Online Game alert (Blue Whale)

Online Game alert (Blue Whale)

Dear Parent,

As per the recent news in media, 4-5 incidents of young kids committing suicide have been reported and they have been linked to the game, Blue Whale.

Please read the attached circular issued by UNICEF to educate parents and teachers about Blue Whale game.

If you do think or suspect that your child is participating in Blue Whale, please ensure the following:

  • First of all, DO NOT PANIC and under no circumstances take it out on your child. A child participating in this game is already under significant trauma and mishandling the situation would only worsen it.
  • Talk to your child in a calm and patient manner.
  • Acknowledge the fact that they need help of a professional and that it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure they get that help.
  • Inform the law enforcement agencies as soon as possible.
  • Inform school principal and update them about the details. It is important for the school authority to know about such instance. Do involve them for guidance and support.

Knowledgeable Parents of FS (KP of FS) – Registration Form

Knowledgeable Parents of FS (KP of FS) – Registration Form

Dear Parents,

 

Fountainhead runs three IB programs, and that parents often have doubts and concerns about the same, especially regarding MYP & DP as that affects school/college admissions.

Although as a school, a lot of communication and data has been shared with parents regarding such concerns, there are some (or many) parents who may still have doubts/concerns for the following reasons:
– They haven’t accessed the information that we’ve shared.
– They don’t approach the school to clarify their doubts and instead rely on information networks such as friends or Whats app groups for information, which can be misleading at times.

To overcome this issue of lack of effective communication from our end, we are inviting some parents from each section to become well-informed parents (Knowledgeable Parents of FS) who will have the following roles:

Heedful – To make a conscious effort to go through information relevant shared by the school with all the parents through various means such as website, blog, social media etc.

Contributor – In addition, to attend information meetings, which will focus on a few important things and will be typically run by the school’s leadership team. We expect there to be about one session of 2 hours each month.

Communicator – Respond to other parents’ queries which we have addressed in our detailed sessions (we will put up all the information on our website). This response can be in any method – through social media, face to face, or even asking the school to arrange information sessions for a set of parents.

Collaborator – Bring to the school’s notice, major or minor concerns that you can’t address yourself because of lack of information/understanding, or because the issues are student-specific in nature.

To keep you updated we will be creating a Whatsapp group namely ” KP of FS”
Guidelines to be followed to be the part of the group are as follows:

Group will only be active between 08:00 AM to 02:30 PM on working days only.

The query raised should be general (E.g of queries – Admissions / Predicted Grade / Results / Examinations) and not child specific (For child specific queries you have other forums to connect with the teacher in charge directly).

The queries raised in the group will be addressed in up to 3-4 days (some queries may take more time).

The group is to be used strictly for school information purpose. No forwarded messages / wishing messages like Good morning/ festival greetings / Other chatting allowed in the group and people doing so will be given a warning once and will be removed from the group the 2nd time.

If you are ready to become the representative of the parents you are welcome to be the part of the email / WhatsApp group. We are not looking at fixed number for these parents, but we hope that there will be at least 2-3 parents per section so that there are sufficient people who can respond. We will be happy to include as many parents as interested.
