- The fees cover all expenses, including teaching expenses, for the academic year. It is therefore of utmost importance that all fees be paid promptly.
- Fees must be paid by the 10th of the month in each of the four Quarters i.e. April, July, October and January.
- Should the 10th be a holiday, then payment is to be made on the last working day before the 10th of the relevant month.
- Parents are requested to make all payments by draft or cheques drawn in favour of “G. D. Goenka Global School”, payable in Gurugram.
- Wire transfer is available for parents residing overseas. Further details can be obtained from the Accounts Office. The transaction charges levied by the bank must be paid by the parent.
- There is also a facility of submitting the school fee online.
- Late fee charges are @ INR 50 per day. This shall be levied from the 11th of the month (the date by which school dues are to be paid), till the end of the month. If the dues are not cleared by that date, the name of the student will be struck off the rolls. Re-admission may be allowed at the discretion of the Principal, only after payment of all dues, including a late fee along with 50% of the normal admission fee. This is subject to availability of a seat in the relevant class.
- Until the outstanding fee is received, no academic reports or recommendations to other schools will be issued to the student or parent.
- When in session, students are expected to attend school regularly as per the dates published for each academic year. Parents are discouraged from allowing students to absent themselves from school. If holidays are taken, it is to be clearly understood that the effect on the student’s education is the responsibility of the parent and not that of the school.
- While class or subject teachers may, at their discretion, help students catch up on course work they miss during their absence, this can in no way compensate for formal instruction in the classroom.
- If parents or guardians require students to miss school for a valid reason, the parent or guardian must inform the Principal in writing in advance and get clearance prior to making any travel arrangements.
- When students are absent for medical or other unexpected reasons, a written note from the parent or guardian must reach the Principal on the first day of the student’s return to school. This must be supported by a medical certificate in case of sick leave for more than two days.
- If a child has been suffering from a communicable/contagious disease, he/she will be allowed to attend school only after submission of a medical certificate of fitness from a qualified doctor.
- Unexplained absences will be followed up by the Principal.
- Repeated absence without permission or unexplained absence for more than six consecutive days renders the student liable to have his/her name struck off the rolls. Re-admission may be granted only at the discretion of the Principal.
- For reasons of security, students who arrive late must immediately report to their class Teacher.
- Students who arrive late more than once a week need to obtain appropriate sanction from the Vice-Principal.
- Students who arrive late must ensure that their homework/prep reaches the appropriate subject teachers.
GDGGS DOES NOT APPROVE OF HOMEWORK FOR HOMEWORK’S SAKE.
AS AN EXTENSION AND REINFORCEMENT OF CLASS WORK HOME-WORK IS DESIGNED TO ENCOURAGE:
- Extensive coverage of the curriculum.
- Adequate preparation that makes the time in the classroom more effective.
- Opportunities to develop responsibility and independence.
- Development of organizational and study skills.
- Exploration and identification of useful resources other than those provided by the school.
HOMEWORK MAY BE SET IN A VARIETY OF WAYS:
- As completion of classwork.
- Reading, writing or research related to classwork.
- Practising mathematics problems.
- Re-enforcing grammar and spelling.
Since part of the homework is done in school, it ensures children have time to play and enjoy recreation-time at home.
PARENTS OF DAY-SCHOLARS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ASSIST THEIR CHILDREN IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
- Organise a regular homework time after a child has rested.
- Provide a quiet place, a desk or table for homework.
- Check that homework has been completed properly.
- Help your child with difficult homework(but not do it for her/him).
- Collaborate with teachers through the school almanac, informing them if your child has had difficulty with homework.
HOMEWORK / PREP PER PROGRAMME:
PYP students carry homework only to reinforce concepts taught in class. As Culture of reading is an important part of our school. Please encourage your child to follow the guidelines for reading.
ASSESSMENT & REPORTING
The purpose of assessment is to transmit structured information about the student’s progress to the student, the teacher and the parents.
GDGGS evaluates students’ work in a variety of ways, including continuous assessment and progress in course work.
- Primary School Reports are comment-based, with a detailed Profile at the end of the IB Primary Years Programme in Grade 5.
The GDGGS reporting system is designed to provide this information on a regular and systematic basis. We are also committed to informing parents immediately, if challenges arise.
MEDICAL HISTORY FORMS
- Please fill the Medical History Form carefully for treatment in case of emergency and proper health care of the student.
- We request that students receiving transient or long term medical treatment discuss this with admission officer prior to starting school. Please ensure that appropriate information is documented on the medical form.

Parents picking up students following after-school activities may park in designated parking spaces if space is available. Parking is not permitted in front of the school gate at any time.
PARENT CONSENT FORMS
The Parental Consent Form enables the school to make informed decisions on behalf of the student.
As part of the Parental Consent Form, parents are requested to give permission to their wards to join school-organised trips within and outside Gurugram/Haryana. Since the student’s safety is our foremost concern students will always be chaperoned by members of the teaching staff. However, the school cannot be held responsible for any injury caused due to any accident during school trips, adventure activities, excursions, field visits etc. on or outside the school campus.
The form will be provided by the School, when required.
Students up to Grade 5 are allowed to attend school in home clothes on their birthday, but they must be formally attired.
Permission be granted to any student to leave the school unaccompanied to attend birthday celebrations of their classmates or friend, nor will students be given access to the address and telephone numbers of any student in order to send an invitation.
Permission may be granted by the Principal on the written request of the parent or local guardian of the child concerned.
- Parents/Guardians are required to notify the school well in advance and regarding the withdrawal of a student during the academic session.
- A minimum notice of three months is required. The fees of one term (inclusive of all charges) will be payable in lieu of the notice, in the event of failure to furnish the required notice.
- Security deposit, if any, will be refunded at the time of withdrawal of the child from the school against the security deposit receipt, along with an application on the prescribed form. This will only be done provided all school dues have been paid in full or settled satisfactorily. Refund of the security deposit must be claimed within a year from the date of withdrawal of the child from the school.
