Of the various co-curricular activities organsied by Apeejay International School, Greater Noida, it was the “citizenship awareness programme” that caught the attention of Swati Kain, mother of class 2 student Meera Balwaria. In an interview, Swati, a self-employed baker, tells us about the exposure that children are provided in the school. Edited excerpts:

What made you choose Apeejay International School, Greater Noida?

Meera was studying in another school before we moved to Greater Noida. We wanted a school that would be on par with the one she was studying in earlier. When we finally visited Apeejay Greater Noida, we were pleased with our interaction with the school principal. The other reason is the school is not a franchise but is owned and run by the Apeejay fraternity. So far, we have had a good experience.

In what ways has the school met your expectations?

Although there were some limitations in the online format, the teachers managed to organise virtual co-curricular activities for the students. They had a lovely “citizen awakening programme” that taught children how to be good human beings. That was something I really liked. As far as academics are concerned, the students are given worksheets every week to recap the lessons. Everything has been going fine for us.

Do you find the school’s modern teaching methods helpful like learning activities or audio-visual aid?

They are helpful compared to the old-fashioned way of teaching. Now that offline classes have started, I look forward to more practical-based learning.

Has the school been able to develop Meera’s interest in learning?

As a shy child, Meera was a little hesitant at first. But she gradually developed an interest in learning. I have heard positive feedback from teachers.

What kind of a relationship have you developed with the teachers?

Right from the beginning, I have been in regular touch with the teachers, who promptly respond and help us whenever required. We also have parent-teacher meetings at regular intervals.
