A school that promises to fulfill the needs of today’s children! Billabong High International School, Pune, Hadapsar is now open in Pune.
Being an educator and energy healer myself, I personally feel that
- Academic learning is as important as non academic
- EQ is more important than IQ
- In today’s world, degree hardly matters, what matters is the zeal to learn, adapt, grow and innovate because 15 years down the line, these things will actually count
- Memorization is obsolete! Creativity and innovation is needed everywhere
- Neuroscience plays a very important role in a person’s life
- Mindfulness is a must have skill, it should be a way of life
- Every child is unique and academics is not something every child will be interested in
I can only feel elated if a school promises all these things and many more.
