Points to ponder-Manthan Vidyashram

Library Books

Library books should be returned by the prescribed period of two weeks.

Home Tuitions

Manthan does not believe in third party tuitions.
Nothing like parents’ attention and personal care when we find child taking time to comprehend the concepts. Also, kindly avoid:

  • Teaching ahead of schedule
  • Completing book exercises ahead of schedule – leads to distraction and inattentiveness in class

Home Work

Completion of homework is essential to achieve the quality standards planned by Manthan. Manthan is sure that this will ensure a comfortable educational career for the child. Apart from regular handwriting or comprehension exercises, children from Classes 1 to 12 will receive worksheets based on revision chapters.

Kindly ensure children complete their daily homework and bring the books and notebooks on the required submission date.

The homework schedule is based on standards observed in International Schools.

Home Work Duration

Class Timing
UKG 20 minutes per day
Class 1 30-40 minutes per day
Class 2 40-50 minutes per day
Class 3 50-60 minutes per day
Class 4 75 minutes per day
Class 5 75 minutes per day
Class 6 75 minutes per day
Classes 7 & 8 90 minutes per day
Classes 9 to 12 120 minutes per day

Children who require more support and attention will need a little more time in absorbing concepts.

Feedback

Development of children is like building a house. Some days you will see visible development, some days it is not so visible - like the curing process. It does not mean that there is no development. Without curing process, the building (learning process) will collapse.

There is no necessity to check with teachers on a daily basis. Never ask the child what they learnt that day when they reach home. Instead, after playing some time with the child, ask the child to teach parents/grandparents what he/she learnt. The child will react favourably.

Please avoid talking to all teachers and support staff as it might lead to partial or incorrect information. Manthan will interact with parents whenever the need arises.

Meeting with the Coordinator/Principal/Correspondent can be scheduled with prior appointment.

Transport Facility

Manthan does not own or operate any transport service. Manthan does not have any future plans to undertake transport operations. Parents must ensure that their child reaches Manthan before 8.30 am using any means of transport. Parents can individually or pool up and arrange transport facility for their children when the operator is unable to provide the service for some reason.

A group of private transport operators have agreed to provide transport facility. Routes are decided in the beginning of the year bearing in mind the following based on the feedback from parents over the years:

  • Geographical distribution of children availing transport facility
  • Maximum coverage area (600 meters between any two stops)
  • Road width and condition
  • Number of pick up points in a route
  • Time taken from the first pick up point to the last pick up point (within 40 minutes)

Leave or Absence

Parents must inform management in writing about any absence (short or long) of the child. A leave letter from the parent is mandatory.
