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…
