    SAIL should make this school a residential one and other leading schools of Rourkela should do the same as it will help a lot of people in Western Orissa in particular.DPS Rourkela will become a resdential school by next year.

      Can you please describe what do you mean by “World Class” School ? Is it a buzz word that now a days many Schools and Colleges use in India or does it have really anything to offer to the World in true sense ? If it is world class, what will be its position world wide ranking ? I am really interested to know on what parameters Indian Schools and Institutes are considering themselves “World Class” .

      I am really curious to know more about “World Class” in Indian context . I thik we are too early to use this words in true sense and in reality.

    Rourkela Steel Plant is pioneer in Orissa as far as education was concerned. Earlier almost every sector was having a lower sec school and two high schools one in sec 18 other in sec 14. Apart from this the Ispat Eng Medium school. All students were reading in Oriya medium schools. Gradually the fad of convent education started and the pvt english med schools started flourshing and fleeshing public. Due to lack of students gradually the oriya medium schools were either closed down or given on frienchies to pvt parties. Now using the sec 16 school as DAV is a welcome step. More abd more English medium schools should be opened by RSP authorities if they are really interested in educating the wards of their employees. The MaKensy report given advised to close all activities like school, canteen, hospital etc and only concentreate in steel making.

    @ B K Mishra,

    I agree with most of the points except when you say more and more English Medium. But how will you assure these English Schools will thrive and will have more students ? It is the quality of education whether it is Odia or English that really required. The way education system is commercialized with ample encouragement to do that by the Parents is what is in my opinion frustrating.

    Quality is not scoring 99% or 100% in school exams. It is about how critical thinking are developed in a student along with how effective is his/her day to day interaction with the society and environment.

    By the way critical thinking is never developed in foreign language for child and it is universally known.
