Alok Singh’s children Akshita and Arindam are students of classes 12 and 7 respectively at Apeejay International School, Greater Noida. In an interview, the father, who is running Techno Craft Overseas, which exports textiles, recalls the “amazing” experience that his kids had when they were going to school, prior to the pandemic. From being a timid student, his daughter has now turned into a confident young girl, he tells us in an interview. Read on to know what he thinks of the school.

What encouraged you to enroll your children in Apeejay International School, Greater Noida?

It was people’s positive feedback that got me interested in Apeejay International, Greater Noida. My colleagues and friends told me the school was one of the best. So, I met the school principal and was very impressed. I realised the school will be ideal for my children.

What kind of exposure has the school provided to your children?

Akshita has had a wonderful time at school. She has won accolades through her consistent participation in various activities and inter-school competitions. She is most interested in pop music and sings well. Her passion for music has been constantly encouraged by her teachers and the school administration, which is great. The school gave her the platform to showcase her talent. At the same time, Akshita has been doing very well in academics.

How has the school influenced your children’s overall progress?

My daughter is much more confident today. When she joined the school, she hesitated to speak or participate in extra-curricular activities, but I could observe a gradual change in her personality. She has always been appreciated by her teachers. She is now the head girl of her class. Overall, I have seen a lot of improvement in her.

Arindam too has been receiving a lot of support from the teachers. He actively participates in sports.

What do you think of the teaching methods adopted in school?

The kids have been taught well. The teachers have been successful in building a strong academic foundation in them. Students build a strong connect with the teachers, which, in turn, impacts their level of interest in a subject. They are also trying to build their relationship with the new teachers who joined the school recently.

What kind of values have your children learned ever since they joined school?

Apeejay is very good in terms of the personality development of students. My daughter has picked up the right values and thanks to the school, she has turned out to be a well-mannered girl. There is also some sort of an emphasis on promoting inclusiveness through the celebration of festivals and knowing about each other’s culture.
