Mr. More,

 

hats off to you... You have said More with less...

My daughter studies in prep here and loves the school.... The environs, the philosophy, and the sheer radiance on Mungali Madam's face assures us that "all izz indeed well...."

The bus driver though is an insolent character, and it is really a pain interacting with him... Once the child joins, she is a captive of the bus service and has no option to change it....

That is one thing that should be borne in mind....

Perhaps like minded parents around aundh/baner/pashan should try to do some car-pooling?

Dear Ms. Gulati,

 

With due respect, I think these uniforms are more suitable for the Indian climate than ties, shirts/trousers etc. Sanskriti has an indian ethos, and it is shown in the uniform as well...

Hello Mr Pradeep,

  Your idea of car pooling for prep kids sounds good. My second one goes to prep and first one goes to 4th grade at Sanskriti.

Their timings are different.The bus for my first child looks airy and properly arranged whereas the tempo van tytpe for prep is little rough for these kids is what i believe.

I will still continue to send my daughter in that provided a good car pool arrangement works out.We are oin Bavdhan, near Marata Mandhir.

If you have framed any ideas already, do please let me know too.

Thanks.

Best Regards.

Ms R2iPune,

Our daughter Megha studies in prep - perhaps she knows your second child... Yes, the tempo does not inspire confidence, neither do the folks manning it....

To be frank, we have not thought through this deeply. If we have a couple more interested parents, perhaps we could use our own vehicles to drop the children. If parents are busy, perhaps a trusted driver can be arranged.... A trusted elder could accompany the children... Just thinking aloud for now...

Do give a shout if you have ideas. I hope that some other parents come up with ideas too...

regards

Pradeep

 Hello All

My wife and I are in the process of relocating from UK to India, we have chosen Sanskriti as we are convinced that this is the best school to fit our needs. We are flexible about where we stay (Kothrud/Baner/Aundh/Bavdhan?). Can anyone please provide feedback about where the school buses ply more extensively?

Regards

 Dear Baba744,

The confusion in due to names. What Sanskriti School calls Nursery is infact Jr. KG and your child will reach class 1 in 2 years (not 3 years)

And what is wrong with maids kids studying in the same school? Should they not have access to the same facilities as our kids have? 

Education is a Fundamental Right and btw in case you aren't aware - the government has introduced a bill to reserve 25% of all seats in private schools for underprivileged students.

My daughter is in Prep and we stay at Kothrud, I am interested in car pooling. Let me know if anyone is interested.

We got a chance to meet the principal a week before June 14th and expressed our concern abouyt the tempo traveller transport for prep kids.The principal immediately said that this has been the school's  concern too and is in the action item list as top priority. She also said that if parents could be little patient as nothing can bve done immediately but they will be working on it as soon as possible. I also put a word about parents in this forum trying to car pool and she said that might also have it's own drawbacks so to have a little patience and help the school get to work on the solution. We felt the principal was serious about this issue and was satifoied to hear that she has same concern too.She also suggested if we could share her thoughts on this issue to other parents of this forum and so this message from me.

Hello All,

My daughter Avni is in Nursery, division B, earlier she was in New India School(SSC), Kothrud, the reason for changing the school was CBSE board and most impt fair students & teacher ratio. Tomorrow is the 1st PTA meeting.

May be we use this platform to discuss our issues in future.

 Hello,

 

My Son, Kshitij is also in Nursery, Division B. Earlier he was in Sapling Nursery on Baner Road. We recently had Open Day right. I was happy with the feedback received from the Teacher. But, I was expecting that we will be shown all the activities done in the class to us. That was missing.

We can use this platform to discuss

Hi

I am Janhavi, I need to know when does admission process starts for Sanskriti school.

 

 

ajaykohli 2010-08-11 15:44:42

 

 I don't think they have a start date as of now. I will take admissions sooner rather than later to save myself of any fee increase or save myself from capacity full which happened last year

 

janhavi 2010-08-11 16:05:29

 

Thanks Ajay,

Will do the needful. I stay at Dahyri. I am bit confused. Will my kids go thru extensive travel time? Please let me know. My daughter is 2.5 yrs now.

 

 

ajaykohli 2010-08-11 17:22:00

 

I have no idea about time taken from Dhayari. Although I think they have a bus from there. We live near Baner. I guess you need to visit school and ask. You can also call them up. Mobile phone number is given on their website. sanskritischoolpune.org

 

janhavi 2010-08-11 17:25:26

 

Thanks Ajay for valuable input. I will call the school and get the added information.

 

Aviju 2010-08-20 12:05:03

 

Hi Janavi,

We stay in Warje, my daughter leaves at 9:15am and come back at 3:15pm....it does take long time. So you can just calculate accordingly.

 

 

Aviju 2010-08-20 12:09:08

 

hi,

yep even we were expecting they would show us some activities but anyways.....it was good. yeah we can share our experiences here.....good day!

Hello Friends,

     We are planning to move back to Pune from the US in 2011.  My son will be going to 3rd grade and we are strongly considering Sanskriti school.  I  notice that the school timings are till 2:30 pm.  I dont see any mention of any after school care or extended hours.  I will thankful if any working parents share how they manage after school care for their kids.

 

Regards,

Manjiri

Hi,

We admitted our daughter to Sanskriti because of the following reasons

     - low teacher student ratio

     - promise of an intimate mentor-mentee relationship between teacher and student akin to a guru shishya parampara

     - informal methods of teaching, which teach the child to think rather than teach facts at a fast pace.

While our daughter enjoys school and likes all the activities, we are concerned about the changing student/teacher ratios. It seems that there are around 40 students to a teach now in most classes. Is this true? Does anyone have any views on this?

Pradeep

Hi Pradeepck

My son janmejay studies in play group, when i discussed school while taking

his admission, they told me around 35 students will be in one class.

I think they are having two classes per grade like 1st , 2nd , 3rd.

if anybody knows better than me, please share your views.

 Hi Pradeep

My daughter is in prep as well, When i interacted with the teachers in the last PT meeting, I learnt that there are 2 sections for nursery and with 25-27 kids in each section so definitely not close to the 40 number.

We were assured by principal maam that this will not cross 30-33 students per class even at a later stage (ie in the higher classes) 

Our daughter seems to be enjoying school and so far we are quite happy with her growth

Vaidehi,

Yes, this was our impression too, but the situation changes as we move to standard first and above, I understand from parents of older children. Currently, the numbers are around 35 students per higher class - which is high compared to the earlier expectations.....

Could parents of bigger children in this forum enlighten us?

 

regards

Pradeep

 

pradeepck 2010-09-23 17:49:12

 

Parikshit,

Do you mean 35 students per section, or 35 students per class? For pre-school I think there are 2 sections of around 20 children each for each class whereas it is higher for higher classess...

But I am not sure...

 

regards

Pradeep

I had chosen this school after reading so many good reviews on this forum. But now I am not at all finding the school upto the expectations.

My daughter goes to higher standard. The students in each class are increasing at a rapid rate and they are not keeping their words of low teacher-student ratio. The result is the overcrowded buses in which kids are packed like anything.

While   taking admission I thought that the distance to the school will not matter but now I feel it really matters as communication between the school and parents is really very poor.

The another point of concern is inspite of having such a big infrastructure and playground the kids have no physical activities at school and all the playground etc are just to attract the parents to the school. No after school activities are present.

Last but not the least I was shocked when I came to know that the teacher of one of my friends son is forced to speak in Hindi in all periods as he came from outside and have poor HIndi. Personally I feel kids have many sources of learning Hindi and we are not sending them to school to learn to speak hindi.

To conclude I must say I am not happy with the school.

Hi Predeepck

I am not having any information reagarding sections. school told me there are maximum numbers of students allowed per class around 35, and i think still its less as compered to other schools. 

Hi Expertincn

My daughter goes to higher standard. The students in each class are increasing at a rapid rate and they are not keeping their words of low teacher-student ratio. The result is the overcrowded buses in which kids are packed like anything.

<As you said, they are increasing no of students per class. How many students are in your daughter’s class, and in which class she studies ? Are there 2 sections for your daughter class ? >

While   taking admission I thought that the distance to the school will not matter but now I feel it really matters as communication between the school and parents is really very poor.

<This is your individual view point. Regarding communication from school they are sending activities done report, per month by mail to playgroup, nursery, prep parents or  you can take prior appointment with class teacher and discuss with him/her about our daughter’s progress.>

The another point of concern is inspite of having such a big infrastructure and playground the kids have no physical activities at school and all the playground etc are just to attract the parents to the school. No after school activities are present.

<As my son is in playgroup I can not comment on this>

 Hi Baba7444,

I am glad that you are satisfied with the school. 

We as parents have only one aim in our life. Betterment and development of our children. But even if a single day your child comes to you and say I do not want to go to school ! You are half dead. The problems are not many and or not appear to grave but personally I feel there is some weakness in the running of the entire system.

Regards.

Sooryakanthi, Expertncn

I have been a parent at the school for the last 4.5 years (since they were in their older campus) and have a son (higher classes) and a daughter (Class 1) at the school

Being an old parent I try to interact regularly senior staff so think it pertinent to share a few facts. 

There is no section in the school with more than 32 kids (the ratio of 35 is a maximum possible ratio and does not exist in ANY class), I believe that Class 1 has the highest number of kids per section and there too there arent more than 32 kids per class.In the higher section the maximum is 25 kids in any class

It is your prerogative to have your opinion about your experience as a parent but suffice to say that the vast majority of the parents I have interacted with are very happy with the ethos and the progress of their kids.

NO school is perfect and even the Doon and Mayos of the world have their shortcomings and drawbacks what is important is to see is the right fit for your child and see the best possible option for your child.
