Paradigm shift invites participants for its fifth edition of Little Orators and tenth edition of Young Orators for the coming season

Paradigm shift invites participants for its fifth edition of Little Orators and tenth edition of Young Orators for the coming season

Dear All,
The new world order requires youngsters to be ready with a set of skills which the earlier generations did not require. The world in which our children will work in the very near future will require them to articulate their ideas. An idea, a thought, an argument, which a youngster things about must be communicated and sold to the world, lest it withers and dies. The ability to express oneself on stage in front of an audience is a time-tested method of expressing these ideas that need to be told. In the era of communication and competition, it also is a necessary skill. In keeping with this need, Paradigm Shift has invited participants from our school for its next edition of Little Orators and Young Orators.
Little Orators (Grades 7 and 8) – a total of 5 participants from our school will be sent to this event
 
Young Orators (Grades 9 and 11) – a total of 8 participants from our school will be sent to this event
 
Since the number of participants to the event is restricted, auditions to select participants will be held during the Home Meal break on Wednesday (29th Nov) for grades 7 and 8; and Thursday (30th Nov) for grades 9 and 11. Students are expected to bring their snack boxes with them for the auditions (in case their turn exceeds the break time, the teachers for the next slot will be sent a note).
Selected Students will be sent to a workshop (which is mandatory). Little Orators workshop will be on 2nd December and Young Orators on 16th December.
Dates for the Semi-finals and Final round will be sent at a later date by the organizers.
Teachers in charge (you can send your names to these teachers by end of day tomorrow): Pinky ma’am for grades 7 and 8, Nikita ma’am for grade 9 and Subhalaxmi ma’am for grade 11.
Auditions will be conducted by all 3 teachers for all grades.
The topic for the audition (speech for not more than 2 to 3 mins per person):
Grades 7 and 8 – It is an honor to be an Indian because…
Grades 9 and 11 – Freedom of Speech is a Myth
Criteria for marking: A- Content(5 Marks), B- Execution (Enthusiasm, Pronunciation, Pace and Voice Modulation) (10 marks), C-Language (5 marks).
 
Venue: Near the Coordinator’s Office
Time: 10.10 to 10.30 am
Dates: 29th Nov (Grades 7 and 8); 30th Nov (Grades 9 and 11)
Please note: Students who request auditions after the said date and time will not be entertained.

Regards,

Fountainhead School.

Upcoming Important Events – Grade 6

Upcoming Important Events – Grade 6

Dear Parent,

Pull up your sleeves and get ready for active participation in your child’s education. We at Fountainhead School believe that parents play an important role in their child’s learning journey. The parents and the school collaborate to make it happen for the students.

We have number of events which the parents need to attend in this month and the next. We have tried to space out these events so that they are not back to back or overlapping with each other. For the same reason we have rescheduled the MYP orientation from 29th November to 27th December. (This orientation is scheduled for the parents, who were not able to attend it on 11th October, 2017)

Please block your calendar for these dates as we expect all Grade 6 parents to be a part of these very important events:

30th November 2017 (Thursday) Grade 6 PTM & Session by Dr. Swati Vinchurkar (Details)
12th December 2017 (Tuesday) Sports Day
27th December 2017 (Wednesday) MYP Orientation (For further details check the mail sent to the parents, who were not able to attend it on 11th October, 2017

Night out of Grade 6 on Saturday, 2 December 2017

Night out of Grade 6 on Saturday, 2 December 2017

Dear Parents,

Night out for Grade 6  is scheduled on  Saturday, 2nd December 2017. Students will reach school by 3:10 pm on Saturday (2nd Dec’17) and leave for home the next morning (Sunday 3rd Dec’17)

The link for both pick up (2nd Dec’17 Saturday) & drop off (3rd Dec’ 17, Sunday) routes are mentioned below.

Link for pickup and drop off routes: 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 child 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, i-pads 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 (where temperature is 2-4 degrees lesser than the city) therefore 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.
  2. 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 & 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 once again done in the sleeping area  before the students go to sleep.
  • Also, we ask parents to send mosquito repellant cream with the child so that the teacher help the student apply it on the body before going to sleep.

Inspite 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  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 outdoors!

Please note that students are not allowed to bring any junk/packed food to school for night out. Mobiles/ipods/ipads are strictly not allowed and will be confiscated, if found.

All the items should be labeled properly to avoid confusion. Please do not send any expensive toys or other items with the children. 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 and savour. 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  in all ways.

 

Thanks,

Fountainhead School.
