Education with a value system has to be so designed that righteousness in the heart is developed in young minds. That should be the mission of education. The prime learning environment is five to seventeen years of age. This reminds me of an ancient Greek teacher’s saying, “Give me a child for seven years, afterwards, let God or Devil take the child. They cannot change the child.” This indicates the power of great teachers and what they can inculcate in the young minds. Besides imparting quality education, the teachers help them to be creative, innovative as well as good citizens. So to express their gratitude and thank the teachers for being their mentors, students organized a fun-filled cultural programme on 5th September2013 to celebrate the Teacher’s Day.

September Newsletter

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action--
Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.

Rabindranath Tagore

Gitanjali

 

The month of August brings along with it a reminder of the triumph of hundreds of thousands of martyred souls, a celebration of freedom. We at Delhi Public School celebrated India’s 67th Independence Day with great patriotic fervor. The tricolor fluttered in all its glory inspiring all of us to take pride in our country’s achievements, and also nurturing in our young children the spirit of unity and uprightness, motivating them to strive for excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity, so that the nation constantly rises to new heights.

It is an ecstatic moment when I share with you the journey of a little girl Anjana Padmanabhan who with sheer hard work and determination stepped into the world of music holding the hands of her parents and moving forward with the support of her fellow Dipsites. She proved to the world that nothing is beyond reach .Yes, we witnessed the growth of  Anjana from a positive young dipsite to the first Junior Indian Idol. Her second family at DPS supported her in every possible way and her achievements have made us proud. We congratulate her and extend heartfelt wishes for her future endeavors.

Aryan Jindal of class 3 stood first in an Art contest organized by Pogo and he has got an opportunity to meet Rob, the host of MAD, their hit show.

Our sports stalwarts have proved their mettle yet again. Delhi Public School, Bangalore East hosted and organized an Inter School Badminton Championship where more than 80 schools participated. Our Badminton Team did us proud by winning the trophy.

In this era of globalization, learning about the world is more important than ever. No matter what field or profession students enter, they will interact with people from different countries and diverse backgrounds. Problems taking place halfway around the globe impact our lives, our country, and our communities. Students learn about the world as they prepare for Model UN conferences, represent countries other than their own, and present possible solutions to global problems in committee. At DPS Bangalore we understand the need for globalization so the school organized its very first Model United Nations to help build a greater understanding amongst the youth leaders of the world. It was an exhilarating experience for the whole school

"The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes, and leads you onto the next plateau,” Dan Rather

Teachers have an influencing role in the life of every student. They are like beacons of light, guiding the students in the formative years of their life. Teachers mould the students and in the process shape their future. What is learnt from the teachers remains, throughout a student’s life. Teachers do need encouragement and support from the community to feel that their efforts are being recognized. To serve the purpose, Teacher's Day is celebrated throughout the country, year after year. By celebrating National Teacher's Day, we thank the teachers for providing their invaluable guidance. 5th September is celebrated as Teachers' day as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society. It is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, and was a well-known diplomat, scholar, president of India and above all a teacher. So as the head of the institution I would like to appreciate our team of teachers who have toiled hard to help their students attain greater heights, have  opened  up young minds, showing them the wonders of the intellect and the miracle of being able to ... Without them this all would not have been possible.

I would also like to wish the students All the very Best for the upcoming exams. A word of advice to the parents – help your child believe in himself/herself. As a parent, pay special attention towards your child and encourage him/her to overcome their worries and gain confidence to go through their exams successfully. Also, it must be ensured that the child sleeps well for about 6-8 hours. This helps in increasing the thinking and concentration power of the child. Help the child see exams as just another milestone in their overall learning process. Be realistic in your expectations from your child. They should be based on his/her own potential and past performances, not on others! I hope that with your cooperation and the guidance of the teachers our children will become assets for the society.

By education I mean an all-round drawing out of the best in child and man-body, mind and spirit. Literacy is not the end of education or even the beginning.” –M. K. Gandhi 

Education certainly is a means to all-round progress of man. In other words, the pathway to human-development goes through the lanes of education. Moreover, true education is the sole basis of achieving one’s purpose in life.We at Delhi Public School, Bangalore South measure education not only through academic performance but also through the overall development of a child. Our holistic approach aims to develop children to excel in all aspects of life. Creative leadership and liberal education, which in fact go together, are the first requirements for a hopeful future for humankind. Fostering these--leadership, learning, and empathy between cultures--was and remains the purpose of the international exchange programs organized by the school.

It is a proud moment for me when Ishare with you  that  21 students  from our school represented  India on the International platform, and not only did they make us proud but told the world that India has arrived!!!! Their visit to the partner school -Christoph-Jacob-Treu-Gymnasium in  Lauf, Bavaria made them realize that there is no end to learning. The project they worked on with the partner school, during the course of the program, was: Tell me your story - the healing hands of words. Their presentations and the story telling sessions were applauded by the partner school. The exchange programs to Italy and Japan are just round the corner wherein the students of our school will have an opportunity to interact and learn more about the other cultures of the world, making them more sensitive and wiser international citizens. In the process, they willimbibe social skills, understand cultures, pick up different languages and develop a global perspective.

Another accomplishment which reiterates our belief of developing all round children is that AKASH RAJU of standard XII has been selected for the Indian skating team and will be  participating in the prestigious World championship to be held at Oostede, Belgium from 22nd August to 31st August 2013.We wish him all the very best . Another feather in our cap is Anjana Padmanabhan, a student of class V who has reached in the top 8 of the Junior Indian Idol, we wish her good luck.

Our sports stars have also proved their mettle in the nationalarena. This brings me to the importance of sports in these formative years. Participating in sports instills a sense of dedication. Our school is committed to actively raising the quality of life for every child. We want all children, regardless of age, to achieve their full potential.  Our mission is to provide practical, step by step assistance.

Our swimming champions have done us proud,Shraddha Sudhir, 14- yr- old student of DPS South   bagged a gold medal in  the 40th junior National Aquatics Championship held at Hyderabad ,Sanjeev R of Std. VIII 'G'  secured two gold medals in the tournament. 

Congratulations! We are extremely proud of you and wish you success in all the forthcoming tournaments.

Teaching and learning can become inherently spontaneous and student-centered when moved from the confines of the classroom into the world at large. We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development. Learning outside theclassroom is not an end in itself, rather, we see it as a vehicle to develop the capacity to learn. This enables young people to construct their own learning. With this thought in mind and to promote  a lifelong -- process of analyzing, questioning, and discussing ,a science exhibition was organized by the students of class IV and V which had presentations, working models and experiments. It was an enthusiastic display on topics ranging from global warming to conservation of energy. It was a delight to see our young dipsites being aware of issues such as rain water harvesting and waste management. Now we can breathe a sigh of relief that our planet is in safe hands.

Quality learning experiences in ‘real’ situations have the capacity to raise achievement across arange of subjects. In continuation with our efforts of bridging the gap between theory and reality, students of Biology from class 11 visited NIMHANS. The National Institute of Mental Health and Neuroscience (NIMHANS) located in Bangalore, is a premier institute for mental health sciences as well as neurosciences.The students interacted with the pioneers in their respective fields. The students had hands on experience with actual specimens thus, this visit enhanced our students knowledge and has ignited a flame in the field of neuroscience.

To inspire the students and make them into progressive citizens of tomorrow the students of standard IX, XI and XII(Humanities) had the privilege to attend a session at the Vidhan Sabha on 26July,2013.The ongoing monsoon session at the Legislative assembly was a very enriching experience for the students as they could witness the proceedings of the day and be a part of the discussions and deliberations.

To sensitize our students to the ways in which the visually and mentally challenged cope with life and also to complement the newly introduced novel ‘The story of my life’ by Helen Keller, the students of class X paid a visit to the School for the Blind -The Thirumurthy Rural Development Centre(TRDC), located in Kanakapura, about 50 km away from our school. It was an eye opener for them and they came back with a changed mindset.

Community service instills a sense of responsibility in students for something more than just their grades.There is no better way to bring a little of the real world into a student’s life. It gives them a better view of what goes on in the real world outside of their school life. In order to make our students aware of reality the NSS students visited a government school and shared a day in their life. Appreciating their fight against all odds our students came back with a lot of gratitude towards the people who make their life comfortable.

As a part of the ‘Conserve my planet’ program (A participative educational program for green ambassadors)an interaction with Mr. G.B Ravichandra, Director, Network Connectivity of Schneider Electric India Pvt. Ltd. was organized for the students of standard V and VI. 40 Green Ambassadors were inductedso as to educate young minds on energy conservation and to make students realize that in their own little ways they can make adifference to the issue of global warming.

With that we come to an end of a happening month and looking forward to yet another exciting month!!!!

Message from the Principal

“When students become leaders in an egalitarian community, the school benefits from their perspective and their idealism.”

Investiture Ceremony is that occasion where we as a school respect and acknowledge the upcoming leaders and repose trust in them. It is a defining moment for the newly elected representatives where the school entrusts responsibilities on the ‘young leaders’ to uphold the values of the school and to keep ‘the School’ flag flying high while discharging their duties honestly and fairly.
