HOLISTIC GROWTH DEPARTMENT

DAVIM believes that education is no longer just about learning tangible and measurable skills. Our past educational paradigms relied on the “average” measurements and standardization. The biggest benefit of a holistic approach isn’t just about mental development but it encompasses psychological, social and emotional growth which is the need of the hour. Holistic development essentially means the development of intellectual, mental, physical, emotional, and social abilities in a student so that he or she is capable of facing the demands and challenges of everyday life. These abilities are vitally important for success in professional fields. In the past decades our knowledge regarding student development has expanded, and with this our teaching methodologies. To achieve the 360 degree growth of the student, department of holistic growth conducts declamation competition, poster making and essay writing etc activities on regular basis in which students participate with full vigour and enthusiasm. The department also organises in-house sessions for the students where the speakers from diverse areas address the students and groom the students for their overall development. Holistic learning approach has successfully helped development of our students into well-rounded and successful professionals serving the society.
