Wealth out of Waste

PUC2 students had participated in an activity “Wealth Out of Waste ” .The objective of the activity was to make effective use of lockdown and destress themselves from the mundane routine.


Budget Presentation:

Upon hearing the word budget several questions may arise in one’s mind like What is a budget? Why do we need it?What is its importance?
 

The answer to these questions can be found in this presentation that provides information relating to taxes and budget with its importance and features. This presentation is an effort by Riya K. and Aadhya Soni of PUC1 Commerce , Deens PU college with hopes to clear any doubts one may have with reference to the budget.


Auxiliary activities within the curriculum:

The College offers opportunities, within the curriculum, (project-based learning, newspaper review, Case studies, Guest lectures etc), through academic competitions within the campus- Stock exchange simulation, MUN, Debates etc.


Interschool competitions:

We also encourage students to participate in n outside through interschool competitions, MUN’s, quizzes, science fairs and District level competitions which are organised for academic and non-academic competitions for a range of activities like music, dance, yoga, art, craft, drama and theatre, quiz, basketball, cricket, football and athletics.


Student representative board

At Deens College, we empower students with additional responsibilities, thereby helping them to overcome their fears and emerge as leaders. Being a leader is not about being liked, it’s about doing what is right.  It is rightly said that “a leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.

Each academic session has an elected Student representative and class representatives who organise events and assemblies within and outside college.


Assemblies :

The Deens College assemblies are often much more than a regular morning gathering of prayer and news reading. Our assemblies offer an opportunity for every child to come up and address the gathering atleast once a year. Assemblies have values presented from stories and each class presents a program on festivals like Independence day, Dushera and Christmas. Students pick a topic they are passionate about and present a student talk.

Every Year has a theme: This year its FIT DEENS (Mental, Physical and Environmentally) : On a subtle but powerful level the reiteration of the theme value is a reminder of its importance of each individual pupil including their individual thoughts and abilities. Overall the assembly helps student start the day with some positive note.


Life Skill Activities :

Every class has a life skill period every week. Here the class teacher/ Career or Student counsellor or mentor teacher facilitates a discussion or activity to enhance an age appropriate life skill. They include work experience and entrepreneurial activities, reflection exercises, image workshops on etiquette, Emergency and disaster relief,, environmentally sensitive topics segregation of waste, etc..

Assemblies :

The Deens school assemblies are often much more than a regular morning gathering of prayer and news reading. Our School assemblies offer an opportunity for every child to come up and address the gathering atleast once a year. The KiDeens Assemblies have values presented from stories and each class presents an asembly on festivals like Independence day, Dushera and Christmas. Senior students pick a topic they are passionate about and present a student talk. Assemblies are hosted both gradewise and house wise.

Each grade presents a special assembly on a topic with a song, skit and sometimes a dance numbers for its grade students attended by the parents. Here the focus is on values ( each month is assigned one) June is conformity, followed by honesty, respect, courtesy , hard work , attitude etc..The practice of reflection and spelling out these values  helps students  focus upon the positive aspects of themselves that they can value and build on.

On a subtle but powerful level the reiteration of the the theme value is a reminder of its importance of each individual pupil including their individual thoughts and abilities.Overall the assembly helps children start the day with some positive note.
