Despite Devika joining the school in the middle of the academic year, she was able to easily adapt to the new environment and teaching techniques. All thanks to the supportive, helpful and motivating teachers at GIIS. One aspect of the school that stood out to me is the importance placed on co-curricular activities alongside academics. The school regularly organizes various competitions and platforms for students to showcase their talents.
