Demonstration Multipurpose School is located in the city of Bhubaneswar, Orissa. Such schools are located in many cities in India. In these schools, necessary arrangements are made to conduct research, studies, and innovations related to the students, trainees, and educational system. These schools are being used as working laboratories for the Teacher Training Programs and also being developed as Demonstration Schools.
The school provides education to the young children of the state at a nominal fee. The reason for having these schools is to have a multipurpose place where different activities are conducted. These include teaching, training, community service programs, and cultural activities.
The school conducts many unique cultural activities. The Directorate of Sports, Art & Cultural invites local troupes and cultural associations to perform at the school. Troupes having programs related to the composite culture of Orissa are generally preferred. The idea of conducting theses events is to make the students aware of their rich cultural heritage.
The Department of Environment and Forests organizes a quiz program for school students every year. Nearby schools are also invited to participate in the program. The quiz features topics such as wildlife general, wildlife concepts, wild animals, birds, forestry and environment. The Department of Environment and Forests also organizes mono-acting and skit competitions for school students. The competition is based on themes related to forest, wildlife and environment. These programs help to create awareness in the students about the environment.
