THE G D GOENKA GROUP IN EDUCATION

FOUNDATION AND EXPANSION

Established in I982, with varied interests in Real Estate, Travel & Tourism and Exports, the G. D. Goenka Group has stood at the frontier of innovative education, relentlessly building a brand of education that stands for quality and excellence both in India and abroad.

THE G D Goenka SCHOOLS

Its foray into innovative education began in 1994 to commemorate the memory of the late Smt. Gayatri Devi Goenka, mother of the Chairman, Mr. A. K. Goenka. Starting with barely 23 students in its first year at the first school, the G. D. Goenka Public School in Vasant Kunj, today fosters an enriched educational life for over 2500 students. The school takes pride in having introduced many firsts: the first centrally air-conditioned school offering the most hi-tech gym with Life Fitness equipment (set up in 2000); the first to introduce the air conditioned buses with communication facilities, toilets with sensory taps and Mineral Water Dispensers in Indian schools. With the latest educational aids, equipment and amenities, set up to uphold the highest standards in education, hygiene, safety & security, this model has been replicated in each school owned by or affiliated with the G D Goenka Group both in India and internationally.

Over the last 21 years, with over 40 wholly-owned and franchised schools across India and abroad, the G D Goenka Group has become a trend-setter in quality education from kindergarten to post-graduate education: the G. D. Goenka Toddler House (an upcoming chain of Kindergarten lefts), over 15 G. D. Goenka Lá Petite Montessori preschools (seamlessly blending the IB method with the spiritual method of the Vedas) and an entire Education City on the Sohna-Gurgaon Road.

His innovative mission reached the pinnacle of success due to the G D Goenka International School, led execution of plans by Smt. Renu Goenka. Her finesse and sensitivity worked in unison with Shri A. K. Goenka's visionary enterprise, to give the school its present standard.

A LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE

Today, under the aegis of G D Goenka Group, the G D Goenka Public Schools are regarded as centres of educational excellence globally. The school philosophy is based on a set of strongly held beliefs which are put into action everyday by every member of the institution. It's a philosophy of treating each child in a sensitive manner and providing appropriate developmental programmes so as to encourage not just

learning but also the love of learning. It is also based on providing an environment that is safe, clean, healthy and child oriented. An environment where classrooms are arranged in a manner that it offers challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Activity areas are designed where children are allowed to explore, experience, and most importantly, succeed.
