Our Philosophy

Until we are free to think for ourselves, our dreams are not free to unfold.”

– Nancy Kline

In an era where doing what everyone does and thinking what everyone thinks is rewarded, the ability to think for yourself is a radical act.

Independent thinking requires that you believe your voice deserves to be heard and that you have a unique gift to offer to the world.

Many training institutions offer great learning content, but what sets GKHS apart is our holistic approach to learning. We believe that no matter how excellent your trade skills are, your ability to rise to your highest potential will not be fully unlocked unless you develop life skills with the same level of excellence. Our aim is to equip our students with the life skills that can unleash their independent thinking, so their dreams may unfold.

In all operations, we work to cultivate and grow 21st Century Skills in an ever-changing job market.
