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.

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

Dear All,
Drop off old shoes and slippers so that someone in need can get new ones.
All footwear that is dropped off will be sent to Greensole (http://www.greensole.in/web/home), an organization that will then recycle these shoes to convert them into brand new footwear for underprivileged kids. The newer, recycled shoes will then be given out in Surat itself with the help and money of ONGC. Dropping off used footwear will not only benefit the environment but also children in need in our very own city. https://youtu.be/Z95jJk06VZQ
The footwear can be dropped off in your bus with the conductor or in the Drop Boxes one of the following places:
1. Outside Library
2. Outside Atrium
3. Next to Lost and Found
4. Bon Appetit
5. Outside DP wing
6. Outside Sports/Arts Staff Lounge
The Drop Boxes look something like this:
You can drop off the shoes from 6th August to 10th August. Feel free to drop as many as you can.
Please tie up your shoes or slippers together before dropping them off. You may drop off any shoes but NO studs or heels
