The Pole Star of Divine Sky
On 28th October ’72 a humble soul was born to proud parents in the village of Lanva in N. Gujarat. He was brought up with love, warmth and affection by Mrs. and Mr. Karashanbhai Desai who believed in ‘simple living and high thinking’. The child GHEMAR KARASHANBHAI DESAI, now the Principal of the school grew up to be disciplined and mature under the able guidance and support of his strict yet loving parents.
He completed his education from North Gujarat University with an M.Sc. in Mathematics and a B.Ed. Right since childhood he had a penchant and passion for Mathematics, which was proved in Std. XII when he topped the school in the subject in the Board Exams in 1990 and to this day his name finds a place in the school’s Roll of Honour. He started his teaching career with K. V. Dantiwada to be followed by K. V. Vadsar as a PGT Mathematics and soon joined DIVINE CHILD SCHOOL on 16th September ’99. Since then he has been tirelessly guiding students for stellar performances and was often responsible for ringing in stupendous results in Mathematics both at the school and Board Level. He took over as Principal of the school in October 2018 and to say that it was a meteoric rise would not be out of place. As soon as he took over as principal, he took it upon himself to carry forward the baton handed over to him with all diligence and sincerity.
During his tenure as a teacher, he had got offers to join Govt. schools which he refused as he had passion and love to work with the school. He often appreciates the support and motivation of his colleagues which has taught him several lessons in his life. He always finds it a challenge to bring up academically weaker children to the mainstream of education and has got success to a large extent. His tenure in this school as a teacher has helped him to nourish leadership skills and have an in-depth knowledge of child psychology. He has visited NASA as well as Finland as part of Curriculum Development Programme. In his short stint as a principal in Divine Child School he has built up a strong rapport and understanding with parents. He is a thorough gentleman with sterling qualities like approachability, accessibility with democratic ideals. Children nourished and guided by him find themselves doing very well in their lives and are very blessed. He is the head of the School Lighthouse Team and ably guides the members each day to touch the new horizon of success.
