The admission season is here. Beating the morning chill, several parents queued up in front of leading schools of the city on Friday to find a “seat of learning” for their children.
Some parents said luck would play a big role in admission of their little ones. Others banked on their hard work — registering the name of their wards in maximum number of schools.
Arpana Singh, who wants to admit her daughter in a renowned school, said: “I have tried my best to prepare her for the good schools in the city. Now, it is her fate where she gets admission.”
If Arpana relied on luck, Rakesh Kumar left nothing to chance.
“I will collect forms from at least three schools so that I can have options later. In case my son does not make it to the best school, he will have chances in the better ones,” said the Boring Road resident.
Most of the city schools have announced the dates for admissions to pre-nursery and nursery classes. (See graphic)
Mont Fort Montessori Home, a wing of Loyola High School, has for the first time posted the admission notice on its website www.loyolapatna.org.in this year.
School principal Brother Felix said: “Information regarding the admissions could be gathered from our website and from the notice board outside the school gate. The registrations would be done on January 19, 20 and 21.”
Felix said admission was open only for Montessori I. There are no vacancies in other classes, he added.
The registration fee for admission to Montessori is Rs 500.
Apart from pre-nursery and nursery classes, a few schools also declared the dates for admission to Class VI. St Joseph’s Convent High School has declared dates for admission to Class VI. Fifty seats are available. Guardians would be required to submit the registration forms by February 9.
