MET Rishikul Vidyalaya takes pride in its 'eco-friendly' status and has been actively involved in creating
awareness among children about existing environmental issues.
Young energetic green beginners contribute in their own way to safeguard planet earth by collecting tetra
pak cartons which are further recycled. We also compost wet waste into organic manure. Street play,
beach-clean up, human chain are few amongst various activities undertaken by students in our local
Anandvan - The Annual Day
ANANDVAN is an annual event where our students show case their aesthetic
side through performing arts. Each time, a theme is selected and a fiesta of
music, dance and drama is woven around it. The narrative ranges from
st Mahatma Gandhi's relevance to the youth of 21st century to the Anansi tales.
Life skills development programme
Lessons in the dark is a programme by WorldKids Foundation that focuses on award winning international
cinema of various genres that contributes to overall personality development, teaches life skills, builds
confidence, hones communication skills, enhances lateral thinking and promotes values. It reaches out to
children and young adults, with a world of compelling films that engage their imagination, spark their
creativity, respect their intelligence and connect them to global culture. The screening is followed by an
interactive session where the story and ideas brought forward in the film are discussed and a lot of opinions
and thoughts are voiced by the young minds right from Pre-Primary to the Secondary section.
Mindspark is a computer-based adaptive learning programme by Educational Initiatives which primarily
uses questions to help children learn. The questions are 'finely-graded' meaning that there are a very large
number of questions with graded difficulty level. Questions are specially designed to test understanding
and to help students clear their misconceptions. There is very little emphasis on instruction due to the belief
that students learn when they have to think – either to answer a question, or do an activity on the computer.
This learning system complements classroom instruction and adds to teaching.
MRV at the Top!
MRV wins the Best Performing School Award - Visit from Sir Robert Swan
MET Rishikul Vidyalaya received the Best Performing School Award under the Project SEARCH by
TERI – TETRA PAK. This victory is the result of MRV collecting the 95 kgs of Tetra Pak for recycling,
and submitting the report of the same, along with the other environmental activities conducted
throughout the year. The joy of the victory was doubled when MRV student Aryan Patil, Grade V,
was selected as a Tetra Pak ambassador too; he visited Pune for a power interaction with Sir
Robert Swan. The day of the award began with a sense of pride
for all at MRV. Everyone was thrilled to receive Sir Robert Swan,
who was visiting MRV as the award for being the Best
Performing School under the Project SEARCH.
Sir Robert Swan, OBE is a polar explorer, environmental leader and the first person ever
to have walked to the North and South poles. He is an exceptionally gifted
communicator and is regarded as one of the world's top motivational speakers. His
mission to educate the new generation about how they can help save the earth's future
was cleverly delivered with the typical British humor. The hour long session ended with
an interesting Q&A session with the students and teachers, leaving them ever motivated
and committed to the cause of environment.

We were the recipient of a prestigious award given by the British Council of
India. The International School Award is given to a school that maintains a
consistent standard in teaching of concepts through innovative means and
introducing in each lesson an element of Internationalism. ISA required that
one takes up series of activities based on the academic and non-academic
subjects of study. Our tiny tots started with their animal friends, and pondered
on the agriculture of the world; the secondary students tried their hands in
cave paintings across the world, celebrated our festival of lights three times
over as Diwali, Hanukkah, St. Lucias Day and Loi Krathong and recited
humourous poems while acting them out as a group while the higher grades
pondered on the mankind's quest for independence by observing freedom
struggle of USA, Ireland, Bangladesh vis-a-vis India and then brooded on the
power of an atom to create heaven or hell on our planet ,Earth. Not
surprisingly we merited the remark - Outstanding-and were awarded the ISA
at a glittering function at New Delhi.
Our prowess in transacting international curriculum now can be seen as the
ISA kit mark on our website and stationery.
