The joy of recalling memories of a carefree childhood can only be experienced, not expressed.
My happiest memories of D.P.S. are the ones of junior school days. There a lush green garden, a pond full of lotus with a wooden barricade which has now been replaced by the work experience block and hostel.
The valuable contribution to the culture and education in junior school were provided by Mrs. Kapadia, Mrs. Chopra, Mrs. Topa, Mrs. Messy, Miss Mukerjee, Mr. Kovalker, The plays, put up by D.P.S. Mathura Road were quite popular all over Delhi and helped to enhance the school’s prestige.
I still recall the long flowing black gowns that were given to the scholars which they wore during school hours making them look very distinguished. There was a great emphasis on over all personality development. Sports and activities were stressed on. I still remember the times when the classes were allowed to go to the field to watch a match between DPS and Modern School. The whole school would go into a frenzy whenever ever a match took place.
It was because of the able administration of Mr. Din Dayal with valuable contributions from his staff members like, Mrs. Nakra, Mrs, P. Madam, Mrs. Subbarayan, Mrs. Jeet, Mrs. Sanyal, Mr. I.D. Mathur, Mrs. Wadhwani. DPS Mathura Road is the Mother School. It has come a long way and will go a long way.
