‘Apeejay Svran Global, Faridabad conducts many events to make grandparents feel special’

Ms. Gyan Devi, grandmother of students, Eeshita and Shaurya loves visiting the school. In an interview, she shares how teachers encourage her grandchildren to do their best.



A homemaker, Ms. Gyan Devi spends most of her time with her grandchildren, Eeshita and Shaurya at home. Both of them are students at Apeejay Svran Global School, studying in classes 4 and 9, respectively. While the school is at a convenient distance from their residence in Faridabad, Ms. Gyan Devi’s favourite time is the summer vacations, when she visits the nearby park with them. Read On, as she shares more:

Have you always lived in Faridabad?

We moved here in 2009, shortly after my son, Mr. Paramjit Dhankar, Regional Sales Head at Tech Mahindra and daughter-in-law, Saroj Dhankar moved to Australia with Shaurya. They returned two years ago, and now we are a family of six – Eeshita being the youngest member.

How did you come to know about Apeejay schools in Faridabad?

Shaurya was studying in Apeejay before moving to Australia. Once the family returned to India, we again enrolled him in the same school. Eeshita too studies there now. Both of them are doing great, thanks to the teachers at Apeejay! 

Were you around for their online classes during Covid-19?

Yes. I used to watch them learn in the online classes. I enjoyed it very much! Eeshita was born here in India. But, she was brought up in Australia and spent her foundational years there. Due to that, she isn’t very fluent in Hindi. However, Kanchan Ma’am, the Hindi teacher at Apeejay took out time for her during Covid-19 to ensure that she is able to grasp the language better. Eeshita has now learnt to converse in Hindi.

Similarly, for Shaurya too, teachers are doing their best. His performance has improved in many subjects. Teachers are taking exceptional care of them at the school.

Have you got a chance to visit the school?

Yes, and I loved it! The school gives immense respect to all the grandparents. I felt very privileged to be called in their programmes and events. I am in awe of the ex-Principal, Ms. Purnima Vohra Ma’am, she is a very simple and down-to-earth person.

Your message to fellow parents/grandparents?

I strongly recommend Apeejay! Go for it.
