Road Safety Should be Our Priority

Realising the vulnerability of the kids on roads not just as victims but at times as traffic offenders also , DPS Khanna conducted a ‘Road Safety Activity’ for the students of Pre Primary ,under the able patronage of the Hon’ble Pro Vice Chairperson Ms Annu Bains to make the students aware of the various hazards on the road and how to take defensive actions against them.

Students were taught about the various road safety rules, traffic rules, traffic and road signals in a fun and planned way . Human life is precious and we,at DPS Khanna want to imbibe this spirit in our kids right through the beginning ,hence this noble initiative by the School to educate our students .

Independence Day Celebrations

DPS Khanna celebrated 73rd Independence Day on the 15th August, 2019 with unprecedented patriotic fervour. The whole school wore a patriotic look. The Chairman Mr. D.S. Bains hoisted the Tricolour. The gamut of activities held on the campus consisted of special morning assembly. The group song ‘Ae mere watan ke logon’ filled every heart with patriotism. There was a play based on the drug addiction to spread awareness against this menace. The choreography ‘A Soldier’s Life’ was the highlight of the day.

The Chairman addressed the gathering with his enlightening words to bring forth the feeling of oneness among the students and pride for the nation whose diverse culture makes it a great country. He further motivated the students to have dignity and respect for the hard-earned freedom in their heart and soul always.

The programme concluded with the national song ‘Vande Matram’.

Inter House Role Play Competition on Idioms

An InterHouse Role Play  Competition on Idioms and Proverbial Gestures was conducted for Grades VI-VIII.The enthusiastic students, resplendent in their costumes and glowing in their finery ,emulated the concept of enacting on Idioms with confidence and passion so well that the judges – Headmistress Ms Neha Rattan and English Teacher Ms Vandana Sharma had a real tough time in selecting the best out of all the breathtaking  performances.A sneak peek into the performances of our talented students.

The whole enterprise of education is extricably linked with the development of values.Devoid of the potential to nurture values, education loses its heart and soul.

Responding to this urgent need of encouraging Pro- social behaviour in children and youth, Dps Khanna invited the students of Government Middle School, Ikolahi for spending a day with them and enjoying certain

Recreational Games.

A day well spent

Animal Kingdom Activity

Wildlife is a precious gift by God to Mankind.To educate the children about the importance of both domestic as well as wild animals in maintaining the ecological balance, ‘Animal Kingdom ‘ activity was organized for the students of Pre Primary .They also enacted an interesting and informative role play on poaching and hunting of animals, urging the audience to save the ‘fauna of life’.

Beauty and teaching of morning assemblies

Life does not come with a manual,it comes with a mother.The cardinal rule of parenting is that all children are equal in the eyes of parents was aptly presented through a plethora of presentations by the students of Grade VIC . The students of Grade I A equally mesmerized us by throwing light upon the burning topic ‘Unity is Strength’, reminding us of the old saying ‘United we Stand,Divided we fall’.Proud of our young fleet of preachers.

Global warming, storms, hurricanes , bush fires are all ominous warnings that we need to look after our planet . One way of doing this is to decrease the carbon footprint by planting more trees.

We at DPS Khanna have a tradition where a child plants a tree on his/ her birthday. 
Today,the Hon’ble Vice Chairperson Ms.Annu Bains set an example by planting a sapling on her birthday, urging the students,staff and the parents alike to participate by planting trees in their homes,neighborhoods, villages to be a part of this movement.

Planting a sapling on your Birthday is like leaving something memorable and tangible in your school campus.Taking this noble cause of a ‘Green Earth’ one notch forward,DPS Khanna is also planting trees in the three adjacent villages to improve the environment and decrease the effects of industrialization.

We ,urge and make an earnest appeal to make this ‘birthday plantation initiative’ of DPS Khanna a fruitful one.

On this birthday make a difference ,plant a birthday tree.

In a noble initiative to save our environment the Chairperson Mr. D.S. Bains, the Principal, Mr. S. Mukherjee and the Head Mistress Ms. Neha Rattan along with the Members of the Junior Council planted saplings in the School. The School initiated a programme named ‘Plant Trees and Save Environment’ to protect the environment for the coming generations. As many as 250 saplings will be planted in the school under this programme. Mr. Surinder Sharma from the Forest Department was the Chief Guest on the occasion. He acquainted the students with the environmental issues and told them about its impact on the earth and its inhabitants. He also guided them about the proper maintenance of the planted saplings to help them grow into beautiful and robust trees.
The Chairperson, Mr. D. S. Bains motivated the students to grow more and more trees. He further encouraged them to adopt the planted trees and take care of them throughout their life.
