Parents of students studying in Ryan International School’s Bhondsi branch are worried about the possible loss of CBSE affiliation for the school. Some of them have started approaching other schools in the vicinity and other branches of Ryan International School seeking admission for their wards.
Parents said that transferring their wards in mid-session will not be easy but said that if the CBSE withdraws its affiliation, they will be left with no other choice.
“I was told by one of the teachers that CBSE will withdraw its affiliation. So beforehand, I have started my homework and will shift my son to another school. I am even ready to send my child to another school in Gurgaon but I am looking out for his safety and security first,” said Puneet Kumar, a parent.
Parents are even ready to pay the admission fees in other schools. “My daughter has not attended the school since the incident. She is scared to go to the school and has cried several times that she will not go to the school. She is still under trauma and as a parent, I do not want my child to be stressed at this tender age,” said Paras Khatana, a parent and resident of Bhondsi.
Raj Singh Bhadana, another parent, said, “I have visited three schools in the last two days. The schools are ready to help the parents. Which parent will want to risk the life of their child by sending them to the same school? What if the conductor is not the killer? What if the one who killed is a staff member? I am not convinced with the investigation and the arrest of the accused.”
Most students are yet to return to the Ryan International School, Bhondsi.
Despite several attempts, school principal Neerja Batra did not respond to calls.
