Education essentially consists of two components, Academic education and Value education. While academic education is good for one to attain a good “standard of living”, value education is vital for one to achieve a good “standard of life” meaning to live a humane and meaningful life.
The schools are taking care of the academic part and for value education, children learn by observing family role models and teachers. We feel that there is an urgent need to work on this element so that we are able to develop social character of a child.
We at DGS undertake various initiatives at community service level where in children visit nearby villages or under-privileged areas for creating awareness on various aspects of living. Creating awareness about cleanliness and hygiene has been top on our priority. Students are also encouraged to motivate in their neighborhood to help one illiterate to take up books and help them to reach basic literate levels.
