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,

The Government of India has launched an intensive deworming outreach programme. This mass-based deworming programme for children of school age will reduce the harm caused by parasitic worm infections in millions of children in India. 

On Friday 10 August 2018, the National Deworming Day, the government will provide the deworming medicine “Albendazole” to schools. This is to be administered to the students of Classes VI to XII in the school the same day.  Students who are unwell and/or on any other medication will not be administered this medicine in school.

Although this medicine is safe for children, some children may experience side effects like dizziness, nausea, headache and vomiting. This is due to the passage of the worms in the intestines in response to the medicine. These symptoms tend to pass over a short period of time. However, in case there is any adverse reaction, we have been told to take the student to the nearest government hospital. This is, however, entirely a government initiative and the school will not be responsible for any side effects resulting from administration of the medicine.

In case you want your ward to receive this medicine in school, please send us a letter, latest by tomorrow, Thursday, 09 August 2018 expressing the same.

Dear Parent,

At Tagore International School, we strive to provide a safe environment for our students. Considerable care is taken to make the school a safe haven for your ward. It has been noticed lately that metal water bottles are becoming a threat to the safety and security of our students. Some students have been found throwing these steel bottles at each other, resulting in unpleasant consequences. These incidents have forced the school authorities to ban all steel and metal water bottles hereafter. All these metal bottles, if brought to school, will be confiscated. Kindly arrange for an appropriate water bottle for your ward so that the campus continues to be a joyful place for the students.

Dear Parents,

Adolescence is a period of both, daring discovery and disorientation.  There are issues of independence and self identity and spontaneous disregard for authority.  This often confuses the parents, who find themselves wondering what to do to help their child. Ms Jaya Aiyappa, a renowned Psychologist, Counsellor Trainer and Teacher Educator is a recognized authority in guiding parents at this crucial juncture. She will address parents of classes IX to XI  on Saturday 4 August 2018 from 9.30 am to 10:30 am in Audi I. I invite you to attend this session and take back some valuable tips that would benefit you and your ward.

You are requested to send your consent LATEST BY WEDNESDAY 01 AUGUST 2018.

Dear Parent,

We sincerely hope that your ward has settled in Class XI and is comfortable with the stream/ subject(s) that she/he has opted for. We would like to inform you that no change in stream/ subject(s) will be allowed after Fri. 27 July 2018. As per CBSE guidelines your ward has to study the same subjects for two years. Therefore, no request for change will be entertained after the above mentioned date.

It has been observed that there is a drastic drop in students’ academic performance in class XI. Students tend to take academics lightly in class XI, which not only affects their grades, but also impacts their class XII result. Class XI result is equally important, if your ward is applying for admission to universities abroad.

We would like to advise you to guide your ward about the importance of academic grades in class XI so that she/he does not face disappointment at the end of the session.

For a student to be eligible for promotion to class XII:

  1. She / he must secure a minimum of 33% in each of the five subjects. In case of subjects involving practical work, she / he must obtain 33% marks in theory and 33% in practical separately.
  1. It is mandatory for a student to pass in English for promotion to the next class. If she/he scores less than 33% in English, she/he will be detained in class XI.
  1. If she / he scores less than 33% in one subject, it will be considered as ‘compartment’. The student will have to write the ‘compartment’ exam within two weeks of declaration of the result and score above 33% for promotion to the next class.
  1. If she / he scores less than 33% in two or more subjects, she/he will be detained in class XI.
  1. If she / he opts for a sixth subject, it is mandatory for the student to secure 33% marks in Half Yearly and the Final examinations to continue with that subject in Class XII.

NO REQUEST FOR PROMOTION TO CLASS XII WILL BE ENTERTAINED AT THE END OF THE YEAR IF THE ABOVE CRITERIA IS NOT MET.

Please note that there is an orientation session scheduled for parents and students on Saturday 21 July 2018 at 9 am to explain the academic system to you.  It is mandatory for you to attend the orientation.  Please be punctual

(Rina Singh)

      This will be assessed along with Co-Scholastic assessment on a five point grading scale based on attendance, sincerity, behaviour and values.

5. Stream Allocation Criteria in Class XI

In class XI factors deciding the allotment of stream and subject will be the students’ academic performance in the written test in Mid -Term and Pre-Board Examinations in Class X, and their individual preferences. It is imperative that, as parents, you give due importance to your ward’s academic performance throughout the year so that she/he qualifies for the stream she/ he aspires for.

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.

April’18

Dear Parents,

                                               

Each student in class VI is required to study THREE languages viz. English, Hindi and Sanskrit / French / Mandarin.  English is the first language which each student HAS to study.  All INDIANS will study Hindi compulsorily.  Nationals of other countries will be exempted from studying Hindi as a second language.  The school offers French, Sanskrit and Mandarin as options for the third language.  All students have to opt for ONE of the three i.e. French, Sanskrit or Mandarin.  They have to be certain of their choice as they will have to study the same language for the next three years and no change at a later date or class will be possible.  It is mandatory to pass in the third language in order to be eligible for promotion to the next class.

To be eligible to study French in middle school, the student has to score a minimum of B1 in each area of English in ALL THREE TERMS in class V.  The final decision, however, will rest with the English teacher and the Principal.

In classes IX and X, the school follows the two language formula, as per the guidelines issued by CBSE. English is compulsory and the second language will be based on the languages studied in classes VI-VIII i.e. either Sanskrit / Hindi / French; they can choose one of the three as their second language. Mandarin is not a part of the scheme of studies for secondary school (Class IX- X) as per CBSE. Thus, students who have opted for Mandarin as the third language in classes VI – VIII will have to study Hindi as the second language in  Classes IX – X.

Dear Parent,

“Without change there is no innovation, creativity or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.”

William Pollard

The co-curricular activities offered in our school help our students to nurture their ingenuity through various programmes. Last year we had an overwhelming response to this programme organized by Time of Sports, where our students designed, manufactured and raced a miniature car. This year the school proposes ‘F1 in schools : Season 2’ for the students of classes VI to IX and XI, the objective of which is to prepare them for future roles in finance, technology, engineering and scientific industries.

In its Season 2, students will be mentored by the organisers through 12 interactive sessions to be held on Saturdays in the school premises. Students will also get an option to become certified user of Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD/CAM software. In order to encourage students, the school is providing this fun learning opportunity in the school premises for a subsidised registration fee of 6,500/- as against the actual fee of `8,500/-.Apart from this, other expenses arising during the course of competition will be borne by the students. In case you wish your ward to be a part of this program, kindly deposit the duly filled acknowledgment slip along with the registration fee (in cash only) latest by Monday 16 April 2018 with the class teacher.

 

You can also visit the site: www.timeofsports.com for more details.

December ’17 

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.
