Education is about how one generation communicates with the next. It is how we prepare, inform, counsel and inspire the young generation.
The questions of education belong not just to teachers, parents and students but to all of us: Who are being educated and how? To what extend? What values are being conveyed in the educational process? What skills? What domains of knowledge? What talents are being nurtured? What abilities ignored or suppressed? Are we rewarding the rit and effort or simply promoting the achievers only?
Change is constant. But it doesn’t happen on its own. A student in a school needs more than just “opportunity” to succeed in a challenging environment; he or she needs proper care, the intellectual tools and social skills that grant the ability to learn. That is what we aim to provide to our students: the ability to pick up any book, open any newspaper, browse any website, listen to any lecture and find a point of entry. A student who knows “how to begin” can survive on any campus and succeed in any environment. We believe every short story that students read, every historical event they study, every step forward they take in math and science is an opportunity to examine and enhance their own self-awareness and their understanding of human behaviour.
At DPS, we believe that the more each of us think of ourselves as lifelong learners and teachers with the constant opportunity to make the most of ourselves and do the best by others, the sooner we will be able to come together as a community to ensure the greatest possible future for all young people.
Let’s not forget that the nation is always built by disciplined, cultured, devoted and educated individuals, with full faith in themselves and the nation. This faith and discipline is concentrated on character building and developing a sense of cross-cultural tolerance, co-operation and harmony.
I give all my blessings to the DPS, to the staff, students, parents and all those associated with this Institution. I pray that God, in His divine benevolence, continues to lead and guide this prestigious Institution for generations to come.
