In light of COVID-19 global pandemic, all the students of PICT Model School, Pune are not attending the school since March 2020.  PICT Model school management wisely took all the steps as per Government regulations to avoid spread of virus through physical contact and protect children and teachers’ well-being. 

The school is taking best efforts to provide continued education to our children and has introduced online initiatives. While this is a smart, logical decision in consideration of the health of all students and faculty. During this time of pandemic as kid are having uncertain time of holidays. So during this uncertain time kids are not attending the school for the following reasons, we are seeking a revised school fee:

Despite the "high-quality method of instruction" that PICT Model School is striving to establish, the student body will no longer have access to resources (including but not limited to: labs, facilities, valuable face to face guidance and advising from faculty) to meet standards of a regular school day learning. We believe that these are essential factors of the school learning experience.

We believe that these are valuable hundreds of hours we are missing out on being at the school physically, though we do understand that it is a critical time to uphold social-distancing and self-quarantine to ensure safety of both vulnerable and general populations. It is entirely impossible for the students to receive the fullness of the educational experience we are paying for.

Many parents of PICT Model School students are experiencing great financial suffering due to lockdowns as there is impact to business/ job throughout the country. Even our Prime Minister has requested every citizen to do their part in these tough times and support the community.

We believe PICT Model School can also support the community by providing a revised school fee that greatly assist in alleviating the financial stress and uncertainty of the situation. For starters, eliminating/refunding charges for Extra-Curricular activities (like, Bhagwad Geeta Chanting, Helen O’Grady), Transport Fee and Cafeteria Fee completely and adjusting Library Fee and Gymkhana Fee till the school resumes normal operations.

Also, as parents have already paid the complete fees for the first term, so we feel that the accumulated amount should be large enough to cover the expenses that were described by the school in the email demanding the fees for Second and Third Instalments. Therefore, we respectfully implore the administration to rightfully grant us revised school fee for upcoming instalments.

Sign this petition to spread awareness to ensure our message with proper support from parents’ community is shared with PICT Model School administration.
