Grade Size Rate INR
Nur to Sr. Kg. Small 580/-

From Grade 1 onwards, students can buy bags as per their requirement/ choice. They can also choose to buy the bag available at School Zone (medium sized one)   if they wish to..

Please follow the guidelines below in case you are choosing a bag of your choice:

  • It should be big enough to carry a folder
  • Separate compartments for tiffin box, water bottle etc is preferable
  • Bag can be of any color. We  strongly recommend to avoid stereotypical colors (pink/ purple  for girls, blue / gray for boys) while choosing a bag
  • Trolley bags are not allowed.
  • Bag with characters like chota bheem, mickey mouse, Dora, Elsa, Spiderman, Barbie, Peppa pig, Doraemon, Hello Kitty, Motu Patlu, Minions or any other character are strictly not allowed. The reason for doing so is to minimize media influence on the child.

Despite these constraints, we assure you that you will get plenty of smart bag options in the market and we encourage you to pick up the same.

Shoes – Students can wear shoes of any brand, provided they are completely or predominantly black. Socks should also be predominantly black. Shoes and socks can be purchased from any vendor of your choice.

  1. I-Card / Parent Card:

Each parent will be issued one I-card and two Parent cards for next academic session. No bearer card will be issued.

I-cards:

It is compulsory for all students to wear the I-card till June 30th after which the I-card must be kept in the bag at all times. Any student not wearing the I-card will not be allowed to board the bus. The  I-Card is also required for issuing books from the library.

Parent card:

We will be issuing 2 parent RFID cards (RFID – Radio Frequency Identification) to each parent for the next academic session. The Parent RFID Card will be used for the following purposes:

  1. Picking up the student from the bus stop during the drop off route.
  2. Picking up the student, while he/she is returning from nature camp, field trips, etc.
  3. Picking up the student directly from school (any person coming to pick the student has to bring the Parent RFID Card
  4. Present it as identification whenever visiting the school for any purpose.

This card will be registered in the school records in your child’s name and will be non-transferable. In case the parent card is not shown, even if you are a parent, the student will not be handed over to you. The same applies when you come to pick the child from the school. In case of any error or changes required in the I-card / Parent-card, please report to the Front Desk for rectification. This could take up to 5 working days.

  1. Transportation:

You can log on to the given link http://www.fountainheadschools.org/connect-with-us/helpdesk/ to view stop and timings after 10th May 2018.  During the first few days of school, transport schedule and routes can be a little off track as students are still adjusting to the new schedules. Further, because of rains from June to August there may be a delay in timings. Therefore, we hope for full cooperation from you during this period, till the schedule is settled.

  1. Chromebook: Every student of Grade 5 and above is expected to purchase a Google Chromebook from the next academic session. For more details please refer to the given link http://www.fountainheadschools.org/tech-fs/chromebook/.

IMPORTANT POINTS FOR AS / PS PREFERENCES FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2018-19

IMPORTANT POINTS FOR AS / PS PREFERENCES FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2018-19

Dear Parents,

A Gentle reminder to fill the AS/PS preferences form for Academic Year 2018-19, if you still haven’t submitted the form. The last to submit form has been extended to 18th April’ 18, kindly fill the form at earliest.

As you are aware, Fountainhead School pays a lot of emphasis on arts and sports. To this end, the school offers a variety of art segments and sport segments for students to choose in what is called their AS and PS slots.  The school envisions that every child will choose one art and one sport specialty and pursue this stream consistently over a few years to achieve a certain level of competency in it. AS is available as an option from Grade 3 onwards and PS is available from Grade 2 onwards. We are sending the form to confirm your child’s selection for the academic year 2018-19. The form will pop up  on your home screen when you login into Nucleus from your parent id.

Please read the choices available for your child’s grade and then fill the form in consultation with your child. In many cases, we see that the child has filled the form from the parent id on her own without consulting the parent and vice versa. We sometimes see multiple entries from the same parent id in this case. This time, you will be allowed to submit the form only once so please ensure that you fill the form judiciously as there wouldn’t be much chance to change the selection later. If you still need to change later, you will need to send an email to surat@fountainheadschools.org. However, such requests  will be put at lower priority than the filled forms.

 

New AS offerings for academic year 2018-19

Makers: Students would be involved in hands-on activities, tinkering, exploring to solve design problems and develop creativity and innovation From grade 5 onwards Rs. 9000 per year
Media and Filmmaking: will explore aspects of filmmaking and sound, photography as well as appreciation of award-winning movies, short films and documentaries. Students will work to create multiple products of their own as part of this offering. From grade 7 onwards This is a free offering but students need to bring their own camera for this offering.
Dance (Indian and international Folk dance/hip-hop/Bollywood): We have expanded Folk Dance offering to include Indian and international folk dances and somemodern dance forms like hip-hop, Bollywood etc From Grade 3 onwards This is a free offering

 

New PS offerings for academic year 2018-19 (All PS offerings have no extra charges)

Wilderness and Outdoor Adventure An exciting new offering which will include a combination of athletics, sports climbing, adventure training, trekking, cross country running, first aid, pitching a tent, outdoor cooking, map reading, compass etc. This course will have an optional trip to a place nearby for applying the skills learnt. This course will help to meet requirements of  CAS and the The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award From grade 8 onwards
Handball Handball is a team game which is a combination of football and basketball. This game is a team game played by 7 players in each team. Students will enhance their eye hand and leg hand co-ordination through this game. This will also provide an opportunity to enhance their body fitness like endurance, agility and speed. This game also involves in the development of various skills like catching, throwing, dribbling, passing and shooting. From grade 4 onwards
Fitness training Students would train in various components of fitness  through strength training, interval training, cardio workouts etc From grade 8 onwards

 

Please read the instructions below carefully before filling the form:

  • You need to fill up both the AS & PS selection form.
  • Your current choice (unless the student is doing AS / PS for the first time) will already be marked in each of the form in the first preference selection.
  • Continuing with the same AS & PS is recommended in most cases so that the student gets time to build skills. However, if after discussion with the respective faculty and student, if you wish to change the AS / PS, please change your first preference itself.
  • Everyone will still need to mark two preferences in case the first preference is oversubscribed.
  • We will try to expand the offerings wherever the demand is high but there will be some limitations. On the other hand, in case of offerings where there are few takers, we may have to remove some offerings.
  • In segments where there are limited seats, students who have done the AS / PS already will be given first preference. For the remaining seats, if the demand exceeds the supply, then we will do a draw of lots for the remaining seats (students will themselves do the draw of lots in this case).
  • Where there are new offerings for a grade, a brief description has been added. In case you wish to know more, please write to us at surat@fountainheadschools.org
  • The last date for filling up the form is 18th April, 2018 (Extended Date) after which, if the form remains unfilled, the current AS/PS selection will be allocated where possible, otherwise the school will assign any of the options based on availability.

Regards,

Fountainhead School

Grade 7 – Summer Vacation Homework 2017-18

Grade 7 – Summer Vacation Homework 2017-18

Dear Parent,

Research shows that all students experience learning loss when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. On an average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in the mathematical computation. There is also around 2 months loss of reading achievements. Teachers need to spend 6-7 weeks once school starts re-teaching material that student have forgotten over the summer. So, to minimize summer learning loss, we have prepared some homework material. Kindly support and ensure that your child completes the summer vacation homework to enable him/her to retain the concepts and maintain the continuity in learning. This will help the students have a smoother transition to the next grade.

Grade 7- Summer Homework 2017-18

This summer vacation homework needs to be submitted to the subject teacher on the first day of school itself. We expect parents to support the child by providing him/her with the time, space and reminders to complete the summer vacation homework.

 

Regards,

Fountainhead School.
