To make the Podar Brand of Schools the First Choice School


With its aim to provide high quality academic & non-academic support to all Podar Education Network Schools, the former Curriculum Research and Development Centre, has transformed itself into the Podar Innovation Centre, a team of creative individuals who are extremely passionate about the way our schools function, not only academically but overall.

With a team of over a hundred multi-disciplinary educationists, the PIC has been constantly innovating to create effective elucidations to meet school requirements. The PIC provides expertise to the group schools to help improve their performance through best-in-class learning solutions and leadership programs.


“Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever.”

Driven by this quote from Mahatma Gandhi, Podar Innovation Centre comprises of a team, which is creative, energetic and passionate about learning.

The team has been providing learning solutions to the Podar Education Network schools under the able guidance of Mrs. Renee Bijlani since its inception in 2008. With a spirit high on learning, the team has grown in leaps and bounds from being a handful few in number.

“To succeed in your mission, you must have a single-minded
devotion to your goal.” – a quote that aptly describes the
PIC Team.

My sincere appreciation to the entire team for the tremendous
effort put in each day and for raising the bar of progress and
success for the department.

As is said, “A little progress each day leads to big results.”
In gratitude to the most self-motivated and dynamic team.
