“Victory is in the quality of competition, not the final score.”
Co-curricular activities bring out the linguistic, logical-mathematical and spatial talents of an individual student. These activities serve to supplement the efforts by the teachers who diligently bolster and foster the inherent talents of the student.
Delhi Public School, Pune offers a wide variety of sporting and non-sporting activities to students. Besides the regular curriculum, a lot of importance is given to co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Each and every co-curricular activity has been carefully chosen and introduced into the school after ensuring that the teachers/coaches/trainers are of unimpeachable integrity and are capable of performing the multi-dimensional functions that the co-curricular activity entails. The co-curricular activities may be classified as intra-school, inter-school and holistic activities. Along with the co curricular activities, the school has introduced Clubs that cater to the peculiar interests of individual students of the school.
The co-curricular programme is implemented through Thursday Activities and SUPW sessions which are held every Wednesday. Apart from these, various other on-and off-campus programmes like Night Camp, excursions and trips, and inter- and intra-school competitions are also organized.
