From the very inception, GPS offers primary school education. Subsequently, GPS adding one class every year to grow to the stature of a secondary school with classes from I to X. The school offers the National Curriculum recommended by NCERT and follows CBSE syllabus. Instruction is through the medium of English, with Oriya/Hindi as options for the 2nd language. We use a curriculum developed by the management specially designed to address the learners' need to have lessons that are more relevant, enjoyable, challenging and creative. Students will learn in multiple ways - working in groups, using discovery techniques, exploring learning centers in the classrooms and community resources. Overall, the curriculum aims to holistically develop the knowledge, skills and attitude of the child. Teachers at GPS use innovative and creative methods to incorporate value and life skills education in all school activities - academic, co-curricular and sports. Classes held every day of the week except Sundays and designated holidays. While the children are provided with regular homework to ensure that they keep up with their studies, every care is taken to see that they are not overburdened with work. The school will enforce strict punctuality. The teaching staff constantly strives to pay attention to the individual needs of the children without discriminating amongst them.
At GPS, children are encouraged to develop inherent interests, and at the same time explore other activities. The emphasis lies in helping them to develop an all-round personality with equal importance for traditional values on one hand and the modern contemporary art form on the other. The students learn to work with their hands and minds gaining appreciation of artistic creation with music, casio, dance, Taekwondo, drama, elocution, literary competition, speech, debate, drawing, painting and sculpting etc.
Children generally love sports and games. GPS promises excellent sports infrastructure with a ground for football, cricket, athletics, Basketball and throw ball courts including carom, chess and many more. It is through active sports and games, the children achieve physical fitness, improve concentration, learn about team work under the strict vigilance of experts and learn to accept both triumph and defeat with calmness. It helps each child to become a more gracious competitor, a more committed team player and a more confident person.
