DESAFIO, aims to foster curiosity, creativity and originality, in other words out of the box thinking, and so has been designed by severing from all that is cliché, giving expression to a fresh array of talents present in the students. DESAFIO – II, the literary and cultural spectacle hosted by DSE – Manikonda on 27th July 2018, boasts of nearly 900 participants across 17 schools. It had been a blend of literary, cultural and art competitions that were planned to bring out the best of oratory, artistic and creative skills of the participants. It also set a benchmark for future events as it witnessed some of the best talents in Hyderabad. The competitions ranged from Monologues to Shakespearean drama with a twist of their own, to Songaana – creating a perfect blend of Hindi and English songs. The event also challenged advertising skills with a negative campaign for a product. It provided a perfect platform for portraying the skills of teachers and their pupils alike. Innumerable memories were made and experiences gathered during the span of a few hours. The event has been an enriching journey for the students elevating their self-confidence and planting in them the seed of unquenchable thirst for knowledge and the desire to be the best in life. It also taught them the value of true sportsmanship.We the team of DSE – Manikonda, aspire to keep challenging our budding young minds through this honest endeavour for many more years to come…….

Avadhaaran

It’s time for a new beginning at DSE as we welcome our students back to school after a long summer break. It is also that time when pre-primary moves to primary, primary to middle and middle to secondary. It is also a period of getting acquainted with the school norms and academic activities. To address this apprehension, DSE organizes orientation program where curriculum for the academic year is introduced to the parents. Also, opportunity for interaction with the concerned teachers is provided. Any issues raised or suggestions made by the parents are taken to the higher management, which if found valid are implemented.

Second of June is celebrated as Telangana formation day, saluting the vision and perseverance of many people in realizing this vision our leaders had for Telangana.  DSE – Manikonda, too celebrated this spirit of Telangana by hoisting the tricolor. The fervor of day was felt when  the state song was played. An Essay Writing competition was conducted for the students to express their views on the birth and rise of the newly formed state. The highlight of the day was the teachers performing the bathukamma dance, which though once forgotten, has now become the trademark of Telangana.
