RUST
The boy stood scantily-clad
Dressed in tatters,surrounded by rags,
He stood and stared at the ever expansive blue sky.
Tears danced on h is face and crept in his eyes.
 
No one knew why he cried
Why a part of his soul had been stabbed and let die.
But all who saw always assumed.
For he was a poor one; a son of a goon.
 
"The poor boy his stomach must hurt",
Cried a woman who lived far above;
In buildings fifteen floors stacked
Where onlookers stood and clacked and clacked.
 
"This is his karma, the poor child.
The crimes of his past life must not have been mild.
Now he must live to atone."
Whispered an old man in an unforgiving tone
 
The old man's god was a cruel one.
Why for the sins of a man, a child must burn?
But that was still not the reason he wept
As the clouds in the sky slowly crept.
 
"Ravi beta go give him this roti."
ordered a woman ;her kindness noting
In the eyes of all those who looked
For even kindness this small the entire world shook.
So Ravi went to meet the boy
After his mother had nagged and annoyed,
And he saw the boy wet with tears
offering the roti, his heart now only mechanical gears.
 
He felt no pity for the infant.
His humanity was destroyed in an instant,
To protect it or it would have bled.
In his life who had he ever helped?
 
"Oh boy why do you cry?"
He asked in a voice stale and dry.
"I have brought you food, your hunger fed
Eat it now so your stomach can mend."
 
"Thank you dearly sir but food is not why i cry.
I cry at the ever expansive blue sky;
Which looks on unaffected as the people say
Unbeknownst to human suffering, happy and gay."
 
"But what if the sky falls in love,
with creatures such as us; rude and rough.
What if it cherishes us.
And watches us waste away and rust."

Green Initiatives

The school has taken significant steps to reduce its carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner environment. This is a way of teaching our students the importance of taking little steps towards creating a better world. GREEN TEEN- The Eco Club in school was created in the year 2011. Students of classes VI-XII are part of this club and are working passionately towards protecting the environment. The members of GREEN TEEN CLUB have vowed to further initiatives taken up by the school and do their best towards conservation of environment. Few projects undertaken are:

SOLAR PANELS
 
The school has installed solar panels to generate electricity. This has made the school self sufficient in its energy requirements, and now it is no longer dependent on BSES for its electricity. Rather, all extra electricity produced is channeled to BSES and this helps raise our credit rating with them. Our students are conscientiously switching off all electrical appliances when not in use

PAPER RECYCLING
 

  • paper1.jpg
  • paper2.jpg
  • paper3.jpg
  • paper4.jpg
  • paper5.jpg
  • paper6.jpg

  Our school is a ‘NO POLYBAG’ zone. The paper recycling plant in the school is put to its optimum use by recycling all the waste paper generated in the classrooms, offices and other areas of the school. These recycled papers are then used to make folders, envelopes, cards, paperbags etc. which are then used as gifts and invites for various school events. The students also motivate the shopkeepers of the C- block market, Vasant Vihar to use these products made by them. The folders, book marks, envelopes and other such interesting items are also sold in the stalls put up by the students on the parent-teachers interaction days; the proceeds of which are used in the donation funds of the various social initiatives taken up by the school.
 
NO TO SINGLE-USE PLASTICS IN THE SCHOOL
Single-use plastics, or disposable plastics, are used only once before they are thrown away or recycled. These items are things like plastic bags, straws, coffee stirrers, soda and water bottles. Thus as an initiative to protect our environment we at TIS have taken a decision that the cafeteria  will not serve food in plastic plates and glasses nor will plastic cutlery be used. All single use plastic items have been stopped. Children are encouraged to carry their own lunch boxes for buying food from the cafeteria. The school is also a No Polybag Zone. Neither students nor teachers carry polythene bags to school.
Students carrying out an online challenge “Tide Turner Plastic Challenge” on 17 April 2020

Our students in association with WWF-India, have been carrying out an online challenge “Tide Turner Plastic Challenge” in partnership with UN Environment Programme to engage youth in conversation, action and advocacy around reducing the use of single-use plastic from our day to day life.

The Tide Turners Plastic Challenge is a global youth movement to fight plastic pollution around the world. It is designed to inspire young adults to reflect upon their plastic consumption, discover solutions to reduce this consumption, and lead change in their homes, communities, institutions and offices. The challenge involves completing three levels.

Our students have successfully completed the entry level. For the leader level Debshata Choudhury organised an online seminar on "Plastic waste-management" with an aim to inspire students to measure their plastic footprint. The seminar was conducted by Dr. Madhusree Banerjee ,Senior Consultant at The World Bank. Her primary interest is in Social and Community Development.  The seminar was attended by the following students  Gurmaan Singh Sandhu, Garv Gupta, Aayushi Dasgupta ,Snigdha Goel,,Hrehaan Ahuja and Pratyush Saini  from class X.

WATER CONSERVATION
 
RAIN WATER HARVESTING PITS

An initiative of the Eco club of the school, the rain water harvesting pits started on a small scale in the year 2000. There are 14 rainwater harvesting pits on campus that have helped in increasing the water table of the region.

WATER BANKS

Taking a step further in our attempt to conserve water, we have put water collection tubs in inner atrium . At dispersal time, the students empty the unused water from their water bottles into these tubs which is then used to water the plants in the school premises

E-WASTE DISPOSAL
 
E waste  

The GREEN TEENS collaborated with Nokia in 2012 and started collecting E-waste such as mobile phones, chargers, keyboards, headphones etc. This waste is picked up by Nokia to be disposed off in a scientific manner. Our school has been conferred with the ‘Platinum Status’ for its contribution to ‘Nokia Planet ke Rakhwale’ campaign for collecting large amount of E-waste. Since then, the gangs of Green Teen has been collecting E-waste on a regular basis.

Our school collaborated with Namo E waste management to contribute their bit towards betterment of the society.  Electronic devices like mobile phone, chargers, keyboards, headphones etc. become trash very quickly. It is essential to dispose them in a responsible manner because many electrical gadgets contain hazardous substances like arsenic, lead and brominated flame retardants which lands in the landfills from where toxic chemicals leach into the environment. Our E waste awareness plan intends to create awareness amongst people to generate less of e-waste by proper usage of electronic items,  ensure that e-waste is not directly handed over to ordinary trash collectors and electronic items which are not needed are put in e-trash bin in the school.

 
WASTE SEGREGATION
 

Waste segregation being a major concern, the students of class VIII carried out a hands on activity by making students of classes IV and V throw waste in proper dustbins. They were told the difference between the blue and green dustbins and what exactly are biodegradable and non-bio degradable waste.

Eco club students of class XI painted the dustbins using doodles, to convey a message regarding segregation of bio-degradable and non-bio degradable waste

BUILDING HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT

Awareness and understanding of Environmental issues is an essential part of every student's learning. It helps to encourage awareness of the environment, leading to active participation in resolving environmental problems. The school has created awareness among the students, through workshops on protection and management of the environment and on ways to celebrate eco-friendly festivals like Diwali and Holi.  Activities sending healthy messages to students, woven into school days, like poster designing for promoting a cracker free Diwali, making of packaging material using newspapers, recycling paper waste to make items for sale and for use on days of events, setting up stalls for sale of smokeless diyas and herbal colours for holi are part of this sensitization.   Through active participation of the students in the prudent and rational use of natural resources like water and electricity, the school has generated awareness that each individual can, by his own behaviour and action, provide satisfactory solutions to environmental issues.

     
World Environment Day celebrated on 05 June 2020

World Environment Day is celebrated on 5th June every year. Its aim is to raise global awareness and mobilise action for environment protection.

In the year 1972, the United Nations Conference on the Human environment was held from 5th June to 16th June. After that, every year on 5th June, it has been hosted by different countries of the world with different theme.
This year's theme of World Environment Day is BIODIVERSITY.

Biodiversity boosts ecosystem productivity where each species, no matter how small, all have an important role to play.

For example:

And so, while we dominate this planet, we still need to preserve the diversity in wildlife.

To keep up with the pace our CLIMATE WARRIORS have contributed to mother earth in a variety of ways.

  • Making bird feeders
  • Planting trees
  • Writing slogans
  • Making posters

Towards a pollution-free planet

Human activities contaminate ecosystems around the world—from pole to pole, from the highest mountains to the ocean deep. Toxic chemicals can be found in pristine forests and the blood of Arctic animals. Litter floats beneath the surface of oceans miles away from land. Even excess noise and light are interrupting natural patterns and disrupting the lives of animals and people.

Pollution today is pervasive and persistent. While the world has achieved significant economic growth over the past few decades, it has been accompanied by large amounts of pollution, with significant impacts on human health and ecosystems and the ways in which some of the major Earth systems processes, such as the climate, are functioning. The posters describes the pollution challenge, explores what is already being done to address pollution, and proposes focused and actionable interventions to address pollution in all its forms. Let us all take a call on the occasion of WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY (5TH JUNE 2020) to act towards a pollution-free planet.

A pollution-free planet is by far and away the best insurance for the survival and well-being of current and future generations of humans and ecosystems.

ADVISORY ON H1N1 VIRUS – SWINE FLU
TIS/ VV/ 2018-19/148                                                                                                                     
January 2019

                     

Dear Parents,

With the reported surge in swine flu cases in Delhi NCR, it is essential that awareness be raised for its prevention, especially among school children who are vulnerable and run the risk of contracting the disease quickly.

SYMPTOMS

The symptoms of Swine Flu mimic those of an ordinary flu.

  • Fever & Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or Stuffy Nose
  • Difficulty in Breathing
  • Other symptoms may include Body Ache, Headache, Fatigue, Chills, Diarrhoea and Vomiting and Blood Stained Sputum

MODE OF TRANSMISSION

Swine flu is contagious and is spread through saliva and mucus particles. It is spread through;     

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Touching a germ-covered surface( telephone, cell phones, computers, door handles, door bells, pens, toys etc)and then touching one's eyes or nose
  • Close contact with an infected person ( hand shake, hug, kiss )

PRECAUTIONS

It is advised to take the following precautions to help prevent the spread of swine flu and other viruses:

Stay Home

  • If a child is suffering from fever, cough & cold or have any flu-like symptoms, do not send children to school or to play in the parks etc
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Children suffering from any chest & breathing problems like asthma should completely avoid excessive much physical activity like running, dancing etc.

Coughing

Instruct children to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue/handkerchief when coughing or sneezing.

Wash Hands Frequently

  • Wash hands constantly to avoid infection.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
  • All children must carry a bottle of SANITIZER in their bags. Please teach them its use and the reason why it is important. Anything touched may be affected, so keeping hands clean will help.

Good Habits

Practice other good health habits which will keep us strong and more resistant to diseases

  • Getting plenty of sleep
  • Staying physically active
  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Eating nutritious food

Crowded Places.

Avoid group activities and crowded public places.

Let me assure you that the health and well-being of our students is our top priority.  The school is already undertaking regular sanitization and fumigation.  We do not wish to cause panic but we need to be aware & take all possible measures to protect our children. We seek your co-operation in these efforts to safeguard the health of all students.

Dear Parent,

This is with reference to the ban on the use of steel/ metal water bottles in the school. It is a well thought of decision, taken due to multiple incidents of injuries incurred by students due to these bottles. We hope you will understand and appreciate that the decision was taken to ensure the safety of majority of the students. The health concerns, which may arise due to the usage of plastic water bottles, were discussed with various groups of parents. After a market survey, it was found that there is an array of high grade BPA free water bottles easily available which are not harmful. Also, the school provides safe and cold drinking water in the water coolers, throughout the day. The students can drink water or fill their bottles whenever they feel the need.

We solicit your support and cooperation to make the school premises safe for all.

Dear Parents,

We have always endeavoured to provide your ward a secure environment in the school. This, however, is not possible without your cooperation.  We would like to remind you of a few points that have been emphasized in the past too.

  1. If your ward travels in a private van, please ensure
  • the van is well maintained, running on CNG and NOT on LPG.
  • if it is a CNG van, there should be NO SEAT above the CNG cylinder.
  • the van driver and conductor should be license holder, experienced and have police verification report.
  • there is a conductor and a lady attendant in the van.
  • the driver is in a proper uniform and carrying his I Card (given by the owner).
  • that at no point the driver / conductor is under the influence of alcohol.
  • there has been a check on how old the van is and van is in good condition.
  • there is a fire extinguisher and complete first aid kit in the van.
  • the telephone number and other contact details of the owner, driver and conductor of the van and the details of the route covered by the van are with you.
  • you are at the van stand five minutes(bothways) to avoid confusion / mishap.

Overcrowded vans are a threat to your ward’s safety, so as far as possible, try to have your ward travel by the school bus. In case your ward travels by private transport, please fill in the undertaking and send it back to the class teacher latest by Monday 23 April’2018

  1. We appreciate that in response to our previous reminders, a large number of parents now park their cars away from the school and encourage their wards to walk to the school gate. However, there are still many who insist on parking in front of the gate. We would like to reiterate that the main gate is where the majority of the students enter and disperse and thus it is necessary that the approach to this gate be kept free and open, for the safety of students.
  1. The area around the school is a NO HONKING zone. We request you to refrain from blowing the horn in the vicinity of the school.

As role models for the students, it is imperative that we as parents and teachers conduct ourselves in a way that is exemplary.

Dear Parents,

We are writing this circular to you in order to explain our fees and why they increase once every year.

The regular annual increase in fees of 10% goes towards the cost of inflation as well as increase of staff salaries thrice a year, inclusive of two dearness allowance and one annual increment every year,  as announced by the Govt.  All maintenance expenses become more expensive too because of inflation every year. The introduction of GST has unfortunately resulted in a further sharp increase in the cost of all services as well as of most items purchased by us on a regular basis.

It is very pertinent to mention here that we, as a Private School, are bound under law to pay the Central Govt Pay Scales, which are quite high as compared to the job market. The Govt, once every 10 years, holds a Pay Commission to decide the new pay scales.

The most recent such announcement took place wef from 1/1/16. The pay structure for all staff was revised as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission. You would be pleased to know that we have started paying the Seventh Pay Commission salaries without increasing the fees by an additional 15% which the schools have been allowed to do. Instead, we have managed within the normal 10% hike. (In today’s date, our salaries have increased by approx. 40% over the previous level.)

We believe in setting high standards of education, and this is only possible by selecting the best of the teachers available. Everything comes with a cost and to ensure the quality of teaching staff it is imperative to pay them salaries commensurate with their experience and credentials.

Our fee structure is one of the lowest in Delhi, keeping in mind the infrastructure and facilities provided to the students. We have state of the art computer labs with one computer per student, the latest software, licensed and original. We have a fully functional robotics lab and students have been winning accolades in various robotics competitions. All our class rooms are fitted with LCD projectors and smart boards and we have a very active Computer Aided Learning programme. Regular training and capacity building programmes are organized for teachers to keep them updated with the latest technology and teaching methodology. Our students have been making us proud in various academic and co-curricular competitions only because of the kind of facilities we provide in the school.

It is our earnest endeavour to provide students with the best resources and we can very proudly say that our parents have been very supportive in the development of the school and have always helped us in implementing the rules for the benefit of the students.

We sincerely hope the above explanation puts all your questions and doubts you may have had, to rest.

Dear Parents

The recent cases of abuse and accidents of children at school premises have created anxiety and concern amongst parents regarding safety of their children. At Tagore International School, safety of students has always been given top priority. I would like to apprise you all of the safety measures already in place:

  • We have CCTV cameras at all three school gates, in the corridors, the school ground, the bus yard and the boundary of the school. The footage from all these cameras is monitored regularly.
  • Police verification of all support staff including drivers and conductors is done before appointing any member.
  • We conduct regular meetings with all our teaching and non teaching staff members, and reiterate the importance of student safety in the school.
  • In all our buses, we have atleast one teacher and a lady supervisor who travels till the last bus stop.
  • Every floor has the required lady support staff who is posted outside the washrooms and who also clean the washroom every hour.
  • We have a separate washroom for our male support staff, which is outside the building, and they do not use the washrooms on the classroom floors.  However, the lady support staff uses the girls’ washroom on their respective floors.
  • We have a proper exit plan in case of an emergency which has been put on the notice board in each classroom.
  • We conduct fire drills on regular basis for students to know their exit routes.
  • We do not tolerate bullying or any kind of vandalizing of school property. Regular announcements are made during assembly and in the classes reiterating this message. Strict action is taken in case of any such incident.
  • All visitors/ parents entering the school have to provide complete details at the gate, about themselves, the purpose of their visit and the person they will be meeting. We are implementing some more measures to make the school a safer place for our students:
  • No student will be allowed to enter school before 7.30 am as our support staff arrives only at 7.30 am. Students who come for coaching will also enter school premises once the concerned sport s teacher arrives.
  • All washrooms will open only at 8 am, except the one on the ground floor, which will be fully monitored.
  • We are implementing a buddy program for the Junior section where all students will move in pairs outside the class - while visiting the washroom or going to the school ground.

To make our children more safe and secure we would like to enlist your support in the following ways

  • Talk to them about good touch and bad touch, about avoiding interaction with strangers and reporting any and every concern /incident, however irrelevant it may seem.
  • If you notice any change in your ward’s behavior, please inform the school authorities and meet the counselor so that we can help the student at the right time.
  • Keep the channel of communication open with your wards and give them a patient hearing for even the smallest of matters.
  • If your ward is not attending school, you must inform the teacher by email or sms not later than 10 minutes after the official start of school.
  • Avoid talking in a derogatory manner about the teacher / school in front of your ward as it destroys the trust bond between the students and the school. If you have any concern, you can write to us or meet us personally to discuss
  • From now on all parents will need to carry their school ID card when visiting school or picking their wards. Parents who do not bring their ID cards will not be allowed in.

We the school and parent community, want our children to be safe and happy and our goal is to give them secure environment that helps them to blossom into responsible human beings.

4. All virtual classrooms adhere to their time tables and stay abuzz with e-learning modules, discussions with teachers, well researched videos and fun worksheets, to create a sense of school routine.

5. The Physical Education, Art, Music and Dance teachers too, have made a virtual entry into the homes of students through their online lessons.

The agility with which the students and teachers have faced this new challenge is evident in the appreciation mails, messages and calls received by us. We, in turn, thank our parents for the tremendous support extended by them to the teachers and their wards in this novel learning gateway. 

Let us work together to overcome this pandemic. It is only a matter of time that we will be back to our bustling classrooms and regular school life!

Till then….. Stay Positive, Stay Connected and Stay Safe.

Advisory on Coronavirus

Dear Parent

You will be aware from extensive media coverage in recent days, that Chinese and global health authorities are working together to contain an outbreak of a new Coronavirus (2019-nCoV).  This is one of a family of viruses which can cause illness ranging from the common cold at one end of the severity spectrum, to serious global pandemics at the other.  It is too early to predict the severity or potential for further spread of 2019-nCoV, but the situation is evolving rapidly and additional cases in new areas are expected in the foreseeable future. Kindly find detailed information on the Coronavirus to keep you and your loved ones safe.

 

Health Advisory for Coronavirus

  • Travelers to China, as well as those traveling throughout areas in Asia for the Lunar New Year should take precautions to prevent illness:
    • Avoid contact with others who are ill with fever or cough.
    • Wash hands frequently (and before eating) with soap and water for 20 seconds. If no soap is available use an alcohol-based hand rub.
    • When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw tissue away immediately and wash hands.
    • Avoid "wet" markets, live animal markets, or contact with farm or wild animals.
    • Avoid consumption of raw or undercooked animal products. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.
  • Those who are sick, especially with fever, cough, or respiratory illness should NOT travel and should seek medical care. Anyone traveling while ill may be subject to screening at the airport and may be quarantined.
  • Those with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should avoid others and practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands), and seek medical care.
    • For individuals from affected areas who are sick with respiratory illness and may need to go out in public (e.g. to a medical appointment), face masks are recommended to prevent infection of others.
    • Caregivers of those from affected areas who are sick with respiratory illness should follow CDC guidance for preventing spread of illness or becoming ill themselves.
  • Travelers returning from Wuhan and other areas in China should monitor their temperature for fever (38 C or 100.4 F) and be aware of other symptoms of illness such as cough or shortness of breath for 14 days after return. If any these symptoms develop, contact your doctor or medical center and inform them of your symptoms and travel history, so you can receive instructions on where/how to receive medical review without exposing others. Those who are ill should detail their travel history to their treating medical provider.

Symptoms

Primary symptoms are fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, though patients may have varying degrees of these symptoms. While the incubation period is thought to be between 2 and 14 days, much remains unknown about the virus, including the original source and how easily it is transmitted.

Screening of Travelers

Travelers from Wuhan/China may be subject to enhanced screening measures when entering other countries. The United States has activated screening at 5 airports: San Francisco (SFO), New York (JFK) and Los Angeles (LAX), Atlanta (ATL), and Chicago (ORD).

Although screening is not yet taking place in Washington, DC, points of entry, that could change at any time.

In most cases screening will consist of temperature scan and questions regarding travel destinations and history, with referral to local public health authorities for further follow up if screening is positive. To avoid complications or delays from screening, staff who are ill, especially with fever or respiratory symptoms, should seek medical assistance before further travel.
