Community Service (Grade 6- PYP Exhibition)

Hello Fountainhead,

We are the students from Grade 6 Evolve- Anushree Anandani, Yashasvi Agarwal, Devanshi Madhogaria, Swayam Bhansali and Diya Garg.

For our PYP Exhibition, we researched on the Agariyas (the salt pan workers of Kutch) and the hardships they face like deficiency of calcium and/or Vitamin A, dry skin, salt bite in feet, blood pressure, unhygienic management in biological issues of women, lack of Sufficient water (1,000 LTR in 10 to 15 days), meagre income, value of salt – 0.18 Ps/kg to 0.27 Ps/kg, less children going to school and lack of resources for study…the list is endless.

But, we can definitely come forward and help them.  We request you to donate for Agariyas. You can give sanitizers, cotton clothes, sun burn cream, moisturizers, sanitary napkins, gumboots, slippers, utensils, caps etc. Please send items you want to donate in Grade 6 Evolve latest by 17th April . Students can bring and hand over the items to any of us in G 6 Evolve.

Kindly avoid giving cash/food items. Thank you.

Regards,

Anushree, Yashashvi. Devanshi, Swayam and Diya (Grade 6 Evolve)

Concern regarding Mosquito menace

Concern regarding Mosquito menace

Dear Parents,

Due to the recent weather change and nearby fields yielding crops of paddy and rice, there is a remarkable shoot up in mosquito menace within and around the school premises. Though we have been taking necessary measures to reduce this menace (everyday early morning fogging in classrooms, toilets and other major areas, removal of stagnant water, using mosquito repellents etc) the concern still persists to some extent.

Hence, we request the parents to kindly send their wards to the school wearing the long school pants instead of the school shorts and regular socks instead of ankle length in order to avoid the mosquito bites on the lower part of the body. Students with sensitive skin to kindly make sure to have mosquito repellent cream applied from home.

We also request parents to take the necessary precautions at the same time as this is beyond our control.

Regards,

Fountainhead School, Kunkni.

Night Out of Grade 9 -12 (2016-17)

Night Out of Grade 9 -12 (2016-17)

Dear Parents,

Night out for  Grade 9,10,11 & 12 is scheduled on 27th January 2017. The students will come to school by their regular 8:50 am bus routes and have a regular school day. Kindly send the luggage along with the students in the morning itself.

The drop off routes for the next day (Saturday, 28th Jan’ 17) are mentioned at the end of the page.

Please refer to the details given below:

Objective:

Night-out is the time for sharing and the children learn differently from how they do within the four walls of the classroom. It is also a way to experience school after the working hours and see how the campus looks on a dark night. It teaches the child to be independent, taking them out of their comfort zone.

Therefore it is our conscious choice to make them sleep in the open; and  be courageous to face the elements of nature. Night out is about appreciating nature as much as it is about enthusiastically having fun. So these two experiences together create a powerful learning atmosphere for the students of which certain discomforts are a part of.

Hence, we urge the parents to prepare their children for being open-minded and experiencing something different from what they get at home for e.g. a warm bed in an AC room, ipads, television etc. In addition to all the fun elements involved, they should also reflect on the learning part in the night-out.

Also, when it comes to Senior School Night outs (Grade 7 to 12), we have a tradition of Night tournament wherein the students play sports like Frisbee, Football, Basketball, Volleyball and many other for the entire night, planning of which is held independently by the students, which focuses on their managing and leadership skills and thus we call it, a Student Led Event.

We would also like to mention a few concerns that may come up during the night out.

Concerns:

  1. Winters – It will be very cold, especially in the school area (where temperatures are 2-4 degrees lesser than the city) and so sleeping outdoors (in  assembly/skating rink) for children is difficult. (Nursery to G 4, students will sleep in assembly area (rendezvous), beyond grade 4 students will sleep in skating rink. If the temperature drops below 12 degree, even older students will sleep indoors)
  1. Mosquitoes – We take all possible steps to reduce the number of mosquitoes. However due to the location of our school in the midst of lush green farms with stagnated water (as the crops are paddy & sugarcane) on all sides, we cannot eliminate the mosquito menace completely.

Steps taken:

  • Daily fogging in open areas in the mornings.
  • Spraying of insecticides in open areas on regular intervals.
  • During Night outs, fogging is once again done in the sleeping area before the students go to sleep.
  • Also, we ask parents to send mosquito repellant cream with the students so that they can apply it on the body before going to sleep.

Inspite of taking care of all the points mentioned above, there still can be cases of mosquito/ insect bite to a few students who have sensitive skin or due to allergic reaction.  In such  case the parent must inform the respective mentor-  teacher  in advance so that the teacher can address the issue.

  1. Insects – At night in most months of the year there are lots of insects that are attracted towards artificial lighting. Our toilets are open at the top to allow for light and ventilation. Toilet lights have to remain switched ON from evening till night (so that students and adults can find it easily). This means that insects will get attracted to the lights inside the toilet and many of them will fall dead on the floor as well. Hence, students are requested to kindly take proper care and wear properly covered clothes at all times.

 

Schedule:

List of items students need to bring:

  2. One pair of clothes, one nightwear & footwear
  3. Kindly carry warm clothes as it is Winter time
  4. Mosquito repellent.

Please note:

  • Students are not allowed to bring any junk/packed food to school for the night out. Mobiles/ ipods/ ipads are not allowed and if found, will be confiscated.
  • There will be sufficient number of teachers and support staff to ensure that the students are safe and secure in the school apart from extra security arrangements for the event. The school also appoints a senior staff member (HOS/principal/ coordinators/ admin managers/TL’s) as a safety monitor for the night out who ensures that all students are safe  in all ways.
  • Also, as per every year’s tradition, we will be having Night tournament (Student Led event) once again, wherein students will be provided with light snacks for which an amount of Rs. 100/- will be deducted from each student’s Imprest A/c.
