“While one is young is the time to investigate, to experiment with everything.
The school should help its young people to discover their vocations and responsibilities, and not merely cram their minds with facts and technical knowledge; it should be the soil in which they can grow without fear, happily and integrally.”

- J. Krishnamurti,

Learning is an inevitable consequence of human condition. We all are natural learners, born with an insatiable curiosity. We learn a great deal on our own, in independent study or play, interacting with others, through trial and error. People of all ages can learn when their curiosity and intrinsic motivation to explore the world are sufficiently ignited.

I believe my role as an educator is to ignite intrinsic motivation, guide and nurture the next generation to establish skills to achieve health, respect, awakening them to the power and beauty that lies within all of us.

Holistic development of children, raising the traditional standards of educational to equip our children to overcome the challenges of the 21st century is the driving principle of Podar International School.

We place great importance on nurturing and developing the critical thinking abilities, life-skills, promoting self esteem, fostering creativity, using technology in education, making all podarites proud citizens and responsible torch bearers of tomorrow.
