The Holistic approach
In creating a learning atmosphere that nurtures a child’s talents, DYPIS offers a variety of co-curricular activities:
- Sports Programmes
- Clubs and Activities
1 Sports Programmes
The school aims to develop control, co-ordination and mastery of the body, learnt through action, sensation and observation. Opportunities are provided to grow and develop through dance, athletics, games and indoor, outdoor and adventurous activities.
The children are encouraged to be spontaneously creative, using a variety of media and techniques in art and craftwork. An awareness of colour, shape, balance, focus and proportion are developed alongside the use of symbols to convey ideas and feelings. The study of a wide range of artists, craftspeople and designers complements this work.
The teaching of music is based upon the fact that it is a creative and social art to be enjoyed. Children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening, singing, movement and dance
This subject is used across the curriculum, to stimulate interest and to develop understanding and empathy in a variety of situations. Drama is a useful and versatile tool in the development of language and in building confidence. School plays and productions, allow the children to gain a sense of audience for the skills they have acquired.
3 Clubs and activities
Film animation technology has come a long way since the early days of hand-drawn cartoons. This club has students learning the basic techniques used by animators to bring characters to life. In order for this technology, to reach its full potential, a key starting point still needs to be the animator's natural creative ability and learnt skill.
The students in this club learn to identify, investigate, and validate the problem, and ultimately craft, design, test and present the solution. The interested members in this club is quite a number to boast.
This activity is fun-filled and full of energy where dancers work together to synchronize each movement in perfect alignment. It is known for its unique, athletic style and is enjoyed socially and competitively worldwide. This activity has tudents learning different dance styles every year….like Ball-room dance forms (Waltz and Jive), Bboying, Bgirling and Hip-hop.
The activity is lead by a group of creative students who aspire to be tomorrow's musicians and vocalists. They enjoy different genres of music and are ever ready to experiment their talent.
- Literary and Debating Club
The students of this club learn to think about an author's purpose, to develop questions which can be approached from multiple perspectives, and to value the richness of the group's thinking. The goal of this club is to provide a setting in which students can engage with a text in a community of readers who value complex, rich thinking.
The primary mission of the Eco Club is to motivate and sensitize the students to keep their surroundings green and clean and also to educate them to create awareness amongst public and gather information on bio-diversity.
Physical activity and fitness strongly correlate to child and adolescent health. Hence the members of this club stress on physical exercises to promote a cohesive, fun environment because they believe, their bodies should feel right to make their minds work right.
Cooking, without flame, can be real fun! The students of this club happily dish up exciting delicacies without even have to turn on the burner and use some fuel. Saving non-renewable source of energy is an art too!
