Selecting Schools – Pops In A Pod

Choosing a school for your kid is a dreaded experience nowadays. There is no comfort in seeing your child grow up to go to school one day. It’s more of a race, it’s the biggest thing that you will have to do as a parent and just thinking of that destroys whatever little joy there is about your child starting out at school. And that’s just the beginning.

Once school actually starts, that’s a different ball game altogether.

In today’s episode we speak with another father, a very good childhood friend of mine Yusuf Lokhandwala. We were in nursery together and graduated from the same school, today at a young age of 36 we are parents and discussing what it’s like selecting a decent school for our kids.

Yusuf brought up multiple factors for selecting a school for his son. This included vicinity, school board, legacy, future prospects and of course the quality of education itself.

I also talk about my horrendous experience with my ex-school which I thought would have been a perfect fit for my daughter but I was proved horribly wrong. And this experience forced me and the wife to consider international board.

Peter talks about his experience of queuing up to get the admission form for his son the day he turned ONE year old!
