The School has consciously put in place a special International Policy. It hopes it will be its beacon in fostering a better relationship with international peers, and make both students and teachers better and worthier citizens of the world.
Besides universal values, we, at DLF Public School, are very innovatively trying to instill in our children a GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING and through it the concept of global citizenship.
“Global understanding is about creating a love for other human beings and all things living, helping learners realize the preciousness of life and taking them beyond the narrow confines of caste, religion, country and colour. It is about instilling in them the fundamental recognition that we are part of one global ethos; the concept of Vasudev Katumbkam- the world as one large family”.
The School intends to revisit this Policy every two years to maintain its edge and relevance in a fast changing world.
The objectives of our International Policy are to inspire our young global citizens in the making to want to learn more about the world and to ensure that our learners posses:
- An understanding of the other people and having empathy for them
- Act fairly in their choices, their decisions, and their words
- Believe that they are just as important as everyone else
- Believe that all people are equal, and that no groups or individuals are superior or inferior to others
- Accept differences and not reacting with hostility to people who are different from them
- Are willing to help and cooperate with others
- Have their own ideas and express them, at the same time, being open to changing them if they are proved wrong
