Best CBSE schools in Pune

As your child makes the transition from a primary school to a secondary one, there are important things you will need to consider. To make this child transition a happy and positive experience, it is important to consider which school will best benefit your child’s learning and development. A child’s preparation for their CBSE exams does not just begin in their 9th and 10th grades. It’s a process that takes place across their years in secondary school. So, it becomes crucial to choose the right secondary school from the get go. There are several excellent CBSE schools in Pune. Here are a few things to consider to make your decision a little easier.

 

Your child’s interests

 

By the time your child is ready to enter secondary school, they will have a good understanding of what they’re interested in. While you, as an adult and your child’s parent, are obviously the best judge of what the appropriate choice of school for your child is, do also consider your child’s non-academic interests and hobbies. What are they particularly interested in? From sports to the performing arts, where do their interests lie? At GIIS Chinchwad, one of the best CBSE schools in Pune, extracurricular from art to sports is available for your child to discover new interests and develop older ones.

The school’s identity

Each school has their own set of unique advantages and disadvantages. Do enough research so you can learn about them in advance. When conducting your research, you should learn about the following:

 

  • The school’s mission
  • The culture of the school
  • The school’s values

 

For instance, GIIS Chinchwad’s objective is to offer a strong focus on imparting quality education, while simultaneously facilitating academic learning, sports and extracurricular activities. Striking the right balance is an important part of the school’s mission.

The school’s past performance

 

How is the school performing? Take a look at the school’s website. Does it seem friendly and inviting? Look at the latest numbers. How does the school fair amongst other international schools in Pune? Look at the latest test scores but note that while this gives you some idea of the school’s academics, it doesn’t tell the whole story. Tests and scores are only one aspect of what makes for a good school.

 

But most importantly, what is your instinct?

This is the most important part: you may not be able to explain why you feel one school is a better fit for your little one than another, but that’s okay. Keep your antennae on high alert when you visit, and go with your gut instinct. Your child’s happiness is paramount. Can you picture your child in this environment? Would they be happy there? If the answer is yes, then that school is the right one for your child.

An insight into ancient civilizations

The world as we see it today with its myriad cultures and languages can only be appreciated if we explore the history of the major ancient civilizations that thrived and still exist in some form after a prolonged evolution. Each civilization that exists and has existed has to it a kaleidoscope of culture, lifestyle, music and literature. With ancient civilizations, it’s the same thing, but on a grander scale. We as a society are directly descended from ancient societies like Egypt, China and Harappa, because their ideas and beliefs have been shared and passed down through so many cultures. So we can learn about our society and culture by studying them.

GIIS considers itself a pioneer in the field of education and therefore studying the evolution of the education systems in the ancient civilizations becomes not only interesting but also useful as a model .The selection of this topic as an ISA project for students of class 6 to 8 was hence intriguing and fun. Each class was assigned with a different civilization with the same learning objectives. The research put in by the students enriched them with knowledge that goes beyond the textbooks. Reading about these civilizations also helped them understand the evolvement of the human race in a larger context.

Students presented a beautiful exhibition of all the three civilizations that depicted the cultures and lifestyles of each civilization. Students also dressed up in the cultural attire of Egypt, China and Harappa and spoke earnestly about the magnificence of these rich civilizations. Parents were very happy to see the efforts put in by the students and teachers.

SPACE STARS

 

It takes only two words to illuminate the face of any child. The word Annual Function seems to possess that very magic. It brings a brigade of extensive labor, palpitating hearts and a deep commitment to prove oneself on the stage. The annual cultural function of the Global Indian International School Chinchwad was testimony to the fact that all good things come in small packages. A two day musical extravaganza presented by the little wonders of Pre Nursery to K II on Tuesday & Wednesday, February 7 & 8 was a delightful display of their talent.

The tiny tots from Pre Nursery to Kg-II took to the stage with utmost ease and comfort leaving everyone spell bound. Their tentative steps and exceptional confidence left everyone awestruck and surprised. On the theme of “Space Stars”, the kids presented a pageant of the myriad verticals of space and the celestial bodies laced beautifully with props that added the sense of wonderment to the colorful delight.

The Chief Guest on day one was Mr. Prashant Chopade, Vice President, MAHLE Behr India Pvt. Ltd. He along with his wife graced the occasion and encouraged the young students. On day 2, Ms Sonali Kothari honored the event with her presence. The 2 day gala was a feast to the eyes of the parents as they watched the tiny tots performing beautifully. The dances, song and even the dialogues that were put on display vindicated the genuine efforts of all.

Principal Dr Vohra says, “During the Annual Functions each child gets a platform to show case ones talent in dance, music (vocal and instrumental) and dramatics. This is an endeavor towards building a sense of confidence in the hearts of the young ones.”

As our country progresses towards acknowledging, celebrating and living the freedom, we must remember that the freedom that we now take for granted has been presented to us by the freedom fighters and the true son of soils that devoted their life to our motherland, ensuring the freedom of their predecessors.

We are the proud Indians

As the national flag swayed in the light breeze on the morning of January 26, 2017, on the 68th Republic Day of a country so great- India, hearts swelled with pride and souls celebrated with freedom. The morning assembly at Global Indian International School to observe the Republic Day of our country reiterated that we are set to become a leading nation of this world, ready to break barriers and clichés while moving ahead with a progressive outlook.

The flag hoisting ceremony at the onset charged the hallways as the national anthem resonated the pride of this country. The hallmark of this nation lies in the varied cultures stitched together though a geographical boundary, laced with mutual love and respect. This was followed by a wonderful skit on the constitution day, marked with the major scenes of history. A young student, Charu through her electric poetry mesmerized the audience building in them the nostalgia of freedom and struggle.  The dance performance from the young students was a beautiful rejoicing of the love for this country while the song presentation by the school choir proved to be a rendition of our glorified country.

Principal Dr Amrita Vohra in her address urged the students to reflect back on their freedom and realize how fortunate we are to be living a life with a free spirit. She also spoke that now is the time to change and we should not procrastinate thinking that at a later time we will do something. The duty of each one of us should be to serve the moment.

To soar high in the sky

Kites are a beautiful symbol of the inherent human nature to soar high in the sky and succeed. It is an ancient practice of the Indian culture and appeals to everybody irrespective of their gender, caste or creed. However, kite flying is observed to have a very positive impact on young children. Science has proved that the stimulation provided by kites-its bright colors and the high-flying nature is loved by all children.

Global Indian International School gave its students a fantastic opportunity of making their own kites on the occasion of Makr Sankranti. The excitement and thrill seen in the students was indeed contagious. They chose the colors and accessories with which they wished to create their kites. One major highlight was to pass a message for the welfare of the community and the world at large. Students made kites with messages like “Save Tigers”, “Save Water” and “Educate the girl child”.

Dr Vohra, Principal on the occasion said, “While we celebrate the festivals, it is important to reiterate to the students some of the key issues that are faced by the world today. We believe that when these young students take up the causes, results are sure to be achieved.”

Eureka! Thinking takes a new leap

Creativity requires the courage to let go of the certainties and redefine the concepts and the students of Global Indian International School have always stood apart for their creative and innovative thinking. Challenging themselves and thinking out of the box to deliver excellent results is the highlight of the GIISians.

Embarking on the journey of thinking beyond the horizon and bringing to life the concepts that are taught in the confinement of the classrooms, GIIS Chinchwad held the annual exhibition- EUREKA, by the students of Class 1 and 2 on Saturday, January 21, 2017. Each student of each section participated wholeheartedly in the annual event, collectively to make splendid projects on Science, English, Math and Geography. The students worked together in teams as well as created individual projects displaying their articulate work with confidence and ease. Models on Food Pyramid, Gregorian calendar, smart city, weights and measures, solar system, rain water harvesting, energy and many others were put on display. Parents were impressed on the preparation and the facts which the students shared.

The highlight was also the Michelangelo segment which beautifully and magnificently flaunted the art works of the students that were creations of their thoughts dipped in paint and splashed on canvas. The kiosks of 3D Printing hub and Engineering for kids showcased the technological revolution of creating models. Parents were intrigued to see the projects created by students and spent time understanding the fundamentals.

An outcome of sheer hard work and dedication of the students, each project served as a fantastic way for the students to learn practically the various intricacies of the subject. They were eager to talk about their respective projects and impress upon people the importance of it. Parents complimented the students, teachers and the school for holding this exhibition and giving a chance to the students of exhibiting their creativity and talent.
