Baala Balaga Srujanasheela Shikshana Trust ( just BAALA BALAGA for our children)
baalabalaga is situated on one side of a valley right adjacent to Karnataka University in Dharwad.
Our primary philosophy is to provide a homelike , child friendly and fear free atmosphere for the children to explore various possibilities and ways of learning; to make learning a natural and living experience for the children; to guide the children to evolve into well rounded, socially responsible individuals with a passion to excel in whatever they choose to do. In short to disprove the old saying — Children the world over walk to school and run back home.
Ours is a totally unaided school with no government grants at all. And we do not collect any compulsory donation at the time of admission.
We strongly believe that children should learn in their mother tongue. Hence ours is a Kannada medium school. And we teach English a language from first standard onward. Eighth standard onward the medium of instruction is English. Cultural and environment related activities are integral to the learning process..
Every child is a special human being with a unique personality we strongly believe to impose an uniform to them is very unscientific and inhuman hence we encourage our children to come to school in simple yet very colorful dresses
Kannada is the medium of instruction upto 7th standard later english is the medium of instruction.we do teach english as a language from 1st standard itself
Yes and we have a very healthy boys:girls ratio of 55:45
Excellent work no more words neededYendamoori Veerendranath
