The Student Council was established to provide students with the voice and choice to create a mind-set of self-direction and a powerful student-centric movement. Members have the opportunity to hone their intrapersonal and interpersonal skills and learn about the ethics of fair governance and the essence of democracy. Some of the key skills that they develop include reflection, responsibility for oneself and others, teamwork, valuing multiple perspectives and leadership.
The Student Council consists of a Primary Student Council (Grades 3 and 4) and Secondary Student Council (Grades 9 and 10) with 12 members respectively on each council. These council members are democratically elected by their fellow students, teachers, principal and vice-principal based on the parameters of integrity, leadership and academic achievement. The Student Council is led by the School Captain (Head Girl), School Vice-Captain (Assistant Head Girl), Sports Captain, Assistant Sport Captain, House Captains and Assistant House Captains.
DJG follows the traditional methodology of apportioning pupils into smaller groups, known as houses, creating smaller communities within the wider school community. This enables the students to demonstrate and develop social values and team spirit.
Each house's name is inspired by various eminent personalities in India. The four houses have a symbol, name and colour – Mahatma Gandhi House (Yellow), Mother Teresa House (Blue), A.P.J. Abdul Kalam House (Red) and Rabindranath Tagore House (Green). Furthermore, each house is represented by the House Captain and led by the House Mistress (Teacher).
Every child from Grade 1 onwards is assigned to one of the houses and remains in the same house throughout her school life. The students contribute to their house by participating in various inter-house competitions in sports, cultural and academic related activities throughout the year.
At DJG we firmly believe that parents play a pivotal role in the functioning of a school and the overall development of their children.
Parents of all sections are offered a variety of opportunities to participate in school activities. Parents are encouraged to volunteer their time and support the school to facilitate their child’s overall development. Parental attendance on Open Days and Parent Teacher Meetings (PTMs) is compulsory.
The school also seeks parental involvement through its Parent Teachers Association (PTA).
The PTA comprises of parents from the Primary and Secondary Sections who are elected under the guidelines of the State Education Department.
The PTA has one parent and one teacher as representatives of each grade. PTA elections are conducted at the beginning of each academic year. Thus, the school encourages an on-going partnership with parents to ensure the smooth functioning of its operations and support to the school community.
The School remains accessible to former students and encourages them to participate in the School activities.
