Akhilesh Chaturvedi– In the present times, our children are more inclined towards western festivals.  We at DPS organize cultural activities to promote and inform about our culture.  We organize specialized events for celebrating all festivals and important days.


Suhani -What makes DPS apart from other schools?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-DPS functions under the aegis of DPS Society.  DPS is present both nationally and internationally.  It has a strong back of educationists who readily extend any support to any DPS school.  This facilitates interaction and exchange of knowledge among teachers and students on a large scale.


Suhani -What do you think about todays educational System?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-Education system in our country is very complex.  We should form a system that which is designed by educationists and not based on political interests.

Suhani -Now a days Every school is having different Courses ..whats ur opinion in this?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-Schools cannot conduct different course.  The syllabus is as prescribed by the CBSE.  Text Books or reference can be different.   This is okay so long as the syllabus is being adhered.


Suhani -As a Principal what are your responsibilities and how comfort you are upto managing all this stuffs?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-As a Principal, I am responsible for every activity that is related to the school.  I have team of dedicated staff who help in executing and accomplishing my goals.


Suhani -Whats importance for Students- Good School-Talented teachers or Parents?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-In my opinion, all the three elements are equally significant.  A good school proves as a ground for education; a talented teacher imbibes the knowledge into the child and the parent helps nourishes the child with vigour.


Suhani -Many of the parents have thinking that if their child is in big school there is no more responsibilities for them to take care of their wards in studies.  what do u think about this?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-Every parent owes the onus of helping their children with academics at home.  Merely admitting a child to some bigger school cannot absolve the parent from the responsibility.  In my opinion, parent should help the child with his / her academics and must necessary convey feedback to the concerned teacher during ptm.  This will always be great help to the teacher and the child.


Suhani -Strenght of DPS?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-We had made a small beginning in the year 2006 with 600 students.  Over a period of 6 years, our strength has a grown up to 2300 students.


Suhani -Where you are looking yourself after 10 years?

Akhilesh Chaturvedi-Teaching has always been my obsession.  Ten years later, I would prefer to continue to contribute as a Mentor of the school and use all my experience to augment the educational standards of the school.
