DeeSians , on 9th November, 2016, received a lesson in financial literacy through activities conducted during the day. The demonitisation phenomenon sweeping the country like a turbulent storm, imparted some valuable lessons to the students and sub staff . ‘Demonitisation’, its need and impact was discussed by the teachers in their classes. Students swarmed around the digital display board for information on the ban of Rs 500 and 1000 notes. Little minds were worried about their collection in the piggy banks and the future of those notes. They sought advice from their teachers .
The members of ‘Teach for India’(Work Education Activity) conducted a session for the sub staff enlightening them about the current scenario so as to avoid any panic situation and advised them to be beware of cheating.

A small step - A giant leap
‘Campaign for a Cause’ is a new initiative taken up by DeeSians. They are proud to shoulder social responsibilities and as the year progresses, important issues will be addressed by the students. The theme for April is ‘Save- A- Drop’. As the city reels under scorching heat and severe water crisis, DeeSians surge ahead trying to find a solution. Various activities have been allocated to classes and the final outcome will be the presentation of a project report to a Government representative .
Due to summer vacation being advanced, the activities scheduled for April will now be conducted once school commences in June.

The purpose was surely to sensitize students towards the life of not so privileged in the society and to motivate them to do their bit to make the society a better place to live in. There could have not been a better individual than Dr. Pillai to do so , who has devoted seventy years of his life to social service and is still moving on the path motivating so many others alongside. He told the students that every individual has the ability and potential to help and how we can experience joy in giving. IDF provides a platform to so many and DSE joins hands with them for the betterment of underprivileged children .
Swachh Bharat Swachh Vidyalaya
A Visit to Bapu Ghat
“Be the change you want to see in the world” was a quote said by ‘the Father of our Nation’. To experience the same, the students of Grade VII, VIII and IX of Delhi School of excellence visited the Bapu Ghat on 17th October 2014.
To start the session there was a small game in which students were given a picture and had to find the similar one on the wall that had 400+ pictures of Gandhiji. Then, there was a digital session for the students where they played memory games, quiz and learnt a lot about Gandhiji. The students then saw four movies of Gandhiji and his contribution to the Nation.
Deesians took a step towards ‘Swachh Bharat’ and cleaned the whole area at Bapu Ghat. Last but not the least, the students recited the poem ‘Gandhjii tere padh par’ and everyone was given a book on Gandhiji which depicted his struggle towards Free India.
Indian Development Foundation
