Shlok’s mother expressed her pleasure over her son’s achievement by
saying, “The credit for Shlok’s achievement goes to the teachers of
Billabong High International School. Their continuous efforts and
motivation have helped him achieve this feat. Shlok was three-and-a-
half-year-old when his interest in Mapology began to grow. His
knowledge in the subject matter is extensive. There is no country,
place, landscape, mountains, sea, oceans, or river that he cannot
identify on the map.”

us at Billabong High International School. As his mother said, he had
a strong inclination towards Mapology since the beginning. We
realised this and our teachers engaged him in gaining more
proficiency in subject matter. We at Billabong strive to identify and
nurture every child’s talent. Be it academic or non-academic,
Billabong students have always proven their skills in leadership,
collaboration and being a global citizen. Our focus is on a holistic
curriculum that helps the students to identify their true self and pursue
their dreams.
