It is indeed a pleasure and matter of pride to be associated with the Podar Education Network covering 149+ schools and 2,30,000+ students across India whose legacy is long and enduring, and which has made education a mission and quality the fulcrum of its commitment.

Welcome to Podar International School, Junagadh. The city is located in Saurashtra region of the state of Gujrat and being bounded by Girnar hill and forest range having a very diverse climate.

As a Principal of PIS Junagadh, I am delighted that the school’s values align with my own personal values, including the importance of trust, respect, innovation and a sense of community. Our student’s future will build on these firm foundations focusing on the quality of school life, especially for the benefit of our learners. The curriculum will continue to be regularly reviewed as per the NEP 2020 to ensure that it remains appropriate to the needs of our learners. Our programs aim to provide an opportunity for Holistic development of children.

I believe that every child is unique and special creation of almighty God. As educators, it is our responsibility to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life by acquiring 21st Century skills like Critical thinking, Communication skills, Creativity, Problem solving, Perseverance, Collaboration, Financial literacy, Digital literacy and Technology skills (Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Data Science, Cloud computing etc.). Learners are continually encouraged to appreciate our diverse community and to care for others by becoming global citizens, and develop a concern and active respect for the environment for sustainable growth.

We strongly believe in the importance of teachers, parents and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. We continually improve the quality of tools of communication, including giving our parents access to an interactive portal like Looplearning and Betweenus where they can retrieve pertinent information about their children's academic achievement. You are encouraged to regularly check our school website, facebook page and read about student’s participation in exciting Scholastic and Co-Scholastic activities.

I look forward to build a culture of excellence and embodiment of values.

I wish happy learning at Podar International School, Junagadh.

Mr. Vinay Upadhyay,
Principal, Podar International School - Junagadh
