hi pritam,

my son is studying there. as you have been to school. the activity there is minimal as of now compared to other schools. due to lack of space. but overall coaching is good.

thanking you

SMS was mistake and they have corrected error so no issue !!!

Give her due for conducting an event lets not just carp around, lets discuss constructively.

John...

It was a mistake and yes everyone makes a mistake ( that includes me!). They did not follow that with an apology...but called it a clarification. The only change was that they deleted " We will not allow you ward into the school" part and send the same message.

Well leave the "Apology" part.....such a wrong SMS sent to all the parents in the school was not even checked by someone...Lack of attention to detail by the management is a concern. Arw twisting or arrogance is a concern. And this is just not one...there are so many that i have noticed in the last 6 months, i have made my decision.

I agree about the constructive discussion..So tell me what can we do to solve the problem? Well dont suggest meeting the principle, my wife tried it a few times with no success, unless you can pull some strings.

The need to have a strong parent association is a must and we must organize ourselves to create one, so we can ensure there is transparency and accountability from the school management in aspects that concern the safety and future of our kids.

Hi Hari,

Yeah you are right that there are no channels of communication with the school authorities. Even i felt so which i have highlighted in my previous post.. And regarding PTA i really support your demand so that we could play constructive approach in dealing with matters.

Even i tried to get details of parents residing in my area so that i could arrange alternative mode of transport. But i had not received any cooperation. I had met The PRO Officer in this regard, I feel these issues can be resolved if there is strong PTA. And many times i had expressed my desire....

Anyways as things are spanning out i am finding my kid really enjoying the school environment and he likes going to school and praises the Class teacher Deepa most of the time....

Yeah had few bad experience last year ...but things have improved this year.......i feel lot more desired to be done....glad to have parents coming out of shelves and using the forum..............

I totally second your thought on this one HariKris. We had the same exact feeling at the PTM. They know they are at fault thats why when we try to ask any questions they get annoyed and show thier anger. The Principal was better last year but this year she also had turned rude, you cannot approach the school for any greiviance as they are all waiting to start a fight with you however polite you are!!

My son this year is comparatively happy as the teachers this year are good, but no info about curriculam, portions, text books, writing books makes things very difficult for parents to compensate add to that an extremely rude management,

About the sms shame on them for having such a person who doesn't know how to word an sms, shows clearly what respect they have for parents having collected all the money.

Recently a friend of mine removed her daughter from this school after a week of joining as the daughter couldn't adjust and had such a tough time getting her money back.

I wish we could convey these thoughts directly to the school as to what image they are creating.

it would have been better if this was a Open discussion witm School highlighting their shortfall, they have putofrth assurance to Parents.

Mrs.Madhuvantis credentials and backdrop leave us no doubt that she can overcome this, and its phase of activity which several of us go through in startups.

She has only to better and she has her family at her side to guide!!!
