DPS Whitefield is built upon a vast campus of 6 acres of land comprising two magnificent blocks. The blocks are dedicated to pre-primary and primary classes respectively.
The school is equipped with a professional ground with a Cricket pitch, Football field, Volleyball and Basketball court.
The infrastructure also includes facilities of computer labs, science labs, library and canteen. The environmental friendly architecture of DPS Whitefield has won an International award at Singapore for the “Best Design”.
In the words of Ms. Annabelle Manwaring, the Pro vice Chairman – “More than focusing on the building, we wanted to breathe life into the campus. It is a place for children to celebrate, so we wanted the school to reflect the spirit”.
On winning the award, Ms. Annabelle Manwaring said, “We were ecstatic when they mentioned our school’s name for the award. It was such a proud moment for us that we could represent the country in such a global event”.
For the convenience of working parents, DPS Whitefield offers Day Care facilities at the Mallasandra and the Hagadur campus. Children at the Day Care are taken care of by trained personnel who execute a planned sequence of activities and experiences for the little ones in a safe and comfortable environment. The well -planned curriculum keeps the children meaningfully engaged while giving them the space and time to rest and relax. Snack time, storytelling, indoor and outdoor games and sleep time are well coordinated to give the children the sense and feel of being at home. At Mallasandra, the day care children can avail the school transport and they leave the campus along with the rest of the school children at 2:00 PM. Whereas, the day care facility at Hagadur campus extends to 6:00 PM and parents are required to pick up their children from the school.
The safety and security of the children is our top concern when the children our on campus and in the buses. To cater to this, Nine point programme/Action to be taken for safeguarding the children, released by the Bangalore city Commissioner on 26.07.2014 has been implemented in the school. A Child Safety committee has also been set up in the school.
CCTV cameras have been installed in all prime locations and cover almost all areas of the school. Security personnel have been stationed at the main entrance and the entrances of both the blocks. The entry and exits of parents and others is strictly checked and visitor’s cards issued before allowing them into the campus.
The buses are equipped with GPRS and CCTV cameras. A lady care is deployed in every bus for the safety of the children.
Vigilance officers sit in all corridors monitoring the movement of children at all hours.
Apart from the overall safety, the school has taken great care to provide pure drinking water. Water dispensers with RO treated water are placed at numerous locations for easy accessibility to children and staff.
In a fast changing socio-economic situation, choosing the right career is a daunting task for students. At DPS we value the future of each of our students and to help them match their skills, strengths and abilities with appropriate career and education options, career counselling sessions are organized by the school wherein industry experts from various professions provide the right direction. Psychometric tests are conducted to help students understand their inherent abilities and correlate them to new age careers.
Besides career counselling, DPS has a school counsellor who addresses the issues that students face in their personal lives. The counsellor aids students to overcome problems like peer pressure, bullying, low self-esteem and a plethora of other issues and help them learn to live in peace and harmony with others in the school community.
