New Delhi, Delhi, India
Remembering the successful educational achievements of The Muthoot Group, one of India's leading business conglomerates, today announced the new state-of-the-art educational institution in Delhi- 'Paul George Global School' (PGGS), ready for the Academic Session 2015.
'Paul George Global School' (PGGS) Set up under the aegis of St. George's Education Society, built in the memory of Late Shri Paul M George, former Executive Director (and son of Shri M.G. George Muthoot, Chairman, The Muthoot Group). The proposed global school is aimed at being unique, inspirational model and one of its kinds in the country.
'Paul George Global School' is being built over a 2.1 acre plot; Located at Alaknanda in South Delhi, by the internationally renowned architects Arcop Associates Private Limited. The PGGS is projected to be built as a centre of academic and extracurricular excellence. The main aim is to build a platform for students for quality education & professional development, to make them lifelong learners, independent thinkers and responsible citizens of the country. The first impression of the school under construction is of it being modern, contemporary and trendy.
PGGS will have world-class infrastructure, fully air conditioned building and a Wi-Fi enabled campus, sporting facilities & also have an attractive sculptural form that will house the auditorium. It will also have a multipurpose facility of an indoor Basketball, Badminton and Table Tennis court and stage to host cultural programs, gatherings and stage performances. A skating rink along with a 'Wimbledon type' tennis court is also being constructed on the roof of the school building & double basements will provide ample car parking space for the entire faculty of the school.
The academic blocks comprising 56 class rooms will be located around a quadrangle with a grand amphitheatre overlooking the playground space giving it a secure and nestled ambience. The outer walls of PGGS will have Air Aerated Concrete Blocks & the inner partitions of the school building would be made up of dry wall partitions, without using the conventional bricks and water. With this they have also worked on saving our natural recourses. The central green play area would have a transparent solar Building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) panel covering, for trapping solar energy for the electrical requirements of the building, which would also provide incidental shelter to the playing area below in adverse weather.
With this, the school will also be equipped with 'Radiant Cooling', also known as Thermally Activated Building Systems (TABS) for an efficient and effective utilization of energy. The systems would have attendant health benefits for the children as compared to regular air conditioning apart from reducing energy consumption by nearly 30% annually. Since only few institutions in India use this technology.
A Rainwater Charging System would also be operational in the school & will also have an eco-friendly Sewage Treatment Plant to reduce the use of water by re-cycling the treated water for flushing and horticulture.
Initially, they are planning to have G+4 floors up to Class XII with a capacity of nearly 2000 students. Each class will have four sections with an ideal lower student teacher ratio. Also they have plans to include the International Baccalaureate curriculum very soon & admissions commence from December 2014 for the academic year 2015.
On this Occasion, Shri M.G. George Muthoot, Chairman, The Muthoot Group expressed few words about the organization that is committed to the betterment of our community and believes that education is a primary concern for our Nation. He also said that this school will be unique not only in terms of exquisite infrastructure but will also provide world class facilities for its students on its campus.
Alexander George Muthoot, Director, Muthoot Group appreciated the exquisite infrastructure & believes that it's important that our class rooms are aesthetic and functionally appealing.
Uniqueness is what PGGS wants to inculcate among the students. Well said Walt Disney 'the more you are like yourself, the less you are like anyone else.'
