“It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts....it is to teach them to think, if it is possible, and always to think for themselves.” - Robert Hutchins
Mr Anjani Kumar Goenka has been a successful businessman and has achieved a lot in areas like real estate, grain and garment exports, travel and tourism and many more. A revolutionary entrepreneur, Mr A.K.Goenka has made a valuable contribution to both business as well as education. His constant endeavour to upgrade and improvise has revolutionized the way most business houses function.
Mr Goenka has always taken keen interest in the field of education. He soon realized that education holds the key to a developed India. He believes that education should not be limited to simply imparting knowledge. Education must teach people to become independent thinkers. It must ignite a desire to acquire knowledge. It must prepare students for life. For this we must take education beyond the walls of the classroom. We must train our students to become responsible citizens not only of India but of the world. Globalization has opened innumerable opportunities and we must train our students to lead the nation in such a new world.
Mr Goenka believes in maintaining the highest standards in terms of quality. Consequently the name G. D. Goenka has become synonymous with world class infrastructure and facilities. All schools under this group are equipped with the best teachers, sports facilities, classrooms, laboratories and transport facilities.
A safe learning environment with world class facilities....What more could one ask for? Such a unique system of education has revolutionized education in our country taking India into the global arena and providing a platform where schools of other countries can actually learn from us.
