New Transport Routes for 1:45 pm (9th April to 12th April)

Dear Parents,

As informed in the previous blog post, timings for the next academic year have been changed for Grade 1 to Grade 6 but before finalizing this change for Early Years, we need to do a trial run for the EY students.

Therefore, all EY students will be leaving at 1:45 pm (along with the students of Grades 1-6) from 9th April to 12th April. Kindly click on the following link to know the new stop timings.

New Routes (9th April to 12th April)

Note that there will be no change in the morning route, i.e. 7:15 am

Proposed Timings for the Academic Year 2019-20

Proposed Timings for the Academic Year 2019-20

Dear Parents,

As informed earlier, the timings for EY are likely to change from the next academic year (June 2019)

TIMINGS Starts Ends Duration (hrs)
Current 09:55 am 03:15 pm 05:20
Proposed 08:45 am 02:00 pm 05:15

 

Before finalizing this change, we need to conduct a trial run for EY students. Therefore, all EY students will be leaving at 1:45 pm (along with students of Grades 1-6) from 9th April to 12th April. They will come to school by their usual 9:55 am route. Therefore, students will have a shorter day for a week. Kindly click on the following link to know the new stop timings.

New Routes (9th April to 12th April)

We recognize that this may cause an inconvenience to you by altering your regular schedule. However, this trial run is required for us to get the logistics right before we move to the new timings next year.

Of course, the timings given above will not affect students in  Sr. KG as the Grade 1 timings will be from 07:30 to 02:00 pm. However, they will also be participating in the trial run because only then will we have the full strength of the EY along with Grades 1-6.

After the trial run is over, we will be finalizing the timings and announce the same by 25th April. The bus routes for the new academic year will be shared as usual, by the last week of May 2019.

Fountainhead School

Students both arrive and depart 15 mins late

Senior School

Mother Tongue Assembly

Mother Tongue Assembly

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. – Nelson Mandela

Dear parent,

We take immense pride in conserving and celebrating language of every ethnicity which is one of the most distinctive quality of our nation, being entirely multilingual. Hence, to take the pledge forward and educate today’s generation about the  importance of our native tongue, we schedule Mother Tongue sessions, in order to teach students not just about their mother tongue but also its significance in one’s identity.

This term we will be celebrating mother tongue assembly with the staff and homeroom teachers. We request parents to help students with details of their respective mother tongue. Students will be sharing insights of their mother tongue with the classmates. They can:

(1) Recite a rhyme/sing a song in their mother tongue/home language.
(2) Say few sentences in their mother tongue like introducing themselves, saying their name, etc.
(3) Sharing common words of different languages.

Date: 12th March 2019

Time: 10:00 am to 11:00 am

Important Note:

  1. Students can come in civil/coloured dress representing their culture.
  2. It would be great if they could bring a cultural dish to have during their Home Meal Break.
  3. Post the assembly slot, students are expected to change to their school uniform.

We want our students to listen to their mother tongue and cherish it, hence, your cooperation in helping the students in building a multi-cultural environment will be a great help to the Fountainhead community.

Regards,

Fountainhead School
