The Centre was established with a commitment to instill strong virtues and peaceful living into students through the experiences and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Rajiv Bansal, Director – Operations, GIIS India said, “The Global Indian Mahatma Gandhi Centre for Universal Values (MGCUV) is significant in the current climate across the world. Through specific initiatives built into our curriculum, we are able to embrace projects and educational practices that encourage students to live in the spirit of understanding, peace and racial harmony. Our goal is to create well-balanced global citizens who are ambassadors of peace throughout the globe.”
MGCUV is one of the GEM of the NINE GEMS Teaching Methodology of GIIS. As Mahatma Gandhi followed the path of non-violence, truth, love and compassion, it is GIIS’ aim to inculcate these values amongst students from early childhood.
Also present at the event, Principal, Ms. Savinder Kaur Rooprai said “Values of Mahatma Gandhi's pedagogy are important ingredients for the growth of any child. A growing mind needs to be seeded with thoughts that are positive and constructive and have an impact on the individual’s life and that of the society. At GIIS, we aim to build an all-rounded individual, capable to be the leader of tomorrow and that can be achieved successfully with the new Mahatma Gandhi Centre of Universal Values.”
