Dr. C. Purna Chandra Rao
In the fast-changing world, education can no longer be a mere information-delivery system. Nor can it be one-size-fit-all. Its central purpose must transcend literacy, numeracy and knowledge of facts that help the child prepare for exams and evaluations. Education must prepare the child for the real life beyond classroom, board and books.
“For this, education must provide a wholesome experience for the child catering to his/her social, emotional, mental, physical, and cognitive development needs. This whole-child approach only would help the child not just learn to practice a healthy lifestyle, but forge a more just, more peaceful, and more tolerant value-based society.
We have engrained this as our guiding philosophy. Our history so far would show that we not just believe but have actually internalized this whole-child approach to help the child pedagogically as well as developmentally. We have been quite successful in ensuring that each child is engaged, nurtured, challenged, and supported. We are proud of the fact that we have been able to create and sustain a learning environment that is physically and emotionally safe for the children to encourage them to explore and discover their potential.At this point in time, I wish to acknowledge with pride and gratitude the immense contribution from all our stakeholders especially the parents and the staff who have stood with us in difficult times and have risen above themselves in ensuring the success of our children. We are confident that our children prepared for success in later life would become active leaders and contributors in our nation-building on a fast-changing global stage. American philosopher and thinker John Dewey once declared: ‘Education is not just for life; education is life itself’. I cannot agree more.

We at WGS aim at keeping learners forever young. WGS has kept up with emerging new research-based insights on the teaching-learning methodologies to design our curriculum. We have pioneered the unique ASK curriculum that promotes active learning of children that is primed on competency-based learning.
As you will experience, our ASK curriculum engages the body, mind and soul of every Globalite in every aspect of their learning
With this, we build on the innate nature of curiosity and imagination of the Globalists by giving them age-appropriate projects to work on. We develop within every child the desire to know, the tools to seek, and the ability to find, understand and use information as a means to becoming self-sufficient and responsible.
Beyond just academics, our ASK curriculum instils values that are sine qua non for success in the 21st century. It creates and enhances the abilities of Globalities ability for deep learning by sifting through continuously and rapidly exploding mines of information by imbibing in them the skills of collaboration, critical, analytical thinking and creative thinking abilities, agility and adaptability
Every globalite (the student of WGS) will be a responsible citizen, empathetic human being, responsible inquirer, knowledgeable collaborator, effective communicator and an active learner.
We develop within each student the desire to know, the tools to seek and the ability to find, understand and use information as a means to becoming self-sufficient and responsible,Thus, we ensure that every Globalite will learn to respect nature, be a responsible citizen, empathetic human being, responsible inquirer, knowledgeable collaborator, effective communicator and an active learner. S/he would learn to respect nature, people, history and the world around We create truly Global citizens.
