Founding Director's message
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The year 2023 began with the news of ChatGPT, a US-based open AI chatbot and massive layoffs by leading multinational corporations. Although these two happenings may not be causally related, the spectre of AI is looming large over the workforce. The future of humanity is as much uncertain as it is exciting. The rapid technological advancements in recent decades have left the traditional knowledge and skill-sets obsolete in the modern job market. The reasons for such obsolescence of skill sets lie in the non-commensurate advancement in our educational setups, especially in schools. If we don’t take the requisite steps now, our demographic dividend might turn into a demographic disaster. Our school curricula and pedagogy need massive upheaval in order to keep pace with such rapid advancements in the nature of jobs.
With this daunting scenario in mind, we have laid the foundation of Zia International School (ZIS) in electronic city phase 1 this year. ZIS brings together our decades of corporate experience and our resolute passion for teaching and learning. At ZIS, we endeavor to inculcate analytical thinking and problem-solving skills in our pupils rather than mere rote learning. Our curriculum is designed to instil in them the requisite capabilities to transition through the challenges of modern life. As we embark on this exciting journey, we welcome you to ZIS to be a part of our transformative endeavor. Your support and involvement are essential to the success of our school, and we look forward to working with you to create a brighter future for our students.
Thank you for considering Zia International School as the next step in your child’s educational journey. We cannot wait to see what amazing things they will achieve.
With best regards,
Director, Zia Group
