An enlightening session with Shri Kirit Bhaiji

It was indeed a proud moment today at DPSIS, where we were blessed by the presence of Shri Kirit Bhaiji. An enthralling one hour talk, on 'Achieving Excellence in Education' left the audience spellbound and in awe of Bhaiji's  repository of knowledge. The lecture was interspersed with good humour and his lucid delivery went well with the children.

Commenting on the intriguing and enthusiastic responses of little DIPSITES on education he wisely said : "Education is not necessarily academic in nature. It is all encompassing of the values and morals in life. Values and morals is what makes a man. Life becomes successful when we search for the truth, imbibe it and also utilize to the fullest the limited money and time that we have. We should always have the winning streak in us or else we will not be successful."
The catch phrase of the session was "time flies". How true and aptly put by Bhaiji that 'When time is concerned everybody is poor'.

Bhaiji was highly appreciative of the standard set by DPSIS in achieving excellence. In the end, the floor was open to the children for Q & A session. Bhaiji was very much impressed by the questions posed to him and in fact he admitted  that his ambition was to become a Pilot which he felt he would achieve one day. A most memorable hour spent which needless to say is not sufficient when listening to such an eminent speaker.

The staff, students and parents awaited his arrival for unfurling of our National flag followed by presentations by the school choir. The Republic Day celebrations included the display of Art & Social Studies projects by the Singapore Dipsites in the entire school campus followed by kite flying by the students & parents. The school skies gave an enthralling look with numerous multi-coloured kites. Mr. Salman Khurshid addressed the gathering with congratulations to the parents for having chosen DPS for their wards.

Mr. Salman Khurshid, an alumni of DPS had been minister of state for external affairs in the Government of India. He has been the member of DPS society since 1985 and has had a coveted stint as President of DPS Society as well. As grandson of Dr. Zakir Hussain, the late President of India and son of Mr. Khursheed Alam Khan, the former Governor of Karnataka, Mr. Salman Khurshid is a befitting heir and a role model to all DIPSITES!

DPSIS was privileged to have his presence on 26 January 2008.

 
 

Career Fair

A first of its kind Career Fair was organised in DPSIS on May 30th, 2008 on the school's premises itself. The concept, which was well appreciated by the students of class 9, 10, 11 and 12, is a step in the right direction so that DIPSITES at Singapore achieve their aspirations through awareness at right time during their careers. Professionals from various spheres of life and business lent their valuable presence to the event. To name a few, Mr. Nirmal Gopalan from one of Singapore's biggest banks - HSBC, told the students that there was more to life than becoming a doctor or an engineer and that "if they had an inclination, there was a career to be had". Mr. Varun Vishwanath - a hseadhunter, stressed that grades wasn't the only thing that mattered in life, all-round aptitude was what recruiters looked for. Mr. Nagita and Ms. Shareena of SATZONE provided counseling for how to  apply for the Student's Aptitude Test, and what universities and colleges in the United States looked for in their applicants. The students heard first hand about how co-curricular activities, social work, a varied set of interests were as, and sometimes even more important than academic qualifications. The event was brightened up by Varun Venkit, a percussionist with a leading rock band in India - Agni. Varun, all of 22 years old, had followed his heart and taken up percussion as a career. A passionate young man, he had his own vision for his art, which he sought to use not just as a form of entertainment but also as a form of therapy.

To add further colour to the event, students dressed up as professionals from the sphere of their choice, and addressed the class on why they were choosing the career that they wanted, their goals and the challenges that awaited them.

A very well organised interactive event, the career fair turned out to be popular with both the participating students as well as the professionals, and there was no doubt that this would become a permanent fixture of the DPSIS calendar for years to come.

 
 
Falguni Pathak's Visit

8th September 2006 was an unforgettable day as the Dandiya Queen, Falguni Pathak, visited our school. She was greeted not only by our reception, but also by a group of young, eager children. She was warmly welcomed with a standing ovation.

Our school chairman, Mr. C.P. Kabra, graced her presence with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. The DPS tradition of lighting a lamp was then carried out. There was the usual excitement coupled with the click and flashes of cameras; with the crowd impatient to get autographs.

The cultural show commenced with the Garba dance. Our little Dipsites spiritedly danced on the stage. The stage looked like a riot of colours, with the wonderful Ghagra-Cholies of the young girls and the beautiful backdrop made of shades of pink and purple. The dance was accompanied by Mr. Amit's tabla beats and Mrs. Patralekha's dandiya beats.

This was followed by a dance, performed by a score of teachers and some parents. The programme ended at about 2 o'clock with Mr. Kabra presenting Miss Pathak with a token of appreciation.

 
 
Mr. Sathi Kanan Visit

Mr. Sathi Kannan, who is currently working as Senior Manager with Emerson Process Management, gave an illuminating lecture to students of Class VII & VIII . He talked about the application of Maths in everyday life.

 
 
Sonu Nigam Visits Our School

On the morning of 8th April 2005, our school's auditorium was chock-a-block with students and parents, who had assembled to meet Sonu Nigam, one of the most popular exponents of popular Hindi music. A versatile artist who effortlessly dons the mantles of a playback singer, an actor and a pop singer, Sonu Nigam's success saga has been scripted with sheer grit and determination. Today he is a youth icon, a figure whom the Generation Next can readily identify with as a representative image of cultural identity and as a symbol of change.

Our students had an opportunity to interact with him in an exclusive session. It was a brief meeting, yet the talented artist effortlessly established a warm rapport with his young audience. His mock-serious efforts to discipline the kindergartners, an excited group in the front row, finally yielded result when he sang his ever popular 'Main Hoon Na' and the auditorium echoed with the refrain as the audience spontaneously sang along in widely varying pitches and notes.

In his speech he acknowledged the overriding importance of academic excellence and urged his audience to work hard in the pursuit of their dreams. It was an inspiring meeting that helped the students appreciate the value of perseverance and determined effort as the building blocks of success in any endeavour.
