Whatever you’ve got your sights set on, that’s the beginning.
G.D. Goenka Public School lays a lot of stress on the holistic development of the child and has arranged for excellent sports facilities at school with the required infrastructure. The School has arrangements for all major sports namely, basketball, cricket, football, tennis, swimming, skating, taekwondo, to name a few. All the sports are played and practiced under the specialized supervision of a trained instructor. GDGPS students regularly participate in major competitions and tournaments happening at school, city and state level and have added several feathers to its already well accomplished cap.
We have a professional tennis court, the only undercover court in U.P. We start to train the children with the basic coordination drill, like ball sense ,bounce sense, air sense, roll sense and speed sense and gradually move on to racquet holding ,swings and follow through, then comes rally, after which they are ready to play matches /tournaments.
We have three practice pitches with a proper net for a practice session. We provide proper kits and give them fielding sessions including catch practice and batting session. We organize various fitness drills to make students agile. We have a balanced School Cricket Team to participate in inter-school and state level competitions.
The School has a proper basketball court as well as moveable basket ball ring post. We train our children with basic coordination drills to improve their hands, eyes and leg coordination. Basketball is a game of agility so we especially focus on their fitness by making them do several exercises. We have a separate team for boys and girls to participate in various competitions.
We have four professional tables to play table tennis. As we know that the ball is too small to play, so a bit more focus is required to become a quality player. We work on improving the focus of students by making them do various co-ordination drills indoors. Later we train them to perform at competition level.
The School has a green, smooth, soft and beautiful field; perfect for a seven side game. Football is a game of power, stamina, and skills, with a lot of coordination and teamwork. Initial training of students begin with ball control, then improving their passing skills. Since the game requires good stamina, we focus a lot on their strength, for which they undergo a lot of training sessions based on speed, agility, and flexibility. We have a strong team to play against different schools and participate in various competitions taking place at different levels.
We have a clean and hygienic semi Olympic size swimming pool on our campus. Children are always very excited to go to the pool especially in summers. We provide them a safe and encouraging environment to learn swimming. Both male and female trainers with lifeguards are there for training and supervision. We have two separate changing rooms for boys and girls. We have a team of professionals to keep the pool neat and clean. We have a small splash pool as well for our cute little pre-primary students. We ensure complete supervision for the safety and security of the children. G.D. Goenka Public School helps the children with extra ordinary potential to perform well in various competitions.
We have chess as a sport in our indoor games list along with carom, and soccer table. Chess is a game of complete focus and for that, we need a calm and peaceful environment. Our Indoor Games Arena is just a perfect example for that. Children enjoy this mind game with complete concentration. We have some really good chess players who keep bringing laurels to our School.
Deciding who is the winner and who is the loser is not the ultimate objective. Karate is the form of martial art for the development of character through training. Karate is a sport which can surmount any obstacle, tangible or intangible. GDGPS has a karate-DO (hut) for practice which is amazingly beautiful, surrounded by green creepers. Everybody knows that how important self defense is these days. So keeping that in mind we train them to be more confident in personal safety especially girls. We teach them various techniques to protect themselves in any difficult situation. We also train them to participate in competitions as well.
