CLUBS AND SOCIETIES

All roundedness is the theme of modern education which recognizes that when the child comes to the school he comes for mental physical, social, spiritual, vocational and holistic development and as such he must be educated and nourished in all of them.

At DPSG,PV we believe the three traditional R's should be replaced by seven R's that is Reading, Writing and Arithmetic (denoting school subjects in the old concept of education), Rights, Responsibilities, Recreation, and Relationships (new four R's in the context of democratic values).


The different clubs at Primary Wing (i.e. Basketball, Football, Gardening, Calligraphy, Personality Development, Cookery, Art, Best Out of Waste, Dramatics, Computers, Music, Dance, Yoga ) are designed keeping in seven R's in mind that are mentioned above and the different essential skills and values.

  1. Creative thinking –thinking of newer ways to solve problems; visualization; thinking of new ideas
  2. Leadership skills –taking initiatives and responsibilities; influencing others in working for a good purpose; setting goals; motivating others to work towards goals; taking accountability.
  3. Logical and analytical thinking – analyzing reasons behind events and situations
  4. Critical thinking – examining concepts, ideas, problems, and issues.
  5. Problem-solving skills – solving problems utilizing various concepts, solutions, etc.
  6. Social skills – collaboration; teamwork; building good relationships with others.
  7. Emotional skills – understanding your strengths and weaknesses; controlling your emotions; empathy for others

Moreover, students also feel a sense of belonging to the school and have higher self-esteem by participating in structured activities. This makes the students feel happier, healthier and involved.

GARDENING

Garden is more than just a growing space-it’s an outdoor classroom. Beyond academics, the garden provides broader life lessons, including contributing to students’ knowledge of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Students in groups, learn how to work as a team by preparing supply list needed for their garden, selecting plants they wish to grow and learning plant care to get better crop. Gardening involves patience, trial and error and working with uncontrollable variables like weather. The students get hands on experience of growing their own food, increasing environmental awareness and enhance their vital experience in problem-solving.

COOKERY

‘The only way to eat well is to know how to cook.’

The students of Cookery Club are imparted knowledge about various cooking techniques and the wide variety of ingredients that are very widely used across the world. They learn to make different dishes without fire. The students not only learn about new recipes but also valuable lessons of safe and hygienic cooking that includes washing hands, using apron and table cover for keeping surroundings clean. Students along with teachers plan special cooking celebration and invite parents to showcase their cooking skills. This not only boosts their enthusiasm but also instills confidence in them.

It’s not about getting extra time to play games, but the creative little minds get engaged in creating their own games. Students get to know about different search browsers and search engines.

ART CLUB

The Art Club allows pupils with a shared interest in art to gather and create art. Through their weekly sessions, the students explore different media such as paint, batik dyes, water colour, oil pastels and mixed media. These art projects provide platforms to enhance their creativity and self-expression, and to gain a greater understanding of concepts and ideas in art. It encourages students to look at colours, shapes, textures and designs differently.

It enables children to learn basic techniques and styles of Calligraphy. They are taught to pay attention on each letter and in what direction the pencil or the marker should be moved. Children are encouraged to create their own font style.

PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT

Your personality speaks for you.... remember, don't be a drop in the ocean...be a portion of the drop.

To groom the personality of students and bring positive changes in them, is the motto of our PD club. We believe that personality can be shaped, and confidence can be built into everyone. It needs expertise and a fine eye to work over the strengths and sensitivity to work over the weaknesses.

Through various fun-filled activities and powerpoint presentations, the students learn how to walk in a correct posture, talk, stand, present themselves and be confident and prepare themselves to face the real world.

Our specialist focus on a well-structured curriculum, personal attention to each student and extra inputs to the student’s week in particular area during Personality development Club.

YOGA AND FITNESS

Breathe Out Stress Breathe In Peace Club

The yoga sessions are carefully structured with various breathing exercises are incorporated to suit different age groups. Plenty of repetition is used for the younger children to reinforce what they have learnt. We largely focus on correct yoga postures, easy breathing techniques, yoga games, relaxation, and meditation.

  • The specialist guides students to use meditation as a ‘Study Tool’
  • Practice simple meditation for a few minutes before you start your studies.
  • Breath is connected to the mind. When the mind is overactive and anxious, the breath is shallow and fast. However, if we breathe in and out, taking long deep breaths, we observe the breath gets slower and longer.
  • The deeper the breath, the higher the intake of oxygen supplied to the brain thus promoting a healthier and more efficient mind.

We work on a morning session, with a structured curriculum under the supervision of a Yoga specialist. Our students at this tender age themselves say Yoga helps to feel…. “Strong”, “Calm”, “Confident”.
