About Springdales School, Dhaula Kuan, Delhi
The Springdales School, Dhaula Kuan, Delhi is privately funded school and belongs to Springdales Education Society. a Charitable and Educational Trust registered in May 1956. It is the legal entity for the school and is responsible for its financial stability and the building of its assets as well as its ethos and philosophy.
Its present Chairperson is the founder Principal of the school, Mrs. Rajni Kumar, who is ably assisted by the Honorary Secretary Mrs. P Loomba, and the members of the Governing body.
Springdales epitomises vibrancy and freshness, dovetailing much of the ethos of the new post-independence India into its educational program and philosophy. Privately managed, the school is a secular co-educational one integrating into its curriculum concern for the environment, the spirit of community service and international peace and brotherhood.
Besides spacious classrooms and playgrounds, we have fully developed facilities for each department, with Maths and Science laboratories, a Computer Resource Centre, well stocked libraries, an auditorium and open-air stage, and a Teachers’ Learning Centre. At the end of class X and XII the students appear for an All India examination conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education.
“Vasudhaiv Kutumbkum” which translated from Sanskrit means “The World is a Family” is the motto of Springdales and indeed is deeply etched in the heart of every Springdalian. It is a concept which greatly influences the thought process and value system of all pupils –past and present – as they look upon the school, the community, the nation and the world as a part of the whole family of the mankind.

|The admission policy will reflect the general ethos and philosophy of the Springdales Schools run by the Springdales Education Society (Estd. 1956). The schools are inter-generational, and promote inclusivity, integration and hetereogeneity in their student community. They impart a wholesome education which develops in Springdalians good citizenship, social responsibility and multi-faceted talent. The school motto "Vasudaiva Kutumbhakum – the world is a family" permeates the entire curriculum and elucidates its commitment to an integrated secular India and a peaceful and a socially just world.|
The Management, staff, alumni and parents share a collective vision and mutual purpose in education so that the students may fruitfully contribute to the wider society and address the realities and concerns of our country and of the world.
Springdales has a clear DIVERSITY POLICY in place which is reflective of the Constitutional goals of our nation. We believe in the intrinsic right of every child to receive good quality education. So along with others we educate :-
We have therefore kept the following categories which are in consonance with the school policy and guidelines of the RTE Act.
|For Admission to the 136 seats in the entry class for 2015 – 16|
|1. EWS CATEGORY|
|Children of the EWS category will be given 25% of the seats as per the total intake of the entry class i.e. 34. This is the percentage mandated under the RTE Act and is a part of our social responsibility.
The applicants will have to fulfil the eligibility criteria prescribed by Govt.
If the seats exceed the number of seats available children will be admitted through Random Selection (Draw of lots) in the presence of the parent applicants.
The whole process will be fair and transparent with names of selected and non-selected candidates placed on public domain.
|2. GENERAL CATEGORY|
|For this category there will be 64 seats available which will be 47% of the total seats for this class.
The Criteria for selection of these children will be in accordance with the guidelines given. i.e. there will be no interviewing or screening of children or their parents. The whole process will be fair and rational, non-discriminatory, transparent and child-friendly. Admission will be based on the information given and will have to be backed by authentic proofs with documents attached to the form when submitted. Information regarding parents' professions and educational qualifications will not form a part of the admission criteria. It will be used only for school data processing.
Admission for the General Category of seats will be based on the following criteria as per school's policy for which points will be given to ensure a rational and fair result. If there is a tie in the points for the last seats to be allotted there will be Random Selection in the form of a Draw of lots to finalise these seats in the same transparent manner as for the EWS category. The list of selected and non-selected candidates will be placed on the public domain showing the points secured.
|3. STAFF CATEGORY (CHILDREN OF STAFF)|
|All permanent members of staff have a right to apply for the admission of their children.
Candidates must apply through an Online Registration Form but no points are required for this category. If the applications exceed the number of seats allotted there will be a draw of lots and the non-selected candidates will be deferred to the next session. Grandchildren of retired staff may be considered as fee paying students if seats are not filled.
Any seats unavailed at the time of closure of admission will be transferred to General category.
|4. SPECIAL NEEDS CATEGORY|
|The schools have a well recognized Integrated Special Needs programme for differently – abled children. A Special Needs Centre is in operation. To be eligible for the integrated programme parents must attach authenticated documents related to the disability and a Certificate that the Child is ready for entry to Main stream education. There is no point system for this category but a lottery is conducted in the presence of parents provided that all documentation is complete.
A maximum of 5% seats are available for this category. Any seats unavailed at the time of closure will be transferred to General category.
CRITERIA FOR ADMISSION
|1) Sibling Criteria (20 points allocation) :The school considers this to be a very important factor for admission as it becomes very problematic for parents to have children in different schools.
