From The Principal’s Desk
There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children – one is roots and the other wings
We, at DPS Rajkot, aim at making learning an enriching experience for every student enrolled in the school in a happy and stimulating milieu, through host of opportunities, guidance and encouragement in all spheres of school life. Our vision is to provide our students with the highest level of education and service. Our mission is to train the students to become strong in mind, body and spirit, ready to face the challenges of today and tomorrow and comprehend and evaluate the old and the new in local and global contexts. Being a part of the extended DPS family with over 200 schools in India and abroad, we come endowed with the tradition of some of the best and innovative practices for which Delhi Public Society and its schools are recognized internationally.
With infrastructural facilities at par with the best schools in the region, child centric and holistic approach to education, the school is fully equipped to provide a secure and conducive environment keeping in mind the growing needs of students in the 21st Century.
The CBSE results show our students securing 100% marks in subjects like Maths, Biology and I.P., outshining the past performances with each passing year and pitching our school among the best performing CBSE schools in the city. The students who are passing out of the school are being absorbed in some of the best educational institutes in the country like IIT, VIT, Nirma and so on. The school takes pride in the fact that our students are contributing to the society by joining the defence services, or as engineers, doctors, artists, architects, entrepreneurs, designers, journalists, musicians, artists and many other disciplines.
Transcending the shackles of conventional curricula, ample scope is given to each child to display the best in him/her through carefully designed activities like Science Exhibition, Sports Day, Talent Shows, Radio Programmes, Interschool, Inter DPS and Inter house events and competitions like Best Singer, Dancer and Instrumentalist of the School. Eminent personalities are invited to regularly interact with the students and out bound activities like field trips and tours provide the students with the much needed exposure and hands on learning experience.
The students regularly write articles on social issues which are being published in national newspapers. Rallies on awareness about the traffic rules and the evils of tobacco organized by the students have been widely appreciated by the society. Through the environment and community service clubs, the students are doing their bit to spread awareness about environment and reach out to those in need with a strong sense of love and caring and sharing attitude towards their less privileged counterparts. Each and every child is given an opportunity to participate in such Cultural Programmes held in the school. That in itself is the unique thing about the school!
In a nutshell, all academic programmes and activities at DPS Rajkot work towards one purpose- to help the students develop a life of significance for themselves and for others.
With the synthesized and harmonious efforts of the students, staff, management and the support of the parents, I have no doubt that the school will move significantly in the direction of achieving its mission and realizing its vision.
