woww Meeti.. you did ask me for VK travels number and i have given it right in this thread.. see above :).  so yes, we go by VK travels and you have indeed seen my daughter. oh she slept in the van itself?  poor thing.  school seems to be tiring her out.

karthik.. thank you for those updates. i can kind of figure out the proceedings by checking her school bag. but it helps to get information from other parents like you.  i am yet to cover those books with brown sheets.  i liked those books a lot.. esp the one on activities.  i felt like reading along with my kid at once, but no time for this poor mommy !


Meeti 2010-07-06 14:57:59


Yes...when she saw me the first day in van , she just said "Amma" ...didn't complete her sentence but i sensed that she wants to go to Amma.....felt sorry....and then after sometime slept off...:-)....

where are you working? which play school is your daighter going after school?

My son also liked the school very much...but today looks like he is down with fever...:-( when he came back....

when i ask him what was taught in school he also keeps mum....i just know that some rhymes were sung...they had tiffin and then teacher said time to go to mummy :-)


mommyof2 2010-07-06 15:46:30


Meeti.. i hope you dont mind keeping the answers to those specific questions when we do a 1:1.  hope you understand.

you got me feel bad for my daughter.  "time to go to mummy" isn't probably a good one for all kids.  my kid talks about ABC being taught and thats clear from she says.  then rhymes, then snacks, then playtime i guess. 

Adithya is down with fever?  take care.. do you work?  we should talk/meet sometime :)

My son is Adithya Varma. Yes got the books. But did the school keep it back with them. Got just 3 textbooks for maths, english & activity.


Meeti 2010-07-08 13:50:44


Anushree, is your son in LKG B? Coz my son was saying that there is another Aditya in the same class and his name is Aditya bhrama...probably he would have heard Varma wrongly :-)....


add 2010-07-08 13:56:48


He is in sec A. U were in the van on the 2nd day right. U came with another friend of urs right, who stay in ur flat


add 2010-07-08 13:58:19


There is another Aditya in Section A.


Gayathrisury 2010-07-08 15:18:36


hi all,

cud anyone tell the admission process there??? when applns. are issued & the mode etc..  I want to put my son there. Right now he is in Bamboola. Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated. pl. help.


thnx, Gayathri


Meeti 2010-07-09 10:42:08


I did come in the van the second day, but i did not have any friends from the same flat :-)


mommyof2 2010-07-09 11:01:01


anusree.. you probably are talking about another lady whose daughter is in sankara LKG C and has another boy coming from the same flat from LKG B

btw, do you think we should all talk to the teachers sometime to make communication better until at least the kids can communicate what is relevant to us?  am feeling handicapped not understanding whats going on in the class, and it would differ between sections.

Gayathri - last year 2009 Dec/jan is the timeframe we were given the application form and the interviews/admission happened in march this year.  this will differ from year to year.. you may need to keep in touch with the school office from sep/oct timeframe to get the info.


Meeti 2010-07-09 14:15:32


I too feel the communication could improve. We cant always go to pick them up from school and talk to the teacher in person

Everyday I check the dairy. But nothing written. Do they have any PTA meetings. When can we meet the teacher.


mommyof2 2010-07-12 13:22:09


Meeti, Anusree -

Its written outside that the teachers can be met on any working saturday.  last week was 2nd week, so assuming it wouldn't work i didn't go. else i think we can go on another saturday if week days is not possible.  Not sure how frequent the PTAs are, but there is one.  i will check with some other moms and get back.  but the teachers do check the diary every day coz my daughter keeps repeating how her teachers asks her to bring the diary from her bag... dont know what they do with it.

Meeti 2010-07-26 12:22:10


Vidya, did you get a chance to meet the teacher over the weekend?


mommyof2 2010-07-27 17:20:16


no meeti.. i did not.  have been caught up in various things that this doesn't fall into the priority.  did you have a chance to meet them?


karti 2010-08-05 23:42:34


can someone tell me the age criteria that was asked for during admission


mommyof2 2010-09-30 13:51:21


Meeti.. i want to talk to you.  how do i reach you?  can you pls send me a private note on ur email?


Sulatha 2010-10-24 16:24:11



nice to read through this discussion.  I need to be looking for admissions for the next batch.  Can you give me a fair review abt Sankara sch.  Heard they discriminate between children.  Is this true??  

I can feel that the managament is not approachable.  What is the teacher student ratio.  There is some plus & minus with each school.  so much of false hype created by different schools, not able to make a firm decision. 

Pls share your views.



Lakme 2010-11-10 18:02:08


I also wish to put my daughter for UKG in sankara

nice to see your discussions right from day one of the school. Kindly share ur views about the coverage of academics, extra curricular activities

do they communicate with children only in english?

what is the student teachers ratio and how far is the cleaniness and discipline

kindly help me out of my doubts.



srividhya 2010-11-16 07:56:26




both my daughter and son is in Sankara. My daughter is in 5th std, son is in UKG.

Lakme, getting admision in between class is slightly dificult, come and approach the school office and give a request letter.


rmkarthik 2011-06-20 16:19:12


Hi vidya

  My son has moved to UKG C. In which class is your daughter?





Lakme 2011-06-20 20:02:42


hi all,

can anyone solve my doubts on sankara

what is the student teachers ratio ?

how much do they concentrate on extra curricular?

do they stress students much on academics?

do they teach good disciplines to the students?

do they give good exposure or coverage  to students?

It would be of great help if anyone help me out from my doubts so that i can approach the school to admit my daughter for UKG even thou the admissions would have closed by this time
