“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi

Dear All,

Podar is a premier name in the field of education in India. It has a legacy of 96 years implementing the vision of the father of our nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Podar International Schools have reached to all parts of the country catering quality education to students. They make them skilled and competent to face the 21st-century challenges ahead.

I feel honoured and privileged to be the Principal of Podar International School, Chakan-Rohkal Pune. The school is located in a historical town Chakan in Pune district which is surrounded by natural beauty on the bank of Bhama river.

The school building is an epitome of an ideal architecture having world-class facilities aiming to provide the right environment to our students. We believe that each child develops differently. At PIS, Chakan-Rohkal, we understand this perfectly and provide our young learners with the most suitable learning environment where they can learn with absolute freedom. Our curriculum is developed with a special focus on a learner-centric approach ensuring all-round development of our students through the best use of modern resources and teaching methodologies. Podar Innovation Center, located at Head Office Mumbai, is committed to the same. The specialty of PIC is a systematic and centralized examination system which ensures the quality of assessment.

We believe that faculty members form the backbone of the school. Our teachers are our asset who nurture the generations. The teachers at PIS, Chakan-Rohkal are well- qualified, experienced, competent and dedicated. A model of learning : Explore – Experience – Implement is the centre of their teaching methodology. Modern technology equipments like projectors, visualizers are used in the teaching- learning process. They get many opportunities to update themselves by attending various training sessions organized by PIC and CBSE.

Extra-curricular activities like music, dance, debate and sports are an integral part of our curriculum. Students have to master all the skills to face the challenges of the competitive world. Our teachers ensure that all students get equal opportunities to choose their hobbies and games.

We know that today’s an age of competitive examinations. To make children aware of competitive exams, we conduct age-appropriate Olympiad exams and Talent Search examinations. Today’s young children would be responsible citizens of the country tomorrow as they are supposed to lead the nation. At PIS, Chakan-Rohkal, we inculcate life skills, spiritual and moral values among the students to make them good human beings.

Safety of all the stakeholders is among the top priorities of the school. Therefore the school ensures the safety of all its stakeholders. Trained and competent security personnel, CCTV surveillance are some of the important features of the school. Zero tolerance policy on corporal punishment is observed at the school.

All children are the gift of God and they are unique. Hence at our school every kid’s individuality is prioritized and the kids are groomed properly, guided , cared for and their weaknesses are overcome. The admission process at PIS, Chakan-Rohkal is very systemic and transparent with no entrance test, no donation, no deposit demanded. Parents are members of our PIS family. For us, they are valuable members of the school and with combined efforts of parents, teachers, the school management, we achieve our goal .i.e. all round development of our students.

This happens because a model culture of communication among parents, teachers and the school management is developed at the school. As Podar International School Chakan-Rohkal is in service of creating good human beings, successful and responsible citizen, I look forward to your constant support and co-operation. We welcome you to contribute to the school’s development.

Let’s join in this mission of creating responsible citizens, good human beings and thus contribute to the nation- building.
