Chairman's message

Dear parents and students,
Welcome to GISB,
Education encompasses teaching and learning specific skills, and also something less tangible but more profound: the imparting of knowledge, positive judgment and well-developed wisdom. The Geethanjali group of Institutions was founded keeping in mind these ideals about education. From the beginning, with the establishment of each and every institution, we have inched closer to the perfect balance between intellect, experience and rationale of knowledge, thereby creating a perfect atmosphere wherein the transfusion of all of those mentioned above can take place effortlessly.
Gitanjali International School Bangalore (GISB) is a happy culmination of painstaking research, deep soul searching and an intense desire to develop a world class educational campus with a warm and friendly atmosphere rooted in Indian ethos. The concept of ‘Change’ is always welcome at GISB as the horizon of knowledge, especially in the world we live today, seems to be broadening every single day. Hence it is only wise to create a system of learning and living wherein there is a constant flux of activities and infrastructure so as to ensure the development and exposure of young minds to new value based education and latest technologies that aid in the value delivery of education.
Apart from being an administrator, I have donned the role of a student once and a professor as well, and having experienced both faces of the coin, it is of my opinion that the relation between a teacher and student is symbiotic in nature and one cannot exist without the other. It has always been a firm belief of mine in the ideals of George Bernard Shaw when he states: “What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.”
Thank you

  From the Secretary's Desk
Being a child in today’s world is no easy task as children have immense access to information and resources, sometimes bordering on the edge of information overload. To process and assimilate such volumes of necessary and unnecessary information, It is of penultimate importance that child develop human skills such as the ability to reason and creativity. A child’s mind should be given enough space to grow and explore itself and it should not be bound by what others think it should do. This is challenging as we live in an era where there are dedicated multimedia conglomerates that have made children their economic demographic targets.
It is my belief that the mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled and as such it is important to create a learning environment wherein children not merely absorb information that is given to them but they are able to interpret the same and apply it to their surroundings and activities.  
GISB was established with this singular view of providing the child a balanced learning environment inculcating educational curricula, experiential learning through field trips and learning through peers. This activity coupled with the unequivocal individual attention to children makes their development more wholesome.  
The child is at the centre of ours and the parent’s universe and it is our belief that whatever we do should be oriented towards enriching the child’s life and aid him/her on their Journey towards Excellence.

About Cambridge
While many of you may be familiar with the Indian system of education – CBSE which in itself is undergoing a sea of transformation so as to orient itself along the lines of leading international syllabi such as Cambridge.
Cambridge is a global curriculum that is offered by the prestigious University of Cambridge through its CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) certified centres such as GISB. GISB offers not only the IGCSE ‘O’ levels (Xth grade) but also the GCSE ‘AS’ and ‘A’ levels (11th and 12th Grades).
Cambridge IGCSE encourages learner-centered and enquiry-based approaches to learning. It develops learners’ skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving, giving learners excellent preparation for the next stage in their education. Clearly defined learning outcomes and content, mean Cambridge IGCSE is compatible with other curricula and is internationally relevant and sensitive to different needs and cultures. In India, all higher education regulatory bodies such as AICTE, MCI, amongst many others, recognize the Cambridge certification
Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:
• Subject content
• Applying knowledge and understanding to familiar and new situations
• Intellectual enquiry
• Flexibility and responsiveness to change
• Working and communicating in English
• Influencing outcomes
• Cultural awareness
Assessment for Cambridge IGCSE includes written and oral tests, coursework and practical assessment. GISB offers its pupils the option of assessment by way of combining examinations with coursework. Coursework is set and marked by the teacher and externally moderated by Cambridge.
Teachers who have received training from Cambridge, or who possess suitable experience of marking coursework carry out these assessments. In most subjects there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities. Each learner’s performance is benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades. There are clear guidelines which explain the standard of achievement for different grades. Cambridge IGCSE examination sessions occur twice a year, in May/June and October/November. Thereby students can split their academic workload amongst these assessment sessions, in consultation with the centre co-ordinator.
