You must be aware by now of the fixed seating arrangement during the 1:45 pm route. We would like to inform you that, as a pilot project, fixed seating was implemented in three buses. We received feedback from both students and the transport staff, that the fixed seating arrangement helped in maintaining the decorum of the bus, thus ensuring that students follow bus routines and procedures. Hence, we have implemented the same in all the buses for 1:45 pm route. Students continue to have free seating in the morning route where they can interact with friends
Fountainhead School promotes freedom to students in many ways. Thus, having their choice of seat in the bus was one of the freedom that was given to students. Freedom comes with responsibility, but despite repeated warnings, counselling sessions and consequences given to students across years, it has been observed that bus discipline in the D route has been a matter of concern for the students, teachers and parents at large. There have been multiple instances of students bullying, teasing and hitting other students. Many times, groups of older students pick on younger students. Students do not listen to the didi and conductor and their authority is taken lightly. At the slightest instance of the bus staff becoming assertive with students, the students (and even parents in some cases) are quick to complain about the staff. The lack of teachers or an authority that students take seriously in this route was the primary reason that the solution of fixing students seats was thought of.
We agree that all students may not be party to misbehavior and are upset by this new rule. Some students are concerned that they can’t sit with their friends. Some students may find the new rule unfair if they have been well behaved or not involved in misbehavior. We are happy that students feel empowered to voice their concern and we as a school are using this opportunity to talk to them about actions and consequences, making new friends, learning to spend time on their own etc. Parallel to this, the senior students in PYP are also going to work on a project by working on values like respect, cooperation etc to solve behavior issues in the D route.
Your cooperation in supporting this change will help us in implementing discipline along with responsibility amongst students.
Here we come to an end to yet another Unit.
This cycle ended with great vigor where the students demonstrated their understanding of the Conflict unit as a part of their summative assessment by choosing from diverse topics like India-China border disputes- Doklam issue, World War I to Nelson Mandela: “a symbol of the struggle against racism”. The students were seen demonstrating their Social Skills by collaborating and accepting various group roles for their analysis of the chosen topic. During your presence, the students presented the assimilation of their findings by using various media. They were seen making connections with the Central Idea.
Well, the students didn’t only hone their skills of presentation but also dived further into the working of how story elements play a vital role in the creation of any story. They familiarized themselves by identifying and describing the story elements like setting, plot, character, and theme for the character of Elya Yelnats from the reader.
Indeed, it was a cycle full of exploring and expanding the horizon of our little wonders!!

It’s time to collaborate!
You as parents and we as teachers have effectively collaborated to bring out the best in our learners. As we are approaching the end of our ongoing unit, learners will showcase their understanding of the current unit, Conflict, as a part of their summative assessment. They have analyzed various conflicts through the course of the unit and now, with great vigor, they are ready to present their research findings.
We cordially invite you to come and witness the young learners demonstrate their analysis of the various conflicts that they have researched on, as a part of the unit ‘Sharing the planet’, on 6th September 2018.
Parents know their children the best and there is no one better than a parent to observe and report what they are doing. With this thought in mind, we have planned a parent assessment wherein you will be expected to assess your child during the presentation.
