HOUSE SYSTEM IN V.B.S.
The suggestion came from our founder Principal when the idea of naming houses after ‘Flowers’ ‘Colours’ and ‘People’ did not strike the right Chord.
Mr. Painuli decided to name the four houses after the ancient kingdoms of Yore, which were rich in culture and heritage and also occupied or surrounded the present geographical situation of Poorvanchal. We have four houses, i.e,- Avantika, Vaishali, Kaushambi, and Sravasti.
ORIGINS OF HOUSE:
1. AVANTIKA: Avantika is the erstwhile name for Ujjayini, the present day Ujjain. It is one of the seven sacred cities of the Hindus and Kumbh-Mela is held every 12 years in this city. Since the 4th century BC, the city has marked the first meridian of longitude in Hindu geography. It was the residence of Ashoka when he was the viceroy of the western provinces of the Mauryan Empire. The house is represented by Red colour.
2. VAISHALI: Lord Mahavira was born here. Vaishali has remained the ancient centre of trade and learning. It is mentioned in Ramayana too. Vaishali is important because it was the first Democratic republic, even before the Greeks. Lord Buddha preached his sermons in Vaishali.
The house is represented by Green colour.
3. KAUSHAMBI: Kaushambi was the capital of MatsyaKingdom in 6th century B.C. It was an important centre for Buddhist learning. It is situated at a distance if 50 km from the present day Allahabad. It became a centre of major religious activities during the Manryan era. Ashoka had created two pillars with inscriptions at Kaushambi.
The house is represented by Yellow colour.
4. SRAVASTI: Sravast was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Kosala and has the honour of sheltering Lord Buddha for 25 rainy seasons in the JetvanaGardens.
Sravasti was an important centre of Buddhist activities during the Muryan era.
The house is represented by Blue colour.
It is essential to nurture a feeling of belonging and possessiveness as it gives us an insight into our roots. The house system develops a spirit of nationalism and team work. The students are equally divided among the four houses and they compete with each. Other in a spirit of true sportsmanship. They exhibit courage, unity and friendship in the face of adversity and are milling to accept victory and defeat as another chapter that is taught in the classroom.
The house system has successfully managed to inculcate the right values essential for the coming generations.
