The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.


Aditi-Deshmukh-01Dear Parents and Children,

I extend a very warm welcome to you. We started our journey in pursuit of excellence in education in 2009. It has been a wonderful experience that is cherished by all associated with Manjara Charitable Trust.

Shaping young minds is a great responsibility. Goldcrest International was founded with the vision of creating an institution which provides an education that strengthens the roots of the students while instilling in them an understanding and appreciation of cultures across the world. Our focus is to develop the students into becoming responsible global citizens, while retaining the Indian ethos.

Taking inspiration from Rabindranath Tagore's philosophy of education, we have created an atmosphere in our schools where attention to the non-academic aspects of a student's development is given as much importance as the academic subjects. We aim at an educational system that seeks the overall development of the personality. We believe that education does not just transform the lives and futures of individual children, it transforms entire nations. To further our efforts in this endeavour, we have introduced the Cambridge (Sec 1 and IGCSE) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

The five essential elements of the IBDP – concepts, knowledge, skills, attitudes, action – are incorporated into our curriculum framework. This, along with our innovative teaching methodologies, encourages students to explore ideas and issues that have local and global significance; thus enabling them to develop a value system that encourages setting goals to realize their own unique potential.

While the students are preparing for the competitive global arena they are also taught the role and importance of community. Few countries in the world have such an ancient and diverse culture as India's. Its physical, religious and racial variety is as immense as its linguistic diversity. It is the appreciation and understanding of this heritage that will prepare our students to accept and adapt international cultures and give them a competitive edge in the global arena.

In the words of Tagore, “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.” We believe that we will achieve our goals by working with students, parents and the community.
