Delhi Model Virtual School holds its first annual day
The state government’s Delhi Model Virtual School (DMVS) held its first annual day “IMPRINTS - A Mark Leaving Journey” virtually with Education Minister Atishi motivating the students and the DMVS team to take the unique initiative further to children across the country.

In the current academic year 2022-23, more than 300 live classes have been conducted and over 100 tutorials have been produced with over 60 mentoring sessions and more than 200 assignments were completed, the government said in a statement.
