Paras Group to venture into Education

With strong brand presence in Dairy products, Healthcare and Real Estate, the Paras Group is now set to enter the Education sector with the launch of 'The Paras World School India' (TPWSI). The first school is coming up at Sector 50 in Gurgaon. The philosophy of the school will be  based on a Harvard project, 'Making Learning Visible' -  conducted by Mara Krechevsky and Howard Gardner at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. With a core aim of holistic development, the curriculum (called Spectrum Seed) will seek to develop and sharpen the children’s interests, hobbies, abilities, skills and talents. Specifically, the school will have a co-curricular program called 'Blossom 360' – which, apart from offering various physical and cultural activities, will also feature an Environment Club and a Robotics Club. In order to observe and evaluate the progress of each child, each class will have a maximum of 25 students and the teacher to child ratio will be 1:12. A 'Global Connect' programme will expose the students to a global milieu through collaboration with schools in other parts of the world. The air-conditioned classrooms will be equipped with digital facilities to impart interactive and state-of-the-art education. All parents will be connected to an Education App, which will ensure an interactive assessment and evaluation system of the students in the ‘presence’ of the parents.

Ms. Sharmistha Gupta, the Principal, has a rich experience of over 20 years in the Education domain, across leading schools in India and abroad. Explaining the guiding principle of the school, Ms. Gupta says, "We believe India's new generation need grooming, both at school and at home, in moral values, civic sense and tolerance. The Paras World School India will groom its student community to be highly aware, articulate, mature and balanced in their judgment, as also endowed with sense and sensibility." Talking about the foray into the Education sector, Ms Priyanka Nagar, Vice Chairman, says, "Our country is all set to enter the next phase of development, leading to its establishment as a global power. To help assert our position in the global order, we will need confident and ‘globalised’ Indians, and that is where an appropriate school education is going to be crucial. TPWSI is not just a venture for us; it is integral to our participation in that global march of India." 

Seasonal Fiesta

There were fifty stalls of eateries, gifts, jewellery, henna and games; there were many rides, a dance troupe from Rajasthan and a DJ. GPS had also organised Drawing and Dance Competitions, a Poem Recitation, a Flower Show…and a Lucky Draw. 


Jesus Christ is the 
Message of Christmas
If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator. If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist. If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist. If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer. But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Saviour’: Max Lucado. 
Dr. A. F. Pinto, Chairman, Ryan International Group of Institutions wishes you a truly blessed and joyful Christmas and a prosperous New Year 2015.

Fresh Painters
Swapna’s Art Studio held the first exhibition, Fresh Paint, of seventeen of its talented young artists (aged between 11 and 17 years). The artists, who had been in residence at the Studio for a year, displayed nearly a hundred of their artworks and photographs. The themes were diverse - wildlife, fashion, architecture, and even a rock star. A highlight was the Village Art installation. In September the Studio had organised a trip for the students and their teacher to Khor, a village in Haryana. The Village Art installation was a 240 square feet space that was expertly painted to look like a village wall, with lifesize prints of the photographs of village women and children pasted on it. The Studio had also invited guests from the village, who had set up ‘chulhas’ next to the wall installation and were serving fresh bajra rotis, chai and chaach to the guests. The young artists who participated in ‘Fresh Paint’ were: Abhinita Singh, Aditya Relan, Anushka Trakroo, Gitansh Malhotra, Jhanvi Ohri, Manya Awal, Nishtaa Modi, Pavni Bajaj, Rhea Puri, Rhea Ratna, Rishabh Kalra, Riya Parekh, Sanat Datta, Sanya Arora, Sia Bishnoi, Siya Tyagi and Zoeanna Upadhyay; and their teacher, Swapna Maini.
