Vidya Vanam has three events through the course of the year to showcase the students’ activities and accomplishments. The three pillars of growth and development encompass the development of the scholastic, the aesthetic and the physical.
Scholastic progress is presented at Project Day usually held in the last week of November or first week of December in the second term. The entire learning in the junior and senior school revolves around a chosen theme. Children display models, charts, present songs, dances and plays based on the chosen theme to the visitors and parents.
The exposition of the aesthetic is through the Annual Day celebration. Music, dance, and drama play a predominant role in showcasing the cultural heritage of the local communities.
Sports Day highlights the physical needs of the children. Apart from regular events like the 200m race and relay, shot putt, javelin throw, the school has evolved games like Collect Your Partner, Kangaroo Race, Scissor Cut, Tying Yourself into Knots that combine athletic ability with loads of fun. The competition is not with others but with bettering oneself.
Every alternate year, Vidya Vanam hosts a National Conference on Education with a specific theme. Teachers, educators and anyone interested in children and education are invited. The conference has had eminent speakers like scholar and former Prime Minister of the Tibetan Government in Exile Samdhong Rinpoche, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India Dr K VijayRaghavan, politician and author Shashi Tharoor, activist Aruna Roy, educationists Rajan Gurukkal, Anil Sadgopal, Santhya Vikram, and Banu Nagesh, academicians AR Venkatachalapathy, Sambaiah Gundimeda, Gita Jayaraj, social workers Chintan Girish Modi and RS Praveen Kumar among others.
All events are on hold due COVID-19.
