    In a country of 1.39 billion people, 29 states, over 6 lakh villages and cities, 40 ethnic communities, and over 22 major languages, it is not possible to achieve a cleanliness goal overnight. With the aim of keeping the country clean and green, honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi started his Swachh Bharat Abhiyan or Clean India Mission in 2014.

    To further inculcate the importance and values of this cleanliness initiative, he proposed Swachhata Ke Liye Shramdan on October 1, 2023 at 10 a.m. for an hour. Schools, industries, individuals were encouraged to take the small step towards keeping their nation spit-and-span clean by not depending on others, but taking the baton themselves.

    Following the great call, Delhi Public School Aligarh also organized a cleanliness drive with its students and teachers on October 1 to spread the awareness among the youth and also ensure they are responsible citizens of our locality, and nation. The students from various classes ranging from VII to XII and 7 teachers conducted the cleanliness drive in Samridhhi Township near Agra Road in the district of Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh.

The students also spoke to the residents in order to spread the word about how to keep their area clean and beautiful by taking small steps every day.

    The garbage collected was then picked up by the garbage collecting van of Aligarh Municipality. The students not only learnt the importance of cleanliness through this drive, but was also able to educate the people around about its significance.

    The primary objective of this drive was to promote cleanliness. hygiene practices and a healthy environment in public areas such as streets, neighborhoods, parks among others.

  • BOOK FAIR 2023-24
  • “You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy books and that’s kind of the same thing”

    When we talk about shopaholics, we often forget to include the bibliophiles who swarm our houses and localities. In the age of Kindle, audiobooks, podcasts, YouTube videos and many other avenues, the romantic idea of holding a book while sipping into tea or coffee, or sitting in a corner of your cozy bed to finish an entire novel on a rainy afternoon has been reduced to scenes in movies and books. But to our surprise, bibliophiles gathered in large numbers in the Book Fair organized by Delhi Public School Aligarh in collaboration with Scholar Books Club. The fair which was inaugurated by the Principal, Mrs. Arti Jha, the Academic Coordinators, Mr. Intisar Ahmed and Mrs. Shalini Jain along with the President, Head Boy and Head Girl of the school, Anandika Mittal, Sanidhya Khare and Priyanshi Singh, saw book lovers in groups pouncing over their favorite novels, anime and story books.

    The Fair also witnessed a huge selling of self-help and motivational books by Jay Shetty, James Clear, Dale Carnegie among others. Collin Hoover, Harry Potter, Agatha Christie, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Sudha Murthy were some of the all-time favorites among buyers. Not only the students, but enthusiastic parents couldn’t help but splurge on some of the novels and encyclopedias which were up for sale.

    Nicely organized with a great variety of books, this Fair was a gentle reminder to us that even in the age of Kindle, students prefer the touch and smell of books as much as their teachers did years ago. The fair united the students and teachers in one thread where they both shared their love for reading without any boundaries.
