Principal's Message


Welcome to a magnificent world of learning at Podar International School, Mangalore.

The importance of education in the life of an individual cannot be overstated. It shapes individuals in their formative years and instills in them values that would govern all their walks of life. It is said ‘If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees, if you planning for a lifetime, educate people’. Indeed one can say that the quality of education will determine the destiny of the nation.

For me, Education does not mean providing answers. It means equipping the pupil with the means to find the answers for himself/herself and within himself/herself. Education empowers students to discover themselves – who they are as people. Within each student is a doctor, an engineer, a teacher, a social activist, a sports person, an environmentalist, a poet, an author or an economist. We aim to nurture young minds and see them grow into dynamic adults who will be at ease once they leave the protected walls of this school and enter the world which is so different from the textbooks they read.

Podar International School, Mangalore takes pride in its excellent infrastructure which has been suitable planned to accommodate learning and all round development of the child. The school provides a full range of facilities to help the children grow up to their fullest.

I have witnessed in our students an unparalleled knowledge base, a vibrant dynamism, and acute consciousness about the world around them, a focused ambition and a sustained commitment. I am also fortunate to have an experienced and committed team, which has brought the school to its present stature.

At PIS, Mangalore where our commitment to quality is evidence by highly qualified teachers, low ratios and clean, modern, well-equipped facilities. We help children develop qualities that will make them secure and independent as they grow: self confidence, enthusiasm for learning, social skills, wholesome attitudes, self-discipline, and an organized approach to problem solving. In a short period of time, we have earned an enviable reputation for the quality of education provided to our children, of whom we all are very proud.

We are looking forward to work collaboratively with the parents and community for the attainment of Mission, Vision and Values to our students for making them a better citizen of tomorrow.

I assure you that I am always available to the students and their parents for any suggestion or guidance.
