STUDENT COUNCIL

THE HOUSE SYSTEM AT DPSG

AlI would love to live like a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding - John 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.

Prefectorial System

E-voting at DPSG

The process of electronic voting to form the prefectorial board took place on 13th May, 2022 in the school premises. The democratic principle of universal franchise and secret ballot received a new impetus with the classrooms as polling booths and educators as polling officers. The student voters from Grades VI to XII cast their votes digitally to elect the members of the student council. The presentation of manifestos and campaigning by the contestants helped students gain knowledge about the election process. This helped to inculcate the leadership qualities in the ones contesting the elections and to make them responsible human beings. The candidates had a great opportunity to learn that authority and responsibility are two sides of the same coin.The members of the student community exercised their decision-making skills to elect the School Captain, the Sports Captain, the Cultural Captain, the school Prefect, the Wing Prefect, the House Captain and the class Prefect. This exercise was useful in learning about the protocols to be followed by the candidates as well as the voters. The procedure encouraged the participation and involvement of everyone. The students were brimming with excitement and are eagerly waiting for the results to be announced. The members of the teaching community also exercised their powers of discretion and enthusiastically cast their votes.

Leadership Training

The Student Council Members from all the DPSG Schools met at the picturesque campus of Sela Qui International School to participate in the Student Council Leadership Training Programme. The programme was designed with a view to hone up their leadership skills through collaborative activities on communication, team building and conflict resolution. The programme was conducted in two batches from 14th June to 22nd June and was attended by School Heads, designated members of School Academic Council and Student Council Members. Following the protocol, the members of the prefectorial board of DPSG, Palam Vihar reached the premises in two batches and learnt all about critical real-world life and management level skills. Camp day at Dwara jungle required the council members to perform multiple adventurous and thrilling activities which involved critical thinking, teamwork and coordination. The blindfold activity and chess activity invigorated the members where active listening, communication and coordination came to the fore. The campers learnt how to articulate their thoughts, ideas, and choices to immerse themselves in camp activities. The pipes and marble activity and the toxic river crossing game fostered a sense of teamwork. These tasks brought out brought about a pure feeling of togetherness. The session on conflict resolution exposed the students to diverse perspectives, ideologies, and sentiments. The programme showcased the ability to adapt, understand other opinions, and appreciate priorities other than one’s own. This summer leadership camp helped the student leaders to analyse and categorize themselves as different types of leaders and gain a proper understanding about how to sort out the conflicts and challenges in a better way. The enthusiastic and eager participants could emerge out of their comfort zones and were able to develop emotional intelligence.

This beneficial and fruitful session has empowered student leaders to be role model for their peers.

Saumya Dubey - School Captain - Girls XII D

Hello everybody! I'm Saumya Dubey, School Captain DPSG Palam Vihar and I'm extremely elated to have been given this opportunity of serving the school. First and foremost, I'd like to thank each person who rooted for me and trusted me for the position of being their leader. I've been a consistent student always and I feel honoured that it got recognised by such impeccable mentors. School is a place where we learn the most, grow the most, create the most memories and above all identify ourselves as individuals who are more than just students. To have been given the platform to explore and enhance my abilities, I would like to focus on not only myself, but also help other students as well in doing the same because it's the students who make the school. While always being empathetic, I'd like to be as helpful as possible towards my community. I shall try my best to be someone my fellow mates would want to look up to. I promise to uphold my responsibility with sheet dedication and be a 'servant leader' at all times.

Thankyou.



ANSH SINGH - SCHOOL CAPTAIN - BOYS XII D

I shall strive to be a participative captain and maintain the discipline and uphold the vision of the school.

Neksha Rana Head School Prefect Class XII E
I am Neksha Rana of grade 12 and am the Head school prefect. I feel honoured to be a part of the council. It gives me a great opportunity to develop my qualities of leadership, integrity, team building, with an admirable mentor to always direct me through numerous patches of this experience. This post motivates me to put additional efforts outside of the academic bubble and constant skill upgradation. Leadership isn’t just about being on an authoritative podium, rather it’s about creating change in the lives of those individuals I have been held accountable for i.e., the entire prefectorial team. I might say how delighted I felt after being elected but what’s significant is how I utilise my privilege in assisting the ones in need. My responsibilities are not confined to the school's representation alone but it’s also about the success of students that I feel liable for.The real reason why the student council exists is to teach us how to be more compassionate towards others, maintaining composure in the times of crisis, and effective management, juggling the roles of both a student as well as a leader.

I have been a part of the student council for the past 3 sessions and have seen myself grow into a completely new and better individual. From being confident to accepting mistakes and learning from them, it has been quite a journey. I believe this session is all about implementation of my previous learnings, passing them onto my juniors, cherishing my most authentic self and being accountable for my actions with respect to the position I have been honoured with. I hope to withstand all of this throughout my tenure as the head school prefect and beyond.
