From The Principal’s Desk
Dear Parents and Well Wishers,
Greetings of the season!
The last two sessions have been tough and challenging and as we are about to draw it to a close and start a new session, we can look back thankfully for the resilience and determination shown by everyone to make education of our children go on uninterrupted in spite of all odds.
As we are ushering into a completely new academic session, with a lot of emotional, financial and mental turmoil that this century has shown us, let us pledge and ensure that our wards will be a generation of excellent human beings through a perfect blend of education and life skills.
We are happy to have our children back with us, even though small in number –yet the joy and relief on the faces of everyone associated with them, are visible. We did indeed miss each other for a long while! We are eager to have all other children back with us. Surely, no better gift than this, in this new academic year.
Delhi Public School, is committed to develop in each child intellect, curiosity, empathy and self-reliance . The school maintains a hard-earned reputation for outstanding teaching, pedagogical leadership and students’ achievements.
The human emotions and growth dynamics related to touch, recreation, games and study smouldered slowly beneath a tense unrelenting surface of the pandemic. However hard and challenging it may have been, we can say that we, at Delhi Public School, Durgapur, did not allow ourselves to be drawn into a mire of despair and inactivity. Regular programs and activities did happen, albeit online, reflecting the unflagging zeal and passion of the staff, students and parents at DPS Durgapur for a well-grounded education.
Our actions are born from our thoughts, our thoughts are the product of our values, and values come from our own belief system, if we believe life is miserable, we attract misery; if we believe life is beautiful, we attract happiness. We get what we focus on; so, focus those good things would happen to our children. This is one of the strong variables, which would impact our children.
“The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn …and change”, so stated American psychologist Carl Rogers and today more than ever the aim of educationists is to teach students how to learn, while adapting to the ‘new normal’.
These two years have taught us to face new challenges, gain new experiences and learn new methodologies. There has been radical change in our approach in tackling the hurdles that we are confronted with. We are rising to every occasion with undaunted spirit. Our perseverance unfolds to us new pathways widening our horizon. I must thank the school management, parents and all stake holders for their unflinching support for which the learning process never stopped although the school building was closed.
I strongly believe that education is a collaborative effort that involves professional administrators, committed teachers and motivated students. We dedicate ourselves as professional administrators in creating a dynamic education programme empowering the students in a global perspective.
Together we can make a difference!
