It is a forgone conclusion that evolution and adaptation are the hall marks of true education and especially so in the present times. The outbreak of the Corona Pandemic in March 2020 has radically changed this perception. It has heralded a sea change in the way we look at life and the world. The grit and determination of man have truly been tested to the apex level. When pushed against the wall, one has no option but to find foothold in order to not only survive but also to rise above the precarious situation. Education today has become online! Online classes became the order of the day. With necessity came the resilience and adaptation of the teacher fraternity to the increasing demands of all stake holders.
We are proud to state that DSE has been one of the pioneer institutions to accept and forge ahead with online teaching. What started out as mere classroom lessons to impart academic learning quickly spread to involve all the curricular, extracurricular and co-curricular activities of the school. With every passing day, something new, something creative is learnt and imbibed through online classes. The adage ‘creativity is contagious, pass it on’ was truly epitomised by both the students and teachers.
We were amazed at the role essayed by the students that of inventing, experimenting, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and at the same time having fun! As we are reaching the end of this tumultuous academic year, the end result of these ‘creators’ in ensuring that learning is taken beyond the four walls of the classroom, skyrocketed our expectations.
DSE has evolved brilliantly to accept the changing scenario and to become super-efficient at confronting the situation. My total appreciation to the teachers who have put aside all their misgivings and rising to the occasion beyond everybody’s imagination all the while bearing in mind the fulfilment of the Vision and Mission of the school.
