When going gets tough, the tough get going.”
In this age of stiff competition and advanced technology, it is important to make our children future ready and equip them with values of head and heart. The school aims to make the young ones academically sound, physically robust, morally upright and full of confidence to shape tomorrow’s citizens by inculcating in them 21st-century skills.
G.D. Salwan Public School gives a strong and balanced impetus to academic rigour and co- curricular achievements. It has been our constant endeavour to provide a platform to students to voice their opinion and also exhibit and appreciate innate talent. We wish to imbue in each child a deep sense of being valued and loved.
Success is marked by growth. The school’s value system and board results are a testimony of our success in guiding them to do their best and reach higher goals. The success of our students is our success too and we take equal pride in it.

“One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation. – Arthur Ashe
The youth of today are a fine blend of qualities of the head and heart. They are individuals with feelings and emotions of self-respect, sensitivity, responsibility and compassion. We need to recognise, appreciate and applaud these traits to prepare them for the world of tomorrow. The true preparation is for the future which lies beyond the four walls of school and the class room and for what one does with the learning when one enters the life ahead.
The real learning comes in the form of nurturing the roots of responsibility and providing wings of independence. Thinking critically and acting responsibly is what we encourage in our students, thereby making them good, honest and trustworthy citizens. We firmly believe that each child is unique and has hidden potential, hence, we make every effort to inculcate qualities of self-reliance and self-belief to help them excel in every sphere of learning and growth. Thereby our vision of inculcating ethical values and global understanding and providing service to humanity is achieved.

Not so very long ago, we cheered the commencement of this millennium with great enthusiasm and a promise of change for the greatest good of mankind. As we hurtle through the second decade of this century, we must take cognizance of the various shifts that are taking place in all spheres of work, especially in education.
We must harness technology to deliver quality education. It will assist in collaborative learning and meaningful engagement with the students. Knowledge thus gained will be systematically synthesised and skills development will become the focal point of education for the 21st century.
There are several shifts that are taking place in learning today. These include shift in confidence-building exercises for students, in leadership roles and our valued relationships. What is happening in classrooms and how classrooms can change is constantly being discussed by educationists all over the world. The answer lies in how well we adapt with the changing times as well as demands of the industry.
Positive relationships help children nurture reliable associations. Students grow best when they are trained to set goals for themselves, persevere to reach them and reflect on envisioning more challenging goals, armed with courage, integrity and abundance of positivity.
Strong family ties and respect for the elders in the family concretise the foundation of a child’s life. We Indians cherish our values, culture and traditions deeply and these core virtues are the secrets of our success in life.
I believe that at the heart of every child- centric approach to teaching and learning lies the happiness quotient. It has an immeasurable impact on our attitude and entire personality. Indeed, the ripples caused by a happy environment, boost the overall development of a child as a beautiful human being.
I wish the students of Gyan Devi Salwan Public School success in all their endeavours. I hope that they will find the tranquillity of the mind, and mould themselves into young persons of great character.
