Schools Speak – Edition 1 – Mrs Jyoti Arora Principal DPWS shares her thoughts on School Education

In our first edition of Schools Speak, Smt Jyoti Arora Principal DPWS shares her thoughts on significance of school education and how their school envisions to achieve the same.

No matter how far you go and how much you achieve,
It is the small victories in school…
Which will create a legacy of greatness!

It has been rightly said that the rooting system of a tree is equal to the schooling
system of a man. The schooling system with its specific concern regarding all
round development transforms the child into a child of right living, a man who
creates his own destiny, a man who makes the whole surroundings happy and
healthy. He comes out of the shell ‘me’ to ‘we’ not just to live but make other’s
lives.
For me education is developing the capability to comprehend the world around
with an ignited mind. It is about thinking extensively, logically and critically.
Intelligence plus character- that is true education. One needs to essentially be a
good learner all through life if one desires to handle life well. I have 28 years of
teaching experience and have had an opportunity of handling many reputed
schools and can say with a lot of pride that my teachers and students have
tremendously contributed to my life. Their supportive and responsive attitude has
raised my morale at every step, creating a strong collaborative instruction in the
school. I believe in appreciating people for their strengths, whatever they may be
and learn from them at every step, thus creating a world around me that is a big,
happy family!

We at Delhi Public World School, Noida Extension firmly believe that education
consists of series of enchantments, each raising the individuals to a higher level of
awareness, understanding and kinship with all living things. What carries us
through our life is our ability to learn, to grow, to change and to evolve
possibilities for ourselves. Transfer of knowledge can never be the purpose of the
education, the purpose is to guide the learning process and to put responsibility
for developing competencies and attitudes amongst children. As we all know that
education is a tool which alone can inculcate national and cultural values among
the younger generations. In order to improve the social phase of our country it is
very important to educate our young generations; as a nation always needs
younger and stronger shoulders. With this thought we endeavor to develop
individuality with quality education. An education which prepares children not
just for careers, but for life. Our aim is to give holistic education to our learners so
that they can take all the challenges in their stride and emerge victorious in life.

We really feel proud to say that Delhi Public World School, Noida Extension stand
as a mark for the finest schools in Noida as it propagates an environment
conducive to learning and truly adhere to the vision that “Where the beginning is
right, the end is always glorious.”
According to Martin H. Fischer “Education aims to give you a boost up the ladder
of knowledge. Too often, it just gives you a cramp on one of its rungs”.
Education refers to the intellectual and moral training that systematically enlarges
the spheres of knowledge, develops character as well as mental faculties and
evolves a definite pattern on relationship between an individual and a society.
Our school provides quality education which will help students to maintain their
goodwill in the society in future as well. The institute commits to provide a good
learning environment for the kids in order to train them in different fields with
highest possible standards. It values each and every child as gift of opportunity.
We believe that education that can contribute towards the development of the
whole society and nation is true education ant that is what we are doing in this
pious institution for every individual.

We live today in a world that is so different from the one we grew up in, the one
we were educated in. The world today is changing at such an accelerated rate and
we as educators need to pause and reflect on the entire system of education. Are
our schools well equipped to prepare our children to face the challenges that the
future holds? Questions such as these are factors that motivate us to go through a
continuous process of reflection and hence we at Delhi Public World School,
Noida Extension work at implementing a well-balanced curriculum and all round
development to ensure that children who walk onto the portals of our school will
not just love their school years but truly ne prepared to face life’s challenges and
will be the leaders of tomorrow.
It was Margaret Mead who said, “Children must be taught how to think not what
to think not what to think” and to enable this, our motto of knowledge,
imagination and innovation is encouraged through a holistic approach. “To
motivate the weak, to address the average and challenge the gifted” is the
teaching vision of our school. Even as we impart education to impart to match the
advancement in technology and globalization, we march our children ahead Delhi
Public World School ethics of moral values and principles. We endeavor
consistently to instill these qualities in our children. We pride ourselves to help
them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the next
generation.

We wish to reiterate this year what we had framed as our Rosette Stone much
along the basic principles on which we would engineer the aspirations of our
young children into the practical realities. It gives a feeling of immense pride to
share that the school was abuzz with creative activities and colossal spectrum of
events throughout the session in 2016-17 being carried forward in 2017-18 with
equal zeal and enthusiasm. The magnanimous journey of 2016-17 started with
Parent Orientation Programme –The first Milestone, to the Mother’s Day
Programme dedicated to the sweet and the lovely mothers. The International
Education Week followed in July where the students were made to adopt
different countries which made them not only learn about the traditions and
cultures of various countries but also enriched themselves with the value of
International harmony. It was a huge success and an indelible learning exposure
for kids as we believe in hundred percent participation. The mission is to create
global citizens who will walk confidently into the desired institutions in India or
abroad from our portals and excel. It had been a splendid week within array of
activities that were conducted to build creativity, enhance cognitive development
and high order thinking skills in our students. ‘Off the shelf- Literary Fest was
another hallmark. Hosting this interschool event was another step forward which
exposed many talents on the stage. The Grandparents Day dedicated to honor
and adore the grandparents truly, the students accelerated the workforce and
were rewarded with glory.
The excellence in performance has just not been restricted to the academic
forum, sports activities have unfolded burgeoning talents on the field. Name
skating or football, FUTSAL or karate, the young ‘power houses’ of the school
have shown their mettle. ‘Sports Fiesta’ is another land mark –an Interschool
event which brings sporting talents to the fore in the field of tennis, chess,
badminton and cricket. The indomitable zeal and the in satiating urge to steer
ahead came to the forefront in all kinds of activities and competitions held in
school and other schools. The Red Color Day, Rakhi Making Competition,
Calligraphy Competition, Master Chef, Patriotic Week and Dusshera,
Janmashtami, Eid, Gurupurab and Christmas Celebration and myriad other events
were the medium of their creative expressions. Their concealed imagination
worked wonders in each and every activity.

Ever since its inception, Delhi Public World School has been striving to be an
embodiment of excellence by maintaining extremely high standards of academics
in educating the ‘young minds’. In order to sow the seeds of student leadership amongst
the young students, Delhi Public World School, Noida Extension had
conducted an Investiture Ceremony in July, 2017. The students were entrusted
with responsibilities with the aim of leading with example, thus learning the
attributes of effective leadership and practicing good human values. The most apt
philosophy of the 21 st century – “less is more”- is adopted as education model. All
this ensures a happy teaching and happy environment. We feel that each child is
unique and should be provided joyful, stress free and child centric learning
environment. There is a saying “I read, I forget; I write I remember, I do I
understand.” Understanding this basic psychology, the teachers of various
departments not only deliver the facts to their students but through the various
labs also lay emphasis on doing and thus learning by self. The Math’s lab, Social
Science lab, the Discovery lab of the school are the cradles of the future engineers
and doctors. The numerous clubs also cater towards the holistic development of
the child and provide many opportunities to the students to gain confidence,
strength, team work and learn the ‘real – world skills’. “The Science that deals
with the material universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere is ASTRONOMY”.
Exploring space is one of the most inquisitive things that children can be engaged
in. The school has taken an initiative to have an Astronomy Club in order to
provide great opportunity to learn and explore innovative methods of exploring
the universe. The STEM Robotics classes are conducted to create a new workforce
of problem solvers, innovators and inventors who are self-reliant and think
logically. The students in STEM classes are taught to investigate and work through
observations, reasoning, predicting, reflecting and critical thinking.
Thus collaborating learning is promoted in order to build a community of caring
individuals working towards a common goal of increasing the student’s positive
outcomes. The school is striving to provide every possible inputs and flexibility to
facilitate the learners to develop academically, physically, intellectually and
emotionally. In the process of world transformation, we need faith, hope and
respect for environment, which can be acquired through values instilled in the
little minds, right now! With this noble thought in mind, our magnanimous
management had taken the initiative to begin the GREEN HOPE programme in
2016-17 a major step towards conservation of environment. Tree plantation at
various venues have conveyed a strong message in the vicinity that the aegis of
environment will extend their support to support the environment. The Earth day
was celebrated with same spirit and gusto. Another pioneering initiative launched
by the magnanimous members of the management was the COMMUNITY
CONNECT PROGRAMME in which clothes donation drive was taken up at an extensive
level which showcased the embodiment of the goodness and
philanthropic zeal of their persona. In today’s time, the child’s mental health is a
primary factor in learning. When children feel secure, they are able to cope with
life’s problems and their emotions. It is a state of well-being in which individual
realizes; his or her own abilities, can cope with normal stresses of life, to work
productively, to contribute to his or her community. The school’s success is
facilitated by factors in students’ lives such as psychological health, supportive
social relationship and positive health behaviors. Keeping the same in mind and
for the promotion of health and wellbeing of the children, the school is associated
with Dr. Jitendra Nagpal, Senior Consultant Psychiatrist, the program director of
Expressions India and Editor in Chief of newly launched ‘Indian Journal of School
Health and well-being. The school also provides the suggested First-aid by the
trained nurse to treat minor ailments and injuries. In case of emergency, students
requiring special medical attention are referred to a nearby hospital. Periodic
health checkup is also taken up to ensure healthy environment for all. Delhi
Public World School, Noida Extension had also successfully conducted the earth
quake mock drill in its premises on 27 th April 2017 in the presence of Mr. Rajendra
Narayan, a resource person from NDRF and the personnel from the fire safety
department, Ecotech – III. The drill was part of mega earth quake mock drill, a
mega event organized by disaster management cell, Noida administration and
conducted simultaneously in 101 schools of Noida. The drill was organized to train
the students to save themselves in case of an earth quake as the region lies in the
earth quake zone IV. Mr. Rajendra Narayan had remarked that the school had
conducted the drill very well and appreciated the efforts of the school authorities.
The school also feels pride to be associated with “YOUWECAN” an initiative by
Yuvraj Singh, an ace national cricketer and National Children’s Science Congress ,
a programme of National Council for science and technology in which children
exhibit their creativity and innovativeness.
At the same time,we feel jubilant to have successfully maintained the tri- polar
relationship amongst the parents, students and teachers since the incorporation
of Delhi Public World School, Noida Extension. A welcoming, supportive,
inherently collaborative culture has always been our focus and pride which was
truly showcased in ENSEMBLE held in July 2017. This culture, combined with our
strong commitment to the holistic and heritage education and support offered by
our ever supporting management makes our school the place of ‘Human
Treasures’ i.e. our parents, teachers and students. The school undoubtedly stands
committed to provide quality education through tested and accepted procedures and
processes that aim at continual improvement of the learners. The school’s
curriculum woven with the strings of Vedic knowledge and culture and a host of
co-curricular activities, aims at building integrated and wholesome personalities,
who are not only equipped with the 21 st century skills, but are also equipped with
strong value system.
Our institute along with the social, economic and democratic ideals, ensures that
every child of this institute becomes an inquisitive leader, diligent researcher,
prolific writer and above all a gift to mankind and a product of virtues like
compassion, courtesy, patience and selflessness. We, as a team, at Delhi Public
World School, Noida Extension have strived to get the right blend of character in
our children. The medley of contributions reflects the latent potencies that is
being precipitated to facilitate our students pinpoint their core strengths and
shape their future road maps.
Generation Next shall raise this country to pinnacle of its glory and we are
relishing our moments in being part of this dream to soon become true!
I will only conclude by saying

“the woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,
and miles to go before I sleep”

Thank you
