Minutes of the Meeting

 

Q1 – Difference between IGCSE & DP?

Please find Senior School Program wise details here. Click here.

Q2 – What is PSAT? Importance of PSAT

PSAT stands for Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test. PSAT is attempted to check the ability as well as the strength area. It is a kind of a diagnostic test. PSAT in 10th and 11th helps visualize how well prepared are you for the SAT exam. Now we have PSAT associated with college board.

Our efforts:

  1. Suggestions for online training institutes.
  2. Sharing the results with the teachers.
  3. Asking teachers to work with students in their areas of struggle such as writing skills, etc.

Q3 – Subject information is in acronyms and details are not there.

We have an orientation session for MYP / DP for students and parents (For DP it is when students enter grade 10 & for MYP it starts in grade 6). Handouts for each subject will be given in the session so that the students as well as the parents, are aware of the subject syllabus.We will have more sessions, will keep you informed about it.

For access to the detailed subject syllabus and other information click here.

Q4 – What are the changes school that has made after last year’s results.

  1. A stringent predicted grade policy which enforces students to put in the right efforts from day 1 of the program and not just slog in the end.
  2. Subject selection processes to ensure that students subject choice is compatible with their career choice and current academic achievement.
  3. Result analysis and action plan for the students with parent involvement to ensure that students are on track.
  4. “Submissions Deadline” calendar and follow up systems, prompt communication with parents in case of missed deadlines
  5. Rigorous training to ensure that teachers are equipped to meet the DP requirements. Many of our teachers across subjects are certified IB examiners.

Q5 – Process of International admissions and role of Parents & School Staff in it.

The international admission process starts when the student is in grade 10 with the subject selection and SAT exam preparation. We (school counsellors and coordinators) conduct series of meetings with student and parents to understand student’s interest in career, subjects, their country preference and then accordingly guide them towards shortlisting universities. After this, the country/university specific admission process starts. The school counsellors guide them through different activities to be completed in order to complete the admission process till the offer is received.

Though the entire process is managed by the school; parental involvement cannot be denied. Parents are the primary counsellors. As much as teachers and counsellors do—if not more—parents should play a crucial role in drawing a plan and shaping the career and future of their children. Parents have to encourage their ward to be involved in academic and extracurricular activities, help them to discover their innate talents and skills, develop their knowledge about the world of work, steer the child in the right direction of their career with exposure and expertise.

For detailed Counseling Process – Visit Link

Q6 – We would like to have more options in the field of Arts.

We are also looking at introducing more subjects in Arts field e.g – Film / Product designing / Theatre / Music but due to faculty constraints it is not always possible. We have tried hiring faculties but we have faced issues like the relocation of faculty etc.

Q7 –  IB does not have accounts as a subject, what can be done?

Yes, it does not have an accounting. They learn basic accounting which is required else they are required to focus on DP. Considering this feedback from students of the previous batch, we have planned accounts classes in school during Business Management slot in Diploma program and there will be about 20-25 such classes this year.

Q8 – How much value does private university degree hold, in terms of admission?

Private universities also come under UGC and they have to follow the guidelines prescribed by the UGC. Private universities have better placement opportunities as compared to govt. universities as they have specialized placement cell to guide the students even at the university level.

Private universities tend to be smaller than public universities so the teacher student ratio is also better and they provide a lot of opportunities like internships, international faculties etc. This exposure and learning help the students in further studies or final placements.

Q9 – Have our students gone through competitive examination?

Opting for competitive exams varies from student to student. In principle, students can appear for national/state level entrance exams. The students from our school did appear for NATA – The aptitude test for Architecture.

 

Q10 – Is French – ab initio – in grade 11 is a basic level course?  Is Hindi more scoring?

French ab initio starts in  Grade 11. Currently, Grade 9 & 10 is having French but if students choose French in grade 11 it will start again at a basic level. We cannot opt out it as it is a compulsory requirement for Diploma program.

In case, we have more students opting for French we can have differentiated classes for those who have already studied French and those who are new.

Hindi is scoring as it is more prevalent compared to French in our day to day life. It will be difficult to score in a foreign language as we do not use it for day to day communication.

Q11 – Each university has specific requirements. Why an early understanding of career path is a better option?

Universities have specific requirement that is why it is important to start preparing early and understand the requirements of the universities. Career counselling process, which starts from Grade 7 in our school is with this purpose that the student is well aware of the career choices available and is in a better position to choose the right career path.

Thus, by the time the  child is in Grade 11 he is clear about his choices (in most cases) and admission forms can be filled accordingly. Admission process differs from country to country. For abroad, it starts early (Oct-Nov). Admission process for Indian universities starts late. Complete guidance is given by the school counselors throughout the admission process.

Q12 – What is IB non-regular Diploma? Would all universities recognise this non-regular diploma and regard it as an equal qualification to the regular diploma?IB non-regular Diploma basically means that you can skip one of the group 3 (Humanities) & 6 (Arts)and replace it with three Sciences from group 4 e.g. if you want to pursue medical, you can skip Group 3 & 6 and take three Sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) from Group 4 instead. You can do this if you provide an evidence that this is needed for your further education.The evidence has to be sent to IB 18 months before i.e. till November of grade 11.

DP considers it non-regular as IB believes in learning a wide range of subjects.

Non-regular diploma students also get the same diploma and no where in the certificate it is mentioned non-regular diploma. It is equivalent to getting a regular diploma  as the required criteria of 3 at SL and 3 at HL is met with the core components (Theory of knowledge, Creativity, Activity and Service and Extended Essay).

It is recognized by all universities.

 

Q13 – Why Humanities is being preferred more nowadays as a career choice- Science is not taken by the students? Why don’t students don’t opt for Engineering?

Over the period of time, humanities has become more popular, on international as well as national level, compared to science. Subject choices also depend on where the students come from (background) and availability of subject choices. Nowadays new career avenues have opened up. Students can exercise their choice and opt for their passion.

Computer Sciences – Is there a possibility that we incline students to pursue this? Is it possible that 5yr program from this stage? Can school start with this program in addition to this apart from the curriculum in the school itself?

The future career options like data science/automation / game designing / artificial intelligence will be at par in the upcoming years.

We are inclined towards promoting coding in school so that students can take interest. Options that can be looked upon are, classes on coding after school hours or interested students can make a plan and then work upon it.

School Timings and Transport Details for 2017-18

School Timings and Transport Details for 2017-18

Dear Parents,

Below are the school timings for all the grades for academic session 2017-18:

Grades Re-opens on Timings
Nursery 8th June 2017 9:55 am – 1:45 pm
Jr. KG & Sr. KG 8th June 2017 9:55 am – 3:15 pm
Grade 1 – 6 7th June 2017 7:15 am- 1:45 pm
Grade 7 – 10 & 12 7th June 2017 8:30 am – 3:15 pm
Grade 11 3rd July 2017 8:30 am – 3:15 pm


Please note that there will be some changes in the school timings for Nursery and Jr. KG students for the month of June 2017
only.

Nursery: Timings for the students of Nursery for the first two working days, i.e. 8th June and 9th June will be 9:55 am to 12:00 pm. Students will come to school using the school transport, but will be going home at 12:00 noon. Parents will have to come to school to pick the students for these two days. From 10th June students will come at 9:55 am and leave at 1:45 pm

Junior Kg: Timings for Junior Kg students will be from 9:55 am to 1:45 pm for the month of June (till 30th June). 3rd July onwards timings will be 9:55 am to 3:15 pm.

 

Please note that the new bus routes and their timings have been updated on the school’s website. Kindly refer to the given link for the same. (http://www.fountainheadschools.org/helpdesk/transport-routes/)

During the first few days of school, transport schedule and routes can be a little off track as students are still adjusting to the new schedules. Further, because of rains from June to August there may be a delay in timings. Therefore, we hope for full cooperation from you during this period, till the schedule is settled.

Please find below some important instruction related to the Transport Policy

  • It is compulsory for all students to avail school transport facility.
  • Routes & stops of the buses\van have been fixed for all major catchment areas of the city. Since the school wants to ensure that the time taken from the first stop to the last stop is fixed and limited, new stops / routes cannot be made for every request.
  • Request regarding change of bus stops for few days (upto 4 days) will not be accepted. In case of emergency you will have to pick-up your child from the school.
  • The bus\van will drop and pick up students at the assigned, designated pick-up / drop-off point only.
  • Since the school does not provide gate pick up or drop off facilities, the child may have to walk (and for younger children till age 10, dropped and picked-up) to and from the common convenient place in his / her residence vicinity. The pick up / drop off timings as communicated to you earlier, will be based on trial / dry runs and therefore may get affected due to traffic situation or restriction in vehicular movements. Students are expected to be at the bus stop 10 minutes before their standard bus timings, and if parents/guardians are picking up the child, then they are also requested to be at the stop 10 minutes before the expected arrival time.
  • Switching buses\vans on your own is not allowed.
  • Buses/vans will not stop along the way to pick up students who have missed the bus/van at the designated stop. However, a child who misses the bus at the previous stop may be dropped off at a further stop on the same route. You cannot board a bus of a different route e.g. if your child is coming through bus route no. 15 than s/he can only board the bus from any other stop of route no. 15.
  • Before changing your address, please make sure to identify the stop from all the existing routes and confirm with the school that a seat is available on that route. It is not feasible to create new stops / routes in the middle of the year because the address could be far from the existing routes or else even for a location falling on the route (because every new stop adds to the time taken by the vehicle and we intend to keep a maximum limit for the time taken).
  • In case you want to change the stop, it will be considered only after 30th June, 2017 and subject to the availability of seats in that particular route. If seats are not available then the request will not be accepted.
  • The school takes no guarantee of providing service in an area not covered by the given routes.
  • Request regarding change of bus stops for two/three days only will not be accepted. In case of emergency you will have to pick-up your child from the school.
  • Year on year, the routes and stops are surely going to change as there are shifts and changes in major residential addresses. Therefore, apart from adding new routes, we may also have to modify existing ones, or delete existing ones completely if that may be the need. The school will try not to disrupt an existing stop, but please note that under unavoidable circumstances, the school may have to change the stop location (e.g. Road Block due to SMC road construction/repair work, etc.)
  • Bearer card is compulsory from the first day of the school to pick up your child from the bus stop and the school even if the parents come for the pick up.

Note: Please reach the bus stop in time. The bus stop timings that have been given to you are given after taking into account an adjustment of a three minutes time variation. The bus will reach your stop at any time between the three minutes time slot for your bus stop. Please note that the bus will not wait at your bus stop for the full three minutes but will pick up the students and leave immediately. For example, if the timing for your bus stop is 7:02 to 7:05, then the bus will reach your bus stop anytime between 7:02 to 7:05 (Not wait for end time), pick up the students and leave immediately. The bus will not stop more then 30 second at your bus stop.

Fountainhead School
