Shri Vivekananda said, “Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.”
As the proud new Principal of DPS Gwalior, a school with a team which strives tirelessly to discover, develop and draw out the hidden talents and the magic that is dormant inside all of its students, I warmly welcome you to our school’s website. We are a school where through academics and co-scholastic pursuits, diligence and resilience are nurtured in every student – making them capable lifelong learners. For the habitants of 21st Century, a 360° development of cognitive, emotional and psychomotor domains is of vital importance and across the school portals, we put in all efforts possible to create a conducive learning environment for future leaders, artists, professionals and entrepreneurs who possess skills, capabilities and aptitude in an array of functional disciplines. The school focuses on adopting a pedagogical style which nurtures cognitive understanding, creativity and positive attitude, thus fostering their physical, social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual health. We also understand that in a healthy body resides a healthy mind and hence aiming at the holistic development of young people, we provide ample opportunities to help all students develop fitness and physical competence. My super competent team of teachers put in all possible efforts to create a synergy in classrooms between values and life skills based education blended with contemporary teaching-learning tools, methodologies and technologies. The testimonies received so far from the parents, establishes that my colleagues have spared no efforts to make the educational experience of our students meaningful and relevant to the needs of the times. We, at DPS Gwalior, dream of nurturing a well-informed and emotionally sound generation that values harmonious relationships and connections with the community. We encourage our students to develop positive interpersonal relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community. I also want to share a mantra with my Dipsites, given by Smt. Indira Gandhi, “The purpose of life is - to believe, to hope, and to strive.” So believe in your cherished goals and strive hard to manifest them – unleash your potential, rising above procrastination and mediocrity. I remember a quote by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam “Behind the parents stands the school, and behind the teacher the home.” In this context, I sincerely invite the parents – our co-nurturers, to come forward freely, with positive, practical suggestions and observations for school and student development. We are together in the quest to bequeath the best to the generation that is our future.
