PYP Portfolio

PYP Portfolio

Dear Parent,

As you are aware, with the advancement of technology and with an aim of saving paper, we have moved to the online portfolio. Seesaw has been used extensively for all the grades this year for digital portfolio.

Apart  from the grade level portfolio, we also have PYP portfolio which represents the journey of a student across the PYP Grades and is handed over to the student towards the culmination of PYP journey i.e. at the end of Grade 6.

This year onwards we will be phasing out PYP portfolio as the digital portfolio has arrived. For the current year, all the grade level pieces have been uploaded on Seesaw. For Grade 5 and Grade 6 (academic year 2018-19), we will be following the previous process eventually phasing out that as well.

Therefore the PYP portfolio of current Grade 4 and Grade 5 will be retained in the school this year whereas the homeroom teacher of Senior KG to Grade 3 and Grade 6 will be sending the PYP portfolio with the student, which is to be kept at home.

Regards,

Fountainhead School.

PURCHASING/SELLING OF PRE-OWNED BOOKS

PURCHASING/SELLING OF PRE-OWNED BOOKS

Dear Parent,

We at Fountainhead School are doing a pilot project on PURCHASE/SELL OF PRE-OWNED BOOKS (Reader). We are starting this process with Grade 4 and Grade 5 students. If this process works then we will do it across grades, where the same readers are continued  in the next academic year.

The reader for Grade 5 is The Tale of the Despereaux. Last year this reader costed Rs. 245/-

The cost at which the reader will be sold out, will depend upon the condition of the book.

  • Category 1: If the pages in the book are intact and the book is in a good condition, it will be sold for Rs. 150/-
  • Category 2: If the book is scribbled or has pages coming out, then it will be sold for Rs. 100/-

The onus will lie with the teachers to decide the category under which the book will be sold.

For Grade 4: The books for purchase will be available on first come first served basis.

For Grade 5:  Expression of interest for selling the reader does not guarantee that the book will be purchased by the other student. In case if your book is not sold out, we will be returning it back to the owner.

PS: The school will not be responsible for any missing pages in the pre-owned books.

Interested parents need to fill the PURCHASE/SELL PRE-OWNED BOOKS FORM latest by 27th March. 2018. The form will not accept any responses post 27th March. Further details will be shared with you on the school’s blog.

Regards,

Fountainhead School
