Interaction with DRV DAV Centenary Public School students and faculty members

December 7th, 2022

Today, I had the opportunity interact with the Teachers and Students of DRV DAV Centenary Public School, Phillaur in Punjab. A premier, CBSE board institution in the Doaba region of Punjab. The school is led by a dynamic principal Mr. Yogesh Gambhir who is driving the efforts to inculcate strong values combining with academics and extra-curricular activities in children. He is leading from the top with the team of school teachers who are putting every effort to make students into a self-reliant and independent citizen.

The school is located in semi urban area, sprawling over nine acres of land. The school is known for inimitable achievements in academic, sports and co-curricular activities which has made the DAV College Managing Committee, New Delhi ranked it in the “VERY GOOD CATEGORY” in X Std. and in XII standard (session 2019-20). The school is ranked in “OUTSTANDING CATEGORY”. The school is a member of International Association of Schools Educating for Unity and Peace(IASEP),USO, Face to Faith, British Council, NPSC.

My visit to India always includes few presentations to universities, colleges and schools. The lecture today was addressed to students and faculty members of the school. Based on my book, “My Experiments with Innovation,” I presented on “How to achieve your goals faster and Career Options.”
