Navratri Celebration

When the “Glitter” of navratri blazed….Our “Ignites” were out with their navratri fumes….Love of celebration was “Kindle” in hearts….They tapped their auspicious feet on the beats to say “I am gonna “Shine” ….The “Dazzle” in their eyes….That “Sparkle” of their smile mesmerizing soul, our “Glimmer” glistened saying ” I am gonna set the fire of gaiety glorification and spree ….And our “Sky” smiled showing VIBGYOR…

Write up for VOX POPULI: THE DEBATING PHENOMENON Inbox x

Dear Students,

Leadership opportunity awaits students from grades 9 and 11!

We are looking to host VOX POPULI: THE DEBATING PHENOMENON at Fountainhead. We are looking for student co-ordinators will work closely with the Events team to liaise with their events team.
Vox Populi:The Debating Phenomenon is led by a young engineering student from Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT).
 
The earliest responses will be given first preference in case there are multiple candidates. The last date to fill this form is 15th November.
 
 
 
ABOUT THE DEBATES
Middle School (Grades 6-8)
Basic Debate (The Rising Intelligentsia)
We often wish to express our opinions but do not get a forum to. We often have
voices but do not have the stage to open up. This two round debate will make
delegates open up and present to the world, their voice, their opinion and will let
them convince people with their viewpoint. This is a team event and each team
should have 2 participants.
 
Just a Minute (Mesmerize the Moment)
Every minute of life is a challenge. JAM is a challenge that has been designed to
make one realize the importance of the minute. This JAM, speakers will have to speak on a certain topic for a minute. Individuals will engage in speaking on a
topic impromptu for this two round debate.
National Debate (Solve India)
India will progress only if Indians progress. Take the first step to progress. Lead
India and solve the problems of the country. Each team will have two participants
and will witness two rounds of verbal battle on an issue of national importance.
 
Environmental/Social Earth (The Responsibility)
Human being is a social animal. Social work paves way for a better society and
environment beautifies the society. With the view of doing our bit, The
Responsibility will be a two round debate where students come in teams of two
and have a verbal battle for a cause.
Press
Constructive Journalism has taken a backend today and advertisements have
taken over the media. Come, exercise your freedom of expression and report the
right proceedings of Vox Populi: The Debating Phenomenon.
High School (Grades 9-12)
Basic Debate (The Rising Intelligentsia)
We often wish to express our opinions but do not get a forum to. We often have
voices but do not have the stage to open up. This three round debate, with teams
of 3 people, will make you open up and present to the world, your voice, your
opinion and will let you convince people. This platform will give you an opportunity to shape people’s opinions and influence them. And in the end, it
hones and brings out the best of your oratory skills, which is the need of the day.
Bilingual Turncoat (Opinion Shastra)
Dual nature of a person, dual accounting, dual policies, we do that all. We have
the pros coming to our minds when we need to speak the cons and vice versa. A
turncoat does just the same. We have beautified this idea of turncoat and twisted
it to make it a bit more interesting. So, a person will have to speak for the motion
in English and has the choice of speaking the against part in Hindi or the regional
language. The against part cannot be spoken in English. In the second round, also the final one, the rule becomes vice versa.
Historic Debate (Ancient Times)
Past shapes our views. We are dependent on the past for our future. We often
learn from history. Let’s recreate history. Let’s change the course of history to
pave way for a better future. We are giving people a chance to live in that era and
discuss the issues related to it. Each team will have two participants and will
witness two rounds of recreated history.
Unconventional Debate (Deliver the Difference)
Conventional and traditional debates have been a part of our daily lives. The
debates happening other than this one too are conventional. Unconventional
debates make you go beyond conventions and have an agenda which involves
supernatural thinking. Each team will have two participants and will witness two
rounds of verbal battle on an unconventional/hypothetical situation.
Press
Constructive Journalism has taken a backend today and advertisements have
taken over the media. Come, exercise your freedom of expression and report the
right proceedings of Vox Populi: The Debating Phenomenon.
Youth Parliament (Our Problems, Our Solutions)
Knesset, Majlis and Sansad, none of them have the youth as a part of it. One of
the reasons is that they haven’t understood the importance of youth. In this
youth parliament, bring out the importance of youth and make the parliaments of
the world realise the importance of the representation of the youth. Make a team
of three and come and solve the problems of the Indian youth.
Declamation (Ideology Matters)
Nehru made a speech, Lincoln made a speech, Jinnah made a speech, bring out
the leader in you and voice yourself. Who knows, the Martin Luther King or the
Narendra Modi inside you might be trying to come out? This declamation, not just
declaim but understand yourself and declaim for your own self. Your style, when
mixed with that of Dhirubhai Ambani or that of Bill Gates, might become the next
ideal declamation speech. Declaim your opinions in this two round event.
Technical Debate (Eureka)
Technology has taken over humans today. We have become dependent on
something we have invented. Eureka will discuss different forms of technology
and you will debate upon its pros and cons and decide whether the technology
should stay or not. This will be a team event where there will be teams of two and
two rounds.
International Issue Debate (Unite for the world)
The world today has become globalized but at the same time, the world today is
in a state of suffering. May it be Syria, Ukraine, Tibet or Kenya, the world is full of
problems. Solve a world problem and we promise to take it up at an international
forum. Make a team of 2 and come and solve the problems of the world.
Financial Symposium (Idea War)
If you know how to play with statistics, shape the GDP, bring down inflation or for
that matter of fact, reduce the expenses of the world, this is your chance. Bring
out the Manmohan Singh and the Kaushik Basu within you. Let the Raghuram
Rajan inside you come up and show the world what it has been ignoring and be
the one to take the world economy to a new level. Bring in your proposition in
teams of 4. Each team should choose a product, make a marketing strategy, have
a banker support, political support and bureaucratic clearance. Teams of 4 which
will include a CEO, banker, politician and a bureaucrat, will defend the proposition
and the best socially motivated idea will be turned into a reality.
Regards,
Fountainhead School.
Career Fair – Canadian Universities

Career Fair – Canadian Universities

Dear Students,

We have arranged a career fair for students who are interested in or are planning to study in Canada. This fair is being arranged in collaboration with Canadian High Commission. At this fair, there will be a delegation of Canadian Universities and colleges coming to our school.

The purpose of this fair is to give interested students an opportunity to interact with the University representatives directly.

Schedule of the day:

The session is basically to brief students about the benefits of studying in Canada and in particular give them further details about the visiting Canadian Universities. The session will start off with a ‘Study in Canada’ session, which will be approximately 10 minutes long and will be followed by one-on-one sessions between the university representatives and the students where students can ask specific questions related to courses they are interested in or other pertinent questions. We are expecting one representative per university from the following institutions.

List of participating institutions:

  1. University of British Columbia
  2. University of Alberta
  3. Mount Royal University
  4. Ryerson University
  5. Simon Fraser University
  6. University of Ottawa
  7. Thompson Rivers University
  8. Memorial University
  9. Laurentian University
  10. Fanshawe College

Students are requested to browse the websites of the universities beforehand and prepare their questions accordingly. The representatives will be handing out a booklet containing pertinent information / a one-page snapshot of each of the participating institutions. They will also be handing out some general handouts which have further information about the benefits of studying in Canada. The universities will themselves carry handouts related to their specific university. Surely, it will be an informative and valuable session for students. Parents of students who are really interested in sending their kids to Canada for further education or if they just want to meet university representatives to get some information are invited to attend the fair.
