Lets use this forum to discuss about st.joseph school in perambur. I am looking for 2014 LKG admission for my daughter. I am from perambur. Any one there with the same case?
I could be seeking next year 2015 for my daughter. St.Joseph is one of the options I have.
I am alumni of this school and the school is best in discipline and values taught.
The best teachers were there.. Infrastructure is very good.
Any idea on the current standards ? Do they have additional curriculam besides samacheer .
The schools is one of the very few good schools in Perambur but unluckily its falls under samacheer. Heard the school was very good before when there was anglo indian teachers but now their strenght is very less. So not sure about the standard now interms of english communication, etc. Any idea about this? Praying god we get through this as we already lost with bhavans and chinmaya.
My Brother and Sister Kids studying there.
Academics and Communication is too good.
Extra Activities they make all the kid participate in some stage show every year.
They have Basket Ball and Table Tennis. Not sure about other games.
But last year I heard it was became tough and people went through so many sources for getting seats.
Happy to hear that communication is good there as i am not too keen on Academics. In this competitive world communication is very imp.
You are right about the recommondations part. But i dont know anyone to influence us except Lord Jesus himself :)
Any more updates/idea about the school pls post it here as we all get benefitted out of it. TIA.
Don't worry surely god will help you in securing seat.
I think if you know church father in perambur you can try contacting them.
Also last year one person was not selected in the list but later on he paid some donation and secured seat.
So better you try all the possibilities.
Thanks Lavanya. Feeling positive. Just checked with the school. They haven't sorted out the non christians and will 2 more weeks for the same. I have no contacts in perambur. Yes I need to meet the father but not sure about his availability. Will go directly and enquire.
i m from perambur, even me applied lkg for my daughter, didnt get any letter still, day before sterday they had interview for christians.
Hi Lavanya, Thanks for the info , I have lost touch with the school. Besides the samacheer books , do they have additional books for grammar , GK ,computer science or any other supplement books ? Do they also teach third language . You inputs will be very helpful. Thanks in advance.
Hello Lavanya. Pls provide us more info about the school as you know students studying there currently. This will help us more.
@slokansangi , are you also from perambur? I also called the school and they said only christian applications are going on.
rmanjula26 & sshalusri:
I will collect details with my sister today and will post you the information.
Anyone got call from school regarding LKG admission? I am yet to get it. pls update. Thanks.
@lavanya, did you manage to collect any info from your sister? TIA.
Sorry for late reply.
This is the info regarding academics:
Even though its samacheer the weekly activities like preparation of chart work,preparing of doing something in waste materials,using boxes and so on. Like that they are getting more activities every week. My sister feels like overloaded itself with these activities. But it's a good learning but takes more time to complete all this every week.
Every two months test and other revision seems very good.
Students speaks in English only.
For all the festivals they have cultural in which all kids participate.
Even they do for World water day,Earth day,Women's day.
Preference given to:
Anglo indian,Catholic,Recommendation then to open quota.
Seems if you have collected the application in the first 10 then will consider.
Are you all trying for 1st ? or L.K.G in St.John's ?
Since my sister was saying for 1st mostly all process over.
All the best.
Hi Lavanya , Thank you so much for sharing the info. gud to hear the communication standards are still maintained.
Is it St. Joseph still doesn't have KG section , KG is only at St.John's?
Hi Lavanya, Thankyou so much. Thanks a ton. quite informative. I am happy about the communication is in English. BTW we applied for LKG in st.johns as the kindergarden is available here only. But i dont have any reference. Church father ref also nt considered it seems. I am daily checking with the school and they say wait for 2 weeks(constant reply). Pls help by any chance you can. TIA.
Ya L.K.G St.John's.
Because my brother daughter studied in St.Johns in primary till this year she is moving to St.Joseph.
I know the pain of waiting for a school but unfortunately I don't have any that high reference.. Still me also struggling for my kid admission.
My sister said if any Bishop or if you have any high officials in Railways since they used to get Railway Ground or police gives they will consider.
You can meet the Sister and say good about the school and you can say for building fund some amount this may work out.
Superb guidance lavanya. Thanks much. Yes i am planning to go to school everyday :)
hi @sshalusri /
i went and met the principal on tuesday, rgdng the call letter, she said only by second week of April we will get the letters and they also told me that they 've received almost 600 forms, so it will take time to select the candidate for sending the call letters. On the same day i ve met one more parent who visited the principal, actually they applied on 15th apr'14 , even they didnt get the letter still.
@slokansangi, which part of perambur you are from? i am from BB road.
i m in loco works road
oh! thats nice. you are nearer to school. All the best :)
yeh its the same here. Bitting nails, fingers crossed. Lets pray Jesus heps us :)
Friends, I am calling the school everyday and get the same reply "Wait for 2 weeks". I wonder how they say this as already 2 weeks over and they dont even bother to change the reply. Clueless
Hi @slokansangi, do you have any other school as backup?
tomorrow i m gng to apply jaigopal garodia which is in periyar nagar, i applied in maharishi, bhavans, chinmaya, sindhi, but no response from any. last week i attended interview in montford(CBSE), i got selected they asked me to pay fees this week, but i called them and extended the time for paying building fund 10k.
Hi Sangi, Jaigopal garodia is a samacheer school. Vivekandana vidyalaya perambur(cbse) is opening online form from 10th to 14th april. Try that. i too lost with all the schools mentioned above. I am applying in KRM tomorrow, just to be on safer side. Not sure about the school. have you visited the school, any idea about it? Still scope in kilpauk is open for LKG , my daughter did her PREkg there, but the school has only till 1st std. so reluctant to admit there as getting admission for UKG in other schools is almost impossible.
have u applied in any other schools, like montford and vivekanandha, those schools are closer to your place. your kid is girl or boy?
@slokansangi - Mine is a girl. as i said vivekanandha is opening on 10th only. montform cbse - i am gng tomorrow. do you know anything about this school.
