MY FIRST CERTIFICATE
I am so happy because I got a certificate for coming first in Fine Arts. I got the certificate from my drawing teacher. My friends were very happy. They said to me, “You are the best in drawing.” My family members were very happy as well. My grandfather gave me basketball and a pencil box as gift. My brother bought me an ice- cream and my father took me for a movie.
In the school morning assembly I was called to go up on the stage and show my certificate to Principal ma’am, teachers and all the students present there. Everyone clapped for me. I was again very happy.
MY EXPERIENCE AT SCHOOL
The school is such a sweet heaven on earth that prepares the small minds for great tasks. The school provides education to live better and make progress for tomorrow. Not only does it provide education but it is a tool of character building of a nation. The good schools are true assets of a nation. I am blessed to study in such a great school. My school is the best school in our entire city.
I study in one of the best schools of our city, DELHI PUBLIC SCHOOL NORTH KOLKATA. It has a big and beautiful building that looks shiny from far away.
I reach school on time. I come to school with other friends of mine. We happily enter into the schools with great confidence. We take part in school assembly and then we move into our classrooms. As I enter into my classroom I feel quite relaxed.
Our Class teacher greets us daily and asks about us. She is quite cool and kind human. She entertains us along with teaching her subject. We learn a lot of things like disciple, self help, confidence and cooperation here.
My school has the best available facilities like playground, a library, science labs, and a great computer lab. The library of our school is very big and has the books for all students.
We take part in all school activities like singing, dancing, quiz competition, writing competition, debate competition and others. In fact, it is the result of the hard work done by our teachers.
The good schools are the real blessing of God. They serve the nation. They prepare the way for national progress. It is blessing that our country has so many great schools. I feel myself proud of studying here in this school. I hope I will brighten the name of my country and my school.

The universal and unique possibilities of individuals were thoroughly explained.

Each group was given one Universal Possibility to present before others. After some preparation the presentations started. All the groups presented as good as possible.

A BUzz TO SOUTH POINT SCHOOL
The honour to represent Delhi Public School North Kolkata on the grounds of South Point High School is our dream come true. Our director Mr Goutam sir , our dance choreographer Mrs Udita ma’am and our assistant teacher Saswati ma’am, not only made us realize the importance of the play for our school but also the importance of the environment we are living in is dying out slowly. Also to realize this fact of coming destruction, we held a play “the life of seed”to convey the message to people. So here all it starts …..
Our director held an audition of the characters required for the play. He recorded the names of the participants and handed over the script to us.We started our rehearsals and continued for couple of days. The main idea of the play was to bring our those lost positivity like hope, light, and rhythm and motivate our motherly earth, air and water… our assistant teacher selected two students, Soham and Ankita who would control the lightings and set ups. They both made us rectify the points we were lagging behind .They kept on correcting us during the rehearsals.
On 8th may we had our stage rehearsals in south point high school .We were allotted one and half hour for our rehearsals. We rehearsed and we rectified our mistakes and practised the play again after going back to our school and we had a stay back till 5 in the afternoon. We practised and sir made some required changes needed in the play .Our sir also discussed about different things we had to keep in our mind like our voice should be audible through the hanging microphones, the words shouldn’t overlap, the dialogue should go slow so that we don’t finish the play before 20 minutes .But among all of these hurdles our teachers kept on supporting us which helped us gain our confidence.
On 9th May we came to our school and our teachers helped us to put our costumes. Then there was a make-up artist who did our make-up. After putting our costumes and make up on, we rehearsed for the one last time. We got on to the school bus and reached south point high school. A prefect of south point high school showed us to our green room. Soham and Ankita took our dialogue rehearsals again in the green room. We were called upon by the prefects and we went to the back stage. After an announcement we started our play. Unfortunately our play ended in 18 minutes which did not meet the criteria of finishing the play in approximately 20 minutes. After our performance we left the green room and while moving back to the bus we got our participating certificates and got food packets. We stayed there for a while and then boarded the school bus with the props.Udita ma’am in the programtill the end for the results. At last heritage school went the first prize and Gokhel school won the second prize .Even if we didn’t get any prize but we got to experience some true forms of sheer hard work as well as team work which will lead us to the brighter future of Delhi Public School North Kolkata.
Exuberance and Enigma
Kalakosh the annual school fest of South Point High School was a huge success like every time. Like every other participating school, Delhi Public School North Kolkata, had taken part in the event and was appreciated by all. Our participants of Satrangi, the inter school singing competition, witnessed some beautiful composition from different schools, which not only set the energy but mesmerised us all. Around eight schools from different parts of the city had competed against each other. The event had a preliminary round, followed by the three segments, TARANG, TARANNUM, and TERE SUR AUR MERE GEET. Our school had excelled graciously in the preliminary round, as held on the 22nd of April 2019. The song “Papa kehte hain” stole everyone’s heart in the prelims.
On the final day of the event (7/5/2019) we witnessed a whole round of appreciation and applause. As we all say, “Participation is more important than winning” we the students of Delhi Public North Kolkata, not just participated, but won hearts too. A standing ovation by the judges Kalyan Sen Barat and Chandrabali Rudra., and the entire crowd of the auditorium made our day. Though our school didn’t manage to bag a position in the competition, but we did manage to be remembered by all. The song “Amar swadh na mitilo” by Hemanta Mukhopadhyay though, did not carry us to the winner’s desk, but made us proud, as we put our best efforts, only to win hearts. The event took place at G.D. Birla Sabhaghar, while the event had myself Sreesha Ganguly of class 11A, Mayurika Das of 8A and Manjima Chakraborty of 9D as participants.
