The Principal- The Pathfinder
“The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance – and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.”
The year drifts us towards GLORIOUS 25 YEARS! Yes! It is the time to rejoice and celebrate before chartering the road ahead.
The journey started with a mission in heart and vision in mind to illumine the ignoble dark and nurture love for humanity. The Almighty willed and brought together all the elements in the year 1996. The Founder Chairman Sh. M.S. Bhullar, the then ADGP, PAP, not only laid the foundation of the school but also the guiding principles which built the philosophy and culture of the school. All the subsequent Chairmen following his footsteps provided unflinching support for the growth of the institute. At present, the school is under the chairmanship of Sh.Iqbal Preet Singh Sahota, IPS, Special Director General of Police Armed Battalions, Punjab, Jalandhar, who firmly stands with us like a rock. We are indeed fortunate to have the blessings of one of the greatest visionaries of India Padma Shri awardee Sh. Punam Suri, President, DAV CMC, the true patriarch in letter and spirit; another pillar of support Dr. Nisha Peshin, Director(PS-II)DAV CMC, has always mentored us and providing the educational knowhow, and administrative direction. Guidance in day today affairs is provided by Mrs. Madhu Bahal, Manager,School.
Victories and glories actually have become reference points on the timeline of Police DAV. The challenges and obstacles helped us to sharpen our edges and inspired us to think anew, innovate and set new standards. Evolving and updating ourselves with new knowledge and skills we have built an effective progressive pedagogy. The school has a unique culture, rooted in democratic principles breathing in DAV ethos and values and rare discipline of Punjab Police, which has actually made the school a hub of innovation and creativity. The ripple effect is distinctively visible in neighbourhood schools and needs no credence. Our belief is -still there are so many to serve and so much to achieve!
The e- newsletter is before you, to witness the strength of spirit and victory of our earnest efforts. It is the procession of awards and achievements we have been achieving year after year at state, national and international level in all genres- academics, sports, co- curricular activities, research and the like.
The Almighty – our benefactor never lets us be intimidated by the testing times. Converting challenges into stepping stones, rather multiplying our efforts we could successfully provide online education in virtual classrooms, indigenous digital resources and conducted assessment successfully. The endeavour is to provide the best to our students in terms of technology and teaching, creating innovative lessons, so as not to let the learning of our students suffer any setback.
My gratitude to parents- matching the needs of virtual classrooms, you equipped your wards with smart phones, laptops, tablets and made your homes smart homes. Police DAV is-where it is – because of your consistent love and support.
The striving is always to create not simply cogs ready to be fitted in wheels of commerce but responsible citizens competent to play their role meaningfully in the creation of a meaningful society.
Dear students, when the world is going through tumultuous times, just as Police DAV has emerged as a glorious edifice of learning, I want each one of you to rise above your personal needs and pain, shoulder responsibility and reach out to everyone in need of love and care. It has been rightly said, “No masterpiece was created by a lazy artist”.
Let us join hands to heal the world with the nectar of kindness and erect an edifice of humanity. This is real success…
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life — think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
