Shalom Hills International School joins the Swachh School; Swachh Bharat Abhiyan on 1st October’15

  • SHIS Activity

Cleanliness is next to Godliness. But it is commonly observed that we do not always practise what these eternal proverbs or values preach; things are often different when it comes to converting them into a ground reality. A progressive step has been undertaken by the government through a Swachh Bharat Mission, a massive mass movement that seeks to create a Clean India. Cleanliness was very close to Mahatma Gandhi’s heart and a clean India is the best tribute that we as a nation can pay to Bapuji. Mahatma Gandhi devoted his life so that India attains ‘Swarajya’. Now the time has come to devote ourselves towards ‘Swachchhata’ (cleanliness) of our motherland.

Clean surroundings and Green Earth are causes that are extremely dear to the heart of the Founder-Managing Director of our school, Dr Lilly George. Under the management’s guidance, many pioneering initiatives towards a Green and Clean school have been initialized and implemented. The awareness and commitment in the school to Green cause is of transcending genre – it involves the management to faculty to students. On 1st October’15, the Senior members of the Student Council, namely the Head-Boy, Head-Girl, Vice Head-Boy, Vice Head Girl, Discipline Secretary and Sentinels of Environment briefed the lady guards of the school about the importance and intent of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. They interacted freely with the guards and told them how they can contribute to the cause and keep the school premises and surroundings clean, green and beautiful.

Similarly the Student Council office-bearers went up to the bus drivers and conductors and similarly informed them about the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. The young school leaders impressed upon them that with their contribution, Shalom Hills International School will emerge as the best example of a Swachh Shalom School and surroundings.

Whenever a worthy cause has to be taken up or lent support to – Shalom Hills International School is a sure forerunner!

  • SHIS Activity

There was a tangible crackle of excitement in the air and a certain amount of suspense writ large on the faces of the senior graders as they entered the school on 17th July’15. During the first half of the day, a meeting was chaired by the school principal, Mr Atul Bhatt and attended by the Head-Mistress of the Senior Wing, Sr. Coordinator, Dynasty Incharges and Dynasty wardens to announce the new members of Shalom Student Council for the current session.

In a departure from the previous years, this year the Student Council will be headed by two head-boys, Karan Rakesh Nigam and Adit Arora, with each leading the Student Council for one term.

Fond adieu bid to the outgoing Student Council’s members on 17th July’15

  • SHIS Activity

Shalom Hills International School has a rich tradition of empowering its students and using its hallowed precincts as the “natural breeding ground” of future leaders. Under the sagacious leadership of its management, the school provides a wide ambit of leadership opportunities to the students through well-defined roles and responsibilities vested in the Student Council. In the beginning of every academic session, a transparent system of electing students to the Student Council takes place and then office-bearers play an active role in school functioning.This year, adding a fortuitous feature to this rich tradition of Student Empowerment, a felicitation ceremony took place to acknowledge the role played by last year’s Student Council. It was chaired by Mr Atul Bhatt, the principal in the presence of Ms. Priya Chauhan, Head-Mistress of the Senior Wing, Sr. Coordinator, Dynasty Incharges and wardens and attended by the members of Student Council 2014-15. Mr. Atul Bhatt, the school principal praised the outgoing Student Council members for their positive contribution to the school functioning in the previous session. He admired the students for their able leadership as active members of the Student Council of session 2014-15. The principal shared his own diverse and enriching experiences as a teacher and stressed specially on the importance of good character. He emphasized that “Integrity of character and strength of convictions are the hall marks of a true leader.”

The students then recounted their experiences as members of last session’s Student Council. All were very proud to have been granted the opportunity to serve their school loyally and ably in different capacities. The students thanked the principal for his encouraging words and appreciated how their work as student leaders had been noticed and appreciated by all. Mr. Atul Bhatt also urged them that their positive contribution and good work should continue in the current session as well.

The oath of office was administered by the Vice Chairman, who congratulated the office bearers and the parents.

After the oath taking ceremony, a soul stirring presentation was shown to the parents. The presentation showed the vision, prayer and loving assurance that M.D Ma'am had for each and every Shalomite. The faculty, students and parents were immeasurably moved by M.D Ma'am's beautiful and emotional message for the school children urging them to “move ahead like the river, soar like the birds, to be healthy and beautiful like the fruits, rooted to the soil like the fragrant flowers and rise and shine early like the sun”. Loud cheering greeted the inspiring words of M.D Ma'am when she urged all the students sitting in the auditorium that they should keep striving and be sure that next time they too would become school representatives. M.D Ma'am congratulated the parents and acknowledged the sterling role that they have played in shaping the destinies of their children. Congratulating the office-bearers of the Student Council, Ma'am reiterated her firm belief that they would prove worthy of the great trust reposed in them by the school management and faculty.

In her address to the audience, the school Principal Ms. Ritu Mehta made a special mention of how the school management had empowered the Student Council with well-defined roles, great authority and responsibilities. In her speech, the Principal disclosed the transparent yet elaborate selection procedure that had been followed to elect the office-bearers and dynasty councillors.

Mrs. Bhawna Gupta addressed the audience on the behalf of the other parents. She praised the school for providing not only regular but plentiful opportunities for her son and other students to realize their talent and develop into confident youngsters. She made a special mention of how Shalom Hills took extra pains to cater to the needs of the intelligent students as well as take care of those with average learning specifications.

Students vote for the school's prefectorial board on 11th and 12th July'13



Students of Grades III-XII had their first and real taste of the "power of voting" as they voted for their dynasty captains, vice-captains and prefects. The nominated candidates had spent the previous week in campaigning and canvassing for votes. They had approached all the senior graders and revealed their plans to make their dynasty to topnotch level, if voted for.

Through secret ballot, the students of III-V voted for their dynasty prefects from Grade V during the dynasty meeting held on 11th July‟13. Likewise, in the senior grades, the nominated candidates for captaincy, vice-captaincy and prefects of Cedar, Ebony, Maple and Oak stood aside while the other students were handed over chits by their Dynasty Wardens and tutors. The members of each dynasty secretly wrote the name of their chosen candidate and folded the chit before dropping it in the ballet box. There was great excitement visible on their faces as they voted and gained hands on experience of the democratic process of secret ballot which earlier they had only read about in their Civics books.

The suspense mounted to fever-pitch as the teachers collected the ballot and took them for counting. The juniors and seniors could be heard loudly speculating the results which will be announced shortly by the Dynasty Head, Ms. Rashpal Kaur.

The four school dynasties - Cedar, Ebony, Maple and Oak led by their captains, vice-captains and prefects (senior and juniors) were conferred badges of office by Principal ma‟am. In an atmosphere of stillness and solemnity, the office-bearers took the oath of office from the Vice-Principal of the school. The outgoing head boy, Abhishek Dey, in his speech, shared some eventful moments of his tenure and congratulated the new head boy and girl

The prize distribution ceremony started on a high note as the Director of Compudon gave a special medal to Abdus Samad Hashmy of Grade X for standing 2 nd in the Compudon‟13 Competition. Pride glinting on the faces of the students and teachers outshone the glitter of the medals given to Principal ma‟am for School Participation and to Ms. Deepika Dalal for Faculty Appreciation by the Director of Compudon who was all praise for the school and the students. The Overall Achievement Awards were given by the school‟s principal to the toppers and thereafter the topnotch achievers in Grades VI-XI in English, Hindi, Maths, Science and Social Science were felicitated.

Independence Day Celebrations

  • SHIS Activity

As part of the Founder’s day Week festivities, on 11th August, 2017, the students of Grade V celebrated Independence Day with utmost enthusiasm and a sense of patriotism in their hearts. The students were divided into their respective dynasties and two topics were given to them to put forward their thoughts and views either through a short skit, role play, creative writing or even a debate. The topics were, ‘India- Before and After Independence’ and ‘My Pride- Shalom in the Future’.
Our young patriots were well versed with the scenario of India before independence since it was a topic covered in their syllabus and hence it did not take long for them to put on their acting robes and enact the leaders/reformers/martyrs or various battles that led to Independent India. Some students opted to debate with their fellow classmates whether India was better before Independence or after.
Soon the students moved to the next topic of discussion where they came forward and spoke about the pride that they take in their school and how they would like to see Shalom in the future. They said that they dream of seeing the campus greener than present and that in their view the paper books will be replaced by e-books and each student would carry a tab or an I-pad pre-installed with all the applications and study materials instead of bags. Certain students had an interesting thought where they visualised human teachers being replaced by robots in the future. The students certainly dived way ahead into the future! The celebration would not have been complete without the flag hoisting ceremony and so the students sang the National Anthem with great fervor, after which the flag was hoisted in the school ground and left to wave freely symbolizing the spirit of free India.

With the multiple objectives of bringing the young students closer to nature, letting them interact with various bio-diversity elements and helping them to understand the importance of bio-diversity for human life, Grade VII students went on a Field Trip to Gurgaon Bio-Diversity Park accompanied by their class teachers and Ms. Anjali Drolia. All students were divided into different groups and given an introduction about the location and instructions to follow while at the park. Then all the groups were given the task of observing the flora and fauna in the park and recording their observation in the form of

  1. Different types of colours that are visible in nature and in the park
  2. Different types of plant and tree species
  3. Different types of animal/bird species
  4. Later on, the students were taken on a walk through the park. In mid-way, the students were stopped and engaged in an activity in which all students were first asked to stand in a circle. Then 10 students were selected from the group and made to stand in a random order. These students were designated as different sources of oxygen. All the other students were asked to hold their breath and start moving when they heard the word START and were bidden to assemble near the sources of oxygen in exactly the same way as they take in and then release their breath. Also when the trainer shouted out a number (either 5 or 4 or 3), the other students had to create a group of the number called out and assemble near their closest source of oxygen. Those who failed to form a group were declared to be out of the game

In the subsequent rounds, the sources of oxygen were gradually reduced thereby leading to more students getting out from the game. In the end, only one source of oxygen and two students remained in the game. Once the game was over, the trainer explained to the students how this situation represented the actual plight of the earth in today’s scenario of fast depleting sources. This inventive game helped them to understand how cutting of trees impacts out lives and the lives of various other bio-diversity elements that exist in our nature Upon completion of the round of the park, a few students were selected who recorded their feedback and an environmental message for their school mates which could help in sensitizing the others also about the environmental issues.

Furthermore, Ms. Jalpa explained M.D Ma’am’s vision of sustainability and how she wants each and every child to be sensitized and equipped to ensure that development should not be at the cost of environment and also it has to ensure that needs of future generations are also taken in to account.

No goodbyes, no conventional farewells, but only ‘Fare Ye Well’ - sums up the valedictory party hosted by the Grade XI students for the outgoing batch of Grade XII. Emotive moments, lingering memories and million-dollar looks were the hallmarks of the adieu party organized for the outgoing batch on 30th Jan’15.

The emotionally surcharged occasion was compounded half of sadness that the senior graders are on the verge of exiting from the school precincts and half of joyous anticipation that they were poised to embark on a fresh episode of their life. The students of Grade XII were overwhelmed with nostalgia as they recalled the cherished moments spent in the loving atmosphere of the school, milestones and ‘growing up together’ that have marked every step of their fourteen years sojourn in their alma mater.

The incumbent Grade XI put up a delightful cultural programme spiced with lively songs and dances and even livelier compering by the young anchors Surya Iyer and Karan Rakesh Nigam and laced with emotional moments. The occasion was graced by Ms. Ritu Mehta, the school Principal, Ms. Meenu Chopra, the Head-Mistress of Grades VI-XII, Ms. Rima Gaekwad – Head Mistress of Primary Wing, Ms. Rohini Mohan, Pre-Primary Head Mistress and faculty members of the Senior Wing. More fun rolled out as the host batch invited their senior grades teachers to give delightful titles which were most thoughtfully and wittily penned down for each student of the outgoing batch. Grade XI A and XIC girls showed their twinkle-toes and some amazingly lithe movements as they danced to the tune of the current chartbusters. The students of Grade XII scorched the ramp with their diva looks and cool attitude as they walked down the aisle. Karan and Sameer did a delightful spoof of Koffee with Karan and Sameer as they asked snappy questions to the final contestants of ‘Mr and Ms Shalom’. Amidst loud cheering, title of Mr Shalom was conferred on Pranay and Ms. Binwant Kaur was adjudged ‘Ms Shalom’. They were given sashays by the Principal and Head-Mistresses.

Nostalgia and emotions overcame the Grade XII students when Ms. Ritu Mehta, the principal conveyed M.D Ma’am special blessings for each one of them. The principal shared how she already knew most students from the moment she joined the school simply because M.D Ma’am had described them in great detail and shared fond memories of their early years in school. Blessing and bidding them well for their future lives, Ms. Mehta exhorted them to live up to the school expectations, chase their dreams but at the same time, be dutiful children to their loving parents.

A sumptuous lunch and foot-tapping numbers were awaiting all once the cultural programme was over.

“When you celebrate with your heart and mind both, every occasion becomes a celebration of life.”



Celebrations and functions held in Shalom Hills International School bear the hallmark of being laced with emotions, sensitivity, social meaning and sheer bounty of boundless creativity. The 11th Founder’s Day Celebrations held in the school on 14TH August’14 were no different.

The school had engaged its junior and senior students in a week-long ‘Independence Week Celebrations’ which too culminated in a lavishly yet feelingly mounted programme on 14th August’14.

The occasion was graced by the Managing Director, Vice Chairman and Director of the school. Other than the teams from Nirvana branch and Shalom Presidency, young children from a welfare centre for speech and hearing impairment children were also present. After the auspicious lighting of the lamp by Ma’am, the school choir and band paid a musical salute to their Founder-Managing Director. Young speakers recited emotionally drenched poems followed by foot-tapping numbers, enthralling dance-sequels and a riveting biopic which traced the life odyssey of the Managing Director from her childhood days. The tautly and poignantly scripted biography depicted scenes which showed M.D Ma’am’s passion for imparting education from her tender years. Yet another moving depiction showcased the trials and tribulations faced by the Managing Director in transforming a barren land into hallowed land of learning where excellence in education is the founding stone.

Dev Dutt and Binwant Kaur, the Head Boy and Head Girl also delivered speeches on the occasion. Dev Dutt Menon, in his speech catalogued all the essential attributes of a great leader. After citing strength of character, firmness of purpose, self-belief, a sense of humour and the ability to lead rather than dictate as the pre-requisites of a real leader, he echoed the sentiments of the entire faculty and students when he called M.D Ma’am as an epitome of finest virtues and ‘the only one I know who possesses all these leadership characteristics and more.”

The Principal, Ms. Ritu Mehta saluted the mission and ethos of M.D Ma’am and hailed Ma’am for her transformative, spiritual and inspirational guidance and mentoring of each and every Shalomite. Ms. Ritu Mehta reiterated the 4 E’s that are the cornerstone of our school functioning as envisioned by M.D Ma’am – Ethics, Ethos, Education and Environmental Awareness. Ms. Mehta shared with the audience how the decade long journey of Shalom Hills International School has culminated in the epoch institution of 4 milestones (SHS, Sushant Lok, SHS Nirvana, SHIS and Shalom Presidency), on account of M.D Ma’am exemplary vision and sagacious headship.

A veritable thrall and silence descended upon the hall and the gathering when the personal vision and mission of M.D Ma’am stemming from ‘I Believe’ played in the darkened hall and all the teachers joined hands to pledge to serve the school and uphold Ma’am values and ethos always.

The felicitation ceremony was a watermark of the day’s programme. After a floral welcome of M.D ma’am by the Shalom and Nirvana teams, beautiful etchings, sculpture piece and Special Edition of August Newsletter were presented to ma’am by different heads and the students, by way of creative outpourings of the high regard and reverence they have for ma’am.

Overwhelmed by the love showered on her, M.D Ma’am spoke loving words to the students and faculty. Tumultuous cheering rent the air when Ma’am described the programme as so captivating as to have left her speechless. Many eyes were moist when Ma’am revealed how every day is dedicated by her to her school and students; how the entire staff and students are remembered daily in her prayers. Ma’am’s inspiring words that ‘character is the most requisite and attribute of a leader, how in her opinion it is her greatest strength and weakness as well and likening a characterless person to a rotten egg’ left a deep imprint on the hearts of all present there. Ma’am blessed the students and staff and thanked them for a cherished day that would live in her memory forever.

Inter Dynasty Poster Making Competition on the topic “Save the Earth, Go Green”

  • SHIS Activity

Our Earth is the most beautiful planet in our solar system. As far as we know, Earth is the only planet that has life.
Man had a good relationship with Mother Earth, but since humans developed cities and industries, the modern lifestyle has changed. Man has been using and misusing natural resources beyond the limit.
Our Earth is in great danger now. If we are thinking beings, we must save plants and forests, because they save us. Thus, to inculcate a conscious and responsible attitude towards nature, a poster making competition was held in Grade III-V on July 28, 2017, on the topic ‘Save the Earth, Go Green’ to celebrate Van Mahotsav week. The students were very enthusiastic about finding new ways to save the environment-the plants, animals and other good things for the future generations.
While making posters, they reflected their imagination, views, and new approach to save all non renewable sources of energy. All the posters were informative and colourful. The students enjoyed the activity and came up with creative and innovative ideas to save mother planet- “The Earth”

Inter-Dynasty Declamation on “Pollution” by Grade II 3rd August 2017

  • SHIS Activity

Pollution is the addition of hazardous contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either chemical or foreign substances/energies- such as noise, heat or light, or naturally occurring contaminants. The major types of environmental pollution are air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, thermal pollution, soil pollution and light pollution.
To sensitize the students of Grade II towards the need to reduce environmental pollution, an Inter-Dynasty declamation competition on the topic-“Pollution”, was organized. The students described the various types of pollution, their causes, adverse effects and reasons very well. The students also stated deforestation and hazardous gaseous emissions as major cause of environmental pollution. During the last 10 years, the world has witnessed severe rise in environmental pollution.
Through this activity the students realized the value of our Earth and its environment. They also understood the importance of keeping the environment clean and pollution free for our safe future.

Inter-Dynasty Declamation Competition

  • SHIS Activity


The tiger is a unique animal which plays a pivotal role in the health and diversity of our ecosystem. It is a top predator which is at the apex of the food chain and keeps the population of wild ungulates in check, thereby maintaining the balance between prey herbivores and the vegetation upon which they feed.
Thus, the topic ‘How to Save the Tiger’ was chosen for Inter-Dynasty English Declamation competition. The students of Grades III- V stood confidently to spread awareness on the importance of saving this magnificent creation of the cat family, through their well-prepared speeches.
They encouraged us to ban products made of animal skin, report poaching and poachers to nearby law officials and spread awareness about importance of every organism in the ecosystem. A wonderful thought was accentuated in the end, ‘If Nature is responsible for our existence then we must also take the responsibility for its Existence!’
The occasion was graced by the presence of our Dean, Mr. Carlton Wilson, the Senior Coordinator, Mrs. Swastika Acharya and Mrs. Suniti Bhai. The audience was wonderful and remained patient throughout the declamation. The English teachers of the senior wing, Mrs. Kavita Bharadwaj and Mrs. Meenakshi Madan were invited to judge the competition of Grade V. The Inter-dynasty meet concluded with a round of applause for all the participants and a message to all the students to actively participate in Saving the Tiger and to bring about the desired change in thinking and preservation of the same.
