mommyof2 2010-05-24 13:16:34


hi lili81.. wonderful to have you here.

i have given my kid's uniforms for stitching.  we will get them by end of this week.  and yes its red checked shirt and red trousers.. i was checking all over for the info on shoes. are you sure its white shoes/socks? 

other than this, all that we have done to prepare my daughter for the school is to keep repeating the school name to her so she is familiar. do pls write back..


lili81 2010-05-26 08:09:30


hai mommyof2,

thanks for your reply,i will confirm with the school and tell you about the shoes,

my son doesnt write the alphabets properly,how to train him on this,becoz in lkg he has to write isn't it?pls give me some tips on this,



mommyof2 2010-05-26 22:16:43


oh man.. i hope they dont have to write alphabets on the first day of LKG; its the school thats going to teach them.  then why worry lili81??  i haven't taught my daughter anything on writing except the basic circle, different lines.. thats it.  not sure if we need to hurry there. 

other mommies with older kids.. pls help here !


mommyof2 2010-06-07 11:46:36


hi all.. just another 2 weeks to go.  any idea why sankara is starting much later than the rest of the schools?  looks like most other LKGs have already started operating.  no hurries, but just curious why.

got the uniforms stitched, but didn't show them to the kid yet. she would want to wear them immediately.   also got white socks & girls white shoes (buckle type).  she roleplays herself going to sankara school and me playing every other role.  otherwise i just let her enjoy her time.  this is the time.. she has many more years to just study and study.. not sure if this is good, but i dont feel like pushing her for anything else.

whats up with the rest of you?  what r ur kiddos upto?  any of you engaging vans for pickup/drop?


lili81 2010-06-07 14:25:11


hai all,

i too have given my son's uniforms for stitching,got white shoes and socks,what about the school van?when do they give books?



mommyof2 2010-06-08 16:02:48


school van is only for specific places.. till adyar not sure.  private vans go to other places also.  they give books in the first week i guess.. thats what was written in the booklet they have given along with the fees receipt


Hemzz 2010-06-11 17:08:17


hi all,

  My daughter has been admitted in this school only. Does anyone know the exact date when the school is opening for LKG coz i called up today they r discussing abt tht(this is bcoz of govt's order tht schools should b closed from 23rd June to 25th).  if anyone knows abt it plz post the date.  wht abt the shoes? plz respond


lili81 2010-06-14 10:57:55


hai hemzz,

when i called the school on friday ,they said the school reopens only on monday for the other students and they are not sure about the reopening date for lkg,they have asked me to call today(14 june) and confirm,i will call them today and confirm,reg shoes it is white shoes and white socks,


lili81 2010-06-14 11:05:15


hai mommyof2,

can i have some tips to prepare my son for d school,he s very playful,all the time,he doesnt sit n one place and write,he will write for 2mins then runs away,finding it difficult to make him write,what have u planned for transportation?where do u stay? reasonable distance?i have opted for school van,but they havn't confirmed.what about private vans?


mommyof2 2010-06-14 22:06:50


lili81..  i guess i am a little take it easy mommy.  my dd says "i dont want to write" or "i will write after coloring" etc... actually, all this only when i ask her to do some shapes.  haven't taught any alphabets writing yet.  i think all that is age; at one point they ll outgrow it. am not worried at this point. 

transportation - i have checked with one private van and will fix that once school reopens.

did you get to talk to the school today on the reopening date?


Meeti 2010-06-17 13:45:31


Hi mommyof2,

My son has also got admission in adayar sankara...which private van did you enquire? is it Gomathi travels?

And any updates on the school re-opening date?


Meeti 2010-06-17 14:04:38


Called up the school today and they said school reopens for LKG on 28th.


mommyof2 2010-06-17 14:10:03


hi meeti

thank you for the info..

there was no travels name as such.. this is the phone number i called 9840575553 (referred by my friend - she uses this for her daughter's drop).


rmkarthik 2010-06-22 10:37:30


Hi Mommyof2

  Sorry for the late reply. Was very busy with other things.  I stay in Velachery. I'm thinking of dropping him in the school in the morning and get a private van to drop him in the afternoon. I've got the uniform ready for him.

 Hello everyone,

                   I am at present residing in Trivandrum and since my DH  has been transferred to  chennai, v r plaanning to join my 3.5 yr daughter there... Came to know that all the schools have there admissions closed.... But we r trying in sankara adayar n they have  said will inform once the class starts t his monday..... so it would be really helpful if anyone in this group could help me by telling about the fee structure, the expected donation( or how much u paid), the school timings etc.... An early reply in this regard would be really helpful for me.....  I have also been  offered a seat in Schram Academy, but v  r confused now.... so if anyone knows about this school pls do give ur feed back...... Hoping to hear from u all soon.... thanks 





Meeti 2010-06-22 13:25:50


Hi rmkarthik,

We are staying in Kandanchavadi...we were also planning to drop in the morning and use a private van for return to start with...


is it a tempo van or Maruti van? any idea? just worried whether travel woudl be safe for these small kids in the tempos. Do you know whether there would be another person in the van other than the driver?



rmkarthik 2010-06-22 14:10:34



  I talked to the driver once about the van. I don't know whether it's a tempo or a Maruthi van.  He said that the fees will be Rs.1000/ for a two-way trip and Rs.500 for one way.

There will also be another person along with the driver. 


rmkarthik 2010-06-22 14:12:03


Hi Geetha

  As far as I know, Sankara is a very good school and have always heard good reviews about it.  I don't know much about Schram Academy.




mommyof2 2010-06-22 17:07:29


Geetha - rmkarthik's view is what i heard from people also.  Sankara is a reputed school in chennai for a long time.  but that doesn't mean they follow contemporary forms of education. from what i heard from other moms its just a normal school, but academically oriented.  Schram's is from a different part of chennai - so not aware of it.

Meeti  - just today i spoke to the driver that i am going to engage for my daughter.  he said it is a Tata sumo for LKG kids coz the numbers would be lesser when compared to higher classes.  he agreed to a drop in perungudi.  Btw, there is a different phone number that the driver can be reached at.  the phone number i earlier gave belongs to another person and she referred to this driver.  let me know if you want the exact phone number and details of the driver.


mommyof2 2010-06-22 17:09:28


Do any of know if we need to send snacks for the LKG kids?  i mean, i would probably be sending something, but is it a heavy snack or a light one that people there prefer?  based on that, i ll plan my daughter's breakfast.


geeths 2010-06-22 19:48:48


 Hi rmkarthik, mommyof2,

                    Thanks... Ya i too heard only good reviews about sankara.. thats why i desparately want my daughter to be admitted there.... Moreover, its CBSE with the option of taking hindi as a language than tamil from Std 1.... i think most of the other schools dont have this option.... Could u please tell me about the fee structure there.... Also the school timings.. whether its a full day or a half day for LKG?





rmkarthik 2010-06-23 09:43:57



   The fees Structure is Rs.10000/- (refundable deposit), tution fees=6000/-, admission fees 5000/- and book fees 650/-. For LKG, the school timings are from 9:30 to 12:30 as far as I know. Can anyone please confirm the timings?




geeths 2010-06-23 11:03:33


 Hi rmkarthik,

                 Thank u so much for the detailed reply... Just one more doubt, is the tution fee for a single term?
