I too Got in Sherwood by God' s grace I believe, after getting in Asan.I decided for Sherwood as money was not my criteria.Giving Quality education is the minimum I can give to my kid.Further the nearby distance would work as daily comfort for me in return of the big 85k payment made.

DAV Gopalapuram was my first choice and next choice was Sherwood among all the cbse schools.I must thank God that my second choice has worked atleast if not the first.DAV Gopalapuram admission is still a mistery to be solved.What kind of RTI could we file-it will come back as sibling quota ,management quota etc.

I collected the original birth certificate from Asan.

It was a tiring exercise filling forms/kid interviews in so many schools and nowhere the name turning up in the selected list despite of good interivews of the kid.Then only I learnt that it's money and influence that is working.

Asan is an ok school-not bad.One thing I came to know about Asan that most of the teachers are Malyalam speaking.-So it's not a mix and match of culture in my view.I expected the scool to be more neat and tidy after visiting.

The environment at Asan is not that great is what I heard from others.My neighbour strongly advised me keep him at home and not send to Asan.

I further got afraid when I saw the person next to me filled occupation as scooter mechanic.Maybe the kid don't get a good environment at home and bring his behaviour to the school too.Perhaps a lot depends on the teachers too.It's just a thought that comes to my mind and not that I discriminate.In fact I'm thankful to Asan as it was the first school who selected my kid.But at the same time I felt highly offended too as they kept our kid's original birth certificate.I felt like asking them to cancel the admission seat and give the certificate back.Keeping original certificate is an offence that too without any receipt for it.

 Hi Sin,

For our daughter, my first preference is Maharishi

We attendeed interview in Bhawans, Maharishi, Chinmaya but not selected.

In Asan they have selected our kid (on 05th Jan)  - me too, Thanks to Asan, this is the first school they have selected our kid in the interview. They asked us to pay the fees within 2 days and we have to submit the original certificates, we didn't paid initially and didn't submit the documents, at last some 2 days before only we made the payment alone at Asan not certificates. (due to last date of payment they have specified 07th Feb in App Form and result from Sherwood got delayed).

Now we got the admission in Sherwood, money is not an matter, We forgot the amount which we paid in Asan, planned to join our daughter in Sherwood to provide her High Standard Education (Quality of Education).

Where you are located?  We are located in Egmore, for us both schools are near to us.

Sin, do u know about the fees in Sherwood what is the amount, they told we have to pay the fees only on June, i don't know how much..

Also can you pls confirm when we have to pay 85k in Sherwood, i hope it is 17th Feb and not today.. am i right? Please confirm.

Sivathi.

@sivathi : I vote for Sherwood, though a small campus, no extra curricular, Studies wise good.

BTW, Are u malayali? How much did u pay to Asan? Do they refund the money? If everything you can. Go ahead with sherwood.

@sin : I agree with your points. All the best.

 

 

sowmiyaa 2011-02-10 11:47:03

 

@Sin : Good decision. All the best for your kid.

 

sivathi 2011-02-10 11:52:23

 

Soumiyaa,

I am not Malayali, i am from South Tamilnadu (Tuticorin).

Sin, do u know about the fees in Sherwood what is the amount, they told we have to pay the fees only on June, i don't know how much..

Also can you pls confirm when we have to pay 85k in Sherwood, i hope it is 17th Feb and not today.. am i right? Please confirm.

@sowmiyaa : Thank you for your wishes and also for hosting this blog.Wish  you too good schooling experience with SBOA Anna Nagar.How many km is it from your home.We should somehowhow keep talking once in a while somewhere.I don't use facebook etc... Let me know

@Sivathi: The fees is 4700 for a term. you have to pay admisssion fees of 5000.The total will come to 23000 per year.It is 10000 less than pssb.For higher classes the fees comes to 27000 per year around at present.Additionaly you can claim the donation for a tax benefit under 80g while filing IT return.It's nothing happening under the table.

 Sin,

Have you got the refund from Asan ??

 

sin 2011-02-10 18:32:07

 

@Sivathi: I never paid to Asan. Even admission had closed when I had applied.You should get the fees as refund atleast.

They have decided in Feb 2011 month to start a new section  -So they called me for the interview and instant selection and certificate deposited without asking us /our permission.

Do you know anyone who had agreed to pay 85k and has not received the call to deposit the money.

It looks to me they have called everyone to deposit who had agreed to pay 85k.

Did get the school uniform?

What about the admission fees.When do we need to pay to Sherwood?

 

sivathi 2011-03-02 17:58:14

 

No information about Uniform, they told me that they will inform us through SMS or Phone Call, but i don't know when they will do? Fee amount also they didn't tell clearly, Fees payable only on June. Its seems very slow process in admission compare to other schools.

Sheila Sherwood Hall is very good school...you can go for it...teachers are very good and they take good care of the students...just go in the morning and check with parents whose kids are studying in the school ...ultimately you can get feedback from them....

 

 

sin 2011-08-29 17:06:23

 

Hello Sheila, My initial impression of the school was the same as yours.Thankfully I find them to have only exceeded my expectations.The school is good in terms of quality of education,hygiene/cleanliness,teachers are good and co-operaive to parents.Their teaching methodologies are impressive so far.For higher classes they use technology too I believe.If Don Bosco is suited to you definitely this location also would be suitable.What exactly were you conveyed on your visit.Let me know of any further help/guidance needed.
