PRINCIPAL’S WELCOME
 
Education deals with the essence of what it means to be human. No undertaking is more valuable, more sacred.

We welcome you to G.D. Goenka Public School, Sector 48, with a commitment to nurture and equip young learners with the uncommon ability of self exploration and development. Our aim is to nurture the children to become confident, sensitive, socially committed and well rounded individuals, equipped to become young envoys of progress. Our children grow in the best of environment and under the guidance of competent faculty, elements indispensable today for gaining knowledge and understanding.

One of the largest campus developments in the city of Gurgaon, GDGPS is addressing the contemporary needs of the learners by successfully creating a dynamic environment to trigger learning and to facilitate the teaching process. The visual aid being provided by Interactive Smart Boards make the teaching learning process interesting for the children. State of the art language lab with digital setup is an effective tool to polish the verbal and linguistic abilities of the children. For the avid readers, the library is a place to unwind and delve into the fascinating world created by the writers. A full time Space and Astronomy Club, along with other facilities, is providing the children with a platform to learn and grow in their area of interest.
 
The school follows a structured Co Scholastic curriculum which is implemented through extensive facilities for visual and performing arts. A complete block, with multiple studios, has been created for these activities. Structured sports program is an encouragement for students to pursue sports seriously. The extensive sports set-up includes three world class synthetic Lawn Tennis Courts, Senior and Junior Swimming Pools, Basketball and Badminton courts, Skating Rink, Yoga and Aerobics studios, facilities for Horse Riding, Athletics, Football, Cricket, Youngsters Play Area and Swings.

We are confident of our commitment to inclusive education which emphasizes on holistic development. Holistic education is based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to spiritual values such as compassion and peace. By encouraging reflection and questioning rather than passive memorization of “facts,” teachers in such a set up keep alive the “flame of intelligence” that is so much more than abstract problem-solving skill. A holistic teacher develops the learner into a positive, confident, critical and independent learner who is able to create value in life.

G.D. Goenka Public School, at Sector 48, Gurgaon has come up with a vision to provide education with a holistic approach. There is a whole new world here that awaits the children…the world of art, the world of music, the world of dance, the world of sports, the world of technology, the world of creativity, the world of engineering, the world of management….., a responsible school to give wings to learners’ dreams and aspirations to fly to the world of their choice.
