An overview of the School
Dwarka International School strictly emphasizes on the moral development of the child. It believes that the supreme end of the educative process should be the training of characters and personality of students in such a way that they will be able to realize their full potentialities and contribute to the well being of the community. It is education which can impart the ability or power of better judgment and build strong characters. Desirable qualities of head, heart and hand are ingrained through our system of education. Students here acquire these qualities not passively or theoretically but by getting involved in different activities. They are motivated to participate in activities they are interested in as well as those they can relate to their day to day life. Acquiring life skills is thereby a very essential and integral part of our educational process. Our ultimate concern is not only to cultivate wealth of muscles, fullness of knowledge or refinement of feelings but also strength and purity of character.
Parents Our Partners in Education
Modern education puts emphasis on the immediate needs, interests and experiences of the child and considering individual differences. There is the need of establishing effective parent- teacher cooperation. It is the home which lays the foundation and then the school builds up the edifice of the child’s life. Parent- teacher cooperation is highly encouraged at Dwarka International School. Parents participate in school functions, teaching activities and volunteer for special occasions. In order to make parents aware of the process and well being of their child we motivate parents to offer their valuable suggestions and give necessary feedback either through mails or feedback drop box. Professional parents are urged to share their valuable experiences with children as part of our Guest Lecture Series. The social development of a child is thus made possible by securing parental cooperation. We salute our parents for their unstinted support and cooperation.
