Developing a new generation thought leader.

Dear Friends,

It is customary for the incoming Principal to spell out his policies/priorities and let the parents of the students know of all proposed changes. Much of it is based on conjectures, no doubt. In the words of Sir Ken Robinson "Nobody has a clue what the world will look like in five years time. And yet we are meant to be educating the children for it. The unpredictability, therefore, is extraordinary."

Education should have a strong ethical foundation so that our children can walk out into the world with their heads held high and their much cherished ideals are not swept away from under their feet by the undercurrents of the so called modernization. Children should emerge from school as complete individuals, successful in whatever they aspire.

There is immense creativity and talents lying dormant in our children which need to be harnessed and channelized. Time spent in school should be an outlet for all those revolutionary thoughts and ideas of young minds bursting with originality, a glimpse of which is visible in the enthusiasm with which they participate in the many events and activities introduced into our school curriculum. While the stress is on collaborative learning, children are given a strong ethical base so that they grow up to become empathetic, tolerant and responsible citizens of tomorrow. Their aim should not be just to study history but to make history; they should learn science from the angle of inventors.

In today's dynamic world, a holistic grooming is of supreme importance and the school ensures an environment paving way for future leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals who possess skills and aptitudes in an array of functional disciplines. No existing curriculum can vouch for empowering today's generation to be the 'Perfect Beings' of the future and a uniform content forced upon children with the expectation of a uniform outcome is likely to be unimaginative and counter productive.

'Multiple Intelligences' engineered by Howard Gardner, combined with life-skills, all encapsulated in the experience and wisdom derived from the teachings of prophets and seers of the past should form the main pillars of the edifice of education for bringing out the 'True Global Citizen' of the 21st century and we, at Billabong are committed to the realization of that goal. True it is, "Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten".
