For our kids today are receiving polluted air only. Scientists, doctors, environmentalists have all warned us of the catastrophic effects of air pollution. As a student rightly remarked...." If not now, then when? #shilpites #worldenviormentday  #agentsofchange
Welcome back Shilpites! Come energise the emptiness of your classrooms with your vibrancy.
Vidyashilp Community Trust in association with Vidyashilp Academy has adopted 21 Government Schools in the N4 region of Bangalore. The Trust will work to provide government school children with a comprehensive holistic, quality education which allows each child to reach their potential. The primary objective of the School Adoption Programme is to transform the rural, semi-urban and urban Government schools into model schools so that they are at the same level, as the best schools in the city in terms of quality, facilities, infrastructure and performance.
We are happy to announce the ICSE & ISC results. Congratulations to all the Students, Educators, Staff and Parents.  #Shilpites #Graduates #ICSEResults#ResultsAreOut #Congratulations #BestWishes#VSACampus #VSA

The Department of English - Phase I presented a play recently – DANNY, the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl, which won the American Alliance for Theatre and Education Best Play Award, 2007.

The students of Grade IV and V were inspired to inculcate the love for reading through this book which was followed by a series of activities in the class. 
Our initiative to help them understand the author’s life and achievements, the plot and summary of the book, culminated in bringing the characters alive on stage through the enactment of the nine chapters, where, every student was an active participant. Groups of students also performed songs valuing life and relationships.

Through this event, we convey the message from Roald Dahl to our parents that- “A stodgy parent is no fun at all. What a child wants and deserves is a parent who is sparky.”
Vidyashilp Academy, Hindi Department organised ‘Kalakaaron Ki Duniya’ an initiative to exhibit rich Indian culture through performing arts. 
The theme of the event was “humor” and this was portrayed in a unique way by the 6th graders. Humor is an elixir of life and considered as one of the Nav Rasas in literature.
