PRINCIPAL’S¬†MESSAGE

We believe, as John Dewey (1859-1952), the American education reformer, that ‘Education is not a preparation for life, education is life itself.’ Inspired from this our motto `Excellence in Education’ is a resounding echo to this very purpose and to which every Podarite is deeply devoted. This academic year we have seen deeply enriching responses to redefining our limits in all spheres of teaching and learning experience, be it curricula, assessment, new teachers or students too.
Real life application of knowledge and skills has been the hallmark of the education revolution at Podar International School. The caring and sensitized ethos at Podar has helped our students evolve into caring and achieving members of society and blossom into responsible, global citizens. We have seen ample evidence of cross-culture exposure and internationalism in classrooms and outside, in the year that has gone by. We lend the platform and work hard backstage to applaud our students in all their activities, be with them, behind them and around them. We celebrate and rejoice in their success and ours as we create a niche for ourselves in the field of education.
The world of education has acknowledged our triumph by ranking us 22nd country wide and 4th in the Western Zone as per a survey conducted by IMRB, India’s most respected market research organisation. With yet another feather in our cap, I welcome you to a new year of achieving new milestones. The stage is set, the props are ready and our students are perched like fledgling birds, eager to spread their wings and fly to more enriching and spiritual heights.
