Not just academics, Apeejay School Faridabad ensures children’s overall personality development, says Anjali Pundir whose sons Sattvik and Yashwardhan are studying in the school, in classes 2 and nursery respectively. From being a shy boy when he entered school, Sattvik has developed into a confident individual; Yashwardhan is also gradually shedding inhibitions while progressing in his journey of learning. In an interview, the mother tells us more about her “wonderful” experience with Apeejay. Edited excerpts:

Why did you pick Apeejay Faridabad Sector 15?

I visited a lot of schools around the time of my elder son’s admission. Among all, Apeejay Faridabad Sector 15 was the one that appealed to me the most because of its environment, with a perfect blend of traditional and modern values. That is what encouraged me to enroll my son there in nursery. Besides, the school is not overcrowded with too many students—the teacher-student ratio is good.

Since Sattvik has been in the school for some years now, what would you have to say about your overall experience?

My experience with Sattvik has been wonderful, which is why we enrolled our younger one in the school too. I am very happy with the way Sattivik is improving with each passing day. While he was always a good and active learner, he used to be very shy in front of other people. What I love about Apeejay is that they organise activities every week that give children a platform to speak in front of people. This exercise has had a positive impact on Sattivik and has boosted his confidence.

What is your feedback on the way teachers conduct classes?

We got firsthand experience of that during the online classes held amid the pandemic. We as parents got to learn a lot about how to assist kids in learning. Through interesting storytelling sessions and learning activities, teachers make the learning process quite fun for kids. They did an excellent job in honing children’s reading skills—they gave every student the opportunity to read aloud in class.

Are all students in the class equally encouraged by the teachers?

Yes, in fact, the teachers try to encourage those students who lag behind. No student is made to feel like they are being left out. I have personally seen this during the online classes.

Has Sattvik developed an interest in studies? How did teachers help?

Sattvik obeys instructions and completes his assignments on time. If a child is enjoying his classes and his concepts are clear, he or she will automatically develop an interest in studying. The school, in this case, has a big role to play.

Does the school inculcate moral values in children?

Sattvik is a well-mannered child. He is always polite and respectful towards others. This is something I have seen in his classmates as well which goes to show how well they are being groomed.

Yashwardhan has just begun his journey at Apeejay. Has he settled in?

My younger son loves going to school. In the initial days, he hardly spoke but within a few days, he picked up new sentences and words like “please” or “excuse me” and has been using them in his day-to-day conversations. He has started participating in class activities.
