KIA 2020 to 2021

2020 has been a fascinating start for Kundu International Academy. In the quest for ‘Redefining Education in PNG’ we have clustered our activities through our EXE – XL  model for education into categories that are very important for a students’ holistic development.

Our teachers and staff not only focus on Curriculum and Co-Curriculum type of education, but also extend their initiatives into extra curriculum, value addition and holistic development.

We strongly believe that just studying the course and getting high marks on the transcripts alone will not make a student successful. A student will have to be prepared as a wholly rounded individual so that they are equipped face the challenges the working world is about to throw at them when they go out of the protection of their parents/guardians/sponsors, etc.

Starting in 2020 has given us an exposure that has made us stronger and resilient to the challenges that might come. As we all already know that 2020 was made tougher by COVID 19, and hence made us tougher to keep going. Our students and teachers passed through the challenge fairly easily and without much of difficulty and not compromising on the quality of education that our academy intends to impart.

The setup of the 2020 and the working through along with the trust the parents had on the school management and the team has brought us to a great year-ending and a new beginning to 2021.

This brand new beginning brought with it more trust in the abilities of our teaching community and all our staff. We are very fascinated and thrilled to bring 2021. We know there are promises and hopes this year. We know we can be better, much better than what 2021 can give. We are back with much more power and inspiration. We have more staff now, with more teachers, much more planned activity. We are sure that our students will enjoy every moment they spend in the school.  

Starting from the Cafeteria with Food Express® to the Arts section with NAFA® Group. Kundu International is flying towards a better future. We have hope for each and everyone of our students. We believe in them and their abilities. We know they can make a difference in their own lives and the lives of people around them.

Keep looking at our space, Let us know if you have any bright ideas to help build the future of this great country.

Let us make a difference in Education, Let us be special…

Kundu International Academy

Redefining Education in PNG

Welcome to Kundu International Academy (KIA)

We are a newly established private school which is an initiative of the Big Rooster Group. In 2020, we embarked on our secondary school program which resulted in the birth of KIA, subsequently the enrolment of our pioneer grade 11 students. We offer the PNG National Department of Education Curriculum in line with quality international standard training with a variety of value added programs to provide holistic education to our students in a friendly and conducive environment.

Our vision is to “redefine the concept of Education in PNG”. We aim to ensure that our students are provided with quality learning experiences based on a broad and balanced curriculum that equips them to meet the challenges of an evolving world. We believe that all children are UNIQUE and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow holistically. It is our desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential.

Our value added programs include NTC certified courses in Business, HR and ICT, traditional cooking, martial arts, dance & music, design & fashion, sports, industrial visits, Religious Education and many more. Incentives like free tablets and Wi-Fi are given to enhance our learning experiences. We are located along Baubau Avenue, Boroko and are currently registering grades 7, 9, 11 and 12 for 2021 academic year.

Our talented and qualified staff are innovators, continually developing and expanding their learning for the benefit of students. We constantly review and develop our programs, practices and facilities to equip our students with 21st century skills: critical and creative thinking, effective communication and team work.

So why should you enrol your child with us?

Well here is the main reason why you should enrol with us, our students will be required to go through a rigorous training process called the Exe-XL – “Executive Excellence” model. This model focuses on the 360 Degree development of a student, giving ample opportunities for students to excel in the career of their choice and nurturing talents in that area enabling them to become Young Leaders.

It is a Youth Leadership Platform that is blended into our curriculum. Hence, students are made aware of their strengths and weaknesses but more so on their strengths. All activities of the school that are aimed at student development will be brought under Exe XL umbrella so as to standardize them in all classes with the aim of continuous improvement through competition.

As per this adage, “Competition should be of a level that it hurts. That alone will help produce products of better quality at lower costs”

An effective and efficient leader requires nurturing of talents in all forms. This Pooling of knowledge and applicability is what EXE-XL is aiming at. The talent pools for our students are sourced from these

FIVE Pillars. They are;

  1. Knowledge and Wisdom.
  2. Intelligent and Emotional Quotient.
  3. Sports and Games
  4. Social Responsibility
  5. Ethics and Values

All these pillars have to be achieved in order to make a student fit to face competitions in the future and to achieve excellence.
