Young people grow and learn through experiences. It is these experiences which lay the foundation of our behavior and guide us to values. As values are seen growing from students’ experiences, we would expect that these could be altered as experiences accumulate and change. We at DPPS Safdarjung Enclave, therefore encourage children to make informed choices and to make such choices freely as well. We encourage children to consider what is it that they prize and cherish, give them plenty of opportunities to affirm their choices, encourage them to act, behave and live in accordance with their choices. It is with this attitude and philosophy that we intend to bring up every child at DPPS Safdarjung Enclave so that he/she is prepared to face the challenges of a rapidly changing world. We aspire to bring up a new generation of thought leaders who in turn will change the social norms and set new benchmarks for a better society tomorrow. We envisage an education system where all stakeholders-the Management, Parents, Students as well as Educators play a collective and significant role to bring about a positive change in the upbringing and nurturing of every child. Our team of highly qualified, experienced and most importantly, passionate educators put us in a unique and unmatched position to help us achieve our goals year after year. At DPPS Safdarjung Enclave, it is our endeavor to delve deeper into the true purpose of education by giving our students opportunities and an environment that is positive, inspiring, challenging and stimulating. We want each one of our students to follow their bliss, blaze new trails and open new doors. We hope to create an atmosphere of reverence for education and a healthy environment where work, sports and co-curricular activities will mould our students and spur them on to become the brightest and the best. It is only when educators, students, parents and other members of the community work in partnership that a child can grow into an adult who displays sensitivity, integrity, good citizenship and respect for human diversity. I have realized that with little hard work, sound attention from parents and appropriate guidance from educators make the process of learning easier, acceptable, stress-free and enjoyable.
In this venture, we are as responsible towards our students as the parents are towards their wards. Our joint effort will bear fruit. Let us together put our best foot forward! Come, join us in our quest to develop learners who will contribute in significant ways to a challenging future. I invite all our students and parents for an eventful odyssey of knowledge and learning and look forward to your valuable contribution in making a difference to our society and our nation.
