Clarifications about School timings and Elections-related holidays

Clarifications about School timings and Elections-related holidays

Dear Parents,

This note will address two recent announcements about the change in timings and the election-related holidays.

 

1.Regarding the change in timings of the school:

We delayed the start of the PYP and SS programs by 15 min. In response to this change, we have not received any response from the vast majority of parents.

However, we have received requests from 9 students (5 parents) for a swap in timings of PYP (Grade 1 to 6) and SS (Grade 7 to 12). The reason given is that a swap of the timings will give the PYP students more time to sleep and the SS students more time in the afternoon and evening for activities and coaching classes. We have maintained through the years that the reason for starting the SS later is that as children enter into the teen years, they tend to sleep later for multiple reasons (studying, social, biological). Therefore asking them to wake up early is likely to have adverse effects of their health.

While we don’t see any significant advantage with the swap in timings, we see consequential disadvantages of an upheaval of schedule for all the students including the vast majority who have not reacted to this change as well the loss of sleep and impact the health of SS students.

Therefore, we are sticking to the change as announced. We had also proposed a change in the timings for the Early Years students pending logistics for which we ran trial routes from April 9 to 12. We are happy to announce that the trial was successful. These are the final timings for students next year:

 

New Timings from June 2019
Grades Starts Ends

Early Years*

(Nursery to Sr. KG)

08:45 am 02:00 pm

Primary Years

(Grade 1 to Grade 6)

07:30 am 02:00 pm

Senior School

(Grade 7 to Grade 12)

08:45 am 03:30 pm

*Nursery and Jr KG students will be leaving earlier in the initial period. A separate note will be sent to the relevant parents for the same.

 

2. Regarding the holidays on 22-23 April due to Lok Sabha Elections:

The holidays are as announced for 22-23 April for students. The school buses have been requisitioned by the district authorities for the conduct of elections for both days (for logistical management of the EVMs and the election staff). Therefore both days are holidays. For the PYP and Early Years, we chose not to compensate (unlike previous years) because it’s the end of the year and curriculum requirements have been met already. For SS, there’s no need to compensate because the exam schedule was changed to accommodate the 2 holidays. We are clarifying this so that the reasoning is clear and that a precedent isn’t assumed for similar future events.

 

Regards,

Fountainhead School

PS selection 2019-20

PS selection 2019-20

Dear Parents,

 

As you are aware, Fountainhead School gives a lot of emphasis to Arts and Sports. To this end, the school offers a variety of arts and sports segments for students to choose in what is called their AS and PS slot.  The school envisions that every child will choose one art and one sport specialty and pursue this stream consistently over a few years to achieve a certain level of competency in it. AS is available as an option from Grade 3 onwards and PS is available from Grade 2 onwards. 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 still want to change the preference later, you will need to send an email to surat@fountainheadschools.org. However, such requests will be put at a lower priority over those who have filled their preference through the form.

 

  • Kindly fill up both the AS & PS selection form.
  • Everyone will need to mark two preferences in case the first preference is oversubscribed.
  • We will try to expand the offerings wherever the demand is high but there will be some limitations. On the other hand, in case of offerings where there are few takers, we may have to remove some offerings.
  • In case there’s oversubscription (more interested students than seats available) then confirmation will be given in the following order:
  1. Have paid the AS amount by 20th April (for paid options).
  2. After considering the payment status (if required), if there are more students than seats, then the allocation will be done by draw of lots (applies to both AS & PS).
  • Where there are new offerings for a grade, a brief description has been added. In case you wish to know more, please write to us at surat@fountainheadschools.org
  • The last date for filling up the form is 12th April, 2019, after which, if the form remains unfilled, thet AS/PS selection will be allocated where possible, otherwise the school will assign any of the options based on availability.
  • The AS fee needs to be paid (where applicable) by PayTM by June 30th, 2019,  as it will not be included in the tuition fees, otherwise the student will be asked to stop attending that particular AS.
