At our GIA, we lessen usage of technologies to unleash the talent and intelligence of each child and help them to grow. We also educate our kids on Autism from Grade 1-12 and they play an important role in special needs children’s mental development.
Education is not only about lessons, books, skills, etc. Education also involves compassion, social competencies and values. As a first Vegan school in India we also involve animals in our classroom environment for teaching and learning to understand them better.
Being the Director and Head of Educational Department I am proud to be part of German International Academy.

Mr. Gunaseelan – Head Chef
Having held progressive positions in hotels across the country, our chef’s love for cooking is fascinating to say the least.
Thanks to our Chef, the food is exciting and different every time and the same boring ingredients may just be an excuse for another new mouth watering and challenging dish!
The concept of Veganism with no additives, chemicals and artificial color, less use of sugar and salt and a fresh nutritious meal every serving is the dietary guideline of Supreme International Education, practiced in GIA. This whole idea has rekindled his culinary passion and he has channelized the same into making food a joyful experience for our children. The challenge is to make healthy nutritious food appealing to our children keeping in mind their natural preferences for food. This requires a smooth integration of creativity, culinary skills and knowledge of each child’s personal tastes
Our Chef fully understands the food philosophy of GIA and this encourages healthy eating habits right from the toddler level, which eventually has a huge impact on the child’s lifelong relationship with food also gives them one of the best opportunities to grow into confident adults.
His Journey with the creation of food goes hand in hand with German International Academy’s transition to a vegan school and what an incredible journey it has been!
