The second Proficiency Award and Scholar Badge Ceremony for the academic session 2018- 19 was held at DPS Sector 84 across three days, 15th to 17th May 2019. A moment like this, when one is recognized for the hard work they have put through the year, just makes the children strive for more. It was indeed a day of proud children and prouder parents. The awards were for various categories- All Rounder, Out Standing Performance, Proficiency in different subjects indicating an A1 level, Scholar Badge indicating 80% and above in overall aggregate, appreciating Full Attendance and last but not the least- The Rising Star to encourage the ones who had made a tremendous improvement in their grades through the year. This day was not just to recognize the ones who have done well, but also to motivate others to be on this platform in the current academic year. Kudos to all the award holders!
A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take.
The students of Grades VI A and B conducted a special assembly on the occasion of Mothers Day. After sharing the thought of the day and the important news headlines, two beautiful poems were recited to praise the endless work that mothers do. To drive home the point that we can’t do without mothers, the children put up a short thought provoking skit where one got to realize how mothers are the back bone of the homes. To further appreciate them, the students sang a beautiful song on mothers. And it was not just the children who got a message on the importance of mothers; the school coordinator and headmistress addressed the teachers and advised them to spend time with their mothers and to respect the fact that they are now old. The assembly indeed got everyone thinking on what would the world be like if there were no mothers.
God could not be everywhere, that’s why he created mothers!
The students of DPS, Sec-84, took part in Raahgiri on the 5th of May, 2019. They put up a heart wrenching dance performance based on the theme, save the girl child. The audience were left spell bound and misty eyed after the performance. Other than that, we also organized a painting event for children which was a huge hit.
DPS Sector 84, Gurugram celebrated Founder’s Day on 2nd May 2019. This day is the birthday of Shri. Ajay Paul Lakhanpal, who is the guiding light and source of inspiration for the school. Shri Ajay Paul Lakhanpal is the father of Mr. Aditya Paul Lakhanpal, the Vice Pro Chairman of DPS, 84. He was a visionary who believed that that education is the key to success. With that idea in mind, the girls of grade V presented a graceful dance on ‘Save the Girl Child’. It was a beautifully choreographed dance which was very thought provoking. The school choir presented a melodious song based on how we are all different and yet the same. It indeed was a day where the children got something to think about that was based on the philosophy of the Founder.
The vision of DPS 84 is ‘Service Before Self’ and with that philosophy in mind, the students participated in the New Gurugram Raahgiri Day organized on 21st April 2019. To spread the message of clean rivers, the students of grades VIII and IX staged a Nukkad Natak that spoke about the state of the rivers in India and the importance of doing something about it. They also did an awareness drive on Green Earth through slogans and posters. Teachers, students and their parents participated in large numbers to spread the message. The audience, who was impressed to see the fervor and enthusiasm, applauded the group. The school also gave away marigold plants in coconut shells to increase awareness of bio- degradable things.
DPS Sector 84 Gurugram opened its doors to another session on 4th April 2019. The air was abuzz with mixed emotions- the old students happy on being back and the new ones being apprehensive on what the day had in store of them. But like always it didn’t take too long for all the students- from Nursery to Grade IX to settle down among friends. The teachers had planned first day activities that kept the students engaged and helped foster bonds with one another. The day ended with happy faces and an eagerness to be back the next day.
