My Dear Students, Parents and Teachers,
It was in the year 2007 when the gates of GG International School opened to serve the society with quality education.
Education is perhaps one of the most important ingredients to a happy, successful, and constructive life. In fact, having access to good education during childhood and your early adulthood can make a real difference in your later life.
But the luxury of quality education is not what everyone receives; there are still many who can only dream about it. The foundation’s endeavour to spread not just education but quality education has given birth to a community of self-aware and self-reliant learners. Today when I look around, I don’t just see students, but I see individuals who are passionately pursuing their academics, sports and co-curricular activities.
We at GG International School have been able to seamlessly weave co-scholastics, life skills and Sanskaars with our curriculum.
As we step into our 15th year of academic excellence, I am delighted to share that our class 10th and 12th results have been excellent; the school has been recognised for its innovative teaching methodologies and best practices. While the sports department of the school spearheaded the KHELO INDIA project in Pune city, the Aaranya Club of the school determined towards creating school’s very own forest was awarded for its innovative project and ideology.
Here, I would also like to mention that I have always believed that a school is built not just by its infrastructure, open spaces, curriculum but more by the parent-teacher-student community and its bonding.
The learning curve doesn’t stop at school, learning should even continue outside the school. The learning that takes place outside the school, helps in molding the individual as a well-rounded person. Each time our children take up a project, they are not only exposed to new ideas but are able to use their innovative and critical thinking for solving problems, developing solutions, etc.
Therefore, I as the head of the institution and as an academician, I urge each parent, student and teacher to understand the importance of life skills in the 21st century and not only preach but also practice the same. Life skills form an important part of education today, they not only add to the learning of a child but also helps in many ways.
Life skills have been defined as “the abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life” (WHO)
I look forward to seeing more children and parent adopting the important Life Skills that can help each student take – make informed decisions, solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate, effectively, build healthy relationships, empathize with others, and cope with managing, their lives in a healthy and productive manner.
