Thank you!

Dear Parent,

Thank you very much for the trust and support extended towards us throughout the year!

We are grateful that you not only acknowledged that there is always a scope for improvement, but with your valuable suggestions and feedbacks helped us grow and refine our best practices. Those notes of appreciation and anecdotes shared from time to time certainly boosted our confidence and morale. Our team would not have been complete without you and your constant assistance.  

As a school community, we look forward to continuous support from your end.

Here’s wishing you and your child, all the best for all future endeavours.

All the best!!!

All the best!!!

Dear Students,

It seems only yesterday when you all walked into the grade and it is now time for you to move ahead. As you finally walk out of the Grade 6 wing, we come to the end of yet another year full of learnings, growth, fun, and laughter. It has been a pleasure to see you grow and a privilege to watch your personality unfold day by day.

We hope that we showed and helped you understand that “you matter.” You have immense potential and so you must never stop believing in yourself. Always remember that if you have a vision or a dream, and if you are determined to do something, nothing can stop you from achieving it.  

Always keep in mind the values that you have learned throughout the year. The discipline that you demonstrated. You made us all proud!!! But, there is still a lot more to achieve.

On that note, here’s wishing you, All the best!!! Enjoy your vacation and come back with a zeal to learn, explore and discover!!!

Regards,

Grade 6 team

PYP Exhibition Invitation – 2019

PYP Exhibition Invitation – 2019

Dear Parents,

A significant event in the lives of our Grade 6 students, the PYP Exhibition, is just around the corner. The students have synthesized the essential elements of the PYP and have carried out in-depth research on issues pertaining to personal, local and global significance.  
 
The Central idea of their research is “We can influence people through expressions of our ideas and opinions” under the Transdisciplinary theme, “How we express ourselves.”
 
On behalf of the students of Grade 6, we cordially invite you to come and feel the influence while our learners express their ideas and opinions to create a better and more sustainable future for us to live in. 
Regards,
Fountainhead school
Change of Homeroom Teacher – Progress

Change of Homeroom Teacher – Progress

Dear Parents,

“Changes are inevitable and not always controllable. What can be controlled is how you manage, react to and work through the change process.”Kelly A. Morgan

This is to bring to your notice that there will be a change in your child’s homeroom teacher. Due to unavoidable circumstances, Ms Nirja Thakkar will be moving on and her class (Progress) will now be taken over by Ms Nisreen Kanchwala.

We realize that this change may be unsettling for the students but I assure you that Ms Nisreen is extremely excited to begin working with your children. I am confident that if we all work together to create a wonderful learning experience for the children, then this transition will surely be a smooth one.

It gives me immense pleasure to introduce Ms Nisreen Kanchwala who is a skilled and qualified teacher. She has pursued her Graduation in Chemistry along with her Bachelors and Masters in Education from Mumbai University. She has joined the Fountainhead family with immense experience of 12 years in teaching primary years in some of the reputed international schools of Mumbai and Dubai. She has a record of being a top rank holder throughout her school life which has developed her passion for teaching and learning innovations. She is committed to motivating her learners towards excellence.

On behalf of the Grade 6 team, here’s wishing Ms Nirja, all the best for her future endeavours and a warm welcome to Ms Nisreen Kanchwala.

Regards,

Rachana Patel

PYP Exhibition Orientation

PYP Exhibition Orientation

Dear Parent,

As it is rightly said by Ralph Marston, “Prepare far enough in advance, and just about anything is possible.”

Inspired by it; here we are. The clock is ticking and we have just 97 days to go. It is time for us to pull our socks up and start planning. Wondering what I am referring to??? You guessed it right!!!

It is time to get started and prepare for the PYP Exhibition!

The PYP Exhibition is a demonstration of what it means to be a PYP student, applying what they have learned and who they have become throughout their journey in the PYP. This involves students working collaboratively to conduct an in-depth inquiry into real life issues, problems or topics of their interest. Work on something that can change the world for the better! It is their moment to take action!

All of this will not be possible without your help and support. Your support, suggestions and ideas have always been valuable to us. Once again, it is time for us to collaborate, in order to bring out the best in our learners.

As parents, it is you who can create the environment and experience in which learning, inquiry and exploration would happen. For this, it is imperative for you to have a fair idea not only about the exhibition but also about your role and how best you can help your children in this journey of theirs.

On Friday, 18th January 2019, we have scheduled an orientation session for you to understand the PYP Exhibition, your role, as well as to know what it would be like, for the students.  

Yet again, it is time for us to join hands and let the adventure begin!!! Looking forward to seeing you all.

Night out – Activity details

Night out – Activity details

Dear students,

One of the much-awaited events of our grade is around the corner. It’s time to brace ourselves to collaborate with each other to add yet another joyous moment to our book of memories.
As you all are aware, this time we will be staying in school for our night-out with the students of grade 2 and grade 4. Hence, to break the barriers of communication, we have decided to provide you with an opportunity to interact with them. This interaction will be done in the form of an activity (30 mins) which is to be planned by you.
Please go through the following pointers which will help you to understand the agenda well:
1. You will be grouped with 5 other students. Out of these, two students will belong to grade 2 and two students to grade 4. The 5th student will be from your buddy class (Refer to the link given below). You will be working with this buddy to plan an engaging yet interesting activity for the other 4 students. 
2. The activity will go on for half an hour on the day of night-out.
3. Each group will be allotted an area for this activity.
4. The venues will be supervised/monitored by the adults.
5. In case you need any resource for this activity, let your homeroom teacher know about it in advance.
6. Few examples of such engagements:- Read-a-loud, Drawing/sketching, Best out of waste, DIYs, taboo (self-created), board games etc.
7. You need to plan this activity in such a way that all the students in your group understand it well so as to be an active participant.
8. Ensure that you provide clear instructions in an easy-to-understand language to these kids.

Regards,

Grade 6 team
