The Houses

The Six Houses of the school have been named after the four important rivers of India
The House system at DPSSV

The school is divided into subunits called "houses" and each student is allocated to one house. Houses may compete with one another at sports and maybe in other ways, thus providing a focus for group loyalty. The different houses compete against each other in a variety of events during the year, ranging from athletics, to public speaking and co-curricular activities. The house system also enables teachers to observe how students are progressing outside of the classroom. Each house has a dedicated House Captain and a Vice-Captain who, in addition to overseeing the community and activities of their house, is designed to be a source of guidance and support for individual students.

A river teaches us about ourselves, to care about the world, instills a sense of wonder, teaches us to pay attention and listen.
