The Semantic Orientation at DPS Ranchi
“The Beginning is always today!!”- Shelly
The happy children, the toiling teachers and the well pleased parents… Yes, the morning sun of 23.03.2018, Friday shone to light up the path of new journey for the nonchalant little minds.
The orientation session held at the school on the day was the first ever chance for the parents and teachers to have a better understanding of the school environment and children respectively.
The session was a big success as new admitted students of classes Nursery, Prep and IX could witness their second home for the rules and regulations of the school. The school strongly believes in the School-Parents Partnership as they both form the roots of a child’s personality and career development.
The session also took a major turn when it emphasized on conscious parenting. The parents were then asked not to make the child the mirror of their aspirations as the major concern is not only to make them an academic performer but also cater to the basic motto of education i.e., to bring in the world a good and global citizen. We should not forget what Herbert Spenser once quoted- The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
The Principal of the school, Dr. Ram Singh on the occasion, congratulated all the exciting faces while addressing them for the new beginning of the ward’s life. He did not fail to emphasize that how important the role of School-Parents Partnership for the betterment of child is as- No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.
And thus, the hustle-bustle at the school ended with the really contended smiles on parents’ faces.
