PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

"Education is not preparation of life, it is life itself."

"An educational system isn’t worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn’t teach them how to make a life".

Education is development of mind. It is rightly said that it begins from the womb to the tomb. As child takes birth into this world, the child is introduced to new things .Sense of sight, sense of touch, sense of hearing gives the first experience of this beautiful world. Colored objects , Moving animals and birds, sounds of animals, touch of loving parents and varied experiences are the initial learning.

As the child grows the mind opens and the horizon of knowledge widens. When the child enters the portals of school with kindergarten, then the horizon of knowledge further widens with languages and subjects. This knowledge not only inculcates a spirit to cherish life but also teaches to learn from past and build the present to create a beautiful future. What follow after schooling is vocation and a quest to fulfill ambitions and reach one’s goal. Everything that is learnt decides the quality of life in future.

"Education is movement from Darkness to light"

As life takes twists and turns one realizes that education is not confined to a degree. It is but bundle of experiences enriching and leading to self realization. An educated person is the one who is rich in experience and who has realized the significance of living morally upright and conscientious life in peace.

Therefore one cannot differentiate education from life as it is life itself. Education is interwoven in each and every incidence which gives our life its form and makes us the individuals that we are.

Similar tradition of ethical and philosophical education commenced in the year 1927, when the first Podar School was founded at Santacruz, Mumbai.

Since inception Podar has provided a platform for varied learning and produced individuals who are imbibed with high moral values. Podarities believe in preparing students to face life successfully. It is exposing students with our traditional values with a global touch. Modern facilities, ICT enabled classrooms with excellent networking, lush green grounds, trained ,qualified, dedicated staff and a safe learning environment makes it fun filled learning journey for the students.

Students receive education which celebrates our rich and diverse culture, helping them realize that we are a part of a society. Social commitment by outreach programme is the strength of our school.

The holistic education provided at our school helps to nurture the skills in the best possible way. We believe that the young brigade at Podar International School has the potential and finesse to take lead of their life, family, and society at large. Podarities stand apart in the crowd as they believe in a will to make a positive difference in the society.

"Knowing is not enough, we must apply, Being willing is not enough, we must do".
