I have no idea why everyone is sharing their email id in wants make private conversation which defeats the purpose of this public forum.. Why can't it be discussed here so that everyone benefits or the idea being that it should not.
I've also applied for grade 2, for my twins - son and daughter. We are awaiting updates. What's your orientation dates?
Have not got the confirmation dates. Hoping that they will notify us by next week.
We haven't got any update on orientation dates
I got the orientation invite. Mine is scheduled for 26th n 27 th of this month.
Hi, anyone applied from UK? Any idea if IHS is conducting assessments/orientation online (how it used to be in past)? Has anyone received online orientation dates?
You have applied for which class?
I m seeking admission for STD 2
Has anyone got paid accommodation inside the ashram for the orientation programme. I got a mail saying it's not available. I m wondering where to stay as the ashram is around 30 km from the city. Any suggestions from those who have been there already.
Hi All, is there any parent from Australia who are sending the kids to Isha home school?
I would like to connect.
I never stayed outside the ashram but there are no decent places close to it. Best bet is to search for hotels in Coimbatore city as per your preference and take a taxi to the ashram the following morning. Depending on the hotel location, ride could take 1-2 hours.
Would you be able to share your experience. We have orientation dates on Jan 7 and 8th for our twins (Grade 2). Same boat with accommodation as i got similar email about no availability. Any suggestions for which hotels might be the best in Coimbatore to book.
Shankar we couldnt get accomodation in the ashram so we booked a room in a hotel called karunya guest house. Looks decent. https://vijayparkinn.in/siruvani-nature-resort/. Those looking for a stay near by can check this out.
Our Son studies in IHS. we are from Melbourne
Can u share your experience of IHS. In which class is your son sir
Hi Thanks. Great to know you are in Melbourne and your son studies in IHS. I am planning to apply next year. While I understand details on how IHS works by discussion with few parents from US/ Canada , have not come across a parent from Melbourne so far. It would be great if I can connect with you to discuss some details on how this works. Will send you a private message if you are ok with it. Thanks
I just finished the orientation programme for my son today. The first day kids were occupied with 2 sessions of activities like colouring,building blocks, playing, maths quiz,etc. For lunch it was combined with IHS junior school students. Their meals are very simple. Soaked ground nuts, sprouted green gram, dal etc. Second day there was a 20 min interview for parents with the child on why they want Isha home school. The child was asked y he wants to be here despite the distance of staying away from home, what he likes n dislikes about Isha if any. They want to know how sure parents are about the Isha way of schooling it's highs n lows n what expectations they have from the organisation. Overall it was a beautiful experience for us. They students there were very modest, looked happy n of course brimming with energy. I did no preparation for myself nor my son. It was spontaneous genuine answers through out. I couldn't be more happier if my child were to be selected.
All the best.
