sports and wellbeing
Sport is a vital component of our holistic approach to education and we encourage and educate students to lead a healthy lifestyle through active participation.
A wide range of sports will be on offer with the completion of the Sports Hall, Fitness Centre, Gymnastics Centre and Swimming Pool. These will include: basketball, football, cricket, handball, Athletics, Martial Arts and volleyball. Students aiming for competitive levels of participation will be catered for alongside more ‘casual’ sportspeople. Our Gymnastics Centre offers a bespoke space for developing skills under the tutelage of a top-level coach. All sports education is run by very experienced teachers.
With our roof top 25m pool all students will receive regular swim coaching as part of their PE programme. Opportunities will exist to join a Swim Team and Club participating in inter school, regional and national events where possible. Recreational swimming will also be available.
With a modern fitness centre our students will learn about lifelong activities that lead to good health. Wellbeing is a state of mind that supports a students’ state of mind and could be seen in activities like Yoga and Mindfulness training.
Extra Curricular Activities
Sports clubs and recreation will be vital opportunities every day for our students. Other clubs will include: Yoga, Film Appreciation, Homework Club, Mandarin, Modern and Indian Dance, Martial Arts amongst others.
The term 'Art' includes a wide spectrum of experiences that enrich human life: the Visual Arts, Performing Arts like music and dance, Speech and Drama, and others forms of creativity as well. Our commitment to our students’ continuing engagement with art is evident in the Arts spaces that we provide them with – like our Performing Arts Studio and our Design and Visual Art studios – and through the impressive team of art teachers we pull together.
Life skills and Values Education
To achieve our motto, 'Engaging Minds, Changing Futures', our children need to be empowered with more than just academic knowledge. They need to have interpersonal and social skills as well. Our Life Skills sessions at Garodia International Centre for Learning Mumbai's new international institute help students from Grades 3 to 5 manage hostile emotions like anger, and help them deal with failure and bullying. The weekly sessions also help them set goals and make friends.
Our Incubation Centre and the structured Entrepreneurship sessions we conduct, expose students in their early teens to a vibrant and dynamic process early in life – that of thinking like an entrepreneur. Using games, events, simulations and important Life Skills lessons, this module aims to equip students with the basic tools, ideas and the safe space to be entrepreneurs.
PSHCE and Counselling
All students at Garodia International Centre for Learning Mumbai undertake a weekly programme that encourages them to tackle personal situations and learn how to be better citizens. A strong, values minded person is liable to do well academically. For those students who wish to receive extra help with academic and personal issues, then Garodia International Centre for Learning Mumbai has a full time Student Counsellor fully trained to offer such support.
