It was a day of mixed reactions and emotions. The students promised the residents of the old age home that they will return soon, with stories and the previous times in mind. Also, they promised to attend the hundredth birthday of the 81-year old gentleman there. -Nandini Jiva Class XI-H

Mr Shah gave his valuable insights on the following areas a) Parallel economy b)inflation c)fiscal deficit d)velocity of money transactions in the unorganised sector. He emphasized on removal of “JUGAAD” which made money easily accessible to all those who desperately needed it . He emphasized on the wish list of the government to eradicate black money, black income, black wealth which would kill terrorist activities and prevent the erosion of unaccounted income thereby promoting cashless economy.
A strong message left behind by him, was to make a generous contribution towards Prime Minister’s Gareeb Kalyan Yojna to lead a stress free and simple life. With each and every transaction being accounted for, he hopes that it will bring an end to hoarding and making an investment in gold and real estate accountable. People should adhere to the guidelines given by the – IDS which emphasizes on mandatory disclosure of income from all sources failing which they would fall prey to the Money Laundering Act ,Benami Act ,Indian Penal Code Act.
It was an interactive session and Mr Shah was happy that he could put the teachers/common man's apprehension related to demonetisation to rest.

Studies - is an exhibit of a body of work done by the members, both students and teachers, of DPS-Bopal, accompanied by the works of the faculty – Shri Nagjibhai Prajapati, during a three-day workshop organised at DPS-Bopal campus from 17 to 19 November 2016.
The exhibition was inaugurated today by Shri Nagjibhai Prajapati. Ms Vandna Joshi, the Senior Vice Principal, Ms Monita Dash, the Incharge Senior Secondary, members of the art and craft department, students and parents of DPS-Bopal graced the inauguration.
A total of 41 paintings were displayed made by 31 students, 7 teachers and Shri Nagjibhai Prajapati. The paintings included still-life and landscape made during the three day workshop.
This workshop was a small endeavor to learn the nuances of fine art of water and acrylic painting through still life and landscape. For me, the unpredictability and uncontrollable nature of watercolor make it the most exciting and expressive medium of all. Traditionally, watercolor is employed only in thin, transparent washes of pigment. The opportunity to meander somewhere between mastery and complete lack of control during the course of a painting makes it one of the most engaging mediums. Some beautiful, delicate paintings came from this school of thought. Contemporary watercolor, however, allows for much greater freedom of technique and material.
A first of its kind experience and exposure there were moments when students felt awkward, clumsy and incapable. But in spite of the difficulties, the learning process, enhanced by the constant guidance and support of the teachers and the visiting faculty evoked them to overcome all discomfort and be able to put up this exhibition.
Delhi Public School, Bopal had organised a one-day excursion to a resort on the banks of River Sabarmati popularly known as Tirupati-Rushivan on 26 November 2016. 190 students of Grade 12 were accompanied by 15 teachers in a trip which proved to be an unforgettable experience.

We all know how great it feels to receive gifts. However, the joy of getting is short-lived. Our lives are richer when we share, and that great inner joy comes from helping others to better their lives. Giving provides an intrinsic reward that’s far more valuable than the gift. This message was subtly infused in grade 1, 2 and 3 students through the donation activity during the Joy of Giving Week from 25th to 27th October’16. To reap the joy of sharing the overly compassionate lot wholeheartedly donated hygiene products like shampoos, bathing soap, washing soap, oil and body cream etc with the joy truly shining on their faces. The realistic moments of sharing a bright smile, laughter, tears of joy and gratitude were experienced when the collected toiletries were handed over to the needy at the Visamo Kids Foundation by the students on the 11th Novemeber’16. These children also made and shared beautiful Happy Children’s Day cards with the inmates of the foundation and celebrated the occasion with them by spending some quality time there. The activity helped sensitize them towards the needs of their less privileged peers and made them realize that true giving comes from the heart, with no expectation of reciprocation and that the power of giving is manifested in the kindness and generosity that you bestow on someone else.

Students interested in exploring an overseas academic experience, especially a degree program abroad, are often inundated with information, most of which lacks clarity or reliability. In addition, the application process is complicated and students are left to navigate the process without much help. DPS, Bopal arranged a session for ISC students with the U.S. University delegates to update themselves about various upcoming courses in universities abroad and get their queries answered pertaining to admissions, scholarships, visa guidance and amazing study abroad options.

After the presentation, a one to one session was held on their individual stalls by each representative of the universities and where all the queries of the students were answered.
The session was very interactive and informative.
Saumya Patel ,Grade XI B attended the summer school program ayt Columbia university.She gained knowledge of Biology from what replicating to DNA enzyme mapping to holistic medication to gene alteration, both in practical and theory.
Each day she had two classes, a lecture class and a lab class. The classes were very challenging and very informative.
What was exceptionally amazing about the summer course at Columbia was its midday activities and extracurricular activities. Midday activities include chess, jazz, midday lectures (on how to apply to universities, net surfing, how to write a perfect essay, how to gain credits, etc.) and challenge accepted ( a dare game including knowledge). Extracurricular activities included community outreach program like clothing closet (donating clothes, city meals on wheels (donating food) and reading stories to young orphans.
Being amongst the youngest students of the class and the only Indian, she faced many difficulties during the first week as almost everybody had some knowledge about the topics that they were being taught of. But as time passed she made friends who helped her with her difficulties.
Incidentally her best friend at Columbia University was her Professors who were so friendly and helpful that she felt as if they were her classmates and not mentors.
The diversity of the class was huge. Her classmates hailed from countries like Chile, Jordan, China, Japan, Taiwan, England, Australia, Russia and Morocco. Everyone had a different way of thinking and displaying work, that made her understand the study pattern of others. While working on group projects they exchanged ideas and always tried that our group gets the best presentation honour. During free time, classmates would share knowledge about our country and its culture. Her friends told her that they wanted to visit India and specifically the Taj Mahal, Felt really proud of being an Indian.
Shapes are also symbols. Not surprisingly, the early recognition of shapes relates to a child's ability to read symbols otherwise know as letters. Capital letters are made mostly of circles (or parts of circles) and lines. The first step in understanding letters is the ability to know the difference between a circle and a square or rectangle. It is most important for him/her to get the "feel" of the shapes in his/her hand before it is perfectly represented on paper. This shape drawing will naturally lead to writing letters.

He rightly quoted Dalai Lama , “ Care and compassion are necessities not luxuries without them the society cannot survive. “His speech was followed up by a video on the values of care and compassion. The students of our school in a very creative manner tried to make us understand that care and compassion is the only way in which we can pay back to the society . They promoted the idea of adoption to be the new standard of living. The special assembly ended with Principal sir’s view about how we want to do something for the society. He advised the young minds to inculcate virtues of care and compassion in one’s life. He also emphasized that it’s really important to respect everyone’s view. He threw light on how living in the present, is the key for mindfulness.

"Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need and the remains can be served to the needy".
Inculcating these values in children and being a helping aid to the needy, DPS comes with its unique campaign of pouring a handful of gain in sacks.
An initiative DPS student witnesses each year and this year also the campaign has been successfully started with compassion and love for the needy of our nation.
A handful of grain which many of us today comfortably ignore, could create a lot of difference in the lives of millions encompassed by poverty and deprivation.
Children made a difference by pouring. Way more than a fistful of grain with all different items like rice, wheat, lentils, and many more cereals and pulses .There was an air of excitement seen in each every volunteer to help them fill up the sacks.
Although any amount is not enough for such huge population but a handful of help also makes a big difference in life of poor. Power of small could not have been expressed better.

Teachers understood how the students could use the dictionary right from an early age.

It talked about how the stories in literature could be brought to life with the correct expressions and the non-verbal cues. It gave an opportunity to the teachers to show their oratory skills. Moreover, it was not a serious one-sided discussion about teaching English. It was and a highly refreshing experience for the teachers attending it. The entire workshop proved to be very effective since it helped to enhance the knowledge for English language and its effective teaching. It was a very useful session for updating one’s knowledge and recalling things used occasionally.

Commencing with a pious remembrance to the deities, the event progressed to a brief recapitulation of Baazigar conducted in the yesteryears. Mr. Adeel Sheikh, Head of Commerce Dept., who expounded on this odyssey; was preceded by an inspiring keynote by Mr. Surendra PSachdeva, the Principal.

Candidates had to brainstorm within a given time frame, and come up with unique way to introduce the product in the market. This event was a conflagration of distinctive ideas in the form of melodious jingles, sui generis role plays, and enlightening posters.
The event then proceeded to the final test of business insight, the Business Quiz. The questions were constructed keeping in mind the commercial aptitude of the quizzers. Out of all the teams present that day, 6 teams qualified over their business expertise. It was heartening to see the audience never getting dull for a moment, and taking active participation in the quiz.

All the green grocers in Ahmedabad were quite perplexed. They found all their vegetables missing. Upon investigation, they found them at the DPS Bopal Preschool campus!!!
The vegetable market was set up in the campus where some of our little ones came dressed as vegetable vendors and others were ready to buy the fruits and vegetables. These sari clad little girls and moustache painted boys called aloud, “ Bhaji le lo, Sasti aur tazi sabzi lelo…………..”
Some students became the buyers and bargained to get the best discounts on fruits and vegetables. The shopping experience was made realistic by giving them play currency notes. The children were given hands on experience on weighing scales, traditional and an electronic one. Our little vendors carefully tried to balance the scale and weigh the vegetables. The children got the opportunity to see, smell, touch and learn about seasonal and unseasonal vegetables.
Overall it turned out to be an enriching experience for the little ones as they learnt how the market transactions are done with money. They went back home with the excitement of selecting and buying their choice of fruits and vegetables, the next time they visit the vegetable market with their parents.
Prep celebrated “Vegetables Day” where some of the tiny tots turned up in school dressed up as red and robust tomatoes, fresh and green cucumber, crunchy carrot, the majestic brinjal with its royal crown and the cabbage in all its leafy glory. These little angels spoke a few lines about the vegetable they depicted and coloured vegetable mobiles for their classroom.
This magnificent show, full of vitamins and minerals, left us with a feeling of health and happiness!!!

Enough food exists to feed everyone in the world, and yet, the United Nations estimates about 800 million people—approximately one in nine are undernourished today. With the objective ‘to feed hungry children and take a step forward to fight the persistence of hunger in a world of plenty and the slow progress of hunger eradication ’, DPS Bopal started a campaign ‘Ek Muthhi Anaaj’- a Grain Collection Drive. The drive started from 10 August 2015 and was open to students and staff members for the whole week. Teachers and students of DPS-Bopal came forward to donate grains like wheat, rice and pulses.
The drive began with a lot of excitement among students who brought grains as much as they could manage. The enthusiasm among students to donate grains was a sight to behold. Even though they were asked to bring a fistful of grain, students went out of the way and brought multiple fistfuls of grains. In the primary wing children donated with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. As days passed, the drive became stronger. The number of children donating grains was more than what was seen on day 1. The value of caring and compassion for those in need was evident.
Jahanvi Galani of class X donated 25 Kgs of wheat and other grains as well.
The same zeal was also seen among the senior students. A sincere desire to help someone in need could be seen in the students. Grains came along in various quantities - rice, wheat, green gram dal and black gram dal - from all the students who wished to see a smile on the face of less privileged children.
Teachers joined hands in this noble endeavour to help the needy people. With their dedicated involvement in the drive, the mission to collect grains became more purposeful and more invigorating than before. Not only students and teachers but also the housekeeping staff donated a variety of grains…which is truly heartening.
Indeed, it is moments like these that convince us that children are truly destiny’s chosen ones… There was a great coordination by staff and teachers to manage this event and a big support from parents who inculcated the value of sharing and helping needy among their children.

Greetings from DPS Bopal.
"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way" - Edward de Bono
It is a phenomenon whereby something new and somehow valuable is formed. The created item may be intangible (such as an idea , a scientific theory , a musical composition or an original physical object (such as an invention , a literary work or a painting ). . DPS Bopal cordially invites one and all to a kaleidoscope of creativity as part of its 20 years journey of creative excellence .SRIJAN 2015...We believe that :
"A creative mind is motivated by the desire to achieve and not by the desire to beat others," - Ayn Rand
In order to succeed, your desire for success must be greater than your fear of losing…..

Allotting TV time... All children like to watch tv. But there are certain things that you should bear in mind, while watching tv . GO FOR EDUCATIONAL VALUE- Children love watching cartoon shows. but make sure that you find some time to choose channels that will increase children's knowledge, and have some educational value. DON'T USE TV AS A DIVERSION- - Allot special times for watching TV, and stick to its schedule. SELECT AGE APPROPRIATE CONTENT- always keeps an eye on what children are watching. Most tv's today have the facility to block off certain channels, or to put a child lock on them. It is not safe to give the child remote control to browse tv channels. SIT WITH THEM- it is good to sit with the child while watching tv.You can have chats about the shows the child watches. Ask them good questions about what they like. Always make sure that children have adequate outdoor activities, thereby allowing them to interact and play with other children. Also engage them in activities.
“Leaders are not born, they are created”
The quote itself defines the importance of the medium, the creator who moulds young minds into strong leaders! Such miracle is not a one day achievement it is the grueling efforts that are invested in a child at its school. To see the sense of satisfaction of delivering the best brings a sense of joy to the hearts. Such was the day at DPSEast when the new supreme council stood before all with a promise in their eyes to guard and inspire the school students to take care of the discipline and the honour of the school. The Investiture ceremony 2015-16, showcased the members of Junior as well as senior supreme council ready to take the oath for a new and a promising year ahead. The students’ performance took the hearts away. The students of the school band gave an enthralling performance by creating music from the non musical instruments. The students also presented semi classical form of dance and a contemporary dance with an inspirational message. Their performance contained thrills, determination and pride to be a student of DPSEast. The new team and Student of the Year were honoured by honourable Principal Sir Mr. Hitesh Puri .
We wish the new team best of wishes to deliver their duties with sincerity and honesty.

Imaginary shapes and symbols, undoubtedly occupy some place in our dreams and are charged with some or the other meaning but it's the real shapes and patterns which are the DNA of nature...to give our students a clear vision on how they are an important part of our life, we at DPS Bopal celebrated Shape Day in grade 1 on 6th July 2015. Making drawings and designs with different shapes were the highlights of the activity along with the dresses with different patterns worn by the students and not to forget the food items of various shapes which attracted special attention from each other.

FEEDBACK OF STUDENTS:
It was a very informative session. I came to know about the difference in approach required for a competitive exam and board exam
Ms.Anmol Bhatia, ClassXII-B
Mr.Shrikant’s session was good and it stimulated us to be ambitious. But his talk was mainly confined to engineering and medical. It would have been better if he could have given us exposure about various other career fields also.
Ms. Chaitya Shah, Class XII-B
The session gave us useful tips to tackle the exam and exam pressure. I found the session quite good.
Ms.Anagha Chacko, Class XII –A
The session was too engineering oriented. Career in the field of architecture, design, air force… etc was not discussed. The workshop must cater to students aspiring for other career options too. But I liked the tips given by him to prepare for board exam and competitive exam.
Ms.Vrinda Mehta, Class XII-A

Summer time is at time for relaxation and fun. It is the time when time comes to a standstill and we can indulge ourselves in hours of play and entertainment. But this time which is completely our own, hangs heavy on our hands when it is not sprinkled with some measure of fruitful activity. At the summer workshop, students find that they can learn some sport like cricket, basketball, skating or soccer. Enhancing their drawing skills for a short period every day becomes easy at the Art Workshop. To take a picture perfect, many have joined Photography workshop. Making robots cannot be an easy task but it certainly seems so at the Robotics workshop at DPS. Budding authors and poets could enhance their writing skills by attending the language workshop 'Xpress Yourself'. All in all students enjoy themselves doing something which does not fit into their school routine.
A workshop on Blogging was organized by ‘Satori- Let’s Not Yawn’, a community of literature lovers of the city for the first time at Ahmedabad National Book fair 2015 on May 1. About 12 students from DPS attended the workshop. The workshop started with the basics of how to create a blog and write posts for novices and went on to explain how the blog can be a vehicle of expression and communication. Different types of blogs and what made them appealing to an audience were discussed. The workshop also showed bloggers how they could earn a modest amount through regular blogging. Content writing as a profession was also touched upon.
According to the organizers, a blog was 'a space to call your own' in the virtual world where you were free to state your views and discuss any topic of your interest or even write a diary. Blogging was also a medium to connect with like minded people and 'express yourself' as observed by Antara Patel, who already writes a regular blog. The issue of copyright and mentioning sources for borrowed material was also addressed. The importance of the correct use of keywords and labels as well as attractive titles was emphasized. Later, the students who also happened to be avid readers and book lovers, took the opportunity to browse through the book stores and pick up a few books that caught their fancy! Prior to the workshop, the students were interviewed by 94.3 My FM where they voiced their opinions on the Book fair in general and the workshop in particular. The city's mayor Respected Smt. Meenakshi Patel also graced the occasion and interacted with the students.

‘The essence in the colours evokes an everlasting impression in young minds.’ Colours elicit happiness and comfort, can stimulate the mind and have an energizing effect on mind and soul. Painting in early education is a part of its natural landscape. We can see the easel filled with an array of vivid colours just waiting to be explored. To provide a platform to our young artists to engrain the vivacity of colours, Delhi Public School, Bopal feted Paint Day on 27th April 2015 for grade I and II and on 28th April 2015 for grade III to V. The students enwrapped themselves in varied colours and conveyed their ideas, expressed their emotions while exploring various techniques of painting namely - vegetable, hand, bud, spray and wax painting. The students had aesthetically pleasing moments along with their nurturing teachers as they were incessantly steered through the activity. The event provided a sanctuary for children to look at the world beyond a simple picture. Every child seemed to be a Michelangelo in making, completely engrossed in creating his/her own masterpiece. All the students joyously carried home a souvenir of their own to have an everlasting memory of the jubilant celebration.
y portrait that is painted with feelings is the portrait of the artist not the sitter” – Oscar Wilde.
How well was this quotation experienced by the little Dip sites of D.P.S Pre-Primary as they welcomed the Paint Day with full interest and enthusiasm!
Jr. Kg had their Paint Day on 24th, Sr. Kg on 28th and Prep on the 29th of April, 2015.
Splashing paint on their paper canvas was pleasurable and creative! They painted on art sheets delightfully
smearing paints. Interesting designs created by them were a treat to the eyes!
Painting is an important part of our little ones’ early education and it appeals to children of all ages. It is full of fun, enhances ingenuity and helps to develop both physical and social skills.
