Foreign tongues for DPS students

As Delhi Public School (DPS)-Dhanbad gears up for its two-day silver jubilee celebrations from Friday, principal K.B. Bhargava spoke of plans to launch courses in three languages and other improvements in infrastructure.

Speaking to mediapersons on Wednesday, Bhargava said they would soon launch courses in German, French and Chinese from the 2014-15 session.

“These courses will be available for students of classes III-X. These will be optional courses and students pursuing them will have to pay an additional amount in excess of the regular fee,” he added.

The principal further said that they were in talks with teachers engaged in conducting language courses in Indian School of Mines (ISM).

“If things go according to plans, we will launch the courses at the beginning of the next session,” said Bhargava.

He added that language classes would be held within regular school schedule. The fee and timing of the courses are yet to be decided. Bhargava also said they were planning to introduce a couple of vocational courses for Class XI students and upgrade infrastructure.

As for the silver jubilee celebrations, the principal said the grand event would be organised at ISM’s Penman Auditorium. “Governor Syed Ahmed will grace the occasion as chief guest. He will also inaugurate a three-day science exhibition on the school campus,” he said.

The Dhanbad cradle had started 25 years ago with 217 students and 17 teachers.
