THe interview question - colours identification, vegitables & fruits identification, rymes and kids name. Sometime only kid and if kid is cryinbg then accom by parent.

Hi Anzy,

Thanks for sharing the information. We have the interview on Dec 04. Is the Gurukul fullfledged school? I understand, they've just started the school. It would great if you can share you insight on the school.

Thanks Again,

Shiva

Anzy,

Dont think NHG can afford increasing fees next year beyond the usual 10% range...

There are lot of schools in that area with whom they have to compete. Also they will have to keep a good standard if they dont want people moving out in 1-2yrs....

Also one thing I liked about them is there in no Lock-In amount like lot of other schools.... Even very average schools nr sarjapura are charging arround 60k-1lakh deposit/donation which locks the parents in for a few years.... and then thye cant change the school if they want to the next year or so....

So I guess they would have given a thot to all of this too, and it might turn out to be a pretty decent one...

If you see the Fees for NHPS as compared to last year its increased by just 4K despite the hugh demand.

Other schools have incresed fees by more than 40% .....

So I think the group NHEI is pretty balanced on this..... Next year admission might get difficult for NHG but fees wudnt rise too much....

I paid the fee for NHG today. I agree with ML on the subject. I also also told my Jaya Madam that, fee will not be increased until 1st standard, which is not the case of NHPS.

Today, i again visited the new campus and work is going on full swing. 1st floor is strucutre is ready but difficult to say that it will be completed by June 2010.

Campus is much bigger than NHPS but of course not in 150 acres as told by school. Hope they give what they promise interms of infra.

Tution Fee for NHPS is 37880 and Gurukul is 48880. One time fee fot NHPS is 50K & 40 for gurukul.

If we all the paretns join together and create a forum where our concern can be store together will be good. Pls disccuss.

Anzy,

I was already thinking on that and had created a yahoogroup for it..... NHG_Parents@yahoogroups.com.

Need to ask all parents taking admission to Gurukul to join the group....

hi anzy,

my son going to attend the interview for nursery on 25th nov.i wants to get the admission in nhps.is it possible.im too much of worried about that.

 

BhuChandhu 2009-11-22 18:29:29

 

 Hi Jeyanthi,

my son had attented the interview for nursery on 21st nov for NHPS.it went on well and after the interview we met the principal and as everyone said she told us about  NHG. 

She said we ll get a call between 3:30 to 5:30 pm on 24th if selected. We are looking for admissions only in NHPS so jus waiting for the results else have to see other options.

 

ML 2009-11-23 07:54:00

 

Jeyanthi,

Not sure on what grounds they are selecting kids for NHPS. But I did see admissions happenig for NHPS as well and a couple of my acquaintances got the seat at NHPS. One thing I found common was all of those kids had an older sibbling studying at NHPS and seems the kid had been able to answer most of the questions at the interview well.

I was alos told of one more thing, the kid should be able to go for the interview without the parent with him/her. Coz a couple of kids who had to be accompanied by mother and who clinged to the parents during the interaction were given a lesser preference.

Its a pain to see that such small kids have to go thru pressures of interview/selection and all but as Parents we are at a receiving end due to want of Good schools.....

Wish you the very best for you kids interview....

what is the age of children who are attending interview for Nursery now?

 

ML 2009-11-23 10:02:15

 

I guess its from 2.6 to 3.8.....

Most kids selected are a little older ones... arround 2.10-3.6

Is New Horizon Gurukul, which is under construction at Marathahalli a brand new school starting in academic year 2010-11 or is it a already functioning under same name somewhere else and moving here?

I'm asking for this as I saw some news items related to this in year 2004 & 2005; link for which is given below:

The Hindu
http://www.hindu.com/yw/2004/08/21/stories/2004082101080300.htm

Times of India
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/992134.cms

Can someone clarify on this?

Thanks,
K

 Can parents of Gurukul kids tell me how many sections they are planning to put up for LKG? I have interview on Dec21, really looking forward to Gurukul as we stay in Bellandur and I believe its somewhat similar to Prakriya..Lets see... Since we have applied very late wondering if we still have a chance.

What do you guys think? Do they give pref to kids from Outer Ring Road? 

 

 Former member 2009-11-24 00:14:12

 

When I checked with NHI at their Engg College campus, they told me that there will be four section of 30 kids each for LKG.

 

 

 

ML 2009-11-24 07:29:44

 

Hiradhu,

Hope for the best. They do prefer kids within close distance of the school Only prob is ur interview date is very much towards the end.

But I think they would increase the sections if the demand is more. This is what the principal had told us when we had met.

Just prepare your kid well for the interview....Maybe they would increase the sections....

Congrats to all those who got admission in NHG / NHPS and best wishes to those who are waiting for the results.

ML 2009-11-24 11:07:20

 Thanks all for the info shared. Can u pls help me with these Qs. Reason for these strange Qs, we didnt get thro' in one the schools and wondering if these situations/reasoning caused it.. To be on a safer side :)

1. How long is the interview? Will the interview duration indicate the result in anyway?!! 

Do they Montessori type of Qs - like using Mont materials or just show and tell kinda stuff?

2. Do you get any clue after the interview if the kid is thro' or not?!! 

3. Am not sure if my Daughter will attend the interview w/o my presence, she may or may not. Whats the chance?

4. Are they really particular about working mom and the parents working hours and designations? 

5. After the assessment within how many days they tell the result?

Any clues would be really helpful.

 

ML 2009-11-24 11:43:07

 

1. How long is the interview? Will the interview duration indicate the result in anyway?!! 

Not more tahn 15 mins.... Yes if the kid is figgety they send him back sooner.....

Do they Montessori type of Qs - like using Mont materials or just show and tell kinda stuff?

No Idea. My dot was shown some specimen for fruits and pictures for animals.

For colors they distributed balloons and asked color of those. Kids were quite amused with them especially my dot and tehn answered what teacher asked.

2. Do you get any clue after the interview if the kid is thro' or not?!! 

We got an inkling when we spoke to the princi... And we had chosen NHG specifically...

3. Am not sure if my Daughter will attend the interview w/o my presence, she may or may not. Whats the chance?

Teachers handle it well... giving choco and ballons and toys to paly... plus other kids r there so generally kids do go to them......

4. Are they really particular about working mom and the parents working hours and designations? 

No. Child response more imp....

5. After the assessment within how many days they tell the result?

4-5 days max.

  I attended the interview on 20th Nov. My first son is in NHPS UKG.  My son answered quite well. I said i dont prefer New Horizon Gurukul. When i called on Monday, they said he is not selected. They doesn't consider sliblings also?  Is anyone in the same boat? Please through some light on this.
