“Education is a life – long journey and the School realizes the importance of a good start. It is here that the foundation for the love of learning is laid and strengthened. At the Junior School level, the School expects the students to entrench the basics and explore the world. They learn to question, analyze, classify and communicate their perceptions. An unconventional system of education is adopted by the School where education is imparted through play-way methods and concepts are taught via origami, clay modelling, sand play and painting.
“The curriculum ensures special inputs for the students adept at any field from Languages, Mathematics, Science and Technology or Performing Arts. It takes care of the increasing range of opportunities and the astounding variety of careers opening up due to the phenomenal developments. The third language offered takes into consideration new economic trends and changing geo-political phenomena. Spacious and airy classrooms of the outstanding academic block makes learning comfortable and fun.”

The curriculum ensures the holistic development of the students encapsulating scholastic and co-scholastic aspects including Life-Skills, Attitudes and Values, Performing Arts, Health and Physical Education. The prime focus is to bring forth innovation in teaching-learning methodologies by devising student friendly and student centered paradigms. “
Classrooms are spacious, centrally air conditioned and have lighting arrangements as per international standards. The number of students in each class is restricted, so that the teachers give individual attention to each student. Aesthetically designed furniture has been provided in each classroom, keeping in mind the comfort of the child. Each classroom of the Junior School has been tailor made to cater to the creative needs of the tiny tots.
The Goenkan Classrooms are integrated with the Interactive smart boards used in GDGPS as a replacement for traditional white boards or flipcharts. They provide ways to show students everything which can be presented on a computer’s desktop (educational software, websites and others) in an actual working setting.
