K. Nithyananda Reddy, Chairman
Over the past 25 years, having been part of the team that created a highly successful multi-billion global healthcare organisation which provides affordable high quality products to people in over 100 countries, I have come to realize that good education alone without conscience and values could bring much harm to the world.
I believe that education is one of man’s greatest transformative powers that need to be constantly honed and improved.
As I engage upon this new school venture, “The Gaudium – a CBSE & IB World School in Hyderabad”, my broad aim is to redefine formal education and promote international understanding through it. Education has to be made relevant to the global needs of our time and bring tremendous value to society.
I believe that success follows those who follow their heart, however the environment around us isn’t always suited for nurturing our passions, keeping individuals from realizing their true potential. The focus at The Gaudim – a CBSE & IB World School in Hyderabad is to offer 360º development to students, giving them a nurturing environment with sufficient exposure.
No one is more eager and passionate about your child’s education than you as parents. We therefore extend our support to nurture your passion along with helping your child to bloom into a value added member of society.
K. Kirthi Reddy, Founder
It gives me immense pleasure to present The Gaudium – a CBSE & IB World School in Hyderabad to you. At The Gaudium we believe that a child’s growth is measured in smiles and achievement is quantified by contentment. In line with this our endeavor is to nurture a child’s innate happiness through education that creates value and equips students with the wisdom to apply what they have learnt joyfully.
Students of The Gaudium – a CBSE & IB World School in Hyderabad, are encouraged to identify and develop their own means of happiness that they take forward into their lives beyond School. Aiding us in our mission is an invigorating learning environment complemented by the finest of facilities and faculty who ensure that students are provided with the right inputs at every level – academic, non-academic, emotional and physical.
As a result of our holistic approach a child stepping out of our institution will not merely excel in his or her chosen career but will also succeed as a well-balanced and culturally enriched human being with a positive approach to life.
At The Gaudium, we don’t believe in merely educating children, our mission is to sculpt happy minds. Thank you for your interest in The Gaudium.
Prabhakar Reddy – Principal CBSE & CIE
The Gaudium School’s emphasis on having joy while learning is what drew me to the school. During this period a child’s growth graph is meteoric and is most vulnerable to any kinds of input that may be given and the impact is profound. Therefore it is imperative that the right blend of values, ethics and knowledge be imparted through teachers who are highly motivated and committed to this cause.
As Principal of CBSE & CIE School, it is a pleasant challenge to maintain this balance between joy and learning. To be able to share a vision with not just the teachers but even the parents is a journey that can be completed only with the support of the parents. And all of this is to be done while maintaining the impeccable standards of the different boards and curricula. Please join me in this wonderful journey of joy and learning!
Shanmugam Paramasivan – Principal IB
It is said that young children are a reflection of God. It’s a reference to the innocence and worldview that they have. With a mind that is like a blank canvas, they are ready to see a world beyond their family. This is where the right school makes it easy for them to grow. Home is where they are most secure – because of not just the warmth but also the joy that the environment gives. Similarly, The Gaudium too aims to give the same Joy during the process of learning and preparing for the world.
As the Principal of IB school, I would strive, through the collective efforts of our teachers and staff, to make the tiny tots feel that they are in a place which is just like their home – and more. A place where they get to make new friends, see the world and learn the fundamentals of life. I am sure with our values and ethics in place, this task will be easily accomplished. I invite you to give your children a learning environment which is full of joy and the feeling of home.
