DSS Courses


In addition to basic courses required as per Nepal Government’s regulation, at Deerwalk Sifal School, we require our students to take the following extra courses:

Byabaharik Sanskrit Shikshaya

Learning Sanskrit Language for four years at the Elementary school level, DSS students learn 'Byabaharik Sanskrit Shikshaya' in the Middle School for the next four years. Under this, the Sanskrit Department designs and teaches multiple Eastern Philosophical topics on Chanakya Niti, Bidu Niti, Geeta, Ayurved Shikshaya in Sanskrit language.

Chinese Language

Chinese (Mandarin) is one of the widespread languages that is spoken by around one billion people. It is also economically important. In order to travel widely and do business in Sino-Tibetan zones, you should be fluent in Mandarin. That’s why, a native Chinese teacher teaches the language to our students.

Coding

Our students start learning coding from grade 1 and continue till grade 12. This course is mandatory at DSS. The students of Elementary School (Grade 1-4) will learn coding as fun and will start working with the logic and coding in the Middle School (Grade 5 - 8). Finally, the students of High School (Grade 8 - 12) learn coding on C Programming and Java Programming.

DSSTalk

In order to improve the oratory skills of the students, the school has introduced a unique public speaking contest: ‘DSS Talk.’ It is a student-run contest, where the students conduct the program, judge the participants, and reveal the results. The winner of the whole series is declared as ‘DSS Talk Champion.’

ECA on Performing Arts

The ECA on Performing Arts (Art, Dance, Music, and Theater) is mandatory for the students of Elementary School (Grade 1 - 4). After learning the four forms of the ECA on Performing Arts, the students at the Middle School Level (5-8) will choose to learn any one of these four forms for the next four years. Finally, the students at the High School will choose to go into any one of the ECA courses from Performing Arts or Sports or Science and Technology.

ECA on Science & Technology

The students from Elementary School (Grade 1 - 4) and Middle School (Grade 5 - 8) learn Coding as a part of ECA on Science Technology. While at the High School (Grade 8 - 12), our students learn advanced coding or robotics as a part of ECA on Science & Technology.

ECA on Sports

The ECA on Sports (Yog & Meditation, Physical Training & Takewando ITF) is mandatory for the students of Elementary School (Grade 1 - 4). While in Middle School, other than one course on 'ECA on Performing Arts', the students can also choose one of the courses on 'ECA on Sports' whether it be Basketball, or Chess, or Badminton, or Table Tennis. Finally, the students at the High School will choose to go into any one of the ECA courses from Performing Arts or Sports or Science and Technology.

Handwriting

We firmly believe that handwriting is an essential skill for the students. Practicing handwriting is an incredibly important exercise as it helps to develop fine motor skills in the students. So, to make sure students gain a level of confidence in their penmanship, we conduct handwriting competitions. Handwriting is mandatory at the Elementary School (Grade 1 - 4).

Reading (Nepali & English)

We want our students to have strong reading skill as reading stimulates students’ imagination and expands their horizon. Every month our students read two books (mostly novels), one in English and the other in Nepali (24 books in a year). Students also have to take a short quiz based on the books they read. By the time our students graduate, they will read 288 books from grade 1 to 12.

Sanskrit Language

The corpus of Sanskrit literature encompasses a rich tradition of poetry and drama as well as scientific and philosophical texts. Sanskrit continues to be widely used as a lingua franca of many Indo-European languages. By including Sanskrit in the curriculum, we want our students to respect and learn the legacy of our ancient language.

Shakuntal

Shakuntal is a Nepali epic written by Laxmi Prasad Devkota. We teach both of these books under the section ‘Literature.’

Writing (Nepali & English)

We encourage our students to write as writing helps them to express their ideas and opinions effectively. Strong writing skill is an asset; it helps students excel in any career path. Our students write journals, essays, creative works like poetry and fiction on a regular basis. Their write-ups are published online, and sometimes in the national newspapers too. Our students publish 16 articles daily in the Student's Corner section. Despite this, their writings are also published in the quarterly magazine 'The Deerwalker'.
