The founder of Royale Concorde International School, Shri. L. R. Shivarame Gowda, is an outstanding visionary who wears many hats. Royale Concorde International School is his brainchild and his dream for creating a holistic environment for children to be able to ask, learn, imbibe and become builders of 21st century world, to bring about a positive change in society. It is his multifaceted experience in various walks of life that has led to the formation of the school. A school that transcends the boundaries of traditional education that dares to look outside for inspiration and builds healthy attitude and skills for children had been his desire.
His vision has taken the big leap into tomorrow by creating the perfect atmosphere for children to develop their individual potential, in a school where learning is fun.
“I have always believed that children can change the world, given the freedom and the right atmosphere to develop their abilities, their self-esteem and their individual potential. There’s no limit to what they can achieve. You only have to speak to a child for a few minutes to notice that his sense of wonder and his love for learning is untainted by the skeptical attitudes that adults have imbibed over time. There is so much we can learn from children!. Today, creative workshops for managers stress the need to evoke a spirit of play in order to throw up new and innovative ideas. “Tagore wanted to turn work into play, while Gandhi found the spirit of play in work,” says the historian of education, Poromesh Acharya. Why shouldn’t our children grow up in a positive and receptive environment, which encourages them to share their thoughts and ideas? This is such a crucial factor, yet sadly lacking in many schools today. I wanted to set up an educational institution that would change the way children learn today …because empowered children will change the way that the world works tomorrow!”
Mrs. Sudha Shivarame Gowda is a Managing Trustee and the backbone of Royale Concorde Educational Institutions. She is a leading champion of education and life skills impairment in children and believes in the right to complete and enabling education for each child regardless of where they come from. A graduate in arts, having completed her BA, she values education and hard work above all and believe that education and hard work when combined with persistence is the mantra to strive towards a new future.
“Children are the future of the world and so their education forms an integral part of the society. The responsibility vested in the school is immense, and when we manage to bring out the hidden talents of every student we are contributing to the future of the society.”
Mr. L S Chetan Gowda – Managing Trustee, decided to come back to India after pursuing higher education at Brighton University (United Kingdom) to fulfil his dream of being part of an education system that serves to create an environment where young minds can be nurtured.
He is very involved in day to day affairs of the school and plays a crucial role in the administration. The dynamic trustee provides valuable insights to promote a culture of self-discipline and an environment that enables critical thinking. According to Mr. Chetan Gowda, Education means not only an excellent infrastructure, but also the competent, dedicated, motivated staff contributes hard work which means helping others to reach to the top. This will be a continuous and ongoing process at Royale Concorde International School and we are confident of nurturing a generation of young achievers.
