Timings for the Academic Year 2019-20

Timings for the Academic Year 2019-20

Dear Parents,

Based on internal feedback, we are making a small change in the school timings from June 2019.

Current Timings till May 2019
Grades Starts Ends Duration(Hrs)
Primary Years (Grade 1 to Grade 6) 07:15 am 01:45 pm 06:30
Senior School  (Grade 7 to Grade 12) 08:30 am 03:15 pm 06:45

 

New Timings from June 2019
Grades Starts Ends

Duration

(Hrs)

Duration & Timings Change

Primary Years

(Grade 1 to Grade 6)

07:30 am 02:00 pm 06:30

Same duration as above

Students both arrive and depart 15 mins late

Senior School

(Grade 7 to Grade 12)

08:45 am 03:30 pm 06:45

We believe that a slightly later time will be beneficial for all the stakeholders (students, parents and staff), giving everyone some more time in the morning. The departure is shifted only by 15 mins thereby not causing any significant concerns.

As usual, the bus routes for the new academic year will be shared by the last week of May 2019.

Fountainhead School

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
AS/PS offerings 2019/2020

AS/PS offerings 2019/2020

Dear Parents,

 

As you are aware that Fountainhead School offers a variety of arts and sports segments for students to choose in Art and Design and Personal Sports slot, here is the time for the same. Students who wish to change their PS/ AS for the academic year 2019 – 2020 will have to fill the form mentioning their preference.The last date for filling up the form is 12th April, 2019.

 

In case you wish to continue with the same AS and PS, DO NOT fill the form. 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 want to make changes later or, you can email us at surat@fountainheadschools.org – however that will be possible only if there are seats available.

 

Points to keep in mind:-

 

  • Continuing with the same AS & PS is recommended in most cases so that the student gets time to build skills. However, if after discussion with the respective faculty and student, if you wish to change the AS / PS, please change your preference (Your current choice will already be marked in each of the form in the first preference selection.)
  • If you don’t fill the form, we will consider that student wants to continue with the current AS and PS option only.
  • In case there’s oversubscription (more interested students than seats available) then confirmation will be given in the following order:
  1. 1st preference will be given to students who were already doing this AS / PS and have paid    the AS amount by 20th April (for paid options).
  2. In the case of paid AS options, 2nd preference will be given to students who are new to this AS  and have paid the AS amount by 20th April.
  3. For all other cases, if there are more students who have paid as compared to the seats that we have; for e.g. if 10 students are interested, but we have 5 seats for students, then we will do a draw of lots.
    • Visual art is a paid option from the academic year 2019-20 considering the expense of resources used (paints, canvas, frames, exhibition setup costs).

 

  • AS fee for the paid option is: Gr.3 to 9 Rs. 10000/- Gr10 Rs. 7500/- Gr11-Rs. 5000/-  Gr.12-Rs. 2500/-
  • It is NOT mandatory for Grade 11 and 12 to choose any AS they have an option of either selecting AS from the given options (Cooking, Visual Art and Digital media) or can use the slot for playtime.

 

  • Where AS fee needs to be paid, it needs be done through Paytm by the June 30 2019 as it will not be included in tuition fee. If not paid by then, the student will not be allowed to attend AS.

 

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

Mosquito menace in school

Mosquito menace in school

Dear Parents,

March-April is the time when school experiences maximum mosquito infestation in the premises as it is surrounded by lush green farms filled with stagnated water on all sides and due to temperature increase. As a school, we take precautionary measures but we cannot eliminate the menace completely.

We request all parents to take precautionary steps given below to keep their child away from mosquitoes:

  • Apply mosquito repellent (Odomos) every morning.
  • Use other modes of repellents like patches and roll on

Precautionary measures taken by school:

  • Daily fogging in open areas in the morning
  • Spraying insecticides at regular intervals
  • No stagnant water in school premises

In spite of taking care of all the points mentioned above, there still can be cases of mosquito/ insect bite to children who have sensitive skin or due to allergic reaction.

Dear students,
The preparation for PYP exhibition is at its peak these days and it’s delightful to watch all of you staying determined and committed to your task. Kudos to all of you for keeping your spirit high!
Since this event is a culminating event for your PYP journey, it’s a proud moment for all of the stakeholders to be a part of this and witness it by marking their presence. Hence, we need to work together to create an ‘Invitation’ which will be circulated to the school community as well as other IB schools.
As a part of your homework, you need to create a poster which will encompass the theme of our exhibition. You may choose to include elements related to the following keywords:-
1. The culmination of PYP journey
2. Influencing/persuading people through different mediums
3. UN sustainable development goals
4. Creating a better place to live in
5. Random act of kindness
6. People living in harmony
The poster(s) justifying the theme of our exhibition to the maximum will be featured in our invitation card. So, let your creativity soar and contribute to this design for change. Looking forward to marvelous pieces from you. All the best!
