What's it like to be part of GIIS family

Mr Rajiv Singh Sawhney
Father of Sarah Sawhney

Methodologies like collaborative learning with peers from around the world will equip my daughter with the right knowledge and skills to excel in future.

I find it encouraging to notice the teachers keeping track of the homework assignments and providing feedback if any for the children to work on. This leads to children wanting to better themselves in the specified area. I have also observed the class teacher to compliment children on their extracurricular activities, such as art, dance, etc whenever the child show their work. It adds a lot of value and elevates the morale of the child.

The coordination & the constant encouragement given to the children and especially to the parents by the teachers went a long way to push us parents to train our children with patience. And really shows how much effort teachers actually take in school to train the children if it were under normal circumstances.
