“I am not interested in power for power’s sake,but I’m interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.”
At Deens, 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.
The School offers opportunities, within the curriculum, for students to participate in a range of activities like music, dance, yoga, art, craft, drama and theatre, quiz, basketball, cricket, football and athletics.
On entry into grade 1, all students become members of a House to foster a spirit of leadership, cooperation, mutual understanding, tolerance and self-reliance.
Various inter-house activities are organised to build team spirit. The House system gives opportunities to students to participate in inter-house competitions. Each House is led by a House Mistress who oversees the well-being and social development of members of the House. The four Houses have Latin names, each indicating qualities to be valued:–
- Flavus (yellow-truth)
- Rubrus (red-strength)
- Caeruleus (blue-integrity)
- Prasinus (green-valour)
The house colours have been derived from the Latin names of slightly amalgamated strong colours each of which signify a strong emotion that links it into our school’s value system. We often them incorporate them into our theme based Sports Events. Various inter-house activities are organised to build team spirit.
