Trustee's Word


Dear Friends,

“The important thing is not that every child should be taught, but that every child should be given the wish to learn.”

The above quote quite rightly sums up our School’s philosophy! We firmly believe that a good School not only prepares a child for formal schooling but also shapes up a winning attitude that is indispensable for success in all aspects of life.

We offer innovative and refreshing new approach to education that combines contemporary learning techniques and principles with a balance of personal development, spiritual growth and physical challenge.

At Billabong, our young minds are exposed to an integrated curriculum that focuses on their linguistic, cognitive, emotional, physical development through innovatively conceived teaching methodology.

We believe that the fundamental purpose of education is to encourage the children to bring about a positive modification in their behaviour as they ascend the ladder of learning and knowledge.

There are some many challenges as we take on the task of providing the very best for our students. Among these issues are maintaining and providing for exceptional staff at all levels of service to our students. We provide current, creative and appropriate programs and facilities that support student achievement and wellbeing.

Our dedicated team of teachers invent and introduce interesting, appealing and effective teaching aids and instructional material resulting in much superior positive confident etiquettes and intelligent children than their counterparts. We as Billabong educators always strive to make our students alive to the needs of the environment, sensitizing them to their responsibility in this regard.

It is our sincere Endeavour to incorporate students from varied social backgrounds, bringing them together in education and strongly encourage our parents to become active in the school community and help us grow our children into valuable and contributing members of our society.

“We are better prepared for life if we learn one new thing each and every day.”

Let us continue to celebrate the years of excellence at Billabong High International School.

  • Best wishes,
  • Mr. Sudhir Goenka

Director Principal's Word


Dear Parents,

Being an Academician for over 40 years and Principal for the past 23 years, I firmly believe that a school is a place where pupils spend more than half their waking moments and it is our job as mentors of these young people to make their moments a joyful one.

At Billabong Thane, while providing a well structured academic programme to our students, it is always our endeavor to provide an atmosphere conducive to their overall growth so as to unleash the hidden potential within each one of them thus creating well-rounded individuals.

I strongly believe in "Music-Logic-Magic" and would be very happy if as parents you can inculcate music as an integral part of your child’s up-bringing. For, when there is music, logic will develop naturally thus creating magic!

Let us teach our children to "Aim for the skies…. and they will get some stars!"

Your child’s journey of development is a strong partnership between all of us at Billabong, Thane and all parents. Let’s make it a memorable one – Building bonds with Billabong.

  • Yours truly,
  • Dr. Ranjini Krishnaswamy
  • Director – Principal
  • Billabong International High School, Thane.


Principal's Word


Dear Billabong Families,

The year 2017-18 is a new beginning for me as it is for all of you. However, in this journey called school, our interests and goals are the same. You may agree with me when I say schooling is the best part of a child’s life. Having said that, the onus is on us, both parents and teachers to give them the best time of their lives. And believe me, your partnership with Billabong is for this very reason.

My team of teachers and I are on a quest every day to give them the best school years. This we do by discussing lessons, brainstorming ideas and attending training sessions to be updated with the latest in pedagogy, thus taking the best into the classrooms. Learners today are an extremely smart lot. Their world expands beyond textbooks and geographical boundaries. Since we are nurturing global citizens, we ought to mould the critical thinkers and problem solvers to take on the challenges ahead. We strive to groom them holistically blending work and play. In each of our students we see a future leader.

To develop leadership qualities in them, making them emotionally and spiritually balanced, we bring to them an array of activities both within and outside campus. Our project linked tours imbibe in them the necessary life skills. We are also collaborating with the Rotary Club of Thane North End with whose support our students have formed the Interact Club. Co curricular activities provide the much needed breathing space and recharge students for better classroom transactions.

Our children are growing up in the times when it is imperative for both parents to work. This at times may pose challenges to parents in terms of planning nutritious meals for their children. Billabong ensures that students have access to wholesome and balanced meals on campus. The cafeteria on campus now prepares and serves food as per the government’s guidelines .

Our social service activities sensitise students towards the plights of the underprivileged fellow beings. We associate with charitable organisations like Help Age and Habitat for Humanity to share our little means towards service to society.

Guest speakers from all walks of life are invited on campus to enlighten students and equip them with much needed exposure into the 21st century global world. Parents may also volunteer and participate in their child’s growth story.

Indeed, walking hand in hand we will be writing the success stories for each of our students.

“For behind the parent stands the school, And behind the teacher, the home.”
