I have taken charge as the Principal of this institution on 18th April 2010. I am also grateful to the Managing Committee for entrusting me an institution which has come up with the patronage, vision & ideas of great people like K.M.Munshi, Prof.T.S.Sadasivan etc.
Set in a caring environment Bhavans Gandhi Vidyashram, Kodaikanal is progressive child centered school, driven by values .It aims for both academic excellence and holistic development of each child, reaching beyond the curriculum through personalized attention.
We aim to combine the cultural needs of children with modern pedagogy techniques. We aspire to provide personal, social, spiritual, emotional and educational growth in a cross cultural context by fostering in students life skills, skills of leadership and entrepreneurship to take off the challenges presented by competitive, ever changing globalised environment by introducing the Activity method- Learning by Doing. This integrated programme emphasizes individualized attention, enabling the student to discover and develop his or her multiple capabilities providing a caring, creative yet structured environment for our pupil to grow and learn in it giving sufficient scope for thinking, creativity and originality.
Our expectations are high not only from our students but from staff as well. Each one must recognize the value of a caring and motivational atmosphere and be aware of the need to work in partnership with parents for the future success of the students so as to prepare them the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
I envision my students as global citizens and responsible decision makers and that gives me more pride than any thing else. I invite all parents and teachers to participate in realizing this. It will be a challenge and let us face it together to give a better tomorrow to our children..
