We at DPS Greater Faridabad firmly believe in being extraordinary together rather than being ordinary apart. With the vision and mission of inculcating team spirit and encourage students to be a productive member of a team, DPS Greater Faridabad ideated a unique collaborative learning activity SITASH (Share Ideas Together and Soar High). Our school formed a fruitful association with Chirec International School, Hyderabad for the same. SITASH, for the students of classes 3 and 4 was formally inaugurated on 16th July 2021, over Zoom platform.
The inaugural session commenced with the digital lamp lighting. A brief introduction of the programme ‘SITASH’ was given by Ms Roma Wanchoo.
