Goenka Group, New Delhi to provide the experience of a Life School to learners across cultures and political borders. Set against the backdrop of the challenging macro as well as micro approaches to the twenty-first century, the institution envisages curricular infusion covering sundry disciplines for tomorrow’s flag bearers to conceive innovations that are satisfactorily appraisable by robust moral compasses, thereby giving life to creatively collaborative individual and community well being.

An alumnus of Notre Dame Academy, Ms Jyotsna Ranjan, the visionary Head of School carries the catholic spirit to educate children as holistically enriched individuals with the precise blend of knowledge, values, and skills for global citizenry. With experience reaped for more than 22 years in pedagogic planning and implementation, she contributes qualitatively and productively in a headship role at G. D. Goenka Public School, Gorakhpur. A consummate multi-tasker, she has created a productive school culture by modifying the organogram and incorporating systemic policy reforms for building collaborative processes. She fervently endorses the wisdom that a kaizen trinity of learners, educators and carers make the refulgent setting for the blossoming and success of any institution. The knowledge of various foreign languages like German, French and Spanish extends her the merit of appreciating perspectives and thereby add to the equity of schooling experiences for student learners. Augmenting the realisation of the institution’s vision is always of prime concern to her. She loves to lead by example. The institution basks in glory as a natural sequel to her devotion and dedication.
