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 PUBLIC 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 centers), 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.
THE G.D. GOENKA EDUCATION CITY
Driven by the passion of one of India’s most avant-garde industrialists, the ideas of Globalization and Internationalization merged over 60 acres of prime property on the Sohna-Gurgaon Road to create Mr. A.K. Goenka’s vision of an educational hub: the GD Goenka Education City of which the World School is an integral part.
With global collaboration and affiliation at the core, the G.D. Goenka Education City, includes the G. D. Goenka World School with children representing over 30 countries and offering the IB and IGCSE curriculum, the G.D. Goenka World Institute, in partnership with Lancaster University, UK and the G.D. Goenka University that builds leaders of tomorrow, through specialized Schools of Architecture & Planning, Communication , Engineering, Fashion & Design (in collaboration with the famous Politecnico Di Milano School of Italy), Hospitality (in collaboration with Le Cordon Bleu), Humanities & Social Sciences, Law (Approved by the Bar Council of India) and Management.
THE G.D. GOENKA WORLD SCHOOL
With an experienced Executive Director, professional administrators, dedicated academicians and a bustling student-life the G.D. Goenka World School, set against the picturesque foothills of the Aravalli Range, enjoys the benefits of advanced technology and world-class infrastructure: beautifully manicured lawns, a Wi-Fi enabled, fully-air-conditioned campus; meticulously maintained playing fields, activities and sporting facilities, with nationally-ranked programs (Education World 2013 -14), AV equipped classrooms and conference halls, well-stocked libraries, hi-tech laboratories, carefully planned residential accommodation and an exclusive dining experience. GDGWS has created a space in Indian education that can be benchmarked against the best in the world.
The G.D. Goenka Group, led by the revolutionary vision and persuasive action of the Chairman, Mr. A. K. Goenka, tirelessly supported by the hands-on approach of Vice-Chairperson, Mrs Renu Goenka and the energetic marketing and financial expertise of the Managing Director, Mr. Nipun Goenka, believe that their journey into education has only just begun. With their vision firmly focused on educational advancement globally, they remain ahead of the curve, breathing new life into education across the country.
Learning is enabling the individual to utilize his/ her potential to its fullest. Without education, the development of the human mind is incomplete
At G. D. Goenka World School, we provide an environment and curriculum where children can explore and develop every facet of themselves, enabling them to realize their true potential. This, coupled with a state-of- the-art technology, a highly qualified, thoroughly trained and concerned faculty, a plethora of activities for students to engage in -all provide an environment that’s both therapeutic and beautiful.
As children go about discovering themselves, they also discover extraordinary roots, because another objective of the G. D. Goenka School is to ensure that the wards of NRIs and Persons of Indian origin abroad get an opportunity to reconnect with the culture and values that form the backbone of every Indian’s existence.
To achieve these objectives, this unique educational institution seeks to blend the beauty of traditional cultural values with the latest in teaching aids and methodology to optimize learning, open young minds and empower young people to become global citizens who stand tall and live with courage and conviction, carving a niche for themselves wherever they go.
Good luck and best wishes!
A. K. GOENKA
