Col Sharan Sikenpore (Retd), Founder Chairman
It gives me immense pleasure to write this message as the Founder-Chairman of Global Sainik Academy (GSA), Bidar, which has now stepped into the fourth year of its pursuit to excellence in every sphere of activity.
The Academic Year 2017-18 has been remarkable for us. We have been able to break all records set by other schools in the past in terms of admissions, innovative methods of teaching, visits to Military Establishments like National Defence Academy (NDA), Khadakwasala, College of Military Engineering, Pune, Mechanised Infantry Regimental Centre, Armoured Corps Centre and School, Ahmednagar, Air Force Station, Bidar etc. The District has finally a school now that is committed to focus on overall development of children rather than focusing only on academics.
GSA believes in a balanced integration of physical training, games and sports and life skills with that of academics keeping in view the overall development of our kids. We are committed to lay special emphasis on the learning of kids hailing from rural background in order to transform the entire region into a better place to live in.
Adequate emphasis is laid on Life Skills, Sports, Outdoor Activities, Career Counselling, and Personality Development Programmes, besides various extracurricular activities and facilities like Indoor Shooting Range, Golf Putting and Driving Practice, Skating, Dance Club, Music Club and Dramatics Clubs. Swimming is a mandatory Survival Skill at GSA.
Summer Camp 2018 has been a landmark success with the construction of a new Obstacle Course in the Campus. Dedicated National Skating Coach, Swimming Coach, Volleyball Coach, Boxing Coach were hired. The Summer Camp was a special attraction in the entire region which opened its doors for kids of other schools and places in order to enable more children to avail the facilities.
At GSA, we help children develop the Four Pillars of Learning, which are Knowledge, Skills, Disposition, and Feelings believing that a child’s character cannot take shape without the amalgamation of these four pillars.
We have taken pains in the talent hunt exercise and hired highly qualified, experienced and dedicated teachers in order to achieve academic excellence. Our teachers are motivated and understand their responsibilities well to do full justice with their role.
GSA is different from other schools in many ways. Discipline is the bedrock of GSA with military ethos and culture in place to have semblance of a Sainik School. By virtue of being managed by extremely dedicated team with rich experience in administration and management, the school distinguishes itself from other schools in many respects.
I am extremely grateful to the parents for their constant support and the trust reposed in GSA. It shall remain our commitment to leave no stone unturned to live up to the expectations of parents and provide a bright future to the kids.
We wish your children a very happy and fulfilling future at GSA.
