Vatsalya International School, Borsad had organized "The International Food Fiesta" an ISA (International School Award) activity on 24th January 2015 well organized by the incharge teachers Mr. MANOJ, Mr. PRATIK and Mrs. SELVA. In connection to this activity, “Nutritive Value of the Fast Foods of the countries like India, U.K, Italy, Thailand, Mexico and China was presented to a group of students of our school by the subject expert Ms. DHWANI UPADHYAY. The students were thoroughly explained about the nutritive value of different food items. Finally it was concluded that fast foods have less concentration of nutrients while on the other hand the amount of nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals) is very high in direct natural products.
As an active member of British Council affiliated group of schools, Vatsalya contributed to the International Solidarity Day, 21st December, 2014, by organising an event in which four member countries were honoured by singing of their national anthems by the patriotic students of the school. The students of the four houses, Jupiter, Venus, Neptune and Mars sang the national anthems of United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and India with nationalistic zeal. They made a presentation on the allotted country and handed over an album on the importance and history of the anthem to the Principal and vice principal of the school. The students prepared flags of the countries and took out a flag march around the school. They were aptly guided by various in-charge teachers and their enthusiasm is worth applauding.
