The Shri Ram School, Gurgaon - Point System for Nursery Admissions 2016

The Shri Ram School, Gurgaon has allocated 25 points to an essay under the head of "parents' response". Are they really serious??? This is not an essay writing competition, or may be it is!  (we published similar report long back in 2008 - as Delhi branch of this school ran similar "interaction/interview" thing at Vasant Kunj branch and seems like the administration really likes it a lot)

Here are other key points as setup by school -

  • 35 points for Staff/Sibling/Alumni.... that actually makes sense.
  • Max 20 points for neighbourhood
  • 5 points for Single Parent/Adopted Child/Special Needs
  • 15 points for first child

Last date for receiving all forms by 1600 hours on Thursday, 27th August, 2015

The Shri Ram Vatika School, New Delhi - Interaction at it's best

Adding to the pain that parents are going through, this school (read The Shri Ram Vatika School, New Delhi) has asked parents not to bring their child/ward to school during interaction.

Wondering how single monther, or say in the era of nucleus families where parents should be dropping child? Why these schools don't think on these rules, instructions practically. I hope the guards would not stop parents who will take their child along on interaction day.

I remeber the case of Birla Vidya Niketan, where they asked parents not to bring child along, but they did allow child enter to the interaction room. I remember, some parents left their 3+yrs, 4+ yrs olds, on benches outside the interaction rooms just to avoid that "not so happy look" of interviwers.

What are we heading to? Is this the face of new India? A developing country? Do we have rights to file PL against such foolish invitations/rules? Probably delhi Govt. is least interested in answering such questions. I am happy parent, I have filled 18 odd admissions forms all around south delhi and I trust Mr. Lovely as he assured to public that no child will be left this year...
