The Gera School in Kadamba Plateau aims to combine new technology and academic work to provide world-class education to Goa at affordable prices

After providing world-class residential and commercial spaces in Goa, Gera Developments is all set to give the educational scene in the state an uplift with The Gera School.

The K-12 co-educational international school has opened admissions from nursery to Grade IV. Affiliated to the Cambridge Assessment International Examination (CAIE), a body certified by the University of Cambridge, the school has recently received necessary permissions from the department of Education in Goa and will commence classes from August this year.

Its international curriculum will provide students a blend of academics, arts, music and sports. The school aims to prepare children for a world that is constantly changing, foster a sense of responsibility, critical thinking and reasoning.

The Gera School at Kadamba Plateau will have world-class robust infrastructure and facilities including specially designed smart classrooms dedicated to music and art, science labs, theatre and more. It will also have a spacious library to inculcate independent reading and learning.

VIVA GOA speaks to Gera Developments’ head of CSR Activities Sunaina Gera about her plans and vision for the school.

How did the idea come about to start The Gera School in Goa?

We were actually approached by Goan parents to start a school due to the dwindling standards of schools in the state. Their personal belief was that Goa needed good schools and they believed that, given our background, we would be able to deliver.

My mother-in-law has been running a school in Pune for several years which provides education to students from ages three to 23 with more than 10,000 students.

How would you distinguish Gera from other Cambridge schools in Goa?

The Gera School is not run as a commercial venture. It is a contribution to Goa for children here and for the long-term growth of the place, since enlightened minds and hearts will be the change agents.

As a result, it provides world-class education at an extremely affordable price.
