A warm greetings to Dear Parents!!!

I cordially welcome you to Podar International School Udupi.

Podar International School is an endeavour by the Podar Group led by Dr. Pawan Podar to prepare students of the 21st century through its education arm “Podar Education Network”

Podar International School’s journey towards education excellence began in 1927 with an ideal mix of academic and corporate professionals who felt the shared need to provide inclusive education.

Father of our Nation Mahatma Gandhi was the first president of” Podar Education Trust”, once said: "Education means all-round drawing out of the best in child and man—body, mind, and spirit." As such, education becomes the basis of personality development in all dimensions—moral, mental, and emotional. At Podar, we challenge our students with a unique educational experience which emphasizes a seamless blend of academics, sports, performing arts, community and experiential learning program. We at Podar believe in this very concept ‘Traditional value and Modern Thoughts’ when it applied to the simple but refined approach of Mahatma Gandhi, it provides us with a new dimension of educational development.

We believe that every child is born unique. Each child has a unique brain network that shapes how he/she takes up and responds to stimuli. One way of teaching does not work for every child. We need to teach the way they learn, not force them to learn the way we teach. Education should foster real understanding. Schools are not only assembly lines of syllabus and exams but the world beyond it. We help children to make meaning of life and develop the muscle to lead life successfully. For this, we go beyond academics to include life skills, values and habits.

PIS, Udupi is an eco-system school where different factors have an effect on the child. Teachers, curriculum, assessments, environment, infrastructure, activities all come together to nurture the unique potential of the child. We envision a robust, vibrant and holistic school education that will engender excellence in every sphere of human endeavour.

We are committed to provide quality education to promote intellectual, social and cultural vivacity among its learners. It works towards evolving a learning process and environment, which empowers the future citizens to become global leaders in the emerging knowledge society. We are also committed to providing a stress-free learning environment that will develop competent, confident and enterprising citizens who will promote harmony and peace.

PIS, Udupi is a wonderful place for students to develop the right approach of learning- explore, experience and implement.

The success of PIS, Udupi is largely due to its trained, qualified and committed teaching staff and the extensive use of technology in teaching.

We provide equal opportunity to all the students to enlarge their spontaneous learning through school activities and meaningful learning experiences.

We always welcome parents’ constructive feedbacks for the development of our students and cherish their success together. We expect continuous support of our parents in our mission and vision to equip our students for the challenges of 21st Century, to be the best and be recognised as raising the traditional standards of educational possibilities and outcomes for students, parents and society.

Education should not be confined to four walls class rooms and it shall be beyond this. It means, all round development of the child in all aspects like physically, intellectually, emotionally, morally and social development. Character and values to be inculcated among the children’s day today learning and in their future life too.

Lessons on moral values to be taught to the children apart from the text books.

Allow the child to face the global challenges of the world in all competitions.

The education should be in such a way that multivalent of the child should be explored and fostered. Creativity, new and innovative ideas to be tapped from the students mind in different forms by crating the platforms to express those.

Knowledge and skills from all the areas to be taught effectively while imparting curriculum to the children in the class rooms.

Focus the child to learn effective communication in all the languages as it is need of the hour in today’s competitive world.

Make the child to be fit in all round development by becoming socially useful productive person. Feeling of oneness, brotherhood, patriotism, respect to young and elders, equality among male and female, compassion, commitment should be imbibed among children.

Instil the confidence among the children to lead their life in the society with love, respect, harmony among all the religions. Casts and creeds. Finally prepare the children to contribute maximum to the Nation by becoming good human being and good citizen of our great country.

With best wishes,

Mr. Udayakumara A.N
