HERE COMES.……" THE BLOOMING DAY" !

The preparation for the blooming day commences a month prior! So much to look after and take care of….why of course! Because it is the most special day for our school’s INFANT SECTION i.e from Nursery toddlers to the students of std 1st . The coordinators and teachers of this section have to churn their blood and sweat the entire one month to make this prog a success and joyous ONE. The USP of this prog is that it has been formulated exclusively to provide an early age opportunity and helps student feel absolute EASE while on a social platform. The teachers of the section break through all the unexpected challenges as they bring about 100% participation for 290 students during this prog. The day brings immeasurable happiness to the parents and unhindered pride to the teachers….. as they watch the TINY TOTS project enthusiasm and confidence at their tender age. Following the past practice .this year too the kids enjoyed performing on a specific theme “ SEASONS” of the year . The school PECKER BAND and the hula-hoop troupe mesmerized the guests and parent on the special occasion!
There is no greater joy and elation than to see the YOUNG LEARNERS taking cognizance of the present issues and concerns regarding them, their peer circle and wider into the society. The grade teachers of 6-A and 7-B, Sir Nasser and Mam Kesang, collaborated their morning presentation theme and bifurcated under the banner "Cyber- Addiction and its hazards". The presentations were meticulously studied, surveyed and laid out very brilliantly and elaborately for the young masses of the school. The students of these two classes showcased short plays, skits, role plays, message RAP Songs and even went up to build about exquisite traditional toys, used back then when man followed the practice of "Necessity is the mother of invention" and finding strong ground for brain and skill. They FEARLESSLY talked about the possible addiction and fatal results of Cyber games like TIC TOK & PUB-G, which are taking a worrisome toll on our young adolescents and how it is becoming a social menace !!

DPKS at the IIMUN:

Indian model of United nations is a paramount catch word with the student's community across the country and needs no introduction as such.The role of this world class organisation is to simulate the participation of young Indians which is the students , to play active role in bringing about analytical debates, discussions and table solutions for all critical global disputes, whether peace keeping,disarmament or resolving any international issues faced by countries of the world . This is the biggest student leadership organisation of the world that takes confidence and participation to another level on global discussions.The 3rd batch of 13 delegates led by the principal of DPKS flew down to the coastal Mumbai city to be the members of different committees assigned for the Model untited nation's championship conference .This August event was declared open by non other than the Chief guest of the conference, the former Prez of the country his excellency Shri Pranab Mukherjee. DPKS felt proud to be invited to present a beguiling and captivating cultural performance....all the way up from the Pristine Himalayan kingdom 'Ladakh ' as a part of its illustrious opening ceremony. It was a star lit evening with luminaries and dignitaries addressing more than 2000 aspiring students of our the country and international. The apologue of the 1st day : "Huge' much ' is imbibed and ensued....Outside the walls of classrooms and Schools " !

 

 

The honourable United states Ambassador to India: Mr. Kenneth Ian Juster was given an arousing traditional welcome by the Principal staff and students of the school. Mr. Ambassador made brief visits to the sprawling campus after his hi- tea with the school Principal. The girl students held pride in showcasing their mighty KUNGFU skills to the honourable guest.

The DPKS school has already taken its “ EXTRA-mile” two years before, when the campus consciously decided to take the big leap of effortfully making the school a Plastic and JUNK free zone . Thus the Dragonites did their big share of contributing in the times which stares grim on our faces with the frantically and alarming accelerating Environmental degrading issues. The campus of 1000 people consciously and unanimously choose not to have Canteens on campus, encourage 100% the Tiffin culture and admonishes the cruel and insolent littering habits, thus at DPKS it has become a norm to be Eco lovers as wished and propagated by our founding father and supported by Construction Designer at , London, whose entire idea is an ECO friendly world model school. Since, 5th June calls as a global day to dedicate our selves to the cleaning day drive (though a single day will not reap results). The senior students of the school went out on a community cleaning drive into our Shey village and were not very happy to have come across such ALARMING heaps of garbage dumped by the people so CALLOUSLY everywhere! The water SOURCE too were not spared. This drive was in ALLIANCE with the WATERKEEPER project in the HIMALAYAS, which has now been structured into our school ALMANAC under the guidance of Ms. Deachen (the water keeper officer). Thus the crusade against the pollution of environment takes its right place in the regular academics.

 

As a part of the much needed integrated programme of disseminating LIFE SKILLS, CAREER COUNSELING and GUIDANCE DPKS swung into full action to organize the curated student friendly and inspiring programme by the name INSPIRE to ASPIRE turning on to its 4th chapter. The Middle and the Senior students were enthralled to have highly interactive and guided session with the young and dynamic Jigmat Angchuk trainer & Counselor @ Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development. It was indeed a day of much learning wrapped in fun.

 

The students of Std. 7th under the able guidance of Ma’am Jigmet Lamo took the morning presentation to a towering level with their audacious topic on awareness on Child Protection and safety, labelled “good touch! Bad touch!”. It was a pride filled moment for the faculty to see the level of confidence in the students to present such a sensitive topic with elaboration, ease and information. They left no layers unturned or folded to inform their school mates of the very much needed education on child Protection of all kinds (and they being vulnerable) be it school, family or public places. It was a 30 minutes’ presentation rolled into a variant form with enactments, information and debate. The prog concluded with the Principal reinforcing and throwing light on the same in the local context.

It was yet another ministerial visit at the DPKS sprawling campus. During his brief visit to the Leh city, the Education minister of our western province of Maharashtra, Sh. Vinod Tawde invested his day’s itinerary to pay a visit to learn the daily functions of our unique and creative school. He took all the quality time to visit several classes, interact with students and completed an entire campus visit accompanied by the school Principal, Coordinator and the student council. After an elaborate interaction with the school and its authorities, Sh.Twade expressed keenness to organise school exchange progs with his state and promised all possible arrangement for Professional Learning Trainings at his disposal for the DPKS faculty.

The second team of teachers of Druk Padma Karpo during their Annual Training and Exposure tour to almost a sister school to DPKS as both share similar vision and values when it come to love for the Environment. Founded on the concrete ethos of experimental and engaging learning, the Nirmal Bharti stepped forward to facilitate the Training programme on account of the two school heads mutual visits to each other campuses to take back best practices . Our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to Principal Charu…… and her fabulous team of teachers for rendering stepping stone to our teacher.

Three different teams of teachers were facilitated Training's Capsules and Exposure at two very esteemed institutions. The first team of teachers were very fortunate and privileged to have visited the famous Podar World School ,Sama Vadodara and having undergone different facet professional honing and empowering skills under the dynamic leadership of the highly credential holder and several times honoured Mrs. Rekha Shah. We are very grateful and indebted to Mrs. Shah and her ever supporting team of teachers for their efforts, kindness and support to our visiting faculty.
