The board of directors of Indian Schools announced the launch of an online admission system for the new academic year, at a press conference recently. “The website, www.indianschoolsoman.com,will go live from January 21,” said Tony George Alexander, chairman of board of directors of Indian Schools.
There has been an increase in the number of students seeking admissions to the 19 Indian Schools in Oman especially in the six schools located in the capital. Most of the applicants seek admissions to lower classes like KG I and KG II and standard I. “We introduced this method to make the admission procedure more transparent,” Tony added.
The website will display the number of seats available in all the schools and parents will be able to apply accordingly. Once the selection is complete, parents will be informed about the status of admission via e-mail or SMS, he added. Those parents who do not have Internet facility at their residence and for those not computer savvy, the board will install three computers each in all the schools, he said.
Parents will be given a password, through which they can learn about the status of their application and it will also allow them to edit the application, he said.
A committee, comprising board members had chalked out this online admission strategy, Tony informed.
