‘In the overall ambit of life, a person armed with a good education is bestowed with an advantage in the quest for success.’

Welcome to Podar International School, Shirur. A new academic year brings forth new challenges and thankfully new opportunities. To excel from the heights of achievements, requires re-dedication to our ideals as an institution. A famous philosopher said “Life is a state of continued becoming, with a goal in front and not behind”. How true! The time has come for us – not to rest on past laurels – but to pursue with renewed vigour, newer, higher targets.

At Podar International school Shirur, we are on a journey to making education more meaningful and engaging in the classroom. We believe that each child is unique and gifted and a child’s capacity to learn and create is infinite.

At Podar International School, my endeavour is to expertly juggle academics with the language of philanthropy, goodness, love and relationships. My aim is to continue to forge ahead on the path of creating "leaders" with vigour and gusto.

We are proud and privileged that you have chosen us to be a part of your child’s journey towards a great future. Let us join hands together in imparting good values to our youngsters and make each one of them a good human being.

And as the cliché goes, last but not the least, I expect all my young Students to focus on their cherished goals and strive hard to accomplish them transcending mediocrity and procrastination.

I am honored to be the Principal of Podar International School.
