Let’s “Ignite” The Imagination, Creativity And Wonder!!

Dear parents,

A hearty welcome to all of you! I, Suchi Dakoria am eager to start the new academic session 2018-19. I have been with Fountainhead School since 2013. I am very excited to have the opportunity to be your child’s homeroom teacher. I assure you that our children will have a safe, secure and stimulating environment. As your child’s teacher, I am only a part of your child’s academic future. Parental encouragement and involvement along with student cooperation and participation are vital components of educational growth. I encourage you and your child to join me in this academic endeavour.

I would like to share with you the first day of Senior Kg. Ignite. The students were welcomed to their new class with a small token of love(star) from our end. They settled into the class after performing their routines and procedures. They had fun playing the ice-breaking activity, which helped them to know their teacher, didi and friends better. The students along with me discussed the routines and procedures for the class. They enjoyed their school meal and also had a gala time while painting.

As it’s truly said, time flies away when you’re having fun, and it passed by too quickly. We enjoyed the whole day and I look forward to getting to know and learn from your child!

Sharing a few glimpses of the first day with you…

Regards,

Suchi

Dear Parent,

Why is Service important?

  • Helps students apply academic, personal and social skills to improve the community.
  • Develops an awareness to make a positive difference in the life of others
  • Encourages responsible citizenship by increasing students understanding of the world.
  • Allows the student to discover new skills, talents, and interests
  • Helps students develop as leaders who take initiative.

Details of the programme:

This year also students will be involved in community service programme as last year. It will not be mandatory for all, students who are interested in volunteering for the programme will have to submit the given form by 17th June 2018.
