The founder of Royale Concorde International School, Shri. L. R. Shivarame Gowda, is an outstanding visionary who wears many hats. RCIS 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!"
She is part of the leadership team to provide strategic and fiduciary direction to the school. Her prime focus is on developing, nurturing and supporting student’s growth trajectory as well as reviewing and monitoring the implementation of the next step developmental plan for student’s growth and institution’s academic environment.
Ms. Gowda is also the Chair Person of Royale Kids International Group of Schools. She reiterates the fact that every child is born to excel but the field chosen to excel differs from child to child.
