CARNIVAL WITH A CAUSE
The much awaited ‘Carnival with a Cause’ orgainsed by DPS International, Gurgaon was held on December 10, 2016 in the school premises. The funds raised in this carnival support the Aliya Trust which was established by the benevolent RJ Corp group under the patronage of Ms Devyani Jaipuria, Pro Vice Chairperson, DPS International, with a vision to provide financial and medical assistance to underprivileged children who have limited or no means to fight their illness. Ms Dhara Jaipuria, Chairperson on board of RJ Corp and member of the DPSI Managing Committee, inaugurated the carnival and her presence along with Ms Aditi Misra, Principal DPS Sector 45, was motivating for the entire DPSI family.The carnival brought the whole school community together as there was something for everyone. In an endeavour to encourage the school community to adopt environmentally friendly practices ‘Green Games’ and ‘Green Activities’ were organised. One such activity was a ‘Parade for a Cause’ where parents and their wards took to the ramp in attires made out of recycled material, showcasing their creativity along with exceptional enthusiasm. This event was judged by Ms Devyani Jaipuria and the winners walked away with delicious food hampers. DPSI students put up a rousing performance in the ‘nukkad natak’ centred around a eco-friendly theme. The school grounds pulsated with scintillating music and a lively crowd. The perfect winter sunshine added to the relaxed yet charged-with-excitement atmosphere where the parents, grandparents and students alike could be seen letting their hair down for a day. An array of edible delights, swings and rides, musical performances, street plays, variety of stalls, raffle draws with exciting prizes ensured all had a good time. The zest and zeal exhibited by an enthusiastic crowd of visitors and participants made the Winter Carnival 2016 at DPSI a memorable one.
