These small schools flourished under the local rulers but after the decline of the local kingdom these art schools were also lost. These schools established to promote and revitalize local craft, imparted training in floral design, drawing, painting and clay modelling along with other subjects like smithy, willow work etc. here local trainees were introduced to the tool of western realism like drawing from models, nature studies in water colors, oil painting etc the work of Master Sansar Chand, The story of modern art in Jammu and Kashmir starts with the opening of technical school in the 1 st quarter of the 20th century, at Srinagar, Jammu Anantnag and Mirpur. Because in the backdrop of the western realism introduced through water colours, oil painting by armature European tourist during the 19th and early 20th century and commission given to the professional Artist by the local rulers.

Student musings - young writers and staff share their skill of writing
A word of thanks to my teacher
When I was low
Had nowhere to God
It was you who cared
When I cried, there was no light
You were there
As a bold bright light
When I trembled
Strong winds blew
You were there and told
Not to despair
When darkness spread
And I dared not to tread
You were there to say
Not to despair
I don’t know to say “Thanks”
You are my treasure
That guides me and gives me
Immense pleasure.
-Jatin Malhotra Class 9th
They all are sky
Some may be good
Some may be bad
Old, young, lady or lad
They will use you their need
Then you will be forgotten in deed.
Who will help you in your need?
If you are sad she will weep
If you are wake she cannot sleep

Help Ever Hurt Never
While helping others, a feeling comes to you only if you give a sincere thought to this. There are people who have chosen this as a motive and do it as a full time job. Other opt in their spare time. Doing small selfless acts not only gives a pleasure but also rejuvenates health in a way and keeps you active. -Ananaya/VII/MM
The Card
With just two words written
An ordinary card it was.
Nevertheless different from others.
As it was from your heart.
For us it buried the hatchet
A long-standing wrath is over.
It spelt magic and did wonder.
Reunited us and increased our care.
With just two words written.
An ordinary card it was.
Ordinary for all expect us
Who knows how much it means for us.
Through all the time with a broken heart.
It felt us as you left.
You must put that feeling on the card.
I kept it near to my heart.
And just two words did it all just two words” miss you”……
Summer Vacation
Summer vacation is probably the happiest period in a student's life. In plains, this lasts for about two months. These vacations generally commence from the second week of May every year. The purpose of the summer vacation is multifold. One is relaxation. A student gets fatigued after the end of the annual examination. He needs rest to recoup health and vitality. The second purpose is to tide over the unbearable heat of the summer months. The third purpose is to provide a chance to a student to make up his deficiency in any particular subject. It also gives an opportunity to him to visit new places. Travelling is an experience and has with it educative value. Manya Gupta (Class X) AV
गर्मी का मौसम है आया।
शरीर पसीने से है लथपथ हुआ ॥
दोपहर में बड़ी जोर से ।
चलती हैगर्म हवाओ की लहरें ॥
धूल मिट्टी सर-सर कर।
आ जाती है अपने घर॥
दोपहर की कड़ी धूप में।
बाहर जाना है मुश्किल ॥
ठंढे पानी में मजा है आता।
गर्मी को है दूर भगाता॥
गर्मी का मौसम है आया।
शरीर पसीने से है लथपथ हुआ ॥
-आकृति जामवाल (कक्षा सातवी )ऐ वी 
Importance of Moral Values in Student Life
Moral Values are the worthy ideals or principles that one follows to distinguish the right from the wrong. These ideals or virtues are considered worthy in building up the character of an individual. Teachers are the source of inspiration for students. The relationship between student and teachers should be strong. Moral Value refers to the good virtues such as honesty, integrity, truthfulness, compassion, helpfulness, love, respectfulness, hard-work etc The future of our country depends upon the moral values imparted to them during their student life. Moral lessons should be properly implemented among students in school and colleges. Children have an immense power of observation and their feelings are deep-rooted. They always observe their parents at home and their teachers in school.The method of teaching moral values to students are universal. It is the most important duty of the teachers. If a child misbehaves or tells lies, people blame the parents and teachers. Children resort to lie for their personal gains. They are really clever and try to get what they want by any means. They will steal and say that they have not. To teach them that stealing or telling lie is bad will be lost labor. It is an unrealistic approach. Thus examples of honesty and truthfulness in school are more effective than precepts or moral preaching. Students are very sensitive. They fast copy their teachers. The teachers should always behave properly and set an example. The students look at them as their ideal. AV
