TESTIMONIALS

Beginning January 2018, Great Goals commenced twice-weekly football classes for our Primary School girls .We would like to thank the Great Goals team for their commitment and effort and expertise. The children are enjoying it enormously and we can already see a difference in confidence and focus levels. We hope to continue the partnership for years to come.

A Montessori school wanting to introduce a ‘Sports Program’ for young children,meant that we as educators had to find a partner that has an ethos which is similar to ours……And Great Goals fit that bill perfectly.

They have been running their Great Goals@ Redwood program for two years at two Premises simultaneously. Their classes are  well organised, fast moving and with lots of activities to promote balance and agility. They believe that,focusing on skills will lay the foundation for techniques that will benefit children in the long run.

The coaches are supportive and enthusiastic, raising the bar for naturally talented children as well as gently encouraging those who are not naturally coordinated to achieve small milestones whilst trying to keep up with their peers. A big’ thank you to Great Goals from Redwood Montessori School.

The Great Goals programme for the Elementary children@Redwood Montessori School has
complemented the psychological needs of this age group not just by honing their skills but by
also instilling the need to collaborate and fostering the essence of being a team player. They
have designed their games and activities around this aim to encourage and help children to
come together as a team to achieve a common goal. Children love Great Goals and the
coaches are doing an amazing job training our children. Thank you Great Goals for your sincere
and painstaking effort.

“Great Goals provided our students with high quality instruction, positive interactions with the students, and showed the ability to adapt to the virtual learning environment without skipping a beat! After just 10 lessons of virtual soccer classes, the students improved in agility, ball control, and fitness. By having 2 or 3 instructors in each class, the students really do get the instructions and feedback they need to grow.”

At Eureka Schools, we have been concerned with the learning loss that could occur, both in terms of academic skills as well as extra-curricular activities. We have 2 schools, one in Walodai Village, Kanchipuram District and the other school in Venketrayanpettai Village, Tiruvannamalai District. Most of our students belong to daily wage agricultural families and are first generation English learners….

In this context, when Priya and Sandhya of Great Goals approached us with the offer of conducting online fitness classes for our students, we were only too thrilled. Over the last two months, Eureka School in association with Great Goals, has been conducting virtual fitness sessions for our students. 25 students from Classes 3 to 5, who have internet connectivity for video conferencing have been participating in these sessions. Great Goals Coaches Shankar, Gopi and Naresh have been doing an excellent job training the children in new routines and encouraging them when they do well.

Eureka School teachers and children log in at 6 p.m. sharp, every Tuesday and Saturday, from more than 10 remote villages in and around Vembakkam and Koovathur, all eager for the day’s session. The coaches are in full appreciation of the children’s involvement in adhering to the fitness workouts and their eagerness to learn new exercises & routines. A few children who don’t have access to smartphones have been borrowing phones from others in their village and attending the sessions.

Thanks a lot, Great Goals, Priya Gopalen and Sandhya Rajan for making this happen! This has been very useful to break the boredom and provide children something to look forward to, in the otherwise trying lockdown period.
