Overall, I want you to discover the joy of creation by your own hand. The possibility of creation from paper is infinite.    Akira Yoshizawa
At DPS, Jaipur we give ample opportunities to our students to discover the joy of creation by their own hands. ‘Artistic Creations: Origami Craft’ activity was organised on 25 October 2019 for Class III. The children were provided with origami paper and it was fascinating to see how that one square of paper turned into a toy or a decoration piece. It was like magic to them. Without any glue or scissors their hands created amazing things. No fun activity that is organised in our school is without the inherent educational benefits. Origami too helps in better eye hand co-ordination. It develops sequencing skills, spatial skills, patience and attention skills in the children. 

    A photography competition, “Parallax” was held at Sr Sec St. Xaviers  School Jaipur on 24 October 2019 in which students of Delhi Public School Jaipur participated wholeheartedly. They gave their pictures for various categories. Paridhi Tholia of XC bagged the best picture in portrait category and also special jury award. XPC is an annual event which takes place in the school campus and managed by students only. A member of the same club, Manan took us on the school tour too and explained in detail about the various places. 

      Our Dipsites once again made us proud as Nehanshu Bugaliya of grade IX and Falguni Rathore of grade XII Humanities bagged the First position in an Essay Writing Competition organised by the Law Awareness Society, Jaipur. The competition was conducted across the schools of Jaipur and Nehanshu Bugaliya bagged two Trophies as he emerged as the overall winner of the competition leaving behind all the students from classes VIII to XII.
      Indeed a meritorious feat!
        “Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.”
        It is the children of today who will define the nature of the society of tomorrow through their social actions.

        students of Nursery –II on Friday, October 18, 2019.

        Save Earth and Save Water.
        The students conveyed their messages with overwhelming enthusiasm through dialogues, acting, songs, dance 
        and rhymes. This helped children gain confidence, develop linguistic skills, teamwork and coordination. The 
        young Dipsites also learnt that it is important to stand up for a cause in life and in grooming the students as 
        socially responsible citizens when they grow up. 
        All the participants were appreciated for their mesmerizing performance. They were also awarded with 
        beautiful badges delivering the message of Save Mother Nature.

             To commemorate the 150 birth anniversary of Gandhiji an exhibition ‘Mohan to Mahatma’ was organised by the students of the Primary Wing of DPS, Jaipur on Saturday, 12 October 2019. The exhibition was inaugurated by the Principal Ms. Sangeeta Kain who was accompanied by the Headmistress Ms. Aradhana Kaul, staff members and parents. It started with the ‘Sarva Dharma Prarthana’ sung by the school choir. As the guests proceeded to the venue, Gandhiji’s favourite bhajans sung by the choir filled the air.
            The exhibition provided the students of classes III to V a large platform to showcase their talent. The exhibition was the culmination of the children’s work over the course of the last few weeks. It offered an insight into the Mahatma’s life. Each piece on display was special as it was made by the children themselves and in the process of preparing for the exhibition the students researched and learnt a lot about our beloved Bapu.
            In addition to the exhibition the children also presented Gandhiji’s life journey from Mohan to Mahatma through short enactments. Various milestones of his life were beautifully depicted by the children, enthralling the audience with their acting skills. A beautiful Kathak performance on his favourite bhajan ‘ Vaishnav Jan To Tene Kahiye’ had the audience spellbound.
            Decorative diyas, wall hangings and newspaper bags made by the students in the ‘Best out of Waste’ activity were also on display and for sale in the exhibition. To instil in children a charitable instinct, the proceeds from the sale will go to the Children’s Home a decision unanimously taken by our children who love to share and care.
            ‘Meraki - An Art Exhibition’ was also organised on this occasion for we strongly believe that art encourages children to think, develop skills and confidence.
            The enthusiasm and skill clubbed with in depth knowledge was commendable . With an endeavour to promote scientific attitude among students the exhibition was one of its kind. School Director Mr K.B. Kain also visited the exhibition and appreciated the efforts of the students.

              Learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge and knowledge makes us great.

                  The meaning of Gandhiji’s life is inexhaustible. He was a unique leader. His uniqueness sprang from his compassion for human beings and his ceaseless striving for truth. The story of this great man needs to be told, especially to our young generation in countless ways.

                  Gandhiji’s legacy lives on over 71 years after his death. His universal teachings continue to inspire people around the world. To the Indian people, Gandhi gave a nation. To the world, he gave Satyagraha. His teachings of non- violence and truthfulness are very relevant even today and are needed to make the world a peaceful and wonderful place to live in.

                    The young children of today are the torch bearers of the Gandhian thoughts and on their shoulders lies the responsibility of carrying the ideas of Bapu forward.
                    The young Dipsites paid a befitting tribute to the Father of the Nation on his 150th Birth Anniversary as they carried out a cleanliness campaign in the school.
                    A Drawing and Colouring Competition 'Clean School, Green School' for Grades III to V and ' India of My Dreams' for Grades VI to VIII was organized for the students of Grades III to VIII of DPS Jaipur on 3 October 2019.

                    The dirt and dust did not deter their spirits and they took part in the cleanliness drive enthusiastically.
                    Ingraining the right values at the right age today will indeed have our young DIPSITES blossom into Perfect World Citizens of Tomorrow.
