“Keep your mind open to change all the time. Welcome it. Court it, it is only by examining and re-examining your opinions and ideas that you can progress” Dale Carnegie’s words influenced me most of the time and thus, the message that follows reflects the vicissitudes that took place in the school over a decennium and adaption to incipient challenges that transformed the institution to this status.
As the year 2019 approached, DPS Mahendra Hills has undergone tremendous change, a process of great upheaval and great possibility. In just a few short years we have been witnessing the dawn of information age, the birth of incipient administrative block at Nacharam, the rush to computerization, the advent of an incipient branch at Nadergul, and not just the least of these transmutations but of all, the human cognations revolution.
No longer school teaching and learning got limited to classrooms but got extended even after the school to the cloud-based support system. Prelude of a constant obsession for quality amelioration of edifying faculty, management discovered several denotes to verify potentials and accreditations with international benchmarks. Engendering an intersection between cognizance, adeptness and optate had been the perpetual effort of the Management. Cognizance is a theoretical paradigm, the “what to do and why’’, adeptness is the ‘’how to do’’ and optate is ‘’want to do’’ were induced as habits for making an efficacious teacher. Digital curriculum, digital edification plans have become an integral part of a systematic approach to teaching-learning. Exchange programs with DPS Society and periodical training of faculty, periodical internal and external audits of classroom learning, analysis of performance after every term is enhancing the transactions in the classroom to an immensely colossal extent.
Assiduous counseling sessions, challenging intellectual, physical and convivial strengths of students has become an endeavor to minimize nonessential and insalubrious diversions. Instruments of measurement to realize the illimitable potential within each child and avail lead an ecstatic, conscious, purposeful, virtuous and prosperous life has been another effort. No longer can so much of ingenuity go scandalously untapped is the intention of management and keeping pace with this ideology, each student’s latent aptitude is challenged, and given opportunities abounding to attest. The differentness of a child and building self- esteem is the focus. Conventional Sports and selective Academies working in the school, annual health audits are preparing robust citizens for future Olympics.
We are what we perpetually do excellence then is not an act, but a habit verbalizes, Aristotle. I being Academic Director and a part of the family of DPS Mahendra Hills always endeavor to achieve excellence and become spark plugs to the ingenuity of students. We give thought-eliciting prompts to trigger critical thinking and hone inscribing skills and lead each individual to vie for own self to consummate their desire. Students have attempted to venture into the realm of expressing creatively in a simple but imaginative way. Savour the magazine as a precious stimulation of your wards’ incipient perspective to life. Don’t go by its volume and keep it aside, but relish each child who accumulated their wits to cerebrate big, cerebrate expeditiously, think ahead as ingeniousness is no one’s monopoly.
