Mrs.Punam Sharma- PRO VC,
Hails from a happy family in Begusarai, a picturesque village of Bihar. She grew up with aspirations in her heart to make it big in the field of Education, completed her Post graduation in the field of Arts. Further expanded her horizon by moving to the Nation’s capital city, Delhi, with her family and contributing to her family and society for the past two decades. At home she nurtured her loving children and gave her entire focus on building a Happy Family.
Life is a Journey, It goes on, irrespective of whether we are Happy or Sad. Mrs.Punam chose to be Happy and radiate smiles and positive energy to the environment around her. Being a very kind person by nature, dedicated her time and resources for the upliftment of marginalised and the weaker section of the society. She extended her mantle of kindness to the society by serving in NGOs for children such as, “Spread a Smile”, Sakar Outreach and the likes to give education to the underprivileged children in Bihar. But she always felt that the journey was in complete. She wanted to give the light of knowledge to a bigger community, especially in Bihar, her homeland, and that drive in her inspired her to start a school… The Journey began on the main path of true happiness when the foundation for DPS Hajipur was laid on 29th September 2019 with the noble intention of giving knowledge to the future generation and making them responsible citizens.
The doors to a promising future without boundaries, where knowledge and learning is shared to all the young for a holistic development was opened to all on 20/04/2020.
Mrs.Punam has completed several Educational and Economic enhancement programs to contribute more to this dream project.
Moulding every product of DPS, Hajipur into a responsible and futuristic citizen to make this world a better place is her dream and she will pursue it with a strong team of staff committed to the cause to walk with her in this journey.
