‘My son is enthusiastic about the class activities at Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri, especially phonics’

Alka Gupta, mother of Ryaan, a nursery student, says the school teachers give importance to parents’ suggestions



Ryaan Gupta, who is studying in nursery at Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri, enjoys interacting with his teachers and participating in various class activities, says his mother Alka Gupta, a homemaker. In an interview, the mother tells us why she chose Apeejay for her Ryaan and how the school has lived up to her expectations. Edited excerpts:

Why did you shortlist Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri, for your child?

When I asked some of my acquaintances, all of them suggested Apeejay. My husband Sachin Gupta, a businessman, was also in favour of enrolling our son in the school. Prior to admission, we had personally interacted with a few children who were studying in the same school and were impressed with their progress.

Tell us what you experienced when you visited the school at the time of admission.

Apeejay School is the best of its kind in Charkhi Dadri. The infrastructure is very good. At the time of the admission, we got a chance to interact with the principal, who was very cooperative. We were told everything about the school in detail, from the curriculum to safety issues and more.

Is Ryaan liking the classes and learning enough?

Ryaan attended classes at the school campus for a brief period. He interacted with his teachers and friends freely and enjoyed his time at school very much. Now, my son is also enjoying online classes. He is enthusiastic about the interactive class activities, which are helpful in learning new concepts. That way, teachers ensure each and every student pays attention and actively participates in the class. However, he looks forward to going back to school again.

How supportive are the teachers?

The teachers are very cooperative and help parents as much as possible. They give importance to our suggestions and make efforts to solve our problems. Ryaan fell ill recently so his teacher called to check on him. Since I was also unable to attend the classes on his behalf, she provided all the study material that was required to teach him at home.

What kind of progress have you noticed in your child?

With the help of phonics, my son has started reading three-letter words. He also participates in all extra-curricular activities. In fact, he likes these activities more than studying (laughs).
