Senior School Sports Day 2018-19

Senior School Sports Day 2018-19

Dear Parents,

It’s time for the day filled with fervor and exhilaration, amidst thrills and cheers.

Sports day at FS has always been a hugely competitive but fun event, as the four Houses battle it out for the House trophy.

Considering the feedback received by students and parents, this year we have decided to change the format of sports day where the students will have fun activities and will compete across sections of their respective grades during the sports day.

While the students demonstrate their competitive games talent against the opponents from other teams, we also encourage the best athletic skill in each student. There will be an athletic event, where interested athletes can strive to achieve their goals. During the annual Athletic meet, students across Grade 5 to Grade 12  will get an opportunity to showcase their strength and ability in various athletics. The students who have qualified as finalists will compete for their place.

This change has been brought so that we can ensure maximum participation during the sports day. It is mandatory for all students to attend Sports Day.

The dates for the Sports Day are changed and the new schedule is as follows:

Grade 7 & 8:    12th December 2018 from 8:30 onward

Grade 9 to 12: 11th December 2018 from 8:30 onward

The dates for “Athletic Meet” will be shared soon.

Fountainhead School

P.S- For parents who come for PTC without booking a slot with the respective teacher that they want to meet- they will have to first book the slot by giving details to the admin person seated outside the Grade Wing on the day of PTC. Slots will be given as per the availability in the teacher’s calendar on the same day. This means that if you come to school without booking slots you may not be able to meet the teacher.

Please take a note of below important points for smooth and effective PTC:

  1. Parents are required to book through parent mail id only. Any slots booked through personal id will not be taken into consideration.

  2. Please keep in mind the transition time (time taken to move from the meeting from one teacher to the next).

  3. Students who have participated in FSMUN, their parents will have to book the slots as per their schedule so that students can step out from the committee meeting to meet the teachers if required or else parents can meet the teachers without the student.

  4. Parents have to meet the teachers as per the slots assigned and should not exceed the time. Teachers will not meet the parents in any slot, other than the booked slot.

  5. Teachers will discuss student performance, concerns and further steps to improve academic performance with the parents. Please do not expect the teachers to discuss the whole paper with the parents,

Important Points Regarding School Transport

Important Points Regarding School Transport

Dear Parents,

Kindly refer to the following important points regarding school transport:

  • It is mandatory to show your RFID Parent Pass at the time of pick up from the bus stop.
  • If the card is found to be duplicate a fine of Rs. 500/- will be deducted from the student imprest deposit.
  • Having a duplicate RFID card will also be considered as not having a card.
  • 26th November onwards, student will not be handed over to any parent who comes to collect their child without their RFID card. The child will be brought back to school, and the parents will have to collect their child from the school, in such a case.
  • Under an online system, issues like: student not fastening seat belt, discipline issue or any breach of transport policy will be recorded by the transport staff.  Parents will be informed and necessary action will be taken. Such actions will help ensure safety of students in the bus.
  • In case if a parent parks their vehicle at the stop in such a way that it obstructs the bus parking space, the transport staff of that bus will take a call and the bus might stop few meters away from the actual stop keeping in mind vehicles parked by the parents.
  • Parents cannot board the bus under any circumstances unless a special permission has been taken from school. Parents can report a query or concern directly to school.
  • Water bottles, lunch boxes or any other belongings left in the bus will be collected by the bus staff and will be deposited in the schools’ Lost and Found area. Parent/Student need to check for misplaced belongings in there. The transport staff will not be responsible for this. The belongings deposited in the Lost and Found area will be kept for 2 weeks, after which  they will be donated.
  • From 1st December onward, a response card will be given to the bus staff which can be used by the parents in case of any other concern or issue. The response card will contain the contact details in the form of email id of admin staff / department.

Fountainhead School

Raconteur- Heads Up!

Raconteur- Heads Up!

Dear Raconteurs,

By tomorrow most of you will have received your copy of the school magazine- Raconteur. Happily! Anxiously! Excitedly, we present to you the first edition and hope you will love it too!

Expressing gratitude from the bottom of our hearts we genuinely applaud and appreciate all the effort put in by you for making Raconteur beautiful!

For this issue of Raconteur we received a record number of entries and our joys knew no bounds, but here comes the glitch…. The number of pages in the magazine are limited and we couldn’t fit all the articles at once but at the same time we didn’t want to let your diligence go in vain. So… We decided that we will use remaining articles in the next edition of Raconteur i.e. the April issue of the magazine.

In case you do not find your contribution in this issue you might have to wait a little longer! Thank you for your love, patience and support!

Do keep writing!

Regards,

Raconteur Team
