This is to report about the Arrogant and Threatening action of the Mr.Rajendran Principal of SDAV and Ms.Geetha, Principal of DAV School, Adambakkam.
I furnish here below the details of the incident happened at the School premises on 08th June 2013
My Daughter is now studying in 12th Standard at SDAV School. She was the student of DAV school run by the same management in the same premises since LKG to 10th Standard, and completed 11th Std at SDAV school.
We were called by the Management to attend the Parent’s meet today at school premises. Based on the verbal call sent thru the student, self along with my daughter visited the school by 9.00AM to attend the meet. The Parents meet was not conducted in proper way with all the parents. We were asked to wait outside the hall where the meeting is being conducted and individual parents were called separately for the discussions. During the meeting we were asked by the staff member to pay an amount of Rs 34.900/- towards fees for the academic year 2013-14, and further said that this total amount is to be paid by cash only, in single payment, and Installment payments on each term are not allowed.
When asked for the details, I was informed that the break up amounts is -Tuition fees: Rs 29, 900/-+ Note books Charges +Rs 3800/- + Uniform Charges Rs 1200. When asked for the written communication for the Fee structure, they refused to give the same. Further they said that the receipt will be given for Only Rs 16, 000/ and the balance amount will not be acknowledged by any receipts. I was asked to meet the Principal for the further details.
When I was walking towards the Principal office, Mr.Rajendren (principal of SADV) and Ms.Geetha (Principal of DAV) were found on the way talking to somebody near the office building. I approached him and politely asked him for the clarification.
Mr.Rajendren said that, as a general public we were not aware of the school requirements. As the management has to pay heavy amounts to many peoples to run the school, they have no other option but to collect the Un-accounted money from the parents. He had listed many honourable persons including Local councilor, Municipal officials, Local police personal, Education department official and director, political leaders etc, to whom they will take care. Hence they will not issue any receipts for the partial amount being collected.
I once again informed him that, even though fee amount demanded is seems to be higher I shall pay the entire amount as stipulated by the school, but requested receipt for the total amounts.
At this stage he suddenly turned violent and stared abusing me with un-parliamentary words, and shouted in Rude and arrogant manner. He threatened me that they will send out my daughter by issuing Transfer certificate and will not give any conduct certificate also.
When I questioned about his misbehavior and threatening attitude, Ms.Geetha and One more Person Mr. Saravanan (Brother of Mr.Rajendren) also started shouting against us. Mr.Rajendren and Mr. Saravanan attempted to beat me up, but was prevented by some other staff, who gathered around. Ms Geetha called security staff, and soon we were surrounded by a group of persons lead by Rajendren and Saravanan, and they were trying to attack me once again. Mr. Rajendren challenged me that he will go to any extent and threatened again that I will have face dire consequences if we question him.
Ms.Geetha intervened and shouted in a very rude manner that she will not allow my daughter to enter the school premises any more, and will ensure to dismiss her immediately.
We were forcefully, Physically, Pushed out of the school premises.
We were shocked by the total rude attitude of the School management, and the arrogant attacking behavior of the team lead by Mr.Rajendren. We were caught in-between a group of rowdy like persons and were helpless, had to run out for our safety.
We could not digest the attitude of repeatedly threatening the student and Parent by means of issuing TC, Just because we asked for receipts for the amount to be paid.
The Insulting treatment and Physical attempt to assault, we had met at the school premises in-front many staff members and Parents had caused great amount mental agony, tension, and we are very much worried about the further study and future of my child. The safety and security of my child is also found not guaranteed under the un-lawful Threatening leadership of Mr.Rajendren and his team. My daughter is frightened and afraid of going to school.
It is highly regretted that The School which is supposed to lead the students for a disciplined character, is turning into a Un secured violent spot for the Student and Parents.
Could anybody suggest further action, It would be appreciated if all the parents come together for a united representation.
