We thank each one of you for sharing your thoughts, feelings and ideas and making our school magazine a literary piece of art! A loud shout out to all who made it possible!

Our ideas keep changing, developing and modifying with each passing moment and we don’t want any of these to just drift by.

So let’s get going! We want to ensure that parents and students get optimum time to write for their favorite magazine.

So, the number of days for submission and the number of topics have been reduced for this time.

We have shortlisted a few topics to give you a starting point, but you are free to write on any topic of your choice. You can choose to compose a poem, write an article or create a poster/artwork. Parent articles are welcome in Hindi/Gujarati as well. (No hard copies will be accepted)

University Fair @ 3rd Dec, 2018

University Fair @ 3rd Dec, 2018

Dear Parents,

We have arranged a University Fair for the students of Grade 10, 11 and 12 where 16 universities from India, USA, UK, and Canada are participating. At this fair, there will be representatives from the Universities and colleges coming to our school. The aim is to give interested students an opportunity to interact with the University representatives directly.

The fair is also open for the parents of Grade 7-9 as well considering that the students might not be clear about what to pursue and from where but parents will have some idea about it. This interaction will help you in understanding the requirements of the universities in general.

Please note that meeting the university representative does not mean that your child is bound to take admission to these universities. The purpose of the same is to get immediate personalized responses to your questions, finding out more about the programs and funding opportunities, and getting an idea of the application process – all reasons to attend in person, rather than just stick to online research. Attending a university fair is also an opportunity to get a better idea of what university admissions officers are looking for. Admission officers share what they look for when assessing applications, what common mistakes to avoid, and how to go the extra mile to make yourself stand out among others applying for the same seat in the university!

Date of the Event: 3rd Dec, 2018

Venue: Stall set up by Universities – Hippodrome
Time: 1.30 pm to 3.05 pm (Please reach the venue on time).

The following universities are participating in the fair:

Schedule of the day:

There will be stalls for these universities where you can meet the representatives and can ask specific questions related to the courses that the university is offering or any other detail about the university. We are expecting one representative per university from these institutions.

You may want to browse the websites of these universities beforehand and prepare questions accordingly. The representatives will be handing out information material/handouts about the courses and the benefits of studying in their universities. Surely, it will be an informative and valuable session.

Parents of students who are really interested in sending their child(ren) to these universities for further education or if they just want to meet university representatives to get some information are invited (strongly recommended) to attend the fair with prior information (send an email at career.counselor@fountainheadschools.org).
