A BLAZING TRENDSETTER: ACHIEVERS ACADEMY’S SPECIAL NEEDS UNIT LAUNCH

52Saturday the 15TH

the annals of the tutoring industry, an industry

generally perceived as commercialising education.

Launched on the occasion of Achievers Academy’s first

Open Day, their Special Needs Unit – Abilities

Empowered – a Not for Profit Initiative is indeed a

trailblazer. ‘It is the culmination of a long cherished

dream and we are excited at the opportunity of

reaching out and helping the community in our own

small way’, said Founder and Educationist, Prof K Sen

(Kajol) – whose sheer passion, drive and commitment

to this cause were evident.

Achievers Academy is a boutique tutoring institute

that strongly advocates and uses an Interactive

Application Based Teaching Model to foster students’

of March 2014 heralded a new era in

Critical thinking, Understanding and Analysis, as opposed to mere rote memorisation and cramming.

The Mayor of Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Bryne and Mr Mohan Dhall, the CEO of the Australian Tutoring

Association were the guests of honour. The Press was represented by two of Sydney’s premier News

Publications: Mr Vivek Trivedi (Indian Link) and Mr Rohit Revo (Indian Herald) attended the event.

Mr. Mohan Dhall inspired everyone with his talk, outlining the difference between ‘what you achieve

as opposed to what you are’ and the need to find yourself.

The Not for Profit Initiative, Abilities Empowered is envisaged to be a One-Stop Place for Special

Needs students and as Prof K Sen (Kajol) highlighted, it would be possible only through close and

active engagement and partnership with schools, health practitioners and special needs experts.
