    Our visit to the GSIS has been memorable in so many ways. Dr. Thomas and his gracious wife Elsamma, personify the best in human kindness, warmth, dignity and grace. Their hospitality has made us feel truly at home. The GSIS is a model institution, and the care and dedication with which it has been built, brick by brick , over the years, shines through every arch and alcove. The students are so energetic and filled with good cheer. The Founder’s day celebrations were a feast for the eyes and ears.  GSIS sets a very high bar for other schools to emulate. May you continue to inspire others to learn from the power of your example. Your vision and commitment make us proud.
