“Victory is in the quality of competition, not the final score.”
Co-curricular activities bring out the linguistic, logical-mathematical, intra & interpersonal, naturalistic, existential and spatial-visual talents of an individual student. These activities serve to complement the efforts by the teachers who diligently bolster and foster the inherent talents of the student.
Delhi Public School, Pune offers a gamut of sporting and non-sporting activities to the students. Besides the regular curriculum, a lot of emphasis is laid on co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Each and every co-curricular activity has been carefully selected and introduced into the school prospectus after guaranteeing that the teachers/coaches/trainers are of unimpeachable integrity and are capable of performing the multi-dimensional functions that the co-curricular activity entails. The co-curricular activities may be classified as intra-school, inter-school and holistic activities. In addition to the co-curricular activities, the school has introduced Clubs that cater to the specific interests of individual students of the school.
The co-curricular programme is implemented through Thursday Activities and SUPW sessions which are held every Wednesday. Apart from these, various other on-and off-campus programmes like Night Camp, excursions and trips, and inter- and intra-school competitions are also organized and conducted by experts. In order to encourage and inspire students, interactive sessions are conducted by visiting faculties, celebrated artists, scientists, and thinkers throughout the year. We have also adopted Financial Literacy Programme that aims to foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial skills to link education to practical and contextual knowledge.

It is aimed at providing students a practical hands-on approach to the real world which awaits them once they step-out of the safe cocoon of the school life.
