We aim to provide the best and most stimulating learning environment possible for our children so that their parents may have complete peace of mind. We place considerable emphasis on the quality of teaching and learning by the use of highly innovative teaching and knowledge delivery methods. We recognise that to reach the goal of developing leaders and life-long learners, we need a strong and effective partnership with parents. We recognise that education is an ongoing and shared responsibility between home and school. We encourage parents to be partners in this exciting journey with their children. We follow an open door policy to keep parents informed of developments in the school so that they are able to actively support their children.
Billabong High International Group of Schools is ranked among the top 10 international schools in India and Kangaroo Kids is ranked the no. 1 pre-school in the country.
We, at Billabong, Thane, believe that all students have tremendous innate talent and this should be brought forth in an inclusive manner. In keeping with this philosophy, we admit students with a wide array of challenges – cerebral palsy, autism, visual impairment et al. Shadow teachers are allowed to accompany children to enable seamless integration in the classroom.
Numbers matter. Hence we have restricted the students strength in each class to 25 on the average. Also, the teacher-student ratio is 1: 18. Thus, each student is given personal attention. In the pre-primary section, there are two teachers in each class. At Billabong, Thane, each student is a rough diamond who can and will be polished to perfection.
Every member of the faculty is qualified to teach the subject they teach. As a part of our `learning for life’ philosophy, we enhance their capabilities through a continuous a skill up-gradation programme. We depute our teachers to workshops and seminars in other institutions to give them wider exposure. Also, some of our teachers are resource people for the board-level apart from being examiners.
This is a network of SMEs as well as Educomp system for communicating with parents and all stakeholders. This is supplemented with circulars etc in hard copy. However, by this year-end, we hope to have paperless communication.
