Guwahati, Mar 30 (IBNS): The Doon School, India's pre-eminent boarding school, has announced its Residential 'Summer @ Doon Leadership Programme', which will be held from June 3-17.

The programme is open for all aspiring girls and boys in grades 9-12.

Application for this programme closes on April 15.

This dynamic and thought provoking leadership programme will be a blend of Socratic dialogues, 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.

This programme will ensure that boys and girls receive a profound understanding of what successful leadership is all about and what is required to demonstrate it in the twenty-first century in the context to developing society in an increasingly globalized world.

The programme will be taught by many of the school’s experienced staff as well as by 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,” Matthew Raggett, Headmaster said.

“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 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 at Doon,” Raggett said.

The course opened in 2014 and received rave reviews.
