Delhi World Public School

House System

The School is divided into subunits called ‘Houses’ and each student, from Grade 1 onwards, is allocated one House the moment he/she is enrolled in the School. The theme of the Houses is ‘Rivers’ as they symbolize a flow of life and energy. Houses compete with each other in sports and co-curricular activities, thus providing a focus for group loyalty. Dedicated students exhibiting leadership qualities will be designated as House Captains and Prefects. They will assist the House Master/Mistress in the smooth functioning of the House.

The four Houses, with their mottos, are


HOUSE MOTTO: ‘Step together, Express together’ – The Brahmaputra is a trans-boundary river and one of the major rivers of Asia. With its origin in the Angsi Glacier, located on the northern side of the Himalayas in Burang, it flows across southern Tibet to break through the Himalayas in great gorges.


HOUSE MOTTO: ‘Success is born of action’ – Kaveri, also spelled Cauvery, is the sacred river of southern India. Rising in the hills of Brahmagiri of the Western Ghats, it surges in a south-easterly direction through the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, descending the Eastern Ghats in a series of great falls. Before emptying into the Bay of Bengal, the river breaks into a large number of distributaries forming a wide delta called the “garden of southern India”.


HOUSE MOTTO: ‘Touch the sky with glory’ – The Narmada is one of the five holy rivers of India. Its origin is the Narmada kund on the Amarkantak hills in Madhya Pradesh. It is also called Reva and Purva Ganga. It flows through Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.


HOUSE MOTTO: ‘Tireless effort and attempt’ – The Yamuna is the largest tributary of the Ganga in northern India. It is also the longest river in India which does not directly flow to the sea. It originates from the Yamunotri Glacier at a height of 6,387 meters on the south-western slopes of the lower Himalayas in Uttarakhand and travels a total length of 1,376 kilometers. Yamunotri, the place of origin of river Yamuna, is worshipped as the seat of Goddess Yamuna and is considered as one of the four sites in India’s Char Dham pilgrimage.
