Smriti Sharma (38) working with Teleperformance Global Services, is the proud mother of Reyansh Sharma (9) and Srinika Sharma (7). They are students of Apeejay School, Faridabad, in class 5 and class 3 respectively. The children live with their grandmother and parents in Sector-14, Faridabad.

How is Reyansh as a child?
Reyansh is just 9 years old but is already good at writing. Even as his handwriting isn’t great, he writes really well. He has that bent of mind of speaking and articulating what he is going through. As far as his hobbies are concerned, he likes to play chess and is fond of outdoor sports as well. He enjoys both cricket and football. He had joined the tennis academy and was doing really well, but due to the pandemic, he was compelled to stay at home. In academics, he is doing okay. He is among the top three or four students of his class.

Tell us a little about Srinika?
My daughter Srinika is a student of class 3. She is the pampered child in the family. She likes to do a lot of craft and drawing. She keeps herself busy with these activities. She enjoys dancing and as a hobby she is taking dance classes.

Why did you choose Apeejay School, Faridabad?
I chose Apeejay because my husband is also an alumni. At present, he is working with HCL Technologies. The other reason was the formidable reputation of Apeejay built over years. When Reyansh got his admission at Apeejay, the school was doing really well.  Whether it is infrastructure, teachers, academics or extra-curricular activities, all of these were top-class. So, we decided to choose the same school for Srinika as well.

Are co-curricular activities at the school helping your children improve their skills?
There is a balanced approach that Apeejay is taking right now. They are focusing on both academics and co-curricular activities. When students are part of a school which encourages activities, their interests definitely develop and they enjoy it.  

Any personality traits that your kids have developed at school?
Of course, Apeejay is really good at developing leadership skills. The teachers impart excellent leadership skills to the children. They give good exposure of speaking on the stage. Even though the classes are online these days, whether its thoughts, news or anything relevant, Apeejay still has a lot of assemblies where the students go forward and speak.

As a parent, our experience at Apeejay has been good. The principal and the teachers are there to help us.
