Academics

Curriculum : To make our children future ready, where the concept of success has changed, different skills are necessary to be successful in the 21st century. Thus with a holistic curriculum our children will be equipped to deal with challenging situations of a demanding future.

Learning Methodology : KKEL Methodology is based on latest brain research and pedagogy.

It has been designed keeping in mind scientific brain based principles on how the brain best learns. The first and most important scientific principle is based on ‘fun’ or high engagement and novelty. Scientists know that the first five years of life are very important for building a child’s brain.

Everything your child experiences will help to ‘wire’ his/her brain  - for thinking , feeling, moving and learning. These are the years when we can make a big difference in your child’s development and future. When the brain is engaged and excited (having fun), it releases a chemical called dopamine. When dopamine levels are high in the brain we are more likely to remember and recall what is learned (long term memory); so making learning novel, exciting and rewarding is based on neuroscience. Dopamine release is also addictive and that is another good reason as we want our children to be addicted and learning.

Teaching Methodology : The truly novel paradigm that forms the basis of Billabong High International School’s philosophy is the unique LRQ model.

The LRQ model is based on three major underpinnings :

Learner children at the centre of the teaching –learning process is a vital underpinning of curriculum mapping. All programs and policies at Billabong High International School are created keeping students interest in mind to maximize the potential of each child.

Research – Based Curriculum : Instructional design and subject matter experts in the field of Neuroscience maintain that as we enter the 21st century, our learning pattern needs to be dynamic and evolving ,incorporating the needs of the society and the learner.

From toddler’s club to grade 12, Kangaroo Kids Preschools and Billabong High International School nurture your child on a journey of joyful education that is as relevant as it is engaging . So your child develops a lifelong love for learning.

Kangaroo Kids Preschools & Toddlers Club

The most critical years of learning for your child are from birth to age of five, when brain concentration develops at the fastest rate. During the preschool years, a child’s potential is converted into actual intelligence. Therefore a positive preschool experience deeply enhances his/her future learning and development. Our curriculum not only addresses language , math and science , but also develops other important skills that become the building blocks of future learning.

Billabong High International School

Billabong High was born in response to the demands of parents, to take their children onward all through their schooling years with the same philosophy of learning that was imparted in   Kangaroo Kids Preschools. Billabong High is therefore a natural and seamless progression into higher schooling and is based on the same philosophy and pedagogy (research –driven ,brain compatible education).

Focus in Primary School Years :

We fortify the foundations in the primary years, enabling children to face any examination confidently and come out with flying colours. The curriculum is multi – dimensional in its approach . We organize instructions around themes with broad possibilities , with natural connections to other generative topics.

Focus in Middle School and High School years

Through the Middle School and the High School years, our goal is to equip children with the necessary skills and knowledge that are a requisite for facing the challenges posed by the 21st century. Our aim is to create a purpose for learning , to encourage chidren to be thinkers, innovators and problem solvers, to orchestrate experiences that will result in a natural and integrated development of knowledge , skills and thinking.

The Life Skills program : Besides excelling in academics, enabling children to excel in life is an integral part of our curriculum. This is only possible with a positive mindset, one that encompasses social, emotional and physical well-being.

We firmly believe in the adage that, “Values are caught and not taught “. Our comprehensive Life Skills program ensures that students are given ample opportunities to reflect on their thoughts, feelings and actions. Respect for diverse cultures, working in teams and collaborating with others for a common good are some of the ideas that are shared with the students.
