the feasibility of the proposal.

The discussion on the issue was organised in the form of a debate on the motion: SELF-RELIANT INDIA- a DISTANT DREAM, with 32 teams presenting their arguments in favour of and against the motion, and around 95 participants attending the meet.  The Principal of the school, Mrs.Pooja Prakash was herself one of the judges of the debate, with Ms. Beenu Malhotra, teacher of English for Secondary and Senior Secondary classes, being the second judge.

The views from both the sides were so strong and convincing that it was hard to be on one side completely. Whereas the debaters supporting the motion argued that the impediments on the path to self-reliance were many, and quite tough; the speakers criticising them quoted examples of the sectors in which India has already shown its independence, and is on the way to make 12 more sectors self-reliant soon.

When one debater argued that India faces challenges of transportation cost, expensive power and property, and complicated labour laws, her opponent lost no time in shooting back that the new policies being framed at the Centre were going to find a solution to each hurdle that India has faced hitherto. One speaker pointed out the resolve of India to invite as many countries as possible in the near future to come and invest here, and set up their companies in India, offering employment, training and research opportunities to millions of Indians in whom lies a humongous potential, waiting to be tapped.

By the end of the debate, the motion seemed to be tilted in favour of A SELF-RELIANT INDIA, A new INDIA with lots of positive things happening soon. Both the judges congratulated the speakers for coming forward and expressing their robust views, and encouraged them to continue working to give shape to the SELF-RELIANT INDIA of tomorrow.



With Experiential Learning being the new norm, and precedence given to interactive over instructional mode of teaching, KB DAV-7, Chandigarh organized a 4-day ‘Explore’ – Science Experiential Online Workshop for Class VIII from 4th August to 7th August 2020.

KBDAV 7 Celebrates Water Week : "Volturnalia" : An Odyssey To Save Water

Among the top most priorities with KBDAV-7, water conservation has always taken the lead, owing to the water crisis that we witness around the World these days. KBDAV-7 has never lagged behind in creating awareness among its students to preserve water for future use, and to spread the message far and wide the week from 20 July 2020- 25 July 2020 was dedicated to celebrating Water Week at the School for class VIII learners. A series of Competitions took place from Monday to Saturday to bring home the fact that survival on this planet is impossible without water.

Cadence competition- A competition to test the Musical Skills of the Learners and create the best Jingle, for the enthusiastic performance from the young minds.

The evil of wastage of water masquerades itself behind the faces of those careless people who allow water to run freely and uselessly. Keeping this in view a mask making competition was organised on the second day and this also received an overwhelming response from the learners who created myriad kinds of masks and impressed everyone with their creativity.

Event 3 of Water Week tested the Innovative Skills along with the skills of Oration and Expression among the Learners. "Walk the Talk" was the name of the competition that brought out the Tech Savvy selves of the students who created videos to spread the ever important message of conserving water.

E–savvy students designed some very beautiful E-logos on 23 July which further strengthened their resolve not to let go the issue of water conservation down the drain. Their imaginative and aesthetic processes won appreciation from everyone.

If one has to explore the dormant journalistic qualities in someone, then age stands no bar to this quality. The creation of stories, poems, articles, puzzles, comic strips and much more by the class VIII learners on July 25, 2020 for the E Journal competition proved this fact right. Some of the creations on this day were actually nail biting and awe inspiring.

What better way to conclude the Water Week than to hold a Brain Testing and Mind Blowing Quiz asking Learners to rub their quizzical senses and answer some of the burning questions on the issue of water shortage and its prevention. The class VIII learners did not fight shy in surprising even in this concluding Competition of the week. We have the Artists, the Quizzers, the Journalists and the Speakers among these budding students. In nutshell, KBDAV-7 was successful in preparing an Army of Water Saviours with this week long practice of instilling the best water habits among its students and of speaking loud the message to the society around.

When faced with the toughest of the times in life, ‘never giving up’ is the only thing that can help sail us through and reach the other side of the tunnel. With this message as the reverberating voice throughout the webinar organised for the students of classes IX to XII, and their parents by KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B on July 18, 2020, it was once again proved that it is only positive thoughts and actions that help one cut through the testing times. The guest speakers Dr. Arpita Kapur, and anaesthesiologist from ASMO, Civil Hospital, Panchkula, Ms. Anchal Sharma, the counselling psychologist from Fortis, Mohali and Sister B. K. Neha, Rajyoga Teacher, participated in the LIVE WEBINAR ‘ The Art of being Happy’. Whereas Dr. Arpita Kapur spoke at length on the spread of coronavirus and the necessary precautions one must take to avoid contracting it, Ms. Anchal Sharma touched on the psychological aspects of the present situation, and its impact on the students, their parents and teachers alike. Sister B. K. Neha soothed the nerves of the tense students and their parents through her serene discourse and meditation session.

 Dr. Kapur, through her equally impressive PPT presentation, brought awareness regarding the present condition, symptoms and prevention of Coronavirus spread. She also appreciated the process of online teaching that is the ‘in-thing’ now, but warned against its negative impacts if overdone. She told the learners and their parents to take care of ‘A to F’ strategy, which will surely help them to ease out. It is taking care of: Awareness, Break, Cutting down the total gadget time, Diet, Exercise and Family time.

If Dr. Kapur was successful in creating awareness without triggering the panic button, Ms. Anchal Sharma, the counselling psychologist applied the soothing balm on the stressed minds of the students and their parents by dealing with the psychological side. With an interesting PPT presentation, she took the students, parents and teachers for a ride through their levels of mental stress, and the ways of controlling the personal alarming situations. She spoke of three phases that every change brings in: i) the Initial Reaction (Emotional), ii) the Intermediate Reaction (Intellectual), and, iii) the Final Healthy Reaction (Acceptance). She quoted Hellen Keller and Viktor E. Franki to suggest that there is always a space between a stimulus and response to it. We have got to react with patience in that space to finally control our response.

The final sublimation came from the discourse by Sister Neha who patiently answered each question posed to her with an example quoted every time. She alluded the functioning of our brain for example to the working of an Air Conditioner. To use AC to cool or to heat is in our control. So should be the control on our brains. By finding good behind every negativity, by not discussing our insecurities with our loved ones, by welcoming our critics with open arms we can search for the golden rays behind our worries and tensions, she exclaimed. A live session of meditation by her in the webinar brought the students and parents to their better and relaxed selves.

The success of a session is determined by the interest that the attendees take in it. The presence of a mammoth 200 participants, an unending series of queries in the chat box, and an overwhelming applause and thanks by the parents and students alike for the school for organising such an informative webinar took it to its successful culmination.



“It is not the size of a girl in the fight, but the size of the fight in a girl”, and “there is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise”, were two of the many quotes that defined woman power, today in a G-meet where the Principal of KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B, Chandigarh Mrs. Pooja Prakash, the teachers of the Senior Secondary Wing and the learners of XI had gathered to observe Malala Day and to celebrate the power of womanhood.

As many as seven learners spoke their minds on the heights that a woman has achieved with leaders like Malala Yousafzai at the helm. Malala who rose from ashes like a phoenix is a known name across the world, advocating the right to education of the girl child. “Sometimes you just have to die a little inside in order to be reborn, and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.”

Ananaya Thakur, Manya Bansal and Rishi Nayyar praised Malala for setting a benchmark for the girls of the world to follow. Age does not matter if you want the world to sit up and notice you, said these speakers, quoting Malala’s great achievements. Whereas speakers like Arpita Nara, Palak, Nishtha Kalia and Anushka Mehal recited poems and celebrated women empowerment in their own unique styles. Finally, Principal Mrs. Pooja Prakash appreciated the efforts of the learners for recognising Malala Yousafzai and knowing more about her life, replete with struggles. She encouraged the children to never lose sight of their goals, and create a dent with their arduous efforts.

In his enriching session, he emphasized on the fact that students are future leaders and need to be dutiful and committed to the society. The key-note speaker talked on the topics ranging from Constitution of India, Duties towards the environment, Bio-diversity to the current threat of COVID-19. Expressing his concerns, he said that there is no doubt that COVID-19 has given a big challenge to Medical Sciences but at the same time it has proven to be a ‘Blessing in Disguise’ as the real beauty of the nature could be seen during this period.

He specially asked the members of Legal Literacy Club to spread information about Legal Aid Programs and to make Justice accessible to all. He also shared Helpline numbers in case any legal aid is required and made the audience aware about the working of State Legal Services Authority.

Information was shared about the Legal Assistance provided to Female, Disabled, Jail inmates, Disaster Victims, the Public Utility Services and how to get benefit of these services.

The School feels that these initiatives create consciousness in Community and empower learners to become active agents in promoting the cause of the environment.

Proud parents of Vaishanvi, said, “She made the most of the lockdown and didn’t give up once she set the target. We believe in what former President Dr A P J Abdul Kalam said, “Great dreams of great dreamers always transcend.”



A hundred times every day, I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give, in the same measure, as I have received and am still receiving”.

If we are receiving our essentials in our area today, it’s because of someone who toils day and night to bring them to our doorsteps.

If we find cleanliness and hygiene maintained around our houses, it is they who remove the last speck of dust from our streets.

If we find the garbage lifted from our houses, it’s they, who move from house to house, carrying their lives on their sleeves in these turbulent times, leaving behind a satisfaction of their arrival each day.

If we find the premises of our buildings/offices safeguarded, it is due to the presence of these silent workers.

KBDAV-7, Chandigarh encourages its learners to express their gratitude to all the COVID warriors and its Family of Class IV employees, without whose support things are bound to collapse.  Students of Class XI and Class II shared posters and cards online to express their heart-felt gratitude to these warriors on the occasion of Labour Day .
