Hi all,

Even i too got the regret letter from PSBB .... My daughter is in Smiling KIds Play school. The admission in chinmaya vidhyalaya is closed for LKG , thy dnt have Pre Kg. So am going to wait for another year. This Nov only our nxt step of searching the CBSE schools for LKG. Hi Gitusai can u tell me exactly where in Virugambakkam Pon Vidhyashram located, have u chkd whether it has got the CBSE Affliation or not??? I heard  from my collegue that Pon Vidhyashram has the sam e syllabus as that of PSBB. Kindly People stay connected and let us know what u people have planned and where you gonna join ur Kids.


gitusai 2011-03-24 10:16:25


hello safreen,

it is located near virugumbakkam police station.it is a bungalow converted into a school.just pre-kg and lkg.there are a total of 240 students.i cud not enter the class rooms and chk the conditions there.jus saw thro the windows there.but it was more r less similar to the valsarvakkam branch.ground floor for pre-kg and first floor for lkg i suppose.yes it is affiliated to CBSE.how old is ur child?my son wl be 3 soon.so waiting for another year i dont think it wud b a gud choice for me.

if u want u can try the main school in valsarvakkam.may b there r some vacancies.bcos i was earlier told by an PSBB applicant that in the month of march u can always try there.i dont know how true it is?but neverthe less give it a try.


lovingmom 2011-03-24 10:39:47


I havent got regret from PSBB yet, but over phone I was told my number is not in selection list. So I have stopped waiting for the letter.

I had admitted my kid in Jawahar Vidyalaya just as a backup plan. Can anyone give me idea about the quality of education there? Since its a very old school, I would like to know whether new teaching methods are followed. Do they give opportuity for parents to interact with teachers?

I am worried whether I am taking the right step. Plz someone throw light on this..


KMSundaresh 2011-03-24 12:18:08

brahmavidhya 2011-03-24 13:12:47


Hi gitusai and safreen,


I enquired in valasarawakkam pon vidyashram for prekg.......there is no vacancy.........

however, I came to know there are vacancies in Kolappakkam Pon vidyashram but it is 6-7 km. from valasarawakkam( towards porur).


How about chinmaya vidyalaya in chinmaya nagar?


BrillAdith 2011-03-24 13:55:52



You could stil check with Vani Vidhayalya. My hubyy walked in and got admission consent subject to payment of fee the next day. However, since we stay in Koyambedu,  school bus does not have a route there.  I found the school to be good, decent infra, let us not fall for the big schools. Any good CBSE school is a good choice. I am regreting that i could not join him in Vani vidh. Desparate parents try in Vani vidhayala if you stay close by. Gud luck.


Could you guide me with good play schools in Chinmaya nagar, Anna nagar, close to Koyambedu with transdport facility....pls help.


brahmavidhya 2011-03-24 14:49:49


Dear brilladith,


Could u pl.tell me about the fee structure in Vani vidyalaya?


BrillAdith 2011-03-24 16:31:46



The fee structure works to Rs.21, 000 per annum excl van fee, if any.

Hi All,

I too fall under the category of getting "Regret" letter from PSBB.... So we have admitted our kid into Devi academy senior secondary school in valasaravakkam.....Please share your thoughts on this school... since two of my cousins(8th & 10th) are in this school i went ahead and got a seat for my kid.....


madhu25 2011-03-25 10:49:52


and for those who say they dint get any letter from PSBB, straight away reach the nearest post office.. they will be able to give you some correct info whether the letter reached them or not...


balakrishi 2011-03-25 10:55:29


@ gitusai,

Good luck and do share with us later as to how you find Ponvidhyashram



gitusai 2011-03-25 10:57:23


hi bramavidhya,safreen

this trend of starting pre-kg has cum up only in recent yrs.otherwise all CBSE schools start from lkg.and ur child has to b  4yrs wen they start goin to school according to central govt rules.

so  try pre-schools like Roots to Wings they hav many branches and van service.

we get only mixed reviews abt schools like chinmaya,vani,jawahar from people on the net .the best way wud be to visit these schools personally and meet the parents who r sending their wards there.in my area mostly kids go to PSBB,Pon vidyashram,few to chettinad since it is in R.A puram.very few to jawahar and chinmaya.since PSBB is the 1st choice for all the parents.wen rejected they send them to the second ring of schools.


balakrishi 2011-03-25 11:05:09


@ PoojitParent,

Thanks so much for the list. i stay in KK Nagar and find Bhavan's and schools in Chetpet and Kilpauk and all quite far....

However, all the schools u have mentioned seem to be very good from whta I heard especially Bhavan's. Again getting a seat is very difficult,...we have to go in for recommendation I think.

We are also considering HArishree Vidyalayam in RA puram. Its 5kms from our place.

@ All,

Pls do update details of other schools you have in mind...





gitusai 2011-03-25 11:10:28


thanks balakrishi.

the valsarvakkam branch is gud.but since it is in a low-lying area,2yrs ago the school was surrounded by water during the rainy season and school was shut for many days.but now  they hav improved i think.but i am  not aware of the virgumbakkam branch facilities.i am not worried abt the teaching part.that wud b gud.but  toilet and playground facilities.how old is ur child and what hav u planned?


safreen 2011-03-25 11:14:05


Hi Gitusai / Brahmividhya

Hello everyone,

For those to know about chinmaya vidhyalaya in valasarwakkam, it is one of the best in Education, communication skills and other aspects as well. My sis n law's son is studying I std now and what they suggest is its extremely well disciplined school. Even i got the regret letter from psbb, but i hav put my son in Ponvidhyashram velacherry.

Pls let me know if any body has placed their kids in Ponvidhyashram velacherry. As per my understanding, this school seems to be gud in teaching. I visited the wash rooms in the school during the interview and its been maintained well. But the school has till 6th std as of now and its getting extended.




balakrishi 2011-03-25 17:24:38


As of now I have Harishree Vidyalayam and Chinmaya Vidyalaya on my list....Will add more schools for next year based on inputs from you all...

@ Revathy,

Are you talking about Chinmaya Vidyalaya in Virugambakkam? Can u share more details about the school if possible? The infrastructure, student-teacher ratio, the facilities they have, attitude of the teachers and so on...



Revaty 2011-03-28 08:15:22


Ys balakrishi...My sis in law has put her son  in chinmaya virugambakkam. Infrastructure is good and the teaching style is also gud. They do give project work for the kids but really dont pressure them. He s studying thr for the past three years from lkg. I have not heard any major problm from my sis in law. will let u know on the student teacher ratio and few more details by today.


vima 2011-09-12 19:06:46



My son is also eligible for LKG admn next academic year and I also live in ewst mambalam area.  Ca you please let me know the admission procedure for National Public School, whether any recommendation is required etc?
