HOUSE SYSTEM

The School House System forms the bedrock of peer learning and develops the students towards taking ownership of the house/school, promoting collaborative competition and foster healthy relationships across wings: Junior, Secondary and Senior Secondary. It provides students opportunity to move beyond the confines of their classrooms and cohorts into wider student community spanning across grades and age groups and subject streams. The House System fosters sociability, compassion, team work and healthy competition, giving students a sense of belonging to the school community. DPSGI has four Houses named after the holy rivers of India that are symbol of life and motivation.
