STUDENT COUNCIL

THE HOUSE SYSTEM AT DPSG

“I would love to live like a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding ‘’- John O’ Donohue

The thought expressed in the quote above would be an apt inspiration to introduce the four houses at DPSG, Palam Vihar after the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati and Kaveri. Students are grouped into these four houses to empower them with the responsibility for their own journey. Within the unity of the house , each student explores their own identity and adds diversity to this association.

Just like each river flows on its unique journey of discovering new realms but become one in their confluence with the ocean, so too, do the members of the four houses, imbibe the distinctive qualities of their houses while they collaborate and compete , upholding the spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie, to move towards the common goal of the school ethos .

“Competition is very good. As long as it is healthy. It is what makes one strive for the better.”

House system plays a vital role in the scheme of education environed by DPSG Palam Vihar. The school has always believed in instilling a spirit of healthy competition among the students by engaging them in different inter-house activities and events. This enables every student to become an integral part of the school and develop a zeal in them to contribute. The house system strives to achieve their goals by providing a secure and positive social environment where each student feels valued and respected. 

The Houses are formed with a purpose of instilling a spirit of teamwork and unity among the students along with providing them a platform to showcase and hone their talent in different fields. House meetings are held on monthly basis where the students come together and discuss about the upcoming events and activities.


At DPSG Palam vihar we have four houses, each named after a river.

GANGA HOUSE

Ganga House draws its distinctive features from the description of “Gaur Varna’ i.e. One who is Light. The house colour of golden yellow, symbolizes purity, piety and a sanguine nature—and all those who belong to this house strive to emulate these traits.

KAVERI HOUSE

Kaveri House, named after the river Kaveri, is much like the “Kaavar” or the auspicious pot in which it was carried down from the heavens, to nourish and revive the parched earth by the sages. Generosity, kindness and care towards all and to the environment, are the guiding principles that drive each house member.

Saraswati House

Saraswati House draws its inspiration from the mythical river Saraswati , which is believed to reveal itself only to those beings who have faith and an altruistic purpose. The students of this house grow into becoming selfless and devoted towards making a positive difference to the world.

Investiture Ceremony

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." -John Quincy Adams

When a student receives the authority to lead others, he/she assumes the responsibility of setting an example. This honour is not about fame and power , instead it demands a sense of belonging and teamwork. It is the perfect opportunity for a student to hone his leadership skills by being approachable, fair and ethical. As the students grow through the year through various responsibilities like leading the events, maintaining school culture and ethos, mentoring their peers and juniors, representing school across all platforms, they learn to become problem solvers, negotiators ,organizers and communicators. The most important lesson of leadership that they acquire is to serve others and to place community before themselves.It signifies the reliance and confidence that the school consigns in the newly invested office bearers. Donning the mantle of accountability, the council members pledge to bestow their duties to the best of their abilities. The elected members were conferred with badges and sashes by the school principal Ms. Dipika Rao in the presence of the parents. HM’s and coordinators also pinned the badges to the elected council. 

PRIMARY WING 


Prefectorial System

The process of selecting the perfect candidates for the position of Prefect begins with the students’ pro forma self-assessment, followed by evaluation by the Class Teacher. Based on their recommendations, students are interviewed and graded. The recommended candidates are then elected by the school students .The elected candidates are shortlisted by a committee for the final round of interviews and approval by the Principal.

Leadership Training

Students selected as Council Members and  Prefects undergo formal training to handle their responsibilities with perfection and fairness. Students develop the skills of management, communication, and problem resolution. Most importantly, they are taught to inculcate principles and display discipline.

As a part of leadership training, students are encouraged to take personal challenges, identify their areas to scaffold, gain understanding of threats and opportunities and emerge as a person who is a more conscious , balanced and collaborative. Students are taken on an outdoor leadership camp where they stay in the nature, engage in team building activities, perform duties, solve problems and learn to survive through both physically and emotionally challenging situations.


The tasks are well arranged and  appropriate to the age level of students with trained faculty to assist them through the process. Each student is expected to record their leadership journey through a journal that includes student introspection and reflection. At the culmination, students share their experiences and personal growth with other students to encourage them to take up responsibility.

Leadership is in tandem with Citizenship Studies at the school where every student is acquainted with the tenets of good citizenship and how they can acquire the right understandings and skill to become one. This curriculum encourages them to connect with themselves, community , nation and world to understand common challenges, engage meaningfully and contribute responsibly
