“I don’t teach children, but create conditions for them to learn.”
G.D. Goenka Public School is the realization of a dream of a visionary, Mr. Anjani Kumar Goenka, a noted businessman whose experience of almost three decades – real estate, grain and garment exports, travel and tourism and much more, has vested him with a dynamism which is as extraordinary as it is revolutionary. A relentless quest for excellence, an insatiable thirst for knowledge and a limitless craving for the latest… are the hallmarks of Mr. Goenka. All these qualities are reflected in his brain child – the G.D. Goenka Public School in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.
And the proverbial woman behind the successful man is Mrs. Renu Goenka who looks into every detail and provides that touch of the extraordinary which makes the G.D. Goenka Public School the unique institution it is.

Mr. Anjani Kumar Goenka
"Stories have no end; countries have no lines. Every thing you feel you know May be worked upon and bettered."
As children, you envy the world of adults – their freedom, their confidence, their achievements, independence, affluence. That world seems a fascinating contrast to your restricted world of school, academics, discipline and hard work. But, remember, the grass is always greener on the other side. Your parents did not get where they are, overnight. It has been a long journey of commitment, hurdles, setbacks, toil and sacrifice to build the life which you now enjoy.
Life is a journey of learning, from every source and opportunity, every interaction, success, failure, achievement. This path of exploration and discovery, taking small but sure steps towards excellence, is what education is all about. At G. D. Goenka, this year there were many opportunities for you to explore, discover and learn. The Annual Day was a showcase for the immense talent that is inherent in each of you, whether it was acting, dancing, singing, organizing or coordinating . Sportiva fostered in all the young ones, a spirit of team work, discipline and fitness. The excursions were direct sources of knowledge, encouraging you to develop an interest in the exploration of the environment, developing powers of observation, judgement and problem solving abilities, instilling qualities of resourcefulness, initiative and cooperation.
Enjoy every part of this journey that leads to your future. It is the only time you are not burdened by responsibilities. Listen to your parents talk about their childhood and notice how their eyes sparkle. That is the joy of childhood. Make the most of it to enrich yourselves and work steadily to build your future.
