Dear Parent,

Fountainhead school welcomes you to the “KALA UTSAV” 2016-17. Students here at FS are eager to showcase their year-long learning and talent.
This year, all the performances will be at different venues and at different timings. Parents are invited to appreciate and enjoy the performance of their child. Parents interested in watching the performances in other segments as well (for other students) can refer to the timings and venues mentioned in the invitation card.
Students will be coming by route given below and will be going back with parents. No transportation will be provided while going back.
It’s a kind request to please bring student’s bearer card along with you and issue a gate pass for your child from Neha Bhatia(AS coordinator) and Shalini Nandkumar(PYP arts team leader). Without card or gate pass students will not be allowed to leave. And parents who are not accompanying their child can hand over the bearer to the accompanying person.
