Youth and Leadership Camp was organized by the ITIHAAS and TALF group in collaboration with NIIT University, Neemrana. It took place on the campus of NIIT University at Neemrana and continued for 3 days, from 23rd October 2015 to 25th October 2015.

DPS Mathura Road was one among the top 10 schools that participated in this prestigious gathering: Scindia School, Doon School, Mayo College Girls’ School, Mayo College Boys’ School, M.G.D. School, Ecole Global School, and Vasant Valley School.

A team of 6 class XI students lead by Mrs. Chanchal Gurwara represented DPS Mathura Road. Their names are:

  • Bhoomika Malhotra(XI-B)
  • Pahul Kaur(XI-G)
  • Mehvish(XI-L)
  • Insha Waziri(XI-M)
  • Saumya Dhyani(XI-L)
  • Nandenie Gupta(XI-L)

The students stayed at the NIIT University Campus for the duration of the workshop. This was critically advantageous in preparing the students for their higher studies as well as imbibing in them a sense of independence. The NIIT University campus proved to be opulently eco-friendly with various undertakings aimed at maintaining a sustainable, green environment, such as Water Recycling, an EAT (Earth Air Tunnel) Ventilation System and Smart Structuring, etc. This added to the students’ learning experience in regard to the importance of sustainability and their sense of responsibility towards the country as citizens.
Enriching ballads of the Indian Heritage were passed on to the students via visits to the remarkable Neemrana Fort and the Rajkumari’s Bowli. Along with these visits, the students embarked upon adventures like trekking, valley crossing and tree plantation drives. The students were divided into groups to enable interaction with each other and they were assigned various tasks like presentations, musical performances, art and craft to be performed in these particular groups to hone their leadership skills. Overall, the experience was extremely engaging and sensitized the students to Indian culture and the value of sustainability while molding young students into the leaders of tomorrow.
Prof. Rajendra K.Pandey (V.C. of NIIT University) and Retd. Maj. Gen. A.K. Singh (Dean, NIIT University) were kind enough to share their knowledge with students through their very informative speeches.
