PIONEERS in new age schooling and learning methodologies, Kangaroo Kids Education Ltd (KKEL) is launching Billabong High International School (BHIS) at Hadapsar in Pune. BHIS will be Pune’s first company-owned, company-run school with a world-class education model and instructional design based on Neuroscience. KKEL has recently completed 25 years in the field of education.
The campus is built on an expansive 2.25 acres with technology-enabled classrooms equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. The school environment and curriculum has been designed to cater to the comprehensive needs of the young inquisitive minds. The key differentiator for BHIS across the country is that it is the most innovative, vibrant, creative and energetic organisation which ensures that every child learns the way they want to learn.
This ensures that the child not only becomes academically smart but also discovers and develops their core potential. BHIS teachers undergo extensive training to ensure that they are well trained to deliver the curriculum. Post training, classroom observations are carried out to ensure that teachers are putting their training into action, detailed feedback is given post observation to ensure that the teaching quality improves continuously and student outcomes are delivered.
BHIS stands for providing a safe and secure environment to each and every student. At BHIS safety goes beyond the physical domain. We work intensively to provide an emotionally and socially safe environment for our students. We work closely with BVQI to ensure schools are certified as per international safety standards.
Starting with a single Kangaroo Kids International Preschool in 1993 and Billabong High International School in 2003, today, KKEL’s revolutionary model of education is imparted in more than 40 cities across India, and in Dubai, Qatar and Maldives.
Speaking on the occasion, Lina Ashar, founder of KKEL opines, “A child who has to study in a restricted environment cannot be faulted for not enjoying learning. We at BHIS take a lot of effort in making sure that our children don’t feel pressurised. With education, there is a lot of art and music. Here in Pune we are very excited to introduce new concepts like Experiential Learning, Flipped Classroom, game-based learning to make education more interesting and meaningful. Here the entire thrust is to ensure that the child is exposed to all-round development, without compromising on discipline. Relying on digital technology to take education forward we are introducing the revolutionary personalized learning app – Skippytech which is scientifically designed keeping preschoolers’ interests and abilities in mind. Children can interact with the app at their own pace without worrying about competitive scores. We are also introducing our digital learning platform Billabox for Grade1-8 students. Billabox provides curated digital videos, assessments and other learning resources which can be used by students at their own pace to supplement in-class learning.”
Seshasai KVS – CEO of KKEL says, “With the progressive rollout of our new brand identities; we are exhilarated to enter Pune. We are proud to announce that the admission for the academic year 2019-2020 is now open. At BHIS, we focus on holistic learning of the child where technology and activities are embedded into the curriculum through our proprietary books. This ensures that the child has fun as well as learns the subject conceptually making him a lifelong learner who is trained to adapt and succeed in life.” Speaking about expansion he further adds “Expansion for us is an extremely crucial aspect of the business since we would like to take our unique method of education to as many children as possible, but at the same time we are a premium international brand and we would like to maintain and build on that exclusivity. KKEL is an extremely well-established brand and enjoys a legacy of 25 years.”
Backed by an excellent team of teachers and administrative staff, Billabong High International School will set new benchmarks for quality education in Pune.
