My son is 4.4yrs old and is studying in Hutchings school, pune.
We have currently shifted to hadapsar area and hence distance from home
to school has increased. Also the school bus does not come this far
and private vans are very unreliable in terms of safety.
We do have Bishops school, undri close to our home but we are not much aware of
how the school is in terms quality of education, teachers, discipline among students, etc.
Hence, I am really confused whether I should try shifting my son to that school or carry on with hutchings.
Please advise me in this regard as I am really confused.
I don't think shifting the school would be a wise idea as, if u try for Bishop's, ur son will lose 1 year coz of weird age criteria at Bishop's. As of 1st June 2014, your son should have completed 5yrs for admission to UKG, else he will have to repeat LKG(Nursery in case of Hutchings).
Also 70% students commute to school by private vans. You can do a background check of the cab operator and also check the facilities in the van before selecting.
Hope this helps.
Hi i am also staying in Hadapsar
my son is in hutching. we face some problem initially for transport but now every thing is Ok. only thing is that my son had bit longer journy.
I suggest you try for Bishop. it will be always better to have school near home
Even if you dont get admissio to Bishop, transport is not that big problem for hutching school.
Thanks a lot for your suggestions.
But one thing that still confuses me is that even if I think of the Bishop's option, is it worth a change as far as quality of school is concerned.
I mean, is the school having good quality teachers, education, discpline among the students, etc. or is Hutchings a better option?
Quality of both schools in terms of discipline, education and teachers is good. Bishop's Undri is new compared to Hutchings but Bishop's in itself is a reputed institution because of the Camp school which is over 150 years old.
Can anyone provide the reliable cab/van or bus transport number for hutchings school pune?
