We strive to have our parents, teachers and community members actively involved in our student’s learning. GFS strives to make children confident and creative builders of their future. We work towards an integrated curriculum that reaches across disciplines and age levels; the students are encouraged to meet academic challenges with openness, enthusiasm, and a willingness to solve problems. We aim for an atmosphere of cooperation, with respect for individual differences and community values.
We intend to achieve these goals by exposing the children to the following areas of instruction: cademics for scholastic growth and development.
- Value education for humaneness and essence of moral integrity and spiritual growth.
- Self confidence and leadership through life skill programmes.
- Games and extra curricular activities for personality development.
