There has been a lot of buzz at the gates and inside the campus of St John’s Hr. Sec. School in Mandaveli this past week. On Tuesday, parents of a few students raised their voices when they found that the school had declared a holiday for the day but intimated the parents via SMS and hence, the info had not reached many people and messed up their mornings.
The holiday was declared because a party event held on campus the previous evening went into the night – it was not clear why the holiday had to be declared suddenly.
On Wednesday, the buzz grew after parents raised more serious issues like the school making changes in its morning and afternoon shifts, shuffling academic plans and raising its fees.
At first the school managers stuck to their guns but agreed to face-to-face meetings after the parents raised their voices.
