I 'm looking for my son at Sherwood Hall for LKG. How about the school . I'm very new to this and howz the studies there and extra curriculat activities . and what abt the fee and donations. Pls pls anybody know pls let me know.
hv u applied for this academic year? the school is ok according to my research n feedback frm frnds. they dont put pressure academically. not much homework. no big playground. students will hv ample time for extracurriculars. language s gud and the teachers are friendly. some students hv a little attitude but of course there are well disciplined and well mannered kids too. if u r looking for a school tht doesnt pressurise students or parents in any way, this is the one.
s all gud , but still i do not understand the admission process...
they are not yet start to call for discussion...
Hi, did they finished issuing application for LKG? I'm not aware of that..
yes they issued and form submission s also over.
yes their admission process s a mystery. they said they will give a call, thats it !
ya that is the main part of sherwood, atleast some other school we know the process what is happening and the funny part is they are charing Rs.1000/- for application form...
Today only I got application from this school and tomorrow going to submit. Application cost is too much..
Anybody know about Sheerwood Hall, Chetpet interview process ? Tomorrow at 11 I'm having interview for my son. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
i heared is gud school only...
All the best
I too waiting for the call...since it is close to my house than DB.....
So pls update after interview...
wen i called the school last month they said applications were issued on feb14th and tht they r not issuing anymore. they said form submission was also over. did u get the application this month? is it stilll available.
@Jgeorge - Thanks and I will update about the process.
I got the application on 04th March and submitted on 05th March. Today they called me for document verification on 07th March.
Yesterday we attended interview. First one of the staff verify the original documents then asked the kid tell colors and asked to write something using crayons. My son did well. Then we met principal, the first question she asked was, what do you know about this school and why did choose this school for yr kid. We said some bla bla thing. Then she straightaway told that this school is running under trust you need to donate some amt for the trust. We said ok and thinking how much we can tell. Then she herself told that you need to pay 2 lacs that too within 2 days then we put yr kid name in selected list on March 21st.
ok so much......
Tday We attended the interview . the same thing.. its a eye wash ...money is the matter. if we r ready to pay the amt the seat is yours.... but my question is , Is the amt is worth for it.. that much the school is good..b;case this there was no principal and this Feb joined a new one and nobody knows howz she...the older one is very good..like that people telling...
i got the form yest and attended the interaction today. i was so surprised when they asked us to pay within 2 days. then y r they putting the selection list on 21st. i dont like the way they issue the appln forms. they said its over when i enquired thru phone but r still givin forms. now i understand y such schools r not preferred much by the parents. although competitive, i respect the systematic admission process at chinmaya , sboa and maharishi.
i hv the same thought. is the amt worth. bhavans s a gud school with a huge playground and gud amenities so its worth to pay there but here?
i too recieved call from them and one of my freind too on monday.....
i think they are calling everybody who all are applied and they can ask for money how much they want , i did not expect this much they will ask, but 3 years before itself they charged aroung 75k if u see the review before......
Anybody have an idea to join there? when r u going to pay? anybody make a call to that admin person? pls update ...
The same thing happened to me,and i have paid too, according to me education is good their, the way they educate good and different compared to other CBSE schools b,cos 2 of my cousins son are are schooling thier. And ofcourse ther are some draw backs like play ground and extra cricular are there but still i belive in good educ.
@Eddy333 - Hi, how did you approach that admin person? Will they give few more days to pay? Any negotiation in amt? Please reply me.
How much u paid? and u directly approach the admin person or else thro' some bodys ? any negotiations ?...pls update.. and I have two options ...one is chettinad vidyashram and another is Sherwoodhall ? which one shall we choose? pls update.... we stayed at parrys...
can u give ur mail id...thanks in adv.
pls update anybody else admitted in Sher?
Decisions is urs....
after I am seeing ppl are not willing to disclose the information even one of my known contact too....
but still u can check with @hrushikesh....
I can understand ur situation as a parent...
I paid 2L and no negotiation, i called directly, i choose Sherwood Bcoz the way of teaching is different comparing with other CBSE schools.
@jgeor , @ Eddy333
thanks for ur updates...
still in confusion..
I am also paid same amt, i am waiting for final confirmation
Hi friends, I am new to this blog but i find it very useful as i am also searching for my daughter lkg admission. we are from perambur, this area dosnt have high standard schools. i mean good english communication here. Vivekanda vidyalaya in perambur is good in terms of coaching but they communicate in tamil only including the teachers. So i am looking for high quality schools. We are rejected in Bhavans and Chinmaya. How abuot sherwood hall. I see the donation is pretty high. But i am ok to pay considering my daughter's future. But is it worth as the school is very small and less extra activities. Pls advise.
Hi @eddy333 and @jame - can you pls share your email ids jus incase you are ok to discuss about the school.
@vijimom - have you decided yet?
