My daughter did her Nursery, PP1 and PP2 from Bachpan a Play school, Nizampet.  But I was constantly in search for the best school for her. Every year I used to visit all the schools around us, inquire about academics, fee structure, student teacher ratio etc. But I was not satisfied with the replies I got.  Most of the schools would tell about fee structure first and want to continue only after we accept that. They didn’t even understand there are parents for whom fee structure is not the concern.

You must have read my other posts where in I compiled reviews on various schools and posted here.  Finally I thought Silver Oaks would be the best school for my kid and I took the application form in Dec, 2012.

NIMHANS Advisory on Child Abuse

Dear friends,

You may be a parent, an employee or an employer. It is very much important that we are aware how to tackle situations like Child Abuse, if it happens around us.

Child Abuse

Child Abuse

Here are some guidelines by NIMHANS Bangalore.

National Institute of Mental Health And Neuro-Sciences has sent an advisory to schools, parents, police and media to enable them to deal with a case of child sex abuse, in the right way.

Many a times, schools and parents do not know how to deal with Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). The result is delayed complaints / no complaints, destruction of concrete evidence unknowingly, not caring for the identity and dignity of the child enough, insensitive media coverage etc., which come in the way of delivering justice and to the traumatised child and family and getting their life back on track.

National Institute of Mental Health And Neuro-Sciences (NIMHANS) has prepared an advisory which has many important points to be taken care of by everyone.

Need for a child-centric response to CSA

The continual reporting of child sexual abuse (CSA) by media, in the context of many recent events raises the challenge of how to tackle the national menace of this ‘silent violent epidemic’. A critical aspect of child protection, also a child public health issue, CSA warrants systemic approaches that are uncompromisingly child-centric.

Part of this has to do with preventive programs in schools and other childcare agencies. Focus on prevention has the potential to reduce sexual victimization and even sexual offences in the general population. However, when an event occurs, it is addressed by systems of criminal justice, police, schools, families, and healthcare, which generate a flurry of incoherent activity, albeit in good faith, thereby compromising the child’s best interests.

The major emphasis of these activities are directed towards the child ‘victim’ through enquiry, interrogation and intrusive detailing of the event to verify it and then bring the perpetrator to book. The balance between the need for justice and empowered rehabilitation of the child becomes precarious. There is thus an urgent need to develop a protocol-based systemic response ensuring that the child’s agenda i.e. healing and recovery, is at the core of it.

Over the past year, the Department of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at NIMHANS has received several children with CSA issues. When they come for help, they are extremely overwhelmed after visits to the Child Welfare Committee, police station, the hospital; by then, the child has been subjected to questioning on multiple occasions and therefore to re-traumatization.

There are many areas which have to be systematically addressed namely, the child’s reaction to the abuse, ensuring the child’s immediate safety, medical and mental health needs of the child, the concerns of the family, including social stigma. On the other hand, there is a sense of urgency to in legal procedures. Towards this, there is an understandable emphasis by the police on evidence and enquiry processes and related pressure from media and civil society, raising questions on the timely nature and effectiveness of these processes.

What a child-centric response entails:

Based on our experience, NIMHANS believes that planned, protocol-based, comprehensive and sensitive care should be provided at all stages of intervention to victimized children. The primary goal is to create a system of investigation which is child friendly and in accordance with principles of child rights and protection.

Where can families go for help?

  • Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act 2013 (POCSO) mandates that the child be provided with emergency medical services (EMS) within 24 hours of filing the FIR. EMS are provided by state Registered Medical Practitioners (RMP) in government hospitals (Vani Vilas and Indira Gandhi Institute of Child health) and only in absence of such an agency should the child be referred to other sectors. Where the Special Juvenile Police Units (SJPU) work in collaboration with government hospitals, the detailed enquiry can be completed in one sitting rather than the child being interviewed multiple times.

  • Once the medical examination is done and there is medical evidence, what the Dept. of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, NIMHANS can offer is combined therapeutic and forensic interviewing to assist both the healing of the child and the necessary justice processes. This interviewing is done based on existing international protocols which are child-sensitive and can stand the scrutiny of court procedures.

In children with symptoms, we work through trauma by encouraging expression of feelings regarding the abuse, validating experiences, and teaching personal safety. In very young children, this is done through art and play work. We offer social interventions in order to help the family cope with the consequences of abuse, also facilitating liaison with the Child Welfare Committee (CWC), Centre for Child and Law (CCL) and legal aid services as necessary.  

  • It is important for parents to not ignore or undermine a child’s statements and innocuous remarks. When in doubt it would be prudent to corroborate the information from various sources. An open, supportive stance, assuming a position that child is right would be helpful to facilitate further disclosure on abuse. It would be judicious to err on the side of caution especially in face of long term consequences of CSA. It is also important not to blame the child. The support given by the parent helps in facilitating better healing of the victimized child.

School’s response

Preventive workshops, personal safety workshop, life skills education can help as preventive strategies. However, when an incident takes place the system should have a clear protocol for response. This protocol should entail the following:

  • Whether the CSA incident occurs within or outside the school premises, by school staff or others, especially if a child reports to anyone in the school, the school’s position must be one of acknowledgement and involvement.

  • Every school must have a pre-set response plan which should include:

    • An identified person (known to the children) who can respond in a sensitive and gentle manner to alleged instances of abuse reported by the child.

    • A next-level reporting authority (such as the principal) who will inform the parents.

    • The school should guide and make available to parents the first level medical and other facilities to seek assistance (described above).

  • Unless the school has a trained counselor or CSA expert, it should not attempt to interrogate the child. This needs to be done by trained experts, preferably in child mental health agencies such as NIMHANS or accredited comprehensive child response units.

  • The school needs to take a proactive stance with the concerned parents and other parents. They may also need to be alert to the impact on other children and get appropriate experts to do de-briefing as necessary.

  • Furthermore, preparation needs to be made to receive the child back to the school in natural and non-stigmatizing ways so that the child re-integrates comfortably.

Police involvement

  • In the immediate aftermath of trauma, when there is non-availability of a trained person within the police forces for sensitive interviewing of the child, they need to refer to an expert in agencies such as NIMHANS, where forensic interview protocols are followed in the context of  healing interventions.

  • Police need to be cognizant that interview processes involving children cannot be hastened as it can exacerbate the trauma and be detrimental to the child’s well-being. For instance, taking a child back to the scene of crime and asking him/her to explain/demonstrate what happened, causes the child to relive the trauma and could interfere with recovery; also, such pressure on the child is less likely to elicit accurate information.

  • They need to understand that there are robust acceptable methods of gathering forensic evidence to meet the immediate legal ends.

Media – good practice

Media should be proactive in responding to crisis in ways that instill hope and confidence in the public versus fueling cynicism as the latter may only serve to increase the child’s trauma, and the family’s fears of social stigma.

  • The media must protect the identity and privacy of the child. This includes allowing and enabling the family to pursue due medical and legal processes without heightening their trauma by repeated and sometimes intrusive queries.

  • It would be helpful for the media, at the time of query/ reporting, to assist the family with information about where medical, mental health and legal, paralegal services is available.

  • Reporting on CSA could emphasize systems and treatments available for assistance, and strongly present the child’s entitlement to healing. This can be done by providing an on-going feedback about recovery and rehabilitation of the child.

Walking and Talking ads spotted in Nizampet

Talking ads – A new marketing concept

Today while waiting for my daughter near bus stop I saw these two boys who had tied these hoardings on their back and were talking with each other. At first glance it did not look very pleasant though. But I approached them and talked to them about their experience. They said it is nice. The concept was the idea of their boss. People do show interest, they come and talk to them about the product. They were also holding pamphlets which they gave to every prospect who showed interest in their product.

talking ads

bindumadhavi.wordpress.com

Its a novel idea as long as the marketing guys and gals enjoy doing it. Because if they look unhappy carrying that board on their back, it will not create a positive image of the product. Inturn if they look happy, then it is a better way to market as they can keep moving from one place to other, one street to other with that board.

print ads

Walking and Talking ads

In this particular photo they are carrying the ad of a pre-primary school. Thus daily they can stand near one or the other day care centers, other pre-primary schools, play schools, parks etc. Nobody can come and remove their hoarding, nor can they paste other ads on the board!!! That is a great advantage indeed isn’t it? Also it will create employment for jobseekers.

I feel this type of work will specially work for kids related products, if the person holding ad is found to be more attractive with balloons etc, they can promote more kids related products.

You must have read my other posts where in I compiled reviews on various schools and posted here.  Finally I thought Silver Oaks would be the best school for my kid and I took the application form in Dec, 2012. She had a test in December and by January the results were out and she was selected. I think we were done with the admission process by January end.

But even then I was tensed, I was wondering whether we made the right decision. Admission fee was 50k and Annual fee including transportation comes to around 80k. What if my daughter is not happy with the school. What if she asks me to put her in other school? So on and so forth.  But all my tension disappeared on day one itself. As my daughter came from school happily. I met her class teacher when I went to hand over the books. Her teacher Ms.Ramya is too good.

From day one my daughter Anagha started speaking about being independent, to learn new things everyday and so many such talks. Initially before the school started when she realised that her old friends have joined other schools, she was asking me to put her in other school, but now she says ‘ Please dont change my school, I want to study in Silver Oaks. This is the best school’.

Believe it or not she even said ‘ Thank you ma, thank you pa, for putting me in such a good school’!!

I just want to  thank the Director, Principal, Teachers and all the staff for making her feel so good at school and for imbibing values, beliefs, good habits and leadership skills in the children from such an early age.

Hi

As somebody has replied that the school is very good in teaching morals,yoga,slokas all those are true…..

but that is secondary , main thing is the education….

The two women in the reception are very rude at times…… they dont answer any of the queries over the phone….

DEC 2010

Yes, Tipp, MVM has extra-curricular activities. I am not aware of teaching in higher classes now. It is quite an old and established school so i guess the teaching would be good. Kindly visit the school personally and ask the students after the school hours. My friend’s son is in class IX and she is saitisfied.

Regards,
Mickey

MARCH 2011

For which class ? my daughter appeared for 1st. Test was easy, based on UKG syllabus, teacher also helped her. She cleared the exam, though we didn’t take admission.

Fees – 25K admission,

20,400 Annual (10,200 to be paid in Apr and 10,200 to be paid in Oct). Plus 10-15K transportation, depending on the distance.

Negative thing i read on parentree about MVM – communication skills of teachers are not good. Someone told me that they give lots of homework. I don’t have first hand experience though.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Hi Nit20,

MVM  is better than Academic Heights and BVB BHEL. Sanghamitra is good too.

You can prefer either MVM or Sanghamitra.

MVM is having entrance test for class 1 on 19th Feb. if interested , pl contact the school immly.

Rgds,
mickey

DEC 2012

My daughter is in class 1st MVM.  Please find few points  –

  • The school with big building, big playground and big empire of buses. seeing which i got impressed.
  • Annual Fee is 24k + 30k (admission) which might be less than other school in the area.
  • School timings are very long. My kid starts at 7:30am and comes back at 4:45pm, which i think is toooo long for small kids. Last month after Dussherra, they have increased the timings for no reason.
  • If you are staying on the route of bus, its good. else, they won’t change the route, not even for half a km.
  • Most of the activities are for elder kids, not for younger ones.
  • Studies are more like conventional schools.
  • Teachers stability is very less.
  • If you have any problem, the management, and even principal doesn’t listen, they just says every parent has some problem, what we can do.
  • Seeing my small kid condition, many parent from my apartment dropped the idea of getting admission.

Thanks

Hi Yugk,

I admitted my kid in LKG for 2013-14 in MVM.

I was also impressed with the big building, ground, bus fleets. Two things I see which is bothering you. Long hours and Teacher instability. Most of the school will not chane the bus route. Also, principal/management will not hear every parents problems. This was expected. Apart from that any other problem you are facing? I am actually impressed about long hours as I am working mother and anyways my kid would stay in Daycare if not in school.Please let me know about studies standard.

Regards,

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Maharshi, I visited the school and enquired with few parents. Everthing is great about this school, expect for communication skills aspect.  Children dont seem to pick up enough english and converse mostly in thier mother tounges.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

I do not know about DAV Miyapur but my daughter goes to MVM (LKG). She has adjusted well to the school. The timings are rather long which was my initial concern but it looks like she sleeps for sometime at school so in the long run it turned out well. (I am a working mother so I would have had to put her in daycare anyway.)

Class sizes are small. There is no pressure on the children at all and the parent teacher interactions I had with her class teacher were very good. Communication channels are always open, whenever I have put forward any concern (by writing in her dairy) it has been promptly addressed.  She is picking up her lessons well and seems to enjoy them.

The only drawback I have seen is the tendency of the teachers to do her art and craft for her ! I would rather have her paste imperfect pictures in her scrap book than have the perfect work done by the teachers. However this I felt was a minor thing.

Otherwise I have no problems with the school.

MVM also takes all payments in cheques and issues receipts for all of them. There are absolutely no “cash payments without reciepts” as I have encountered in some other Hyderabad schools.

The transport facilities are also very good.

If there is anything specific you would like to know you can write to me in the PT mailbox

Hi

My son is studying 1st class in MVM. Overall I am happy with this school. Few points

> gives adequate time for kids to learn – no pressure and heavy work loads and they teach the concepts well

> good in physical activities (my son always come with lot of dust on his dress and sweat which is very much required in this age :-))

>His English teacher has changed for 2-3 times. So that could be a concern as the younger kids need some time to adjust with a new teacher

> There is an opportunity for other activities like singing, story telling, essay writing etc but not sure how far they are encouraging kids to participate

> Transportation arrangements are very good

> spoken English is not upto the mark, but my son learnt to speak in Hindi (because of his north indian friends)

> parents-teachers meeting – happens with lot of crowd but teachers respond with lot of patience

I am satisfied with this school because 2 points which I have mentioned initially.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Hi Narendra,

many kids come from KPHB and kukatpally, so I think the distance is reasonable. I prefer the commute should not be more than 20-30 mins for the kids<6 years. The buses always come on time and their routing is quite good. So I think MVM buses take the kids in minimum possible times.

Fee structure – it is quite reasonable when compared to all other schools in this area. Annual fee is 20k for 1st std. I enquired atelast 6-7 other schools in this area and all of them quoted minum 40k and upto 1.5L (even more than that).

Regarding spoken English – all teachers communicate in English only. It is usual tendency for the kids to talk among them in their mother tongue. It seems they dont bother much about it and I think it should be completely fine. We can encourage the kids to talk in english but speaking in their mother tongue is not at all a sin!  As I am not a big fan of speaking mandatorily in English, I am fine with this school. So, it is upto your preference.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Sorry for the late reply. Was out of station.

I agree with yndvijaya completely on the first two points. My daughter is in PP1 and the total time she needs to devote to studies at home is less than twenty minutes.  Also parent teacher interactions have been very satisfying. Never felt that the teacher was not giving us adequate time.

I also want to mention that even though they give a rough menu for lunch when I asked the teacher if I can give her other alternatives she agreed as long as they are vegetarian.

About English communication, we are Bengalis and my daughter communicates with her teacher in English, she does chatter with her friend in her mother-tongue and the teacher does not discourage that  (I guessed from the feedback I got from my daughter) . That is okay for me, I believe that language is there to build bridges not to make barriers.

Also recent scientific studies show that the more languages a child is exposed too the better it is for their brain developement. Frankly I don’t mind if she picks up telegu from her school friends.

Again as mentioned by yndvijaya, fee structure is reasonable. I pay all fees by cheques (no hidden payments), one of my chief reasons for choosing this school.

A lot of people shout themselves hoarse about corruption but do not bother about combating the corruption tugging at the roots of our school education system.

Altoghther I have no big compliants about the school. Small problems may be there but I belive they are general problems which would have been there if I had chosen any other school.

Hope this helps

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I must mention that they have a very big playground which very few schools in Hyderabad can boast of. I have gone through the admission process in the school. The teacher asked my son very simple questions like his name, color of the dress he is wearing etc. This was for LKG.

I had a few questions regarding the long timings and they explained to me patiently that they allow the kids to sleep in the class and also that they give ample time for them to have breakfast and lunch.

It is more of an old style school where they also give importance to the spiritual development of the kid. They teach yoga, slokas and sanskrit is compulsory from standard 1.

Please note that they do not have the latest gizmos for teaching which may be used in other schools for example multimedia presentations etc. This is based on my observation  of the classroom and I may wrong with this point

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

When I consulted MVM for admission into LKG for my younger son they assured me of admission and asked me come along with the child for a brief interview. My elder son also study there in 1st class. For 1st class admission they conducted written test for him. After the test I’m surprised how quickly they assessed my child and told me his strengths and weaknesses in the subjects.

What I experienced, the school is good. All our concerns/queries that we mention in the diary are addressed to our satisfaction many times. The teachers and staff are kind and I notice the children feel free and move along comfortably in the school. I am also very much impressed their buses are very punctual and very clean.

They allow around 40 children in a class and I feel it’s not practical for the teachers to focus on every child more closely. Parents should be prepared to spend some time teaching the children.

It can be more good if they could improve greenary and facilitate bit more play ground infrastructure.

This school might be a good school. But they need to change their counselor. She doesn’t know how to do business. She doesn’t know the slightest etiquette even. I asked her how many kids are there in a class? And she said it’s non of your business. Then I said thank u and came back from there. I will never ever go back there. When they cann’t respect us how can they respect our kids.

  1. This school is not concentrating on Basics which is very much required for any child. They have no text books also.
    I don’t think this school is a good school for children of all ages

 

3 August 2012      Hi all,

I would like to share my experience with Silver oaks. My Daughter studied from LKG to 4th Class ( close to six years) I paid only 10000 as donation in 2006. Currently it went up to 1 lack, all most ten folds of increase.

Following are my ratings compared to other school around Miyapur

Infrastructure — 7/10
Education standards —8/10 ( Very good for lower classes)
Education standards — 6/10 ( Not good from 5th grade)
Teaching staff — 7/10
Admin staff — 3/10 (Bunch of idiots)
Management attitude towards education— 4/10 (commercial)

Thanks
Ram

Silver Oaks School bachupally is THE school i was looking for.The excellent Principal Mrs Sita murthy has trained her staff extremely well .She focuses on overall development in a child with a loving attitute towards a child ,since my son is in class PP1 ,children at that age need the love more than harsh method.She manages to make children Happy Learners who look forward to going to school everyday.

I am extremely happy with the administrators especially Mr Dhanunjaya who is very dynamic and full of energy and takes intrest in every child to excel, with a fatherly touch.All children like him very much.

I think Silver Oaks school is the No 1 school in Hyderabad!

 

5 Hi,

I went to silver oaks on saturday for my daughter.this is for  LKG admission.As it is well established school(at least in parents mind),they are in hurry to make money.There is no advisor available,only apllication vendors are there.If you ask about fee structure and academic details,they are giving in short answers.more over asking to go through their site.only they will tell you fee structure.the fee also increased drsstically compared to last year(more than 30%).If you do not buy the apllication,they will give you rude look on you.For LKG ,the fee structure as follow.

Donation:40K

Term fees:12k*

transportatioin:4.5k*3

deposit:10k

annual fee:9k

books+exam fee+uniform–10K(This is my guess)

outings+picnix etc—5k(this is als guess)

If you dont have any problems in spending money on education,then you can think of.what i have mentioned above is for LKG.

my opinion :

1) Quality of education– no idea

2) Teachers & Management–in one of the reviews,some people mentioning different opinoins.if the application vendors are teachers,my vote is negative

3) Infrastructure–too good

4) Extra Curricular Activities–might be good

5) Transportation–mentioned

6) Fee Structure–mentioned

Vikas is much closer to highway than Kennedy or Silver Oaks may be after Sentia. My cousin’s kid goes here for LKG. He has been happy. I am sure Acaademics will be good at Vikas nto sure how good are extra curriculars. For now i choose Silver Oaks. i am sure there will be seats at other schools (Kenndy or Sentia) even in Febrarury. last year they had seats in April too. Silver oaks has Dec 31 dead line for phase 1 that is why i put in app there now and seems to be higher demand of all schools on that road.Srini

2.) Silveoaks: 10 year old school follow IB-PYP till class 6 and then CBSE, Fee comparatively lesser than DPS but after Admission year to year cost will be more or less same. Good feedback from parents
