We are yet again proud to present to you the success of the third Career Guidance Week at VVSHS.
As we have been doing for the past three years, we conducted CGW this year also, in the month of December for the Tenth Standard students of VVSHS.
The idea of the program, i.e. to educate the students about the career options available was again executed well, thanks to the excellent co-ordination between the school & the alumni association.
Here is a brief summary of the program.....
PUC: Mr.Kushal Murthy, a CET topper, presently in RV College of engineering guided the students on how to go about PUC, CET, and other competative exams.
Commerce: Mr.Devendra Nayak, C.A., and his associate Mr. Navneeth Hebbar. They had a very good presentation prepared fo the students, which was educative & interesting. There was a long question answer session which followed.
Armed Forces: Col. Raveendranath, who is a Kargil war veteran, and who has graced our CGW since it's inception with his presence made sure that he again inspired the students with his patriotic talk, and also gave the students an idea of the enormous opportunities Army offers. As usual, he was one of the most inspiring speakers!
3rd day the topics and speakers were:
Engineering: Mr.Shriram, an entrepreneur, spoke about the vast field of engineering and the opportunities. He also spoke about the common mistakes youth tend to do. He touched upon entrepreneurship and related topics too.
Sports: Mr. Jeethendra Shetty, Assoc. Director, Adventure sports division. He spoke about the benefits of being sports-person an terms of career growth and opportunities.
Students really enjoyed and benefitted a lot from the speakers. Again students asked a lot of questions.
4th day the topics and speakers were:
Medicine: Dr. Lakshman & Dr. Munireddy both eminent surgeons, and known for their social service gave an excellent overview of the medical profession. They made their session very interactive & the students were happy to co-operate. Though they made the students aware of the hardships faced by today's medical students, they were able to inspire a lot of young minds to be part of this noble profession.
Vocational Courses: N. Satyaprakash, who needs no introduction to us, a celebrated teacher or VVSHS contributed to our programme with his presentation about the vocatinal courses that can be taken up by some students after tenth standard.
5th day the topics and speakers were:
Law: Mr. Amogh
Journalism: Ms. Shrilakshmi
“Excited, lot of questions, benefiting”, that describes it all.
6th day the topics and speakers were:
Pure Sciences: Dr.Ragavendra, physicist
Biological Sciences & Biotechnology: Dr. Purushottham
Wildlife, Photography & Film Making- Mr. Adarsh & Co.
Last day of the program and yet the excitement in students was same as the 1st day. The speakers were excellent, arguably the best of the program. Students asked a lot of questions.
To gist it all, the program was a great success and we hope that the students will be benefited from all of it.
We would like to thank the school for their extended support. Also for all the teachers who supported us on all the days. Special thanks to Mr.Chikkaiah & Mr.Ramachandra for the support.

Drama Workshop & Stage performance by the students of VVSHS sponsored by the Alumni Association

It used to be a routine in the yester-years to have a drama workshop every year and train the interested children in acting, direction and other theater skills. Over a period of time, it had however stopped, and for the past 10-15 years, there was no such program. however, the Kailasam Drama competition has been happening regularly.
Our present Head Master, Sri H.G.Narayan Rao (HGN) along with the Joint secretary of VVS and the ex-Head master Sri. P.G.Dwarakanth thought to revive the program. This year, as a result, there was a drama workshop and was sponsored entirely by the Alumni Association.
The workshop was conducted by a team from the Karnataka Drama Academy (Karnataka Nataka Academy) under the guidance of Dr.B.V. Rajaram, the chief of the academy. the students were trained for 25 days in acting, direction, and other theater skills.
The final day was the exhibition of a drama "Mallige" at VVSHS. It was a 1 hour long drama well enacted by the students, reflecting the training they had got.
The idea of this exercise was to teach the students the basics of acting and develop in them skills required for Direction, Costumes, Stage settings etc., Also, the students were taught how to make use of the minimal resources and get the best out of them.
We congratulate the team of faculty of VVSHS for putting up this program and wish them all the best for their future endeavors to encourage all round development of the students.

Educational Trip for the students of Saneguruvanahalli Government School
Hi fellow VVans,
We hope to be able to bring into effect many more such events to concentrate on schools who are not privileged enough to have this as a part of their yearly curriculum. It was in fact a very satisfying experience to have given these children an opportunity like this. The gratitude they showed spoke for itself. The feedback that we got from the students as well as the teachers of the school has encouraged us to do many more such events in future, gradually increasing our area and base of inclusion.
Mr.Santosh C.S. was the co-ordinator of the program, and was supported by Dr.Ganesh Ashwath, Mr.Hemanth N., Mr. Govind Ram, Mr.Dheeraj Shyam & Ms. Megha Singh. The programme was solely funded by Dr. Deepak Haldipur. We express our gratitude to Mr.Shankaraiah, Headmaster of the school for his co-operation in organising the event.
