“Most of us who have been involved in the field of education for the last two and a half decades and have witnessed the drastically changing socio economic background - have felt the deep impact of this changing scenario on school going children.
Having gone Global on economic, political and allied fronts as a nation and thrown open our doors to the winds of change, one could foresee what legacy we were to create for the future inheritors of our country .
Anticipated, the next gen would be global citizens where geographical boundaries would cease to deter belongingness to merely one corner or location and would certainly demand a much wider perspective and a mindset to match from each individual.
We urgently required a system of education where by a ‘state of the art ‘ technology would support a much wider array of content from a world perspective that would take the children of today through such strategically planned experiences that were drawn from any part of the world and measured up qualitatively as per world standards to prepare world citizens of tomorrow . It was a challenge.
This challenge was met head on by some of the most forward thinking educational organisations of the future, willing to lead the field of education from the front . Of these, the Global Indian International Schools Foundation (aptly named) stands out today with its great track record and serving the world community across the globe.
The makeover of educational institutions , to a more congenial and homogenous organisation for a growing global individual, has been but a natural outcome.
Important areas like the Emotional and the Spiritual well being that were taken care of at home, have now come under the direct purview of the school besides the usual traditional ones. The focus is turned towards values education, soft skills development, leadership training, the art of self governance , crisis management and so on.
Class room management too is seeing a revolution of sorts with pedagogical support from IT and allied media.
Consideration of the Multiple Intelligences is a key factor in effective teaching- learning practices in scholastic and co scholastic areas today.
Schools are, more than ever before, being recognised as platforms that should integrate the demands of the different industries/entrepreneurships that eventually children will be required to perform in.
Towards these ends , we at GIIS,Noida, will be constantly endeavouring to have as much interaction as possible between children and alumni of illustrious universities and actual corporate leaders who can bring them a first hand flavour of things to come in the future.
Parents can be excellent support for such a programme and come forward to volunteer .
At the Global Indian International School, Noida, while promoting academic excellences, we will constantly be integrating ourselves with all such factors and more . We shall constantly safeguard and nurture - the sensitive human being in every child, involving ourselves in and keeping ahead in this nation building enterprise involving all stakeholders effectively and uniformly in our endeavour .”
