‘Success isn’t solely dependent on books’

A mother of a student at Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, says the teachers here support the students wholeheartedly



It is imperative to choose a school that not only fosters a child’s academic journey but also encourages them to take part in different extracurricular activities. Holistic development helps students to develop various skills that are quintessential to be successful. It helps them grow well-rounded mentally as well as physically.

Dr Sonal Gupta, mother of Niyati Gupta, a student of Class IX, talks about how Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park provides a platform for its students to indulge in extracurricular activities which works as an outlet to vent a child’s bountiful energy. “The teachers of this school are extremely supportive and are always available to provide help whenever needed,” Dr Gupta said.

In a candid interview, she says that she is happy that her daughter studies at this school.

How has been your child’s experience at this school so far?

It has been exceptionally positive. I am very pleased to see how supportive the teachers are at this school. The way they encourage their students to participate in different activities apart from just academics is commendable.

Since when is your daughter studying at this school?

She has been at this school since the nursery. What is even more amazing is that we have not encountered a single issue. I am thoroughly pleased with the school’s educational system, and our experience has been satisfactory. I believe, there could have been no better school for my daughter than Apeejay.

Is she involved in any extracurricular activities?

My daughter is equipped with a logical and reasoning mind. She is a chess champion and has been practicing the sport for years now. She actively participates in various Olympiads, showcasing her intellectual prowess as well.

How do you support her education at home?

There is barely any need for me to sit down with Niyati or encourage her to study. She demonstrates a remarkable level of independence and intelligence. She is well aware of how to handle her responsibilities.

Can you highlight some of her latest achievements?

Two months back, she participated in an interschool chess competition, showcasing her strategic prowess and dedication. I am thrilled to share that she emerged victorious, securing the first position. I am very proud of her achievement and the effort she put into this competition.
