From the Principal’s Desk:

The month of December has been very engaging and gratifying in many ways. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. These four symbols represent the different areas of STEM education. STEM education integrates concepts that are usually taught as separate subjects in different classes and emphasizes the application of knowledge to real-life situations. A variation of STEM is STEAM, which includes an 'A' for art and design. Artistic design is becoming an important part of STEM education since creativity is an essential part of innovation.

We believe that it is an exciting paradigm for giving children the tools to compete in the highly competitive global economy. S.T.E.A.M 2015 was an inter school science fest organised  on 18th and 19th November 2015 which witnessed some of the best brains from schools across Bangalore proving their prowess in varied events.  The fest was successful in giving the message to the children that creativity and innovation doesn’t stop only at science, innovation can happen at any level or any discipline. 

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10th  October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.Delhi Public School has always promoted environment which creates opportunities for children and young people’s  voices to be respected and to contribute to decisions that impact on their wellbeing, learning and environment.The Health and Wellness Department of Delhi Public school comprising of psychologists, counsellors, special educators, doctors, nurses and  yoga teachers  hosted a three day event “Katalyst – Break the stigma”  on Oct 14, 15 and 16 to create awareness about mental health issues and encourage seeking help to overcome them. In addition to this the school is conducting a Health Screening as a part of the annual preventive health programme.

Students from our school were taken for an educational tour to Nasa, Kennedy Space Center in Orlando, USA, in order to provide them with an adequate mix of learning and fun. The delegation, comprising of students from standard 8 to 11 accompanied by their teachers, spent 10 days touring the facilities at Kennedy Space Center and interacting with Nasa astronauts. The trip to NASA was an enriching and unforgettable experience which inspired the students and taught them that nothing is impossible for the indomitable human spirit.

 In continuation with our series of exchange programmes, Germans were extended a heartfelt welcome to India. The Project has been an eminent part of the exchange programme wherein 21 students of DPS Bangalore South visited their partner school, Christoph Jacob Treu Gymnasium, at Lauf in Germany from 3rd July to 21st July 2015 and similarly 21 students from CJT  visited our school from 31st October to 2nd November 2015. Both the teams have been working on the project Life of Colours and Colours of Life during this exchange apart from exploring the culture, tradition, cuisine and spectacular landscape of each other’s country.  

20 November is Universal Children's Day, a special day for children and the societies they live in.Established by the United Nations (UN) in 1954, Universal Children's Day aims to promote the welfare of children everywhere and to encourage understanding between children all over the world. We celebrated the day by organizing poster making competition for class 6 and students of classes 7 and 8 participated in elocution.

To spread the importance of the Indian Constitution, 26th  November was observed as the Constitution Day of India in order to honour our democracy. The day has also been declared as the Constitution Day to spread awareness about its architect Dr B.R. Ambedkar. To commemorate the day poster making competition was organised for the students of classes 7 and 8 illustrating the significance of our constitution.

I feel proud when I share with you that Delhi Public School, Bangalore South was ranked 6th in the state of  Karnataka and 49th  in the country  in the September issue of Education World.

It was a privilege for our school to host the Inter School Debate and Dance competition organised by Bangalore Sahodaya Schools Complex on 30th October 2015. After a fierce battle of words Sri Kumaran’s Children home were adjudged the winners of the Debate competition. In the Senior Dance Category there was a tie between Sri Kumaran’s Children Home and Swami Vivekananda for the first position.
