Our children form a strong force and contribute in kind in times of natural calamities like Ladakh outburst etc.


Students are exposed to various co-curricular activities like self defense, dance, music, art and craft etc. It is our constant endeavour to bring every child on the stage to showcase his talent and enhance his confidence. Class assemblies are a step in this direction.

Student Body

Social leadership and responsibility are best learnt through active participation. Selected after a careful scrutiny of their school records, a number of student appointments are entrusted with various responsibilities and share the task of maintaining decorum in the school. The student appointments meet the Headmistress periodically.

Student’s Bulletins

To encourage creative expression, children with a flair for writing are given an opportunity to contribute articles and sketches for the Annual Magazine and the bulletin boards put up at every floor.

Parent-Teacher Association

P.T.A meetings give an opportunity to the parents and teachers to meet and discuss the progress of the children. The P.T.A has opened a Benevolent Fund to help and educate children who unfortunately lose their earning parent while they are still studying in the school. This gesture has been greatly appreciated by those who would otherwise find it difficult to educate their children in DPS. Parents who unfortunately fall a victim to these circumstances, should apply every year to the Principal and Secretary, P.T.A for exemption of tuition fee for their children.
