Hi,

We had interaction yesterday for LKG and also received acceptance email. But all seats are for new Borewell Road Kideens campus, and not for the main school campus.

Hey did u ask for a reason behind not providing seats in main campus.

We too have got acceptance for my child in nursery for their borewell road campus... has anybody seen their boreeell road kideens and gunjur campus??
 


isri 2013-10-13 15:42:04

 

We went to gunjur but we found only a board with school name. Probably they havent started yet. Anyone who has seen borewell campus?
 

gemini09 2013-10-13 19:16:17

 

No... they told us they will invite us for a visit to the new Borewell road campus once the model class is ready. But we haven't got any intimation yet. Their Gunjur campus has not yet started building construction, but will be ready according to management for students from Class 1 (i.e. 2.5 years later for my son in LKG)

Hello,

We have received admission confirmation mail from Deens last week. In that mail they have not specify campus name (ECC road OR Borewell roal). Has anyone received confirmation mail with campus name mention in it ?

Thank you.
 


isri 2013-10-14 15:58:57

 

Have all of u received confirmation mails on the same day of interview?
 

Reyansh22082010 2013-10-14 16:21:26

 

Are interviews for LKG ( non siblings case ) already on going ?
Can you mention the appl ref nos for which these been done and any link where we can check the status of our application ?
 

dskk 2013-10-14 16:21:33

 

We got the confirmation next day of our interview. Yes it did say the borewell road campus. In fact, principal said it during our interaction itself. Does anyone know where is this borewell road kideens??? We tried searching on borewell road..cudnt spot it out! We also went to see gunjur campus..its really really deep interior from main avrthur road ..almost 3 kms inside.. and therr is nothing other than a board and a small boundary wall...I am not sure what Deens is upto!!
 

isri 2013-10-14 18:19:18

 

U can chech d status on d website.
 

dnsnursary2014 2013-10-14 21:45:21

 

Hi Isri,

Thanks,

We also got confirmation of admission for our son to nursery in Borewell road (though 60 seats were available in whitefield the principal insisted that they are for siblings and not for new joinees) .We also visited the gunjur land and its quite far...all farmlands around and only compound wall for now.

So are you guys paying the fee within the stipulated time mentioned in the mail or are you waiting to visit the borewell road campus.. ?
 

dskk 2013-10-15 12:17:22

 

@door.. we tried asking them to send us the address of borewell road..havent heard back yet. We have accepted so far..in huge dilemna abt making payment... problem is not many school options in this area. .greenwood high looks great..but fees for higher classes is on the higher side.. are u considering any other school or going ahead with payment?
 

 Former member 2013-10-15 12:24:08

 

We are also very confused since even the construction at gunjur has not yet started. We mailed them back saying we need to visit atleast the borewell road before we decide on paying fee. So they came back saying they are going to arrange a tour of kideens borewell campus on 19th oct and that they will send out the invites. We can decide on confirming and payment after the tour.

Exactly...not many good CBSE schools around whitefield...
We were just considering  Ekya/euroschool [ but does not have nursery]/ Whitefield global school/Global indian internation school..

What about you?
 

gemini09 2013-10-15 12:48:53

 

We went ahead and paid the fees today to confirm the seat.
But very disappointed/confused with the Borewell Road campus. We got directions to the location from the office, and only found a villa type house there (brown building opp. VIHA Preschool). Not too impressed and a trifle disappointed. Waiting for the official tour invite from Deens to see how they renovate the place. We have not yet got the invite though, they said there are taking parents in batches.

But this was definitely not what we had in mind when we chose Deens. The ECC road school campus and faculty were what impressed us. Now not sure whether to keep this as the final school choice for my son, or again look for other options. Frustrating!
 

chikola 2013-10-16 12:54:04

 

They had told us that we can wait for the tour visit and later make the payment.
I am waiting for an email for the tour visit and probably that will give us a platform to interact with many parents before we take a final call.
I saw the gunjur site its 3kms inside after a diversion from chrysalis. Just worried on how the campus would be and will they complete on time ??
Do you have any idea on WGS ?? Pls share your views

Hello All,

We also received confirmation mail, but the campus details are not mentioned in the mail.
During interaction we were told that seats are available only in Borewell road campus.

We havn't paid the fees yet, Planning to meet admin dept tmrw.
is there any fee difference between ECC campus and Borewell road campus??

 

chikola 2013-10-16 17:31:09

 

hello lucky 1

the fees is less than the ECC campus

 


gemini09 2013-10-16 19:01:36

 

One time admission fee is 15K for both, but tuition fee is 25K for Borewell Road vs 30K for ECC.
I doubt Borewell Road has any campus. It will probably be just a building.
 

dskk 2013-10-16 19:08:12

 

Same here.. we too havent paid the fees yet.. it's very disappointing to experience all this with Deens! I too am planning to visit the school admin tomorrow and then will decide whether to make payments or not. We are even cinsidering GWH now..coz if we have yo send our child to gunjur..might as well send him to a school with better infrastructure. WGS ..i have heard is an ok school..relatively new..small and simple in approach. Havent visited the school yet. Anybody can update on admission sttaus at vibgyor high kundalahalli gate? Hows the school? Road to school is terrible..havent been able to find a way to access the school campus yet!!

hi...
 

Avinash80 2013-10-16 21:47:21

 

Hi All,

If you want to see the PICTURES of borewell road campus. Just click on the email id which you received from Deens as admission confirmation. It takes you to google picassa and there are around 20 pictures of that bungalow on borewell road where the Nursery , UKG & LKG children will be hosted. I heard that there are in total = 150+ children . Can the bungalow host these many children ? Need to clarify with deens management. So you are paying the fees for the bungalow and not ECC campus as of now till std 1.

Also, if they are yet to start construction on gunjur road then will they complete it on time? will the children have to continue till grade 1 or possibly 2 in bungalow only ? Hope the children dont spend their growing years with the building construction.

Will some of the teaching staff be shared with gunjur campus? will the teachers who are settled in the ECC campus be willing to travel and work in Gunjur ? or is it that it will be more biased towards new staff ? But parents are banking on the Well established reputation of ECC !

The Deens management should clarify the MILESTONES of the new campus developments with the parents to remove these ambiguities and uncertainities. If they dont do that then we are betting the money on something non-existent just because of the ECC reputation. Undoubtedly Deens ECC has been excelling in most of the aspects, just that fate of Gunjur has to be communicated clearly to the parents.

If anyone has answers to the above questions please post for the benefit of the community members.
 

rj008 2013-10-16 22:47:02

 

Good questions ! Hopefully we get the answers from them.
Also, I do not know why they don't plan something like (atleast eventually) :
play-school to 5th in ECC and 6th to 12th Grade in Gunjur.
(This is what is followed in Bethany School, Kumarans I heard.)
 

chikola 2013-10-17 14:00:45

 

hey friends

Deens have started sending email for tour visit for borewell campus.
Hope most of you would have received.
we can pose our questions on 19th 
 

lucky1 2013-10-17 14:26:49

 

Thank you chikola and gemini

We just got info from admin that we can pay fee after visiting the borewell campus
Do you have any other schools in mind near by whitefield?

Parents, please provide your views on WGS school
 

isri 2013-10-17 15:16:02

 

Went to see WGS today. Compared to Ekya, the infrastructure is better but they have increased the fees: 1) Reg. 5000 2) Add. Fee 55000 3) refundable deposit 15000 4) annual fee 55000 - two installments Books, uniform and transport additional. If parents of std 2 and above can share the review upon studies it can help.
 

gemini09 2013-10-17 15:24:27

 

Yes... got the invite for Borewell road campus visit. Lets have a look and then get our questions/concerns addressed that day.
