Student Health Activity

Health is often a state of physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Hence, CBSE have decided to mainstream health and physical education for Grades IX - XII with the aim of preventing them from having a sedentary lifestyle or turn into couch potatoes.

The students and staff of DSE have contributed a large number of clothes, food grains etc to extent their support to the flood victims of Kerala, who are in dire need of help.

ALERT TODAY – ALIVE TOMORROW.

 In connection with the 28th National Road Safety Week-17th January-23rd January 2017, and as a part of the advocacy campaign for Road Safety, a few activities were taken up by the students. The theme for this year was “YOUR SAFETY, SECURES YOUR FAMILY- BE CAUTIOUS ON ROAD”.

Taking part in a Road Safety Week is a great way to educate students about the dangers on roads and how one can take steps to be safe. It can make a huge difference to children's lives and help to prevent fatalities and injuries. It is also an opportunity when awareness can be raised about the importance of road safety among other local people.

Keeping in mind the theme for this year’s Road Safety Campaign, the students of our school got down to action on the issues related to road safety by taking part in various activities like Essay Writing Competition for students of Grades IX and X and creative slogans on road safety by the students of Grade VIII. At the outset, a talk on Road Safety was given by the traffic officers to the students of Grade VIII to X.

The students also put up a road show with catchy slogans, posters and banners pertaining to safe driving and traffic rules to be followed by the public. They also distributed pamphlets and spoke to public in order to bring awareness in them.

As a part of the road show, the students also presented a street play in front of a super market near the school to promote road safety,

It was a good opportunity to highlight and emphasize the need for road safety and contribute to the cause. The students participated in all the activities enthusiastically.

Giving = Living

In view of National Voluntary Blood Donation Day, a blood donation camp was organised by the school in association with the IDF on 1st October, 2016. The camp was a great success with many parents and staff members who volunteered to donate blood.

Time for Action

In connection with the 27th Road Safety Week, and as a part of the advocacy campaign for road safety, a few activities were taken up by the students of Delhi School of Excellence, Attapur. The theme for this year was “Time for Action”.

Taking part in a Road Safety Week is a great way to educate students about the dangers on roads and how we can take steps to be safe. It can make a huge difference to children's lives and help to prevent fatalities and injuries. It is also an opportunity when awareness can be raised about the importance of road safety among other local people.

Keeping in mind the theme for this year’s Road Safety Campaign- “Time for Action”, the students of our school got down to action on the issues related to road safety by presenting a special assembly on the importance of road safety and on the effects of violation of road safety rules. The students also put up a road show with catchy slogans on placards, posters and banners like the importance of wearing helmet, seat belt, not texting or speaking on cell phone while driving, ills of speeding, zigzag driving, drunken driving etc. They also distributed pamphlets on road safety and spoke to people about it.

"Silence is one's powerful scream.” The grade IX of Delhi School of Excellence, Attapur visited the Autism Friendly Village (Autism Ashram) on 18th January 2016. It was an over whelming experience for all of us albeit a little different. The ambience of the Autism Ashram was truly amazing as the blooming flowers welcomed us with their fragrance. On reaching the venue, Mr. Malikarjunan the Vice President of Care For Autism Society addressed and guided us throughout the journey of 9.78 acres which was an eye opener. Each autistic child was allotted a room with his/her care giver, which in our opinion was truly wonderful. we realized that the need of the hour is to provide appropriate vocational training combined with occupational therapy, hydro therapy and speech therapy for integrating them towards gainful employment. A token amount of 72,500 collected by the students of DSE was handed over to the President of the society.

DSE believes in living for a cause. True to its vision, social responsibilities are an integral part of this organization and IDF (Indian Development Foundation) partners with us to sensitise the staff and students. In its Annual Grants Function, held at Jaipur recently, IDF inducted Shri P. Madhusudhan Rao Garu (Chairman, DSE) as its patron as he has been the driving force behind the social activities that DSE takes up. It is indeed a proud moment for DSE group of institutions to flourish under the aegis of a philanthropist like Sir. DSE will be part of many more events to reach out to society.

On eve of National Voluntary blood donation day, a blood donation camp was organised by DSE, Attapur and IDF on parent teacher meeting day on 3rd October, 2015. Lot of housewives who do not get an opportunity to participate and donate blood got a chance to do so. The camp was a huge success with many parents and staff members coming forward to donate blood. Our gratitude to the Management, Staff and Students who campaigned for the camp to create awareness and  mobilize donors. Appreciation to John and Varun of the IDF team for coordinating the camp.

The students of grade VI were taken on a trip to Tank Bund, the day next of Lord Vinayaka immersion to make them realize about the harm caused by these idols, and also their effect on water bodies.

During this trip the students were also sensitized about water pollution. The students took out a rally with placards and slogans to create awareness among the public too. The media present there to cover the immersion was impressed by the initiative of the students and conducted an impromptu interview with them which was telecast on NTV channel.

The students were pleased with their initiative and hoped that things would change for the better in the near future. They pledged to promote eco friendly Ganeshas.

Old age is also called the second childhood, and is a time when one needs love and care of the near and dear.

To commemorate the Day of the Elders on 1st October, the students of grade VIII of Delhi School of Excellence, Attapur paid a visit to Aram Ghar a home for differently abled, specially privileged and aged people. The students had taken some daily use items like soaps, oil, oats, tooth paste, fruits, snacks, biscuits, pickle, zandu balm, vicks, and also medicines. The students were apprehensive about how they will be received but the inmates of the home were very welcoming, friendly and happy to see them.

The men and women in the home were housed in different places. The students first visited the women and distributed the fruits and biscuits that they had carried. They interacted with many of the women and most of them had very sad stories to share. Most of them had been abandoned by their children and some had come there on their own as their children thought of them as a burden. They were just waiting to share their grief with someone. Every mother wants her children to be happy. She wants her children to have the best that she can afford. For this she works hard most of her life. Sometimes she goes hungry to feed her children. But   when her children have grown she only wants them to spend some of their free time with her.  But she is pushed into an old age home. She tries her best to adjust to the surroundings, talk to the people who are strangers and unknown to her. She has brought up all her kids but her kids don’t have a little space in their homes for her.

The men in the home also had similar stories. There was this gentleman whose son is in the US but he lives in this home. He pays him a yearly visit and the man is more than happy with that. Another gentleman had lost the use of his legs and his son who works for an MNC brought him and put him here. Whatever the case may be, the sufferers are the aged ones. It was an emotional experience and many students broke down listening to their stories.

Though we spent only a few hours with them, they made our students realize the value of their grandparents and the need to take care of them.  Many of them felt that their love for their family, particularly their grandparents, has grown stronger and deeper after this visit. They understood that what they need at this time of their lives is not so much money and luxuries but a shoulder to lean on. They promised to take care of their parents in the best way possible. Opportunity, words and loved ones — once gone never come back!

Indian Development Foundation (IDF) formally known as Indian Leprosy Foundation is totally dedicated to health, education and development. IDF has been networking with school teams in several states for health promotion and leprosy/TB awareness. The Principals, teachers and students have played a major role in health awareness campaign and have raised willing and voluntary donations for humanitarian causes.

IDF organized an award function to honor the principals of schools and students who had achieved peak performance during 2014-15. The Chairman of DSE, Mr Madhusudan Rao has been formally inducted as a Patron of IDF. Recently, he was invited as a chief guest for the IDF Annual Grants and Awards function held at Jaipur.

Delhi School of Excellence, Attapur students proved themselves as natural givers. IDF has provided them the right platform to help the needy. This charitable act has been so impactful that our students have learnt the art of giving. Seventeen students of our school have been honoured for substantial resource generation. Proud parents were also present to capture this honourable moment. They received medals with their names engraved on it.

This will surely encourage the students to contribute towards a social cause and we hope many more will come forward this year.
