G.D. Goenka Public School is the realization of a dream of a visionary, Mr. Anjani Kumar Goenka, a noted businessman whose experience of almost three decades – real estate, grain and garment exports, travel and tourism and much more, has vested him with a dynamism which is as extraordinary as it is revolutionary.
Established in October 1994, to commemorate the memory of the late Smt. Gayatri Devi Goenka, mother of the Chairman, Mr. A. K. Goenka, the G.D. Goenka Public School is an English Medium, Co-educational Senior Secondary School run by the G.R. Goenka Education Society and has classes from Nursery, K.G. to Class XII.

At G. D. Goenka Public School, Sports training is imparted to the students in order to inculcate in them a feeling of sportsman spirit, team spirit, self discipline and a spirit of general well-being.
A competitive spirit coupled with self discipline and sound health, form the motto of our Sports Activities. Inter class, Inter house and Inter school competitions are organized on regular basis to inculcate a healthy competitive spirit. Sports events like athletics, gymnastics, volleyball, basketball, table tennis, taekwondo, gymnasium tactics, cricket and swimming form an integral part of the sports curriculum of the school.
Inter house championships help to generate camaraderie between students, a sense of competitiveness, brotherhood, discipline, positive attitude and very importantly, the fact that losing is as significant as winning.
Inter school events are powerful instruments of exposure for students at individual and team level in different stages.
