New Delhi: The Doon School – Dehradun, India’s pre-eminent boarding school, has announced its residential ‘Summer @ Doon Leadership Programme’ from 2nd to 16th June 2018. The programme is open to all aspiring girls and boys in Grades 9-12 who are passionate about making a positive impact on the world around them.
Application for this programme closes on April 30th, 2018.
This dynamic and thought-provoking leadership programme will be a blend of creative experiential learning, leadership case studies, design thinking, motivational lectures, outdoor adventures, self-reflection and group interaction. The programme will allow students to expand their horizons across many disciplines and learn through the lenses of psychology, history, geography, philosophy, and economics.
A critically important element will be the relationship between leadership, social service, and environmental responsibility. This programme will ensure that boys and girls develop a deeper understanding of what successful leadership is all about and what is required to demonstrate it in the 21st Century in the context of a developing society in an increasingly globalized world. The programme will be taught by many of the school’s experienced staff as well as by Doon School alumni and other special guests.
“The Doon School has long been associated with innovative thinking and leadership and is passionate about being at the forefront of educational opportunity for its students”, said Mr. Matthew Raggett, Headmaster. “Summer @ Doon seeks to create a very special experience that will enable a wider student body of girls and boys to discover essential qualities within themselves that will help them on their journey of action, leadership, service, and fulfillment.”
“The two-week long programme will be an adventure that promises to be challenging and intellectually demanding, enabling students to meet and make like-minded friends, and to learn from each other and the adults leading Summer @ Doon”, added Mr. Raggett.
The course opened in 2014 and has received rave reviews. Some past students have said, “I’ve become more confident and done things that I would never have dared to do before.” Palak Mehta
