Students’ Social Responsibility


At DLF Public School, we measure success in terms of what our students do out of their lives, and in terms of their usefulness to others. The school, in year 2015-16, drove each of its Delfites towards a higher and greater good: the public interest. Many opportunities were given to the Delfites so that they can themselves exercise their power to bring change and better the world around them. The theme ‘Be the Change’ cascaded down at each level through a series of thoughtful events and campaigns in the domains of Environment, Science, Social responsibility, and Technology engaging students into meaningful real life projects that can better the world. We endeavor to enable in every Delfite an awareness and appreciation of NOT ONLY their RIGHTS but their DUTY equally.

Student Social Responsibility: A Calling!

Indeed it’s a calling for our students and teachers as it is very much part of their growing up process. The humane environment that is, tangibly or intangibly, built around every Delfite at school drives him to do more to the society than the society does for him/her. Surrounds Delfites with the thought that ‘it’s more important to be ‘good’ than just being ‘smart’! For us, these small intangible achievements are dear as much as those shared as tangible success stories! A Glimpse into the humane core of our Delfites….

Individual achievement does not matter unless it is of use to others. Mrs. Seema Jerath, Principal
