He was the guiding light and the moving spirit behind the rapid growth and progress of the school. The chief architect of its success story, Mr. Vinay Kumar steered the destiny of the school from October 1994 till his sad demise in November 2009. The youngest ever Principal of a core DPS School, Mr. Vinay Kumar was conferred the ‘Best Upcoming Principal Award’ in 1996 in recognition of his sterling performance. Mr.Vinay Kumar also received the National Award for Teachers in 2002. Mr. Vinay Kumar joined DPS R. K Puram in 1976 as a Biology teacher and soon made a mark as an outstanding teacher, earning the sobriquet, "Maker of Doctors".
He rose to become the Vice-Principal of DPS R.K. Puram in 1992. Always a keen scholar, Mr. Kumar authored 15 books on Biology. He taught and prepared DPS Vasant Kunj students for PMT, with brilliant results.
A simple, unassuming man who always endeared himself to students and staff alike with his gentle demeanour and inimitable style of directness and informality, Mr. Vinay Kumar was a man with a mission. Embodying the values of hard work, perseverance and moral courage, he was fired with a dogged determination to make DPS Vasant Kunj a `temple of learning'. An institution par excellence, which not only helped students along the road to academic achievement but also promoted their all-round development thereby preparing them to be good citizens.
(Mr. Vinay Kumar)
