Why God Made Teachers
by Kevin William Huff

When God  created teachers,
He gave us special friends
To help us understand His world
And truly comprehend
The beauty and the wonder
Of everything we see,
And become a better person
With each discovery.

When God created teachers,
He gave us special guides
To show us ways in which to grow
So we can all decide
How to live and how to do
What's right instead of wrong,
To lead us so that we can lead
And learn how to be strong.

Why God created teachers,
In His wisdom and His grace,
Was to help us learn to make our world

A better, wiser place.

Independence Day Greetings

Greetings to all on the nation's Independence Day!
May this day take all countrymen fast away....
Away from the drudgery of a mediocre life,
Away from narrow behaviour and selfish strife.
The country stares at a critical phase in history;
Its march to greatness awaits moments of victory.
The Indian genius needs to fully come to the fore,
Our tasks defined, we have to persevere and score.
Nothing is impossible for this great Aryan race.
This short inglorious period--we'll quickly efface.
Our resurgence will be unprecedented and high.
Our progress as a nation will touch the sky.
This is a divine writ of history that none can erase,
It's a necessity for survival and welfare of entire human race.
Happy Independence Day to all !!

'Today  you lead the school
Tomorrow your students will lead the world'

There is no happiness that can match up to the feeling of a teacher's joy on seeing her students reach the pinnacles of success in their lives. It is one profession which creates all others.
It is the only profession which still has so much of selfless love, where the 'guru' is overjoyed to see her 'shishya' surpass herself in success and knowledge.
I quote a few lines written by a student, to express my gratitude to all the teachers who work so tirelessly to make this world a better place.

"Teachers are dedicated
To our education.
This is their passion
And our liberation.

Happy Teacher's Day to all the wonderful teachers !

  Rest Is Not Idleness, And To Lie Sometimes On The Grass Under The Trees On A Summer’S Day, Listening To The Murmur Of Water, Or Watching The Clouds Float Across The Blue Sky, Is By No Means Waste Of Time.       
                                                                                                        -John Lubbock                                                             
It’s that time of the year when there is cheer in the air…Holidays are here. Vacation itineraries are being planned to perfection. To beat the scorching Delhi heat, everyone ventures out to idyllic destinations, relaxes in refreshing getaways. Some indulge in adventurous activities while others catch up with family and friends.
Holidays surely are a fun way to momentarily get away from the mundane humdrum of life and refreshen ourselves. We need to enjoy and unwind, making the most of our holidays.
However, at the same time, holidays are also an opportune time to reflect. Ponder on our tasks ahead, plan out our pending goals, strategize our work…so that once we come back rejuvenated from the break, we are sorted. We get a head start to begin with and are also crystal clear in our minds about the road ahead.
So children, enjoy your vacations to the fullest…bring back rich experiences and vibrant memories. Explore new places, discover things, build your repertoire and develop creative skills…

Let us dedicate the New Year to environment protection.............

The year 2015 ends and the new year starts,
But the same message rings in all peoples' hearts.
Time flies, calendar rolls and date changes,
Water continues to flow through the Ganges.
Issues still burn and concerns still remain,
And we continue to endure that nagging pain,
While still hankering after crass commercial gain.
It's time to reflect upon our living approach,
Our basic fundamentals we need to broach.
Our planet is in a bad shape and reasons we know,
Unmitigated pollution, global warming and El- Nino.
Nature is all powerful; no mercy it will show,
Our castles and mansions it will quickly blow.
Tornadoes, floods, wildfires and extremes of climate,
Are a daily warning of humanity's impending fate.
We should change  paradigms, before nature we should bow,
In commercial pursuits we need to go slow.
Humans should be more humanistic, less materialistic,
To our everyday lives this principle should stick.
Let us dedicate 2016 to environment protection,
And make the earth better for our next generation.

A Tribute to teachers

From soul searching darkness to light
Is a journey together we alight
She provides strength to my flight
For I know her hands will hold me tight
And never let me be out of sight......

These lines were beautifully etched on a card that I received from one of the students on the morning of teachers day.

It set me thinking of the enormous trust and faith placed in us by our learners. When those shining eyes and bright faces look at us as role models and mentors........ I feel humbled and honoured at the same time.

I take this opportunity to call out to all my fellow teachers to pledge our utmost sincerity to this chosen profession of ours, that provides us with the power to affect lives positively. It gives us the unique opportunity to be of service to the community, nation and the world at large by our ability to inspire the process of erudition and growth.

Despite the challenges and roadblocks, the tight schedules and substitutions,the syllabus deadlines and examinations , let's all ENJOY the process of teaching and enabling our learners to truly blossom.

Wishing you all a very happy teachers day !!

A very warm welcome to all of you as we enter the new academic session. Like the fragrance of new blooms that fill the sylvan surroundings, the bright and cheerful faces of the children all dressed in their crisp white uniforms adorn the aisles of  DPS Vasant Kunj.

It is that time of the year when we are all charged up, plan and execute future endeavours, pave way for growth and charter a new course. We fill our bags with new books and hearts with new desires and our eyes firmly set on our goals we begin this journey of the next 365 days. As someone has rightly said, "the whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows."  Windows that will open into opportunities , growth and progress.

I want to share with all of you a poem by a ten year old boy who talks about doing our best at school;

Each day i'll do my best
And i won't do any less.
My work will always please me,
And i won't accept a mess.
I'll colour very carefully
My writing will be neat.
And i will not be happy ,
Till my papers are complete.
I'll always do my homework,
And try my best at every test.
I won't forget my promise,
To do my very best.

So lets all pledge this new session to do our very best at the tasks assigned to us.

Good luck and God bless.
