How Green Campus adds up to the overall physical and mental well-being of students?

Schools serve as a sacred place for learning for millions of children around the globe. Learning gets conducive when a school is away from the hustle and bustle of town and has ample greenery to help students achieve peace of mind—not to forget how students studying in a quaint and green ambience perform better than those who aren’t studying in such ambience.

GIIS SMART Campus at Bannerghatta ticks all the right boxes when it comes to providing a ‘perfect’ setting for students to learn and grow. GIIS Bannerghatta campus is not only green but also is the best place for students to achieve their educational goals while enjoying the process of learning. 

 

Here is what makes GIIS Bannerghatta stand out as a Green Campus:

1. Sprawling Campus: 

When a school is surrounded by abundant flora and fauna, it impacts students’ health positively and sets the ground for a better learning environment. Having trees, water bodies, and sustainable practices inside schools are directly proportional to how a child performs. This campus is both Smart and Green Campus and is spread over 220,000 sq ft, of which only 20 per cent is built while the rest is open space. 

2. Green Facilities:

The school architects have given special attention to indoor and outdoor activity centres that ensure the free movement of students between several facilities. LED lights are used only when natural light dims.

3. Indoor Air Quality:

No child can thrive in inadequate indoor environmental conditions or unsatisfactory air quality. Air pollution has been a threat to human health. GIIS Bannerghatta ensures high indoor air quality, correct temperature, adequate lighting, and proper ventilation. In fact, Gurukul style classes are conducted for students to keep them close to mother nature besides the therapeutic landscapes that encourage physical activity and reduce absenteeism due to ill health.

4. Studios:

GIIS Bannerghatta campus offers IT Labs, Montessori Lab, Art & Craft Studio, Music Studio, Dance Studio, AV studio, Amphitheatre, and Outdoor playfield with artificial turf, to name a few. In addition, the green campus also has a studio for aerobics and yoga, which primarily caters to the physical and emotional well-being of students. This is very important in today’s world, where mental health is a big issue and has affected scores of students across the globe, especially following the coronavirus pandemic.

5. Award-winning pedagogy:

Schools are a place that allows a young mind to experience life and learn its values that they’ll carry with them for a lifetime. One such school is Global Indian International School (GIIS), Bannerghatta. At GIIS, students receive a blend of next-generation and eco-friendly learning. The school has also won a few awards for its green infrastructure, such as the ELETS Award for Innovation in campus infrastructure, the QualTech Award- Nature befriends Global Education and many more.

A report by the World Economic Forum says, “It may be tempting to spend relief funds on the latest tech gadgets, but first, we need to prioritise the most basic need: upgraded physical buildings that provide healthy and safe spaces where children can learn.” 

While schools worldwide are buckling up and doing various things to upgrade their technology, GIIS Smart Campus has done many tangible things to make its campus  ‘green’ and ‘sustainable’. 

To this end, our school is not only among the front runners of smart education but also remains at the top when it comes to providing a healthy, quaint, and sustainable environment to students for their maximum growth.
