INDORE: Global Indian International School was initiated by Global Schools Foundation (GSF) with the aim of providing quality education to the expatriate community in Singapore. At Global Indian International School (GIIS), Mahatma Gandhi Centre for Values and Thoughts (MGCVT) was conceived to give students valuable insights into the experiences and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. GIIS focuses very firmly on character building in their educational curriculum.
Mahatma Gandhi Centre for Values and Thoughts was unveiled at the GIIS Indore on Tuesday, where the centre displays autobiographical literature on Mahatma Gandhi in Hindi and English. It also exhibits publications, journals, periodicals and books on various subjects connected to India's freedom struggle, Ancient Indian Civilization, Indian Philosophy, works of great leaders among others.
The centre was inaugurated by Justice CS Dharmadhikari (vice-president, GSF). Justice C Dharmadhikari serves as the chairman of Gandhi Smarak Nidhi in Delhi. He is an Independence Movement activist, a lawyer, a judge and an author. He was awarded Padma Bhushan in 2004. He was acting chief justice of Bombay High Court.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion, Dharmadhikari,"Five Years in the Life of an Institution is beginning of awareness, which develops the attitude of enquiry and search for the best. The youngest generation in any school is the hope of the world, the seed of a future classless society of all humanity. We do not want only excellence but perfection as our goal. Therefore, our motto is, to look for the best. We should develop a culture of peace, which means the art of living together, as good neighbours and friends. This is the essence of globalization of education."
