At DIS we practice 'student centered approach', where teaching for understanding is coupled with a stimulating and varied curriculum. To inculcate in our students a passion for learning and achievement, we have various clubs and societies of which they can become members. We believe that all our students are unique individuals, with equal potential to make a positive contribution to the school. Our goal is to instil an enthusiasm for lifelong learning. Students under the guidance of a faculty member run their own clubs and organize activities, depending on their interests. They have the option to choose from G.K. Club, Literary Club, Eco Club, Social Service- Interact Club, Debating Club, Photography Club etc .
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people ages 14 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.
Doon International School's students are active members of the club and each year, they help complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill.
Through these efforts, our school's Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of:
- Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
- Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
- Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
- Advancing international understanding and goodwill
Eco clubThe Eco Club at DIS is a means by which the students are empowered to participate and take up meaningful environmental activities and projects. It is a forum through which students can reach out to influence and engage their parents and neighbourhood communities to promote sound environmental behaviour. Our Eco Club also empowers students to explore environmental concepts and actions beyond the confines of a syllabi of environment education. The school's Eco Club is abuzz with activities like awareness drives, tree plantation drives, cleanliness drives and recycling projects etc.
GK clubThe School's G.K Club strives to increase the knowledge of the students in various subjects and current affairs. The club also trains them to excel in various inter-school quiz competitions as well as competitive exams. DIS's coveted Quiz Team has won a number of prestigious Quiz Competitions at the State as well as at the National level.
Debating SocietyThe school's Debating Society grooms students for the purpose of debate and improvement in extemporaneous speaking. The club not only prepares students for public speaking and inter-school competitions but also deliberates discussions on current issues of national and international importance to raise students' awareness levels and to inculcate in them skills such as critical thinking and qualities of self-confidence.
Photography clubA picture speaks a thousand words. Students in the Photography Club are taught the art and technique of good photography. The objective here is to teach them the nuances of focus, shutter speed, aperture etc. besides learning how to define objects, distance, angles, color combinations, light and diffusion, size and coverage, vantage positioning and artistic viewpoints. We have a good number of 'picture perfect' photographs in the making
