The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
Alvin Toffler

Albert Einstein says, 'Imagination is more important than knowledge'. In the world where our children's imagination is ravaged by aggressive media, mobile phones and computer games, moulding imaginative minds becomes more challenging than ever before. In this context, every school needs to shoulder the huge responsibility of developing imaginative minds. At podar, we happily accept this challenge and create umpteen numbers of opportunities to students to develop imagination and visualization.

Situated in a 360 degree green environment, Podar International School, Solapur strives to offer the best quality education under stress-free environment. 91 years of experience and expertise in the field of education enables Podar to design teaching methodologies to suit every type of learner. We ensure that no child is left behind in the journey towards achieving excellence in learning. Life Skills Training prescribed by WHO (World Health Organization) makes it clear that the needs of modern student do not limit to academic development. The students need to be skilled enough to communicate effectively, think critically and creatively and prioritize tasks. At Podar, the curriculum covers all these essential life skills and through varieties of hands-on training, children get global exposure on all these traits.

A 21st Century student must know how to learn, unlearn and Re-learn. The success of students involves effective communication, comprehension, inquisitiveness and creative thinking; along with these there is a strong need to imbibe basic human values and develop spirit of enquiry. The success of education does not only limit to high scores; true success is in building right attitude towards learning through which students remain life-long learners.

ICT (Information Communication and Technology) has become an integral part of quality education. Effective use of ICT enables educators to involve all students in the process of learning. I am happy to share with you that we have received the 'Best ICT School Award' from Government of India for using technology efficiently in classrooms. We are dedicated to implement latest tools and techniques to deliver quality education. Our mission is to be the first choice school in the city and to continue the legacy of delivering world class education.

With best wishes,

Dr. Ajay Kumar Panda
