We been to the Anual Day function of RBGS Nandambakkam which was on 2nd Feb 2014 in EVP Hall just to see the kids performance and to get the feedback from the parents. Want to share the feedback that we got. We did not hear any constraints from any of the parents there. Every one says.. good and no pressure for the kids and their parents. Though they say there are improvements needed, they also added that those can be excused being their first year.
We are looking at this as our second option.. though its 5km from our new house which is less than a km from omega :(
Any one stay near by Gerugambakkam or Kolapakkam looking for Pre.K.G.. Looking for friends for my son... so that it would be easy when they start their school... ha.. ha..) tooo much is it ?
not too much :-)
Only worry to me is the Fee's and they are telling that they will increase 5-10 % on yearly basis. :-)
Yeah, even I heard RBGS is good as I had posted in one of my earlier posts. Second option for us too :) It is less about 1 km from our house. We stay at Manapakkam..
Thanks for sharing the feedback on RBGS. I stay at Ramapuram and RBGS is less than 2 Kms from my home. Now I am thinking of having it in my list.
Hi did any one get intimation on pre k.g admission 2014 for Omega school? and any one staying near by pallavaram, pammal or anakaputhur applied for this school?
Omega School will publish their list of finalized candidates by this weekend. They said after Feb16th call letters will be sent for shortlisted candidates & selection interview will be conducted week after next (week of 24th Feb). Pls post if anyone gets details here. Thanks
Hi Balaji, Did you call the School today? You mean they publish the names of short-listed candidates in their website?
Hey.. good... thanks for the update. how do you know that they are publishing the result ? got the udpate from school ?
Thanks for the update. Tried to open the site and it says "Service Temporarily Unavailable" :-(
How will the intimate us ? Is it through email?
I was told thro' someone that parents will be intimated after Feb16th about the interaction dates. I dont know if they will publish details online or you'll get it on your mail. I believe we will get the results by next week. Lets hope for the best.
Yes their website is down since yesterday evening & today also its not working.... I'm hoping that we will get shortlisted candidates results by next week.... Lets see
Thanks Balaji for the update.
Anyone staying near pallavaram/Pammal/Anakaputhur, have their kid studying at OMEGA?
School site is up since yesterday late evening.. but they did'nt release any list yet .. :(
Did they publish the results online last year? I think we will be intimated by email only.
Hi All - Just want to share the feed back.... We were searching of students studying in 8th Std above to speak to them and understand about the school... finally we found one of our common friend's kids are studying in Omega. Their 4 kids were studying in the same school - First Son - 10 th Std - Second Son - 7th and then their twin daughters - 4th Std.
They shifted their daughters from Omega to another CBSE school last year it seems and they are doing much much better than they were in Omega. Now they are planning to move their other kids also from Omega. I am surprised when I heard that. I spoke to the kid studying in 10th Std. According to him, they are not providing any special attention for the kids those are average and below average.
They don't force students to study by giving pressure from the initial days, as a parent its good. But during the exams, they are bound to fail since lack of preparation from the beginning... if they stamp a student as "intelligent" they will continue to boost him.. but not the others .. He also added, these days they are not giving preference in the communication too.. and teachers also speak in local languages inside the class room. They don't enforce English communication within the campus. NEVER EXPECTED THIS FROM A REPUTED SCHOOL.
He also added, as far as IGCSE goes, its different from communication and teachers perspective too... but not sure of the procedure to get admission to IGCSE board.
Not sure if all these feedback are correct from all students and parents perspective..
Parents of existing students of Omega, please help us with your feedback.
Thanks Balaji... where is this school located. We moved to our new flat near to omega school now. Do they have any distance constraints ? We had our primary shortlisted school as "Omega". Now really in confused state, Untill we know the procedure for IGCSE admission. I hoping for the best.
Asha - Amrita Vidyalayam is near Nesapakkam/West KK Nagar. Nearby to ppl living in KKN, Porur, Ekkaduthangal, Nandambakkam, Ramapuram, Jaffekahnpet, Manappakam, Mugalivakkam etc.....
Pls check their website, just to keep as your alternative or option B.... Thanks

No.. I don't think so they started sending yet.
if anyone get a call from omega pls do inform us .
From the school website published today!!

- Distance of the family from the school: All families living at a distance of more than 10 kilometres from the school are being notified of our inability to consider their application for admission.
- Preference will be given for the following:
- Applications received from siblings of existing students
- Applications received for Classes 5 to 8 for hostel.
The school is currently working on identifying the dates for student and parent interactions, and these dates will be intimated shortly.
Once again, thank you for the interest shown in the school.
