 Hi Udaync,

Why to hold on only for one school. 

Now I feel for us (as a parents of my childrens) it is the time to change our view about schools and thinking about schools. Isn't it friends?





dpardesh 2013-02-06 12:02:41


Admission is also on hold in St Mary so its not just hutchings...


Any updates from hutchings @udaync


mustufa 2013-02-06 13:51:14



I know that admission for St. Mary is also on hold but the way both school treat parents is not good. Do you think they will give you something good unless u r very special for them.




udaync 2013-02-06 14:40:05



I did go to the school this Monday and managed to meet the lady at the counter. What she told me is that the admissions are put on hold because of the RTE Act. The admission process will resume only when they 'remove this' else the admission will not happen.

Not sure if they are asking to remove the RTE Act or something else? But after my discussion with her, it seems that they must have goofed up with the 25% reservations under RTE and must be working in a damage control mode. If they don't give admissions this year... not sure what will they do to one empty batch....???

 Hi Udaync,

I am worried. If this is the case then forget about school but for our childrens we will be really in trouble. That's why I have fear about that why school is not responding well. Hutchings has not yet put anything in their web site while St. Mary has written it in their web site. Whatever the decision school takes (ie., to go with RTE act or not to go with RTE act) as per my understanding at last only we have to suffer. What do you think my dear friends?




udaync 2013-02-06 16:19:19


I agree with you Mustufa - at the end its we who will ONLY suffer. But, looking at the news these days, the Education Authorities will defenitely not let these school go just like that. Since my visit to the school on Monday, I don't know what to do.. wait and watch or go for any private school (paying hefty amount for no reason)


mustufa 2013-02-06 18:03:17


 My perspective for private school is somehow now changed. If they are charging money they they also provide good environment and stuff to our childs. Say for instance Dastur school is taking 600/- Rs. for computer education and other private school is charging more than that. But with this they provide good furniture, instructor and curriculum. For instance, child studying computer subject in Dastur school has not good enough than other private school. But it depends upon private school management also

So we need to find out such school which provide us worth to our fees. If you are satisfied and management justify their fees charges then it is good to go for it.

What is your opinion.




amitwagh 2013-02-06 18:17:44


 I dont find how it will be difficult for them to run empty batch next year they can give admission for both pre nursary and nursery. we parents are only at receiving end 


dpardesh 2013-02-07 11:38:16



do you know any school specially in pune which really provides the infrastrucutre and quality education which is worth the fees they take, i know some school have increased their fees from 30k to 80k this year having same infra as last year then why there is increase in fees.

its we the parents who will suffer from all this.....

anyways any updates from Dastur, hw about rosary any review


mustufa 2013-02-07 12:27:33


 Hi dpardesh,

I have visited Kothari National School and inquired about the same query, 

I raised the same question to Kothari School management and School authority said that this year they have not increased in Tution fees (ie., 2700/- per month for pre-primary, 2900/- per month for primary and 3400/- per month for higher section), but yes they have introduced Club activity and Outdoor activity ( and for which they are charging 1000/- per month (which is part of Annual Fees and included in ONE TIME PAYMENT of 49500/-).

This needs to be paid every year. So if I consider this school as my destination then  I have to pay (Rs. 2900/- as Tution fees + 1000/- as Club activity + Transport which is not applicable in my case). This leads to me that if my child is getting all this things at one place then I need not have to pay outsite (ie., during her summer vacation).

Let me know your view on this and any questions.

Hi All,

Yesterday i and my friend got a rejection from Sardar Dastur school. I dont know what the criteria is but on their website its written as Regret, not shortlisted. Its the same for even for one of my friend.

Any news from Hutchings school?




Swar1 2013-02-15 16:13:43


no News from Hutchings school they just say to check website... :(


SNB 2013-02-15 16:53:42


By March end all admission process should be finish I guess.Because April and May there will be summer vacations.

According to this,there should be some updates from Hutchings in next 2 weeks means the dates of interview and all.Otherwise really difficult to guess ultimately  what they are going to do with admission process.


dpardesh 2013-02-15 17:54:56


Hi All,

I stay within 3KM from school but i missed the date to pay Rs 300 as processing fees.

anyways dastur was not in my shortlist...i m keeping finger cross for Hutchings.


mrShah 2013-02-18 15:23:01


 Hi Swar1,

What is going on with hutchings ? I am still waitng for my application results ? do you have any idea by when interview dates will come out ? I heard that they have 6k application for 150 seats for pre nursery ? is it true ? Also if some one can tell me about st.Mary's age criteria ?


dpardesh 2013-02-18 16:40:17


Hi msShah admission process is over in sms

Our Pre-Nursery is only for girls. In order to be eligible, your child should have been born on or before 30th November 2010 and must have completed two years six months of age by 1st June 2013. (i.e. between 30 and 42 months of age as on 1st June 2013


mrShah 2013-02-19 00:02:24


 Hay dpardesh,


Thanx for the information.. can i ask you for some more information ?

i heard that st. Mary's is only girls school through out and not co -ad ? is that true ?  and also do you know anything about the school called Mahavir pratishtan in selisbery park ?

what about hutchings ? when are they going to start any idea ?


mrShah 2013-02-19 00:06:40


 Hi all,


Any school you can suggest for my 2.9 ( by June 2013)  year old girl ? i only find hutchings comes under the criteria.. I wanted co-ad schools near by MG road.


dpardesh 2013-02-20 11:46:46


Ongoing nursery admission process will remain unaffected: Delhi High Court


dpardesh 2013-02-20 11:48:53


Hi mrShah yes St Mary is not co-ed school although they have both boys and girls school but with a boundary wall between them..


near MG road for coed u can try hutchings (admission already over), dastur, bhojwani, Rosary (recently strated ICSE).

U can also try St. Helenas but its girls school


AjaySarda 2013-02-21 12:35:57


Visited yesterday to Hutchings and St. Mary's.. they just ask to check on th ewebsite. soon there will be an update.

But i beleive that both the schools are old and the compedition is tough.


puneetgr8 2013-02-22 10:10:33


Hi Ajay,

The problem is that they have been giving the same answer since Jan..Dunno what is their problem..They probably want to avoid the 25% RTE reservations but that is just not possible.


Swar1 2013-02-22 10:30:33


Puneet i guess HC has given it decission... pls check and advise...
