Dear parents, I have sent a mail the other day regarding turn out and discipline issues. Hope you have had the time to go through it. Kindly make a note of all that is mentioned there. I, once again, seek your help in all our endeavours and I am sure you will pitch in.As usual it has been a very hectic two weeks and we seem to be heading into yet another similar time ahead. It is by choice because whatever we do, we do, with the conviction that it is the best possible way to provide for our children.

Another area where you will have to help yourself and the school is parking issues during arrival and departure times. There is no way the school can provide parking to the ever increasing number of cars. I am sure you would not want us to destroy our beautiful campus for that purpose.

 Then what is the option ?

Well ! as I see it, the only option is to respect what the team of security and our school people is telling you and to exercise some patience and respect for all others (including other parents and school staff). Being rude or abusive or impatient will only make matters worse. Kindly do not park, blocking other cars or our buses exit routes. If there is no place then wait while some place gets done. It will happen, since no one has come to school to stay here. Let’s set good examples for our children. This will help all of us. This is my sincere plea to all.

Warm Regards

Renu Shorey
