Welcome to Podar International School ICSE, Nerul

As a opening statement I quote in the words of Mahatma Gandhi on Education “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself “

According to my principle of leadership, I am fully confident in contributing and to work hard with passion, dedication, and commitment to serve the school in Scholastic and non Scholastic processes .The development of the school over the past few years has been significant.

The school is striving in all parameters to bring the best in each Child by introducing, developing programmes and events which help school set the system right as this will act as catalyst in the process of paving the pathway leading to excellence

In reference to the Vision and Mission statement of Podar International School ICSE Nerul which prepares the students and teachers with positive attitude ,a supporting relationships ,and encouraging each member of the school to strive in innovation, curiosity, creative approach, critical thinking ,reasoning and problem solving. The school believes in providing conducive atmosphere for overall development of personality, emphasis on character building and ethics.

With the dawn of the first rays of sun adore the walls of PIS (ICSE) Nerul heralds the warm message of welcome to all our students and as they make the entrance to the portal of the school. The silence of dawn with its immense energy embarking on living things and with the same note ,the VISION and MISSON of the school rhythms and dances around the life of each child in our school. At Podar each child is important and precious.

Our motto is summed in adjectives as SMILE –Strong, Magnanimous, Inquisitive, Liberal, and Eager. We believe that young and tender minds grow with experiences of each year adding to their positive growth, be it may well designed and defined events and program’s.

These events bring out in each child the inert potential and talent to expose and explore in the world of healthy competition. We believe in participation rather only winning. Participation is the paver blocks leading to achievement.

The school believes in sensitizing each child towards social responsibility and self improvement. The core value of the school is to sensitize in each student towards civic sense and social responsibilities. We believe nurturing in each child for challenges of tomorrow. Every day experiences in the life of the child add to the exponential growth of mind, body and spirit.

We as educators believe in developing in each student to maximize their potential .In our school the students are encouraged to appreciate and value each opportunity given to them.

We inculcate social responsibility and civic sense. We strive to develop a concern and active respect for the environment.

We as dedicated and passionate team at our school always thrive to embark on new methodology of teaching and learning with the inclusion of modern technology in our system and processes. The curriculum is enriching, engaging and challenging to suite the 21st century requirement of knowledge and application leading to the apt requirement of the ICSE/ ISC Board rules and regulations.

We focus on positive attitude to learning through activities and direct experiences. Sustain intrinsic motivation and develop confident and independent learners. Build a new base of competencies among the students and teachers. The school believes in equality with quality education.

As Principal it is important for me that my student’s, teacher’s, staff and parents become partners in this journey that we have embarked upon. We encourage all our stake holders to give the best in nurturing the school. I request all our parents to support and cooperate in all our endeavors.

I encourage the parents to be active member to contribute their expertise whenever need arises. Let us all commit in making greater effort to bring success and glory to this esteem institution. Let us all join hands together in upholding the institutional values and to sustain its name on the National and Global map.

I look forward in working with you and with your children. Our continued success depends upon your feedback. With thought for mind, I quote “I never teach my pupils, I only provide the conditions in which they can learn “by Albert Einstein.
