There were messages of farewell from teachers and the DPS International’s authorities to the young and brilliant students as they go out into the world and prepare for their university education.
A special appeal was made to them, and that was to stay in touch with one another and be good ambassadors of DPS International wherever they go in the world.

With deep emotion, Mr. Thakwani, whose son was among the graduands said: “Wherever you go, I know you are going to make yourselves proud; you are going to make DPSI proud and you are going to make your parents proud.”

The graduands were the third batch of students that joined DPS International during its inception around 2010.
He advised the graduands to give back to the society, especially the needy as well as the school, urging them to be obedient in accordance with the teachings of the Lord and the principles of DPS International.
The Principal of DPS International, Mr. David Raj, was confident that the graduands have acquired the relevant knowledge and skills to help them excel in their higher education.
Mr. Raj observed that they had been well nurtured and like birds, they were being let off the nest to go into the world and make a positive impact.
