Tirupur: A large number of parents thronged the Collectorate on Monday to complain of the delay in the commencement of admission process in Jaiva Bhai Corporation Girls Higher Secondary School for the 2010-11 academic year.
They told the Collector C. Samayamoorthy that though the school was scheduled to be reopened on June 1 the authorities concerned had not yet enrolled a single student to Class VI (i.e. at entry level as the school have classes from Std VI to XII) till now.
“We have been returned by the school administrators on at least four occasions in the last one month stating that they were preoccupied with some other works,” they said.
The petitioners later told reporters that they were extremely nervous owing to the inordinate delay since the cut-off date for admission to other schools were also almost over.
“Any failure in getting our children admitted to this Corporation school at the 11th hour will leave us with no other option but to skip an academic year, which is indeed miserable for a child,” parents pointed out. Meanwhile, Jaiva Bhai school headmistress A Vijayanandam clarified that the admission to Standard VI would be conducted on June 2.
