ARINDAM ROY CHOUDHURY
It gives me a sense of pride to be the Principal of G D Goenka Public School, Jammu, which has a single-minded pursuit towards excellence in student learning and holistic development. Our prime objective is to foster confident, creative, caring, curious and happy learners.
I believe in the philosophy that the test of successful education is not the amount of knowledge that a student takes away from the school, but the appetite to know and the capacity to learn. My heart cries when I see too many students leaving school with the appetite for learning killed and the mind loaded with undigested lumps of information. I am happy to see the teaching learning transactions at our school more focused on making learning fun and meaningful and helping our students make learning an integral part of their lives. Our pedagogical focus has moved from content mastery to competency mastery, where project based learning and experiential learning plays a pivotal role.
As the head of the organization, I am committed in upholding high standards with an absolute commitment to strive to understand and improve the educational process, using team strategies, while wholly centering on student achievement. We do understand that our responsibility is not only academic excellence, but preparing our students for life. Hence we have integrated art and other co-curricular activities in our curriculum, coupled with life skills.
Parental involvement in a child's education process is both a gift to your child and a gift to the school. This partnership is strongly encouraged and highly valued at our school.
The distinctive and firm underlying philosophy of our school is to provide Global Education while being steeped in the rich Indian educational tradition and core values. Our emphasis is to create a society of progressive, thinking individuals who will contribute to the intellectual development of the global community.
Without an iota of doubt, I can say that we are just not a school, but ‘an experience’ that every learner would like to go through in their learning journey.
Welcome to this experience! Welcome to G D Goenka Public School , Jammu!
