The session 2020-21 saw a new mode of education, the online system of teaching. The school provided academic teaching via zoom sessions and video sharing. Online examinations were conducted successfully from classes Nursery to VIII.
Activities were organised online. Competitions of drawing, music, singing, and yoga were conducted online to keep children engaged and motivated. Our class VIII students took part in an inter DPS quiz conducted by DPS, Noida. Our children successfully participated in an Online Inter DPS Art Competition organised by DPS, Haridwar. To keep up the moral and mental health of our children online confidential counselling was done for the students.
DPS, Dooars received its affiliation from the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi w.e.f. 1st April 2021, in December. A press meet was held in Saluja Residency, Siliguri in January where the management of the school interacted with journalists of all leading dailies and social media news channels.

This session taught us to accept a new parallel way of teaching and learning. Our students, parents, teachers, and all our stakeholders believed in us, and after a lot of trials and some hiccups, we managed to successfully complete the session, wishing, hoping, and praying for better times to come.
