Dear Parents

 

It is the dream of many parents to get their ward enrolled in good universities abroad, especially in the colleges at USA. Thus, it is our endeavor to empower our students with the necessary skills to help them with the overseas admission process. One such initiative is to familiarize the students with SAT, which is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States.

The PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary SAT / National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) is an important step in helping students prepare for the top most universities. For most students, PSAT is the first real exposure to the SAT which is a standardized multiple-choice assessment of 2 hours and 45 minutes duration and tests a student’s skills across Math and Evidence Based Reading and Writing. Even if students do not plan to take the SAT, the PSAT/NMSQT can offer very meaningful insights into a student’s skills and abilities, and also help students prepare for other similar standardized/competitive exams in India and other countries.

The College Board usually charges $16 per student for the PSAT/NMSQT; however, an additional administrative fee to cover other costs may be added.  You will receive another circular regarding the exact registration amount in July 2019.

Coaching is NOT required or recommended for the PSAT. Students who wish to prepare for the test, can use free SAT prep resources on Khan Academy’s website (www.khanacademy.org/sat), developed in partnership with the College Board. A free PSAT sample test is available at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat-suite-assessments/practice/practice-tests that students can use for practice.

This year; PSAT is scheduled for Wednesday, 16 October 2019. If you are interested in your ward taking this test, please fill the attached consent slip and mail it back by Thursday, 09 May 2019.

Dear Parent

As per the guidelines given in CBSE Circular F.1002/CBSE/Dir(Acad)/Mathematics/2019 dated 10 January 2019, henceforth,  two levels of Examination will be held in the subject of Mathematics in the Board examination for Class X from the academic session ending March 2020. The nomenclature for the two Examinations will be Mathematics-Standard and Mathematics-Basic. Although the syllabus, classroom teaching and internal assessment for both exams will remain the same; the difficulty level for the exam will be different. Mathematics-Basic will be the easier level of examination. The school will offer these two levels of Exam during the Revision Test and Pre Board exam.

Mathematics Standard will be meant for students who wish to pursue Mathematics in their +2 level whereas Mathematics Basic will be for the students who are not keen on pursuing Mathematics at the Senior Secondary level.  However, according to the CBSE circular, in case a student clears the Mathematics-Basic Exam in Board exam of 2020 and desires to pursue Mathematics at Senior Secondary level, she/he shall be given an option to appear in Mathematics-Standard at the time of Compartment exams.

Please note that the students will need to choose between the two levels of Examination in September 2019 when the List of Candidates appearing in Board Examination 2020 will be submitted to CBSE by the school.

We request you to guide your ward to choose the level of examination, keeping in mind her / his aptitude for Mathematics and the stream she / he wishes to select in Class XI.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

The Centre for Appearance Research at the University of the West of England (UWE) in the United Kingdom is conducting an exciting new research project, in collaboration with researchers at Lady Shri Ram College for Women in Delhi, which aims to improve the body image and self-esteem of young people throughout India. 

The issue:

Body image is a leading concern for young people in India. Global research shows that low body confidence holds young people back from reaching their full potential, with over 60 per cent of girls avoiding activities they love because they feel bad about their looks. This includes important life activities like trying out for teams and clubs, putting their hand up in the classroom, dancing, going to parties and even giving an opinion. When young people choose not to participate fully in this way, they are missing out on opportunities to grow and develop their capabilities in other ways, and we as a society miss out.

 

What would the research project involve?

The research project would involve a series of fun and interactive body image lessons.  The lessons will be delivered in your child’s classroom by body image experts from India, who are experienced in delivering body image lessons in schools and conducting research with young people.

It is very important for us to make sure that the lessons we run are beneficial. As a part of the project, your ward will be invited to complete a series of questionnaires on their body image and well-being over a period of three months. The students will also be asked to provide demographic information about their parents, e.g. qualifications, occupation, access to mobile phone etc. The students will not be pressurised to complete the worksheets nor will they be used for assessment or for any data collection purpose. It is entirely your child’s choice as to what they want to share with the researchers. We will reassure your child that there are no right or wrong answers and that no judgments will be made on the basis of what they write.

 

 What are the possible benefits of taking part?

The possible benefits of completing this study include your child reflecting on some very important issues concerning media, friendship, communication, and other influences that can affect young people’s body image and self-esteem.

 

What are the possible disadvantages of taking part?

Although participation in the research will provide positive insights, it may raise sensitive issues. In the unlikely event that this occurs, support strategies will be put in place.

 

What about confidentiality?

The information your ward gives will be treated with the highest level of confidentiality. Your child will be assigned a unique participation code and their name and identity will never be connected to their responses. Information that would make it possible to identify your child or any other child will never be included in any sort of report. Their responses will be written up and the data may be published in an academic journal or elsewhere. The data will only be accessible to those working on the project.

 

Does my child have to take part?

Your child’s participation in this research is entirely voluntary. They have the right to answer as many or as few questions as they wish. They also have the right to opt out of the study at any time by informing their teacher. They will not need to provide a reason for opting out. An alternative activity will be arranged for them and they will not be penalised in any way. Please note that even if you give permission for your child to participate in this research project, your child is free to refuse to participate.

 

What do I have to do next?

We would be very grateful if you could consent for your ward to take part in this study. If you decide that you are happy for your ward to take part in the research, you need to return the consent slip latest by 8th April 2019.

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

Technology has become an inseparable part of our lives. Children of today have access to a variety of online games. With the increase in internet and mobile usage by children, online games addiction has become more prominent.

We want to make you aware about online games like Fortnite, Momo Challenge and many others. These are highly addictive and continuous exposure to such games is hampering the children’s mental development. It is leading to an increase in aggressive behavior, which can be fatal, and decrease in the level of their pro-social interactions.

The Momo challenge consists of a variety of self-harming dares, which become increasingly risky as the game progresses and finally culminates in a suicide challenge. The game involves challenges that encourage teenagers/children /and any other user to engage in a series of violent acts.

Fortnite is a free-to-play online game where up to a hundred players can play at one time. Players are asked to scavenge supplies, build structures and find weapons to eliminate each other, until one person is left. Players can play alone or in teams, and can opt for audio chat with their teammates who, most of the time, are strangers.

We request you to talk to your ward about responsible use of the internet and about cyber security. Keeping a constant check on their internet usage and online activities will ensure that they are not falling prey to such games.

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.

  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.
