The Diliman Preparatory School (DPS) as a learning organization boasts of a happy and exciting environment.
According to Sen. Nikki Coseteng, DPS commits itself to drawing out the “genius in every child.” DPS students are exposed to entrepreneurial concepts, ethical and global citizenship, as well as healthy environment through sports.
I have known the former Senator since 2010 when we organized the Guinness World Record 24-hour non-stop swim relay event.
She is a strong supporter and the honorary chairman of the Philippine Swimming League (PSL).
“We celebrated our 46thFoundation last year. I am truly proud to have this milestone and we are continuously doing our level best to provide the latest and most appropriate and quality education together with sports to all those who enter our gates,” Coseteng said.
“At DPS, we’ve instituted a more strict way to ensure the safety of our students by installing an improved Gatekeeper turnstile system where students must tap their Radio Frequency Identification or RFID-equipped ID cards before the turnstile will turn.
In DPS, only one student at a time is allowed to pass through.
Ensuring that all systems are for the new school year, DPS welcomes its employees with a strengthened development program aimed at making every faculty member prepared and equipped with the latest teaching skills, learning tools and strategies primarily anchored in the process of providing quality education for all Dilimanians and realizing the school’s vision and mission.”
A series of seminar-workshops were held at the DPS auditorium with competent speakers from different fields of education, teachers got valuable insights and learned teaching strategies that are very useful in welcoming the students, managing their classes and realizing their academic goals.
The different topics for the seminar-workshops were about classroom management, new teaching strategies and techniques, test construction, work ethics, personality development, and effective presentation skills via EPIP training and subject area articulation sessions.
The teacher-training program gave way to the revising of the Whole-Brain Learning System in terms of its effectiveness to teachers and students who need to understand, imbibe and apply the curriculum design.
Not only that, DPS student leaders accompanied by their respective advisers attended the Disaster Risk Reduction Seminar hosted by the Environmental Committee.
They have learned that the local government and its organizations are doubling up the needed equipment for emergency, as the safety of the citizens is always their top priority.
Even the Grade School Department conducted a Disaster Preparedness Program to students at the DPS Gym.
This was in line with the government’s campaign to educate every citizen on disaster preparedness.
DPS also joined the metrowide earthquake drill led by the Metro Manila Development Authority.
