Moments of fun, laughter, and nostalgia mark Back2Roots 2023

Back2Roots 2023 was a grand success, with more than 200 of our Old Shepherdians attending the event. The three-day event, held from April 28-30 at the school’s Palada Campus, was dedicated to the batches of 1995, 96, 97 and 98. For our dear alumni, it was a splendid opportunity to bond with their childhood friends, share stories of fun and laughter, and revisit the best years of their lives. With great fervour and excitement, our Shepherdians shared with our students their personal experiences at GSIS, how the school played a significant role in their formative years, the friendships they made, the skills they imbibed, and the tremendous contributions and positive impact it has made throughout their lives.

Little innovators with big ideas: GSIS Changemakers Challenge 2023-24

We are glad that our students of grades 3-5 and 6-8 showcased an excellent performance at the Changemaker Challenge 2023-24 organized by the STEAM Department, GSIS. The Changemaker Challenge shone the spotlight on our young innovators and changemakers at GSIS, who displayed creativity, leadership, and critical thinking skills required to identify real-world problems and proposed solutions for it, thereby creating a positive transformation in their communities. The competition involved 3 students in each team. The teams had to select one issue from the nine topics given, relating to the various problems caused by rapid urbanization, such as, dysfunctional infrastructure, long commute times, ineffective healthcare, smog-filled cities, dirty slums, unsafe neighbourhood, and rising living costs and were tasked with finding innovative solutions for the selected problems through the Design Thinking (DT) cycle. The submitted work was graded by program managers from the Creya Team and GSIS.
