Delighted to be in this school, in such a splendid setting - and to see the talents of the children, engage with them and be stimulated by their spirit. Thanks for the warm welcome and all the best for the future.

On September 23rd, at DPS Srinagar, we had an important visit from the Honourable Minister of State for Human Resource and Development, Mr. Shashi Tharoor.
Mr. Tharoor was welcomed with the traditional essence “Izband Soz”, symbolizing good omen. He was also showered with Almonds and Shereen sweets. He took a round of the school library and signed his books. The cultural function began with the Prayer Song followed by a welcome address by Iftikhar, the Head Boy, Rouf dance and a song by the school choir. He was delighted to see the talent of young children. A Question hour session with Grade XI and XII was a great exposure for the students. The programme concluded with Vote of Thanks by Hazika, the Head Girl of the school.
