Guwahati, Mar 28 (IBNS): The Doon School–Dehradun, India’s pre-eminent boarding school, has announced its residential ‘Summer @ Doon Leadership Programme’ from June 2 to 16. 

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 30, 2018.

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,” Matthew Raggett, Headmaster, said.

“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,” Raggett said.

A significant number of students, who come from every socio-economic background and from 26 Indian states, receive scholarships or bursaries as part of the school’s mission to attract exceptional boys irrespective of their religion, caste or economic background.

The curriculum is broad and provides a balance of intellectual challenge, creative problem solving and adventure in addition to a strong sporting tradition and love of the arts. Service, social responsibility and leadership are part of the school’s curriculum and are embedded in its ethos.
