With a view to inculcate responsible and safe browsing among today’s generation, Delhi Public School organised an awareness programme on cyber safety.

An expert on cyber laws and head of faculty at Cyber Law Knowledge Centre, Sai Sushanth, spoke to students of Class IX on the need for awareness among children of the pros and cons of using the internet.

Victims of most cyber crimes are from the age group 11-24, Mr. Sushanth pointed out while cautioning children against the indiscriminate use of the internet. With the evolution of technology, there has been an increase in crime rate and perhaps, the innocent are also victimised, he added.

He advised children to have a strong password. “Ignorance of the Law is no excuse,” he said while advising the children to be smart in the Cyber World. Principal of Delhi Public School, B. Aruna Kumari, presided over the function.

I am Smera Modani of class VIII “A”, I want to share my experience of our visit to Shameerpet Deer Park. On Sunday i.e , on 03.02.2013, we started at 8.30 a.m. in the morning from school.

Boys and Girls were divided into 6 groups. We were the first to go for Rapelling and Jhummering . Next was spider web. It was a difficult game, where we had to go through the web without touching the threads. And the next was target achievement. This game develops our concentration and teaches us team work.

After that was rock climbing . We also did archery.
