Peer education is a term widely used to describe a range of initiatives where young people from a similar age group, background, culture and social status educate and inform each other about a wide variety of issues.

Peer education is an increasingly popular method of providing information and advice to young people in both school and community based settings. Peer education initiatives can offer a wide range of benefits to pupils, peer educators, teachers and the school as a whole.

On 26th December, 2015 the students of class 10th  & 11th  of Indus Valley Public School, Noida participated in a workshop on ‘Peer Education’ held at Delhi Public School Ghaziabad, Vasundhra.

The chief guest Prof. Daya Pant – Head, Department of Education Psychology and Foundation of Education NCERT addressed the students on ‘Stress Management’.

Discussing about the causes and effect of stress, she also suggested the ways to deal with the same.

The workshop was attended by 10 schools of Delhi/NCR where schools shared new ideas and discussed the various steps taken by them regarding ‘Peer Education’





Any kind of activity that holds the interest of the audience by giving them pleasure is entertainment, and to entertain our students, IVPS organized a ‘Film Fest’ in the months of July and August for the classes from III to XII.

The students from classes VIII to XII were taken to DLF School, Ghaziabad and shown the movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ there and the students from classes III to VII were taken to Spice Cinemas, Noida and shown the movie Mary Kom and Jurassic World there.

While the movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ captivated everyone’s hearts, ‘Mary Kom’ (the biopic on boxer Mary Kom) providing wholesome entertainment and ‘Jurassic world’ quenched the adventure streak of the children who were too excited to watch these movies.

“Donation of Woollens to ‘Goonj”


Understanding the needs of underprivileged children and continuing with our charitable acts, our school students collected their woollen clothes to be donated to the NGO, ‘Goonj’.

All the woollens were then taken to Bal Bharti Public School, Rajendra Nagar, which was the collection centre of ‘Goonj’. Very few schools had the privilege to attend this event on 15th December. A small effort on our part can make a huge difference in the lives of these poor children. The representatives of ‘Goonj’ appreciated the efforts made by our children. 


Hands on Learning Workshop

Now a days teaching is no longer limited to classroom lectures. We are well aware of the limitations of the class lecture, and to overcome the same, incorporation of hands-on-experiences is highly recommended. The workshop was organized by teachnext on “Hands on Learning Activities” in Hotel Hypen, Noida on 26th Sept., 2015 with the aim to adopt effective teaching and learning process. Various PPTs, activities and kits have been given to the teachers to emphasis on the importance of Hands-on-learning experience. The idea was to include and involve learners in experiences that will help them to learn the content and skill being taught. Discussion was made on the different learning view with the help of PPT, one of them was “Edger Dale’s cone of learning experience”.

Emphasis was also given on the introduction of “Flipped Class Room Approach”, teachers can use as an effective tool in teaching learning process that makes it more effective.

The Workshop was concluded by a small video. “Do flowers fly” which provided equal opportunity for students to open up and reveal their talents.



Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. Sisters tie rakhi on the wrists of their brothers and pray for their long life.

Students of Classes IV and V were very excited to make their own rakhis for their brothers. Their zeal and enthusiasm made the workshop a huge success.
