Sports

At G. D. Goenka Public School, Sports training is imparted to the students in order to inculcate in them a feeling of sportsman spirit, team spirit, self discipline and a spirit of general well-being.

A competitive spirit coupled with self discipline and sound health, form the motto of our Sports Activities.

Inter house championships help to generate camaraderie between students, a sense of competitiveness, brotherhood, discipline, positive attitude and very importantly, the fact that losing is as significant as winning.

Inter school events are powerful instruments of exposure for students at individual and team level in different stages.

Art & Craft

A work of art is above all an adventure of the mind - Eugene Ionesco

Art is important for the development of individual and societies. Art enables individuals to imagine novel, productive, and fulfilling solutions to the challenges humanity faces. If you pause reading this and take a look around, what you notice is not the structures, but pieces of art – whether they are pictures, paintings, crafts, decorative items, or an aesthetically made piece of furniture. It is the art that touches our hearts and souls and turns the mundane into magnificent. Art makes the magic in our lives. If art is so essential to make the world a joy to live in, training for it must start with children. Art helps students to better understand the concepts taught in the school, and improves their memory. More importantly, they learn to reflect on the larger and broader issues that affect humanity, and make a connection with one another and with the nature. That connection is essential for building a better world.The benefits of art education do not stop in the classroom or at the school. Art not only develops students, but also helps them to become better employees and entrepreneurs. Not other example illustrates this better than Apple, whose founder Steve Jobs created the organization, not to make technical products, but to create pieces of art that people around the world can admire, appreciate, and adopt to improve their daily lives. Businesses around the world are realizing that integrating the imagination developed through an arts education and the knowledge of technology education is the key to success.

As we teach art to the students, we should remember to focus not on the output they produce in the form of pictures, photographs, skits, poems, and crafts; instead, we should focus on how art is transforming them into better humans. It is through such process that noble souls arise and leave a legacy for us, as well as the future generations to rejoice.

Special Assemblies

Our School provides a very conducive atmosphere for our students to prove and showcase their talents – be that in Scholastic or co – scholastic areas like dance, music, drama, sports or academics. The school assembly is a very unique platform where individuals and groups, class and House groups get to speak, sing, perform and receive accolades. Throughout the year, special assemblies are also plannted to celebrate and commemorate festivals and events. We believe that school life is not just about doing well in class but also being helpful and mature socially and spiritually.

Most religious, cultural, social and National festivals like Republic Day, Independence Day, Diwali, Lohri, Christmas, Teachers Day , Children’s Day , Environment Day, Cancer Awareness Day are recognized and a small performance including oratory, music and drama is given.
