It is a unique venture of DLPS in association with ASSET (Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing). AQAD measures how well a student has understood concepts. One Question on either of the subjects is given to the students of classes III – IX. The students write their answers on chits of paper and drop it in the AQAD Answer Box. The Lucky Draw of the correct answers is taken out at the end of the day and one winner from each class is recognized. The Delfites attempting regularly and most appropriately are duly awarded by the school.
Activity-oriented learning is integrally threaded in the DLPS curriculum and the entire learning process is highly exciting, challenging as well as playful. It directs student attention to rich and profound ideas, and ensures grounding in what matters most in each topic and discipline. The teachers have developed various activities /games to be played with/without material to instill better learning. For games with play material, there are over 450 Activity kits in the school, ONE for every FOUR children and children enjoy and learn at the same time. The teachers also use PEC cards to integrate physical development of students with mental growth.
21st century global education through Virtual International Meets has found significant place at DLPS. In the new session, the school has organized multiple Video- Conferencing sessions with students from various countries as Pakistan, Scotland, Lebanon, UK, New York and more, where children have learnt to respect each other’s views while retaining their own stand.
In an attempt to enhance the confidence as well as speaking skills of the students, regular ‘Show-n-Tell’ are organized. Little Kids share anything they like, be it their proud possessions, strengths, or ideas, with the class describing its various attributes.
