As part of the Junior red cross the school conducts a training camp for the students to teach them life skills such as First aid, CPR etc. The students also volunteer their time in various health camps organised by Indian Red Cross Society.
The Junior Red Cross unit was established in Delhi Public School Warangal with the hope of encouraging younger generations to cultivate their compassionate spirit by understanding the principles and ideas of humanitarian activities. The practice of volunteering and participating in activities which support community initiatives is to foster a sense of empathy towards others, and built on the principles of charitable participation of DPS Society. Students not only support external programs but also take the time to help fundraise for events organised by the school such as educational summer camps for local underprivileged children, flood donation donations during calamities, and so on. Additionally, students also participate in other organisational initiatives such as Blue Cross.

Speaking on the occasion, Principal, Pillai Manjumol Shivashankar, said, “As the educators of children, our work is to help in nation building. The award our students have received is not only testament to their efforts, and compassionate minds, but also to the teachers who spend time in fostering such values.

We’re proud to have such students in our school today, and hope to continue with this fervour to support causes.”
