Principal's Message

Being Principal of Podar International School (PIS), Khandwa, I feel myself privileged. As I am in this Nobel Profession of teaching for more than two decades, I have experienced that “The school is a place where Human Values are nurtured along with the academic development of children. In PIS, we allow our children to grow in Healthy & Happy atmosphere. It’s our believe that “Plants are fashioned by Cultivation and Children by Education.”

We emphasize to inculcate Social, Sacramental, Traditional and Moral Values among One & All while adopting contemporary and modern pedagogies. As we know that “Money comes and goes; but Morality comes and grows.” P I S is an amalgamation of competent mentors, the art of infrastructure, idyllic setting, foolproof security and ample opportunity for overall development. Children have the right to enjoy their childhood, make mistakes and learn from them. We should have supreme patience by nurturing and dealing with them with proper love and care.

Being the first teacher of the school, I use to groom my entire team under “3Fs” policy i.e. ‘Fearlessness’, ‘Friendliness’ and ‘Fairness’ work culture for everyone. I believe in “Liberty to work, not liberty from work”. We have been focusing to impart ‘Cognitive Knowledge’ because we kindle the passion for learning among our children. We think education is not only learning by rote and repeating it in the examination; our approach is students centered and goes beyond text books, class rooms and boundaries. Our students develop practical skills, enabling them to apply their learning to unfamiliar situations and think critically in different conditions. We prepare them for a lifelong success.

In Swami Vivekanand’s words, Teachers are a nation’s life blood. There is nothing more ennobling and enabling than the Teaching profession.

In my personal and professional experience, I have come across
Knowing is not enough, we must apply;
Being willing is not enough, we must do.
At the last but not the least, my motto is

“Give your best and leave the rest.”
