Global Indian International School introduced the campus Global Annual Leadership Summit (GALS) 2020 to promote cross-pollination of ideas at the grass-root level. Every year GIIS management across Asia organizes this meet up to work on ideas to improve the current methodology and way of delivering education across the campuses. This annual meet helps the management in selecting some of the best ideas and implement them in one of the campuses to test its practicality and operational actuals. Like every year, this year too the summit focused on taking student-centric education to new heights and deeper understandings.
More than 165 leaders, teachers, and staff members from three different campuses including Hadapsar, Whitefield, and Bannerghatta attended the event to contribute their ideas for the welfare of the students during the virtual conference.
The event commenced with an opening message from Mr. Atul Temurnikar- Chairman and Co-founder of GIIS.
