We recognise the importance of meeting the unique learning needs of every child by providing a safe, supportive and respectful environment. Through individualised attention that appreciates children's learning styles and differing abilities, by helping them cope with emotional challenges and by providing them guidance to select higher education pathways, we work for their well-being, within the school and beyond.
Our student care team, comprising qualified professionals, work with class teachers and parents to provide appropriate support, enabling students to cope with academic demands and challenges, and manage them in constructive and creative ways. Wherever required, the student care team consults with outside therapists and educational psychologists in evaluating or addressing student needs.
At DHURVI we emphasise helping students develop essential life skills so that they are better prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in life. All students engage in an active, planned life skills programme.
A holistic approach to teaching and learning is important for the physical, emotional, intellectual, creative, spiritual and social well-being of children, and to develop them as well-rounded individuals. At DHURVI , we lay emphasis on experiential and exploratory methods of learning, well beyond the classroom, as well as encouraging the appreciation and practice of our school's values and attributes.
We strive to ensure that holistic approaches to teaching and learning are achieved in multiple ways - ongoing review of curricula, introduction of new subjects, the breadth of sports and co-curricular activities, and the regular upgrading of infrastructural facilities and resources.
In the classroom, students present their work by way of presentations, role plays, small skits and impromptu debates. The students have many out-of-classroom activities and experiences such as Theatre, Photography, Film appreciation, Music, Robotics, Football, Cricket, Tennis, Basketball, Taekwondo, Kabaddi, Badminton, Volleyball and many more. Community Service helps sensitize children to the values of being compassionate about the needs of the less-privileged.
The higher education pursuits and career choices of our alumni in diverse domains and sectors, including venturing as social entrepreneurs, creative artists and sportspersons, are a testament to our emphasis on providing children a holistic education.
Experiential learning is a vital element of student life at DHURVI. A wide range of opportunities outside of the classroom provide real-life experiences and challenges for students. We foster the interests of each child and help them realise their full potential in multiple ways. The activities offered are also aimed at building their social and life skills.
The DHURVI co-curricular programme provides enriching opportunities beyond the classroom for our students to pursue their areas of passion, explore their creative side and enhance their inherent competencies and leadership skills. Students are able to choose from an array of activities: Music, Dance, Drama, E-Magazine (Perspective), Scrabble, Quiz, Cooking, Art Animation, Pottery, Calligraphy and Wood Work. The School also offers students a wide range of clubs, such as Film Appreciation, Science, Debate, Robotics, School Magazine (DHURMILA) and Photography. Such activities and interactions with experts from different fields help our students gain a glimpse of professions related to their area of interest.
DHURVI students also engage in out-of-school activities where they simulate real-life situations, develop leadership skills and gain experience of volunteering for various community service activities.
Participating in several District and State Level Activity enables our students to gain organisational and management experience, which develops their skills in field trips, conferences, service activities and exchange programmes, preparing them for their future roles as responsible citizens
With globalisation making the lines between national borders and cultures increasingly supple, the commitment to accommodate a plurality of voices - be it in the classroom, in action or through perspectives - becomes imperative. The DHURVI philosophy is forged around this axiom of internationalism. The ideals of internationalism are aligned with the international context of our curriculum, our faculty, the student body, discussions within classrooms, cultural exchanges, that promote a sensitive understanding of world affairs. Our curriculum encourages students to think globally, appreciate differing points of view and understand that the world is a complex, changing place.
A key feature of DHURVI education is providing an enduring learning experience to instil the values of caring, compassion and empathy in students. These values lie at the heart of the DHURVI service learning activities and equip students with the knowledge and skills to bring about positive social change.
Students from Class III onwards are involved in community service, with the aim of achieving three primary goals - AWARENESS, ACTION and ADVOCACY. The age-appropriate local, national and international service projects and activities involve planning, action, review and reflection, which create invaluable life experiences. These expose children to purposeful civic learning and to the values of democratic processes and social responsibility.
A three-pronged approach forms the basis of DHURVI Community Service programme: the DHURVI Education to Poor Child Project, Through these, students from lower section of the society get opportunities to get admission in DHURVI and get their future secured. The village projects involve getting back the students to school who are working to build schools, roads, houses and toilet blocks in villages and are running their family.
Built on the three pillars of Infrastructure, Education and Empowerment, the DHURVI-initiated Village Project ‘Educating Rural India’ is a reflection of the DHURVI ethos of giving back to the community.
Service Learning creates the opportunity for purposeful civic learning. Active community service helps students define for themselves what it means to participate in a democratic society and deepens their understanding of individual leadership and social responsibility. Interactions with the community leads to new perspectives and more positive lifestyle choices and behaviour. Our students evolve as reflective thinkers by applying academic learning to real human needs.
Our K-10 curriculum uses a variety of engaging teaching and learning methodologies that challenge and motivate learners to excel. It focuses on nurturing in them knowledge and skills essential for success in the 21st century.
Inquiry-based and application-oriented approaches across all subjects and age groups enable students to learn about and respect a range of ideas, independently and collaboratively with others. It helps them develop new perspectives and take responsibility for their learning.
The school provides professional development opportunities for teachers by way of participation in workshops and seminars, as well as exchange programmes with other affiliated schools. Our teachers make use of flipped classrooms, project-based learning, brainstorming, role play, interactive lab experiments and self and peer evaluation, to make learning more engaging and effective.
