PS selection 2019-20

PS selection 2019-20

Dear Parents,

 

As you are aware, Fountainhead School gives a lot of emphasis to Arts and Sports. To this end, the school offers a variety of arts and sports segments for students to choose in what is called their AS and PS slot.  The school envisions that every child will choose one art and one sport specialty and pursue this stream consistently over a few years to achieve a certain level of competency in it. AS is available as an option from Grade 3 onwards and PS is available from Grade 2 onwards. We are sending the form to confirm your child’s selection for the academic year 2019-20.

The form will be available at http://parents.fountainheadschools.org/ and the Nucleus Mobile app (through your parents login).

 

Kindly read the choices available for your child’s grade and then fill the form in consultation with your child. You can submit the form only once. If you still want to change the preference later, you will need to send an email to surat@fountainheadschools.org. However, such requests will be put at a lower priority over those who have filled their preference through the form.

 

  • Kindly fill up both the AS & PS selection form.
  • Everyone will need to mark two preferences in case the first preference is oversubscribed.
  • We will try to expand the offerings wherever the demand is high but there will be some limitations. On the other hand, in case of offerings where there are few takers, we may have to remove some offerings.
  • In case there’s oversubscription (more interested students than seats available) then confirmation will be given in the following order:
  1. Have paid the AS amount by 20th April (for paid options).
  2. After considering the payment status (if required), if there are more students than seats, then the allocation will be done by draw of lots (applies to both AS & PS).
  • Where there are new offerings for a grade, a brief description has been added. In case you wish to know more, please write to us at surat@fountainheadschools.org
  • The last date for filling up the form is 12th April, 2019, after which, if the form remains unfilled, thet AS/PS selection will be allocated where possible, otherwise the school will assign any of the options based on availability.
  • The AS fee needs to be paid (where applicable) by PayTM by June 30th, 2019,  as it will not be included in the tuition fees, otherwise the student will be asked to stop attending that particular AS.
