‘The teachers at Apeejay Kharghar never leave a child in anyone else’s care. They wait till the parent arrives’

Mrs. Bhakti Indrajit Kadam, mother of Apeejay Kharghar student Amruta Kadam, mentions how the school is bringing out the best in her child



Bhakti Indrajit Kadam is a homemaker and her husband Indrajit Kadam is a professional painter. Their daughter Amruta Kadam is a class five student at Apeejay Kharghar. In a brief interview, Mrs. Kadam highlights the school’s focus on academics and appreciates their vision towards the development of a student’s personality. Edited excerpts:

Why did you choose Apeejay Kharghar ahead of other schools for Amruta’s admission?

I had availed her admission through the RTE (Right to Education) number. It comes under the government’s welfare scheme.  Apeejay Kharghar is a very good school and we like it a lot. Earlier, we stayed in Kharghar so the school was near our home but now it is not so, for we have shifted to Panvel. Her father goes for his job to Kharghar, so Amruta travels to the school with him every day.

Please tell us a bit about Amruta and take us through her progress at school?

Amruta simply loves to dance. She always had a knack towards academics and likes to study as well. She loves Marathi and Hindi the most amongst her subjects at school. She is a very good student and is performing very well at school.

Are the teachers engaging well with her?

The teachers are teaching her very well. Amruta always tells me that all the teachers teach very well at the school. So, I do not have any particular names for any teacher but I would say that all of them are doing a great job.

What is the best thing about the school?

The best thing about the school is their focus on academics. I like that the school is very strict about academics. It is good as it enhances the student’s personality. Also, the teachers themselves drop the child at the school gate when the parents come to pick them in the afternoon. The teachers wait and do not leave the student in anyone else’s care until the parent arrives. I really like that a lot.

How has the experience of online classes been for Amruta?

The teachers taught very well in the online classes but at times, it was really difficult for students to sit in front of the screen for 7-8 hours. The teachers would explain the concepts to the best of their capabilities still the touch of the physical classes was always missed.

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

She is very happy to be back at the school for offline classes. She tells me every day that she is performing very well in her class.
