Ashish Nehra Cricket Academy

It was almost two years ago that Ashish Nehra Cricket Academy was started at Delhi Public School, Allahabad to provide a unique opportunity to the youngsters of this region to take part and develop proficiency in cricket under the guidance of Mr. Ashish Nehra. It gave them a world class international cricketing experience at their doorstep with the likes of Mr. Yuvraj Singh, Mr. Ajay Jadeja, Mr. Zaheer Khan and Mr. Ashish Nehra who came and interacted with the kids and gave them cricketing tips.

This, after school cricket coaching programme is open for all school and college kids. Timings for academy are:- Friday and Saturday 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm and on Sunday 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Three areas are covered – bowling, batting and fielding, and the children are tested for catching, throwing, bowling and striking skills.

Youngsters are introduced to full cricket equipment and the programme is designed to teach all aspects of a game situation and to challenge students as well as create confidence.

This recognition of the young achievers is the logical extension of group coaching and in addition to being a measure of a young cricketer’s ability in the basic skills, is an excellent check on their progress over a period of coaching.

Teachers Training workshop on Classroom Management was conducted by CBSE on 9th & 10th September, 2017 at Delhi Public School, Allahabad
Added on: 12 Sep 2017

The improvement of teaching qualities is a high priority in any educational system. Teachers are assigned the role of change agents and are presented with new challenges e.g. to make education global, permanent, flexible enough to serve in any environment (in or out of the classroom) for life and reflective of the community. Teachers have to learn to adapt creatively to changes in content and to prepare generations who are universal, critical, and creative and who have firm identities with their socio-cultural background. However, a realistic approach to in-service teacher training programme/ workshop should consider that teachers are ordinary human beings with their virtues, defects, duties and rights.


In this regard the training workshop on Classroom Management was conducted by CBSE on 9th& 10th September, 2017 at Delhi Public School, Allahabad. 66 teachers from different schools participated in the workshop.

During the Literary Week at DPS Allahabad an Inter House Competition called JAM was organised on May 18, 2016 in the school auditorium for the classes IX, X. Each House was represented by five participants who went via the five rounds of the contest one by one. In each round the contestants were given a topic on which they had to speak for one minute sans being impugned or demurred to. As soon as a topic was dropped the House which hit the buzzer first was allowed to speak on. The participants were called into question by their counterparts owing to repetition, hesitation, deviation from the given topic or any grammatical error effectuated by malapropism, etc.

It was very interesting to see the contestants putting a spoke in each other’s wheels every now and then, attempting assiduously to complete the span of one minute. It was also engrossing to see the topic being tossed from House to House, causing the conductors to toil hard to keep pace with the time running and stay tuned with the house speaking simultaneously.

As the time ticked away the competition went on being more intense, almost becoming a battle of nerves where each House gave an electrifying performance to grab the win.

In the long run Jhelum, Ravi and Yamuna were in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd position respectively.

On April 20, 2016 a Language Talk was given before the students of classes 8-12 in the auditorium of DPS Allahabad. Mr. Dhruv Sharma, the mastermind of Logophilia was the resource person. The Language Talk was basically an introductory session(ahead of the main workshops)in which the students were given an insight into learning to recognise words of English language via some specific methods .In this session the students were acquainted with the historical background of English language that dates back to the time when Greek and Latin were used mostly. Some startling facts concerning the number of words in some languages, including English were also divulged to the students (here English tops the list with more than 10 lakh words). Some instances related to figuring out a word from English language by splitting it into two parts were also displayed which the students found most interesting. The pupils found the Talk intriguingly informative and practical and many of them got themselves registered for the Logophilia Workshop which were to follow from April 22-23, 2016. The Workshop on the dates aforementioned turned out to be more utilitarian in an engrossing manner. The students, ahead of the workshops were looking forward to striking a closer understanding as regards deciphering an English word which they are not familiar with. Their expectation was comprehensively catered to in the Workshops as the knowledge they gained, many of them firmly believe would help them with English language throughout their lives. Studying a word etymologically(specially by dint of an etymon)not only helped pupils to grasp a particular word interestingly easily, it also enabled them to decode so many other words too in the similar fashion as the pupils were now familiar to the very root of the words they had emerged from.

During the Workshop a test was also conducted to check the students` understanding related with words of English language. The short listed students will make it to the other competitions of higher level which the Team Logophilia has planned to organise with other schools, colleges and Universities across India. Logophilia was an unprecedented experience for the students of DPS Allahabad as they loved it thoroughly participated whole. Heartedly, learnt extensively and toiled assiduously to make it to the next level. On the whole, it was a very fruitful event, apart from the academics, being a part of it as well!!
