Clubs And Society

Clubs And Societies

We, at Delhi Public School Ghaziabad, lay emphasis upon the holistic development of children by fostering a synergic blend between scholastic and co-scholastic activities, which find a rightful place in the curriculum. The school curriculum emphasizes acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking and problem solving abilities for all students. We believe that every learner is unique and it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and prepare him or her for life.
Clubs and Societies, at DPSG, are tailored to meet every student’s need for creative self-expression and development of problem solving abilities. The work involved in various clubs functioning at various levels is productive, educative and socially useful.  Apart from strengthening fine motor skills, the club activities encourage students to think independently and drive their learning. An array of club activities set the stage for promoting self-management skills, which turn the young learners into confident and creative individuals. 

OBJECTIVES:

Clubs and Societies are an integral part of the learning process in the school and aims to make the students competent and self- reliant along with nurturing in them favourable work values and habits. 
We wish to develop in our students, through the years they spend in our school, the skills, competencies, values and attributes that will help them become thinking, caring, contributing and responsible members of our society.
The significance of allied curricular domains while charting a trajectory for the holistic development of students cannot be over emphasized. As we find ourselves in the process of a paradigm shift, the role of Clubs and Societies is of paramount importance for a number of reasons: 
To foster intellectual curiosity and generosity of spirit, self – belief, confidence, a sense of responsibility and a caring and tolerant outlook. To encourage all pupils to participate in a wide range of activities, developing an all-round approach to their education and a life-long love of learning. To support parents in raising well-rounded, ambitious and happy children who play a positive role in society, develop a sense of duty and service and are well prepared for lives in an ever changing world. To hone the verbal and non-verbal communication, networking and teambuilding skills of the students. To foster creative thinking among students.

Cooking undeniably is one of the most important skills a student can ever learn and share. Once someone has that knowledge, that's it - they're set for life.

When you cook together, students feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. They feel responsible, because you trust them with an important task.

The young minds are most receptive to new ideas and need to be trained and made aware of certain basic principles that would not only save their lives but also being future citizens, they play an important role towards nation building . Therefore, it is important to address disaster preparedness through fun activities in the school and promote the “culture of safety & preparedness” at a young age.
