Prabha Manikkam

Ms. Prabha Manikkam – Curriculum & Administration Manager – Contributing to the development and successful implementation of the school’s operational curriculum and quality plans.

  • Creating curriculum action plans that contribute positively to the achievement of the school improvement plan and, where appropriate, actively involves all teachers.
  • Establishing and maintaining high levels of professional conduct and effective liaising with Teachers/Interns to improve quality education and students’ achievements.
  • Ensuring ‘quality of learner’ experiences.

“The curriculum at GIS is diverse, thought-provoking, creative and promotes love for learning. I believe children learn best through practical ‘hands-on’ learning opportunities; This enables them to experience learning in a meaningful way that reflects their interest and needs. 

My role at German International Academy also ensures that the delivery of teaching and learning is of the highest standards and enables to structure the curriculum to broaden our students’ emotional and multicultural awareness, values and reward success and balances the need for hard work with a sense of enjoyments for school life as a whole. 

Personally, I would like to thank the Management for my recent promotion. I will strive to ensure the development and delivery of an outstanding student -teacher experience here at German International Academy.”

Gunaseelan

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!
