From the Principal’s Desk

Principal

“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.”

The investiture ceremony is one

of the first momentous occasions of the school where the newly elected members of the school’s council are officially vested with their powers and positions .Student leaders take up their responsibilities - organizing and coordinating activities for the academic year - with great enthusiasm. It gives them the opportunity to practice their leadership qualities in a spirit of co-operative endeavour. They gradually understand that all leadership begins with leading oneself and finding ways in which to contribute positively to the school community.The council has students that are both elected and selected; through voting and rigorous interviews. Thus the procedure is a democratic and transparent one. This august occasion held on 26th June 2014conveyed our aim and commitment in moulding our young dipsites into the ‘leaders of tomorrow’

World Environment Day is a yearly event held to raise global awareness of the need to take positive environmental action. It is a principal vehicle of United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. 2014 theme for World Environment Day is to focus on 'Small Islands and Climate Change', the official slogan for the year 2014 is 'Raise Your Voice Not the Sea Level. DPS Bangalore South commemorated the special day with a host of activities across grades, while middle school targeted their campaign within the school premises, high school students took up the responsibility of generating awareness beyond the school boundary . The green crusaders created quite an impact .As individuals there are many activities one can do to live in harmony with the environment and to benefit it. The choice of how we go about this is really up to us, provided the end result is a lessening of our personal impact on the planet. Let us be more mindful of the resources we use personally and do something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

In our endeavour to continue with doing our bit for the society, Health and wellness day was celebrated on 12th June where our students interacted with the drivers and the support staff of the school and made them aware of the harmful effects of Tobacco.

We at Delhi Public School, Bangalore South believe in the power of Youth, so the senior school students and DPS Alumni joined hands in organizing the first edition of DIPSMUN.A Model United Nations, popularly referred to as a MUN, is a conference similar to the United Nations in which students participate as delegates to various UN Committees. Participants research and formulate political positions based on the actual policies of the countries they represent. It  was scheduled for the 23rd to the 25th of July, 2014, and over 50 schools were invited. The overwhelming response from the participating schools not only made us realize that today’s youth are the frontrunners of peace but also that our future is in capable hands. In continuation with our efforts to provide our children  a better understanding of the functioning of the government bodies, students of classes IX and X visited Vidhan Soudha on 28th July 2014 where they witnessed a press conference being addressed by the hon’ble Chief Minister Shri Siddaramiah. It was a true learning experience.

On the 22nd of July 2014, Delhi Public School Bangalore South celebrated Compassion Day, an initiative by the elected student council. The aim of the program was to acknowledge the contribution of the school support staff, which plays a vital role in ensuring the smooth functioning of the institution on a daily basis, and to give back to them .Donations collected from the students and staff were used for the purchase of umbrellas for the bus and housekeeping ayahs, bus drivers and security guards. Members of the literary council distributed the same amongst them.

Students of DPS South actively participated in  DHEETI, an Inter-School Fest organised by Jyoti Kendriya Vidhyala as a part of their Silver Jubilee celebrations. The event saw an active participation by many schools from all over Bangalore on the 18th and 19th of July, 2014. Many of our students bought laurels to the school in the events organized as a part of DHEETI.

The DPS Fraternity of Bangalore South, believes that in order to sensitize the children of today towards the talent hidden in the differently abled people, to understand that they are not disabled but differently abled, to ignite the passion for creative excellence in the able bodied children there was a performance by the Ability Unlimited Foundation (AUF), a voluntary, non-political, social service organization for the benefit of the persons with disabilities (PWD) irrespective of race, religion, caste, colour and creed. The beautifully created Dance Drama under the capable mentorship of Guruji Syed Sallauddin Pasha awakened the inner conscience of the students' self and instilled a positive attitude in them towards the performers. A cheque of Rs. 31000/- was presented by the management to the Foundation.

It is a proud moment for me when I share with you a noble accomplishment of the students of NSS club. The students have donated an amount of Rs.20000 to Anjana, a 12 year old girl who is suffering from Leukemia and is at present undergoing treatment at HCG hospital.

 

We encourage children to discover and enjoy learning. We encourage them to go beyond comparison, competition, rewards, punishment or fear and, instead, look within to find their own motivations for learning, go beyond the classroom in search of knowledge. To close, I would like to thank all the parents who have stood by us and have encouraged us in all our endeavours.
