High-quality infrastructure facilitates better instructions and improves learner outcomes.
Facilities in the School
The library is the heart of the school; it’s the hub of learning.
The school has a well equipped, air-conditioned and computerized library with over 22,000 volumes which include books, videos, DVDs, CDs, kindle etc. The library also provides students and teachers with a range of reference books, encyclopedias, journals, newspapers and internet facilities to enrich their classroom activities.
All new books are displayed in the library for a month and reviews are put up on the Notice Board. Activities such as ‘Library Week’ with book readings, designing book jackets and bookmarks and writing book reviews are the attractions of our library. To encourage reading for pleasure, the DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) programme and International Reading Day is followed on a weekly basis in all classes from III to XII. Newspapers and magazines (virtual) are regularly shared with the students. Book Fairs are also organized and visited by students and teachers.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
– Benjamin Franklin
Students get a first-hand learning experience by performing various experiments on their own. They are made to use the models and understand different scientific theories and concepts. . At GDSPS we follow the principle of learning by doing hence students are encouraged to interact directly with the data gathered. To ensure this, the school has well equipped and well stocked laboratories for the following subjects:
- General Science
- Social Science
- Computer Science
IT & Resource Center
A computer laboratory is important to enhance the scientific and technological research and invention capacity of students.
The school believes in providing the best possible opportunities to its students as well as faculty to ensure consistent eminence. The IT infrastructure includes two computer laboratories – Junior and Senior, each equipped with advanced technologies.
Computer learning at GDSPS starts right from Class I, where the tiny tots get the exposure to the technology through the play-way method.
The Computer Lab allows students as well as faculty to research extensively by accessing information on the global network.
The classroom environment is a second teacher for any student. A large amount of a child’s time in school is spent in a classroom. Here they learn various skills necessary for them to achieve success.
With the classroom being such an important place, the school has bright and well-ventilated classrooms. The furniture and décor of each classroom has been designed to facilitate improved teaching and learning. The classrooms are also equipped with modern technological teaching aids like projectors and smart boards. Use of cutting edge technology helps to make the classes more interactive and the lessons more interesting.
Performing Arts: Dance And Music Rooms
“The world is a complicated place, and there’s a lot of division between people. The performing arts tend to unify people in a way nothing else does.” – David Rubenstein
It has been proven that people involved in performing arts are able to engage the mind, emotions, and body in ways that allow them to properly flow through real-life situations with empathy, understanding, emotional intelligence, and confidence, as well as to communicate with their varying counterparts. It is necessary to get children involved in performing arts at an early stage to equip them with all the necessary skills to navigate through life.
- Students learn to play varied string and percussion instruments. They are also trained in Indian Classical Vocal and Western music.
- The students are trained in various dance forms such as Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Folk and Freestyle.
The health and wellbeing of the young learners is of utmost importance. With an infirmary within the school premises, we are able to provide quick first aid in time.

Art fosters higher levels of thinking that carry over to learning other academic subjects as well as to life outside of school. In our Art room, children learn to observe, interpret, see different perspectives, analyze, and synthesize. Their work is preserved and displayed.
The amphitheatre at the GDSPS is a marvel worth witnessing. The ambience around it draws students to it. It is graded for maximum viewing and the sightlines are excellent from anywhere in it. The amphitheatre is a platform for students to showcase their talents. The open space theatre is thoughtfully planned to inspire a learning experience for academic and cultural activities.

Rain Water Harvsting
‘Don’t forget to save the rain, let’s prevent tomorrow’s pain.’ – Anonymous
The school has always been at the forefront of contributing towards saving the environment. With an aim to replenish the depleting ground water level, the school has set up a water harvesting plant in the school premises.
Water Conservation – protecting our precious natural resource
Rainwater harvesting systems are a great way of educating children about the benefits of the conservation of our natural resources. They save money by not wasting water and help to encourage an environmentally responsible attitude in the next generation. With low energy pumps and controls, there are no negatives to using a rainwater system in a school. It also ensures that rainwater is effectively used. It has resulted in huge savings in water bills and significantly contributing to the reduction of rainwater run-off.
I read, I forget, I discuss, I remember, I do, I inculcate.
Activity room is to engage the kids by providing them an environment that induces joy, happiness and creativity, introducing children to fundamental learning through the medium that is engaging, less straining and more recreational in nature.
The interior of this room is designed keeping the little ones in mind. Their inquisitive and eager eyes get the feel of things fresh and attractive. Here we have games, arts/crafts and story sacks. We feel it’s very important for children to experience small group work as well as individual and large group work, so this quiet extension gives the children every opportunity. It also serves as a Resource Room for teachers as it is equipped with books, manuals and journals on Early Childhood Care and Education. It also has a large collection of story books for children which includes colourful story books like Panchtantra, Fairy Tales, Pop Up Books and Picture Books.
The school has always been at the forefront of taking initiatives for conservation of the environment. It is indeed a unique milestone in the history of the school to earn the distinction of becoming the first ever school in Central Delhi to have a fully sufficient Solar Plant. Our 70 kwp Roof Top Solar Power Project, is designed to generate 84,000 units of electricity per year. With this initiative, we have reduced our carbon footprints, thereby contributing our might to conserve Mother Earth. Our 36,000 litres rainwater harvesting plant will save thousands of gallons of water to recharge the underground water level!
