Sumera - 11 May 2020

Just dropping in a quick line of thanks for d the online classes. Raaya has been enjoying the classes and combination of studies plus creative activities has been ticking her buttons. Amanda has been conducting the classes very well and its gud to see Raaya looking forward to online school. The timing and disclipine leads to some structure similar to a regular school day.

Also in particular todays creative cluster class ticked all the boxes for Raaya and she said it was the best class. Please do convey this to Amanda as the teachers are really stepping out of their comfort zones to deliver quality education. Also not forgetting the work done behind the scenes to thank the teachers, administrators and assistants who we do not see.

Thank you :)

Dear Kripa,

First of all please accept my apologies for the late email.

Thank you to the teachers, staff and management. The thank you is for being so proactive and coming up with a solution for online teaching and having the systems in place right from the time the crisis hit us.

The teachers are doing a great job in keeping the kids engaged and seeing that they are not left behind on the acedemic front, kuddos to them. I know how difficult it must be for them given they must be having the house chore to complete and family and kids who are home and have to be looked after. They sure are very proffesional and imparting great values to the kids.

Special mention to the arts, sports and drama teachers it must be difficult for them but are doing a great job to impart their curriculum. Also, appreaciate that the teacher are being innovative and using quizes , powerpoint presentationsand other innovative way to teach the kids. The admin staff and other staff that is working in the background have also to be appreaciated for solving queries helping us in the initial day nad now ass well when we face issues to get online.

The management for having the vision to invest in technology and seeing that not much disruption is happening during the academic year.

Dear Principal and Teachers of Ardee School,

I have to say that, even though I’m going absolutely nuts trying to get the kids to do their school work while trying to do my own work, I’m really glad that the school is doing this.

So happy that the children are gainfully employed for some part of the day.

Am also really enjoying the way they’re taught and what they’re taught.

 I have new respect plus admiration for all of you. Thank you  so much.

Dear Ms Venu,

We would like to thank the Ardee School for starting online classes for the pre primary.

It was a refreshing change for the kids as well as us to see the kids interacting with their friends as well as the mentors. It also gave us an insight on how the mentors teach the kids, which will assist us to teach the kids at home.

Thank you for all the effort you are all putting in to keep the kids engaged during this lockdown.

Finally, we would like to add that we couldn’t be more sure about our decision in choosing the Ardee school for our girls.

Thank you once again. God bless you all and Stay safe!

Dear Ardee team,

Just came to know on the PSA / whatsapp group that there was a complaint made to the Goa Education department about the online classes conducted by Ardee being a waste of time.

My family was surprised to hear about this, in fact Ardee is doing a lot of service to the students especially during this Pandemic, and this is not a waste of time. We know for a fact that the school is doing all that it can to make sure lessons and studies are learnt and not put on hold. We keep receiving the assignments for our son in the Blue class and it is very important that these assignments keep on coming.

So please do not let this dishearten you, and keep up the good work.

Dear Madam,

Warm greetings !!

May I take this opportunity to thank your esteemed school teachers for all the hard work they have been putting and continuing to do so for the progress of our children even when everything else comes to a standstill.

We would specially like to thank Ms. Sujata (environment blue, Ms Keerat Chawla teacher) to talk to keerat over the phone and to know about her well being.

Thank you so much for being so passionate about teaching young children. We are so excited that you give our children the care that they deserve. Thanks for being so kind and thoughtful. We feel extremely grateful to have you as my child’s preschool teacher. Thanks for your patience and for the quality of care you provide. We want to express our sincere gratitude to all the teachers who have contributed to my child’s growth and curiosity for learning inspite of this lockdown.

We value your work so much! We appreciate all your care and commitment to our child’s education and you have proved that no matter what the situation is, imparting knowledge through any medium is always progressive.

Thank you for being a hero in my child's life. Wish you all a very good health.

Dear Ms. Kripa Dessai,

I apologize for the fact that this email is long overdue as Renata and Ryhssa have already completed one Quarter in their new school in the NCBIS - New Cairo British International School.

Yesterday, we had a Parent - Teacher review and the feedback from the teacher about their progress was overwhelming. The teachers did not realize that the kids had missed a year because of the transfer from India to the international IB system.

In other words, Renata had just completed Year 2 in the Ardee school and she joined her year group in Year 4 as she is 8 years old, without attending Year 3 at all. Similarly, Rhyssa went directly to Year 2 - without attending Year 1 and has settled flawlessly in the new class.

At the time of admission, Renata had to answer a 3 Hour Evaluation Test to gain admission to Class 4. The test included Audio Visual Questions, Math exercises and Writing, which she apparently did very well. Similarly, Rhyssa answered a one hour exam for admission to Year 2.

It goes to show that the standard of education in the Ardee School is certainly remarkable and I want to commend you for the great job your team is doing. Do extend our heart-filled gratitude to their teachers and teaching assistants in the Ardee School in Sangolda.

Once again, thank you very much and all the best!

Ms. Kripa,

A quick note to say we appreciate the way the sports day was handled by teachers and staff. Minimal time in the sun for the kids, well co-ordinated staff, and well planned event.

Dear Kripa

I would like to extend my sincere compliments and praise to Preeta (Art Teacher).

Every morning when we drop Lily and Sabina off at school we are greeted with a happy, warm and professional smile from Preeta. She has such a happy nature regardless of the day or weather! We have even arrived in heavy downpours and there is Preeta waiting – completely soaked but still so jolly, happy and welcoming to the girls and us. It’s wonderful to see this every day and I just want Preeta to know that we think she’s great and we are extremely sorry to hear that she is leaving. We would like to wish her everything of the very best for the future.

Have a great week-end.

A SCHOOL WITH A GLOBAL VISION

Our curriculum, teaching methodology and tie-ups make our students feel at home with the world.
