    To All the Panchgani People, do not ever seek admission in pinewoods High School, it is a third class and In-Diciplined School, Any body can seek admission in pinewoods high school, u will see how Mr Devendra and Renuka Parihar trustees of Pinewoods high school will put bread and butter while taking admission and half term fees. and while asking refund or tc from school they wont entertain you or bother to ask you, you will see what magic they will play on you..they are making money out of education system, they are the biggest cheat.and the boys of pinewoods high school are the most notorious, the boys argue the teachers, the boys do no have any respect for the teachers, the boys are so shameless that they fart also in the front of teachers, the boys who are the main boys of the trustees, they can do anything they can will, One time the matter was such that a boy showed such a misbehaviour that the teacher had to slap him, the boy in the front of the school shouted the teacher, and when questioned by the trustee, the teacher explained what happened, the teacher was told to leave the school.
    Please do not take admission in pinewoods school, u will be in great problems, dont spoil ur childs carrer by taking admission there, it was my duty to inform you, rest its upto you..people.

    My name is Pranal Thappa, I am a Parent of a child who was admitted in Pinewoods High School. When I took admission of my child in this school they were saying that the school gives such good facilities and such things, and once my child was admitted there., as told by him he said the students of pinewoods are addicted to Drugs, the students take drugs in the deomataries, chew tobacco. Smoke Cigrates and drink beer, wine and such kind of things, The boys are that kind of crooks that they do homo sex in the deomatries, When I heard by my child about this I thaught of discontinuing from this school, As a Parent I really feel ashamed that how I admitted my child in such a school.I really agree on the Comments as mentioned by others..The Management of the school is also totally hopless, you pay the entire money and you will see their magic, Please do not admit your child in pinewoods international high school, Anybody seeking information about this school, email me on thappa__05@hotmail.com.

    This is in response to the letters I happened to browse, which are upsetting and therefore I take this opportunity to write on behalf of the Pinewoodian Community which has built up over the years. As I remember my school, which was known as Pinewoods High School and now it has groomed to be International also offering Junior College curriculums. Over the years after completing my schooling from Pinewoods, I have been in touch with the students and had the previlege of visiting it on few occasions, the latest being 2001 when most of us visited our dear Principal, who was and will be like a parent to us. All of us who had gathered, many of whom I had not studied with, had one opinion that was, " I MISS PINEWOODS".
    Pinewoods has stood out tall for academic excellence, discipline, clean to perfection atmosphere, and the yummiest of the yummy food. The feeling of home is in the air be it school or the dorms.
    People who have tried to turn a blind eye to its rules and regulations usually are the ones who get into these conflicts. I have seen many students who were deserving but could not afford benifitting from the school.
    So, introspect and find out where you or parent went wrong? Though there have not been students by your names as long as I was in school, which were memorable 7 long years.
    Anyway there is an advice from me, IMPROVE YOU ENGLISH! (Why do all letters have bad English? Are they posted by one villian)
    On behalf of my student community, love and respect your school. Sonal Patel. pinewoodiansallindia@hotmail.com

    I am Kapil agarwal, i was a student with pinewoods high school 18 yrs back, and this is with comment posted by sonal patel, who says she had studied in pinewoods high school, Well, i have been studied in this school the year 1993-1994, well and for 1 year, and I myself while taking tc from school, the trustee there Mr Parihar he was not ready to issue my school leaving Certificate he, was asking false money for that, well, and i have been in touch with the batch students who have studeied with me there, till 1997-1998, and pinewoods high school is really a very small school, which has only a student strength of about 120 students, there they give admissions directly without any test, or any performance of the student, Mr Parihar who is the trustee there, directly gives admiision to students there, an while asking for leaving certificate they will automatically try to delay the things, and wont even respose any how, As per my knowledge i have been in touch with the batch students who studied till 1997-1998 well and till i know with such a less no of students being there, there was nobody by the name of sonal patel, who has ever studied there, I am sure some staff has posted this comment by the name of sonal Patel, to attract the people to take admission there by writing about its facilities, well i just want to convey a message, well atleast the staff had to write the students real name who had studied in such a school for years, why to give false names, better be smart enough if you are posting something, As per my advice please dont admit your children in this school.

    Hi! Sic...
    What is the meaning of false money. I am sure your dad must have been asked to clear the outstandings or notice fees, which if your dad was literate would have studied the prospectus. We all are smart today and comfortable in life because we are educated and our schooling taught us to be good people and not nurture grudge you sic sic man. You are a dangerous man with negative thoughts. Your intentions are just to harm the institution. I am your senior, and I am a dentist in the US of A. Many of us are flourishing in our lives. You are talking about 120 students, we were just over a 100 and it was like a BIG BIG FAMILY. We cared for each other and our school. Big number of students does not mean a school has to be good. Pinewoods has always been a small school with excellent results, excellent facilities and of course excellent atmosphere why have I missed out the excellent food. So loser introspect yourself and find out what you are today, and ask your dad why???????
    I doubt you knowing the school, are you related to some institution and trying to malign our school. Anyway if you are one of us WE shall meet you during old students ALUMNI MEET. Take care and don't be a loser but b+. I wont just print my name but say WE PINEWOODIANS.

    hi Sonal,
    I am rahul mehtta who was a student with pinewoods high school 10 years back, i think if you are that closer to this school you may be knowing me, but i dont know you, as i was for a very short period of time here, and the time which i spent in that school was the worst time i spent in my lifetime, i remember this school which had all sought of bad boys there, and parents whose children studying were either seperated, and has a very bad name in the entire panchgani, when my parents enquired they said its a hopless school.well if you are saying the school every one was like a family, you are 100% wrong, do you know Mr Padvi & mrs padvi there, who were the teachers there, do you know a guy named pawan thappar there, who shouted Mr Padvi in the front of the entire managemnt when mr padvi had to slap him for showing some kind of misbehaviour, and no action was taken against him, as they were the main boys of the derarest principal as said by you. this is what you mean by a family, this is what dicipline a school has, and this is what rules & regulations a school has, you are talking about in a school which gives, and with such a less number of strenght of students, do send me ur email so that we can speak in brief.

    I as a teacher myself for the last 26 years disagree to these comments. These comments I am sure must not have made a difference to the institution because all of them have been talking about not getting a SLC. Anybody who reads these comments can easily make out there must be something wrong somewhere. Let me ask the commentators and the readers, logically as I gather from the comments, this institution seems to be an old school, so there must have been withdrawals every year, then why these disgruntled people are talking about the false money? Did you all follow the school rules about giving proper notice of withdrawal etc. I have a strong feeling that somewhere someone went wrong. Those stories about indiscipline students and teacher being asked to leave is good for pastime but definitely does not sound true. Any institution will not tolerate and accept this behaviour.
    No person can become rich and prosperous by the way you are speaking. Its the sincerity, hard work and dedication that can make a person reach heights.
    I am rather surprised that even teachers looking for a job can comment in such a way. I think you must think twice before taking up this profession. What sort of generation will you bring up.
    You are lucky your comments have gone un-noticed by the people concerned or you could land yourself up in defamation suit as you are just wagging your tongue without proof. If I were you I would give it a second thought. The institution is lucky not to have got you or you would have rot the place.
    A few days from now is the Teacher's Day, so be a good teacher and to the students learn to respect people or you will be always crawling and never have opportunities come your way. A word to the parents, you are sowing dishonesty and hate and you will reap the same. Just think what is you child today?
    Guru.

    My name is Kapil Agarwal(1991-92) Sonal your claim that we are making up stories will fall flat as i narrate the facts. first of all let me tell you the teachers i studied under for 1 full year.
    Jadhav sIr hindi and marathi(tt chop fame)
    Khan sir history ( kader khan looks with immaculate tie)
    Pravin sir sports
    Shalini mam science.
    Gorghe sir english and maths(shalini mams husband and a poet(shayar)
    A portugese teacher(forgot his name) grammar.
    Nani mother inlaw of the parihar and nani of kunal parihar( i heard he was murdered . may his soul rest in peace. He was an ambitious cricketer.)
    Food served vegetarian which was good taste wise.
    We use to go to bakery to get fresh bread in the morning and i used to take new students to the doctor on nani's instructions if they fell ill.
    I can give you 100's of other example.but after i came to know that kunal was murdered, my ill feelings have died towards the Parihar family. I hope they mend thier ways and find peace wuth out thier son.my prayers are with them.
    I have no hard feelings anymore.

    Hi, i rahul mehtta again writing on behalf of Pinewoods School, i will also reveal the facts of this school, as Kapil Agarwal has written on behalf of this school, which i was there several years back, thIs school, had a v less no of students as it was a hopeless school, the boys there were dirties of all, we used to go in the evening from school to hostel, which was 20 mins walking, and from from hostel to school walking, in morning the food served there was vegetarian during my time, as i was for short time i remember 2 teachers who were there MR PADVI & MRS PADVI, (HUSBAND & WIFE), STUDENTS THERE DANIEL HE WAS BATCH PREFECT, ALI BOUH (GAMES CAPTAIN), PAWAN THAPAR,
    (HEAD BOY) THE GUY WHO SHOUTED MR PADVI, IN THE FRONT OF THE ENTIRE MANAGEMENT, AS I HAVE MENTIONED ALSO EARLIER, THESE HUSBAND WIFE LEFT THE SCHOOL AFTER THAT ACADEMIC HERE THROUGH GUILT. THERE WAS AN ENGLISH SIR I DONT REMEMBER HIS NAME HE USED TO SHIVER SEEING THESE STUDENTS. I ALSO HEARD HIS SON WAS MURDERED WHEN SOMEONE WROTE ABT HIM EARLIER, AND HE WAS HIS ONLY, SON, I DONT KNOW WHY THESE BUGGERS ARE STILL RUNNING THE INSTITUTION WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO BURRY THIS MONEY. I LEARNT THAT LORD IS FAIR, IF YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG WITH ANYONE TODAY THE LORD WILL SURELY PUNISH YOU, ITS THE SAME THING WITH BOTH THE PARIHAR FAMILY, THEY LOST THIER ONLY SON, I KNOW IN THAT INSTITUTION DURING MY TIME WHAT WORST THINGS USED TO HAPPEN, EVEN THE EARLIER COMMENTS WRITTEN BY OTHERS LIKE BOYS FARTING IN FRONT OF TEACHERS, AND DOING HOMO SEX ALSO COULD BE VVVVV TRUE, AND MR KAPIL AGARWAL SAYING HE KEPT HIS MARKSHEET VVV TRUE, AS FOR MYSELF ALSO HE WAS MAKING PROBLEMS TO GIVE TC FROM THE SCHOOL. AND DID NOT RETURN EVEN A SINGLE PENNY. HORRIBLE PEOPLE.
