In addition to learning valuable skills of organising, promoting and getting involved in group projects.Our students grow up as compassionate adult contributing to enrich the lives of others.
BLOOD DONATION CAMP
Indraprastha INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL with its motto of ‘Teach Each Child Develop Whole Child’, believes that the holistic development of a child is only possible if the child grows in a healthy teaching-learning environment. It is an environment that helps the child to grow intellectually and aesthetically into a well- rounded human being. The school organized a blood donation camp on May12, 2018 to help the Thalassemia patients.. The project helped to sensitize people and the children and instill in them the values of helping others in any possible way.
The young enthusiastic Green Brigade of Indraprastha INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, had chalked out a day-long schedule for the observation of ‘Every Day Earth Day’. They are aware of their duties as responsible citizens of the nation and have vowed to ‘treat the earth how we want the earth to treat us.’ On April 26, 2018 the students really made everyone proud by venturing out to the corners of Dwarka and spreading the message of ‘No Polythene Bags’. Curious onlookers and daily shoppers were all impressed by surprise when the Green Brigade from Indraprastha took away their polythene shopping bags and gave them handmade cloth bags instead. Dr B C Sabata, the Chief Scientific Officer, Government of NCT of Delhi was the Chief Guest for the occasion. He flagged off the rally comprising enthusiastic students accompanied by teachers.
To bring smiles and to share happiness with the underprivileged children during the festival times the student volunteers under the guidance of the teachers collected dry food items, stationary and small gift items. The aim was to sensitize the children about the value of caring and sharing. The children of the school personally collected gift and dry food items, packed them attractively and then shared the same with the underprivileged children coming to the Delhi Council for Child Welfare ( DCCW), Janakpuri.
“Indraprastha, Dwarka winners of the Grand Banyan Project
Indraprastha International School, Dwarka, excelled once more, winning the Grand Banyan Project initiated by British Council. It had been a wonderful journey and an educating experience for the students of Indraprastha, who gave the project an international dimension by partnering with schools in Australia and Sri Lanka. High Commissioner (acting) of Sri Lanka to India was overjoyed to witness the inaugural function of the Eco Rally held at Indraprastha International School on Friday, September 23, 2011. Presiding over the function as the Chief Guest, he said, “I have never seen an environmental drive of this magnitude or intensity. I congratulate the school and the students for these very progressive efforts.” Indraprastha INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, as a continuation to its ‘Go Green’ efforts and a part of Grand Banyan Project, held an environmental rally to the commercial places of Dwarka, to sensitize the general public about the need for conscious efforts to save the environment from further decay. More than 200 students accompanied by 20 teachers and the Delhi Traffic Police spread the universal message of the three R s i.e. recycle, reuse and reduce. This novel way of involving students where their energies are channelized towards the right direction, has borne fruit in the form of National recognition for environmental service, from British Council. In a grand ceremony held at Bhubaneswar between January 27 and 30, 2012, more than 100 schools across the country participated in a symposium and an award ceremony.
Indraprastha INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL was honoured with the Grand Banyan Award by the Chief Minister of Odisha, Sri Naveen Patnaik, on Sunday, January 29, 2012.”
