Bluebells International School was started as a pre-primary school in Jorbagh by a Hungarian lady and was later shifted to its present location in Kailash. The school is known for following a unique curriculum and experimenting with teaching methods.
The school finds its 2.6 acre campus limiting as far as expansion of infrastructure and sporting facilities are concerned. This is the reason the school falls behind other schools in the categories of sports and infrastructure.
However, the school does try to make up for it by encouraging its students to participate in various extra-curricular activities.
Social clubs are a huge part of co-curricular activities at Bluebells International School.
“We have made life skills and value education an integral part of the curriculum,” said Suman Kumar, principal of the School. “We want our students to be aware and sensitive to issues around the world that’s why we have clubs such as the Africa Club, Che Guevara Club and Iqbal Club (Pakistan).”
The aim of the school is to create global societies and global citizens, she said.
The school also excels in social accountability and has tie-ups with around 13 NGOs and makes each of its students do 150 hours of community service during vacations.
