MONSOON MUSINGS

MONSOON MUSINGS

Dear All,

Students of IBDP Year 1 and 2 have taken an interesting project for CAS. Monsoon Musings…!

Monsoon Musings is a student-led Poetry Event that intends to give budding writers (students, staff, parents and grandparents) an opportunity to express their ideas – in the form of poems and tiny tales.

In addition to the poetry event, as part of our CAS activity, we introduce Seva Cafe – a unique concept where we serve food during the poetry reading and people can pay whatever amount they think is right. We will also put up Art Stalls which will display various exquisite Artworks which can be sold by the Creator of that art piece. The proceedings of every part of the event will go to charity, including the sales of Art installations.

 

We welcome all the senior school students and their parents (along with grandparents) to showcase their potential as a writer – in English, Hindi or Gujarati. So, here is your chance to express yourself and be heard.

 

Students interested in participation can fill up this form below to let us know which particular event they want to participate in. They may also directly send their Poem or Tiny tales to monsoon.musings@fountainheadschools.org latest by 20th August, 2018.

Form link : https://goo.gl/Y3bHkG

Parents and grandparents can directly send entries to monsoon.musings@fountainheadschools.org in English, Hindi or Gujarati.

There will be sifting of content for offensive language or profanity – both of which will automatically make your work liable for rejection.

We look forward to having your valuable creation as part of adding to the beauty of the event.

Why wait and be late? Just pen down your ideas and emotions and send your entries at the earliest.

We thank you in anticipation.

 

Date :   Saturday 1st September, 2018

Venue: Atrium (Poetry/Story reading), Rendezvous (Seva cafe and Art displays).

              Note: Venue of the event in school may change based on the weather conditions on the day of  the event.

Time:   9.00 am to 11.00 am

Regards,

IBDP Students.

THE INTERNATIONAL AWARD FOR YOUNG PEOPLE (IYAP)

THE INTERNATIONAL AWARD FOR YOUNG PEOPLE (IYAP)

Dear All,

We are pleased to announce that Fountainhead School has been registered for the International Award for Young People (IAYP).

In India, The Award Programme Foundation is licensed by the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Association to run IAYP in India as the National Award Authority or NAA.

Details About the IYAP:

The Award Programme was first introduced in the United Kingdom in 1956 as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The aim was to motivate young people aged between 14 and 25 years to become involved in a balanced programme of voluntary self-development activities to take them through the potentially difficult period between adolescence and adulthood.

The Award’s concept is one of individual challenge, giving young people a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities which encourage personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community. Those who participate in the Award are expected to follow its requirements in a non-competitive manner with a determination to succeed, either individually or as part of a team. The Award therefore is challenging, and can be undertaken at your own pace.

The Participation Age is between 14 and 25 years. The basic structure of the Award consists of 4 mandatory sections Service, Adventurous Journey, Skills and Physical Recreation. There are 3 levels of the Award – Bronze, Silver & Gold. Participants must complete the four mandatory sections of Service, Adventurous Journey, Skill & Physical Recreation.

Participants can undertake all three categories of the Award programme or enter directly at any of the three levels in the following age group;

Level of Award Age group Duration
Bronze Award for those over 14 6 months
Silver Award or those over 15 12 months
Gold Award Or those over 16 years 18 months

For each of these levels a participant is required to undertake activities under each of the four sections. At Gold level, participants undertake a Residential Project in addition.

The Award

  • Available to all.
  • Participation is voluntary and offers a wide choice of activities.
  • An individual challenge as it is non-competitive.
  • Achievement focused – only positive remarks are recorded.
  • A marathon, not a sprint. Successful completion calls for persistence and commitment.
  • An enjoyable experience for both participants and adult volunteers.
  • All about teamwork and the building of interpersonal skills.
  • Non-political; no considerations of religion, caste or creed are relevant.

Benefits:

The Award Programme currently operates in around 9000 schools worldwide within national programmes or as individual units (Independent Operators).

The Award is a life changing experience that enables students to:

    • Gain recognition for extra/co-curricular activities
    • Improve their personal development by learning new skills such as time management, teamwork and problem solving
    • Build their confidence by trying something new
    • Make a positive impact on their community through volunteering

 

  • Undertake activities that support applications for college, university or employment. This award will help students  to build a strong resume when applying to universities abroad as well as to progressive universities in India

Safety Audit @Fountainhead

Safety Audit @Fountainhead

Dear Parents,

Safety and well being of students is of utmost importance to us at Fountainhead. To this end, we had undertaken a safety project last year to improve safety and well being measures at school.

The next step that we have in line is to to invite parent volunteers for an audit of safety practices at school.

What is a safety audit?

A safety audit is to monitor and analyze an institution’s operations in order to determine how well it conforms to a set of specific criteria.

In this case, the parent volunteers of the safety audit team will assess the school’s safety measures based on Aarambh India’s checklist

Categories/Departments for audit:

  • Physical Safety
  • Emotional Safety
  • Cyber Safety
  • Social Safety
  • Emergency Measures

How will the process work?

Once we receive responses from the parents, a short meeting will be arranged to discuss the details. The Safety Audit committee members, i.e. parents will be divided into groups as per the preferences chosen by them. Each group will be conducting the audit for a specific department, will be completing the audit and bringing it to conclusion by writing comments for the chosen department.

Interested parents need to click on the following link and fill the form latest by 16th August, 2018.

Safety Audit @ Fountainhead

The audit along with the parent orientation will be done in the first week of September. (Date will be informed to you later). The parents might choose to do the audit on the same day or some other day in the same week. Important point to note is that parents should be willing to spend a day in school for the audit.

Let’s join hands and work towards ensuring safety of students at Fountainhead!

Regards

Fountainhead School
