Welcome to G D Goenka Public School


A curriculum for Holistic Development

We at GDGPSB strongly believe in holistic learning approach by giving equal importance to scholastics and co scholastic areas. Our curriculum in scholastic areas is based on core subjects focuses not on providing just knowledge, but also on the development of concepts, skills/competencies and ideas.

Students are encouraged to excel in the Music, Dance, Drama, Art, Technology, Physical Education and Personal, Social and Health Education for an all-round holistic development.

The key overall thrust of our curriculum and pedagogy is towards real understanding and towards learning how to learn – and away from the culture of rote learning. The aim of educating the Goenkans will not only be cognitive development, but also building character and creating holistic and well-rounded individuals equipped with the key 21st century skills. Ultimately, knowledge is a deep-seated treasure and education helps in its manifestation as the perfection which is already within an individual.

Learning by doing…@Experiential Learning

At GDGPSB, we closely follow Experiential Learning is the process of learning by doing. By engaging students in hands-on experiences and reflection, they are better able to connect theories and knowledge learned in the classroom to real-world situations.

Experiential learning opportunities exist in a variety of course- and non-course-based forms and may include community service, service-learning, undergraduate research, study abroad/away, and culminating experiences such as internships, student teaching, and capstone projects, to name a few.

When students participate in experiential education opportunities, they gain:

    • A better understanding of course material
    • A broader view of the world and an appreciation of community
    • Insight into their own skills, interests, passions, and values
    • Opportunities to collaborate with diverse organizations and people
    • Positive professional practices and skill sets
    • The gratification of assisting in meeting community needs
    • Self-confidence and leadership skills

Competency-based learning at G D Goenka

It is concerned chiefly with a student’s progression through curriculum at their own pace, depth, etc. As competencies are proven, students continue to progress. It is similar to mastery-based learning, with the primary difference being that competency-based learning often focuses on observable skills or ‘competencies,’ while mastery learning may be academic–as likely to focus on concepts as skills.

A key characteristic of this type of learning is its focus on mastery. In other learning models, students are exposed to content–whether*r skills or concepts–over time, and success is measured summatively. In a competency-based learning system, students are not allowed to continue until they have demonstrated mastery of the identified competencies (i.e., the desired learning outcomes to be demonstrated). In this way, the definition of competency-based learning is closely tied to mastery learning.
