Summarizing the session 2016-17

Happiness is the glow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best. The academic session 2016-17 saw Tagoreans achieving the best in varied fields and making school proud. Here is a glimpse of some of these achievements: 

  • Our Breaking Barriers project launched in 2013, spread its wings to various schools of Delhi. Members of this campaign visited The Indian School, Eicher School, Maharaja Agrasen School and others to  create awareness about the rights of the LGBTQI community. They made presentations and spoke to their peers in these schools, who not only applauded their efforts but were also encouraged to  start similar campaigns in their own schools. The efforts of our campaign were recognized by UNESCO; and Sohini Chakrabarti, President of the club along with Ms. Shivanee Sen, mentor of Breaking Barriers, was invited to their Paris Headquarters in April 2016 to participate in a Ministerial Meeting on the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. 
  • Members of Flawless Flaws have taken several measures to ensure the welfare of acid attack survivors and bridge the gap between them and the society both, in Delhi, and in other cities. They have been successful in sensitizing people in various slums, Mahila Panchyats, police stations and multinational companies  about the easy availability of acid in stores and its misuse, through their nukkad nataks and presentations. Their effort was appreciated and the Vasant Vihar police officials have requested them to make more presentations in areas under their jurisdiction, to create awareness about this issue.
  • Inculcating values of compassion and far-sightedness, our Dare to Rise Campaign focuses on creating and spreading awareness about the harmful nature and long-term effects of drugs. The students of classes IX – XI are working on this project under the able guidance of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. The school has filed a petition for the banning of intoxicating chemicals among items of daily usage, especially correction fluids. Members of this campaign have been successful in creating a presence on social media, too.

They donated stationery items collected from their peers to an NGO Goonj, who has given it to schools in rural areas to promote education. 
  • The members of the Art Society ‘Shrishti’ are proactively involved in various projects within and outside the school. Art from Heart – the annual exposition of art work of classes VI – XII students, was held at Arpana Art Gallery in the month of April. The proceeds from the sale of pantings were added to our annual contribution to acid attack survivors.
  • Five students along with Ms Jayita Ghosh, the music teacher, participated in the 4th International Convention of SPIC MACAY at IIT Guwahati in May. This inspired Aayushi Mehrish and Sahitya Rajagopal of the class of 2016 to launch the Cultural Linkage Club in the school with the help of students from Delhi School of Music.

Dear Parent, 

As per CBSE guidelines, each student in classes VI to VIII is required to study THREE languages.  English is the first language and is compulsory for all. Hindi is the second language and is compulsory for Indian students. However, the nationals of other countries are exempted from studying Hindi.  

The school offers Mandarin, French and Sanskrit as options for the third language.  All students have to opt for any ONE of the three.  They have to be certain of their choice as they have to study the same language for the next three years and no change at a later date or class will be possible.  A student will require to score a minimum of D grade in the final assessment of the third language to be eligible to be promoted to the next class. 

Since there are limited seats in the Mandarin and French sections, the students will be allowed to opt for Mandarin or French on the basis of their grades in English in class V.  The students should get a minimum of B1 in each area of English to be eligible to study these languages.

You are requested to state your order of preference for the third language in the consent slip given below and submit it to the class teacher by Friday 03 February  2017.

Dear parent,

It is important to understand that choosing a career does not mean, simply deciding upon the ultimate career profile. Rather, a person should have the potential to grow with that career and achieve success. Every career option requires a particular aptitude combination that should match with the person's potential ability to grow with that career.  An Aptitude Test helps the student determine what her / his abilities are best suited for. The school, in collaboration with Centre For Career Development, is organising an interest profiling test and one to one counselling sessions for students of class X. This will include:

1. An interest profiling test to identify possible career options. It is a 2 ½ hour test which does not require any preparation and will be administered on Wednesday 28 December 2016 in school. 

2. A one to one session at the school with the student and the parents to:

    • assess academic performance and potential.
    • analyse strengths and weaknesses.
    • detail out career options and make specific career choices
    • work out the subject streams and combinations
    • recommend future course of action.

3. The registration fee for the entire program is ₹ 1250/- to be paid in cash. 


Please note that the subject stream selection of your ward will depend on the cut off specified for each stream as informed by circular no TIS/VV/2016-17/033 dated April 2016. The result of this aptitude test will not have any bearing on the stream allotted by the school. 

If you are interested in your ward taking this interest profiling test, please send the registration fee in cash, along with the consent slip, latest by Friday 16 December 2016.

Dear Parents 

The importance of fundamentals in Science and Math cannot be overemphasized, and a clear understanding of concepts in these subjects play a pivotal role when a student steps out into the domain of higher education and then into the professional world. In fact all competitive, aptitude and professional exams lik  NTSE, JEE, AIIMS, AFMC, CAT, GMAT, SAT etc have a significant component focussing on the fundamentals. Hence the need of the hour is to build a strong fundamental base. Keeping this in mind, the school, in collaboration with PACE – IIT & Medical, is planning to organise foundation building sessions in Science and Math for students of class X. The focus of the programme is to:

  • hone academic skills to a professional level
  • foster out- of- the-box thinking 
  • boost confidence in order to excel in school assessment and competitive exams
  • increase levels of understanding and application of concepts
  • teach time management and stress management

Classes will commence on Monday 22 August’16 and will continue till Tuesday 24 January 2017.  The schedule for classes will be as follows:







Mental Ability


Every Monday

8 am to 9 am



Mental Ability

(Math, Phy & Chem)

Every Monday & Tuesday

8 am to 9 am


If you wish to enrol your ward in this programme, please send the consent form duly filled and signed by  Monday 22 August 2016.
