The school management is highly concerned about the safety of all children within the school premises. To further reflect this concern, we maintain round-the-clock CCTV surveillance of the entire campus and have manned all external doors and gates to restrict any unauthorized access into the school.
As the playground is to a player, the classroom is to a learner.
Classrooms at GD Goenka are spacious, centrally air conditioned and have proper lighting arrangements. We ensure our students get classrooms that are not only airy, but also attractive and comfortable. The number of students in each class is restricted, so that the teachers give individual attention to each student. Aesthetically designed furniture has been provided in each classroom, keeping in mind the comfort of the child. Each classroom of Pre-School and Pre-Primary has a different color scheme.
2. Smart Class
Over the last few decades, everything has changed in our lives with the all pervasive intervention of technology.
Smart class brings about a complete transformation in classrooms where the teacher can explain the fine points of the process, zoom in to show the relevant visuals freeze and annotate when and where she needs to emphasize engaging animations, colors, music, sounds and voice. The teachers gain complete attention and interest of every child in the class. Every child gets a visual input on how it happens and the concepts are well understood and internalized.
Towards the end of the class, every teacher displays a set of questions on a large screen; every child in class gets ready to answer the questions with their personal answering device. Students click the answers and instantly teachers are able to get a score sheet for every child in class. She ends the class reinforcing the contents of the lesson that were not understood well by students.
This results in faster and accurate understanding of the concepts in class and helps to improve the overall academic performance of students. Teachers are able to keep students engaged in the learning process and also get an instant and accurate assessment of learning outcomes achieved at the end of the class.

Expenditure on books is the investment for future.
Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.
The early years of a student’s life are invariably the most crucial ones. They constitute the golden period when a student can make or break his/her career. When it comes to laying the foundation stone for your child’s future, it’s not just mental peace that counts; physical surroundings also play a key role in shaping his/her outlook towards life in general.
‘It’s not so important who starts the game but who finishes it.’ here lies the importance of playgrounds in schools. Students at G. D. Goenka School are encouraged to play a variety of sports.
Cricket, Tennis, table tennis, badminton, basketball, boxing, athletics and gymnastics tournaments are included the sports calendar. Facilities exist for all indoor and outdoor games. Park equipment designed especially for the Pre Primary School children keeps them active and in good spirits. The school has its own swimming pool within the premises with separate change room and showers for boys and girls. Every class has a period allotted for swimming in its timetable. The puddle pool is specially designed for our little ones and a qualified trained lifeguard ensures the safety of each child.
Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.
A quality gym under a trained instructor incorporates fitness education rather than just playing games. Kids learn about the significance of what they are doing in gym class and why they need to stay active in life. Whether a child exercises at home, he won’t always get the instruction aspect that he receives in gym class. The teachers also perform evaluations and assessments of the students and their fitness knowledge. Goenkans have well equipped modern facility gym to give them a break that benefits them when they return to the classroom after sitting for long periods. Students are often able to focus better after a session of physical activity as it offers a mood boost for the students.

Every care is taken to ensure the students’ health. In case of a serious illness firstly the parents are informed and accordingly action is taken either to send the child home or transfer him/her to the hospital. Parents are requested to keep the school authorities informed about any specific medical problem that a child may have.
