Ms. Shibanti Bhowmik
Academic Advisor
A Chinese proverb that has always impressed and motivated me goes like this - ‘Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to drop back’. Learning is a lifelong journey. So, what makes this learning? Is it what we learn from books or what our teachers have taught us in the class? When we sit down to think deeply, we realize that learning goes much beyond the four walls of the classrooms. We learn from experiences and observations, from debates and discussions, from our day-to-day activities and the list goes on. Learning cannot be accomplished accidently but it must be sought for with love, zeal, and dedication. It is a wonderful experience. As educators we consistently try to thread our love, dedication, and zeal to weave a strong personality, values, and skills in our learners. Our curriculum at Billabong is based on Howard Gardener’s Multiple Intelligence Theory, wherein all students learn according to their own ability. We at Billabong, Kelambakkam, ensure that our leaners get opportunity to explore their talents and skills and grow up as an independent and confident learner to create and preserve a ‘new tomorrow’. Let us join our hands as parents and teachers to give to our leaners the chance to venture and create for themselves their own wings- the wings of hope, values, wisdom, and knowledge that would encourage them to share and design their own niche in future. Let us not look down at their failures as a mistake, but inspire them to learn from it and take the road of making a successful ‘new tomorrow’.
