Annual Events

Leadership Days – Inspired through The Leader In Me Program, Leadership Days provide an avenue for students to gain confidence and improve social interaction while polishing presentation skills and maturing their thinking. Parents join in with song renditions and discuss their child’s ‘data note book’ which logs their child’s character growth in school. Held twice a year, Leadership Days truly electrify the school atmosphere.

Model United Nations Conference (MUN) – The MUN is organized by secondary students for students themselves. School is a flurry of activity the entire week before the official conference and  students do a great deal of research to provide an international flavor to the event. The official protocols to be observed, dress code and documentation is truly impressive.  It is a much sought after event at Sri Dasmesh and students then ‘graduate’ to participate in the international World Scholars Cup annually.

Camp facilitators and teachers lead students to complete a variety of mental & physical challenges within limited time frames, nurturing teamwork, building confidence, harnessing leadership skills and improving overall fitness.

Library Fest – A day event in school where library books are on exhibition on the school courtyard and students walk around sharing excerpts from a book they are reading. We found this to a great way to introduce books to students and encourage the reading habit.
