Raconteur- Heads Up!

Raconteur- Heads Up!

Dear Raconteurs,

By tomorrow most of you will have received your copy of the school magazine- Raconteur. Happily! Anxiously! Excitedly, we present to you the first edition and hope you will love it too!

Expressing gratitude from the bottom of our hearts we genuinely applaud and appreciate all the effort put in by you for making Raconteur beautiful!

For this issue of Raconteur we received a record number of entries and our joys knew no bounds, but here comes the glitch…. The number of pages in the magazine are limited and we couldn’t fit all the articles at once but at the same time we didn’t want to let your diligence go in vain. So… We decided that we will use remaining articles in the next edition of Raconteur i.e. the April issue of the magazine.

In case you do not find your contribution in this issue you might have to wait a little longer! Thank you for your love, patience and support!

Do keep writing!

Regards,

Raconteur Team

Important Note: MYP Interdisciplinary Unit

Important Note: MYP Interdisciplinary Unit

Dear Parents,

In IB MYP, one of the key features is its emphasis on the interdisciplinary teaching and learning. This is the process by which students come to understand ways of knowing from two or more disciplines or subject group and integrate them to create new understanding.

In each year of the programme, MYP schools are responsible for engaging students in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups. In Grade-10, students will appear for the onscreen examination of Interdisciplinary Unit which is an essential component and is marked externally.

To meet this requirement, Interdisciplinary unit study will be conducted in Grade 7, Grade 8 & Grade 9 during Term – 2 of this academic session from 26th November – 12th December 2018.

Kindly note that there will be a change in the regular time-table during this period of execution of the Interdisciplinary unit.  Students will attend AS, PS, Arts, PHE, and Language Acquisition slots as per the timetable of a respective section.  Besides this, Grade 9 students will also attend the Optional subject and Additional subject classes as per the timetable during this period. Rest of the slots on a given day will be dedicated to the teaching of the interdisciplinary unit.

Since it is a separate subject for which the students will be getting levels and a Grade that will be a part of their report in the final term, it is important that the students attend the school regularly during the aforementioned dates.

Regards,

Fountainhead School

Hereby sharing feedback from the last workshop we had with Grade 4, 5 and 6 parents: 
 
– It was quite a valuable session. Lots of gratitude for the same. Also, lots of applauds to the school team to proactively organizing such session. Genuinely obligated to all of you. 
 
– I really enjoyed being a part of the workshop and the tips shared by the counselors will definitely help us in reflecting on our parenting skills and styles. Listening from other moms also gave me comfort that I’m not the only one pulling my hair apart 😉 Thank you for the workshop! The effort is appreciated.
 
– It was indeed a fruitful session. Got a chance to recap, re-look and rethink about how I am as a parent and also on my parenting style. Having a discussion with other parent made me feel that I am not the only one and got few tips from them regarding how they are handling similar issues. 
 
– Parents were sharing their concerns and experiences about their child and how they deal with the situations and what doesn’t work…

Tech Radiance Android App Development Results

Tech Radiance Android App Development Results

Dear Parents,

Techradiance’19 in association with IIT, Bombay had conducted a workshop on Android Apps Development where students from Grades 7 to 12 had participated to learn the basic concepts of app development in our school on 29th and 30th September 2018. The session for students began with learning to install Android Studio and jdk on their respective laptops. They learnt to enable developer options on their Mobile phones and installing virtual devices as well to check the functionality of their apps on mobile devices.

After gaining some confidence, students developed their own app (sending SMS, calling contacts, playing audio and video, registration form etc.) and presented to the facilitators as a part of the competition. Students had come up with creative ideas of app making. Students found it very interesting and were actively involved in working with the Android Studio software. It was quite surprising and interesting to see students missing on their lunch to complete their tasks. Participants without much background knowledge of Java were able to make basic apps of good quality.

The winners qualified for next round of National Level Championship are as under:
– Piyush Maheshwari
– Nishil Kapadia
– Arushi Bhansali
– Ananya Jain
– Jaymit Jinjala
– Chavi Bansal
– Prasham Dhupia
– Krishna Madhogaria
– Khush Goyal
– Samyak Jain
– Utsav Kothari
– Vatsal Mehta
– Ekansh Jain
 
Congratulations to everyone. 
 
We will update you with the further communication for the championship which is tentatively scheduled in March’19.
Regards,
Fountainhead School.
