Beyond Academics

Golden Gate Global School offers its students a wide range of sports facilities. The school recognises the importance of Arts and Sports as they contribute to the holistic development of the child. Students get significant opportunities for personal growth and development. The school offers a wide range of activities both during and after school hours, covering Sports, Music, ICT, Art, Chess, Drama and Dance. It upgrades its facilities and implements changes as and when required.

Information & Communication Technology

The school uses ICT to enhance and support the learning of each child enabling different children to learn in different ways, as knowledge cannot be confined to textbooks. We are part of a world where education goes beyond school books and we leave no stone unturned to educate our students in all areas.

ICT is multisensory. Children can read or listen to a story, they can interact with text to make things happen on screen , thus reinforce learning. ICT provides support for language learning and decision making. Programs that provide opportunities for reviewing vocabulary and spellings in different contexts are used to support learning.

In the Secondary School, students:

Physical Education

Physical activity is essential for a child's all-round development.The school encourages the students to actively take part in all sports activities. Physical education provides unique opportunities for children to move with ease and confidence as they enjoy activities such as running, turning, twisting, chasing, throwing, catching, striking, floating and balancing. They are encouraged to respond to challenges to the mind and body, to participate, compete and co-operate with others. The aim is to develop agility, coordination and confidence among the children through physical activity and encourage a competitive spirit while recognizing the value of cooperation, fair play and team work. Children are also trained in dance, gymnastics and athletics.

Music

Music is an indispensable part of a child-centred curriculum. Musical activity challenges the child to act in unique ways to listen discerningly to her own music and the music of others, to sing, play or read sensitively and accurately and to evaluate critically. We lay a lot of emphasis on valuing a child’s interest in music and strive to ensure that children get ample opportunities to nurture their talent. We at Golden Gate Global School make sure that every child is provided a chance to learn to appreciate a musical instrument, sing in chorus and play instruments under expert supervision.

Dance

Dance is an ideal means of communication to express one self .Our students are made conversant with various Indian and Western dance forms like Indian Classical, Jazz, Hip Hop, Salsa.

Theatre

Theatre is celebrated as a distinguished art form in our school. Our strengths lie in a careful blend of professional academic work and training.

The theatre students are exposed to various forms of expressions like monologue, extempore and role plays. All students are taught the importance of finer aspects and oratory skill:- the nuances, voice modulation, stress and Intonation etc.

Art and Craft

Art, for most children, is a natural form of expression and a source of great pleasure. The child is encouraged to look at and respond to a wide variety of artworks. It is through talking about these artworks that the child develops sensitivity to the visual elements and begins to use them purposefully in her own art-making. Students also learn to appreciate works of art and use artistic language to describe paintings, sculptures and other artefacts. The curriculum provides students with opportunities to work with a variety of materials such as wood, clay and paint. Children develop their creative and imaginative talent through learning skills and techniques and by using diverse materials and tools.
