New Admissions for LKG 2016-2017

Jan, Feb and March saw us visiting homes of the parents who had applied for admission for their children.

The process: 

The school opens for admission in Jan. 

It is made clear that only children whose parents earn less than Rs 8000/- per month will be admitted. 

Admission forms are then filled in by parents who would like their children admitted. 

Step 1 - Teachers shortlist the application based on the income of the parents.

Step 2 - Teachers conduct house visits to ensure that the income given in the application form is correct. And shortlist the applications on the correctness of the information provided.

Step 3 - The committee members visit the short listed houses, interview the parents, chat with the child to see which child deserves to be in our school most. The list is then finalised.
