The Class X Batch of 2016 has added a feather in the cap for Global Indian International School (GIIS) Chinchwad campus by achieving academic excellence in CBSE examinations. Today, the school stands tall with pride, showcasing outstanding Class X results of 40 % students receiving a perfect score of CGPA 10 and the entire batch qualifying with 100% distinction.
Excellence is achieved through innovative education delivery system coupled with the over-all growth of the students. The proprietary 9 Nine Gems™ holistic learning framework is an integration of best practices in education from across the globe. It is measured with metrics and monitored consistently to enhance scores on an average by 10% to 15%, thereby achieving maximum learning outcomes in every student.
The 9 Gems model of the Global Schools Foundation that reflects holistic grooming of each child beautifully stitching the strands of nine important layers of a 360 degree education was introduced to the parents. From academics to sports, creativity to leadership, arts to community service, each gem makes an important component of a student’s personality. It is an honor to have students excelling in each gem of the model and GIIS Chinchwad showcased with pride its achievers under each Gem. Champions from fields like dance, yoga, chess, creativity, innovation, visual arts, performing arts, and National and International Olympiads were also applauded for their respective winning streaks.
“The essence of positive education is infused in 9 gems, which is based on the theory of positive psychology. Life skills, resilience, signature character strengths and mindfulness prepare individuals to become world-ready. All this is drawn from the experiences provided through our structured education delivery system. Learning is, therefore, not restricted to subject concepts only but it is about inculcating positive work habits in the students, which would eventually equip them to face real world situations and help them lead a complete and positive life.” Said Dr. Amrita Vohra, Principal- GIIS Chinchwad
