Do they have a playground??
whether all the branches of velammal newgen has till class 6th only ? will they upgrade beyond that ?
My Son Age At 3.5 . My home is there near Guindy. Maddippakkam its to long distance 5.2 Km . They can give me a applications and admission. Kindly check this update.
Somebody telling in velammal they are asking to pay money for tablet phone and wifi connections for that.From which standard they are asking to buy tab?
If they don't have a playground, then it is not possible to upgrade as per government regulations and affiliation requirements......
Playground - As of now they are constructing so no clue on the ground. Put we can expect a small playground
Tab - I believe it is from 1st Std. It costing Rs.6000 and Wifi+App Charges - 3000
As of now they start upto 6th grade then it will grow I hope.
Anybody paid fees for madipakkam vellamal?
I am planning to pay fees for my kid .
Is construction started in madipakkam vellamal?
I Paid 3 weeks before... they promised to build before June. But you can make a visit to school site.
I have created a watsapp group for prekg. Please send me your contact number via inbox in parentree.
No construction has started at the site.
Site is approximately 10 grounds of area (approx 24,000 sq ft) and can easily accommodate infrastructure up to Higher Secondary. The compounds wall is quite high (about 10 feet), so looking from outside it looks like construction activity is happening but the construction is actually happening on a plot next to this ground for another school named Marg Vidhyalaya.
Both the campuses compound walls looks the same (I guess that the land was bought from same land owner) so easily giving the impression that construction is happening on the part of Velammal whereas the activity is happening or Marg side.
The first problem is there is no construction happening.
The second problem is I am not sure if they will be able to put up a decent infrastructure by June 2017.
The third problem is that the parents of kids of velammal medavakkam, started in a similar manner I think last year, have held protests saying there the infrastructure of medavakkam school is very poor and not commensurate with the hefty donations they had paid.
If they have only 10 grounds then they cannot upgrade to higher grades. CBSE mandates a minimum land area of 1 acre to apply for affiliation which includes a open playground!!!!
better to avoid this school
I have admitted my son in Jr kg.is there any group active to know abt school status
The construction has started, am put up near to the site. Markings has been done. Speedy process is going, that i can say.
Medavakkam could be a lesson. so i think for us infrastructure would not be a problem.
I got admission for my twins in madipakkam velammal new gen school before 2 weeks. Was actually worried about school after hearing medvakkam protest. Its really good to know tat that atleast by now they have started construction.
I have created a watsapp group for velammal madipakkam. Could you please send me your number whoever put your kid in madipakkam in whatever class it may be. Let's be informed of updates about construction until school opens. If any active group is there please include me.
The principal told that the area is 2.2 acres. But introducing tablet in 1st std makes me to think whether to join in this school or not. I stay in just next street, so thought i'll put my kid here, but am still yet to finalize. Not made the payment yet, but having this as a backup plan. The NewGen schools they've started for money. My niece is studying in velammal anna nagar and it's good. Not sure about these NewGen schools.
Any email Id where number can be sent to join group?
ya sure. you just msg to my number 9500189077. i will add you in the group.
I went to visit the construction status today. They just made some marking and when I asked how much is area , they said it is 2 acres. 2 acres (36 Grounds) I don't think so it is 36 grounds just like that they are saying, maximum it will be 1 acre.
Also they said construction will be over in next 2 months. not even foundation laid.
My suggestion to parents...I also got 1st Std admission in this school. It is near to my home that's the only reason I put my kid here.
So until 5th this school is good. Again... if they are not performing good and not doing as promised we can just change the school as we have lot of choices now. So parents don't be panic or worried.
For Any grievances we need to address together to make it strong. Otherwise they will take it for granted.
All the parents who got admission please call the admission team or principal and enquire on the construction status. so that they will start it immediately.
Also if the construction is In progress when school is running means then it is not safety for our Kids.
I already running an active parents group for madipakkam- Velammal . Please email your number to firstname.lastname@example.org I will add to the group.
my number is 8056159605. pls add me to the group
anyone recently visited d site?
Today only gone there, some digging process for foundation was going on.
The Medavakkam branch parents protested for below reasons
1) No AC classrooms
2) Uniform was very low quality
3) There was a increase in fees so they asked to revise.
We need to get the list of facilities they are going to offer in the school.
draish - added you to the group
Hi any body got admission in 5 the standard pls tell fees details thanks
