The Doon School, Dehradun – India’s premier boarding school has announced its sixth residential ‘Summer @ Doon Leadership Programme’ from May 21 through June 3, 2019. The programme is open for all aspiring girls and boys in grades 9-12 who are passionate about making a positive impact on the world around them. Applications for this year’s programme closes on April 30, 2019.
This dynamic and thought provoking leadership programme at The Doon School will be a blend of leadership case studies, design thinking, creative experiential learning, motivational lectures, outdoor adventures, self-reflection and group interaction. The programme will allow students to expand their horizons across multiple disciplines and learn through the lenses of history, geography, philosophy and economics.
A critically important element will be the relationship between leadership, social service as well as social and environmental responsibility. The programme will ensure boys and girls receive a profound understanding of what successful leadership is about and what is required to demonstrate it in the twenty-first century in the context of developing society in an increasingly globalised world. The programme will be taught by many of the school’s experienced staff as well as by The Doon School alumni and other special guests and invitees.
“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 Matthew Raggett, headmaster. “Summer at 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 fulfilment.”
“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 at Doon,” added Raggett.
Launched in 2014, the course received impressive reviews.
Nysa Keswani, student of 2018 batch, said, “The Doon School facilities are amazing and if I had the opportunity, I would do anything to come here. The intellectual approach of the modules was interesting as it made me question my identity and things that I had never thought of before.”
“I have definitely learnt to use my time more productively, reduced the need for my phone and I also have an idea now as to what I would like to do with my life,” said Samriddhi Patil, another student of 2018 batch.
“The modules were great because the tutors let everyone speak and give their ideas. Both teachers and students participating in the programme were very intelligent and I made good friends,” Suchet Gopal
