All the green grocers in Ahmedabad were quite perplexed. They found all their vegetables missing. Upon investigation, they found them at the DPS Bopal Preschool campus!!!
The vegetable market was set up in the campus where some of our little ones came dressed as vegetable vendors and others were ready to buy the fruits and vegetables. These sari clad little girls and moustache painted boys called aloud, “ Bhaji le lo, Sasti aur tazi sabzi lelo…………..”
Some students became the buyers and bargained to get the best discounts on fruits and vegetables. The shopping experience was made realistic by giving them play currency notes. The children were given hands on experience on weighing scales, traditional and an electronic one. Our little vendors carefully tried to balance the scale and weigh the vegetables. The children got the opportunity to see, smell, touch and learn about seasonal and unseasonal vegetables.
Overall it turned out to be an enriching experience for the little ones as they learnt how the market transactions are done with money. They went back home with the excitement of selecting and buying their choice of fruits and vegetables, the next time they visit the vegetable market with their parents.
Prep celebrated “Vegetables Day” where some of the tiny tots turned up in school dressed up as red and robust tomatoes, fresh and green cucumber, crunchy carrot, the majestic brinjal with its royal crown and the cabbage in all its leafy glory. These little angels spoke a few lines about the vegetable they depicted and coloured vegetable mobiles for their classroom.
This magnificent show, full of vitamins and minerals, left us with a feeling of health and happiness!!!

Lights Camera Action....... Roll camera ....... ‘Kadak Badshahi’ movie shoot
The shooting for a dance on the song ‘Mijaj Amdavadi’ of the movie Kadak Badshahi took place on 9 August, 2015 (Sunday) at IIM old campus. 30 students from our school of classes 9, 10, 11 and 12 got selected and performed in this song. The practice started at 7:00 a.m. in the morning where they were welcomed by the cheerful Ms. Mallika Sarabhai. The students practiced the sequence for an hour along with the other performers. After a short break the recordings started . After every 10 minutes the formations were changed and shooting was done from different angles.
The most exciting part for all the participants was when the shooting was conducted by a drone which is like a flying camera to get an aerial video of us.Students performed different combinations of sequence which were taught by the son of the filmmaker Ms. Mallika Sarabhai, Devanta Sarabhai. As each school or group of students was assigned a color as dress code, overall the whole group in their respective positions looked wonderful and colorful! The singers of the song along with the composer also danced with the students. One of the singers was the voice of the popular navaratri garba song ‘Bhai Bhai’; he was certainly someone who did not let the level of excitement come down.

An important area of focus was the fees and the criteria for getting acceptance by the various Universities. Students were informed that while majority of the good universities would require a SAT score of more than 1850 for admission and consideration for scholarships, there are a couple of other universities which do not require the SAT, but would judge the student based on his/her academic performance in the 9th, 10th and 11th grade, participation in cultural or social activities, recommendation letters, leadership qualities, etc.
Students were guided through the various other related aspects of pursuing education in the United States and recommended to personally research about the freedom of flexibility, guidelines and requirements of the universities they aim for, and narrow down the options accordingly.
Pratibha Gaurav Divas is one of the most important events on the school calendar because it is an occasion where we acknowledge through awards and performance of students, academic achievement, citizenship, student potential, a commitment to excellence and student leadership.

Enough food exists to feed everyone in the world, and yet, the United Nations estimates about 800 million people—approximately one in nine are undernourished today. With the objective ‘to feed hungry children and take a step forward to fight the persistence of hunger in a world of plenty and the slow progress of hunger eradication ’, DPS Bopal started a campaign ‘Ek Muthhi Anaaj’- a Grain Collection Drive. The drive started from 10 August 2015 and was open to students and staff members for the whole week. Teachers and students of DPS-Bopal came forward to donate grains like wheat, rice and pulses.
The drive began with a lot of excitement among students who brought grains as much as they could manage. The enthusiasm among students to donate grains was a sight to behold. Even though they were asked to bring a fistful of grain, students went out of the way and brought multiple fistfuls of grains. In the primary wing children donated with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. As days passed, the drive became stronger. The number of children donating grains was more than what was seen on day 1. The value of caring and compassion for those in need was evident.
Jahanvi Galani of class X donated 25 Kgs of wheat and other grains as well.
The same zeal was also seen among the senior students. A sincere desire to help someone in need could be seen in the students. Grains came along in various quantities - rice, wheat, green gram dal and black gram dal - from all the students who wished to see a smile on the face of less privileged children.
Teachers joined hands in this noble endeavour to help the needy people. With their dedicated involvement in the drive, the mission to collect grains became more purposeful and more invigorating than before. Not only students and teachers but also the housekeeping staff donated a variety of grains…which is truly heartening.
Indeed, it is moments like these that convince us that children are truly destiny’s chosen ones… There was a great coordination by staff and teachers to manage this event and a big support from parents who inculcated the value of sharing and helping needy among their children.

When questioned about their inspiration to follow their tradition; they simply said sangeet ; it always touches the heart. They also said that they recognized appreciation for their art in younger generations. Even their international audience savors their music which is evident in their endeavours in 39 countries. It was a privilege to host such connoisseurs in the field of dance and music and we wish them luck for their future.

Headlines Week – Sr. Kg. (6th -10th July, 2015)
The Sr. Kg. children of DPS Bopal Preschool are learning the ropes of reporting!! This activity encourages them to develop the habit of reading the newspaper and also provides them a platform to enhance their oratory skills.
The students came prepared to share some of the current news. It was astonishing to see some of the enthusiastic children moving ahead from the headlines and reading entire news articles. It was simply wonderful to see them showing and discussing their news clippings with the friends
A good activity for confidence building and enhancing their knowledge!
Allotting TV time... All children like to watch tv. But there are certain things that you should bear in mind, while watching tv . GO FOR EDUCATIONAL VALUE- Children love watching cartoon shows. but make sure that you find some time to choose channels that will increase children's knowledge, and have some educational value. DON'T USE TV AS A DIVERSION- - Allot special times for watching TV, and stick to its schedule. SELECT AGE APPROPRIATE CONTENT- always keeps an eye on what children are watching. Most tv's today have the facility to block off certain channels, or to put a child lock on them. It is not safe to give the child remote control to browse tv channels. SIT WITH THEM- it is good to sit with the child while watching tv.You can have chats about the shows the child watches. Ask them good questions about what they like. Always make sure that children have adequate outdoor activities, thereby allowing them to interact and play with other children. Also engage them in activities.
“Leaders are not born, they are created”
The quote itself defines the importance of the medium, the creator who moulds young minds into strong leaders! Such miracle is not a one day achievement it is the grueling efforts that are invested in a child at its school. To see the sense of satisfaction of delivering the best brings a sense of joy to the hearts. Such was the day at DPSEast when the new supreme council stood before all with a promise in their eyes to guard and inspire the school students to take care of the discipline and the honour of the school. The Investiture ceremony 2015-16, showcased the members of Junior as well as senior supreme council ready to take the oath for a new and a promising year ahead. The students’ performance took the hearts away. The students of the school band gave an enthralling performance by creating music from the non musical instruments. The students also presented semi classical form of dance and a contemporary dance with an inspirational message. Their performance contained thrills, determination and pride to be a student of DPSEast. The new team and Student of the Year were honoured by honourable Principal Sir Mr. Hitesh Puri .
We wish the new team best of wishes to deliver their duties with sincerity and honesty.

It was a very informative session. I came to know about the difference in approach required for a competitive exam and board exam
Ms.Anmol Bhatia, ClassXII-B
Mr.Shrikant’s session was good and it stimulated us to be ambitious. But his talk was mainly confined to engineering and medical. It would have been better if he could have given us exposure about various other career fields also.
Ms. Chaitya Shah, Class XII-B
The session gave us useful tips to tackle the exam and exam pressure. I found the session quite good.
Ms.Anagha Chacko, Class XII –A
The session was too engineering oriented. Career in the field of architecture, design, air force… etc was not discussed. The workshop must cater to students aspiring for other career options too. But I liked the tips given by him to prepare for board exam and competitive exam.
Ms.Vrinda Mehta, Class XII-A

Summer time is at time for relaxation and fun. It is the time when time comes to a standstill and we can indulge ourselves in hours of play and entertainment. But this time which is completely our own, hangs heavy on our hands when it is not sprinkled with some measure of fruitful activity. At the summer workshop, students find that they can learn some sport like cricket, basketball, skating or soccer. Enhancing their drawing skills for a short period every day becomes easy at the Art Workshop. To take a picture perfect, many have joined Photography workshop. Making robots cannot be an easy task but it certainly seems so at the Robotics workshop at DPS. Budding authors and poets could enhance their writing skills by attending the language workshop 'Xpress Yourself'.

Blogging was also a medium to connect with like minded people and 'express yourself' as observed by Antara Patel, who already writes a regular blog. The issue of copyright and mentioning sources for borrowed material was also addressed. The importance of the correct use of keywords and labels as well as attractive titles was emphasized. Later, the students who also happened to be avid readers and book lovers, took the opportunity to browse through the book stores and pick up a few books that caught their fancy!

Maharashtra-Gujarat border and surrounding areas.
Their extremely rudimentary wall paintings use a very basic graphic vocabulary: a circle, a triangle and a
square.Their paintings were monosyllabic. The circle and triangle come from their observation of nature, the
circle representing the sun and the moon, the triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees. Only the
square seems to obey a different logic and seems to be a human invention, indicating a sacred enclosure or a
piece of land. So the central motive in each ritual painting is the square, known as the "chauk" or "chaukat",
mostly of two types:
TOPIC: GLOBAL AFFAIRS & OPPORTUNITIES in OP JINDAL UNIVERSITY

reading in different schools took part in this event. I came to know that other schools don't send their
students to participate because of fear that the students may change the school.
It was an exhilarating time for class IV kids as they got an opportunity to stay in the school and bond with

The first thing that comes to mind when we see pink is Women. 1st October was the day when everybody in DPS Bopal was dressed in pink in order to promote the well-being of women.
PINKATHON, which is already known as a 10-kilometer run to spread awareness for breast cancer, has moved a step further by involving schools.

The highlight of the day was RAK- Random Act of Kindness where each mother-daughter duo pledged to work towards a defined act of kindness and to spread it among other women and families through social media.
The underlined idea was ‘A healthy mother makes a healthy family’. While most of the mothers confessed that their own health was their last priority, they accepted the fact that it was time to switch to a healthy lifestyle. They vowed to give at least 15 minutes to themselves and their health. So it’s time we battle this increasing lifestyle disease and inspire everyone around.
