I'm very much with you wrt enjoying kids performance.Pls note that I had already paid Rs.500 twds the family function.What came to me as a surprise was the miscommunication from the school authortities.
Initially the school was ok even if my daughter cud not make it to the rehearsal.I had explained them my inability and the coordinator was very empthateic.Finally after paying Rs.500 in the morning i was told that she cannot perform as she cannot make it for the rehearsal.Why was this not communicated in the inception?
I'm no one new to school annual day function.My elder son's preschool did it very nicely.Infact they had organised video and photographs and after the annual day they had showed us the master copy and asked us to choose the photos and pay for the number of photos.Even CD was optional.When I suggested the same to SEED they said,the mandatory photo and CD is a management decision which was communicated only on Monday.Its jus ridiculuos.I jus felt that we are made skape goats for whatever they decide.
Why cant the school authorities plan the rehearsal on the previous saturday.
How will working parents accompany children to the rehearsal?
These are some practical situations the school must have thought about.
What I expected from them was a complete budgeted amount and not asking for cost on a piece meal basis.
Infact the centre coordinator was calling me every now and then asking for the money which I gave.But she didnt even have the courtesy to call me and tell me that my child cannot perform....that was so unprofessional.
Wrt PTM myself and my hubby attended only one PTM since the time we admitted our child.We were given only the paperwork that the child has made,but no assessment sheet.
It was an unpleasant experience for me with SEED nanganallur.
