From The Principal Desk

PrincipalDear Well-wishers,

Greetings!

In the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak DPS DAULATPUR was quick to adapt to the unprecedented situation and adopt new and innovative methods of teaching-learning to tackle the crisis and thus continue to render education to its students. We were successful in offering effective online education to our students right from beginning according to a wellstructured timetable. Not only did we cater to the scholastic needs of our children but we also took care of the co-scholastic aspect necessary for their development by integrating Physical Education and Sports, Music and Dance, Arts and Craft with our scholastic programme.

Despite all odds, we continued to offer a plethora of ONLINE activities and opportunities to our students to nurture their potential. Our children continue to bring laurels to the school, with Aishwarya Bohra of Class-X receiving an award from the honourable Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Shri Trivendra Singh Rawat, for her painting at the prestigious competition organised by the Times of India and UREDA. Kalangan – the Inter School creative art and craft competition – continued to nurture the artistic talent of students across the city by offering online participation.

Virtual Talent Hunt 2020-21 offered students the opportunity to showcase their creative talents online. The programme received an overwhelming response from both students and parents alike. With over 2,000 likes to her name, Aahana Choudhary of class I-B emerged as the winner.

The pandemic could not curb our fervour for our culture as we celebrated all festivals and occasions online with great zeal and passion. Beautiful videos of all occasions are readily available on the school portal and the YouTube for all to watch. The online version of our newsletter Smrityansh is a beautiful showcase of all the activities that took place round the year

The Annual Prize Distribution Ceremony for 2019-20 which got postponed due to the pandemic was organised in the month of January and February 2021. Students received their trophies and certificates from eminent personalities of the town.

Assessment was conducted throughout the year with online tests and examinations through Microsoft Forms. Oral test and viva were also held to test the understanding of the students. Our teachers continued to upgrade their skills and knowledge by participating in online teachers’ training programmes offered by the CBSE and by the Delhi Public School Society.

Parents play a vital role in not only nurturing the child but also in shaping her/his personality, inculcating good habit, values and character. In the current scenario, the role of parents becomes all the more important. I am thankful to our parents’ fraternity for their patience and support during the pandemic. I am hopeful that they will continue to support and cooperate with the school in its pursuit for excellence.

I extend a very warm and cordial welcome to you to the New Academic Session 2021-22.

Dear Well-wishers,

Greetings!

With a plethora of events and activities conducted in succession round the year, the session 2019-20 was indeed very eventful and happening. The introduction of Abacus, Vedic Maths, Robotics, and Animation received overwhelming response from our students and was wholeheartedly welcomed by our parents’ fraternity. We were successful in helping our students discover their latent potential, and in motivating them to scale great heights.

Some of our aspiring students brought laurels to both the school and their parents by bagging prestigious awards at innumerable Inter-School competitions held round the year. Our budding skaters brought accolades to the school on many occasions. Students from several schools across the city showcased their artistic calibre and creativity in various art forms at the 2nd Inter-School Creative Art and Craft Competition ‘Kalangan’ hosted by us. We also witnessed a spectacular array of talent and skills in dance, drama and music at the First Cultural Fiesta 2019 ‘PRAVAAH’. The event became the talk of the town for its grandeur, fabulous props and costumes, marvellous stage settings, and mind-blowing performances by our loving children who participated with full zeal & enthusiasm. The fifth issue of our newsletter – Smrityansh – beautifully highlights the events and activities held round the year.

I am hopeful that this momentum will escalate and our children will continue to bring many more accolades to the school in the new session as well.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the nationwide lockdown thereafter, we were quick to adapt and adopt new and innovative methods of E-learning in order to tackle the unprecedented crisis, and thus ushering into the new academic session 2020-21 by offering E-learning platform to our students. When most other schools were clueless about the situation, we swiftly geared up to offer virtual classes on Microsoft Teams collaborative learning platform, WhatsApp class groups and the School Portal.

E-Learning, Online Tests, Virtual Classrooms, Virtual PTM’s and Online Co-Scholastic Activities are being successfully conducted by our committed teachers who are working tirelessly from home and providing online classes and offline support to our dearest students. Our students are quickly gearing up to the challenge and actively participating in the e-learning process.

On the onset of the new session, I am delighted to announce that we are now a full-fledged CBSE Affiliated Senior Secondary (10+2) School. Online classes are being successfully delivered to our maiden batch of class 11 in all the three Academic Streams – Science, Commerce and Humanities.

As we usher into the new session, I would like to express my heartiest gratitude to our parents’ fraternity for their valuable feedback and appreciation of our efforts. I am hopeful that you will continue to support and cooperate with the school in our pursuit for excellence.

On behalf of our ever generous, supportive and visionary School Management, and the DPS Daulatpur family, I extend a very warm and cordial welcome to all of you to the New Academic Session 2020-21.

Dear Students, Parents and all my Staff members,

It gives me great pleasure to share my excitement and pass on my most heartfelt thoughts to you, as I start my new journey with you. Together we shall strive to create new possibilities and aim to scale new heights.

I am honoured indeed to continue with the Delhi Public School family. I have had the privilege to tend to another venture in similar nascent stages. I have seen the sapling take shape into a lovely tree, spreading its branches proudly as I lovingly tended to it and there is no greater pleasure in seeing your dreams take shape. I am here to give my best to help you make your dreams come true.

I was impressed by our Management team here from the time I met them. I was moved by their passion, concern and commitment towards making a success of this venture, to give an opportunity to the children of this beautiful place and the surrounding areas a chance to dream, to spread their wings and soar high! I am sincerely committed to be a part of your dream, I shall be privileged indeed to be able to make a difference!

We are blessed to be in the proximity of the holy Ganges! This proximity should remind us to take pride in our spiritual history. Spirituality is not limited by the confines of any religion but extends to all humanity. Above all, we should not forget that our children are the community’s greatest asset.

We at DPS focus on building strength of character as topmost in our list of best practices; our aim is that our children stand out for high ethics and moral values when they leave the corridors of our school. We at DPS are driven to ensure the children grow to great heights where the sky is the only limit. To quote Jean Piaget, the famous Swiss child development psychologist-

“The principal goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.”

Our school has a very dedicated staff that will ensure our children grow into capable and confident adults with skills necessary to grab the 21st century by its horns. Students need to be nurtured and given access to opportunities of all possible kinds to learn, to grow, to challenge their minds and to achieve their true potential. We at DPS will nurture our children, provide them with care and opportunities to grow and showcase their talent. The DPS program exposes the students to national and potentially international competitions. All these provide venue for overall growth to the students.

Our DPS program is a well-rounded program with extensive classroom education and a balance of extra-curricular activities. We want to ensure our students are academically strong and grow with basic values of respect-respect for other human beings, animals, culture and nature.

I welcome your help and healthy cooperation to take our school to great heights in the years to come. This DPS may be the start of bigger and better things for our community. Our students bolstered by our school will prove to be the real wealth or 'daulat' for this place.


May God bless us in all our endeavours.



Regards

Poonam Shrivastava
