My children have learnt etiquette and good values early in their life thanks to Apeejay: Niharika Seth

Niharika Seth (33) is an Assistant Professor at the Guru Nanak Dev University while her husband Ribhu Seth runs a jewellery business.  Both their children — Viraj (7) and Shaurya (3) – study at Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld, Model Town, Jalandhar. In an interview, Seth talks about the life lessons her children have picked up at school.

Why did you choose Apeejay over other Schools?

My husband is an Apeejay alumnus. He studied at the Mahavir Marg branch and has made great strides in his professional life. It was pre-decided that we will send our kids to Apeejay as the school provides children an opportunity to study from Rhythms to Class 12 and in the future we have a lot of options for higher studies at the various colleges that Apeejay has. We wanted our children to have a great bond with the teachers. Unnecessarily we don’t want them to uproot them from this bond and start afresh in some other school.

Apart from our personal belief, the teachers here are well-experienced. The infrastructure is well maintained and is sufficient for the children. Also, Apeejay is one of the renowned schools in the city.

Tell us a little more about your children?

Viraj is an intelligent and confident child. He is very good at speaking. We have noticed good leadership skills in him.

Shaurya hasn’t been to the school in the physical form yet. For him school is just online classes. He is a little shy as compared to Viraj. The teachers are making efforts that the child should speak up and come out of his shell to emerge as an extrovert. I have observed the change in him. He enjoys the activities given by the teachers.

How comfortable are the children in online classes?

Very comfortable, but they are missing going to school. Viraj is missing his friends and the school playground. Otherwise, as far as online teaching is concerned the teachers are giving their best. From teaching all subjects to managing activities online isn’t an easy task, but they are doing it phenomenally well.

Your views on value-based education?

I am amazed that my younger son Shaurya has learnt to say ‘thank you’ and ‘sorry.’ Not just has he learnt these words but also knows the meaning. Both my sons respect their elders. They pray before having their meals. At the age of 3, Shaurya knows how to use a fork and knife.
