Night Out scheduled for Early Years on Saturday 20th Jan’ 18

Night Out scheduled for Early Years on Saturday 20th Jan’ 18

Dear Parents,

Night out for Early Years (Nu/JK/SK)  is scheduled on Saturday, 20th January 2018. Students will reach school by 3:10 pm on Saturday, 20th January and leave for home the next morning, Sunday 21st January.

The link for pick up (Saturday, 20th January) & drop off (Sunday, 21st January) routes are mentioned here: Night out Bus Routes

Please refer to the details given below:

Objective:

Night-out is the time for sharing and the children learn differently from how they do within the four walls of the classroom. It is also a way to experience school after the working hours and see how the campus looks on a dark night. It teaches the children to be independent, taking them out of their comfort zone.

Therefore it is our conscious choice to make them sleep in the open; and  be courageous to face the elements of nature. Night out is about appreciating nature as much as it is about enthusiastically having fun. So these two experiences together create a powerful learning atmosphere for the students of which certain discomforts are a part of.

Hence, we urge the parents to prepare their children for being open-minded and experiencing something different from what they get at home for e.g. a warm bed in an AC room, bedtime story, Ipads etc. In addition to all the fun elements involved, they should also reflect on the learning part in the night-out.

We would also like to mention a few concerns that may come up during the night out.

Concerns:

  1. Winters – It will be very cold, especially in the school area (where temperatures are 2-4 degrees lesser than the city) and so sleeping outdoors (in  assembly/skating rink) for children is difficult. (Nursery to G 4, students will sleep in assembly area (Rendezvous), beyond grade 4 students will sleep in skating rink. If the temperature drops below 12 degree, even older students will sleep indoors)
  1. Mosquitoes – We take all possible steps to reduce the number of mosquitoes. However due to our location in the midst of lush green farms with stagnated water (as the crops are paddy and sugarcane) on all sides, we cannot eliminate the mosquito menace completely.

Steps taken:

  • Daily fogging in open areas in the mornings.
  • Spraying of insecticides in open areas on regular intervals.
  • During Night outs, fogging is done in the sleeping area before the students go to sleep.
  • Also, we ask parents to send mosquito repellent cream so that the teacher can help the student apply it, before going to sleep.

In spite of taking care of all the points mentioned above, there still can be cases of mosquito/ insect bite to a few children who have sensitive skin or due to allergic reaction.  In such a case the parent must inform the respective HRT / TL  in advance  so that the teacher can address the issue.

  1. Insects – At night in most months of the year there are lots of insects that are attracted towards artificial lighting. Our toilets are open at the top to allow for light and ventilation. Toilet lights have to remain switched ON from evening till night (so that students and adults can find it easily). This means that insects will get attracted to the lights inside the toilet and many of them will fall dead on the floor as well.  

As mentioned, night out is as much about being close to nature therefore it is necessary that children sleep outdoors. Parents need to ensure that children are properly equipped with clothes and covers to handle the cold (and it is much more colder for the child compared to his/her regular bed). You must make sure the children are really well dressed and carry a good repellent cream as we want them to have a memorable experience sleeping in the outdoors!

All the items should be labeled properly to avoid confusion. Please do not send any expensive toys or other items. The school will not be responsible for any kind of loss.

We encourage every student to be present for the night out, it’s an event that children really enjoy. There will be sufficient number of teachers and support staff to ensure that the students are safe and secure in the school apart from extra security arrangements for the event. The school also appoints a senior staff member (HOS/Principal/ Coordinators/ Admin Managers) as a safety monitor for the night out who ensures that all students are safe.

Thanks,

Fountainhead School.
