Her second son, Kavya Chopra, is a class 12 student at Apeejay School, Mahavir Marg, and her youngest son, Parth Chopra, is a class 7 student at Apeejay School, Model Town. In a brief interview, Mrs. Chopra discusses how Parth’s confidence boosted at Apeejay Model Town and more. Edited excerpts:

Why did you choose Apeejay institutions for the admission of all your children?

Before my marriage, my brother’s children were studying at Apeejay School, Mahavir Marg. I would often visit the school. I knew that the school offers a plethora of extra-curricular activities and conducts fun-based learning activities that eventually help in honing the skills of the students. And when I used to see the school, I used to be totally mesmerised. Although my husband wanted to put our children in a convent school as he himself has passed out from a convent. But I was firm that I wanted to enroll my children in Apeejay schools. I am happy that my decision was correct for them.

Please tell us a bit about Parth and take us through his progress at school?

Parth is doing very well at school. English and Math are his favourite subjects. He is also going to the badminton academy in the school and is enjoying the sport.  

Are the teachers engaging well with the students?

Yes, I am totally satisfied with the teachers. They are simply too good. The teachers are very supportive and always solve our queries. We can always meet them as parents and ask about our child’s progress. In fact, be it the headmistress ma’am or the principal ma’am, we as parents can always meet them.

What is the best thing about the school?

Parth initially studied at Apeejay Rhythms as a part of their first batch. As a kid, he was very shy. But I always encouraged him to participate in all the activities and he would even win a lot of them. The teachers at Apeejay Model Town supported him a lot and that boosted his confidence a lot.  There are a lot of positive changes in him now. 

How has the experience of the online classes been for Parth?

Apeejay Model Town was the first school to start with online classes. It was a very good experience. Parth would always attend all the classes. The classes were very helpful for him. The teachers also organised all the competitions, annual functions in the online mode. Nothing stopped in the regular school routine.

Now that the school has reopened, is Parth happy to be back at school?

 Yes, he is very happy to be back at school.
