STUDENT COUNCIL

The School started operations in April 2015 and in 2017 the House System was formalized.

THE SCHOOL STUDENT COUNCIL 

Students have a voice and a contribution to make to their school. It is important that they be given the opportunity to express their views on issues of concern to them in the school. It is equally important that they are listened to and encouraged to take an active part in promoting the aims and objectives of the school. We at DPSG DEHRADUN, can proudly say that we value and understand the importance of Student leadership and hence provide them with an opportunity to experience leadership and development various skills.

The prefectorial system at DPSG DEHRADUN, is one of a kind which empowers students to develop appropriate skills, attitudes and values. Prefects are chosen through a democratic process involving nominations, campaigning, public speeches and a self-reflection session. Prefects are elected from grade 9 to 12 and are entrusted to be positive and enthusiastic, encouraging and motivating fellow students. Be cooperative, helpful, well-mannered, trustworthy, and responsible. Be respectful toward teachers, their peers, and the school environment. Display leadership qualities like; confidence, initiative, problem-solving skills.
Through the a responsibility, the focus is on maintaining school’s image as a leading institute for 21st century learners.






INVESTITURE CEREMONY

"Young people aren't the leaders of tomorrow. They are the leaders of today and tomorrow" Kathy Calvin(Chief Executive Officer of the United Nations Foundation)

A ceremony of investiture is symbolic of a myriad of different important aspects of human life- growth, maturity, belief, faith, duty and sincerity, to name a few. These solemn aspects gain heightened gravity when it is young blood that is being invested with the power to lead, the power to change, the power to amend, the power to guide and most importantly, the power to learn.

 In the Investiture Ceremony, the Students’ Council is formally invested by the teachers for the academic session of one year. After the badging ceremony, the whole council takes the oath led by the School Principal. Each student of the school is instilled with a similar sense of pride and admiration on hearing their words of motivation.

The school has four houses: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta

In the Senior School there are two School Captains a boy and a girl and each House has a House Prefect and Vice Prefect, for the girls and for the boys.

Their responsibilities include, being role-models, Assisting House Masters, organizing teams for various competitions, encouraging participation and developing a healthy House spirit.

Besides the House Prefects the school also has a Sports Captain (Boys) and a Sports Captain (Girls), an Environmental Secretary and a Discipline Captain.

House System

Houses are the heart of all activities that a school holds and pulsate with a spirit of competition, a sense of belonging and radiating passion and high energy. It was decided to find a nomenclature for the houses that stood for radiation and energy. With Science and Technology being the order of the day the Greek letters that symbolize radiation and emission or transmission of energy became a natural choice.

Thus, the Houses were named after the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta radiation is the term used for the emission of energetic photons

ALPHA House: The First- The Leader

Motto- Upwards and Onwards

Alpha, both as a symbol and term, is used to refer to or describe a variety of things, including the first or most significant occurrence of something. Alpha was the first nuclear ray to be discovered. The word Alpha denotes power and dominance.



BETA House: The Strong and Volatile

Motto- Reach for the stars

Beta is a measure of the volatility. A beta particle, also called beta ray or beta radiation (symbol β), is a high-energy, high-speed electron or positron emitted by the radioactive decay of an atomic nucleus during the process of beta decay.



GAMMA HOUSE: Strong with High Energy

Motto- Stand together, Stand tall

A gamma ray, or gamma radiation (symbol γ or.), is a penetrating electromagnetic radiation arising from the radioactive decay of atomic nuclei. It consists of the shortest wavelength electromagnetic waves and so imparts the highest photon energy.



DELTA HOUSE : The Leader who influences change, new leadership

Motto- make the best better

The energetic electrons that periodically transfer a relatively large amount of energy to an electron by a nearly head-on collision along the path of the primary ionizing particle, causing secondary ionization. These are referred to as delta rays.
