Hi Kav,

 

       I too will be seeking admission for my daughter to GIIS,Pune in 2010 for Grade 2. Can you please let me know if your daughter was successful in getting the admission and what is your opinion about the school. Did you get any feedback from anyone? They had called my daughter today for an aptitude test. But since we are abroad and will be relocating in March 2010. So they will be scheduling a test in the month of March. Kindly let me know ur experience.

Hi Sheena,

My daughter got through the test. The test was little difficult because they had science also for 4th std. admission. English and Maths was easy. Regarding the school not much of information i could collect from the parents. I am new to pune, I will be relocating from bangalore during april. They didn't have admissions for 1st std. My son will be in 1st next year. I am confused now, I don't know what to do for him.

I happend to meet the vice principal she was very polite and calm in answering to all our queries. To my knowledge the school seems to be good my daughter was happy with the teachers whom she met during the test time.

regards

Hi Kav,

Thanks for your mail. Good to hear that your daughter has got through.  I am also counting on the same school for admission. I feel other schools we will have to wait till the last minute if there is any vacancy.

How is their campus? My husband had been there few months back. He said that it was pretty good.  I have not seen the place that is the reason I am asking you.

Where will you be staying in Pune? We have got a flat at Khadki, Montvert Pristine. So we will be put up there.

Thanks once again. Shall keep in touch. Do write if you get any more info about the school.

Nice to hear from you. The school campus is very good. I can under stand your situation, though my husband has started his work in pune I cannot leave the job of find the school to him so I am personally here to have a search. I am planning to locate a school for my younger one also and then plan for a house.

Hello Kav, i am new to this forum. I am relocating from New Jersey sometime 2010 April. My husband is already in Pune and has taken apartment in Kalyani Nagar.

I am looking for admissions for 4th grade and sr.kg for my tow daughters for 2010-2011. I am looking for easy transition type school atmosphere for couple of years and at tehs ame time i am looking for high-fee structure big name schools. I was impressed with VIBYOR HOGH from website but after reading the comments, ia m kind of scared. GIIS fee structure looks little better than VIBGYOR HIGH too. How about ORCHID? We thought of St.Arnold's that is almost just 5 minutes from aprtment. Do you have any suggestions about this new school, St.Arnold's?

I am worried only about the transition for my kids.I am so nervous.  Any feedback might be helpful.

How about these schools like orchid/GIIS as far as distance from Kalyani nagar?

Regards.

Hi preetha,

I'am new to pune. I know this place only for past 10 days. I have no idea of st. Arnold. To my knowledge i think kalyaninagar is little far from pimpri (GIIS). I'am also in the same position as yours. I have 2 kids elder in 3rd and younger in sr kg now. Getting inside GIIS for 4th grade is not a problem but for 1st is out of question.Orchids is very good but when i went there i was not able to meet anybody the person in the reception told me they issue forms only on April depending on the vacancy. Getting into Orchids is little tough.

I will keep u informed in case if i get to know anything more.

bye

Hi Kav,

 

 Thanks for your mail. I am happy to know that the school atmosphere is good. Really getting tensed about the admission.

To get into Grade 1 for your son will be quite easy. There are many schools offering for Grade 1.

Vidya valley is also a nice school. My friends son is studying in that school. They are quite happy with the school.

Keep in touch.

Sheena I checked the site. It is an icse school I want a cbse school. I'am keen in that. I feel depth of the core subjects is really good in cbse than icse.

 

sheens 2009-12-30 09:39:41

 

ok I am sorry. i was not aware about that. Why don't u try DPS, PUNE. IT IS A CBSE SCHOOL, BUT GIIS AND DPS WILLL BE BOTH ON DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. U WILL HAV TO LOOK OUT FOR A HOUSE IN BETWEEN BOTH THE SCHOOLS. MY DAUGHTER IS STUDYING IN DPS,SHARJAH. BUT I AM NOT LOOKING FOR DPS PUNE, SINCE IT IS VERY FAR FROM KHADKI, AND NO BUSES COME CLOSE BY. THE BUS COMES 3KMS AWAY FROM KHADKI.

 

kav 2009-12-30 09:45:03

 

It is really far as you say. I contacted them they issue application only in March and there is no guarntee of getting the admission. I have to take a tc in present school by feb. I really don't know what to do for my younger one. Ok then I am hanging up. I will see this ssrvm and let you know about it also. I had been to this khadki last week to one of our friends place it seems to be a malayalee dominated area.

bye for now. Thanks a lot. Will keep in touch

OK, DO LET ME KNOW ABOUT THIS SCHOOL.

Hi Kav,

Do you plan to stay in Khadki? You can also check DAV school in Aundh. It is a CBSE school. Seems to be a good school...only thing is, teacher to student ratio is quite high.

 

sheens 2009-12-30 15:30:48

 

Hi Pranam,

 

 Thanks for ur reply. I have alredy checked out DAV. I have personally visited that school. but I am not all that happy, since there is no campus. And they don't have a playground. We are looking for a school with a lot of sports activities. Since my daughter is very interested in sports.

 

Sheena

 

pranam 2009-12-30 21:51:38

 

In that case, two more suggestions..1) Vidya Valley (ICSE) and 2)Vikhe Patil (CBSE) ...they would be slghtly farther from your place, though. But these 2 are considered good schools with sufficient focus on extra curricular activities.

Hi Kav, thanks for your reply. It gave me a very good feeling and sort of relief seeing your caring reply. Kalyani nagar might be far off from GIIS but we are ready to move close to school depending on the availability of school admission. so you are saying getting 4th grade admission might be easy compared to sr.KG???

Best wishes

Preetha

Hi Preetha,

I'am not sure about the admissions for sr.kg. It is difficult only for 1st grade.

Hi Sheena,

I went to SSRVM pimpri and navipeth. Pimpri is just a very small building. In navipeth the school campus at present is not good. They said they are shifiting to a village near chandhini chowk. I just asked my kids to take up a test there. I heard from other friends the school is good. But at present i am not considering this school because of the campus. Any idea how far it would be from chinchwad to chandini chowk?

bye

Hi Kav,

 

Wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Thanks for your reply. I have not heard the name of the school that u had mentioned. Anyway there is no point in considering the same since it is not good.   Chinchwadto Chandni Chowk is very far. You can also check out on google map from the net about how much kilometers is it far off. I usually do that.

My sis in law who is staying at Aundh has mentioned about INDIRA NATIONAL SCHOOL, at Wakad. Why don't u try that school.

I think it is a CBSE SCHOOL.

Anyway do keep in touch.

Sheena

 

 

kav 2010-01-02 10:28:22

 

Hi Sheena,

Wish you also a very Happy New Year. I checked in Indira also age is a problem for my son. They have a cut of date of september and he is october born and they have entrance only on Jan 9th and I'am back to Bangalore now. Schools will start from 4th for the kids. Any way I have asked my husband to check on that also after Jan15th because they would publish the entrance results by 15th. Anyway lets see what is on our cards. Thanks a lot for your suggestions.

Bye for now. Keep in touch

Hi sucisen,

 I had taken admission for my daughter for 4th grade in GIIS and I am new to Pune. I feel kalyani nagar is really far. Which class is your son going to? I don't know much about the bus facility in GIIS. I am planning to send my daughter in school bus only. I stay near wakad area. If you get to know about the bus facility of GIIS pls pass on the message.
