Private schools announce dates for nursery and KG admissions
Around 60 private schools affiliated with CBSE and CISCE boards in Jamshedpur declared admission dates for nursery and KG students on Saturday.
Almost all the schools have declared their entry-level admission results through online and offline modes for the convenience of parents. Since a few years, private schools, under the Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act, have been organising lotteries to randomly select students to fill up the entry-level seats instead of interviewing them. As per the RTE Act, 25% of the total nursery or KG seats are reserved for the downtrodden, SC, or ST. While the schools conduct lotteries for the rest.
“Most of the schools have online and offline modes of declaring admission results. The admission formalities will be done next week between January 18 and 22,” said Swarna Mishra, principal of Dayanand Public School in Sakchi.
Loyola School, Sacred Heart Convent School, Carmel Junior College and DAV Public School have uploaded their results on their respective websites, while the other schools have also put up a list on their notice boards for the convenience of parents.
The schools have decided to hold their annual examinations from February 8. They are now waiting for the state government’s directive to begin the new session. However, the online classes will begin from March 21 if they do not get any instruction from the government.
“My daughter has been selected by two schools. Online learning cannot replace the school classroom. I hope the students will be able to visit schools this year, meet with friends, and get special attention of teachers,” said Simran Singh, a happy parent.
